Get ready to experience soda in a completely different way. Canna Cola is a new caffeinated beverage that contains THC, the main psychoactive ingredient in marijuana. Clay Butler, partner in the company that is manufacturing Canna Cola, has never tried pot before but sees the marketplace ripe for his marijuana-tasting, THC-infused beverage line. There are other sodas on the market containing THC, but Butler takes a different approach with his brand,
“You look at all the marijuana products out there, and they are so mom-and-pop, hippie-dippy and rinky-dink. If someone can put every color on the rainbow on it, they do. If they can pick the most inappropriate and unreadable fonts, they will. And there’s marijuana leaves on everything. It’s a horrible cliché in the industry.”
Butler adds that his drinks would be “how Snapple or Coca-Cola or Minute Maid would make a marijuana beverage, if they ever chose to do it.” Canna Cola flavors include: the original Canna Cola, Doc Weed (similar to Dr. Pepper), Sour Diesel (lemon-lime flavored), Grape Ape (grape-flavored), and Orange Kush (orange-flavored). The sodas will range between $10-$15 for a 12-ounce bottle and will first be for sale in Colorado starting this month and medical marijuana dispensaries in California beginning in the spring.
