Marijuana Soft Drink: Canna Cola Soda For Medical Marijuana Users
Entrepreneur Clay Butler Launchs Marijuana Soft Drink: Canna Cola, Line Of THC Infused Soft Drinks For Medical Marijuana Users
A Californian entrepreneur, Clay Butler, says his company is launching a line of marijuana soft drinks to be sold in medical marijuana outlets in states like Colorado and California, the Santa Cruz Sentinel is reporting.
Marijuana sodas do exist in the marketplace. But, said Butler, none of them have the branding savvy of his product.
"You look at all the marijuana products out there, and they are so mom-and-pop, hippie-dippy and rinky-dink," he said. "If someone can put every color on the rainbow on it, they do. If they can pick the most inappropriate and unreadable fonts, they will. And there's marijuana leaves on everything. It's a horrible cliché in the industry."
Clay Butler, who does not drink nor smoke says Canna Cola and the marijuana sodas will sell between $10 and $15 a bottle.
The beverage line's dosage of THC will be "somewhere between 35 to 65 milligrams," said Scott Riddell, the founder of Diavolo Brands, which is marketing Canna Cola. He said the levels of THC in his line of soft drinks will be substantially below the levels of many drinks now on the market. He likened his product to a "light beer" alongside high-proof liquors.
"It's got a mild marijuana taste," Riddell said. "But the taste factor is really negligible compared to some competitors with three times the THC. When you get to that level, you really have a heavy aftertaste."
The marijuana sodas will come in 5 products lines:
- Cana Cola
- Orange Kush
- Doc Weed (think Dr. Pepper)
- Grape Ape
- Sour Diesel
