If you had to choose two words that conjure up visions of bearded men and barefoot women with unshaven armpits they might be “kombucha” and “hemp”. But they’ve recently come together to make a magical drink with tons of health benefits and we think everyone should be drinking it. GT’s brand created “cannabliss” a CBD kombucha that contains full spectrum CBD.
Don’t worry this CBD kombucha won’t get you high. It doesn’t contain any THC, but it does have a number of benefits. Here are just a few reasons you should be running to get a sip of this draft drink before it sells out.
What is Kombucha?
The most basic definition of kombucha is “fermented sweet tea.” You make it by fermenting sugared black or green tea with yeast and acetic acid bacteria. The fermentation process can take one to two weeks, and the end product is a fizzy beverage with a sour and acidic flavor.
If you want to make kombucha, scoby is needed: This stands for a “symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast.” The scoby appears as a rubbery, disk-shaped blob that forms a new layer and thickens with every batch. It may seem gross, but the appearance of the scoby is a sign that the microorganisms in the beverage are hard at work.
Pain Relief (CBD)
One of the most celebrated health benefits of CBD oil is its analgesic (pain relieving) effects. It’s thought that CBD interacts with receptors in the brain and immune system to reduce inflammation and alleviate pain.
Gut Health (kombucha)
Combat Anxiety (CBD)
While CBD is most commonly used to treat physiological symptoms, there’s a growing body of research that indicates it can also be used in the therapy of a range of mental health conditions, including anxiety.
Lowers Infection Risk (Kombucha)
A type of acid called acetic acid, also found in vinegar, is produced when kombucha is fermented.
A study carried out in 2000 found that kombucha was able to kill microbes and help fight a range of bacteria. This suggests that it may help prevent infections by killing the bacteria that cause them before they are absorbed by the body.
So, what do you think? Have you tried our cannabliss?
