CBD-Infused Drink Recipes for Every Occasion

One of the best things about CBD products is their versatility. Though it’s typical to treat them as a supplement and take them with your vitamins, this doesn’t mean you can’t get creative. Whether you’re preparing for a swanky event, holiday party, or just a Thursday night, we have plenty of CBD-infused drink recipes to refresh and inspire you.

Recipes made with tinctures

Why make CBD-infused drinks with tinctures, in particular? Well, you may know this already, but tinctures are alcohol-based, whereas CBD oils are oil-based. Pretty simple? Infusing alcoholic cocktails, or mocktails, if you prefer, with tinctures instead of oil will allow for better blending. However, if you enjoy the earthy bite that natural hemp oil sometimes offers, you’re more than welcome to opt for this instead. Better yet, some people report that adding CBD to their drinks limits or removes their likelihood of getting a hangover.

Here are a few delicious recipes to try:

If you have a water-soluble drink mix that you already love, you can easily use it to craft cocktail and mocktail recipes of your own. Not sure what water-soluble CBD is? Water-soluble CBD is an exciting product that has higher bioavailability. That is, your body is able to absorb CBD both more effectively and more quickly when it’s in this form.

Not only is it important to drink responsibly, but you should consult your doctor about any alcohol use. You should also talk to your doctor before adding CBD to your regimen in any capacity. After all, having necessary conversations can free you up for fun when you really need it, and you can be freer to enjoy it!
