For your immediate reference, here are 5 things you need to know about CBD cocktails.

Read on and enjoy (responsibly, of course!)

What are the CBD Cocktails?

With the rise of CBD-infused drinks and edibles, it is not surprising that it has already found its way onto everyone’s favorite happy hour drink: cocktails. As the name implies, these drinks refer to cocktails mixed with some dosage of cannabidiol (CBD), a compound found in cannabis.

The CBD typically comes in two different forms: oil and tincture. When mixing with cocktails, CBD oil floats on top of the drink, making it an ideal topper for people who love to see and smell the oil as they take a sip. It also makes the drink taste earthy and plant-like.

Meanwhile, since CBD tinctures are alcohol-based. This makes them blend with the alcohol seamlessly, thus promising a more integrated taste that can be enjoyed up until the last drop.

Are CBD Cocktails safe to drink?

Unlike THC, the principal psychoactive constituent of cannabis, CBD will not get you “high.” Thus, mixing CBD with alcohol promises no immediate adverse effects. Although there isn’t enough research on how alcohol interacts with CBD yet, many claims that there comes no considerable difference in terms of effects when you drink alcohol with or without CBD.

If you’re a happy drunk, then CBD could make you a happier drunk,” said James Giordano, professor of neurology and biochemistry at Georgetown University Medical Center. “If you’re an angry or violent drunk, the CBD may certainly disinhibit some of that.”

To date, many bars are already offering CBD cocktails as part of their menu, making it readily-available for customers who want to experience an even happier hour with their favorite pals.

What are its possible side effects of CBD Cocktails?

As mentioned earlier, there is still no sufficient record on how alcohol interacts with CBD. However, initial studies related to alcohol and cannabidiol suggest that taking CBD cocktails could grant you a number of positive effects.

For your guide, here are a few you should know:

  • Improved relaxation: With the combined properties of cocktails and CBD, drinkers are expected to experience stronger and longer relaxation time. Since cannabidiol are famous for its calming properties, mixing it with the sedating quality of alcohol increases the feel-good effect of the drink and promises a lighter feeling for the drinker.

On CBD, you’re very chill, very lighthearted, mellow. The alcohol will make that more intense,” Professor Giordano explained.

  • Lower blood alcohol levels: In a study published in the Psychopharmacology journal, researchers have discovered that combining alcohol with CBD could result in significantly lower blood alcohol levels in drinkers.

 

In the study, 10 volunteers were given placebo, CBD and orange juice, alcohol, or CBD and alcohol. Basing on the assessments, the researchers noticed that participants who were given the alcohol-CBD combination showed significantly lower blood alcohol levels.

Seeking for a happier hour this weekend? Embrace a relaxing night ahead and get ready to unwind with the help of CBD cocktails.

Stop by the nearest bar in your area and get a taste of this remarkable drink (responsibly).
