The CBD beverage market is expanding more and more each day. With enthusiasts finding ways to masterfully craft delicious drinks made with cannabidiol (CBD), they’re becoming many consumers’ go-to option. And, with so many different options to choose from, this list (in no particular order) of unique CBD beverages offers a glimpse into the approaches for cannabinoid beverages.

Sweet Reason

Sweet Reason’s hemp-derived CBD-infused sparkling waters aim to help you feel balanced and ready to tackle anything. As a woman, founder Hilary McCain gives one sweet idea behind the brand: “I wanted to create a beverage that I would personally drink all day, every day.” The drinks use CBD isolate at 0.03 mg/ml, or about 10 mg total per bottle.

Bimble

This CBD drink is designed to chill (and be chilled). Made with hemp-derived CBD, Bimble  utilizes only all-natural, domestically-sourced ingredients without the use of preservatives. The carbonated drinks contain 25 mg of broad-spectrum CBD, or 0.07 mg/ml; cannabigerol (CBG) and cannabinol (CBN) were detected in small quantities on their published third-party lab tests.

Cann

Cann has crafted a cannabinoid-infused “social” tonic designed to get you feeling buzzed with a low dose of both delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and CBD. The mission is to offer a (much) healthier choice in place of alcohol. Each 8-ounce can has 2 mg of THC and 4 mg of CBD, or roughly 0.03 mg of cannabinoids per ml.

Queen City Hemp

Queen City Hemp full-spectrum CBD seltzer relies on “proprietary emulsification” to improve cannabinoid solubility and absorption. Drinks are made without sugar or artificial flavors and are vegan and gluten free. Twelve-ounce cans are infused with 7 mg hemp extract (5 mg CBD), or approximately 0.02 mg cannabinoids per ml (CBD and several cannabinoids detected in low quantities on their published third-party lab tests).

DayTrip

DayTrip’s CBD sparkling waters utilize “high-frequency energy” to reduce the size of CBD particles, encapsulate them (the type of carrier is not clear), and improve their absorption. Drinks infuse 10 mg CBD into 12-ounce cans for roughly 0.03 CBD mg/ml. However, an energy drink is available that offers 15 mg CBD and 185 mg caffeine.

Eclipse

Eclipse’s CBD-infused sparkling waters feature natural, plant-based ingredients, including 20 mg of GMP-certified CBD isolate. The cans are 16 ounces, so this adds up to about 0.03 mg CBD per ml.

Mad Tasty

Mad Tasty’s fruity sparkling waters are infused with what they call a “creative” extract. The  beverages are made with emulsified broad-spectrum hemp extract from SōRSE. At 20 mg of hemp extract per can, the consumer can expect about 0.06 mg/ml of CBD, which was the only cannabinoid detected on their published third-party lab tests.
