At the design luminosity of 1034 cm–2 s–1, about 106 pairs are expected to be produced every second at the Large Hadron Collider. With such huge statistics and the precise tracking of the CMS detector B mesons can be investigated for CP violation, mixing and rare decays. The trigger, however, cannot retain all events for a later selection of exclusive B decays. A dedicated trigger strategy, which uses tracking immediately after the first trigger stage, is presented and results on few important benchmark channels are given.
