MANATEE COUNTY – Oncology Nurse Susan Scherer infuses ice cream with CBD at Heavenly Hash Creamery.
The ice cream company doesn’t have a brick and mortar location yet, but has seven flavors in 30 retail locations.
Heavenly Hash Creamery was created with cancer patients in mind, Scherer says.
The high-fat, high-protein formula helps them keep weight on to go through rough treatments like chemo and radiation.
It does have sugar, but Scherer says the CBD helps lower blood sugar levels, along with reducing inflammation and serving as an antioxidant.
The product has no detected level of THC, the element that makes you high.
