It is reported that this is not the first time Coca-Cola has cooperated with the development of cannabis beverage business companies. As early as last year, Coca-Cola established a partnership with a cannabis beverage (CBD Beverage) company. Some analysts said that given the legalization of cannabis business in the United States, Coca-Cola may be involved in the cannabis (CBD) beverage sector in the future.

But before the Coca-Cola will get involved in rumors of cannabis products, Coca-Cola chairman Zhan Yujie gave a negative answer to CNBC. “Coca-Cola will delay the addition of CBD (a cannabis compound) to its products until marijuana is legal, safe and consumable. As a large consumer goods company, consumers expect us to stand on the 'safe' side.”

But in fact, things may not be as you think... too long to read version 1. The active ingredient in "Cannabis Beverage" is cannabinol (CBD), which has no mental effect and is not addictive. 2. Cannabisdiol has certain medicinal value, but there is no "solid hammer" for health care. 3. “Cannabis drink” is not legalized in most countries and there is still a long way to go. 4. If you drink too much, you can have some side effects. The beginning of the text First of all, saying that Coca-Cola wants to join the "marijuana ingredient" in the product is actually a rather rigorous statement, because there are many kinds of marijuana ingredients!


As everyone knows, medicinal (or recreational) marijuana can have hallucinogenic effects and can be addictive. Most countries and regions in the world treat medicinal cannabis as a drug and strictly control it. The reason why medicinal cannabis can create hallucinations is because Tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, is a psychoactive ingredient in medicinal cannabis. Industrial marijuana and edible marijuana correspond to medicinal cannabis, industrial marijuana is used to make hemp rope and hemp fabric, and edible marijuana is used to produce hemp and hemp oil. The two cannabis have a low THC content and can be legally grown in all countries. Chinese law stipulates that if the THC content of cannabis is less than 0.3%, it can be legally grown.



Yes, the hemp rope we use and the hemp kernel we eat are all obtained from marijuana. THC is strictly controlled as a psychotropic drug in most countries. In the United States, although the laws of each state are different, at the federal legal level, THC is a proper class 1 drug, alongside heroin, morphine, cocaine, and so on. Even if you borrow 10 courage from Coca-Cola, you can't rush to add THC to your product. Then, what is added to the "marijuana drink"? It is added to another active substance contained in cannabis - Cannabidiol, or CBD. Although it seems that the chemical structure of CBD is quite similar to THC, CBD is not mentally active, and this product will neither make you hallucinate or addictive.

Comparing the structure of CBD and THC, everyone is looking for a cockroach, but CBD is an active ingredient in marijuana and has certain medicinal value. The clinically proven treatment effects are as follows:

It can relieve the pain of patients with multiple sclerosis.
Can be used in the treatment of certain types of epilepsy.

Yes, only these. Of course, there is still a lot of literature showing that CBD has anti-fatigue, anti-oxidation, anti-inflammatory and other effects. These "efficiencies" are only in the preliminary study and have not been compared to the "heavyweight" conclusion. In some countries, manufacturers have begun to put the CBD in beverages to promote its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties as a selling point, as a "health drink" or "healthy food" to sell.

Coca-Cola's partnership with Canadian licensed cannabis producer Aurora Cannabis Inc is to gain a certain market share in order to enter the market in this segment. However, if you want to go public, you must first get the most important thing - is this drink legal now? Because the laws and regulations of different countries are different. So far, the legality of cannabidiol (CBD) can be divided into four cases:

Completely banned: such as some states in the United States
Can be used as a prescription drug: Australia, New Zealand, etc.
It can be purchased and used as an over-the-counter drug: UK, Sweden, Switzerland, etc.
The standard is not yet clear: such as other states in the United States, China, etc.

Have you discovered that no matter which country, there is no clear regulation that "cannabinol can be legally added to food to make energy drinks/health foods." In other words, cannabinol can be used as a medicinal product in many countries, but it is not a legal food ingredient or food additive in the world.

