10 Healthy CBD Tonics and Shots Recipes

CBD, short for cannabidiol, is one of the major phyto-compounds extracted from industrial hemp. CBD has numerous therapeutic positives.

Humans have been consuming hemp derivatives since the dawn of time, but it’s as recently as 2018 that the US government legalized CBD.

As more research on CBD is being carried out, scientists are discovering new CBD benefits, and it has led to the soaring demand for CBD.

At present, many Americans are shifting from OTC and conventional drugs to organic supplements like CBD to manage certain health issues.

CBD may be ingested in a variety of ways; eatables, drinks, tinctures, capsules, topicals, etc. But in this post, we focus on CBD drinks.
