Say Goodbye to CBD Cocktails

As regular readers of CalMarijuanaPolicy know, state regulations don’t permit the mixing of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and alcohol. But, until recently, it was still permissible to sell cocktails containing cannabis’ non-psychoactive component Cannabidiol or CBD.

No longer.

With the governor’s signing of AB 2914, bars and liquor stores may not serve any cannabis products at facilities where beer or liquor is sold. Likewise, AB 2914 prohibits the mixing of alcohol and cannabis products, including CBD.

The new legislation puts the kibosh on a number of popular CBD-infused cocktails at posh bars around the state. Many of those boozy creations had already begun waning after the state's Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control deemed them unlawful in July.
