Sources leak potential Coca-Cola - Aurora Cannabis deal; Coke denies

Coca-Cola выпустит напиток с марихуаной

Coca-Cola is reportedly in "serious talks" with Aurora Cannabis to develop marijuana-infused drinks.

"We are closely watching the growth of non-psychoactive CBD as an ingredient in functional wellness beverages around the world", Landers said.

It says it hasn't made any decisions about using it in coke products.

It did not confirm or deny the link with Aurora Cannabis, which was first reported by Canadian broadcaster BNN Bloomberg. Constellation Brands, the maker of Corona beer, Svedka vodka and Casa Noble tequila, announced in August that it's investing an additional $4 billion in the Canadian cannabis company Canopy Growth.

Coca-Cola Co (KO.N) is closely watching the fast-growing marijuana drinks market for a possible entry that would expand the world's largest soft drink maker's ambitions further away from sugary sodas.

The company is interested in cannabidiol oil in particular, one of two primary marijuana molecules.

Trump authorizes sanctions against foreigners who meddle in United States elections
The senators prefer their legislation, the Defending Elections from Threats by Establishing Redlines, or DETER Act . The U.S. attorney general and the Department of Homeland Security will then have 45 days to review those findings.

Coca-Cola is considering developing a range of marijuana-infused beverages to help ease physical problems such as inflammation, pain and cramps.

Coca-Cola may be looking into a new ingredient.

The talks come as Canada prepares to legalise cannabis for recreational use, after many years of permitting it for medicinal purposes.

Auroa has a "specific interest in the infused beverage space" and intends to enter that market, the Canadian company told CBS MoneyWatch in an email.

Aurora was up more than 15% in early trading Monday following the report. Just last week, Coke announced a deal to buy Costa Coffee for $5 billion. For example, Heineken's craft beer Lagunitas recently launched Hi-Fi Hops, a beer-flavoured sparkling water with THC and CBD.

"We have no interest in marijuana or cannabis", Coca-Cola said in a statement. The Edmonton, Alberta-based company has soared along with other pot stocks in Canada as the country gears up to become the first Group of Seven nation to legalize cannabis on October 17.
