Working up a sweat in the moshpit is sure to give rock fans an appetite.

Ric Hulme and Jay Devine have teamed up to help gig-goers stave off the munchies, with a new venture at the Waterloo Music Bar.

But their hand-made Moshpit Burgers also feature a special ingredient, which they believe is a first in the UK - cannabinoid oil.

Today is an international celebration of the cannabis culture, with Ric and Jay launching their CBD burger, which infuses their cheese sauce with the CBD oil, to help share some of its reported health benefits.

Ric said: “I suffer from anxiety and use CBD oil to treat that and I’ve found it quite effective.

“There is tons of things that the oil can be used for though like treating pain for example.”

Ric, 33, who fronts hiphop outfit Eye The Bomb, and Black Eddy guitarist Jay, 32, formerly a chef at West Coast Rock Cafe and Bootleg Social, are already receiving great reviews from both gig goers and the general trade.

“I have spent six months building the brand and perfecting our Moshpit burger patty,” Ric added. “We make all our patties from scratch ourselves on the day rather than just piling toppings over a bog-standard burger.

“The recipe is 100 per cent my own and the burger really does stand apart from others.”

Moshpit Burgers also boast a vegan Oumph! pulled pork-style burger, thought to be a resort first.

“A large part of the punk community are vegetarian or vegan so it’s great we can provide a burger to meet their needs too,” Ric added.
