In something that is totally new tech-related, Carl's Jr. has announced it will be selling a CBD-infused burger at one of its locations in Denver, on 4/20.
CBD is all over the place in the US now as more states legalize it, and the industry is quickly growing as a whole including a now major fast food chain in the US with Carl's Jr. and the first CBD-infused burger. The burger in question is the Rocky Mountain High: CheeseBurger Delight features two beef patties, pickled jalapenos, pepper jack cheese, waffle fries and then around 5mg of hemp-derived CBD extract in the burger chain's Santa Fe Sauce.
The burger will of course sell for $4.20, while Carl's Jr. will have at least 1000 of them to sell. Denver, Colorado was the first US state to legalize marijuana, so it's fitting that Carl's Jr. uses the state to sell the first CBD-infused burger. Carl's Jr. senior vice president of marketing, Patty Trevino, explains: "We are a West Coast brand. The states out in the West Coast have been the ones to really adopt and appreciate and be open to cannabis".
