If you’re living an active lifestyle or have a high-powered career, then the feeling of being “drained” seems often an understatement. To get your body and mind rejuvenated during the day, a CBD drink works well. CBD drinks are a terrific way to stay hydrated yet at the same time get some essential CBD.
At CBD Supply UK, we provide a range of cannabidiol drinks together with a wide range of CBD vapes, gummies, pastes, and bath bombs.
Each CBD drink is packed full of all-natural ingredients and is available in various mouth-watering flavours.
The Benefits of CBD Drinks
In a nutshell, CBD-infused beverages are regular drinks that are enhanced with CBD.
CBD (cannabidiol) is one of over 100 components of the hemp plant (cannabis sativa) and it's similar to what you produce in your body. The cannabinoid receptors in your body help to maintain the balance of hormones and your immune system. Cannabidiol is an active ingredient in cannabis that doesn't get you high.
When your body is out of balance, you could have issues with insomnia, stress, anxiety, and pain. Supplementing your natural cannabinoids with plant-based CBD helps restore the balance.
Enjoying CBD drinks are a refreshing way to get your dose of essential B vitamins which improves your focus levels. They're not only delicious but low in calories too.
The range of CBD drinks in the UK continues to expand but here's a shortlist of the types of CBD-infused drinks on the market.
Made from natural ingredients and no additional sugar added. Research suggests that CBD products, like sparkling sodas, can help you feel calm.
At CBD Supply UK, we provide a wide range of CBD sodas. Choose between Drink 420, Green Monkey, CBDfx, Trip, and Little Rick ranges. They're available in 3 CBD strengths; 15mg, 20mg, and 32mg.
Tasty flavours like Trip Elderflower & Mint, Trip Peach & Ginger, Drink 420 Sparkling Drink - Elderflower & Lime, and Drink 420 Sparkling Drink - Wildberry provide the right amounts of hydration and your daily CBD fix. It's perfect for beginners who haven't reached the intermediate phase as yet.

CBD sparkling water is now common and many people find this beverage to be top on their list. It's a perfect combination for hydration, low-calorie intake while keeping energised throughout the day.
They're available in 2 ranges, 3 flavours, and in 10mg strength. The CBD drink provides a refreshing and balanced blend of sparkling water with either a Lemon, Mixed Berry, or Lemon & Lime flavour that's just the right amount of cannabidiol for beginners. Also, the flavoured sparkling water is a mouth-watering cover-up for the CBD taste.
These are perfect to get your caffeine fix with added CBD goodness. These CBD coffees are available in 3 flavours and 2 strengths; Cold Brew Coffee Original and Cold Brew Coffee Vanilla come in 10mg CBD strength and Trip Cold Brew Coffee Original in a 15mg CBD strength.
This experiment suggests that CBD coffee may help you remain focused and provide a sense of calm.
CBD sports drink
These are not just for athletes. Whether you have a high-powered career or an overall stressful life, these drinks are perfect for re-energising your mind and body. Yet at the same time, you won't experience an over-energised buzz because CBD leaves you calm, as studies suggest.
Still, CBD sports drinks provide a refreshing experience with all the possible health benefits that CBD could provide.

CBD beverage additives are available in 2 strengths; 80mg CBD and 200mg CBD per bottle. Be sure to calculate how much CBD is in each drop.
What you should ask before you buy CBD drinks
Water-soluble CBD is now used to address the "hempy" taste associated with CBD oil and paste. The process used to dissolve CBD effectively in water is way more complex than "stirring well". That's why many go for premade CBD drinks in the first place.
How much CBD is in the drink?
Most people don't know how much cannabidiol they should consume in a day or even how much should be in a CBD drink. The FSA recommends no more than 70mg of CBD a day but there's no hard rule about how much you should take.
You need to drink CBD that effectively provides a balance between potency and taste. Too little CBD and you're wasting your time. While too much CBD could probably leave you with a bitter taste in your mouth.
What type of CBD is in the beverage?
