Houston dining institution Beaverâ€™s will serve cannabis-infused queso this weekend in celebration of stoner holiday 4/20.
Because this is Texas, of course, the queso will only be infused with cannabidiol, the non-psychoactive compound found in marijuana that has been touted for a wide range of alleged health benefits. A representative for the restaurant tells Eater that each bowl of the CBD-infused queso will boast about 25 milligrams of cannabidiol, infused into the gloopy cheese dip via a coconut oil-based tincture.
Scope out the queso below:
The cheesy, spicy greatness of queso already has mood-boosting properties, and if its proponents are right about CBD oilâ€™s ability to soothe anxiety, this dish has real potential to ward off even the worst of moods. The restaurant will also use CBD-only cannabis that is legal in Texas to add a smoky flavor to a classic Old Fashioned cocktail. Outside of the cannabis-infused options, Beaverâ€™s will also have plenty of smoky, stoner-friendly snacks from chef Arash Kharat on the menu, including Fritos chili pies and pizza.
Curious cannabis and cheese enthusiasts can try the CBD oil-infused queso at Beaverâ€™s all day on Saturday.
