4 CBD-Infused Drink Recipes That Will Help You Relax

CBD tincture drink

We know, we know, CBD is in everything now. But CBD drinks (or Mocktails) hold a special place in our hearts with their non-alcoholic base and CBD to heal you from the inside out. A natural plant medicine, CBD and other cannabinoids from hemp can help with alleviating anxiety to insomnia with little to no side effects. Hemp CBD products are great for those who want to explore the medicinal uses of cannabis without the psychoactive effects of THC. All cannabinoids function by attaching to receptors in the body, and there are even some cannabinoid compounds that are naturally produced in the human body (breast milk has naturally occurring cannabinoids).

CBD oils and tinctures are the extracted chemical compounds from the hemp plant, refined down into an oil that your body absorbs sublingually (under the tongue). Adding CBD tinctures to your drink is similar to that of adding bitters to a cocktail–the oil tends to bring out certain flavors.

Bioavailability

Your body can only absorb a certain amount of CBD based on each cell’s bioavailability.
