Ok, it's not exactly "marijuana" beer it's cannabidiol or CBD to be precise but you get the idea.  In fact, a lot of people and companies are getting the idea.  What has been known for many years (some say centuries) is that there are valuable health related properties in cannabis and hemp that could, ironically, turn out to be revolutionary.  Studies show that CBD can ease pain without any psychedelic effects and is already being used in many applications to serve that purpose.

According to woodtv.com, Founders Brewing Company in Grand Rapids has started a pilot program using CBD in beer.  The oil form of CBD that will be used in the pilot testing has to contain .3 percent THC and will be added toward the end of the brewing process.  Here's the challenge, the CBD oil itself has an unpleasant flavor so Founders will have to find a way to make the beer taste good.  Get more of the story by clicking HERE.
