Comfort food is a bit of a dirty word (or phrase) in the world of health and fitness. While we want to limit our intake of “comfort foods” sometimes a little indulgent reward is in order. For some it may come in the form of cookies, cakes or other sweets. For others, it may be pizza, burgers or french fries. While all of our naughty foods of choice may vary, they all share one thing in common. They bringing us a hint of joy, even if just for a fleeting moment.
Just by the name we know what comfort foods do, they make us more comfortable for one reason or another. How they do that is a bit different for everyone whether it’s bringing some flavor into a bland diet, or pumping up the serotonin levels prior to a woman’s period. But what if there was a way to bring a universal comfort promoter to our comfort foods? Enter CBD oil. Restaurants, chefs, and food manufacturers are beginning to experiment with adding pure CBD oil to their various food stuffs.
Restaurants are taking their relationship with hemp to the next level by adding CBD or cannabinoids to dishes. CBD is the non-intoxicating component of the cannabis plant... And on April 20th, the unofficial getting-high holiday, Carl’s Jr., owned by Franklin, Tenn-based CKE, plans to release a burger paired with the chain's Santa Fe Sauce infused with a hemp-based CBD oil. The burger, Rocky Mountain High: Cheese Burger Delight (CBD), will be sold for one day only at a Carl’s Jr. in Denver, where use of CBD as a food additive is legal in Colorado. In addition to the special sauce, the burger is topped with pickled jalapeños, pepper jack cheese, and fries.
Adding cannabidiol to sauces is a popular trend which allows your guests and taste testers to choose if they like the added ingredient, but there are other ways to incorporate CBD into food. Sugar and Kush has both flavored and unflavored tinctures that can be used as standalone products or added to food. Sugar and Kush also already has CBD gummies that can be snacked on anywhere at anytime. Besides CBD gummy bears and drops, Sugar and Kush also has a variety of CBD cookies and other CBD edibles to soothe those cravings for sweets but without the sugar. Most recently, Sugar and Kush CBD topicals were introduced, such as our Vanilla CBD bath bombs.
While the science behind CBD hemp oil is catching up to the evolving legislation around hemp, we do know there are thousands of people that are reaving about CBD product. While no two people’s experiences are the same, if you are looking to try a possible natural alternative, why not do it in the form of something you enjoy?
