CBD Mocktail Summer Sippers

During summertime, who doesn’t enjoy pouring something delicious and refreshing at the end of the day? However, sometimes we don’t always love the side effects that come with wine, beer, or a traditional cocktail, which sent us to the kitchen for alternative CBD mocktails. It’s the perfect way to get the benefits of CBD through fresh and healthy CBD drinks. 

Mocktails are genius, aren’t they? Whether you don’t drink alcohol or just need a break, there’s no reason why you should miss out on the fun of crisp beverage just because you don’t want to catch a buzz from alcohol.

There are several helpful ways to consume CBD through a variety of Warfighter Hemp premium CBD products. And if you just don’t like the taste of CBD oil, mixing CBD with a beverage is becoming the most straightforward method of implementing CBD daily.

What Are CBD-Infused Mocktails?

CBD-infused mocktails are exactly what their name entails – drinks containing cannabidiol (CBD). 

Hemp oil is derived from cannabis plants – it is the essential oil produced from the leaves, buds and stems. Once extracted (either mechanical or chemical means), it retains a range of phytocannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids found naturally in hemp oil. 

Warfighter Hemp’s extract comes from USDA Certified Organic hemp and is blended with an organic hemp seed oil carrier. The combo of the hemp seed oil and hemp extract is optimal for absorption into the body. 

Cannabidiol, or CBD for short, is a non-psychoactive phytocannabinoids. Phytocannabinoids are chemical compounds found in hemp plants. There are over 80 different phytocannabinoids.

Research shows significant potential for phytocannabinoids to support health & wellness.* Hemp contains other beneficial phytocannabinoids.

These beneficial responses are what make CBD so appealing to Warfighter Hemp customers. 

Making Different CBD Mocktails and Drinks Recipes

Even though there are CBD drinks you can buy in stores or order at a pub or cafés, nothing will give you more joy than making your own at home since you can easily customize it to your taste. When making these drinks, the key ingredients you will need are Warfighter Hemp’s Full Spectrum or Broad Spectrum CBD Oils.

In this article, we’ve prepared a list of our favorite CBD-infused mocktail drink recipes that you can make in minutes. If you’re just getting started using recipes with CBD oil, we suggest that you make smaller batches at first. You know how it is, aspiring cooks often end up wasting their ingredients because they fail to recreate the recipe. So, make a drink just for you, then make another to share with a friend if it turns out great!

Here is one of our favorite basic CBD mocktail recipe that’s a great all-around drink using fruit you have on-hand:

Basic CBD Infused Drink Recipe:

  • Muddle a few fresh mint leaves and a quarter of a lime in a tall glass.  
  • Add your favorite summer fruit – we suggest blueberries, raspberries, or pineapple. We also love watermelon and peaches. Preferably use fruits that are in season for the best taste.
  • Add soda water and/or tonic water – depending on your tastes.
  • Add a preferred amount of Warfighter Hemp CBD Oil.
  • Add ice to fill glass, mix and enjoy your CBD oil mocktail!

Can You Mix CBD Oil and Alcohol?

This is a fantastic question. If you are taking CBD oil daily, and want a cocktail in the evening, you might be concerned about both interacting and how that will certainly make you feel.

Taking both substances, you may think the balancing effects of CBD can restrict the impact of alcohol. Nevertheless, the reality is, we don’t know precisely how the two interact because there is not enough scientific data.

Okay, But Can you Drink Alcohol with CBD Oil?

To recognize the consolidated impact of CBD oil and also alcohol, we first need to check out both substances individually. CBD has a far more subtle effect since it focuses on an interaction between the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS). This large regulative network expands from head to toe and is responsible for maintaining different organic systems. CBD has also been shown to engage with a variety of molecular targets outside the ECS. To learn more about the Endocannabinoid System, read our blog here.

The connection between CBD oil as well as alcohol has yet to be thoroughly studied. However, there have been handful of preclinical studies to test the effects of CBD plus alcohol on human subjects.** Based on the study, the alcohol impact was the same when consuming it together with CBD oil and without CBD oil. Regrettably, there isn’t sufficient information to tell if cannabidiol can mitigate the risk of any unfavorable effects from consuming alcohol.
