Cannabis-infused beers, wines and spirits already exist in several cannabis markets. But what about a beer actually brewed from cannabis? Province Brands in Canada is actually making its new beer using the entire cannabis plant.
Each beer is said to have 6.5mg of THC and no alcohol, Esquire reports. The alcohol is removed, so it’s just a high that’s felt and no alcohol intoxication. The company plans to be ready to distribute when Canada gets edibles regulations in place, which is expected to happen in early 2019.
Dooma Wendschuh, CEO and co-founder of Province Brands, said, “The beer hits you very quickly, which is not common for a marijuana edible.”
The flavor of the beer, according to Wendschuh, is said to be “dry, savory, less sweet than a typical beer flavor.”
