9 Cannabis-Infused Beers to Drink on 4/20

Calling all stoners, occasional weed smokers, or any beer-lover looking for a smoke-free high: Cannabis THC-infused beer is now a thing and these weed beers are the perfect drink to sip on to celebrate a pot-head’s favourite day; 4/20.

9 Cannabis-Infused Beers to Drink on 4/20

Since the legalization of marijuana in Canada (2018), Uruguay and in some US states, the trend of using cannabis as an ingredient in the brewing process has gained popularity.

There are also stats and reports that show beer consumption has decreased in Canada and in the states where recreational pot is currently legal, it is no surprise why brewers want to “keep up with the times” and start brewing cannabis beers. Many big, macro brewers, like Molson Coors and Steam Whistle have made no secret of the fact that they are also wanting to tap into the marijuana market. Most of these brewer’s goal when brewing “weed beers” is to get rid of the stigma that comes with the use of cannabis.

Most THC infused beers are non-alcoholic and the THC is what causes your “buzz”. Because these beers are alcohol-free, they are most likely healthier for you.

What is cannabis-infused beer and how is it made?

Cannabis-infused beers are beers that are brewed, then infused with either THC or CBD. Not to be confused with Cannabis Beer, which is brewed using stocks and roots from the marijuana plant in place of barley.

What’s the difference between THC-Infused and CBD-Infused Beers?
What does CBD beer do?

CBD beer is made with CBD oils. CBD does not provide a “high” like THC-beer does. Instead, it promotes relaxation and gives off calming effects.

What does THC beer do?

THC-infused beers will provide a high similar to an edible. THC is the psychoactive cannabinoid that provides you with a high– feeling of stimulated senses, lethargy, and sometimes, cravings.

Two Flowers IPA CBD Infused BeerCoalition_TwoFlowers

While we know that CBD doesn’t really count as “cannabis”, we thought we’d include this CBD infused beer in the list anyways.

Brewed by Coalition Brewing Company, Two Flowers IPA has the base style of a west coast IPA that has been infused with CBD (Cannabidiol, a natural substance found in hemp plants). After the brewing process, the result is a light, crisp, bitter and refreshing brew. The bitter grassiness increases the hop bitterness, while the citrusy terpenes (aromatic metabolites found in the oils of all plants) in the CBD balance the aromas and flavours of the hops. As for the effects this beer has on you? Reviewers have described the effect as having a few beers in a hot tub. Others describe sensations such as “elevating” and “naturally calming”. It is important to note that Coalition Brewing is NOT making any specific health claims about the effects of the CBD hemp beer.

ABV: 6% | IBU: 60 | THC: 0mg | CBD: 10mg

 

Where to find Two Flowers IPA CBD Beer:

Two Flowers IPA can be found at varying restaurants, bars, and taprooms around Oregon. Coalition Brewing also offers seven other CBD hemp-infused brews.

 

It is important to note that cannabis THC-infused beers will give you a different type of intoxication than regular alcohol. Please drink responsibly.
