If you’re living in Los Angeles and haven’t experienced—or at least been inundated with the praises of—CBD, then let us offer a little explanation. CBD, or cannabidiol, is derived from the cannabis plant but doesn’t have the psychoactive property that gets you high. Among the claims of this super-trendy ingredient, which is making its way into everything from bottled water to body oil, are reduced anxiety and relief from inflammation and pain.
With many people actively embracing CBD (whether or not they also enjoy its THC-enhanced counterpart), the annual cannabis appreciation day this Friday, April 20th—better known as 420—now includes a lot more, er, artisanal ways to celebrate.
This Friday, from 2pm to 11pm, Van Leeuwen’s Franklin Village location (5915 Franklin Ave) is offering special $6 sundaes (vegan options are available, too) topped with CBD-infused fudge, courtesy of the Alchemist’s Kitchen.
To make things even cozier, the shop will be covered with Buffy’s cloud-like comforters for optimum lounging. Ice cream, CBD and bedding? Even if 420’s not typically your “thing,” you’d be hard pressed to find a reason not to take advantage of this tranquil trifecta.
