Coca cola looking to branch into cannabis infused drinks

OK well this was a surprise

I'd like to hear your thoughts on this

Personally I remember hearing of cocain being an original ingredient in the recipe

However now this.......

Coca-Cola 'in talks' over cannabis-infused drinks

Coca-Cola is best known for its eponymous caffeine-based drink, but the firm now appears to be experimenting with a different drug: cannabis.

According to Canada's BNN Bloomberg, the drinks giant is in talks with local producer Aurora Cannabis about developing marijuana-infused beverages.

These would not aim to intoxicate consumers but to relieve pain.

The firm declined to comment but said it was watching the cannabis drinks market closely.

"Along with many others in the beverage industry, we are closely watching the growth of non-psychoactive cannabidiol as an ingredient in functional wellness beverages around the world," Coca-Cola said in a statement.

Cannabis debate: What you need to know
Cannabidiol, a constituent of cannabis, can help ease inflammation, pain and cramping, but has no psychoactive effect.

It comes as Canada prepares to follow certain US states in legalising cannabis for recreational use, after years of permitting it for medicinal purposes.

It has given rise to a large pot growing industry and some high-profile partnerships.

Earlier this year, beer giant Molson Coors Brewing said it would make cannabis-infused drinks with Hydropothecary, while Corona-beer maker Constellation Brands invested $4bn more into pot firm Canopy Growth.

A partnership between Coke and Aurora would mark the first entry of a major manufacturer of non-alcoholic drinks into the market.

'Recovery drink'
Quoting unnamed sources, BNN Bloomberg said Coca-Cola was in "serious talks" with Aurora but no deal had been finalised.

"They're pretty advanced down the path" of doing a deal, one source was quoted as saying.

"It's going to be more of the 'recovery drink' category," the source added.

Aurora, in a separate statement, said it would not discuss business development initiatives until they were finalised, but added: "Aurora has expressed specific interest in the infused beverage space, and we intend to enter that market."

Coca-Cola's shares rose marginally in early trade on Monday

It’s crazy times we live in. Everything is scaling up fast and the money will dictate the rules. I just hope that the people will always be able to grow their own. I gotta say a sugar free electrolyte filled Sativa party drink and beer will be what old people drink.

They just bought Costa coffee for 4 billion..

Shame in a way they took the cocaine out of it and didn't legally undercut the CIA backed "mexican drug gang" paradigm proxy war destabilizing central America.. The CIA just flys all that coke straight in to military bases lol.. same shit goes on in the UK, the government doesn't like competition..

I wish people would stop feeding that beast. Coca cola I mean, but the same thing goes for voting.

Coca colas a fuckin drug gang.. Sugar's one of the most deadly drugs.. Before cane sugar the sweetest thing you would get to eat would be a blueberry pie with no added sugar.. a can of coke is practically a week's worth of sugar in one syringe.. insulin resistance anyone?

But now all the soft drinks in the UK have had to change to artificial sweeteners which have long been proven to be worse than sugar for the body in various ways.. our ancestors would think we were suicidal..

Surprised they didn't get into this earlier considering they have always imported and processed coca leaves into the United States.

So to get away with large scale drug importation, just be on top of the food chain...


Coca-Cola is pretty gross anyways. It is very useful as a rust remover though, works excellently at removing paint as well.

Takes the blood off the roadways after car crashes too. Some cops keep a liter of Coke in the trunk of their cars for just that purpose.
