Thailands Chiang Mai gets a taste of CBD cuisine. ‘Maejo Chuan Yim Chim Kan (Cha)’, or Maejo university cannabis open market, was held on Saturday at the Natural Agricultural Research and Development Center, with more than 45 famous restaurants from Chiang Mai participating.
Cannabidiol, or as it’s better known CBD, is a legal cannabinoid (chemicals found in cannabis).
It’s not the psychoactive cannabinoid that gets you high, called THC. Instead it’s a product believed by its high-street users to have medicinal properties, such as relaxation and pain-, nausea- and anxiety-relief, although studies are not conclusive.
CBD is normally sold in combination with a base oil, such as olive or coconut, as a supplement, vape, gel to be applied to the skin and more recently, in food and drink.
Scores of people enjoyed a wide range of food, drinks and snacks that were prepared using the cannabis plant in Chiang Mai, Thailand on Saturday.
Maejo University has assigned the Natural Agricultural Research and Development Center to research on growing and harvesting medical marijuana in an industrialized system.
