By Mara Miller

The National Resturant Association recently surveyed 650 professional chefs about the top culinary and restaurant trends for 2019 and found that three out of every four chefs said CBD- and cannabis-infused foods will be a top food trend, according to CNBC.com. Cannabis remains illegal at the federal level, but has been legalized in 10 states for recreational purposes. CBD oil lacks THC, which is the component of cannabis that intoxicates the user. The article also reports that some restaurateurs want to get in on the trend with less scrutiny and so they have turned to private clubs to offer these dishes. And, while some states have legalized cannabis and most CBD products became legal under federal law in December, some restaurants with chefs who offer CBD and cannabis-infused foods may get points docked by health departments because it does not have FDA approval.
