Founders Brewing Co. Testing CBD Beer
Grand Rapids' Founders'Brewing Co. has launched a cannabidiol (CBD) beer pilot program this week.
Wood TV 8 reports that Founders has an in-house lab for testing. The CBD oil will likely be added toward the end of the brewing process.
It sounds like the challenge will be getting the beer to taste good, as CBD oil itself doesn't taste great.
If Founders creates a CBD beer they want to sell, then the FDA will have to approve it.
CBD, which is legal and found in cannabis and hemp, has been used to treat treat pain, anxiety, depression, and other medical issues, without psychedelic effects.
Under a Michigan law passed in January, CBD oil is regulated as hemp and does not fall under Michigan Medical Marijuana regulations.
