From the chef: A little CBD always helps me get through an intense work day. This quinoa and barley bowl is an easy make-ahead meal that tastes great hot or cold. Bring it all together with colorful ribbons of veggies and shrimp tossed in a sweet miso glaze. Each bite is scented with toasted sesame oil and Chemistry High CBD Tincture. Say goodbye to your sad desk lunch and hello to your new lunchtime pick-me-up.
