National Margarita Day…. with CBD!

After a long week of work, you’re probably thinking about how you should unwind this weekend. One thing to consider, February 22nd is National Margarita Day! Start your weekend off by impressing your friends with a CBD-infused margarita.

Cocktails may be the most common way that people relax and enjoy time off. Adding CBD into your cocktail is simply taking your beverage a step further. Bars nationwide have recently been adding CBD-infused beverages onto their menus. This is the beginning of a new era that allows everyone to enjoy time with friends as well as treating your anxiety. “I think the drinks industry will soon transition into a holistic responsible-intoxication industry that incorporates alcohol and cannabis,” says Spiros Malandrakis, industry manager – alcoholic drinks, at market researcher Euromonitor, and co-owner of London bar Behind This Wall in The Spirits Business.

CBD is a compound found in hemp plants, one of 113 substances that can be extracted from them. Although derived from a psychoactive drug, the compound itself is non-psychoactive, but is highly regarded for its reported effects in aiding those suffering from anxiety, insomnia and certain types of chronic pain. The benefits of CBD will soon be the reason why a patron with anxiety or chronic pain will walk into a bar.
