On April 20, the unofficial holiday for cannabis enthusiasts, Carls's Jr. is selling a CBD-infused burger at one of its Denver locations. 

According to NBC, The burger chain’s Rocky Mountain High: CheeseBurger Delight features two beef patties, pickled jalapenos, pepper jack cheese, waffle fries — and about 5 milligrams of hemp-derived CBD extract in the burger chain’s Santa Fe Sauce.

Supporters claim that CBD, a non-psychoactive compound found in hemp and marijuana, can help with anxiety and pain relief, among other ailments, although little scientific research has been done to back up those assertions.
