Despite the best efforts of people who think Reefer Madness is a documentary, marijuana is becoming increasingly normalized in the United States and beyond. At this point, legalization in America seems inevitable as more and more people realize weed doesn’t cause users to go insane and spark a series of unfortunate events that ends with someone jumping out of the window (unless it’s laced with angel dust).
The good people of Canada finally realized it might be time to take a more rational approach to weed when they voted to make it legal across the country starting this fall. Plenty of entrepreneurs have kicked their minds into high gear in an attempt to take advantage of the emerging market— including one company that’s created a one-of-a-kind product that’ll take you to a pretty fun place.
According to The Guardian, Province Brand is the first ever company to brew a “beer” made entirely from cannabis (it harnesses the stalk, roots, and other parts of the plant that are typically discarded). While companies like Lagunitas have dreamed up beers with a similar concept, all of those previous products have been brewed traditionally with malt and hopes.
The major difference here is that Province’s product contains barely any alcohol but each bottle packs a punch of 6.5 mg of THC (which means you probably don’t want to crush a six-pack in one sitting unless you’re a seasoned veteran).
The beer is the brainchild of Dooma Wendschuh, who left the comfort of Miami for Toronto right before legalization was voted into effect. He described the flavor and potency, saying:
“The flavour is dry, savoury, less sweet than a typical beer flavour. The beer hits you very quickly, which is not common for a marijuana edible.”
If you’re not able to make the trip up north to try this remember you can always make a bootleg version by adding a few drops of THC tincture to an earthy IPA.
