Non-psychoactive CBD-infused products are making their way into restaurants and hotel mini-bars in cities across America, reports Moneyish.
Several high-end hotels in New York have begun offering room service from a menu of CBD-infused comfort foods and others are stocking CBD gummies in the minibar. Restaurants and hotels both in Los Angeles and New York have also begun offering CBD-spiked cocktails, ice cream sundaes, and multiple-course CBD dinners.
CBD-only infusions — legal across the country — are a huge boon for businesses looking to sidestep the federal prohibition of cannabis but still participate in the growing cannabis economy. Coffee shops offering CBD lattes have also opened up in many states across the U.S., as well as endless companies offering CBD hemp extracts online.
“We’re always researching new ways to help our guests relax. CBD extract is proven to have calming effects, easing anxiety and stress. With it being legal in all 50 states, we knew we wanted to get involved.” — James La Russo, a manager at The James Nomad hotel in NYC, via Moneyish
As more tourists come into beneficial contact with cannabinoids other than THC in the privacy of their hotel room, or at restaurants or ice cream shops, acceptance of the entire cannabis plant will likely follow.