But in 2018, there was indeed a drink with the addition of cannabidiol in the US market. Are these all illegal? It turns out that those manufacturers will claim that their CBD is extracted from industrial cannabis, and industrial cannabis is of course legally grown, so there is no problem at the legal level. But think about it, the situation in the United States is more complicated. Each state has different attitudes toward marijuana, and the attitude toward the CBD is also very different. Some states have fully legalized marijuana, and other states have only "not intervened in this field for the time being", and cannot say that this thing is "completely legal."

The CBD-based health drink launched by the North American market, which Coca-Cola and other related companies need to do, is to provide as much evidence of the safety of cannabisdiol as possible to promote its legalization in various countries so that it can be safe. Listing. However, everyone may be more concerned about the following question: Can marijuana drinks have side effects? Due to the presence of cannabidiol (CBD), this "marijuana drink" should be classified as "health food". Many health foods are strictly used. If the intake is excessive, some side effects will occur. The side effects currently found for cannabidiol are fatigue, loss of appetite, diarrhea, and changes in sleep. Although not particularly serious, it should also be noted.


In the future, if such a "marijuana drink" is actually listed in China, the regulations will definitely use the dose. Have a little time when you drink, don't drink too much.

to sum up

The active ingredient in "Cannabis Beverage" is cannabinol (CBD), which has no mental effects and is not addictive.
Cannabisdiol has certain medicinal value, but there is no "solid hammer" for health care.
"Cannabis drinks" are not legalized in most countries and there is still a long way to go.
"Cannabis drink" can have certain side effects if it is drunk too much.

Speaking of the carbonated beverage market, the two giants are absolutely inseparable. A pair of rivals who have been entangled for hundreds of years, firmly hold the top two positions of global carbonated drinks, although they have been fighting each other for more than a hundred years, but I have never given any chance to the third place! Yes, the two companies are Coca Cola and Pepsi! However, as people's health concepts change, more and more people are starting to stay away from carbonated drinks, and the shrinking of the global carbonic acid market is inevitable!


PK
According to Coca-Cola's earnings report in 2017, Coca-Cola achieved net income of US$35.41 billion in 2017, down 15% year-on-year! The old rival PepsiCo’s financial report was also bleak. Pepsi’s net profit in 2017 was 4.857 billion US dollars, down 23.26% year-on-year. The shrinking of the carbonated beverage market has become irreversible, and change is the only way to survive!

In order to survive, the two companies have carried out a lot of diversified attempts, such as the introduction of juice, drinking water, etc.!

However, with a recent news, people can't help but cast more doubts on Coca-Cola's diversified path!

In the past year, the legal use of marijuana has been continually loosened around the world. On September 18, local time, the South African Supreme Court passed the private marijuana legalization bill, becoming the third country in Africa to pass a similar bill. After the enactment of the bill, in South Africa, it is not a criminal offence for adults to hold marijuana for private use by individuals, but it is still illegal to use marijuana or conduct transactions in public. In North America, more and more states in the United States have begun to legalize marijuana, and next month, Canada will also legalize recreational marijuana use. The legalization of marijuana has already set off a wave. A very straightforward example is that the stock price of cannabis producer Tilray, which is listed in the US, has risen 13 times in two months! It can be seen how enthusiastic the prospect of legalization of marijuana is!


Tilray crazy stock price
Perhaps I don't want to miss the wave of legalization of the North American cannabis market. Maybe I am not willing to give up the carbonated beverage market that I have been working on for many years. Recently, it is reported that the Coca-Cola Company is negotiating with the Canadian cannabis company Aurora Cannabis to discuss it. Inject marijuana into the filling drink! At present, all of this is still in the negotiation stage. In response to the above news, Coca-Cola’s spokesperson responded: “We are not interested in marijuana, but like many other companies in the beverage industry, we are paying close attention to the non-psychoactive active ingredient CBD (Cannabisphenol). ) As a possible growth in functional health drinks worldwide. This aspect is now growing rapidly, but the company has not yet made any decisions."


However, there is no doubt that marijuana drinks have great appeal to Coca-Cola. If an agreement is reached, Coca-Cola will become the world's first beverage company to enter the cannabis beverage, which will definitely bring huge demonstrations to other peer companies. The effect, is the era of cannabis drinks really coming?
