Lubbock’s latest bakery offers varied and vegan options

0

A drive through Lubbock would show various businesses offering CBD and Delta 8. Lubbock’s newest bakery is pushing the trend forward by offering baked goods containing CBD and hemp, along with dozens of options.

Samantha Beach, owner of Texas Sweet Box, has been a pastry chef since 2016 and previously owned a bakery in San Antonio. She also suffers from heart disease and has started using CBD to help, with her doctor’s approval.

These experiences, along with planning for the new store while she had COVID-19 in 2021, led to her latest venture – Texas Sweet Box, a Lubbock bakery with freshly baked goods incorporated with CBD, which opened in 2614 130th St. Suite 68 on July 25.

The products contain CBD or hemp, although they can be made without. Items may also be suitable for vegans and gluten-free or sugar-free. Beach is also in the process of getting Delta 8 for cargo.

“We make everything in house, because I leave nothing to chance,” Beach said. “It can be huge, but I want to have something for everyone. Customers often say we cook like grandmas.”

Mentioning grandmothers, Beach uses her grandmother’s candy recipe, which she can make in different flavors. Beach has also brought back some of its San Antonio flair with 30 flavors of edible cookie dough, which was the former location’s specialty.

“It’s been pretty steady, commercially,” she said. “We have an interest, but I think since cannabis and hemp have a bad reputation for being banned for so long, everyone wants to see what will happen before they get in.”

Beach hopes to combat this perception with educational events. She discussed the science behind cannabinoids, how they can help relieve pain and anxiety, and the difference between CBD, hemp, and Delta 8.

“We’re going to let the public in and learn about CBD and how it reacts to our bodies,” she said. “It’s natural. Hops and hemp plants are part of the same family. I love the science behind it and baking.”

Beach hopes to introduce savory breakfast items, an Italian soda bar, open more locations and has more ideas for later. Texas Sweet Box is also working to have the candies available at local vape stores.

People can follow the bakery on Facebook, TikTok and Instagram.
