Stockton Brewing Company's Buffalo Soldier is Infused with Cannabis Oil

'Buffalo Soldier' is the new Bob Marley-inspired blonde ale-style beer from the Stockton Brewing Company, which sets itself apart as the first of its kind in the UK, as it is made with cannabis oil as an ingredient.

The first batch of Buffalo Soldier hemp ale is reportedly underway and will be available in about six weeks—Stockton Brewing Company anticipates that it will sell out quickly. As well as being alluring to consumers for its unique ingredient inclusion, the ale boasts just 3.8% ABV and possibly even health benefits like pain relief, or stress and anxiety support.

As the new hemp ale includes cannabis oil—also known as cannabidiol or CBD—and not the psychoactive component THC, the ale is not one that will cause a high.
