It was only a matter of time before sparkling water got the CBD treatment. Think of Recess as LaCroix's remarkably chill, uber-cool older sister. Each can contains 10 milligrams of CBD plus ginseng, L-theanine and lemon balm—a blend that's designed to help you power through the 3pm slump ("not tired, not wired" is one of the brand's taglines). Choose from bespoke flavors like blood orange, pomegranate-hibiscus and blackberry-chai—or spring for the sampler pack to try them all.
Look, we love CBD-infused gummies just as much as the next millennial, but there are tons of other ways to dabble in cannabidiol. These days, you can find the stuff in everything from olive oil and bath bombs to sparkling water and truffles.
For the uninitiated, CBD is derived from cannabis plants, but it doesn't contain THC, the psychoactive compound in weed that makes you feel high. Admittedly, there's a lot that researchers don't yet know about CBD, so it's best to take lofty claims with a grain of salt. In short, CBD definitely won't induce the munchies, but it's purported benefits (less stress, better sleep) are still up for debate.
With all of that in mind, there are some awesome new ways to get your daily dose of CBD. Self-care devotees can indulge in serums, salves and salts, all of which are crafted with relaxation in mind. Foodies, on the other hand, can shake things up in the kitchen with chocolates, chili oil and zero-proof spirits. There's something for everyone and every comfort level.
