Drinks with cannabidiol (CBD) will not give you a buzz. Studies have shown, however, that CBD offers a gang of health benefits, from stress relief to reduced anxiety, nausea relief, decreased muscle and joint pain, improved sleep, and even reduced inflammation and acne. Yes! Sign me up!
Here is a quote from a recent article in the Washington Post:
“We are going to see an explosion in the functional beverage category, from beverages that contain melatonin-rich ingredients to help you sleep, to shelf-stable kombucha and even hard kombucha (which contains alcohol),” says Gorin.
One soda company has created a nighttime noncarbonated beverage to help facilitate a restful sleep during these stressful times. The beverage contains L-theanine, the same amino acid that’s found in tea, and is said to promote relaxation. Where legal, you’ll also find beverages with added CBD oil to reduce anxiety and promote restfulness. And watch for even more fermented kombucha drinks. These brews are known for containing beneficial probiotics, which are part of a strong immune system."
