How to Make Cannabis-Infused Sparkling Watermelon-Basil Water

Watermelon does not just taste sweet and refreshing, this fruit has a lot of health advantages, too. For example:

  • It keeps you hydrated.
  • It is rich in vitamin C.
  • In animal tests, watermelon seemed to help lower inflammation.

The basil in this beverage gives it a nice herbal kick, and adds magnesium and vitamin A to the drink.
