National fast-food chain Carl’s Jr plans to release a specialty cheeseburger at one of its Denver locations topped with CBD-infused sauce to celebrate 4/20, the unofficial Cannabis lover’s holiday. Carl’s Jr’s “Rocky Mountain High CheeseBurger Delight” will be sold Saturday exclusively at the burger joint’s location at 4050 Colorado Blvd reports Vail Daily.

Selling for $4.20, the burger will have two beef patties topped with pepper jack cheese, Carl’s Jr’s “Crisscut” waffle fries, pickled jalapenos and a signature “Santa Fe Sauce” infused with 5 milligrams of CBD. Customers must be 18 or older to buy it will be limited to two burgers. Sales start at 6 am and will continue until supplies run out or the store closes.
The burger won’t contain anything considered illegal at the federal level. The CBD in the sauce is derived from hemp, not THC the cannabis compound that gets marijuana consumers high. Advocates tout CBD’s relaxing and pain-relieving effects but just how the burger will make each diner feel is unclear.
Colorado was the first state to legalize recreational use of marijuana when voters passed a measure in 2012, leading to the first sales on Jan. 1, 2014. The marijuana industry is one of the fastest growing in the state. Last year, medical and recreational dispensaries sold $1.55 billion of marijuana.
