CBD Beer and Holiday Beverages

CBD Hot Chocolate

This can be prepared with or without CBD, aiming for a sweet and minty flavour. Essential is the thorough blending of CBD for even distribution. In haste, opt for milk with pre-made peppermint hot chocolate mix. This recipe serves four.

Ingredients:

  • A quart of your milk choice, coconut milk for added sweetness
  • One-third cup of unsweetened cocoa powder

  • Whipped cream

CBD-Infused Eggnog

A holiday staple, eggnog can be easily blended with CBD. This recipe caters to twelve.

Ingredients:

  • Six large egg yolks
  • Three-quarters cup fine sugar
  • Half a quart of whole or unsweetened non-dairy milk
  • Four cups of heavy cream
  • Twelve doses of resolveCBD’s CBD oil tincture
  • One and a half cups of bourbon
  • One-quarter cup dark rum
  • One cup cognac
  • Nutmeg
  • Whipped cream
  • Optional cinnamon sticks

Instructions:

Beat yolks until thick and pale, integrating sugar gradually. Whisk in milk, cream, and CBD, followed by bourbon, rum, and cognac. If not serving immediately, re-whisk before serving. For a richer texture, add more cream. Serve topped with whipped cream, nutmeg, and a cinnamon stick.

Choosing Flavours For CBD Drinks

Creating a refreshing CBD drink depends on pairing the CBD oil with an appropriate beverage. If your CBD oil is flavoured, select a drink that complements its taste. For example, a mango-flavoured CBD oil would blend harmoniously with pineapple juice or be a delightful addition to a mango smoothie.

On the other hand, if you’re using unflavored CBD oil, it opens up a playground of possibilities to experiment with various mixers to discover your personal preference.

Common choices for mixers include club soda, lemonade, various fruit juices, and iced tea. Begin your concoction by adding just a few drops of CBD oil to your chosen drink, then assess how you feel. Remember, you can always incrementally increase the amount of CBD oil if you desire a stronger effect. The key is to find that perfect balance that suits your taste and wellness needs.

Understanding CBD Beverages

The burgeoning market of CBD-infused drinks claims benefits like relaxation and stress alleviation, enhancing social experiences.

Concerns about CBD’s Psychoactive Effects

Contrary to THC, another constituent of cannabis, CBD does not induce euphoria or an intoxicating effect. Thus, it remains non-psychoactive.

Feel free to add CBD to any of your blended or shaken drinks, ensuring a unique twist to your regular beverages.

CBD in Any Beverage

Adding CBD to your favoured drinks, alcoholic or otherwise, is straightforward. Incorporate the CBD during shaking or blending to ensure uniform distribution. While CBD ingestion via beverages may slightly reduce absorption, moderation in serving size is key. Opt for one or two CBD-infused drinks per meal.
