Your next soda
could have cannabis in it. 😮
A new generation of food founders are infusing sodas, beers, and snacks with cannabidiol
(often known as CBD) to alleviate pain, inflammation, depression, anxiety, stress and other illnesses.
CBD isn't "new." The compound was first extracted from cannabis in the 40's by Harvard chemist Roger Adams, who thought it was completely useless and moved on to other research. His work was picked up in the 60's, leading to the worldwide CBD craze sweeping your local convenience store. Poor Roger. 😢
CBD can be infused into really anything. The extract doesn't include THC, which is what causes the psychoactive symptoms associated with getting high, and makes it legal in all 50 states. Don't be surprised if you see CBD offered at your local indie coffee shop. ☕
A new CBD soda just launched yesterday: DRAM's Lemongrass CBD Sparkling Water
is exactly what it sounds like, and it ships anywhere in the US. There are THC varieties too: California Dreamin'
went through Y Combinator last year and is selling in dispensaries across California. Eaze
has raised $50M+ to deliver cannabis products directly to your door.
Or... if you want to grow everything yourself, LEAF
is an automated plug-n'-plant cannabis grower for your house. It's even won an illustrious Golden Kitty in 2016.
