CBD has taken the world by storm. These days you can find it in everything from gummies and lotions to coffee beans and chocolates. But there is one product category that seems to be rising and outgrowing all the rest – CBD Beverages. Why you might ask? CBD Beverages is currently one of the most accessible ways to consume CBD.
What is CBD?
CBD is an abbreviated term for cannabidiol, a compound found in hemp and marijuana. Hemp and marijuana are both part of the cannabis family, but the difference is the level of Tetrahydrocannabinol or THC within them. THC is what is found in marijuana and gives you a “high”. Marijuana contains high amounts of THC, while hemp contains very low levels of THC.
CBD is derived from hemp and contains no THC, which means it does not give you a high or alter your state of mind. Recent studies have indicated that CBD may help with migraines, chronic pain, arthritis, epilepsy, and cancer side effects. It has also become increasingly popular to promote relaxation, curb anxiety and lift your mood.
With much research still to be done on this growing product category, Zupan’s Markets has recently introduced a variety of CBD infused beverages to its product lineup. Featuring a number of local producers, Zupan’s currently carries both CBD sparkling waters and non-alcoholic ciders.
