What are CBD Drinks?
CBD Drinks refer to any beverage that contains or was infused with CBD.
Most of the time CBD Beverages are infused with nano emulsified CBD. This is because CBD extract is usually in oil form, and as you may know: oil and water don’t mix. (See physics classes were definitely useful!) This type of CBD is modified at the molecular level and broken down to make it easier to mix with a water-based liquid.
With this little magical trick, CBD in beverages is also more bioavailable. While it is still broken down through the digestive system and takes a little more time than a sublingual oil, nano emulsified CBD is easier to break down by the body and therefore can reach the bloodstream faster.

Why can it be a fun addition to your Holiday Drinks Menu?
Let’s face it, CBD oils or capsules are not for everyone! Even Gummies are not one-size-fits-all!
That is where CBD beverages enter.
They are so easy to use! You can mix some in your morning drink, or simply mix it with your morning drink! And for those in need of a relaxation boost in the evening, you can mix it in your favorite nighttime drink, there are even CBD infused Teas!
You can make a CBD addition to any of your favorite drinks! By using water-soluble CBD you can add a bit to any drink! Those tinctures are usually unflavored and do not smell anything.
By why would that make most sense during the holidays? The balancing benefits of CBD can be a great asset to keep under your belt at the one time of the year when the balance is completely off the chart.
We eat more, are awake longer, drink a little more … grape juice 😉.
Because CBD helps your body balance mood, sleep, and more, it can be a real asset to help your body bounce back!
