Lewis and Schroeder are also fans of Kana, citing this this all-purpose face oil (which contains 50mg of CBD) as a favorite. “It’s formulated with a ton of other powerful botanicals that help to hydrate skin and manage redness,” they explain. “It’s a great addition to both your morning and nighttime routine.”
You get a whopping 100mg of CBD in this honey-infused stick, which is why Lewis and Schroeder cite is as a favorite. “We love the format of this product,” they say. “It’s easy to apply any time of day, and you can use it for anything. From chapped lips, to under eyes that need a little brightening, this stick is soothing, calming, and easy to pop in your bag and use anywhere.” (It was also one of our editors’ picks for the month of October).
CBD (also known as cannabidiol) is a molecule from the cannabis or hemp plant similar to ones naturally produced in our bodies. These are responsible for keeping the body in balance – or to use the technical term – homeostasis.
CBD has become the buzzword of 2020 when it comes to food and drink. There are TV shows dedicated to cooking with CBD, and drinks containing CBD are available to buy in supermarkets, corner shops and in vending machines.
What are the benefits of CBD? And in particular, the benefits of CBD in food and drink?
But, starting from the very beginning, what actually is CBD? And why have CBD products – and in particular – drinks become so popular recently? Oh, and *whispers* will they get you high? Asking for a friend.
“We’ve seen a growing ‘healthy hedonism’ trend towards wellness and ‘mindful drinking’ when socialising. It doesn’t have to mean abstaining from alcohol entirely, but instead is about having the option to create a balanced life and empowering people to make decisions that work for them.
She adds, “In the UK, 65% of consumers aged 25-34 surveyed said they were trying to reduce their alcohol intake, but 61% had not considered low or no alcohol products which shows a huge market growth potential in this category.
Where to buy CBD drinks
On average it will typically take around 20 minutes for you to feel the positive effects of a CBD drink. Dosage and effects are completely personal though, so the dose of CBD in the product and the amount of product consumed will affect the benefits felt and the time it takes for you to feel more calm and balanced!

How long does a CBD drink stay in your system?
As with any drink, CBD drinks do expire and it would always be recommended that you finish off your CBD drinks before the ‘best before’ date detailed on the label. Most products containing elements of CBD typically last between 12 and 24 months before expiring, but an expiry date should be clearly shown on the product.
How long does a CBD drink take to work?
For regular uses of CBD and CBD infused products, finding methods of feeling the benefits in a way that in convenient and enjoyable formats is becoming much easier. CBD drinks, for example, are growing in popularity, whether you grab one after the drink or replace your evening glass of wine with a can they can be a great option. With a wider selection of products and flavours becoming readily available they are becoming more and more popular. Indeed, food and drinks experts Zenith Global predict that the CBD drinks market will reach $1.4 billion by 2023.
