Florida restaurants and eateries have begun adding CBD (cannabidiol) oil to some of the items on their menus. Widely regarded as a wonderful supplement to help deal with pain, anxiety, and other ailments, CBD oil gives the user the benefits of cannabis without the mind-altering high.
Customers are raving about the new slices at Pizza City in Fort Lauderdale, especially the marinara sauce, which is infused with cannabidiol, aka CBD oil, the trendy but controversial compound commonly found in cannabis plants, according to ABC Local 10 News. Although controversial, CBD oil shouldn’t be. Some CBD-laced foods contain trace amounts of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), the psychoactive substance in marijuana that produces a euphoric high. THC is illegal in Florida for those without a medical marijuana card. But according to WebMD:
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). –WebMD
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration also says that using CBD oil as a food additive is illegal nationwide, says Seth Hyman, a medical marijuana expert with the Plantation law firm Kelley Kronenberg.
However, trace amounts aren’t enough to get a person high and marijuana laws are rapidly changing across the country to improve freedom and choice over what Americans are allowed by the government to put in their bodies. Regardless, CBD oil has gained a foothold in Florida, where it’s widely available at markets and vape shops in glass bottles and bath bombs, dog treats and gummies.
“Selling unapproved products with unsubstantiated therapeutic claims is not only a violation of the law but also can put patients at risk, as these products have not been proven to be safe or effective,” FDA commissioner Scott Gottlieb wrote in the statement. “Cannabis and cannabis-derived products … are considered new drugs or new animal drugs and must go through the FDA drug approval process for human or animal use before they are marketed in the U.S.”
That hasn’t stopped Dave Nardi, the owner of Pizza City, from infusing his New York-style pizzas with CBD oil. Pot-leaf cartoons and the phrase “CBD infusion” decorate the windows of his Las Olas Boulevard pizzeria.
It isn’t just Florida either! CBD-infused food and drinks have been popping all over the country in response to the demand for the oil. You can find CBD-laced food or lattes in many places in New York City as well.
CBD oil is definitely the newest health craze, and whether it’s a fad or an actual medical miracle should be left up to those who make the decision to consume it, not the meddling busybodies in government who think they can dictate everyone’s lives.
This ass backwards tourist trap cares nothing about actual people, only the money matters. After paying $8 plus tax for a 16 ounce CBD spiked lemonade you’ll tell everyone you feel better. And don’t be smoking no weed. A sucker born every minute.
Wonder if this will help solve the obesity problem?
Was it caused by cortisol?
If you are going to use CBD, buy it yourself and use it.
F the mark up on the trendy drinks n food.
People is stoopit.
Dog treats lmao
Are they limpy. A side effect of veterinary steroids is gastric bleeding.
Does it cure Ebola or make Ebola easier to die from ?
Anti-inflammatory, sleep-aid, with a drying effect on the mucous membranes…
also has done wonders for my irritable bowel syndrome 🙂
CBD is a fine medication. It cured my PTSD very quickly.

I prefer to be a golden-rule and voluntaryist kind-of person, yet, without tracing a concentrate to it’s source, you don’t know whether someone is feeding you one of those dangerous, chemical analogues, that puts people into comas or makes them jump out of airplanes.
If sativa is stimulating, why can’t someone become paranoid, from an overdose. If indica is sedating, why can’t rank abuse lead to a depressive episode, logically speaking.
Have you ever done meditative kind-of exercises, on this plant? Say, centering, self-hypnosis, visualization, or dream induction. I believe it’s an hallucinogen, in ample doses, and would trigger schizoids, incapable of differentiating between the natural, mental states, which we all have.
I liked the idea that it might pacify someone hell-bent, on self-destruction, but, as a dis-inhibitor, I have never personally seen it improve the behavior of a pathological narcissist (to use polite language).
I am not afraid of a tested substance, with knowable properties, so much as the 99% who cannot be trusted with themselves.
Make mine a real coca cola.
So instead of food poising now I have to worry about getting a drug overdose from my chicken fired steak?
Also, you don’t know what is the actual drug, except as a matter of blind faith.
It is incredibly irresponsible to just dose folks with any herbs as no one knows various side effects or even causing allergic effects.
Would it even be safe to routinely drink pine needle tea or infuse food items with it? NOPE. Doing so would inevitably cause miscarriages! Dolts think, “well it might be helpful!”
Nope, you do NOT routinely give any herb unless there is a rationale for doing so. More is NOT BETTER. How do you know what is a safe therapeutic dose??? What kind of nonsensical idea is it that anyone can just drink as much herbs as they want in a beverage???
