What if there were a rescue drink that didn't contain excess sugar and alcohol and also
made you feel calm and focused? Beverages infused with CBD
— or cannabidiol, the cannabis compound that won't get you high but may have therapeutic benefits — are being praised as a way to treat stress, body pain, and insomnia. Here are seven hemp-derived CBD beverages, from cold brew to sparkling water
. Grab them online or in select stores.
Queen City Hemp CBD Seltzer ($4):
These Blood Orange, Guava, Passion Fruit, and Lemon Lavender seltzers contain just 5 milligrams of CBD per serving, making them an approachable first sip for anyone obsessed with sparkling water and new to CBD.
Cuvée Coffee Nitro Hemp Oil Cold Brew ($4):
Drink Austin-based Cuvée, boosted with 10 milligrams of CBD per can, for a dose of low-stress productivity. You can find it at select Safeway stores.
Recess CBD + Adaptogen Sparkling Water ($30/6):
This very 2018 drink combines the three highly hip worlds of sparkling water, CBD, and adaptogens, which are herbs that help us adapt to stress. Sip on Recess in fizzy Blackberry Chai, Peach Ginger, and Pomegranate Hibiscus flavors, each with 10 milligrams of CBD per can.
Mary Joe CBD-Infused Cold Brew Coffee ($64/8):
Combine the perk-up benefits of caffeine with the chill-out capabilities of 15 milligrams of CBD, and you get Mary Joe coffee, a full-bodied beverage that's ideal in the morning or as an afternoon pick-me-up.
VYBES Mind + Body Function ($96/12):
VYBES is sold at just about every trendy hotel, restaurant, and cafe in Los Angeles (and, luckily, online), and it's not hard to see why. With 15 milligrams of hemp-derived CBD, organic ingredients, and flavors like Blueberry Mint and Strawberry Lavender, it tastes like LA in a bottle.
Sprig CBD-Infused Sparkling Beverages ($50/12):
Sprig's zero-sugar sparkling fruit sodas and teas are infused with 20 milligrams of Colorado hemp-derived CBD. Like La Croix, they have a light and fruity flavor that tastes lovely solo or mixed with something stronger.
Kickback CBD Cold Brew ($99/12):
This brand's dairy-free coffees and teas come in matcha, date, and other tasty blends (all 20 milligrams of CBD per serving), so you can achieve what Kickback calls a "functional chill" no matter what your flavor preferences are.
Sweet Reason ($8):
CBD can be prone to tasting bitter and weed-like, which is why Sweet Reason labored over finding a tasteless CBD that's water-soluble for maximum bioavailability (absorbability). 7 milligrams of C0-2 extracted Colorado CBD fill each of these calorie-free seltzers flavored with sophisticated options like Cucumber-Mint and Strawberry-Lavender.
