Cannabis is going mainstream in the UK. It’s everywhere right now. The NHS is prescribing it, Holland & Barrett are selling it, and kids in the park are smoking it.
And soon, you’ll be able to enjoy it infused in fresh vegetarian dishes served at the UK’s very first cannabis-infused vegetarian restaurant.
The Canna Kitchen will open in Brighton on December 1st. You can attend the launch night, where you will preview 3 courses of a special canna-infused vegan/vegetarian menu, with a delicious canna mocktail to wash it down, for a special price of £25.
The menu – which features dishes such as za’atar roast cauliflower with hemp heart tabbouleh, smoked aubergine, sesame cavolo nero and CBD tahini cream – is the work of Charlotte Kjaer, an experienced vegetarian chef who enjoys “cooking with the seasons and in harmony with nature.”
Canna Kitchen founder, Sammy Ben-Rabah, says he hopes the restaurant will help to change the way people think about the plant by creating beautiful vegetarian dishes which are tastefully complimented with its infusion.
Cannabis is a highly nutritious, versatile and powerful herb, packed full of flavour, fragrance and natural therapeutic benefit.
The dishes on offer at the Canna Kitchen won’t get you high, however. The type of cannabis used in the infusions is CBD-rich cannabis with low levels of THC, otherwise known as hemp.
A hemp/CBD dispensary and headshop will also be opening above the restaurant, which is located at 14 Duke St, Brighton BN1 1AH.
