CBD-elicious Cocktails

Move over goji berries there’s a new healthy fad in town and London is having a full blown love affair! CBD products have taken over the capital as quickly as the return of 90’s fashion and show no signs of stopping. From the latest ingredient in your pillow mist to that extra something in your matcha latte, this marijuana-derived product definitely won’t get you high but has firmly found it's place in the London bar scene - and we're intrigued.

CBD oil or cannabidiol in a nutshell is a completely legal chemical compound found in the cannabis plant. A naturally occurring substance that is used in products to make you feel relaxed and calm - ahh - as well as being able to heal you from all sorts of other things that ail you. Stressed? CBD. Not sleeping? CBD. Achey joints? Yep - CBD. 

This acronym is not to be mistaken with its cousin THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), which also comes from the same plant but is the cause of any mind-altering euphoria you may have experienced (in your distant youth). 

The jury is still out on all of the positive effects of CBD oil, but with it readily available at your nearest Holland & Barrett and nifty products like CBD bitters being made especially for bartenders, it’s now being added to your G&T, misted over your Martinis and stirred into your Negroni… not sure where to start? Then check out these top spots for CBD drinks that certainly don’t compromise on taste whilst potentially doing you the world of good.
