CBD Cocktails

Going through a tough week? We all have our fair shares when it comes to stress and anxiety. For most people, embarking on a weekend fun night with friends by their sides and cocktails on their hands come as a good option to relieve the stress brought by the long week.

However, would you believe that you could even raise your cocktail gaming into the next level? With the popularity of CBD products in the marketplace, CBD-infused cocktails are also now taking up the hospitality realm by storm.

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).

What You Need to Know About Cannabis Vodka

Cannabis Vodka

With the continually rising popularity of cannabis, more and more infused products are emerging in the market. You can find marijuana-infused chocolates, gummies, sodas and even beers.

Of course, hard liquor will not be left behind when it comes to getting with the current trends. The development of cannabis vodka is getting the attention of enthusiasts and curious individuals alike. If you are one of these people, here’s what you should know about this unique blend.

Is Cannabis Vodka Safe?

Perhaps the most pressing question before consuming cannabis vodka is whether it is safe to take. One important thing to note is that the plant contains a variety of chemical compounds, with cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) taking the lead. When isolated, these two cannabinoids have different effects.

So, when discussing whether is it safe to mix cannabis with alcohol, it is necessary to determine whether you are going to mix both CBD and THC, or only one cannabinoid with alcohol.

According to experts, mixing THC’s euphoric and psychoactive effects with the stimulating and sedating effects of alcohol can be dangerous. This can lead to impaired judgment, motor skills and cognitive functions, which can result in accidents and even death.

On the other hand, CBD stimulates cognition, brings a relaxed feeling and improves your mood. When mixed with alcohol in moderate amounts, drinkers can reduce the negative effects of the beverage because of the medicinal effects of the cannabinoid.

Many Brands Contain Minimal THC

If you are interested in trying out cannabis vodka, you will be glad to know that you can buy a bottle of the Russian drink that is already infused with marijuana. One of your options is Humboldt’s Finest. Developed by Humboldt Distillery, this beverage contains only 0.3% THC which is not enough to give the psychoactive effect of the cannabinoid. According to the distillery’s owner, the drink has the notable herbal taste of the plant.

You can also consider trying out Weedka, which is crafted using natural marijuana terpenes. This gives the drink the natural flavor and aroma of the plant without any of the effects it gives. It does not have any trace of THC, making it easily accessible. When you choose Weedka, you are drinking cannabis oil (without THC, of course) extremely diluted with vodka, giving you an authentic experience.

You Can Make Your Own Cannabis Vodka with CBD Oil

Cannabis Vodka can be expensive, especially as these are special blends. If you are looking for a more budget-friendly alternative, you might want to try to make one using CBD hemp oil. You just need to place a few drops of the oil into a serving of your favorite vodka or vodka-based drink.

Keep in mind that the compound affects individuals differently, so make sure to take it easy. You can start with fewer drops and increase the dosage as you get familiar with the CBD cocktails. This is a great match for CBD edibles such as cookies, brownies and even full-blown dishes!

For adventurous individuals, it is possible to make your own infused drink using buds or leaves. Just make sure to get a strain that has extremely low levels of THC. You only need a double boiler, vodka, cannabis and a thermometer. Simply heat the vodka at the lowest setting, no more than 60C as alcohol can evaporate in high heat. Then place the buds and heat for 2 to 3 hours.

While satisfying your adventurous spirit is a great motivation to try cannabis vodka, safe and responsible consumption is always the best way to go. So, make sure to try this drink and enjoy the unique experience it has to offer while watching out for your health.

For some people, anxiety becomes a huge problem as it triggers physical symptoms like increased heart rate, sweating, trembling, feeling weak and trouble concentrating.

Aside from seeking professional help, you can also take cannabidiol to ease the symptoms and make yourself calm.

How CBD Helps With Anxiety

There are studies and researches that claim the promising ability of cannabis in relieving a generalized anxiety disorder. For instance, a 2010 study found out that cannabidiol revealed changes in blood flow to the regions in the brain linked to feelings of anxiety. Moreover, cannabidiol, which is an active compound in marijuana, reduces symptoms linked to post-traumatic stress and anxiety-provoked sleep disorder in children.

Although more tests are needed to prove the effectiveness of CBD in easing anxiety symptoms, researchers are positive that this compound can be an alternative ‘treatment.’

Why Choose CBD Edibles

Taking CBD edibles is like eating candies and chocolates because these CBD products contain different flavors. It can be in the form of gummy bears, brownies, cakes, candies, chocolates, and more.

Depending on the amount consumed, it can provide just the right effect on a person.

CBD Effects

People who tried cannabidiol for the first time can attest to how effective it is in enhancing sleep, reducing stress levels, and basically improving one’s quality of life.

BevCanna Gains License

BevCanna Enterprises Inc., a cannabis startup company based in Vancouver, British Columbia, was recently awarded the Health Canada Cannabis Research License. The license was awarded only days after the company’s initial success in launching its own line of cannabis beverages to the public.

This is the second license awarded to the company, with the first being awarded earlier in June 2019. Apart from the research licensing, the cannabis firm also attained the Industrial Hemp Cultivation License.

In the company’s press release, BevCanna mentions that the awarded research license allows the firm to proceed with their development and research processes, “such as SOP development, stability testing, sensory evaluation and quality assurance for house brands and white label clients.” The research will be spearheaded by chief commercialization officer of the company, Emma Andrews, alongside the Quality Assurance and Production Team of the company.

The company’s research license award is linked to their study, with research focusing on the “Stability and Homogeneity of Water Soluble Cannabinoid Infusions in Water Based Beverages.” The series of trials will focus on studying the brands launched under the company, namely Anarchist Mountain Beverages and Grüv Beverages.

According to Financial Post, the company’s line of Grüv Beverages focuses on providing the public with cannabis-infused iced tea drinks, with flavors such as ginger mint herbal iced tea and matcha green iced tea taking center stage. The drinks are laced with a 1:1 ratio of THC and CBD to “provide consumers with a mild, yet effective cannabis experiences,” says Andrews. In total, a single serving of 375-ml of cannabis-infused iced tea contains 5 milligrams of THC and 5 milligrams of CBD.

Further testing and research studies will be conducted in the business’ HACCP-certified bottling facility located near Bridesville, British Columbia. The facility houses 40,000 square feet of land, boasting of its spring water aquifer.

Andrews finds the alkaline spring water aquifer essential to creating their line, as stated in the press release. In addition to their facility, Andrews notes that they “have unmatched assets and expertise… that will allow us to achieve a speed to market advantage.”

The facility will focus its efforts towards testing cannabinoid infusion equipment, as well as improving dosages as it eyes widespread expansion and distribution both in the country and in the United States. BevCanna is slated to enter the commercial market come 2020. However, the business intends to introduce its products to the Canadian market this October 2019.
