In addition to a brew made with THC, the ingredient in marijuana that causes a high, Lagunitas’ new ” beer” is also available with CBD , the non-psychoactive cannabis component that’s thought to be responsible for many of its therapeutic effects.

So we visited Oakland’s Harborside dispensary, located on the East Bay peninsula between the neighborhoods of Fruitvale and Downtown Oakland, to check out the new $8 drink.
