How Many CBD Drinks Can You Drink in a Day?

This article discusses the amount of CBD drinks you should drink in a day, how to drink them, and the benefits of CBD drinks.

Consuming CBD can be done in many ways, thanks to the wide range of CBD products. Incorporating CBD into one's diet daily in the form of food and beverages is becoming the most common method of CBD consumption. Currently, CBD is being added to practically every consumable and beauty product. While this is happening, the production of CBD drinks is becoming increasingly complex. Although cannabidiol is typically consumed in the form of oil, other methods of consumption crop up, courtesy of technological advances. These include products soluble in liquids like beverages. Herein, we discuss the benefits of CBD and how it can be added to daily supplements as drinks.

CBD Drinks You Take in a Day

The Food Standards Agency advises a limit of 70mg daily, although regular users consume between 100-200mg. Similarly, the cannabis derivative manifest differently, from one individual to the other.  The Farm Bill of 2018, CBD allowed the production and sale of CBD products in the US, a surge in consumer interest in beverages with CBD. Currently, CBD oil is infusible in coffee, tea, water, or soft drinks (Smith, et.al, 2021).

What Are CBD Drinks?

As aforementioned, Cannabidiol is currently used in several beverages. Notably, the Cannabis derivative does not produce intoxication in its users; it comes from industrial hemp, which has only trace amounts of the psychoactive cannabinoid known as tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC.

Cannabinoid receptors (which are part of the body's endocannabinoid system) interact with CBD molecules are involved. Komarnytsky et al. (2021) stated that CBD helps the endocannabinoid system maintain the body's balance. Because of these advantages, CBD is becoming a popular additive in beverages.

How Cannabidiol Drinks Are Made

Making a simple CBD drink takes a few drops of CBD oil with some beverage. However, large-scale production of CBD cocktails is done in a very different method.

CBD is commonly found in oil form. CBD is a crystal that mainly dissolves oil. The oil is commonly infusible in tincture, gummy, or pills. This is the case even if the product does not explicitly state that it contains CBD. However, the CBD component must be water-soluble to be legitimately recognized.

Water soluble CBD

Water-soluble CBD is modified to dissolve completely in water. The CBD is dissolved in organically sourced oil, often without flavor or color. The oil is then used as a starting point for the creation of nanoscopic droplets via nanotechnology, which results in a stabilized additive that does not entirely alter the flavor, color, or consistency of whatever it is blended into.

CBD water-soluble products use nanotechnology that encapsulates exceptionally minute quantities of hemp extract. While the shell's exterior is water-soluble, the inside can form bonds with fat-soluble compounds like CBD, while the outside is soluble in water. In this manner, the CBD molecules will spread when you combine them with water or a beverage.

Benefits of CBD Drinks

CBD is a hydrophobic material. However, it mixes in carrier oil to increase its bioavailability.  Bioavailability is the ability of a compound to dispense health benefits to the body. Cairney & Oliver (2017)  stated that bioavailability will differ based on how you take the product. Ingesting CBD has the lowest bioavailability compared to the other methods of consumption. Ingested CBD must go through "first-pass metabolism" to be broken down before entering the bloodstream.

Water makes up a larger percentage of human body. It is does not need digestion to extract its beneficial components, as it does with food. Huang et al, (2021)  stated that water-soluble CBD should be more effective than oil-soluble.

It has been hypothesized that water-soluble cannabis compounds not only get absorbed faster in the body, but also its effects manifest faster.  However, water-soluble CBD contains a lower concentration of CBD, reducing its benefits to the body.  

Homemade CBD beverages may be more efficient than swirling oil tincture drops.

Conclusion

In a nutshell, cannabidiol, also known as CBD, is the primary cannabinoid (chemical substance) extracted from cannabis. Unlike THC, CBD does not present psychoactive effects to the user. CBD products contain numerous medical and therapeutic effects that dispense several benefits to the body. Similarly, the cannabis derivative is infusible in a carrier oil to enhance its bioavailability, although it is modifiable through nanotechnology to make it water-soluble. Among the most common beverages include tea, coffee, and soft drinks.
