CBD Gaining in Popularity in London’s Restaurants

Cannabidiol (CBD) is heading for big things in the United Kingdom. Many analysts believe that, as public appetite continues to grow, CBD could become one of the fastest-growing industries in the UK.

Many high quality CBD products are now available to address this demand, helping customers to live healthier and happier lives. Bars and restaurants have also begun capitalising upon the excitement around CBD.

In London, there are a number of restaurants incorporating CBD into their menus. These initiatives can elevate the status of CBD and improve awareness and understanding, helping to eliminate old stigmas.

We’ve taken a look at why CBD is exploding in popularity, how London’s restaurants are incorporating CBD into their menus, and what this means for the future of CBD.

What Makes CBD a Natural Fit for the Food Industry?

As our society and the people within it continue to change, so do the prevailing priorities and attitudes. Now, a huge emphasis is placed upon health and wellness. In fact, health and wellness is now billed as the next trillion dollar industry.

Health and wellness has become a way of life for many people. Rather than simply avoiding being sick, people now actively attempt to better themselves through exercise and a healthy diet.

To further improve their health, a large number of people now use devices and applications to monitor their body and diet. Many also use a range of supplements and promising superfoods to help them bolster their health.

The food industry has always adapted in accordance with those shifting attitudes, both mirroring and shaping the eating habits of people in a bid to keep them healthy.

CBD ticks all of the boxes: it has a range of benefits, it’s adaptable, and it’s becoming increasingly popular. It’s little wonder that so many restaurants are beginning to make the most of this supplement to satisfy their customers.

How Is CBD Being Used In Restaurants?

CBD oil is an ingredient in a range of warm and cold drinks at restaurants and cafés throughout London. Farmacy, for example, effortlessly incorporates the product in a range of juices and cocktails. The kitchen focuses on wellness, making this a shining example of how restaurants are making the most of CBD.

Farm Girl is another café that offers a signature CBD-infused drink. The Happy Hot Chocolate brings together CBD oil alongside matcha, cacao, peppermint, and hazelnut milk. This provides a delicious and healthy option for health-conscious visitors. 

Yogland is pushing the envelope even further, offering vegan frozen yoghurt with a 40% dose of CBD oil. A hemp matcha flavour reigns supreme, demonstrating that the food and flavour of CBD products can be innovative.

Many restaurants also offer snacks that allow diners to get their dose of CBD. Plant Hub offers a range of tasty treats which are all plant-based and entirely organic, including energy bars and banana bread.

Alcoholic drinks are also a popular conduit for CBD oil. Behind This Wall is a trendy basement bar that has an ever-evolving drinks menu that regularly features CBD-infused concoctions. Likewise, Maison Bab is famous for its Gin & Chronic drink, which brings together gin and a serving of CBD oil.

The diversity of products shows that there is no limit to what can be achieved within the food industry. Customers have a variety of options and as personal use continues to increase, so will demand in restaurants and bars.

What Is Next For CBD?

As customers become more conscious of the potential of CBD and old stigmas disappear, we can expect demand to increase. This will lead to CBD becoming more common in restaurants and to increased sales of direct-to-consumer products. This will, in turn, lead to the production of new recipes and products.

We are also excited to see how restaurants and cafés continue to incorporate CBD into their offerings. Innovation in these areas will continue to help individuals to get as much as possible from CBD.
