CBD infused drinks: everything you need to know …
As we approach the hottest time of the year, everyone is looking for new ways to quench their thirst. And one of the fastest growing segments of the beverage industry in recent times has been CBD infused drinks.
But what are CBD infused drinks? What are the benefits? What do they taste like? Is it better to buy them or make them yourself? Read on to find the answers to all of these questions and check out the next line of CBD drink mixes from cbdMD!
What are CBD infused drinks?
CBD infused drinks can be any drink that contains cannabidiol, or CBD. But the brewing methods are not always the same.
Most of the CBD products you come across on the market are made with CBD oil, in which the CBD is in a medium of a kind of vegetable oil. cbdMD CBD tincturesuse MCT oil, for example. This is because, in its pure form, CBD extract is a fat soluble crystal, so dissolving it in fat makes it viable for human consumption.
However, the use of oil in drinks has obvious drawbacks. If you have ever had a drink that contains a fatty substance, such as coffee with milkor a pina colada, then adding a few drops of the oil is no problem. But in a water-based drink like juice, soda, seltzer water, wine, etc., the oil will eventually float on top of the liquid.
Fortunately, scientific ingenuity has worked hard on the problem.
Water soluble CBD
Making a water-soluble form of CBD is difficult because CBD is not naturally water soluble. But there are ways around it. cbdMD uses nano-encapsulation technology, in which each CBD molecule is enclosed in a food-grade shell whose inner surface is favorable for fat-soluble materials (like CBD). And the outer surface allows the whole to dissolve in water.
Where exactly does this high-tech substance come from? the bark of soapsouth american tree, Quillaja saponaria. If you think about it, that makes sense – soap is a substance that breaks down oils and is also soluble in water. If the soap in your drink seems strange to you, rest assured that it is not the same substance as most commercial soaps and is often used as a foaming agent in drinks.
What are the benefits of CBD infused drinks?
The benefits of CBD drinks are similar to Benefits of CBDin general, at least when taken internally. Ingesting CBD can promote whole body wellness in a variety of ways that depend on individual needs and responses, but some of the most common reasons people take it include:
- Maintain a sense of calm
- Promote relaxation
- Helps in recovery after exercise
- Improve the quality of sleep
- Manage minor discomforts
Taking CBD as a drink instead of tinctures, capsules, or candy is largely a matter of preference. In fact, they don’t really need to be opposed – you can have a regular diet of tinctures or capsules and add drinks or gummies for flavor, or vary the delivery method per day for the sake of convenience. variety.
Conversely, a CBD drink can be more useful if it is part of your daily routine. If you religiously feed a cup of coffee every morning, you can make one CBD coffee. Or, if you always relax with a cup of tea in the evening, you can prepare CBD teatoo much. It all depends on what works for you.
The main thing you need to keep in mind is that you maintain a consistent daily basis of consuming CBD. CBD can stay in your system for days or even weeks, so you can’t know exactly how a given amount is going to affect you until you’ve taken it for a while. If you are still not getting the results you want, you can gradually adjust your intake.
How do CBD drinks taste?
CBD on its own doesn’t have a lot of flavor. Any other aroma in a CBD product ends up overwhelming it. So you don’t have to worry about a CBD drink tasting “hemp” unless it’s actually advertised as such. The distinct smell and flavor of whole cannabis comes from a range of substances found in the plant.
Should you buy CBD drinks or make yourself?
Again, it’s a matter of preference. Making your own CBD drinks gives you more control over the ingredients, which is important if you have food allergies or just a fussy palate. But it’s also true that unless you master nanoencapsulation technology in your home lab, you’re bound to use some form of CBD oil in your homemade recipes.
This gives you flexibility in that you can get almost flavorless CBD oils, but you still have the oil and water problem. Some people don’t really care because they maybe only have half a teaspoon of oil floating around, but if that bothers you, you might prefer another way to include CBD in your favorite drinks.
Buying pre-made drinks means you can get fat-free CBD drinks, along with other ingredients that might not be readily available. And they can’t be beaten for convenience. But of course you have less flexibility to customize the ingredients.
An intermediate option is to get a water-soluble CBD drink mix, which gives us the opportunity for shameless self-promotion.
