The Matcha Cocktail

We decided to celebrate St. Patricks day with this delicious CBD cocktail curated by master mixologist, Zack Ricks. 

Why CBD cocktails? 

CBD helps your body maintain a relaxed state. If you are feeling down from alcohol or jittery from caffeine, adding CBD to your beverage may help to assist in evening those emotions out. Not to mention, the subtle tangerine and mint flavor from our CBD oil tastes incredible in just about anything! 

 

The Matcha Cocktail 

Not only do you get the benefits from CBD in this cocktail, you get the amazing health benefits (and flavor) from Matcha. Matcha is high in a catechin called EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate), which is believed to have cancer-fighting effects on the body. Studies have linked green tea to a variety of health benefits, like helping to prevent heart disease, type 2 diabetes and cancer, and even encouraging weight loss. 

 

The recipe 

Before making a recipe, determine the right dose for you, and use that as a serving. Dosing for CBD is difficult to measure because all bodies respond differently. Start small and increase is the best way to approach dosing. Less can sometimes be more, too much oil may affect the flavor or consistency of the finished product. If you are not seeing the results you would like to see, you can slowly add more.
