First, what is CBD and what are its benefits? CBD, also known as Cannabidiol Oil or Cannabis Oil, is a non-psychoactive compound found in hemp plants. When taken, whether that be as a CBD oil or a CBD infused drink, it can work to regulate your Endocannabinoid system (ECS), it supports this network of receptors to help your body achieve optimal balance. This may help to aid sleep, focus, reduce stress, pain, inflammation and support your immune system. Helping you find your calm, leaving you more productive, less stressed and more you.
How much CBD should I take? When it comes to CBD, dosage and effects are totally personal. We recommend starting with a dose of around 15MG (which you can find in a single serve of TRIP CBD infused drinks or a few drops of CBD oil). Then work from there, increasing your dosage as and when you need to!
What happens when you mix CBD and alcohol? Mixing CBD and alcohol into a cocktail makes for the perfect way to unwind after a stressful day, the CBD may help with focus and stress relief, helping you make the most of any social occasion or a night in at home!
Although the effects are totally personal, many people find that CBD cocktails help them feel calmer and happier, alleviating some of the more negative feelings of alcohol, so you’re ready to keep the good vibes flowing.
