How do you Infuse CBD with your Smoothies?
There are two ways to infuse your post-workout recovery smoothies with CBD.
- CBD Isolate. Many people wonder how to use CBD isolate. Infusing food and drinks is one fun way to use CBD isolate. Pure CBD isolate is 99% pure CBD and is perfect for making your own CBD products. To make a CBD infused fruit smoothie with CBD isolate you’ll have to infuse it with a carrier oil. We recommend using unrefined coconut MCT oil for CBD infused smoothies.

- CBD oil. Using CBD oil is super easy! Most CBD oil tinctures on the market utilize coconut MCT oil as a base and are ready to mix with just about any food or drink. Simply drop the desired amount of CBD oil in with your smoothie ingredients and blend well.
The Benefits of CBD Infused Smoothies
Whether you go to a Jamba Juice, Smoothie King, or any health-oriented smoothie shop you’ll surely be offered to “boost” your smoothie. Boosts include everything from protein powder to chia seeds. Any superfood capable of blended is added for a healthy “boost.” Essential amino acids, anti-oxidant increases, key minerals, natural energizers, boosts provide a vast scope of perks worth having. As CBD takes over headlines across the nation, contemporary coffee shops and smoothie bars already offer CBD infused beverages. While many see these shops as ahead of the curve, they tip-toe the legal line by serving CBD infused products publically. Luckily for you, because of the passing of the Farm Bill, making CBD infused fruit smoothies is something you can do yourself at home. Studies continue to link CBD to an impressive range of benefits. From anti-oxidant booster to inflammation reduction, the evidence for CBD as an essential natural supplement continues to mount. Want to check out the nerdy science stuff for yourself?
