Colorado: Cannabis Infused Beer Available at Beer Festival... Sort Of

Beer is the main attraction at Denver's Great American Beer Festival. But of course with the advent of legal marijuana, Colorado -- home of more than 200 breweries -- has another big draw. This year, at the Festival, one brewer offered a "cannabis-infused" beer, made with legal hemp oil, but with no THC.

Yes, sadly, the whole story is just half-a-step away from being cool, because commercially made "cannabis beers" aren't allowed under Colorado's legalization law. The THC is stripped from hemp used in the production of legal hemp oil used to make the cannabis-infused beer from Dad & Dude's Breweria, reports Chris Morris at Fortune

That means you won't get a cannabis high from drinking the beer; Indica Double IPA is made with cannabidiol (CBD), the non-psychoactive but medicinal cannabinoid which, though becoming more and more well known, is still obscure enough to have had its name misspelled as "cannabidoil" on Fortune Magazine's website.

Exactly why the beer is "cannabis infused" seems to be a bit unclear, since it isn't psychoactive, and Dad & Dude's cofounder Mason Hembree says the cannabidiol doesn't impact the flavor of the beer at all. Oh, wait, I almost forgot: marketing gimmick.

"Finding a legal hemp oil was difficult," Hembree said. "Locally cultivated cannabis is not legal for brewers, yet."

The DuBe Hemp Energy Shot is a berry flavored, all natural, zero calorie, sugar free, gluten free, GMO free energy shot infused with Hemp Pro 70 Protein Powder "providing smooth energy for hours," claims a company press release. A DuBe CBD Energy Shot is coming soon.

American Seed & Oil Company said it is developing a comprehensive line of cannabis infused products targeting the health and fitness conscious consumer. "The product line is expected to include products developed in house as well as products from partners like DuBe that compliment the overall product line," according to a prepared statement from the company.

In partnership with an established health and fitness recognized brand name partner, American Seed & Oil plans to open later this year, a pilot retail store in Dallas to market cannabis infused beverages and food. The initial products will be infused with hemp to include CBD which the company said is legal in all 50 states.

Cannabis including THC is also planned for when and where laws permit, according to the company.
