Itialian inspired eatery Col'Cacchio has launched the first cannabis oil infused pizza in Cape Town. Those who’d like to try the new selection can choose between the meat-free Green Goddess pizza (with grilled zucchini, feta and fresh basil), or the ‘meatier’ Mary Jane pizza (with chicken, Peppadews, mushrooms and avocado dressing).
If You are wondering why they launched this, it said that CBD is believed to have many benefits; it can help to reduce anxiety, alleviate arthritis, and act as an anti-inflammatory,” the chain said in an Instagram video when they launched the news.
Co-founder of Col’Cacchio, Kinga Baranowska, said: “The pizzas will be drizzled with AfricanPure Cannabidiol (CBD oil) which contains no THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) or synthetic chemicals, making it absolutely safe to enjoy. Customers will also be able to add CBD oil to any other dish on the menu at an additional cost of R25.”
AfricanPure is just one of the leading African CBD brands to have come on to the market in South Africa since the announcement by the National Department of Health that CBD can be legally bought in the country.
