(Reuters) - Carl’s Jr will become the first fast food chain to sell a CBD-infused hamburger when its “Rocky Mountain High Cheeseburger Delight” goes on sale in Denver on Saturday, the company said.

The Tennessee-based chain is selling the burger for just one day at one location in northeast Denver as part of its strategy to test out “bold and unexpected” flavors, the company said in a statement on Wednesday.

“CBD is one of the hottest culinary trends right now, and what better place to test this new burger than in Denver, a city that has been a trailblazer in the CBD movement,” said Carl’s Jr spokeswoman Candice Jacobson.
