Carl’s Jr. announced Wednesday it will be the first major fast food chain to launch a cannabis-based product when they offer a CBD-infused burger on Apr. 20. April 20 is commonly known as 4/20, the national cannabis holiday.
Unfortunately for us Oregonians, The Rocky Mountain High: CheeseBurger Delight will be sold at the Denver location only, the chain announced via social media.
“4/20 only: We’re dropping our Rocky Mountain High Cheese Burger Delight with CBD-infused Sante Fe sauce at one Denver location only. #rockymountainhigh”
There is a possibility the chain may one day roll out CBD-infused burgers across country, Carl’s Jr. says.
“If anyone is going to do it, I would want Carl’s Jr. to do it,” said Patty Trevino, Carl’s Jr.’s senior vice president of brand marketing.
Carl’s Jr. may be the first fast food chain to move toward the ever-popular CBD, but it’s not the first mainstream company to embrace the beneficial extract. Blue Star Donuts, CVS, Weller, and others have jumped on the hype train recently.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is extracted from the flowers and buds of marijuana or hemp plants. The non-intoxicating extract cannot get you high.
