Non-Alcoholic, THC-Infused Beer Now at All SWADE Dispensaries
If a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down, imagine what a can of beer will do. Well imagine no longer, as you can now treat your qualifying condition with MOHI.
According to Forbes, MOHI, a non-alcoholic beer with an authentic craft beer taste, has five milligrams of THC per twelve ounce can. And it’s now available at all SWADE locations for $8 a can or $30 for a four-pack.
Novel Marijuana Beer a Product of Two Missouri Businesses
MOHI is a joint venture between two Missouri-based businesses, SWADE’s parent company, BeLeaf Medical, and O’Fallon Brewery. BeLeaf provided the marijuana expertise, of course, with O’Fallon covering the brewing end of things.
Forbes says the result “is a wheat ale with notes of orange, citrus and vanilla” with a THC infusion that takes effect in a fraction of the time that edibles do. MOHI is also only 80 calories per can.
MOHI is Unique in the THC-Beverage Market
“Although cannabis infused beverages are just hitting the marketplace, very few are taking the extra steps to infuse NA beer,” Fallon Brewery President Jim Gorczyca told Forbes. “The process is costly, takes numerous steps and uses expensive state-of-the-art equipment creating high demand and lack of options to produce a truly unique NA cannabis-infused beer that truly tastes good.”
Process Not as Simple as Just Adding Marijuana to Near-Beer
The process of making MOHI is a complicated one. First, on the brewing end, the effect on the taste of the beer caused by adding THC had to be considered.
“We had to adjust the bitterness and perceived sweetness of the dealcoholized beer to account for the bitterness addition that comes from the cannabis,” Brian Owens, head brewmaster for O’Fallon, told Forbes.
The two companies collaborated on the recipe, just as they do on the creation of the product.
“The beer is brewed and fully fermented before going through the de-alcoholizing process which removes the alcohol,” Gorczyca told Forbes. “The non-alcohol base beer is (then) transferred to BeLeaf for cannabis infusion.”
BeLeaf then uses the same CO2, ethanol, and hydrocarbon extraction processes it uses to create its other non-flower products to produce the THC-infusion for MOHI.
