The ticket offices of the German federal capital public transport sells special Cannabis-flavored edible tickets as part of its marketing campaign launched this week. the public transport company has announced “the sale of a limited edition of edible tickets, flavored with a few drops… of hemp oil.”
By means of this campaign, The Berliner Verkehrsbetriebe (BVG) invites its users to “fight the stress of Christmas” , and assures that the operation is not a stance in the debate raging in Germany on the free sale of cannabis (a controversial measure announced by the new majority in power).
Through a video realized by the company in charge of Berlin’s buses, subways and streetcars , they explain that:
“In a vibrant metropolis like Berlin, it can sometimes be very, very stressful. Especially at Christmas.Fortunately, we’ve found a good way to combat this, some really good stuff…” .
The company sold these cellophane-wrapped day tickets for €8.80 (1.80€ more expensive than the usual €7) and are valid for 24 hours. The tickets are edible, since they are entirely made of edible paper, and thus covered with a thin layer of hemp oil. The promoters of the initiative ensure that the used hemp oil is totally a legal substance, “without health risk”, and which does not contain psychoactive products such as THC or CBD.
