Coca-Cola Co. reported this week that it is keeping an eye on the legal cannabis industry and is considering its options for producing cbd infused drinks with cannabidiol, or CBD, a non-intoxicating chemical found in cannabis and hemp that is believed to have numerous health and therapeutic properties.
According to Bloomberg News, the world’s largest soft drink company is in talks with cannabis producer Aurora Cannabis to develop the products, which could add to Coca-Cola’s growing list of alternatives to its sugary namesake beverage.
Coca-Cola is only one of many beverage-makers to explore entering the cannabis space in recent months taking sides with another beverage giant, Corona.
Cannabis experts have pointed out that CBD is, in fact, a non-psychoactive cannabinoid chemical, given its ability to help many users find relief from anxiety or depression (or otherwise to relax).
