It’s 4/20, are you thirsty?

It’s 4/20 and we’re living in a world, where this date, and the concept it represents is still a highly (lol!) debated issue around the globe. To not fall in any of these moral foxholes, we decided to take a look at those highly (lol, again!) uncommon beers that recreate the well known flavour of… well, you know.
The science behind all this varies, and now three main methods are used to create a beer with similar taste to cannabis.

  1. Although all options lie in the fact that both hops and cannabis are members of the Cannabaceae taxonomy family, the first option simply uses the appropriate amounts and types of hops to recreate similar characteristics to ganja. The easiest result is some kind of IPA, but at Ale Industries brewery, brewers managed to create a cannabis-like cherry “tea beer” using chamomille and other spices.
  2. As keef remains after touching or moving cannabis, hop hash is the powder-like material that remains from grinding hops into pellets. Using up this hop replacement makes extremely strong beer, quite resembling to marijuana.
  3. All right, actually this category does involve weed. Hemp, more accurately, which creates this unofficial sub-genre: the hempenbeers. From the 1990s it’s been a secret ingredient for marijuana-like beers (rare too, due to its criminalization) but as law changes, so became this subtype more and more known.
