This UK brewery is selling cannabis oil-infused beer

A brewery in Teeside has become the first in the UK to start selling its own cannabis oil-infused beer, according to the brewers.

The Stockton Brewery Company has come up with the UK’s first beer brewed with cannabis oil following consumers’ rapidly developing taste for weed-based drinks in the US.

The beer, a 3.8% ale billed as “refreshing and blonde” called Buffalo Soldier, contains traces of CBD oil, the non-psychoactive chemical compound found in cannabis.

The ale is named after the reggae song of the same name written by Bob Marley.

CBD oil has become hugely popular in the UK as a health supplement for reducing pain and inflammation, and has also been used to treat insomnia and anxiety.

“The lads were excited about creating the product and are happy to be part of the first ale in the UK to contain cannabis oil,” a Buffalo Soldier spokesperson told Gazette Live.

“The first batch will be ready in six weeks and after many inquiries we’ve got a feeling the product will be in demand and sell out quickly.”

Punters will be able to purchase their own British canabeer next month, with Buffalo Soldier priced at £3.50 per bottle.

Cannabis-laced drinks are already gaining traction in the US drinks industry after a number of states relaxed their own laws around the drug.

Chris Burggraeve, former marketing boss at Budweiser, compared the growth of interest around weed-infused drinks with the rise of craft beer in the US and globally over the past decade.

“The same way that craft beer started and, for the longest time, was ignored and then exploded, there’s no reason why the same thing wouldn’t happen in this space,” Burggraeve told Bloomberg in 2017. “There will be part supplementing and part complementing. The jury is out on how and where that will happen.”

Cannabis-infused drinks have also proved popular elsewhere. In February, a Canadian brewery filed a technology patent for the production of beer brewed from cannabis, using a method that sees the grains traditionally used to make beer completely replaced with marijuana.
