Anheuser Busch-Heir Launches Cannabis Brand

The great-great-grandson of the founder of Anheuser Busch, Adolphus A. Busch launched ABV Cannabis earlier this month.

The 27-year-old created the company to provide "clean, consistent, quality and affordable cannabis products that appeal to consumers from every walk of life," according to a recent press release.

Some of the products in ABV Cannabis' portfolio include various vaporizer pens, with environment-friendly cannabis oil. The pens are available in about two dozen stores in Colorado.

Busch sees a lot of potential in the cannabis industry due to the health benefits the hemp plant provides.

"Growing up I always knew I wanted to work in the family business, creating quality and affordable products that appealed to a variety of consumers," said Adolphus Busch V, founder of ABV Cannabis Co in a press release. "However, once I saw all the incredible benefits that cannabis could bring to people and the immense opportunity presented by the cannabis industry, I knew I could take all I learned from my pioneering family heritage and create a new legacy for myself in the cannabis space."

Prior to starting the cannabis brand, Busch worked at Keef Cola that has a line of cannabis-infused soda.
