The news is in, and when it comes to cannabis trends in 2019, cannabis CBD infused beverages hold the top spot for what’s coming in hot. A survey was conducted by the National Restaurant Association in which 650 chefs participated in ranking 140 trends in the ‘What’s Hot – 2019 Culinary Forecast‘. Trends were divided into three categories: Perennial Favourite, Hot & Yesterday’s News.
The number one spot went to pot, well actually it went to CBD which is quite a bit different, but that’s another story. CBD infused foods took second place, and third place went to what many believe should be number one, and that is the trend of zero waste cooking.
The Complex Legalities Of CBD
CBD food and beverages are a hot topic these days. Some places are embracing CBD and others are treating it as a garden weed. The FDA currently does not allow any CBD in food and beverages because they already approved pharmaceutical drugs that contain CBD and now that CBD is showing up in food everywhere, the FDA has to assert they have not solidified its safety or effectiveness for going into food and beverage products.
That’s not slowing things down a bit for this smoking hot cannabinoid. Imagine if CBD were openly accepted and allowed to be sold without hassle everywhere. If it’s doing as good as it is now, it could be a game-changer for both people and the planet.
CBD is Going Mainstream
Businesses across the country in the United States are finding great success with CBD foods and beverages. In Las Vegas where what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, many are taking the joy of learning about the benefits of CBD home with them as a go-to for preventing and curing hangovers.
Bars such as Tap 42 in Florida offer cocktails like “Gin and Chronic” and the “Hangover Cure Shot” both of which infuse CBD tea into alcoholic concoctions. The only thing slowing CBD sales down from totally dominating the market is possibly the cost associated with them. As CBD becomes more readily available and the prices go down, it’s easy to see this product becoming an in-demand trend for years to come.
