The fast food restaurant, Carl’s Jr. will begin testing CBD infused burgers in Denver. It’s going to be for sale for one day, April 20th, for $4.20. The references couldn’t smack you in the face harder, oh wait… It’s called the Rocky Mountain High Cheeseburger. It is two beef patties, pickled jalapenos, pepper jack cheese, waffle fries and 5 milligrams of CBD mixed in their Santa Fe Sauce. Carl’s Jr. will take claim to the first fast food restaurant to feature food with CBD.
Both CBD and THC have significant therapeutic attributes. But unlike THC, CBD does not make a person feel “stoned” or intoxicated. That’s because CBD and THC act in different ways on different receptors in the brain and body.
CBD seems to have made some progress for treating epilepsy, anxiety, inflammation, sleep deprivation, depression, and as an anti-psychotic. But it is still is unproven in most of these fields, but there is hope or they wouldn’t be testing these areas. There is also a lot of concern about CBD since it isn’t regulated…
A 2017 study led by Bonn-Miller found that nearly 7 of 10 CBD products didn’t contain the amount of marijuana extract promised on the label.
Also 1 in 5 of the tested CBD products did contain THC, which makes seizures worse for epileptic patients. There also hasn’t been enough studies on how CBD can interact with peoples other medications, that could potentially be a time bomb for those not paying attention.
I’m not an expert in this subject, I’ve actually actively avoided marijuana. I wouldn’t eat something with CBD in it, but that’s just me. I’ll have to take people’s word for it if it helps with these problems or not, so sound off in the comments section about it. Good luck Carl’s Jr. with you trial, and if this really does have as many benefits as people are always talking about, great!
