Cannabidiol infused foods and drinks have been on the rise, as the oil’s popularity skyrockets. Carl’s Jr. is the next business to look into adding CBD oil to food items in order to expand their market to include the products.
Maybe CBD oil is the wave of the future! Professional chefs have already declared CBD and cannabis infusion to be the trend of 2019, and Carl’s Jr. want a piece of the market. The fast-food joint will test a CBD-infused burger at one of its Denver locations on April 20, making it the first national fast-food chain to add CBD to its menu. Carl’s Jr. is following in the footsteps of other restaurants and eateries too.
Along with the jump in desire for CBD and cannabis-infused products comes an interest in hemp seed oil as well. All natural oils such as these contain many holist health benefits and it really isn’t surprising that Carl’s Jr. wants to jump in feet first with a test this weekend.
The problem for some is that the Food and Drug Administration prohibits companies from adding CBD oil to food or beverages, according to CNBC. But that isn’t stopping anyone. Laws only exist if people are willing to follow them.
The burger chain’s Rocky Mountain High: CheeseBurger Delight features two beef patties, pickled jalapenos, pepper jack cheese, waffle fries — and about 5 milligrams of hemp-derived CBD extract in the burger chain’s Santa Fe Sauce. This limited time burger offer will sell for $4.20 (get it? A nod to 4/20 – also the date Carl’s Jr. will test the burger). For those worried about getting “high,” don’t be. CBD oil does not contain any psychoactive properties.
Cannabidiol is extracted from the flowers and buds of marijuana or hemp plants. It does not produce intoxication; marijuana’s “high” is caused by the chemical tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). –WebMDCannabidiol is extracted from the flowers and buds of marijuana or hemp plants.

This new craze is sweeping our nation and taking the health industry by storm. As big pharma continues to fail people with their side-effects laced drugs, look for more holistic health products made from hemp to pop up. But in the meantime, make sure to take the time to understand that CBD oil is not dangerous.
Cannabidiol – or “CBD” – is one of over 100 compounds found in cannabis sativa plants (including hemp) that belong to a class of naturally occurring, biologically active chemical constituents called cannabinoids.
CBD can make you feel more relaxed due to its anti-anxiety properties, but it is not intoxicating. –Ready Nutrition
Carl’s Jr. decision to debut the burger in the “Mile High City” is no mere coincidence. Denver is known as the Mile High City because it’s exactly one mile above sea level, but you can see the connection cannabis enthusiasts have made here. Colorado was also one of the first U.S. states to legalize recreational marijuana. As a result, cannabis is one of the state’s fastest growing industries. Last year, the state’s medical and retail dispensaries sold $1.55 billion of marijuana, according to Colorado’s marijuana sales report.