CBD-infused drinks, like tea, coffee, and sodas (among others) consisted of 3 types: CBD Isolate, full-spectrum, and broad-spectrum.
Deciding which is right for you depends on why you're consuming CBD drinks in the first place.
Full-spectrum CBD contains all the components found in the hemp plant including small amounts of THC.
Broad-spectrum CBD has other components of hemp but most (if not all) traces of THC are removed. On the other hand, CBD isolate is pure with no cannabis components. So, it's just CBD and is THC-free.
If you don't mind a CBD drink with a little THC, a full-spectrum is fine. But for those who want to play it safe, then CBD isolate is your best bet.
Somewhere in the middle, you have a broad-spectrum CBD. It potentially provides more benefits than isolate but without the effects of THC.
Are there other ingredients in a CBD drink?
There are 2 main reasons you should be asking this question. First, flavour matters. Unless you're fond of CBD's taste, a sweetener or other enhancer allows you to enjoy your beverage.
Then secondly, it depends on the results you're looking for from a CBD drink. For example, you may want to know how much alcohol is in the CBD-infused beverage. You may also want to know how much caffeine is in CBD-infused coffee or tea.
How much do CBD drinks cost?
Depending on the type of CBD drinks you're buying it could cost between £2 - £15 for a single CBD drink. But, you can buy in bulk and this could be about £22 for a pack of 12, and between £53 - £64 for a pack of 24.
Have the CBD drinks been third-party lab tested?
When the FSA declared CBD drinks a novel food, they responded to the influx of poor-quality CBD products on the market. Independent labs test the levels of THC, whether the CBD is fit for human consumption, and that the ingredients are what it ways on the label.
What are CBD drinks good for?
CBD drinks are perfect to enjoy on the go. A growing number of studies suggests that CBD helps with sleep, stress, moods, and skin conditions. In fact, CBD may help with inflammation and pain. Enjoying a refreshing, low-calorie CBD sparkling water is both good for hydration and your daily dose of cannabidiol.
Many people struggle to fall asleep because of daily pressures, but someone who drinks CBD could benefit by reducing stress and anxiety that causes insomnia. The need for effective natural remedies of CBD drinks has never been greater.
Do drinks infused with CBD work well?
The most famous cannabinoid is THC which is the one that gets you "high". But, drinks infused with CBD are not like THC. Still, many are sceptical about its effectiveness. Research suggests that this cannabinoid has several benefits.
CBD is literally mixing oil and water. CBD is easily combined with lotions, creams, balms, and other oils but it certainly isn't easy to mix with water-based beverages. Oral ingestion through tinctures is a common way to consume CBD. But, you can't just swallow it as the oil needs to be absorbed sublingually by the mucous membranes under your tongue. This makes sure that your body absorbs the oil properly.
CBD drinks are a better option because it's perceived as an improvement of the tincture method.
Without fusing CBD and water, the bioavailability remains low. So, you won't receive all the goodness that the best CBD has to offer if CBD oil isn't effectively mixed with water.
Are CBD-infused drinks legal?
CBD is legal in the UK but on the other hand, THC is not. Even though both (CBD and THC) comes from the cannabis sativa plant, they do affect you in different ways. For one, CBD is non-intoxicating and provides all the benefits listed above. But, THC is listed as a controlled substance in the UK because it makes you "high". Any CBD product containing large amounts (more than 0.2%) THC is illegal.
CBD drinks are not psychoactive
Hemp-derived CBD is not psychoactive because THC is the ingredient in marijuana that get you "high". On the other hand, CBD is a non-intoxicating ingredient in marijuana. When someone drinks CBD, it may lead to mental and physical wellbeing.
Think of CBD as THC's straight-edge cousin.
Does CBD raise your blood pressure?
Researchers suggest that a single dose of CBD (even in sparkling beverages) could have health benefits by lowering your blood pressure caused by stress.
Can you take too much cannabidiol?
When you drink CBD, you'd need to take between 0.5mg/kg/day - 20mg/kg/ day to have positive effects. Even at a 20mg dose, you'd need to spread the doses over 2 sessions.
