Crussh Fit Food and Juice Bars has become the first food-to-go retailer on the British high street to offer CBD (cannabidiol) oil to its customers as a coffee booster along with the introduction of a new menu.
The health food chain will add the naturally occurring compound found in the hemp plant to any coffee on its menu for £1.50.
Cannabidiol is one of the numerous unique compounds called cannabinoids which naturally occur in hemp. It doesn’t contain the psychoactive part of the plant that cannabis contains, known as THC. There are numerous studies currently happening to test the effectiveness of CBD in treating a whole host of ailments, from mild anxiety to epilepsy.
Crussh will also introduce two new Indian-inspired Summer Fit Bowls offering two of the required five a day, including the chicken tikka salad and plant-based spiced chickpea salad.
The Crussh summer menu will be available from 7 May 2019 and will include:
- Chicken tikka fit bowl (2/5 a day, high protein, GF, WF, from £5.95) – chicken tikka with turmeric cauliflower rice, kachumber salad, pickled red onion, mint raita dressing and crispy chickpeas.
