Cannabidiol (CBD) has become increasingly popular over the past few years due to its myriad health and well-benefits. With CBD-infused chocolate bars, oral drops, and drinks amongst the best ways to consume the ingredient, you might be wondering which to go for. To help you decide, here’s our ultimate guide to CBD drinks — they’re tasty, effective, and easy to add to your daily routine.
What Are CBD Drinks?
Drinks containing cannabidiol offer the hg benefits of the cannabis plant without the high. It’s the tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in cannabis that makes you high, and this is removed from the CBD oils and products legally sold in the UK. A reputable CBD company will be able to show you the lab-testing certificate that proves it contains less than 0.2% THC. Here’s ours.
CBD is often consumed as drops, but it’s also now available in many food products, from gummies to chocolate. However, another popular choice is CBD coffees – they’re one of our most popular products.
Consuming CBD in your favourite drink is an easy and enjoyable way to get your daily dose of CBD. Simply brew up a cup of coffee, relax and enjoy.
The History of CBD in the UK
Medical cannabis was made legal in the UK on November 1st 2018. Despite this, it’s still incredibly rare for doctors to prescribe it, so the majority of people who want to take CBD, buy it themselves.
CBD is only legal when it is sold containing less than 0.2% THC; therefore, their product will not contain enough of the psychoactive compound that causes ‘highs’. This is why it is important for retailers to obtain and demonstrate their levels of THC in a lab report.
A recent development has been the FSA’s assessment of CBD for novel food status. Novel foods are foods that have no history of consumption prior to May 1997. Classing CBD as a novel food will mean that the industry is regulated and that only products approved by the FSA will be legal for sale in the UK.
The FSA process is still ongoing: our products are on the UK Food Standards Agency CBD Novel Food Public List, which means our products have passed the validation process and can remain on sale pending the final stages of approval. We are, in fact, the only BRC Certified manufacturer of CBD chocolate on the FSA public list. (BRC is the global standard for food safety.)
How Much CBD Do These Drinks Contain?
Knowing the percentage o your CBD-infused coffee makes it possible for you to control your dosage and intake. Drinking cannabidiol with your daily coffee is a great way to benefit from it.
Vaping or taking CBD oral drops is a quicker way to get cannabidiol into the bloodstream. However, when vaped, it will only stay in your system for around two hours, and oral drops under the tongue only remain for around six to eight hours. In contrast, drinking CBD-infused beverages means the cannabinoids enter your digestive system and stay in your body for longer. You can benefit from them for around 12 hours.
A Rise In Popularity
CBD is an increasingly popular way to supplement a healthy lifestyle, helping you feel calm and focussed and giving your body valuable nutrients. If you buy products with hemp-derived CBD rather than synthetic CBD, you will get the full spectrum of benefits along with the confidence that your CBD came from a natural source. Consuming CBD in delicious products such as chocolate or coffee gives you the benefits of CBD without the CBD taste, which some people don’t like. If the taste bothers you, another option is to take deliciously flavoured CBD drops such as these. You can put our CBD oil in coffee to enhance the flavour of your brew – or simply choose one of our C coffees.
