If all this talk has made you thirsty, you need to keep reading to discover what makes CBD beverages so great and why they’re different from the drinks you see on store shelves. In the end, we’ll give you a few CBD beverage recipes that you can easily make at home. Let’s go drinking!

 

 

What Are CBD Beverages?

A CBD beverage is any beverage that contains CBD. We know you know what a beverage is, so let’s briefly go over what CBD is. Short for cannabidiol, CBD is a cannabinoid, an all-natural compound found in hemp plants.

 

Reputable hemp industry brands like Hollyweed use a safe and clean extraction process to remove CBD from hemp flower. Once obtained, CBD makes various products ranging from edibles to vapes to drinks. CBD is not habit-forming, nor does it produce any side effects when consumed at the right dosage. Beverages that contain CBD provide consumers with an easy and flavorful way to get their daily CBD dose.

 

How Do CBD Beverages Work?

The CBD in these beverages interacts with the receptors of your endocannabinoid system (ECS) to help optimize several biological processes important to your overall homeostasis. Your ECS regulates several key functions such as mood, appetite, digestion, mobility, and rest, to name a few. By supporting your ECS with the consumption of CBD drinks, you help keep your mind and body at their optimum level.

 

Are CBD Beverages Legal?

Yes, CBD beverages are completely legal! The 2018 Farm Bill legalized hemp and hemp-derived products as long as they contain 0.3% or less THC. Any product that contains more than 0.3% THC is considered by federal authorities to be “marijuana” regardless of whether it came from a hemp plant. Like the ones we sell here at Hollyweed, all CBD products available on the market are 100% Farm Bill compliant and contain 0.3% or less THC.

What Are the Benefits & Effects of CBD Beverages?

More than just a tasty drink, CBD beverages offer several benefits to the consumer. As we mentioned above, CBD interacts with your ECS to impart several wellness benefits.

 

Some of the many benefits of CBD beverages include:

  • Easing nervousness
  • Increasing positive thoughts and uplifting mood
  • Promoting calm
  • Encouraging appetite
  • Improving gut health and digestion
  • Easing soreness and reducing discomfort
  • Promoting healthier skin
  • Decreasing joint swelling and puffiness
  • Supporting increased mobility
  • Fostering restful, deeper sleep
  • And much more!

 

CBD is generally very well tolerated and rarely produces any side effects. However, a few minor and temporary side effects may occur when consuming CBD in extremely large amounts. To prevent these effects, you should never exceed your regular dose of CBD or consume more than you can optimally handle.

 

Some of the temporary side effects that may occur when you ingest more CBD than you can handle include:

  • Thirst
  • Upset Stomach
  • Lethargy
  • Drowsiness

 

If you’re a fan of CBD beverages, there’s no need to worry about these side effects. To feel these effects, you would have to drink several gallons of CBD drinks in a single day, which is not advised or physically feasible.

 

What Types of CBD Beverages Are There?

You’ll find an embarrassment of riches when it comes to the types of CBD drinks available for you to enjoy. There’s a CBD drink from just about every beverage category to quench anyone’s thirst and satisfy their tastebuds.

 

Here are some popular beverages infused with CBD:

  • Sparkling Water
  • Energy Drinks
  • Juices
  • Beer
  • Wine
  • Cocktails
  • Tea
  • Coffee
  • Water

 

Are CBD Beverages Easy to Make At Home?

You don’t need to be a mixologist to concoct CBD-infused drinks because they’re very easy to make! Chances are you already have the ingredients you need to make them in your kitchen. However, the most important ingredient you’ll need is a high-quality CBD oil or CBD isolate.

 

CBD Oil & CBD Isolate: The Key To Successful CBD Drinks

If you don’t have these essential ingredients ready, you can purchase them from our shop. We have top-shelf CBD oil and CBD capsules (which contain cannabidiol isolate) to help you make these thirst-quenching beverages. 

 

Although both products contain CBD, there are some distinct differences:

 

  • CBD Capsules: Vegan capsules contain CBD isolate, which is 99%+ CBD. These are considered broad spectrum hemp products because they contain no THC. These capsules also do not contain other hemp-plant cannabinoids, natural terpenes (plant compounds responsible for taste and smell), and flavonoids (plant compounds responsible for pigmentation).
  • CBD Oil (Tincture): A CBD-infused carrier oil (hemp seed oil). Our tincture is a full spectrum hemp product. This means that it contains TCH (0.3% or less), other cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids.

 

Both of these products are great for making CBD drinks. However, if you want optimum benefits of CBD, full spectrum CBD oil is the best option. This is because all hemp plant compounds (CBD, THC, other cannabinoids, flavonoids, and terpenes) synergistically work together to produce a benefit greater than the sum of its parts.

 

Now that you know the nitty-gritty of what types of CBD products you should use when making your drinks, it’s time you made some. Without further ado, here are some easy CBD drink recipes!
