The founder of the brewing company Blue Moon took on a new challenge: brewing beer from marijuana, which, yes, is really gaining you.
Keith Villa, who had previously worked at Blue Moon for 32 years and invented her Belgian wheat beer, jumped into the growing market for beer filled with cannabis. His new venture, CERIA Brewing Co., will launch its beer in Colorado first, and then move to states like California and Michigan, where recreational marijuana is legal.
The villa has remained close to its blue moon roots with the company's first offer – the Belgian Belgian style Grainwave. It is brewed with orange peel and coriander, and “has a richer, deeper orange character and a slightly different type of bitterness due to cannabinoids,” he said. USA today,
Since the beer is filled with five milligrams of THC, the psychoactive compound in marijuana, which causes a high federal law, prohibits beer from also containing alcohol. But be sure, you still feel the buzz from this brew. Cannabis-infused beer has been released in the United States before, but this is the first time since THC will be available to the public.
Other companies, such as Molson Coors, Svedka, Corona and even Coca-Cola, have expressed interest in entering the market for drinking marijuana, but mostly they used beverages with CBF, a chemical in a pot that does not give you high, but often used relieve pain and anxiety.
THC's first CERIA drink will be available in Colorado in mid-December and is due to arrive in other states in early 2019. Individual bottles will be sold for $ 9, and four packages – about $ 36.
