Soda made from cannabis will soon hit store shelves in Michigan
BAY CITY, Mich. (WEYI) - As Michigan develops regulations for recently legalized recreational marijuana, products made from the cannabis plant are becoming big money makers.
This includes CBD products, like Sprig soda, that some say has the effects of cannabis.
Ideal Party Store in Bay City will soon begin selling Sprig sodas. They look, smell and taste like soda but is made with CBD. CBD is a product derived from hemp or marijuana plants.
"It's supposed to make you feel a little more loose than you’re normally feeling," says Andrew Crete whose father owns Ideal Party Store.
Crete says Michiganders are relaxing their views on products made by cannabis plants now that recreational marijuana is legal in this state.
This is bringing new CBD products to the market.
Birch Run mother Amanda Reinig sells CBD oils, creams and even coffee creamer. She sells products via her website hempchic.com.
She says they treat a variety of health issues.
“Pain, joint stiffness, PTSD,” she says.
Reinig says CBD is not mind altering like smoking weed.
