So the other day my significant other and I decided to head down to our local Carl’s Junior. They debuted a CBD infused burger on 4/20 (the first major fast-food chain to do so). Get this, the “Rocky Mountain High Cheeseburger Delight”. It was only being offered at one location, and we live close. So we figured, why not? While my sweetie and I were chowing down on this thing, we were informed by an employee that it was actually the “Santa Fe” sauce infused with CBD. I found this interesting and moved on with lunch. As we casually chatted she blurted out “I just had a brainstorm”. “Uh-oh” I thought to myself. She continued by making me aware that we were having a party at our place. She then proceeded to tell me that I was nominated to make my famous salsa and infuse it with CBD. She looked me right in the eye and said “well, you in”? It did actually sound like a lot of fun, so I said “Yes, I’m in”.
CBD has become a topic of interest, with our circle of friends, as of late. They were all aware that CBD does not have the psychoactive effects that THC does. So, it doesn’t get you “high”. CBD salsa would be the perfect crowd-pleaser, I had to admit. We finished our CBD burgers (which were awesome btw) and headed home. I had half the battle licked; I already had a good CBD oil connection in CBDHempWise. I could always rely on them for good CBD oil that was cheap. In fact, I had just recently purchased a bottle of Mojito Lime Hemp Extract (Extra Strength – 1oz, 1000mg CBD). I love the stuff; it’s actually been a big game changer in my life. My girlfriend is the social butterfly. I’m more of an introvert; prone to anxiety. That includes social anxiety. I like CBD because I’ve never noticed any negative CBD hemp oil side effects. The CBD hemp oil benefits I experience are very positive. It sets my mind at ease knowing it’s legal as well. My CBD oil dosage will vary, depending on the situation. My anxiety is probably medium when it comes to parties, but with CBD I’m chill.
My better half and I have purchased all our party favors and decorations (and beer). I tracked down everything for my salsa too. I made a small batch last night for a trial run. My gorgeous gal raved about it. There is little doubt as to her sincerity – she devoured copious amounts of the stuff. We polished off our beers and agreed the salsa was a real winner. We were feeling pretty confident about our upcoming party (I’ll update this blog following are little soirée). I thought some of you may enjoy the recipe, so I’ve included it below. Stay thirsty my friends.
