MORE CBD COCKTAILS RECIPES FROM THE CBDWORLDMALL KITCHEN
CBD is everywhere these days. You can find it in bottled water, self-care products, food, even cocktails — but CBD-infused anything comes at a price. That’s why it’s best to learn how to make your own CBD drinks when you’re chilling at the house!
Let’s cover some of the basics, so you know exactly what to expect when you decide to work on your CBD mixology skills.
WHAT IS CBD?
CBD stands for cannabidiol. It comes from the cannabis hemp plant and provides a wide range of therapeutic benefits that many have come to appreciate and look forward to after a long day. CBD is capable of such incredible benefits because the hemp plant contains over 100 different types of cannabinoids, and they all possess their own impressive skill set and effects. Most importantly, some cannabinoids (like CBD) don’t have any psychoactive effects. This is perfect for those who want the calming, soothing effects without feeling “high.”
Still, most people want to know why CBD cocktails? What’s the benefit of adding high-quality cannabinoids to my favorite adult beverage? We’re glad you asked.
CBD COCKTAILS BENEFITS
There are many ways to take advantage of the benefits of CBD, but CBD cocktails are a great way to add CBD to your day and liven things up in the process. CBD cocktails are fun, easy to make, and are great conversation starters for any gathering or party (just make sure your guests know they’re CBD-infused!).
This is also an excellent approach for those just getting acquainted with CBD, since all you need to do is add a couple of drops of your favorite CBD tincture oil. One of the most significant benefits of CBD is that it gives your after-work cocktail an added “chill” factor!
Wondering which CBD product you should use to make your first round of CBD cocktails? Here are our top picks for CBD cocktails, along with some tasty recipes.
WHAT KIND OF CBD PRODUCTS MAKE THE BEST CBD-INFUSED COCKTAILS?
When you’re ready to test your CBD mixology skills, you’ll need to make sure you have the right tools on deck! The cool thing about CBD cocktails is that you can use just about any CBD tincture or concentrated drink to create your beverage. However, you want to make sure you know what kind of taste your tincture has, so you pair it with the right type of flavors.
Let’s take a look at some of our favorite tinctures and some drink recipes to pair them with.

OKAY, BUT HOW MUCH CBD DO I USE?
One of the biggest questions people have about making CBD cocktails is how much CBD to put in the drinks. This greatly depends on your experience level with cannabinoids. If you’re new to CBD, you want to take things slow and keep track of your serving amount.
You still want to monitor your intake if you have experience, but you have a little more wiggle room because you understand serving amounts, effects, and other essential aspects of CBD. To be safe, check the recommended serving size on your product packaging and adhere to that recommendation.
