June 20th marked an important moment on our calendar – Summer has officially begun! That means the days are longer, the temperatures are rising, and we can spend more time outside doing the things we love – like taking a trip to the beach, hitting the trails, and firing up the grill. Here are some ideas for incorporating CBD into those activities and more!
1. Building a bonfire? Treat yourself to S’mores powered by XO Marshamllows!
Once the sun has gone down, a great way to end a long summer day is sitting by a bonfire on the beach or firepit in the backyard. Make sure you have all the fixings for S’mores — graham crackers, dark chocolate bars, XO Strawberry hemp marshmallows that feature 10mg CBD per cube, and skewers. Strawberry and chocolate are a match made in heaven – and no one can resist a S’more, sticky fingers and all!
2. Taking a trip to the beach? Don’t forget your Mad Tasty!
A trip to the beach is a summer must activity. As you’re getting ready for your beach day, make sure to pack some cans of Mad Tasty in your cooler! Mad Tasty comes in three different flavor profiles — Watermelon Kiwi, Grapefruit, and the newly released, highly mysterious Unicorn Tears – and all three are refreshing and thirst-quenching. Each can contains 20mg of CBD and will leave you feelin’ chill. And for every 12 ounces of Mad Tasty sold, the company donates 12 ounces of clean drinking water to people and places in need through their work with Drop4Drop – so you can feel good about that too!
3. Having cocktails/mocktails on the patio? Enhance them with Rip N Sip.
It’s 5 PM –– time to head out to the patio and celebrate the end of the day with a beverage! An easy way to add CBD to a Lemonade, Margarita, Gin and Tonic, or pretty much whatever is in your refrigerator is by opening a packet of Rip N Sip and pouring it into your beverage. Each 3 ml packet contains 20 mg of flavorless liquid CBD which disperses rapidly. It doesn’t get any easier than that to make your own CBD-infused drink!
4. Hitting the trails for a hike? Bring some cans of CENTR in your daypack!
After a long week of work, one of the best ways to spend a summer weekend is in the mountains hiking and communing with nature. When you’re packing for your excursion, don’t forget your water bottle, sunscreen, first aid kit (just in case), trail mix, and a few cans of CENTR, a sparkling CBD beverage. CENTR offers two dosing options – 15mg and 30mg; the gently sweetened, light citrus flavor profile is perfect for warm weather outings and will give you the oomph you need when you’re feeling a little tired at mile five.
5. Just finished a workout? Recover with REVYV.
The better the weather gets, the more we all want to be outside getting some exercise, be it walking, running, golfing or swimming. After your workout, don’t forget to stretch well and drink a REVYV, a wellness drink for active people. On the flavor front, there will be two options to choose from – Peach Mango and Aćai Berry. A 14 oz bottle of REVYV contains 15mg CBD, electrolytes (key for rehydration and recovery), terpenes, and Ashwagandha, an adaptogen that can boost brain function and lower blood sugar levels.
6. Got a camping trip planned? Don’t forget to pack the APRCH.
Camping is a great summer activity for many reasons. It gets us out of the house where we can unplug, relax, and get in tune with nature. As far as camping beverages go, APRCH is the perfect drink to have in the cooler. This zero-calorie sparkling CBD water comes in three flavors: Lemon + Lime, Watermelon, and Mint + Cucumber – with no added sugar. Each 12 oz can contains 30mg of CBD; L-Theanine, an amino acid that promotes relaxation; Vitamin C; and organic natural flavors. Crack open a can as you’re making dinner on your camp stove, or when your settling into your sleeping bag for a good night’s rest.
7. Looking for an alternative to tap water on a sweltering day? Stay hydrated with Kleer.
On those days where the thermometer reads 90 and it feels even hotter, it’s important to drink at half a gallon (equivalent to 8 8oz glasses) of water a day to stay hydrated. Why not make some of those ounces Kleer sparkling CBD water? If you loved POG as a kid, there’s a Passion Orange Guava option, as well as Berry Blast and Cucumber Lime. Kleer’s sugar-free sparkling waters offer 25mg CBD and 100% natural flavors per 12 oz can. When the heat is getting you down, grab a Kleer to provide some relief.
8. Not sure what to bring to your friends’ BBQ? CANN is the answer!
If you’re invited to a friend’s BBQ this summer and wondering what to bring, CANN social tonic is a great alcohol-free option! Each can of CANN is infused with 4mg CBD and 2mg THC, lightly sweetened with agave nectar, and flavored with pure fruit juice. There are three flavor options, each one equally tasty — Lemon Lavender, Blood Orange, and Grapefruit Rosemary; all pair well with chips, dips, salads, and food hot off the grill.
9. Hosting a 4th of July BBQ (socially distanced, of course!)? Whip up some sauces infused with CBD.
If you are having family or friends over for the 4th but have no idea what to make, here are some links to Chef Stacy’s recipes that are perfect for an Independence Day celebration (and any occasion really!). These recipes are quick and easy and will have your guests saying, “There’s CBD in there?! I couldn’t even tell!”
