CBD is approved by the FDA for treating certain forms of epilepsy. As medicine cannot be marketed/sold as a food product (also per FDA), I’m wondering how they’re able to pull this off.

suuure, it’s not a publicity stunt – that’s why they are doing their marketing test of this on 4/20.

CBD sold under the trade name Epidiolex is considered medicine by the FDA. CBD not sold as medicine does not apply under FDA ruling, since it’s considered a non-psychoactive supplement.

That burger is hovering around 3000 calories with 3 grams of sodium, gut bomb and a half.

At our home, we prefer the CBD / THC edibles sans any sugar. And yes, I’m enjoying a mixture of both right now.

Cannabis is legal in Colorado, but it still requires a license to sell it. Has Carl’s Jr. gotten that license? The article doesn’t mention it. This sounds like a dumb idea.
