A Washington state man is hoping to capitalize on two of the state’s most beloved retail products: coffee and weed.
Adam Stiles of Longview is currently in the application process for a marijuana producer and processors license, according to My Northwest, with hopes to have his THC-infused cold brew called Legal in stores later this year. The state legalized marijuana in 2012.
Stiles’ company, Mirth Provisions, is planning a five drink line, including a black cold brew, a cold brew with milk and sugar, as well as three fruit-based sparkling drinks (Ranier cherry, Lemon Ginger and pomegranate). Each of the drinks would have approximately 10 mg of THC from different lines — shall we call them varietals? — of marijuana per 11.5-ounce bottle.
Here’s how Mirth describes the drinks. First, the black cold brew:
This is the John Wayne of cold brews—strong and bold with a true cowboy’s swagger. It’s mighty refreshing poured over ice or just sipped straight from the bottle. Knock one back with your compadres and take on the day with a smooth buzz and a grin a mile wide.
And the sweetened version:
Drinking this coffee is like riding a cool avalanche of pure deliciousness down a tall mountain and landing in an ocean of good feelings. You’ll swim off into a day of work or play filled to the brim with pure joy.
