East London street food venture launches cannabis oil sauces
The Green Grill, based at the CRATE hub on St James Street, serve finger-licking plant-based junk food including burgers and kimchi hotdogs.
Now founders Robbie Rees and Joel Elster have made a new addition to the menu – sauces crafted with controversial CBD oil.
The oil, aka ‘cannabidiol’, is extracted from cannabis plants but contains only trace amounts of the high-giving chemical tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), making it perfectly legal.
It’s classed as a super-food supplement and powerful antioxidant said to promote health and wellbeing.
Robbie, a semi-professional footballer, and Joel, a seasoned hospitality consultant, have teamed up with leading UK brand CBD Armour to launch the dishes.
And Robbie revealed the sauces have proved an instant hit.
He said: “We made a garlic and basil alioli to go with our signature dish, our Green Monster burger, and the CBD sauce went down a treat!
