Weed is one of the fastest developing industries in the world thanks to its legalisation in various parts of North America and we’ve now arrived at the next natural step for the drug – its first craft beer hybrid.

Cannabis beer is the brainchild of Province Brands CEO Dooma Wendschuh who claims that it’s an alternative to alcohol and will have a similar effect on you apparently. Wendschuh had the following to say about it all:
The beer tastes dry and savoury and less sweet than a typical beer.
The beer hits you very quickly, which is not common for a marijuana edible.
Our beer is brewed from the stalks, stem and roots of the cannabis plant unlike other ‘cannabis infused’ beers that are currently available on the market.
We take them off the grower’s hands, saving them the cost of hiring a licensed disposal company to dispose of them.
The idea came from thinking, can we create something that can serve the role that alcohol serves in our society, and can we do that using this monumental sea change that is happening in our world right now?
I don’t think there was anywhere else in the world where we could do this business. Canada is already leading the world in creating an industry around medical cannabis and we expect them to continue to lead the world in trading and industry around adult-use cannabis.
Marijuana is not good for you and our beers are not good for you. You should not drink them five times a day, you should not drink them first thing when you wake up in the morning. We’re not saying that.
If I could create an alternative to alcohol, that’s something that would change the world. That’s something I’m very passionate about.
OK Dooma, thanks for giving the whole history of your idea and everything, but I kinda just wanted to know what drinking your cannabis beer would do to me. Would it make me super stoned or drunk or a combination of both? It doesn’t really get explained here.
I guess there’s only one thing to do and that’s to head to Canada to try it out. I’ll let you know how I fare – provided I don’t get too baked off it that is.
