Lifeway Foods Says It Plans To Enter Cannabis Market With CBD Drinkables

Lifeway Foods, Inc. (NASDAQ:LWAY) shares traded sharply higher Thursday after the company announced it will enter the cannabidiol space with CBD drinkables — if and when they are legalized at the federal level. 

Cannabidiol is one of some 113 identified cannabinoids in cannabis plants and accounts for up to 40% of the plant's extract.

Lifeway Foods said it plans to enter the $10-billion cannabis market through Plantiful + CBD, a cannabidiol-infused version of Lifeway’s probiotic plant-based beverage.

The stock was up 29.02% at $3.73 at the time of publication Thursday.
