Carl’s Jr. will be the first official fast food chain in the Country to jump on the 4/20 celebration by creating a CBD infused product.
Carl’s Jr. announced that this saturday only at the 4050 Colorado Blvd., in Denver, Colorado location will the Rocky Mountain High CBD burger will be served.
According to Business Insider, the burger is supposed to include two beef patties topped with pickled jalapeños, pepper jack cheese, french fries, and the real star—a brand new, CBD-infused Santa Fe Sauce. For the price of… you guessed it $4.20.
The restaurant will start selling the CBD burger at 6 a.m. this Saturday. And it will sell the sandwich for as long as supplies last.
CBD is different from THC so there will be no psychoactive effects. Meaning, you will not get high but you may experience the calming effects of the new sauce the the cannabinoid is known for producing.
According to Business Insider, Carl’s Jr. will be paying close attention to how well the CBD burger performs this weekend. If the company likes what it sees, we may see the new sandwich as a regular menu item.
Because it’s a cannabis-derived product, the company may have to navigate some tricky legal waters.
However, with important legal changes that favor CBD derived from hemp, CBD products tend to be easier to bring to the public for consumption.
