A restaurant that will offer meals infused with cannabis is due to open in the UK on December 1. The vegetarian and vegan dishes served at this Brighton restaurant will be infused with CBD compounds extracted from the cannabis plant.
The Canna Kitchen aims at changing the way people look at marijuana. The range of vegan and vegetarian dishes infused with CBD will show that marijuana isn’t just for recreational use. The restaurant wants to show the different fragrances, flavors, therapeutic and nutritional benefits inherent in the cannabis plant.
However, a client will first place an order to have his or her meal infused with CBD. This means that vegans or vegetarians who aren’t interested in sampling the cannabis-infused offerings can still dine at the restaurant.
It should be remembered that cannabis is a restricted substance in the UK and only became legal for medicinal use on November 1 this year. Those found in possession of cannabis may be jailed for five years while those found distributing it can be imprisoned for 14-years or face huge fines.
So, how will “The Canna Kitchen” operate legally? The laws in the UK permit the use of the non-psychoactive compounds in the marijuana plant. This means that the restaurant can freely use CBD and other non-psychoactive cannabinoids in its dishes without contravening any existing laws.
Cannabis is still highly restricted across the world. Only a few countries, including Canada and Uruguay, have legalized recreational marijuana. Ten states in the U.S. have permitted recreational marijuana and there are campaigns to end prohibition in more states.
Medical marijuana has fared better across the world with more countries making it legal nearly every month. This growing interest in cannabis has prompted many huge multinationals like Coca Cola to explore avenues of making cannabis-infused drinks so that the companies cash in on the wave of popularity that has engulfed marijuana. That wave of popularity is projected to be worth approximately $75 billion by 2030. That is such a huge magnet to anyone looking for a money-making opportunity.
Against that backdrop, the idea behind The Canna Kitchen is likely to trigger other entrepreneurial ventures all geared at bringing more cannabis-infused products to the market. After all, marijuana is now the new “cool” and even politicians are falling over each other to show support for legalization.
Existing industry players like GreenBox POS, LLC (OTC: GRBX) and Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQX: LXRP) welcome the initiative taken by the brains behind The Canna Kitchen. Such efforts will be remembered when the cannabis industry becomes fully established around the world.
