Different Types of Cannabinoid-Infused Beers

Different Types of Cannabinoid-Infused Beers

Breweries do not like being left behind as CBD becomes legal across much of the United States. CBD, often known as cannabidiol, has made its way into many products. CBD capsules and athlete muscle balms are two wonderful examples. Many large beverage businesses are beginning to promote CBD-infused drinks. It's hardly surprising that the relaxed beer sector, which is frequently connected with cannabis, wants a place in the market, and it will achieve it.

When it comes to beer and cannabinoids, there is a logical link. Cannabis and hops are both members of the Cannabaceae plant category. That is why there are so many beers for fans who are always looking for new flavors. Don't be shocked if, as cannabis becomes more accepted throughout the world, more breweries begin to use the plant to improve their brews. Breweries are mixing alcohol with cannabinoids such as CBD and THC. They are, however, capitalizing on the health obsession by combining CBD oil with non-alcoholic drinks.

What is Cannabinoid-Infused Beer?

Cannabinoid-infused beer is a beer that has been infused with cannabidiol (CBD) or tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Cannabinoid-infused beer is also non-alcoholic and has little to no calories. While you're probably wondering, "How Does a Brewer Make Cannabinoid-Infused Beer?" Cannabinoid-infused beer is made with barley in the same way as regular beer is and then infused with cannabinoid oils such as THC and CBD oils. So, here are some types of cannabinoid-infused beers:

Two Flowers IPA By Coalition 

Two Flowers IPA, produced by Coalition Brewing Company, features the core style of a west coast IPA that has been laced with CBD. The end product of the brewing procedure is a light, crisp, bitter, and pleasant beer. The bitter grassiness heightens the hop bitterness, while the citrusy terpenes in the CBD balance the hop scents and flavors. Reviewers have reported the experience of drinking a couple of beers in a hot tub. They described the sensations as "elevating" and "naturally relaxing."

Hemp Pale Ale By The Hemperor

One of the country's major brewers, New Belgium, had started working on cannabis-derived beers and is now producing hemp, CBD, and THC-infused beers. The Hemperor, unlike most of the beers on this list, is widely available. Those who had consumed the beer, whether for sheer fun or checking, will recall how intense the weed-like fragrance was when you broke open the top. The hemp in The Hemperor does little more than enhancing the hoppy qualities of the Hemp Pale Ale.

Enough Said By Two Roots

Two Roots offers a wide variety of cannabis-infused beers, all of which are less than 0.5 percent alcohol by volume. The IPA-spired New West and Tropical Infamy, a new twist on a hefeweizen, both deliver 5MG of THC with a surge of beer taste. With 10MG of THC, Mango Dango, Grapefruit Fight, and Straight Dank can amp up the delicious hoppiness. Shadow Monk reduces the THC content but retains the non-alcoholic Dubbel-inspired beer, ideal for an after-dinner pleasure.

Grainwave Belgian-Style White Ale By Ceria

Grainwave Belgian-Style White Ale is a delicious, standard-size beer prepared with blood orange peel and coriander to produce a white ale-like drink in the Belgian style. The beer has been mixed with THC to give it a unique taste on the Belgian standard. The alcohol content of the beer is less than 0.5 percent by volume. Grainwave cannabis beer is available for purchase on the official website as well as in a variety of cannabis dispensaries.

Humboldt Brown

Unlike many cannabis-derived beers, Humboldt opted to steer clear of the hop-heavy IPA and pale ale styles for their hemp beer. Instead, Humboldt chose a unique approach to their beer. The Humboldt Hemp Ale is made with roasted hemp seeds to give off the earthy-dank herbal flavors. The finest thing about a well-brewed brown ale is how a well-hopped schedule can enhance it. That is also true in this scenario.

Take Five By Green Times

Green Times Brewing beers have labels that look like an IPA. Take Five, a New England IPA, is made with an enticing hop mix of Citra, Mosaic, Columbus, and Simcoe. However, when a small amount of CBD is added, there is a great additional mental relaxation to the high from its 5% ABV. The beer will trick you into thinking you're drinking a superb beer. You'll have to go to the United Kingdom to obtain a taste.

Hop Chronic By gLeaf & Flying Dog

The labeling of Flying Dog Brewing Co. is eye-catching on its own. The beers, such as the Raging Bitch Belgian IPA and Doggie Style Pale Ale, are fantastic. And now, Flying Dog's collaboration with gLeaf Medical Cannabis presents a wonderful representation of what a cannabis beer can be. The beer is non-alcoholic, but what's the point of alcohol when you're sipping on a cannabis drink?

Bubba Kush Root Beer By Keef Brands

This THC-infused root beer isn't technically a beer, but it's just as tasty! Drink it on its own or combine it with ice cream to make the perfect root beer float. Bubba Kush Root Beer was named Best Edible at the 2015 High Times Cannabis Cup! Keef Brands' items are available in clinics around the country where cannabis beer is available for sale.

Lagunitas By Hi-Fi Hops

Lagunitas is another beer that has its fair share of cannabis connections. Hi-Fi Hops has produced this excellent type of Cannabis-Infused beer. First, it capitalizes on the THC trend, combining the non-alcoholic effect with the sparkling water fad. Hi-Fi Hops company provides a range of THC and CBD concentrations while containing no alcohol.

Pale Haze By High Style

High Style Brewing's Pale Haze is a THC-infused cannabis beer with less than 0.5 percent alcohol content. High Style is San Diego's first brewery to solely create Cannabis-infused beers. Pale Haze is brewed with 10mg of THC and is influenced by the Pale Ale. Pale Haze is offered in a variety of sites and retailers where cannabis is available.
