Across the nation, CBD-infused drinks are flying off the shelves of health food stores and cafes. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-hallucinogenic compound found in cannabis plants. Hemp, a cultivated variety of cannabis, is the primary source of CBD for manufacturers and consumers mainly because it contains very little tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the compound that gets users high. For people looking for an alternative to their morning cup of coffee or sugar-laden soda, these CBD-infused beverages are flavorful and functional.
For CBD users who are on-the-go, Oleo makes caffeine-free, single-serve powder mixes infused with CBD. These lightly sweetened mixes come in multiple flavors including coconut water, passion fruit, raspberry, and tangerine. The passion fruit, raspberry, and tangerine flavors are rooibos mix extract teas that are naturally flavored. Each mix contains 25 mg of CBD.
Dirty Lemon makes dietary supplement-infused drinks in turmeric, collage, charcoal, matcha, ginseng, sleep, rose, and CBD formulas.

The drink also contains pink Himalayan sea salt for electrolytes and L-theanine (found in tea) to improve cognition, alertness, and tranquility.

The CBD-infused beverage trend is here to stay.

States have no clear plan of enforcing these rules. That’s good news for people who want a relaxing experience paired with their drinks.
