For those of you unfamiliar with our CBD tinctures, this is CBD oil that you can take sublingual or in a drink. Our CBD tinctures come in a small bottle with a dropper; this is so that you are able to monitor how much CBD you are taking. They come in various strengths and flavors so pairing CBD with the right drink is simple to do. There is only 5 ingredients in our bottles so you get the best form of CBD without all the extra additives.
We carry different flavors for you to enjoy that include our Lemon Lime, Cucumber Mint, Pink Grapefruit, Peach Pear, and Orange. Each one can be pared with different foods or drink that add a rich experience.
Use Lower Temperatures
It's important to note that extreme temperatures can make CBD lose its properties which include: flavonoids, terpenes, and additional cannabinoids. The boiling point for CBD can range between 320° - 350° Fahrenheit. This shouldn't be an issue with cold drinks like cocktails, or blended drinks. However, you will want to wait before adding CBD to coffee, tea, hot chocolate, etc. If it's too hot drink, it's too hot to add CBD to it.
Pairing the right CBD
When pairing CBD with a drink you will to make sure it will compliments the flavor. Although Hemp on its own has an Earthy-natural flavor, Tinctures have added Terpenes to better the experience. The Terpenes is what gives the CBD its enjoyable taste. They are naturally extracted from the Hemp plant and range in flavors.
One important thing to remember is that we don't add sugar to our CBD Tinctures. Also, the higher the strength Tincture you use the more Earthy taste you will get. Therefore, we recommend adding additional sugar or sweetener to your drink if you're using a higher strength CBD. This will help you mask the taste if you don't enjoy the natural, Hemp flavor. You don't have to follow this step but it is recommended.
