10 Amazing CBD Infused Cocktails Recipes

You must be familiar with the health supplement CBD. CBD is a cannabinoid present in both cannabis and marijuana plants but is typically extracted from the hemp plant.

Although both plants belong to the cannabis family, their traits are different. Marijuana typically triggers a mental high but the hemp plant doesn’t trigger any mental high.

Research on CBD is still young, but borrowing from anecdotal evidence, CBD has been suggested to possess a wide range of benefits.

Some of these benefits include relieving stress, pain, anxiety, and inflammation, as well as supercharging different physiological activities.

CBD is versatile and may be ingested in different forms. One of the popular CBD drinks is cocktails. In this post, we share amazing recipes for preparing CBD cocktails.
