I was wondering how long it would take for someone to give it a go!  I’m curious to hear the results.

How did you extract the thc? It sounds like you may have just added unprocessed plant material which would do nothing other than waste it and make the beer taste awful. I think carbonizing and extracting with alcohol would be the method to use but even then I imagine that it would only be good in a modest dose in a strong flavored beer.

I did it years ago.  My conclusion was drink a beer, smoke a joint.   YMMV.

I believe the few breweries around the US that are trying this are using terpenes to infuse... but I agree. drink the beer, smoke the bong.

yup, cannabis in a water tea does nothing. very high strength alcohol is the most reliable way to extract THC and other relevant substances in regtards to beer. (you could use oil perhaps? outside of my experience)

this would also help you in measuring dosage, especially if you bought it. in canada, you can buy weed AFAIK (i don't use it) with labeled variety, THC content, etc.

Personally, I always hated ingesting weed in ways other than smoking, as it is slow to act and then hits you like a ton of bricks and not in a good way.

Tried some at a beer festival and almost spit it back up. Haven’t tried it since so I don’t know whether it was a bad batch or that’s what it actually tastes like.

After hearing so many experiences that are mediocre (at best) with the real stuff, it astounds me that this stuff exists:

No, that was my point. If the real stuff doesn't give good results,  why bother with THC free stuff?

It’s low in thc but high in CBD. For many it is effective for anxiety, pain, etc.

Right, but I just can't see it's effectiveness as a homebrew flavorant, which is what this is being marketed as.
