While you’re making these delicious cocktails, it’s important to keep in mind that the efficacy of CBD, when mixed in drinks, is not the same if it would be ingested on its own.
When mixing CBD in drinks, unfortunately, we lose a significant amount of bioavailability to our digestive system. Whereas softgels are meant to go through the digestive system and breakdown at just the right time, oil that’s just swallowed in a drink will not provide you with the relief you would normally experience. If you are looking to feel the full effects of CBD, we recommend taking our Daily Drops or Softgels (after a meal or healthy fat), then sipping on your favorite drink. In addition, if you’re looking to spice up your CBD routine, check out our new seasonal flavored drops: Spiced Bergamot and Cranberry Elderflower   Either way you decide to enjoy these yummy seasonal cocktails, we hope you enjoy them with a spiced cider donut and also a cozy scarf draped around your neck for ultimate calming fall vibes.
