A major fast-food chain in Thailand has been attempting to hop on the cannabis trend with its “Crazy Happy Pizza,” a regular slice of pizza that’s topped with a cannabis leaf

Although it sounds appealing, the product won’t result in a high. CTV News reports that the General Manager of The Pizza Company, Panusak Suensatboon, says the cannabis leaf won’t get anyone high, as it’s just a “market campaign.” He said if customers eat enough of it, they might get sleepy, but that’s all.

Crazy Happy Pizza includes toppings comparable to Thailand’s famous Tom Yum Gai soup flavors but is finished with a cannabis leaf on top. The cheese crust is also infused with cannabis, and the plant is also chopped into the savory dipping sauce.

The price of a 9-inch pizza is 499 baht (about $15), but customers that choose to pick their own are charged with a 100 baht ($3) surcharge for two or three extra cannabis leaves. It’s unique to come out of Thailand, especially since recreational cannabis is still illegal and can land you a fine or jail time.

Although The Pizza Company’s Crazy Happy Pizza seems like it would generate revenue, Panusak says that it’s been quite the opposite. Because cannabis is still recreationally illegal in Thailand, The Pizza Company cannot advertise or sell their Crazy Happy Pizza to those under 12 years old.

Panusak mentioned that when the company ends the sale tomorrow, they will have to toss roughly a fifth of the cannabis leaves they initially obtained. He continues that the market isn’t entirely ready for cannabis products yet, but they wanted to be “the first mover to launch something new and innovative in the market.”

He mentioned his company’s incorporation of the exotic and expensive Tropical Asian fruit on their durian pizza, which is known to have a pungent smell and was another example of the company’s innovative moves. The Pizza Company always tries new ingredients, “anything that is in trend, and we want people to talk about it,” he said.

Dean of Bangkok’s Chulalongkorn Business School, Wilert Priwat, believes that cannabis and marketing can be effective in the preliminary stages, but it’s challenging to use them for long-term success. CTV News reports Wilert adding that people want to “keep themselves trendy and take photos to post on their social media to show they have tried something that was once illegal.”
