A 250ml drink containing marijuana extracts has become one of the fastest-selling items at the Queen’s Windsor Farm Shop in Berkshire, a source has claimed. The product is made by a firm called Trip and is infused with 15mg of cannabidiol (CBD).
The ingredient is legal in the UK and is often used for medicinal purposes.
At the store located near the Queen’s Windsor Castle residence, a range of different drink flavours are available – including peach, ginger elderflower and mint.
The product is branded with “peace V-sign” with the words “Trip” and underneath says “CBD infused”.
It retails for £2.19 and customers have reportedly been buying as many as eight items at one time.
“Stock varies throughout the year.”
In the UK, products containing CBD can only be sold if they contain less than 0.2 percent of Tetrahydrocannabinol.
Tetrahydrocannabinol is more commonly known as THC and is one of more than 100 compounds identified in the cannabis plant.
While almost all cannabinoids are controlled substances under the Misuse of Drugs Act, CBD is not.
CBD is widely believed to have some medicinal properties, including relieving inflammation, pain relief and reducing anxiety.
But, many scientific studies have found the evidence to be inconclusive.
