    How Many Types of CBD Drinks Are There?

    CBD can be infused in different products, including drinks. Therefore, you can enjoy your CBD by sipping the beverage of your choice. CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid receptors to relieve pain, improve sleep, and alleviate mental disorders. This article will explain more about CBD drinks, their number, and their effects.

    People have different self-care routines. Many believe in natural products to avoid using chemicals that affect the body by causing diverse health conditions. People achieve this by infusing CBD into their daily routines. CBD is a compound derived from cannabis and hemp, and the hype around the compound is increasing daily. The compound is widely used since it is associated with medical and therapeutic effects on the body. For example, pain relief, muscle recovery, mental disorder alleviation, and prevention of insomnia. CBD made its way into the market after the legalization of hemp-derived cannabidiol by the Food and Drug Administration. It is infused in different products, including gummies, skin care products, and foods and beverages.

    CBD Drinks: What Are They?

    CBD drinks are popular because they are delicious and easily customizable. You can benefit from CBD through your favorite shippable beverage. Also, the drinks come in different flavors and tastes, allowing you to consume your preferred choice.

    CBD is the second most known cannabinoid derived from cannabis and hemp. The compound is associated with various health benefits, including pain relief, reducing anxiety and stress, and improving gastrointestinal health. Since it has little scientific backup, CBD is not legally approved for medical use in several states. However, it is appreciated by most for its effect based on consumer reviews backed up by much research. However, the FDA has only approved Epidiolex, a CBD drug used to treat rare forms of epilepsy. According to Gray & Whalley (2020), the two rare forms of epilepsy majorly occur in younger children. Research shows that patients who use CBD (Epidiolex) exhibit a significantly decreased number of seizures compared to a placebo.

    CBD drinks are infused with different types of CBD, such as full spectrum CBD, broad-spectrum CBD, and CBD isolates. The three differ based on the compounds they contain from the plant. The full spectrum CBD is also called the whole plant CBD since it contains all plant compounds, including THC. THC is the most common marijuana compound due to its psychoactive effect; it can alter the user's mental state. The compounds are less processed to retain more components to obtain full spectrum CBD.

    The broad spectrum has different compounds from the plant, such as terpenes, all cannabinoids, and flavonoids except THC. CBD isolate is the purest form of CBD since it does not contain additional compounds from the plant.

    How CBD Drinks Work

    CBD is a medicinal compound that has made its way on beverage shelves in the form of drinks, for example, sodas, seltzers, beverages, cocktails, and iced teas. They are not new, but they have been among trendy CBD products since the legalization of the compound. These drinks are made of cannabidiol oil extracted from the plant's leaves, resin, and flowers.

    The human body has endocannabinoid receptors, which are believed to be similar to the cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. Therefore, CBD is believed to interact with the cannabinoid receptors to provide any form of relief. The receptors are found in various body parts such as the brain, spine, skin, mouth, and nerves.

    Why You Should Consider Using CBD Drinks

    Using CBD drinks gives you an additional advantage of benefiting from the compound since it has different health benefits, including;

    Pain Relief

    Pain can be a traumatizing experience and affects your daily activities, decreasing productivity. Among the major reasons for the wide spread of CBD is its ability to ease different acute and chronic pain forms. Body exercises are good for health and maintaining body shape, and intensive exercises can cause muscle pain, joint aches, and nerve pains. According to Liner-Melville et al. (2020), CBD can relieve sciatic nerve pain, mainly experienced by athletes due to prolonged exercises. The sciatic nerve is the longest in the human body, running from the lower back to the toes. Its pain is triggered by sliding the disc and resting on the nerve, causing too much pain. Most people experiencing pain tend to use opioids which can cause addiction. Fortunately, CBD is an organic alternative with minimal side effects.

    Alleviating Mental Stress Disorders

    Statistics show that the number of people having mental disorders, including anxiety, stress, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorders, is increasing daily. Therefore, many people need a natural remedy to alleviate mental stress disorders. Furthermore, most serious health conditions, such as health attacks and stroke, result from unmanaged mental disorders. According to García-Gutiérrez et al. (2020), CBD can help alleviate mental disorders such as anxiety, stress, and depression because it has a relaxing and soothing effect on the boy and the mind.

    Improve Sleep

    A healthy diet, body exercises, and quality sleep are among the things to consider for a healthy lifestyle. However, with the technological lifestyle habits developed, people tend to focus so much on their jobs, forgetting to get quality sleep.

    Your body and mind must re-energize adequately for proper and efficient body functioning. However, internal and external factors can affect your sleep, for example, a noisy background, taking too much coffee before heading to bed, and overexposure to blue light at night. Therefore, scientists suggested avoiding mobile phones and television for about four hours before bed. Health problems can also cause sleep issues, for example, pain and mental disturbance. Many sleeping pills have diverse side effects on people. According to Teitelbaum (2019), CBD can improve sleep quality by reducing anxiety and stress.

    Conclusion

    CBD drinks are popular because they are tasty and easy to prepare. Furthermore, they can be purchased from various local and online stores. CBD drinks are usually infused with full spectrum, broad spectrum, and CBD isolates. The full spectrum has all the plant's compounds, including THC; the broad spectrum does not have THC but has all other components, while CBD isolates contain cannabidiol only. CBD drinks alleviate stress and anxiety, ease pain, and improve sleep.

    While purchasing CBD drinks, it is important to read the customer reviews and the product label to confirm that the ingredients are not allergic. Furthermore, it is important to ascertain whether the product has undergone intensive independent third-party testing. Also, consult your doctor on the right CBD dosage to consume.
