Purple Marijuana Sizzurp Hits LA Market, Swaps Codeine for THC


Want some purple cocktail but feelin' Diet Coke-ish tonight? Well, now you can get slizzard with marijuana-infused sizzurp. Justin Bieber, it's your lucky day: Grape Syzurp with cannabinoids now exists.

The founder of Actabliss, aka the Actaboss, introduced a healthy alternative to the "purple drank," LA Weekly reports. The marijuana syrup essentially removes the potent prescription-strength promethazine and codeine ingredients, while promising the euphoric feeling through the infusion of THC and cannabinoids. Oh, and it's still purple and gooey.

The original sizzurp concoction consists of promethazine, codeine syrup and sugary sodas served in a classy styrofoam cup. The codeine is typically used in pain meds, and promethazine functions as a sedative. Lean has a notorious reputation in the music industry, as it's been linked to the death of Pimp C, multiple hospital visits by Lil Wayne, and, Canada's mistake, Bieber.


Actabliss, based in San Diego, gave free samples on 4/20 (boom) and opened up the market to LA customers for $45 for a 2 oz bottle. Now does it work? Actabliss reportedly stated that the grape syzurp gives that euphoric high for up to 10 hours.

Actaboss tells LA Weekly:

After Actavis [the maker of the prescription promethazine codeine syrup popular with rappers] said they were pulling their stuff from the market, I came up with the concept of taking their label and using it.

I touted it as a healthy alternative to lean. A lot of people who say they want to stop drinking lean are purchasing it. A whole group of people realize it's good medicine and it works for them.

So are we getting healthy, er,  slizzard tonight?
