This month in BPI Beverage Insights, Bryony Andrews spoke to Pat Gleeson and Jen Lockwood from St Peter’s Spirits, a socially conscious beverage company aiming to become a market leader in the promising North American market for cannabis infused beverages.
St Peter’s is launching Green Monkey, the UK’s top selling cannabis drink, into the North American market this year, and in this episode Jen and Pat discuss its unique proposition of a THC/CBD beverage that’s based around socialising and fun, as well as health and wellness.
Green Monkey is a tropical citrus flavoured beverage which contains 3 milligrams of THC and 6 mg of CBD.
“You end up with a nice chill, euphoric buzz. In that way it’s a perfect alcohol alternative – we’re not trying to change people’s social habits, we’re just trying to have people drink a healthier-for-you beverage than alcohol,” explains Pat.
Take a look for our discussion of the global market potential of CBD and THC beverages, meeting the challenges of state-by-state US deregulation, and St Peter’s Spirit’s future plans for expansion alongside BPI.
