California-based entrepreneur Soquel, Calif., has created a new line of soda pot or marijuana soda and plans to roll out in February in Colorado.
The beverage combines soda and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), a psychoactive ingredient found in marijuana, to create a drink that co-brand-developer Clay Butler calls medibles, edible medicine.
A lot of people simply don't want to smoke, says co-brand developer Clay Butler. It's very easy to take your medication in the form of a cookie, soda or brownie and you can do that without drawing attention to yourself.
According to TIME magazine, the brains behind the pot-infused soda, Clay Butler is a firm believer that adults have an inalienable right to think, eat, smoke, drink, ingest, decorate, dress any way they choose, even though he himself claims never to have used marijuana or smoked a cigarette. (Or at least, he never inhaled?)
Canna Cola, comes in 12 ounce bottles (that's 12 mind-blowing ounces, as the packaging phrases it), and comes in Grape Ape, Orange Kush, DocWeed (Dr. Pepper), Sour Diesel (7UP/Sprite), and the eponymous cola-flavor. The bottles run a pricey $10 to $15 a pop.
Besides his flagship cola drink, Canna Cola, he will also produce Dr. Pepper-like Doc Weed, lemon-lime Sour Diesel, grape-flavored Grape Ape and orange-flavored Orange Kush.
Canna Cola's makers plan to sell it to medical-marijuana dispensaries in Colorado starting next month, and hope to launch it in California by the spring.
