It’s National Beer Day! Rather than celebrating with a Bud Light, try a cannabis beer instead. Indeed, weed beer is a thing, and it’s way better than your average stout and lager. These alcoholic beverages do not contain THC, so they won’t get your high. However, they are infused with hemp and CBD, both of which are beneficial in their own way. Not to mention, the effects are relaxing and subtle. In honor of National Beer Day, here are six refreshing cannabis beers.
1. Hemp Ale
Humboldt Brewing Co. brews their beer with toasted hemp seeds, which creates a unique and delicious herbal flavor. In fact, Hemp Ale has also won numerous awards, including a gold medal at the LA County Fair.
You won’t get high off this beer, but its flavor will certainly take you to new heights. Of course, it’ll also provide a nice buzz, one that won’t make you feel like crap.
2. Two Flowers
Notably, Oregon’s Coalition Brewing is responsible for the first-ever commercially produced Cannabidiol (CBD) Hemp infused beer. Not only does CBD help process alcohol more effectively, but it’s also beneficial for your health in so many ways.
Each 10 oz beer contains 5 mg of CBD. And yes, it’s completely legal.
3. Hemp Hop Rye
O’Fallon Brewery also brews their beer with toasted hemp seeds. While they have many different types of beer, the Hemp Hop Rye is one of the best. In addition to it being flavorful, it’s also rather smooth.
Some say it tastes like caramel, while others say it has a sort of nutty flavor. It’s one of those beers that gets better with each sip. Not to mention, it’s one of the most refreshing amber ales around.
4. Stoner Duck
If you’re a sucker for great marketing, and of course great beer, then you’ll love Venice Duck Brewery‘s Stoner Duck. The label isn’t the only thing you’ll enjoy, though.
Stoner Duck is a brown hemp ale and has a nutty, earthy taste. Also, it has a mild fruit flavor, making it somewhat bitter. Still, it’s probably one of the best brown ales you’ll ever taste.
5. Hopportunity Knocks
Do you enjoy American ales? If so, you’ll want to try Caldera Brewing Company‘s Hopportunity Knocks. It has grapefruit and grassy aromas, with a sweet caramel taste.
Overall, this beer is flavorful and well balanced. Some think it has a bitter aftertaste, though. Other than that, you should have no complaints when throwing a few of these back.
6. General Washington’s Secret Stash
Another beer that contains CBD is Dad and Dudes Breweria‘s General Washington’s Secret Stash. The next time you’re in Denver, you’ll want to pay the brewery a visit just for this IPA brew.
What exactly makes CBD-infused beer so special? Co-owner Mason Hembree can tell you,
Cannabinoids are a miracle compound, and I thought it would be a responsible choice to put them into beer. They are an antioxidant and neuro-protectant that have a lot of health benefits.
Each pint contains 4 mg of cannabinoids. And the best part of all, it’s legal.
