From cocktails, to mocktails to smoothies and more, we’ve got 7 CBD infused drink recipes for summertime chill you’ll want to try.

You Mean Drinking CBD Oil?

If you missed our other CBD infused drink recipes list, you might be wondering... can you drink CBD oil? The answer is a definite yes! Drinking CBD oil is an easy way to add it to your daily routine in an enjoyable way.

With the potential benefits of CBD oil becoming increasingly popular, people are finding all kinds of creative ways to ingest it -- like the CBD drink recipes below.

As always, the effects will be different for each person and it’s important to find what dosage and combination works best for you. 

Do CBD Infused Drinks Work?

Adding a CBD oil tincture to a summertime drink may provide a variety of benefits. For example, drinking an iced CBD infused coffee (yum 😍) to start your day may help give you a morning energy boost while also counteracting the possible negative effects caffeine can have such as increased anxiety.

 

An afternoon iced CBD tea can help you cool down and may provide that little pick-me-up you need to keep taking on your day. For a swanky end to your summer evening, you could also try a CBD cocktail (or mocktail🍹🍸) while you unwind.

If you’re adding CBD to alcoholic beverages, remember to dose low. We always suggest you use no more than 15mg of CBD oil tincture per session. Be aware that’s not 15mg per drink! So if you may have more than one CBD cocktail, be sure to spread the dosage out across all your planned beverages (or stick to using a full dosage in only one drink).
