What is CBD?
CBD is the shortened form of the word “cannabidiol”. Which is one of the several cannabinoids found in the cannabis or hemp plant. It is a naturally occurring derivative of cannabis; hence, it has little or no side effect except in cases of allergies.
CBD is non-psychoactive. It is therefore not responsible for any high sensation, neither does it influence human behavior.
How CBD beer came along?
The introduction of CBD beer to the world was done in the Great American Beer festival in 2015. A brewery in Aurora, Colorado called Dad and Dudes brewery, made the introduction.
Few years later, two brands called Sativa IPA and Indica Double IPA were also introduced into the market. This was done in an effort to render support to the recognition of the legalized cannabis market in Colorado.
Ever since then, more breweries have produced CBD infused beer.
What is it like brewing beers with CBD?
Brewing beer with CBD depends on the laws guiding your states. There are some states that CBD has been legalized and allowed in production. While there are others that CBD in production is illegal.
Still, if you would like to brew with CBD in a state where CBD is not legal, you would have to ask for express permission from concerned authorities. As approval from the law gives you all the right whatsoever to brew your beer with CBD.
Also, remember that before going on with production, all recipes must be submitted to the TTB for review. After approval by the TTB, you can commence production. You might also be required to submit said recipe to the FDA. This is done to ensure that you’re not including above the approved amount of THC in your CBD beer. More about CBD : https://www.cbd.edu/
