Coca-Cola

In September this year, reports emerged that drinks giant Coca-Cola was eyeing up a move into cannabis, having reportedly been in talks with Canadian cannabis producer Aurora to develop drinks infused with CBD.

“We are closely watching the growth of non-psychoactive CBD as an ingredient in functional wellness beverages around the world – the space is evolving quickly,” Coca-Cola spokesman Kent Landers told Bloomberg News.

Heather MacGregor, a spokeswoman for Aurora, told Bloomberg that the cannabis producer is interested in entering the CBD-infused drinks space.
