5 Delicious CBD Smoothie Recipes you need to try!

You might have heard of many different ways to take CBD, but here’s one that’ll supercharge your nutrition while giving your tastebuds a treat, all in less than ten minutes – CBD smoothies.

Smoothies are already a hit on their own because a single glass can contain fruits, vegetables, and other healthy foods such as seeds or nuts. Whether you’re having a smoothie for breakfast, as a snack, or to replenish after a workout, you’re taking in a lot of nutrients and vitamins in one go. Aside from being a wellness favorite, smoothies are also tasty and refreshing, and you have endless ways to customise them.

CBD Smoothies

CBD makes a powerful addition to your smoothie because of its distinct health benefits. It’s primarily used for relaxation, but studies have also shown that it contributes to pain relief, decreases insomnia, and helps fight against chronic conditions like high blood pressure nerve-related diseases, among others.

CBD’s history as a remedy goes far back since it has been part of different cultures all over the world for thousands of years. In modern times, there are already drugs based on it such as Sativex, which is prescribed to patients with multiple sclerosis, and it attracts new research and funding every year because of the medical community’s growing interest in it.

Adding CBD to your smoothie boosts its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties on top of the other ingredients. Unlike THC—the active compound in marijuana—CBD doesn’t get you high, so you can definitely go about your regular day as alert as ever, with an increased sense of balance and relaxation.

How to Add CBD

CBD comes in many forms, but the most convenient for creating smoothies would be CBD oils and CBD isolates. CBD oils are typically packaged with a dropper, so you can simply drip that over the other smoothie ingredients and the texture will still blend in well. On the other hand, if you’d rather add powder rather than oil to your smoothie, then you can look into CBD isolates, which are much stronger because these are made up of 99% or higher CBD. Think of it as similar to mixing in protein powder, which is already a popular ingredient in smoothies.

Before you go ahead with making CBD smoothies, dosage is an important consideration. We won’t be prescribing a specific amount because it varies from person to person. As a rule of thumb, don’t go beyond 50 mg of CBD in your smoothie. 20 mg is a fairly low amount to start with, and you can practice with increasing that gradually if you want a higher dosage.

Both CBD oils and powder usually have the number of mg indicated in their packaging. For oils, a single drop amounts to around 0.05 mL, so you can calculate from that how many drops will yield a certain amount of CBD.

Once you’ve decided on the type of CBD you’ll be taking and your dosage, you can try it out with the CBD smoothie recipes below! Each recipe makes for two servings. Regular milk works fine for each, but feel free to branch out to nut milks, soy milk, coconut milk, or even plain water.

Berry Burst CBD Smoothie
