5 CBD Drinks To Try During Summer To Cool You Down
Whether or not we agree on the whole global warming thing, there’s one fact we can all agree with — summer is hot. Florida heat waves and New York dog days, California squelchers and midsummer rippers; somewhere in America, someone is thirsty. And with the surmounting stresses of modern-day life, there’s never enough time to finish your work and your Netflix obsessions. Any chance to marry what you want and what you need must be seized.
At Balance CBD, we’re endlessly inventing new ways for our customers to support their lives with a daily dose of CBD. When you must guzzle two liters of water to stave off the summer heat, what better way to enjoy CBD than in a beverage?
With our CBD beverage enhancers, Balance CBD has found a new and ingenious way to speed up the onset of our cannabidiol through nanotechnology. We’ve reduced the size of our Nano CBD so that it’s water-soluble. That means it passes through your stomach and liver faster, may help to reduce your stress, ease your inflammation, and curb your insomnia.
Below, we offer you our favorite five beverages that quench your thirst and deliver a potent Nano CBD isolate at the same time. With our help, you’ll be relaxed and refreshed despite the high noon sun’s record-setting rays.
Can CBD Summertime Drinks Get Me High?
No! While we’re still learning the benefits of CBD, it’s remained the muse of the moment because of its non-addictive and non-psychoactive properties. This is not THC, the key compound in cannabis. For hemp-based CBD to be legal, it cannot contain more than .3% THC.
Our Balance CBD tinctures, edibles, and beverages have been third-party tested to ensure they contain no THC. We’re so dead set on this important distinction that we link every product we sell to a lab report so you can double-check for yourself.
Even better, our CBD beverage enhancers and mixers use a Nano CBD isolate. That means we remove the THC and other cannabinoids from the raw extract, leaving you a pure product and experience. The CBD recipes in this article taste amazing and will not cause you to fail or flag a drug test, nor will they alter your normal state of awareness.
Cannabidiol interacts with your body in gentle and helpful ways. You’ll feel a heightened state of awareness rather than an altered consciousness.
5 CBD Drinks to Cool You Down
Citrus Twist Slush
What is it about citrus that refreshes the mind and body? Fresh oranges, lemons, and limes soothe your throat and sweep away the doldrums in this twist to a classic. Add our energy-boosting Nano CBD orange-flavored enhancer into the mix and you’re in for a rejuvenating experience. Combined with ample shade, a lounge chair, and your favorite book and you’ll forget it’s 2 PM on a Tuesday.
1 Pitcher with Ice
1 cup Fresh Orange Juice
1/2 Cup Fresh Lemon Juice
1/2 Cup Fresh Lime Juice
4 Pumps Balance CBD Energy Beverage Enhancer
1. Combine juices and ice into a pitcher.
2. Add the Beverage Enhancer with Nano CBD.
3. Stir and add lime and orange slices. Yum.
Frothy Acai and CBD Lemonade
It’s scientifically proven that ice cream cures those midday summertime heat waves. Okay, maybe not. But why else is there a lineup around the block at every ice cream parlor and Baskin Robbins from late June to early September? In our unique play on the milkshake, we kick up the restorative benefits with our CBD Blueberry Acai beverage enhancer, lemonade, and a not so healthy dose of vanilla ice cream.
1/2c freshly squeezed lemon juice
6 pumps Focus Blueberry Acai CBD Drink Enhancer
2 cups of water
6 cups vanilla ice cream
1. Mix lemon juice, water, and Balance CBD Blueberry Acai Drink Enhancer in a pitcher. Set in the fridge to cool, about an hour.
2. Add the lemonade mixture into a blender along with the vanilla ice cream.
3. Blend until no chunks remain and the drink pours smoothly. Serve immediately.
Berries and Cream CBD Float
Ditch the root beer and enjoy a float that’s full of natural fruit flavor. By using fruit and soda water, you cut the sugar without cutting the flavor. And because our Uplift Strawberry CBD Oil doesn’t rely on sweet syrups for its rich flavor, you can enjoy the ice cream topping sans guilt.
6 cups seltzer
2 cups fresh berries
2 ml Uplift Strawberry CBD Oil
Favorite ice cream (we prefer vanilla bean)
1. Mix seltzer and CBD oil with a wooden spoon, then pour in and crush your berries. Leave in the fridge to cool and emulsify.
2. Pour admixture in 3 glasses, top with 1 scoop ice cream.
Evening Dream Peach & Pom Beet CBD Smoothie
Just because you’re staying cool doesn’t mean you need to indulge in sweet drinks. This healthy smoothy champions the detoxifying power of beets with the natural sweetness of pomegranates and peaches. Because you’re adding Nano CBD to enhance the flavor and boost the mind, you’ll not only stay chilled but feel relaxed, too.
2 beets, roughly chopped
1 cup spinach
1/2 apple, cored
2 cups of water
2 carrots, peeled
4 pumps Peach Nano CBD Drink Enhancer
1. Combine ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. For an added chill, include four to six ice cubes.
The Classic: Iced Coffee with CBD
On the unavoidably hot days, when even the A/C can’t protect you from the sun blaring through your windows, enjoy your caffeine fix on ice. CBD helps to reduce the second cup jitters and provide a leaner and more sustained boost of energy and concentration. For the smoothest iteration of the classic iced coffee, use one part homo milk to one part almond or soy milk.
1 cup whole milk
2 teaspoons sugar or agave syrup
1/2 cup ice
1 cup recently chilled coffee
1ml natural flavor Balance CBD Full Spectrum CBD oil
1. Combine milk, agave syrup, coffee, and CBD oil into a large frosted glass. Stir vigorously.
2. Add ice cubes and top with cinnamon or nutmeg.
