on May 26, 2023

Want to create your own CBD drinks at home…

Can you put CBD oil in drinks - yes you can! CBD is now readily available in all major supermarkets, in both the food or drink aisle, in the form of CBD gummies, CBD balms, CBD sprays, CBD oils and increasingly popular CBD infused drinks. The cans come in various flavours including lemon basil, elderflower mint and peach ginger, all infused with 15mg CBD.

We are going to look at how you can create your own CBD drinks at home, using both Honey Heaven’s CBD and honey – for half the cost of a shop bought can! Follow our tried and test recipes for delicious vegan, gluten-free, drinks that will make you feel your best self.

Why choose Honey Heaven’s CBD?

We know from CBD can drinks product labelling, that you are getting 15ml premium CBD per 250 millilitre can. But how premium is their premium? It does not say in the product information. In fact, most products in the supermarkets are the same, they are very vague in this respect.

When consuming CBD made by Honey Heaven, you are guaranteed the highest quality premium Full-Spectrum CO2 Extracted Swiss Hemp Boosted Pure CBD Distillate. Ours is the purest in the CBD Industry! All products are manufactured in the UK under the best and highest conditions possible.

Our CBD production process defines our CBD products to stand out from the crowd and provide the highest standards of purity and potency, offering the highest wellbeing benefits. Plus, our CBD and phytonutrient content are confirmed and certified by independent laboratory tests.

We believe in complete transparency and are happy to list exactly how much CBD is in each drop. Honey Heaven does not dilute the oil like so many other companies, who use just a percentage of CBD oil and add extra hemp seed oil to make up the additional.

Create your own CBD drink at home

Can you put CBD oil in drinks? Yes, try for yourself! For our recipes we have used 1000mg Full Spectrum CBD Oil boosted with pure CBD distillate, but you can use our 10ml 1500mg, 3000mg, 5000mg, any of our THC free range. In fact, you can use absolutely any of the CBD oils in our ranges including Black Seed!

For all our recipes you will need:

  • Juicer (lemons/limes) / Garlic Crusher (ginger)
  • Hand blender
  • Tea strainer
  • Ice cube tray
  • Board and knife

Freeze for convenience!

So that you do not have to make a mix every evening, we suggest you make a batch for 18 drinks (or however many your ice cube tray holds), which takes around 10 minutes. Then just freeze! Any time you feel like a drink, drop a cube into 250 millilitres of lightly sparkling water, add 3 drops of our CBD (or the amount of cbd you feel works for you) stir and your drink will be deliciously infused in around a minute.

Our tried and tested recipes

  • 3 teaspoons of Honeydew honey
Oranges, Acacia Honey, Fresh Ginger and Full Spectrum CBD

To make a batch of cubes for 18 drinks you will need:

  • 4 oranges or orange juice from a carton

Tip: Our Organic CBD Honey can be added to all drinks in the place of the honey suggested, or as well as if you like your drinks sweet!

Tip: if you are not a fan of a stronger ginger taste, leave the ginger out and substitute Acacia honey with Honey and Ginger

How to make your delicious CBD drink

  • Cut the lemons/limes/oranges in half, and use the juicer to extract the juice
  • Mix the honey, herb and juice with the hand blender

For immediate use:

  • strain one tablespoon of the blended liquid into glasses
  • add 3 drops of CBD oil
  • 250 millilitres of sparkling water and stir
  • your drink is ready to go!

To freeze:

  • strain the mixture into the ice cube tray
  • when ready to drink place 1 delicious cube of mix into a glass
  • add 3 drops of CBD oil
  • 250 millilitres of sparkling water and stir
  • mix well and your drink will be lightly infused and ready in around 60 seconds!

Tip: If you don’t mind ‘bits’ in your drink, don’t strain because the CBD oil mixes well with the fruit particles making it easier to disperse.

Make it your own!

All of the above can be adjusted to suit your own tastes; have a play around with different amounts of ingredients and honey flavours. You could try many types of fruit juices or elderflower presse would be delicious too! Just add 3 drops of our CBD, and your drink is ready for you to enjoy the benefits of adding CBD for stress free sipping.

If you have people that do not want CBD in their drinks, just share out the cubes before adding, so your whole party can enjoy a glass of sparking water infused with your delicious mix. Note that even though, when placed under the tongue, our CBD oil has a nutty taste, you cannot taste this in any of the drinks we have mixed.

Can you put CBD oil in hot drinks?

Yes, you can! Try making CBD coffee, matcha latte tea or any of your other hot favourite drinks - but beware when adding CBD oil to drinks that the temperature of the liquid should be under 65 degrees. Temperatures above 65 degrees will change the molecular structure of the oil greatly reducing the effectiveness of the cannabinoids.
