West Coast Ventures Group (WCVC), which owns fast-casual dining concept Illegal Burger, has signed an agreement with US-based Biolog to conduct a cannabis infusion technology trial.
Recently, WCVC’s Illegal Burger and AmeriCanna Café announced a cannabis-themed restaurant joint venture.
The cannabis infusion technology trial will be conducted in conjunction with the opening of the restaurant.
WCVC CEO Jim Nixon said: “We are excited about this upcoming trial and we hope to implement this technology across all of our properties.
“The Biolog products will enable us to infuse our foods with cannabidiol, which is very popular right now and will be of great interest to our customers. We expect a very positive response to WCVC being the first culinary group to use CannaStix.”
WCVC will use only the cannabidiol (CBD) versions of the CannaStix product line from Biolog for the trial, however, both companies have agreed to explore options for the distribution of all Biolog’s products in Colorado.
CannaStix products are seasonings, spice and flavourings that can be inserted as a solid mass to enhance the taste of food. They also have the ability to infuse any cooked food with cannabinoids.
Biolog uses a unique process to completely mask the usual cannabis taste profile as well as increase the bioavailability of ingested CBD.
Biolog also plans to launch a series of cannabinoid-infused products for both the food and beverages markets over the coming weeks.
West Coast Ventures Group develops, owns and operates two restaurant concepts including Illegal Burger and El Señor Sol full-service Mexican restaurant in the US.
