Coca-Cola is considering a new formula with a new special ingredient: weed. The soda company is in talks with Canada-based pot farmer Aurora Cannabis to create beverages infused with marijuana. But they’re not trying to help anyone catch a buzz, instead Coke says it’s “closely watching the growth of non-psychoactive CBD as an ingredient in functional wellness beverages.”
It’s the THC in pot that gets you high, but CBD is also in marijuana and doesn’t have that effect. It’s being promoted as a natural way to ease pain and inflammation, and treat anxiety, depression and sleeplessness, too. Bloomberg reports Coke is looking at “health-focused beverages that will ease inflammation, pain, and cramping.” So it won’t get you stoned, but it might make you feel better.
Soooo uhhmm....Can we pre-order this?
