5 Trendy Drinks to Pique Your Interest in CBD Beverages

by | Jan 21, 2020

No, beverages laced with cannabidiol, also known as CBD, will not get you high. That feature is under the purview of cannabis’s other natural compound, tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC. Drinks infused with CBD may offer health benefits, like reducing inflammation or relieving pain, and perhaps help you to relax while you hydrate. With or without the added benefits, here are five alcohol-free, legal and satisfying CBD beverages leading the trend that’s taking over the Northwest.

Rachel’s Ginger Beer White Tea RGB + Dazey CBD

Rachel Marshall is known for her outstanding ginger beer and her foray into CBD sips is no exception. Teaming up with Dazey CBD — another Seattle-based, women-owned company — Rachel’s Ginger Beer (RGB)has made the spicy-sweet white tea ginger beer with CBD a staple at the RGB tasting rooms, where fans can also take it home in growlers.

Boneyard Elixir King Cola

Crafted in Bend, Oregon, this soda is a sure winner for cola lovers looking for a caffeine buzz with their CBD dose. From the beloved Boneyard Brewery, Boneyard Elixir’s King Cola provides a fizzy, familiar-tasting blend of kola nut, citrus, vanilla and spice flavors along with 25 milligrams of CBD and 50 milligrams of caffeine per 12-ounce can. These CBD products have been voted among the best CBD oils for anxiety according to Observer.com research.

Aurora Elixirs Lavender Spice

A heady combination of aromatic lavender, coriander and orange peel, Aurora Elixirs’ Lavender Spice drinks like a high-end soda. It’s made in Portland, and feels equally at home sipped straight from the Instagram-ready bottle, decanted into an aperitif glass or blended with liquor as a cocktail, offering a gentle 15 milligrams of CBD per serving.

Copa CBD Tropical

Copa CBD touts its use of “nano-enhanced” CBD — the company claims the body can more easily and fully absorb this type of CBD. Each can from the Bend-based producers contains 10 milligrams of CBD and only 35 calories, making this sparkling libation light as well as fruity.

Ablis CBD Infusions Cranberry Blood Orange

Another CBD sip out of Bend, Ablis’ Cranberry Blood Orange beverage is lightly carbonated and each 12-ounce bottle contains 25 milligrams of CBD, with non-GMO cranberry and blood orange juice and without preservatives. If you prefer drinking from a can, keep an eye out for the company’s new line of packaged products on sale soon, including a sugar-free Blood Orange flavor that may scratch a similar itch flavor-wise.
