By now, you should have heard about CBD. If you haven’t, I encourage you to come out from whatever rock you’ve been hiding under and browse the internet for a bit.
Drive down just about any street in Austin Texas and you’ll stumble upon a place that sells CBD… chiropractors offices, smoke shops, gas stations, you get where I’m going with this right?
IT IS EVERYWHERE!
So, before diving into the best restaurants that serve CBD infused edibles… know that not all CBD is created equal and there are good and bad quality products out there. My sister and I own the number one CBD shop in Austin, RESTART CBD, and source all our hemp from organically grown farms, don’t use preservatives or artificial ingredients, and we like to advocate for a woman owned/sister owned business in our home town! Yes, it’s a little bias, but we’ve also worked HARD on creating products that are simple & actually work. Plus, creating these partnerships with some of our favorite restaurants and brands has been such a dream.
Before we dive into it… I will say that when you consume CBD in any form of an edible, it makes the product less potent. Once you swallow, your body has to go through digestion and you lose come of the CBD along the way. This doesn’t make it 100% ineffective but it is just a different way to use any cannabis infused product!
What I’ve seen through friends and partnerships with these brands is that it mentally breaks down the negative cannabis stigma and instead creates familiarity. Not everyone is on the cannabis train just yet, but, if you or someone you know is more skeptical, these are a few places you could take them to warm up to the idea! And maybe you turn that skeptic into a CBD-believer.
Alright, now let’s dig in to where to find RESTART CBD on the menu in Austin Texas.
If you’re still curious about CBD or just want to get educated, here’s a link to a previous post I did on the benefits of CBD and why I personally use it!
Hope you enjoyed this post & if you or a friend is skeptical of CBD, food is always a common ground to introduce new things.