Would you ever want aspirin to routinely be a component if coffee??? Heck no! It would end up causing bleeding.
The reason the old Excedrin headache formula was so effective is it was dosed with caffeine and that is a “potentiator” with various other drugs ie it enhances or boosts the effect. Therefore some people got quicker relief with Execedrin.
If you put CBD oil in coffee, it might exagerate the effect and be dangerous or toxic. We just don’t know.
Say you knew that hibiscus might help some cardiac patients take less medicine and was a cheaper alternative. If you routinely put hibiscus in coffee, it might cause heart palpitations in those who are already taking heart medication. How much would be safe as once people consumed a teacup of coffee and now people drink whole pots of coffee? If people consumed pots of coffee with hibiscus always in it, that would be insane.
Similarly, other drugs negatively interact with other drugs ie have an antagonistic effect which reduces their efficacy. Therefore certain drinks laced with CBD oil may render whatever positive effects to be nullified. See grapefruit juice which can do either based on cytochrome p450 in the liver.
As the restaurant or bar has no idea what the patron is taking in the way of medications or what they eat or how old they are, etc then honestly taking CBD oil could do nothing, help them, be negated, be horrendously enhanced, harm them, etc
It is totally irresponsible.
I read this study. Was supposed to increase the potential for psychological addiction in lab monkeys. Yes, really.
The pathways for pleasure are the same for addiction, afaic.
Every mental or physical state, no matter what it is, can be described as a disease.
Skinny, fat, and health-conscious are all considered crazy, for instance.
In the enneagram test, every possibility is a weakness.
The States and every business and citizen need to tell the Feds to go pound sand. The regulation of CBD, like most of what the Fed does, is not allowed by the Constitution. If this country does not want to follow the Constitution, then the States and the Federal govt should pass one final amendment that formally shuts down the Constitution.
Still mind altering just without the high. Makes you believe propaganda more.
Because Marijuana is a Schedule I drug like Heroin, and not a Schedule II drug, the law prohibits Big Pharma and Universities from studying it like they did your Insulin, your Aspirin, your Tylenol.
All claims made about THC are anecdotal. THC does NOT help with depression, anxiety, PTSD or other psychiatric disorders.
Thus, Claims you read about or hear to the contrary are NOT backed by ANY clinical evidence.
The FDA ONLY approves THC (“medical marijuana”) for two types of seizure disorders. That’s it.
Why are we legalizing THC which has ZERO clinical studies done on it when you and I can be arrested for selling a “health” product with ZERO studies backing up our claims?
TRUE medical marijuana is HIGH in CBD and LOW in THC but 85% of ALL “medical marijuana” is HIGH in THC!
Do you see the CON going ON here?
Our country is going to pot, and fast.
Don’t get conned. Seek truth.

What you left out is HEAT. THC converts to another substance when you put a FLAME to it. SO you need to do some research before you spout out bad and incorrect info. People do not get high if they juiced a plant. They would if they baked it in other products and cookies as such. So BIG DIFFERENCE. THC in just it’s extract form DOES NOT GET YOU HIGH!!!! And smoking it does not help you in reality for health purposes because you changed the structure of it.
I have technically lumped many different products together, in my posts. I believe that they all fall under the same, moral category. Let’s call that agency or self-ownership.
I believe that kief, rosin, etc, will produce an effect, if eaten raw, unprocessed, or put in smoothies.
People making the laws have their own criminal records. I have no normalcy bias, so am suggesting frank, individual moderation — say, around steam rollers and cutting tools with large teeth.
Who should be subject to prohibition and summarily disarmed, in the tradition against redcoats…
(He says strong drink. I think, any inebriants.):
“… it is not for kings to drink wine; nor for princes strong drink: Lest they drink, and forget the law, and pervert the judgment of any of the afflicted. Give strong drink unto him that is ready to perish, and wine unto those that be of heavy hearts. Let him drink, and forget his poverty, and remember his misery no more. Open thy mouth for the dumb in the cause of all such as are appointed to destruction.”
(From Proverbs, credited to the wisest man, ever to have existed.)
What a sucker trap, DON’T GET SUCKERED, DO NOT SPEND ANY MONEY BUYING THESE KINDS OF PRODUCTS. I’ve been taking CBD oil for 2 years now and the price is not going down. You also have to keep taking it to actually do anything worthwhile. Plus, it’s too damn expensive to put in enough to have any affect. DON’T FALL FOR THIS SCAM.
No Sammy Addams, I didn’t leave out anything.
Each word of that post is TRUTH!
You are obviously a weed dealer or weed proponent because EVERY weed-stinking word of your post is a blatant LIE.
Weed has corrupted your brain.
