Right after West Coast Ventures’ (OTC: WCVC) “Illegal Pizza” in the U.S., a well-known South African restaurant and pizzeria launches its first cannabis pizza. CBD is what makes the pizza “amazing”.
The U.S. is among many countries in the world where cannabis edibles business gains popularity. West Coast Ventures Group and their flag franchise, Illegal Burger, is the first Amercian CBD restaurant stock. In the first year of operation the company earned $3,054,623 in revenue and is continuously growing in profit.
On June 13, West Coast Ventures expanded their business and opened Illegal Pizza. Just like in the other franchise, the restaurant offers a CBD-infused menu and their famous Illegal Brands CBD water.
In Italy, cannabis edibles are also entering the market. Just recently, the first cannabis icicles have become available in Italian supermarkets, along with other hemp ice-creams and granitas that in recent years have overlooked the gastronomic landscape of the country.
Today the news comes from South Africa. The Col’ Cacchio franchise will be the first in Cape Town to launch a cannabis pizza. The novelty stems from the fact that the local Health Department announced last September that cannabis for personal use can be legally purchased in the country.
The pizzas will be seasoned with AfricanPure Cannabidiol (CBD oil) which does not contain THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) or synthetic chemicals, making it absolutely safe to consume. But customers can choose to add this oil to any other dish on the menu at an additional cost.
In particular, there will be two variations of cannabis pizza sold in Cape Town: Mary Jane with chicken, mushrooms, Peppadew (hot peppers) and avocado sauce and the Green Goddess (for vegetarians) with grilled zucchini, feta and fresh basil. The difference in comparison to the other options will be in the seasoning, precisely the cannabis oil.
The owner of Col’ Cacchio, who is always looking for new recipes for his customers in line with the latest health trends, has decided to include these original pizzas in the menu initially only once a week, but after a great success, they are now a fixed position on the menu.
The co-founder of the restaurant, Kinga Baranowska, was the reason for the decision to serve cannabis pizzas:
“CBD is believed to have many advantages; it can help reduce anxiety, relieve arthritis and act as an anti-inflammatory remedy.”
South African law specifies that the maximum daily dose of cannabis per person is 20 mg, which means that each customer can only order one pizza.
In fact, hemp pizza is present in Italy too. In 2018 it was launched in Bolzano by the restaurant Fink, where they use cannabis flour to make dough.
