“CBD lemonade? Watch the video for the easy recipe.
From skin-care products to food and tinctures, you can get your CBD just about any way you like. And if you pick up a CBD-infused drink on the reg, herbalist and holistic health practitioner Rachelle Robinett is here to teach you how to make your own in the latest episode of Well+Good’s YouTube series Plant Based.
In this episode Robinett is joined by Lou Sagar, the founder of The Alchemist’s Kitchen. Sagar (who’s a bit of a CBD expert) says that people use the cannabinoid compound for a variety of reasons, including stress, anxiety, menstrual pain and bloating, and muscular or joint pain. (It has a lot of potential health benefits, although of course more research is needed.)
When trying out CBD for the first time, Robinett recommends finding your own dosage by starting low and working your way up. “You want to reach the point where you feel the desired effect,” Robinett says. “If it’s the right plant for you, you’ll get there. If you don’t get the benefit then it might not be the right plant for you.”
However, if the taste of CBD oil straight is just not your thing (don’t blame you there!), Robinett has a solution for you: a celery juice/lemonade hybrid infused with CBD perfect for unwinding in this summer heat. For the recipe, watch the full video above.
