While there are many beverage brands that are now venturing into the creation of CBD-infused sparkling water products, Mirth Provisions is setting itself apart with Otto’s CBD Cider. The beverage contains 30 milligrams of hemp-derived CBD in each 12-ounce bottle and no alcohol, THC or gluten.
The refreshing CBD-infused ciders from Otto’s CBD Cider are being introduced across the United States in flavors like Double Hop Apple, Pineapple Passionfruit and Pear Rhubarb. Each of these bottled cider drinks is prepared with organic apples from Washington.
Otto’s CBD Cider is Free from Alcohol & THC Yet Full of Flavor
At the same time many consumers are becoming interested in low- and no-alcohol drinks, they are also exploring CBD-infused beverages across all categories that are non-intoxicating, full of interesting flavors and potentially even side benefits.
Ultimately, the process of making a CBD beverage depends upon the type of product itself. In general, the beverage is filtered and subsequently infused with CBD. Because of its versatility, CBD can be added into almost any type of beverage you can think of – everything from non-alcoholic wine to cold brew coffees, flavored waters, herbal teas, and more. And with advancements in beverage development technology, such as Flavorman’s SoluCan BD solution, it’s easier than ever to create tasty, CBD-infused drinks that consumers will enjoy.
According to Harvard Health, evidence of CBD’s health properties is perhaps most visible in treating epilepsy. CBD has proven especially effective in relieving symptoms for those living with Dravet and Lennox-Gastaut syndromes, which typically don’t respond to traditional anti-seizure medications. As a matter of fact, the FDA recently approved the first cannabis-derived medicine, a CBD-based oral solution to help individuals suffering from these types of seizures.
How are CBD beverages made?
While still new to the beverage scene, CBD drinks are growing in popularity as cannabis-infused products, including medical and recreational marijuana, face legalization across the country and the world. Within an American context, CBD’s popularity has been fueled by its increasing availability paired with a growing health trend, with more and more American consumers ditching sugary drinks for “better-for-you” alternatives. And because CBD is derived from a natural source, CBD-infused beverages of all kinds provide an excellent substitute, with health benefits to boot!
Why is CBD trending?
Recognizing its health properties, Flavorman began researching CBD’s potential in the beverage space in 2017. Flavorman sought to find a way to develop more broadly marketable, easier-to-drink CBD-infused beverages. In this process, we’ve successfully developed a water-soluable CBD distillate, called SoluCan BD, which allows us to do just that.
