Customers can now add a few drops of CBD oil to give more kick to the Laotion and Thai dishes.
Lucy’s Red Hot CBD oil, made by Red Hot Organics, is a THC-free hemp and chili extract that is all organic. CBD derived from hemp is federally legal in the U.S.
CBD oil users swear by its therapeutic uses as a rubbing oil or food additive. By law, it contains only trace amounts of THC, the psychoactive compound found in marijuana.

There are already a number of CBD food products on the market, including sparkling waters and candy, and the popularity of CBD cocktails and dishes at restaurants has been increasing.
