What is CBD?


CBD is one of the many cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. What makes it popular is its non- psychoactive properties. The reason being that this cannabinoid is extracted from the stems and large leaves of specific strains of cannabis, while cannabis buds, which contain high concentrations of the euphoria-producing THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), are not used for making CBD. In many parts of the United States, CBD is considered perfectly legal and many health food enthusiasts now consider it to be a superfood, since its extract, namely, CBD oil, can be seamlessly combined with the daily meals and drinks.

These days, indoor growing is the most common way to grow the cannabis plant, due to obvious advantages like controllable flowering time, and protection of the plant against diseases and theft. If you are considering the indoor growing of cannabis, make it a point to get a list of some indoor cannabis seeds which are most popular in this context.

What is CBD oil?


CBD oil is made by extracting CBD from the cannabis plant, then diluting it with a carrier oil (also known as base oil, used to dilute essential oils) like coconut or hemp seed oil. CBD oil is gaining huge popularity in the health and wellness world, with some scientific studies confirming it may help cure several illnesses like chronic pain and anxiety, among others. Due to the overwhelming number of Floridians supporting medical cannabis or medical marijuana, Florida marijuana doctors have grown immensely in numbers.

What are CBD infused cocktails?


A CBD infused cocktail is a wonderful combination of CBD, a  miracle antioxidant with a possibly inflammatory substance like alcohol. This is indeed the most cutting-edge innovation that the craft drink industry has seen in some time. A craft beverage is traditionally and independently produced in small batches, i.e. 6 million or fewer barrels annually and which is flavored with innovative ingredients as well as fermentation.

CBD is often included in two different forms - tincture and oil. CBD in oil form is used as a topper for cocktails because the varying densities of the cocktail liquids make the oil float. Tinctures, on the other hand, are alcohol-based. So they blend very easily with cocktails, making CBD less obvious to the eye. Such tincture-based cocktails are consumed completely, and CBD oil remnants are found at the bottom of the glass once a cocktail is finished.

According to Miami marijuana doctors, CBD acts as a stress and anxiety reliever, which creates improved feelings of well being. Also, CBD has been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties. A cocktail, being a popular choice to unwind, incorporating CBD could be the ideal way to rejuvenate after a long and tiring week. Detailed patterns and the strong aroma of CBD can be enjoyed by drinking a CBD infused cocktail, whilst still receiving the medical benefits of CBD. Some of the common words used to describe the flavor of CBD are grassy, herby, earthy and bitter. Its texture and flavor maybe even comparable to an extra-virgin olive oil (has an acidity level of less than 0.8%) made in a non-mechanized way.  Due to their growing popularity, several bars and restaurants in the US now offer CBD infused cocktails, thus helping create a positive image of CBD.

Here are 5 surprising benefits of CBD infused cocktails

  • Addition of CBD greatly enhances the flavor of a cocktail and adds a mood-enhancing effect to the drink, while actually lowering your blood alcohol content. CBD infused cocktails alleviate stress and depression and help prevent hangovers on the next day. Such unique features of CBD cocktails provide an equally unique feature to the bar selling it!
  • An interesting benefit of CBD cocktails is that they create a new conversation at the bar. It excites both the bar staff and customers to speak about cannabis and CBD.
  • CBD cocktails completely cure several ailments such as inflammation and muscle pain. These are also used to soothe discomfort related to cancer and epilepsy.
  • CBD cocktails can boost cardiovascular health and lower the incidence of diabetes. 
  • Adding CBD to cocktails helps remove social anxiety and improve on public speaking skills. Generally, downing an ordinary cocktail can trigger immediate anxiety-like symptoms due to dehydration. A CBD cocktail reduces dehydration considerably.

Cocktails infused with CBD are sold in the states where the drug is either totally legalized or decriminalized.  Beer is one alcoholic drink that is most often given CBD experiments because the terpenes in cannabis provide different aromas and tastes. Some breweries have CBD beer available at select locations in the US.
