With its fried chicken and doughnut combo, Astro Doughnuts is cashing in on some of America’s favorite comfort foods. Each month, its four standard doughnuts, creme brulee, peanut butter, vanilla, and maple bacon are paired with a special edition doughnut.
This month, Astro Doughnuts has rolled out a CBD doughnut. The birthday cake doughnut’s buttercream frosting contains CBD oil. It won’t get you high — instead, it eases anxiety and joint pain. The doughnut is not sold to minors.
“People put it [CBD] in shakes, take it to relax,” said Elliot Spaisman, co-owner of Astro Doughnuts. “We thought it would be fun to add it to a doughnut and kind of make it more comforting.”
Astro Doughnuts has locations in Washington, D.C., Falls Church, Virginia, and Los Angeles, California.
