The Mainstream Status of CBD
The FDA has not approved CBD for use in food or beverages. That’s not stopping anybody from putting CBD in food and drinks though. There have been countless CBD infused coffees, waters, and other drinks available to purchase in recent years and there still is. Restaurants across the country are adding CBD to their menu infusing it into all kinds of food and cocktails. In fact, just recently, top culinary experts were asked to rank the trends in food and beverages for 2019 and at the top of the list was CBD foods and drinks.
Additionally, drugstore chains such as CVS and Walgreens have decided to embrace the cannabis industry by offering CBD infused products in their stores as well. Many of these locations, however, will only offer topical cannabis products such as lotions and salves.
