More specifically, the special burger will be layered with two 100% Angus beef patties, topped with pepper jack cheese, Carl's Jr's "Crisscut" waffle fries (for crunch), pickled jalapenos and a special Santa Fe Sauce infused with 5 milligrams of hemp-derived CBD for each serving.
The restaurant will test a CBD-infused burger at one of its Denver locations for one day only: April 20, the unofficial holiday for cannabis enthusiasts.
CBD has been popping up in lattes, gummies, skin-care products and even pet food: It has become one of the biggest trends of the year and is only expected to grow. After the Beyond Meat launch, they came up with a wish list that included a CBD product.
Libya crisis: Tripoli offensive continues Since fighting began in early April, dozens of people have been killed, and more than 18,000 have been displaced. An emergency official in the city told Reuters that two people were killed.
Recreational use of cannabis was legalised in Colorado in 2014.
Trevino said the test is more than a one-day 4/20 stunt. In total, Carl's Jr. and Hardee's, its sister brand that dominates the South and Midwest, have 3,800 locations in 44 states and internationally. The burger features a sauce infused with CBD, or cannabidiol, a non-psychoactive hemp derivative.
While navigating state-by-state regulations could prove to be challenging, Trevino says that Carl's Jr. has an advantage as a West Coast chain, operating in more states that have fully legalized marijuana.
CBD, which has been celebrated for its potential health benefits, is the nonpsychoactive component of marijuana - meaning that eating a CBD burger will not get you high. The CBD oil in the burgers is sourced from local company Bluebird Botanicals. Appropriately priced at $4.20, the burger will be available exclusively at Carl's Jr.at 4050 Colorado Boulevard in Denver on April 20 beginning at 6 a.m.
