Heineken-owned Laguintas has launched a non-alcoholic cannabis ‘beer’ infused with THC

This year has also seen a number of high-profile drinks companies express interest, or indeed actually invest, in the cannabis sector. As an off-shot of this, many brewers are increasingly experience with low alcohol and non-alcoholic drinks that are infused with substances including THC and CBD.

The latest investment was announced just yesterday, when the world’s largest brewer, AB InBev, and Canadian cannabis company, Tilray, are to invest US$50 million each in a new research partnership to develop a “deeper understanding” of non-alcoholic beverages containing THC and CBD in order to “guide future decisions”.

Among those investing is Heineken, the owner of US craft brewer Lagunitas, which has launched an “IPA-inspired, THC-infused sparkling water”.

Hi-Fi Hops, which was launched on Tuesday 26 June, is available in two versions – one with 10 mg of THC, and one with 5 mg of THC and 5 mg of CBD. The new product will be sold in California’s cannabis dispensaries.
