DETROIT (WXYZ) — A restaurant in downtown Detroit is now offering cannabidiol (CBD)-infused smoothies.

For $5 extra, you can get CBD oil in smoothies at ChickP Detroit, located at 110 Clifford St. Although it opened last year, ChickP just started offering the smoothies this week.

CBD oil is a non-intoxicating extract found in hemp that is low in THC.

State Rep. Steve Johnson’s legislation protecting the use of CBD oil derived from hemp in Michigan was signed into law.

“CBD oil derived from hemp doesn’t get you high,” Johnson said. “It contains no more than 0.3 percent Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). But the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs decided last summer to start classifying it the same way they do marijuana, which contains 5 to 35 percent THC.”

The legislation clarifies that CBD oil and other products derived from hemp fall under the definition of industrial hemp, instead of the definition of marijuana.
