Col’Cacchio have launched the first ever Cannabis pizza range in South Africa. They are doing this in partnership with Africanpure (one of Africa’s leading CBD brands). The range will be available at selected Col’Cacchio restaurants from today (the 25th of June 2019)
It’s important to realize that Cannabidiol (CBD) can now be legally purchased in SA. This is thanks to a landmark announcement in recent weeks by the Department of Health. Col’Cacchio and Africanpure have wasted no time working non-stop behind the scenes to get ahead of the Cannabis story in SA.

In case you did not know, Col’Cacchio was founded in 1992 by Michael Terespolsky and Kinga Baranowska. The Italian inspired franchise has 37 restaurants across South Africa and Namibia.
They continue to cement their presence as one of the most innovative restaurant brands in SA. Healthy dining is the key focus for their offering. The brand was one of the first to introduce gluten free, low calorie, banting / carb-conscious and vegan alternatives to their menu. Now they will be the first restaurant brand to have a Cannabis offering.
The Col’Cacchio menu will feature two gourmet Cannabis inspired pizzas. The Green Goddess will retail for R125 and the Not-So-Plain Mary Jane will retail for R140.
The two iconic pizzas will be drizzled with Africanpure CBD oil. The oil contains no THC or synthetic chemicals. It’s absolutely safe to enjoy. Customers will also be able to add CBD oil to any other dish on the Col’Cacchio menu at an additional cost of R25.
