Carl’s Jr. Will Sell a CBD-Infused Burger for 4/20

By  | 

With 4/20 rolling around the corner, we can expect plenty of corny cannabis-themed advertisements that are sure to make us cringe. A newcomer in the ring this year is Carl’s Jr., that will be releasing its “Rocky Mountain High Cheese Burger Delight,” smothered in a CBD-infused “Santa Fe Sauce.” The burger will be topped with cheese and pickled jalapenos, and will only be available in Denver.

While unless you’re making the pilgrimage to Colorado for your 4/20 celebrations, it seems like us San Diegans will have to sit this one out. But I wouldn’t worry, as early reports of this burger point to the fact that the CBD-infused sauce will actually only have 5 mg of CBD per serving, which is barely enough to even feel the benefits.

Benefits of which, can be quite pronounced if taken in higher quantities. CBD has been shown to help people with inflammation, anxiety, epilepsy, and a host of other issues. However, it must be consumed in much higher quantities than what you’d find in this monstrosity of a burger, especially due to the fact that eating CBD dramatically reduces it effectiveness.

When consuming CBD through food, a lot of it will be absorbed by the fat in your body, and barely making it to your brain, which is where the magic happens. This is why CBD is typically consumed in oil tincture or vaping, as it hits your bloodstream much quicker, giving you a more pronounced effect. It will not get you high like its psychoactive cousin, THC.

A company like Carl’s Jr. becoming involved with offering its customers CBD-infused products just goes to show how quickly we are becoming engrossed in this compound. Previously illegal, CBD has exploded in popularity in states across the country.

While the Rocky Mountain High Cheese Burger Delight might not be the best way to get your helping of CBD, CBD-infused foods are all the rage right now in trendy restaurants. You can find CBD in anything from smoothies and coffee, to CBD-infused baked goods, salad dressings, and steaks.

Our fascination and obsession with CBD is a big boon to the health and wellness of people, as well as a nice stimulus to the economy, as CBD centered companies are popping up left and right. For more info on the best CBD products in San Diego out right now, we got you covered.
