The Canna Kitchen is UK’s first Cannabis restaurant. Based in Brighton, the restaurant offers a wide range of vegan and vegetarian dishes that are infused with CBD.
The restaurant has been very successful ever since it opened last year, thanks to the UK’s interest in all things related to hemp and CBD. Canna Kitchen has immediately become a sensation in the UK and has received wide coverage from the British press.
UK’s Bohemian City
Brighton is known as the Bohemian capital of the UK and home to forward-thinking individuals. Thus, it just makes sense why Canna Kitchen chose Brighton for its location. Sam Evolution, the founder of the restaurant, is said to be involved with hemp for the past eleven years. He has owned several businesses that specialized in producing hemp-derived products like derma creams and various food products. Just like the other entrepreneurs in the hemp business, Evolution has a great appreciation for the revolutionary CBD and hemp products.
He has always been inspired by the hemp’s rich history most especially from its potential to revolutionize the industry of health, agriculture etc. His idea of combining CBD with a restaurant concept is a result of an old fashion method of home testing.
Healthy Vegan and Vegetarian Dishes
The dishes served in Canna Kitchen include classic vegan dishes made from seasonal root vegetables. They also have fresh salads and homemade hummus drizzled with tahini that’s infused with CBD. Their popular Canna sandwiches are available in a choice of halloumi or tofu in sourdough bread. The sandwiches are then served with salads that come with CBD infused dressing.
One of the most popular desserts is the Canna Snickers, which is loosely based on the popular chocolate bar that’s made from homemade cake and layered with date caramel. It’s served on top of a brownie biscuit that’s made from hemp and coated with dark chocolate topped with nut sprinkles.
Change People’s View on Cannabis
According to the founder, the company’s mission is to try to change the way people view cannabis. He personally believes that CBD is truly effective in terms of managing pain. It helps to minimize body pain, thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties and its ability to interact with the endocannabinoid system of the body. A lot of people have also reported benefiting from the CBD when treating their anxiety and depression. Others have found it to be effective in improving their quality of sleep.
The misconception that CBD and hemp are closely linked to the drug culture is something that the Canna Kitchen is trying to dispel. Indeed, the restaurant’s mission statement clearly states that their aim is to redress stereotypes that have mislabeled the CBD as a recreational substance. The restaurant is also taking a cautious approach when it comes to the legal issues surrounding the CBD. In fact, the founder has to concisely present his plans to the local authorities. He considers his approach very carefully.
