Coca-Cola is Closely Eyeing the Cannabis-Infused Drink Market
In 1886 they used coca-leaf extract, and maybe in 2025, you could see CBD extract in their active ingredients list..
The Coca-Cola Company has reportedly announced on Monday to Bloomberg that the company is closely watching the growing marijuana-infused drinks market, and is starting to have talks with Canada’s Aurora Cannabis Inc.
A statement released to Bloomberg by Coca-Cola spokesman, Kent Landers, stating “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. No decisions have been made at this time.”
They also clarified, you won’t be getting stoned off of their drinks, because “the discussions with Aurora are focused on CBD-infused drinks to ease inflammation, pain, and cramping, CBD, or cannabidiol, is the chemical in the pot plant often used for medicinal purposes and doesn’t produce the high that comes from THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol”
