It was only a matter of time folks. One of the big boy fast food chains stepped it up and joined in the CBD-infused food and drink craze. And that fast food chain is………(drumroll)………Carl’s Jr. And they will be making history on the most obvious of days with a 4/20 debut. So that makes it official, Carls Jr. will be the first ever fast food chain to offer a CBD-infused item.
This coming Saturday, Carl’s Jr. will debut the CBD-infused “Rocky Mountain High: CheeseBurger Delight” at one single location in Denver, Colorado. The CBD burger will be available for $4.20 during the one-day test run. And while CBDipedia.com does not yet offer this burger on its site, you can check out the amazing array of CBD products that are offered. CBD products exactly like the one used by Carl’s Jr.
The delicious but not so nutritious sounding “CheeseBurger Delight” consists of two beef patties, is loaded with pickled jalapenos, a slice of pepper jack cheese, fries, and the CBD-infused “Santa Fe Sauce.”
Carl’s Jr. truly is an innovator in the fast food sector. They have been working on the launch of the CBD-infused burger since their vegan Beyond Meat burger launch in early January 2019.
There was much thought that went into Carl’s Jr.’s decision to make a CBD-infused burger, especially with the company’s legal team. A Denver location was picked as the 4/20 test spot in part because Colorado legalized recreational marijuana in 2014.
Carls Jr. execs say that the test is more than a one-day 4/20 stunt. They will be monitoring sales and customer and franchisee responses, and if all goes well, expanding the test remains an option on the table. Even with the possibility of rolling out a CBD-infused burger across the whole United States market.
There is a small issue with going national. Navigating state-by-state regulations regarding CBD could prove to be challenging. Carl’s Jr. has an advantage as a West Coast chain, operating in more states that have fully legalized marijuana. Those locations should have no issues with the acceptance of the CBD item on the menu. In total, Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s, (the sister brand that dominates the South and Midwest) have 3,800 locations in 44 states and overseas.
As you already know, CBD, has been celebrated for its potential health benefits. It is the nonpsychoactive component of marijuana. This means meaning that eating a CBD burger will not get you high. With the passage of last year’s farm bill, CBD is becoming more accepted and more mainstream, despite reports of dangerous ingredients and misleading labels.
It is not just restaurants that are intrigued by CBD, Walgreens and CVS have signed deals to sell CBD topicals. The banks and Wall Street are paying attention too. A team of analysts at investment bank Cowen recently estimated that the US market for CBD could skyrocket to $16 billion by 2025 from roughly $1 billion to $2 billion right now.
The source of the CBD oil is from Bluebird Botanicals, a Colorado-based CBD company.
The “Rocky Mountain High: CheeseBurger Delight” will be sold at the Carl’s Jr. at 4050 Colorado Blvd. in Denver location starting at 6 a.m. on Saturday. CBD burgers will be served while supplies last. Something tells me they are going to run out.
