CBDfx’s Kitchen Classics series is back with three taste-tempting drink recipes infused with our best-selling CBD oil. Today, we’ll learn how to make a frothy CBD Infused Frozen Raspberry Smoothie, great as a health-boosting liquid breakfast or an afternoon treat. Then, we’ll create a healthy CBD Strawberry-Cucumber Infused Drink, low in calories and high in nutrition — and flavour! Lastly, we’ll rock a CBD Hurricane, a delicious CBD take on the legendary cocktail.
First, though, let’s take a look at just what CBD-infused drinks are and why more and more people are experimenting by infusing drinks with wellness-boosting CBD.
The Benefits of a CBD-Infused Drink
The idea behind CBD-infused beverages is quite simple. Take your favourite drink recipe and add to it a drop or two of CBD tincture oil to enhance your experience with the flavour and effects of this potent hemp compound.
There are plenty of benefits to enjoying a CBD-infused drink, which can vary depending on what kind of CBD extract you choose. All CBD oil comes with a variety of health-boosting effects, due to CBD’s interaction with the body’s endocannabinoid system. But there are certain CBD tincture products that are especially designed with wellness in mind. Other CBD products are designed for relaxation, making any CBD-infused cocktail or drink a great lazy afternoon or evening beverage.
Let’s take a quick at our popular CBD oil products, so you can decide which one might work best for your CBD infused drink. Don’t worry, we’ll get to those delicious infused CBD drinks soon!
