Canadian company developing cannabis beer


This year’s Canadian Brewing Awards are being held in Halifax, and brewers from across the country are showing off their finest beers. But much of the discussion at this year’s conference surrounds a beer that doesn’t actually exist yet. Any beer expert will tell you that hops are key to beer, and one of the main flavour components to the beverage. But you may not know that hops are a cousin of the marijuana plant, meaning the soon-to-be legalized drug could be making its way into beers. “There are some aromas or flavours that come from hemp or cannabis that do pair nicely into beer, and that is something that people have been working on,” explains Emily Tipton, President of the Craft Brewers Association of Nova Scotia. “So without any of the effects of cannabis, just the flavours and aromas of it,” “Cannabis is by far a safer and healthier alternative to alcohol, and this is the first time in any of our lifetimes that we’re able to bring a product like that to market,” says Dooma Wendschuch, co-founder and CEO of Province Brands of Canada.
