Sparkling water is the latest CBD-infused product

From beauty products to coffee, the number of CBD-infused products continue to rise as modern youth seek out new ways to manage their mental and physical wellness. The following sparkling water brands feature CBD and provide all-natural, zero-calorie beverages to help consumers de-stress.

DRAM APOTHECARY

Colorado-based maker of cocktail bitters and syrups DRAM Apothecary has jumped onto the CBD bandwagon with a new line of craft CBD-infused sparkling waters. Each can contains 20 mg of CBD, along with a bunch of adaptogenic ingredients, such as schisandra berry, skullcap, and ashwagandha. DRAM uses a mix of in-house extracts to craft its line of beverages, which comes in three flavors: Lemongrass, Gingergrass, and Sweetgrass. DRAM’s founders hope that the craft beverages will attract today’s young consumers who like to know where and how their products are made.  

MOUNTJOY SPARKLING

Beverage brand Mountjoy Sparkling is on a mission to refresh and de-stress consumers with its CBD-infused sparkling water. The beverage comes in five flavors, orange, peach, lemon lime, blackberry, and natural, and contains 10 mg of organic CBD, which is said to help relieve pain and anxiety, reduce inflammation, and improve one’s overall wellbeing. Along with providing a quality beverage, the brand also wants to reframe the stereotype of the lazy stoner by marketing the sparkling water as a product for the active lifestyle. As the perception of weed continues to evolve, brands like Mountjoy that celebrate its health benefits will resonate among modern youth.

RECESS

Adaptogens meet CBD in a new line of hemp-infused sparkling water called Recess. Taking inspiration from modern youth’s obsession with Instagram-worthy seltzer water, Recess provides consumers a new way to sit back and relax with a cold beverage. The sparkling water comes in aesthetically pleasing pastel cans and is available in three flavors—Peach Ginger, Pom Hibiscus, and Blackcherry Chai—and contains a combination of CBD and three adaptogenic herbs, ginseng, L-theanine, and schisandra berry. The ingredients are intended to help consumers reduce stress, boost the immune system, and increase energy.
