back to article Ocado to stock cannabidiol-infused water

For Wednesday's bollocks du jour comes news that Ocado, the UK online grocer, is to fling bottles of cannabis oil-infused spring water at gullible thirsty customers. Drinkers hoping for a relaxing lunch break followed by a somewhat unproductive afternoon will be disappointed on two counts. A 500ml bottle of the liquid - made …

    Is it a joint venture between Ocado and Love Hemp?

    Suppose it's quite cheap when you consider Holland & Barrett are selling CBD oil for £20 a pop.

      Depends how many mg in the bottle shurely?

      If the bottle contains more than 15.5 2mg 'doses' it's better value than Ocado's piss weak version.

      Pint because that'll have more effect

    They could...

    render down 25 litres to get the CBD.

    Also, CBD is not water soluble, eh?

      You can buy CBD oil from the shop, legally.

    Given that the country is apparently in the grip of a serious obesity crisis, is it really ethical or healthy to start selling a "relaxing lunch break" drink that is seriously going to give you the munchies???

    CBD will not make you high

    CBD will not make you high. It not make you hungry. It does have many touted benefits but also 2mg is not really a very useful dose. It is not water soluble - but can be bound with other compounds facilitate solubility.

        Well in the old days rope for sailing ships was made from hemp. So perhaps it really is money for old rope.

    THIS WOULD KILL YOU --> plough through 25 litres of the stuff,

    You would die of hydropoxia or at least soil yourself

    Misplaced scepticism

    > Love Hemp trumpets effects such as improvements to cognitive function and "health and wellness for the mind and body".


    Scoff if you like, but they have obviously been drinking so much of their own product that the improvement in cognitive function allows them to see claims in a WHO report that those who have not drunk the miracle product fail to find.

    They've put too much CBS in the water.....

    It's too strong for Homeopathy. Weaken it by a 100 times. That'll make it work better for Homeopathic uses. hmmm, 250 liters of water to get the same amount as you get now from 25? no, we can do better, make it 2500. After all, less is more right?

    Mines the one with the snakeoil in the pocket. Wanna buy some?
