Let’s face it, the CBD revolution is taking the world by storm. Most Americans are now hip to the fact that the compounds derived from the Cannabis plant are capable of amazing things, from helping with sleep disorders and PTSD, to offering relief to those suffering from chronic pain.
There are many ways to work CBD into your health care regimen, including tinctures, creams, and sprays. But the tastiest new way to enjoy the effects of CBD is via your favorite cocktail, coffee, or soft drink.
Let’s break down some of those options, showing you where to find these beverages and even how to make them yourself.
Ready-Made, CBD Infused Drinks for Purchase
Sparkling CBD Sodas
Want your CBD in a crisp, cold, non-alcoholic beverage? Try Sparking CBD sodas, which are infused with 20 mg of broad spectrum hemp extract. These come in a wide array of flavors, from classics like root beer and cola, to fruity, fun options like black cherry and lemonade.
You can get a 4-pack of CBD infused soda for $24 or a 12-pack for $60, plus shipping. While that may seem steep for regular soda, at $5 per can, you spring for the 12-pack and it’s squarely in the range of the more expensive energy drinks we see out and about at convenience stores.
Sprig CBD infused sodas are another carbonated option. We like this one because there are some great, zero sugar options like melon and sparkling lemon tea, as well as their classic citrus flavor with or without sugar. A 12-pack of sprig is going to run you a steep-ish $50, plus shipping. Again, maybe not something for the cost-conscious or for daily consumption, but as a treat or a fun mixer with some of your favorite adult beverages, it might be worth a try!
Canna Nano Water
Like your CBD clear, with no distractions? Check out Canna Nano Water. The company claims that their method of sourcing water from the ocean offers a variety of naturally occurring minerals like calcium, potassium, and magnesium. They combine that with CBD to come up with a great-tasting, clean water that is also environmentally friendly. Sounds like a good option after a tough workout or a long hike.
At $7.49 for a single 16 oz. bottle, though, this water doesn’t come cheap. A 12-pack will run you $79.49 and a case costs $149.49, plus shipping.
Kickback Cold Brew
If you’re anything like us at CBD Breaker, you don’t start your day without a kick of caffeine. Enter the folks at Kickback Cold Brew. They have lots of cool drink options to choose from. Their ground coffee costs $20 per 8 ounce bag and comes in various strengths and blends that you can brew yourself. Their cold brew, ready-made CBD infused coffee, and matcha drinks come in flavors like Golden Cashew and Just Peachy.

CBD Infused Lemonade Spritzer with Basil
Speaking of hot summer days, we love this twist on a warm weather classic. Pairing the citrus punch of lemon with seltzer and CBD infused honey makes for a super refreshing elixir.
The CBD Spritz Cocktail
This one seems like a throw-back drink from 1950, and we are digging the retro vibes! Made in a highball glass with a splash of vermouth, The CBD Spritz also mixes vodka, sparkling wine, and Sprig CBD-infused zero-sugar sparkling citrus soda for a bubbly cocktail. You can also top it off with a slice of grapefruit for some garnish.
