Vegan Street Food Firm Launch New 'CBD Oil' Sauces


CBD oil, a trendy food supplement, is growing in popularity in the UK. And now Walthamstow street food restaurant The Green Grill is joining the trend by launching new CBD infused sauces for their trademark burgers and bites.



Vegan Street Food Firm Launch New 'CBD Oil' Sauces

A POPULAR Walthamstow street-food restaurant is among the first in the country to create new sauces made from CBD oil. 

The Green Grill, based at the CRATE hub on St James Street, serve finger-licking plant-based junk food, including burgers and kimchi hotdogs. 

And founders Robbie Rees and Joel Elster have made a new addition to the menu - sauces crafted with hemp-derived CBD oil. 

The oil, aka ‘cannabidiol’, is extracted from cannabis plants but contains only trace amounts of the high-giving chemical ‘tetrahydrocannabinol’, making it perfectly legal. 

It’s classed as a super-food supplement and powerful antioxidant, said to promote health and wellbeing. 

Robbie, a semi-professional footballer, and Joel, a seasoned hospitality consultant, have teamed up with leading UK brand CBD Armour to launch the dishes. 

And Robbie says the sauces have proved an instant hit. 

He adds: “We made a garlic and basil Alioli - a type of Spanish mayonnaise - to go with our signature dish, our green monster burger. 

“And the CBD sauce went down a treat! It’s created a lot of awareness about CBD in general, and the sauces are proving massively popular. 

“The moment you mention CBD sauce to someone they say 'yeah I'll have it' straight away!’

“It gave the sauce a nutty flavour without being too overpowering and CBD comes with added health benefits, too."

The Green Grill was formed as a street stall in 2017, and their food is also now being sold at the newly-opened ‘Green Vic’ pub in Shoreditch - said to be the ‘the world’s most ethical bar’. 

Other eye-catching items on the Green Grill menu include the bright ‘Red Devil’ sweet potato burger, the ‘Mighty Meaty’ burger with a soy based patty, and vegan hot ‘dawgs’ dripping with hot sauce. 

They also serve mac & cheese, Cajun chips and cheesy bites.
