The cannabis market is expanding exponentially, and the makers and investors seem to be more enthusiastic about CBD after hemp got the badge of ‘legal’. There has been a lot of talks recently, some rumors and some facts, about several brands venturing into the market of cannabis beverages.
Not all of it was true, but we have found one piece of News that’s bang-on legit that we sourced from USA Today. New Age Beverages is launching a trio of CBD-infused drinks the coming spring, and the name of the trio is bearing the name of Bob Marley.
Debuted this week in San Francisco at the Winter Fancy Food Show, Marley cannabis beverages are going to hit the market in Colorado, Oregon, Michigan, and Washington this spring.
Before We Go Any Further, Let’s Discuss What CBD Is
CBD or cannabidiol is a cannabinoid found in all the species of the cannabis Genus. Cannabinoids are the chemical compounds that are only present in cannabis plants, of course, apart from our own body which produces its own cannabinoids.
Cannabis is made of more than a hundred cannabinoids, but two of those have grabbed all the attention possible, THC and CBD. THC or tetrahydrocannabinol is rather a potent cannabinoid but comes with a high. Yes, the high associated with marijuana is the work of THC.
CBD, on the other hand, imparts a significant number of benefits just like THC, although milder, unlike THC, it doesn’t give a high to the recipient. A win-win for people who want to enjoy the benefits without getting stoned!
So when we talk about cannabis-infused drinks, there are three possibilities, only THC-infused, THC & CBD infused, and CBD-infused drinks. Marley beverages belong to the last! Let’s read further!
The Details That Matter

In fact, cannabis foods and drinks are going to be the blazing trend of the year looking at the pace of the new ventures. CBD water is already doing great in the market because of its efficacy level!
THC infused drinks have already hit the market, and this trio of Marley drinks is going to have only CBD as its main ingredient. When asked about it post-testing of the drinks, the CEO of New Age Beverages, Brent Willis said, “it gave drinkers a relaxed or chilled out feeling”.

The latter has its own line of natural marijuana beverages which makes this amalgamation of institutions apropos on both the ends, formulations and management.
