Is coca-cola developing a cannabis-infused beverage?Is Coca-Cola developing a cannabis-infused beverage?


The viability of commercially available cannabis-infused wellness drinks is being investigated by the soda giant Coca-Cola. The therapeutic value of CBD is of particular interest in the cannabis-infused foodstuffs marketplace.


With a continuing decline in soda sales and upswing of consumer interest in teas and other beverages, Coca-Cola might be jumping on the cannabis bandwagon.

Since 2011, cannabis sales have risen from $1 billion/year to $9 billion/year, and many European countries are following Dutch and Portuguese models.
