During the warmer months, mixing up a thirst-quenching tropical drink is a fantastic way to keep your palate refreshed while enjoying endless days of sunshine. If you're a fan of coconut and pineapple, these tasty fruits can be blended together to create the perfect cocktail: the piña colada. While alcohol can be dehydrating, there are other creative ways to enhance this classic summer drink. Skip the booze and create a CBD colada!
This CBD colada is smooth, creamy, and delicious. It's also easy to make with just fresh-cut pineapple, pineapple juice, coconut, fresh-squeezed lime juice, and hemp-derived CBD. Because this drink contains zero alcohol, it has fewer calories than the standard piña colada, plus it won't leave you with a hangover. Cheers to that!
If you're new to mixing CBD into blended drinks, don't worry — it's incredibly simple. As long as you have your favorite unflavored CBD tincture on hand, simply add your preferred dose into the blender with the other ingredients and blend away! Unlike THC, when consuming CBD, you don't need to worry about getting high because cannabidiol is nonpsychotropic. However, start on the lower side of the dosage range (between 2.5 to 25 milligrams CBD per drink), especially if you're new to CBD. And always speak with your healthcare provider before mixing CBD with other medications, which is not recommended.
I hope you're ready to make this refreshing CBD-infused drink! Keep reading for the recipe.
For best results, use a full-spectrum hemp-derived CBD tincture of your choice at your preferred dose. Just be sure the tincture is unflavored so it doesn't compromise the flavor of the drink.
