Feb 1,2011: Once upon a time Coca Cola had Coke in it. That was then, this is now……
Soon to be released 12-ounce bottle of "Canna Cola" will contain 35 to 65 milligrams of THC, the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana. Consider this: the average dose of medical marijuana is about 25 milligrams.
The soda is expected to hit the shelves in Colorado and is said to cost $10-$15 per bottle. The product will be licensed to local companies in states that allow medical dispensaries. There are plans to sell THC free version of the sodas.
The Canna Cola family of beverages (which include the Dr Pepper-like Doc Weed, the lemon-lime Sour Diesel, the grape-flavored Grape Ape and the orange-flavored Orange Kush) is the brainchild of Clay Butler, a commercial artist in Soquel, Calif. Although Butler says he's never smoked pot in his life, he told the Santa Cruz Sentinel that he loves branding and was intoxicated by the concept of "how Snapple or Coca-Cola or Minute Maid would make a marijuana beverage, if they ever chose to do it."
