St. Louis, Missouri-based O’Fallon Brewery and SWADE Cannabis are teaming up on a non-alcoholic, THC-infused beer called Mohi. Each can contains 5 milligrams of THC.
Brian Owens, head brewmaster for O’Fallon Brewery described the process as “truly unique,” starting with the traditional beer recipe and removing the alcohol in a vacuum under strict temperature controls.

Stephanie Cernicek, CSO of BeLeaf, the parent company of SWADE, said the brew has “a refreshing orange citrus and vanilla flavor” and, because it contains nano-emulsified THC, “the onset occurs quickly and stronger than its traditional counterpart, usually within the first 15 minutes, and gives the patient full control of their experience.”
Mohi is available to medical cannabis patients beginning this week at SWADE locations throughout Missouri.
BeLeaf Medical CMO Mitch Meyers said the company thinks “the brand will be a favorite.”
“We have seen the immediate embrace of THC-infused beverages,” Meyers said in a statement, “and the growing buzz around alcohol alternatives in society as a whole, so we knew the demand for new and better adult beverage options was exploding beyond the cannabis world and O’Fallon Brewery was the perfect place to start.”
Beer and cannabis infusions have become more commonplace as legalization programs spread throughout the U.S. In April, Canada’s Canopy Growth signed a distribution deal with alcohol distributor Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits for its line of CBD-infused beverages. In 2019, Hexo, another Canadian cannabis producer, partnered with beer-maker Molson Coors Brewing Company for a CBD beverage joint venture in Colorado.
