CBD Ultra Launches High Flyer, the UK’s First Cannabis Infused Craft Beer

Manchester-based CBD Ultra and Cloud 9 Brewing have produced the UK’s first CBD Session IPA beer that is brewed with Cannabis Sativa extract.

Boasting a unique USP, this naturally nutritious 4.3% craft beer is jam-packed with CBD, a health supplement derived from Cannabis that has become hugely popular in the UK, with people using it for a range of reasons from anxiety and depression to muscle and joint pain.

Drinkers of ‘High Flyer’ won’t feel the high associated with Cannabis use as the beer doesn’t contain the psychoactive compound THC, but it does contain five essential cannabinoids and over 40 terpenes which all work together synergistically to produce what is known as the “entourage effect”, a bodily state that magnifies the therapeutic benefits of the Cannabis plant’s individual components.

This unique tipple is the brainchild of UK-based CBD Ultra, a premium CBD company selling a range of high-strength, organic CBD products ranging from edible gummy bears to full spectrum rich hemp oils, to CBD teas. After experiencing unprecedented demand for CBD- based health supplements, the company formed Cloud 9 Brewing and partnered with acclaimed Bermondsey brewers to produce this innovative drink that is set to be a sell-out.

CBD Ultra and Cloud 9 Brewing MD, Carl Boon, said:

“We have been selling CBD products for the last year now and they have been so popular we have struggled to keep up with demand! It was only natural that the next step would be to produce a craft beer that encompassed all the flavours and aromas of a full session-strength IPA, but with the added benefits of CBD. We are very excited to be able to add this unique product to our range and to offer this for distribution to bars and pubs across the country.”

Following the explosion of cannabis-infused drinks in America, the UK is set to be the next biggest market for these tasty CBD tipples and, as such, there is already great interest in High Flyer, which offers the full taste profile of an expertly brewed IPA craft beer but with the added benefits of its full-spectrum CBD extract.

The first batch of High Flyer is now available. To find out more about High Flyer IPA please follow Cloud 9 Brewing Facebook page for release and stockist details.
