KANSAS CITY, Mo. â€”
One of Kansas City’s largest coffee roasters, The Roasterie, is launching a new canned cold brew infused with CBD.
Officials with The Roasterie announced on social media Monday that the brew is being made in partnership with another Kansas City-area company – CBD American Shaman.
The Roasterie officials said the new, canned cold brew is available at all American Shaman stores and The Roasterie Factory Cafe on Southwest Boulevard.
The Roasterie CBD Infused Cold Brew sells for $5 a can. It’s slow-steeped with CBD for 19 hours.
CBD products continue to gain popularity as attitudes toward hemp and marijuana evolve.
CBD, or cannabidiol, is a compound found in hemp that’s believed to relieve or at least ease symptoms of many health problems. Many people believe it can help with anxiety and other health concerns. Since its launch, its popularity has continued to grow.
State legislators in Kansas recently voted to legalize CBD products as long as they contain no trace of THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, the compound in marijuana that gets people high.
