A father and son duo out of Colorado has been given the green light to sell their cannabinoid-infused beer nationally—perhaps as soon as next year.
Thomas Hembree and his son, Mason, plan to start canning their General Washington’s Secret Stash IPA, which contains no THC, in November. They’ve already been brewing a line of canna-beers at their brewery Dad’s and Dude’s Breweria in Aurora.
As Mason tells Men’s Health:
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.
We had to find the perfect time in the brewing process to add the CBD to the beer. If you add it too early it denatures when we refine the beer because the compound attaches to the brewing yeast.
Here’s Mason, and his adorable anti-alcohol, anti-weed mom, talking to 9NEWS:
