Infuse Your Homemade Beverages With CBD

By now, the medical benefits of regularly ingesting CBD for such things as anxiety, heart, neurological conditions and skin problems, are well known and publicized. This has made CBD readily available in many forms like tinctures, oils, capsules, and even gummies. It is being infused in skincare regimes, wellness productsspa treatments, and pet products, but what about adding CBD to things you enjoy making at home like a latte or cocktail?

We have gathered a few CBD-infused drink recipes from around the web to share with you, but first, a few CBD mixing tips:

  • Know the difference between CBD oils and tinctures. Tinctures are alcohol-based, which means that they will mix well into your drink. Oil tends to separate or sit on top of the drink. Both are great, but they create different effects, so be aware which one the recipe calls for.
  • Know your CBD dosage. If you are unsure of your proper dose, start with 25 mg, and go from there. Don’t double your dosage with two drinks, simply split the dosage if you plan on two, or skip the CBD if you put your entire dose in the first drink.
  • Make sure your CBD is high-quality. Low-quality CBD can contain unhealthy chemicals, pesticides, and heavy metals. Make sure that it is natural, and lab tested for purity and quality.
