Contrary to popular belief, CBD (cannibidiol) will not get you high. What it will do however, is put your mind, body, (and most likely spirit) at ease after a stressful day and we could all use a little more of that. Since CBD oil (and CBD drinks) don't contain any traceable THC, you'll be buzzed... just without the side effects that sometimes go along with lighting up, puff puff pass style. So why even both with this ingredient and extra step in your craft libation game if you can get tipsy the old-fashioned, sans it? Well for starters, it's anti-inflammatory, is proven to lower cortisol (the hormone activated by stress), helps with insomnia, and it offers a sense of anxiety-curing calm, which we'll take any day of the week. Get ready to bust out your cocktail shaker and whip up a batch of these trendy tipples.
