Vegan Cannabis Milk Launches in UK

New plant-based milk option with tranquility promoting properties is available for a limited time in London.

London-based vegan café and food company Rawligion launched cannabis-based milk beverage Relax earlier this month. The limited edition elixir is made with only hemp seeds, cashews, dates, coconut oil, vanilla, water, and cannabidiol—which the founders tout promotes calmness and tranquility. Rawligion development consultant Michael Isted says while the formula doesn’t produce the same effects as smoking cannabis, “it’s used for a multitude of different health issues, including anxiety, cancer (particularly the side effects of conventional treatment), pain relief, depression, and sleep disorders.” Relax is available through Rawligion, both in-store and online, to residents of central London only. The new cannabis-based vegan milk is yet another addition to the growing number of plants that can be used to create animal-free dairy alternatives.
