Celebrate Father’s Day with Bluebird’s CBD-infused BBQ Sauce

BBQ ribs with CBD

It’s mid-June, which means Father’s Day is just around the corner!

Bluebird knows that many “Best Dad Evers” have earned that title in part because of their role as grill master at the annual family barbecue. Grill Master Dads take care in their craft, ensuring that everyone leaves with full bellies, happy hearts...and maybe a little barbecue sauce dollop stained on their shirts.

This year, Bluebird invites the fathers, grandfathers, and caregivers in our flock to harness their adventurous and innovative spirit and give this CBD-infused barbecue recipe a go.
