One of the country’s biggest beverage companies is jumping into the cannabis space. This week, Molson Coors Beverage Company launched a new line of sparkling water infused with hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD), called Verywell. The products, available exclusively in Colorado, are made and marketed under its subsidiary, Truss CBD USA, and mark the beer giant’s first foray into the United States cannabis sector. Verywell sparkling water comes in three flavors — grapefruit-tarragon, strawberry-hibiscus and blueberry-lavender — and each 12-ounce can has 20 milligrams of CBD. As with all CBD products, it doesn’t come cheap: An eight-pack of 12-oz. cans sells online for $35, and a 12-can variety pack is $50.
