You can smoke it, vape it or bake it, and soon enough you’ll be able to crack open a bottle and drink it.

Researchers and students at Loyalist College’s Applied Research Centre for Natural Products and Medical Cannabis in Belleville, Ont., are brewing up a new kind of beer, replacing barley with cannabis.

The college teamed up with Toronto-based company Province Brands of Canada, which makes alcohol-free beer and spirits from marijuana, and for now they’re using hemp in research and product development.

But once cannabis becomes legal, they’ll be able to work with the real thing.

 A budding industry

Loyalist professor Kari Kramp told CBC Radio’s Ontario Morning that researchers, students and engineers still have a lot of work to do to create a drinkable product.

And the pressure is on to do it quickly, she said.
