CBD libations infuse Las Vegas’ dining scene with a boost of wellness

CBD libations infuse Las Vegas’ dining scene with a boost of wellness

The cannabis industry is experiencing a cultural shift and knows its target market isn’t strictly limited to stereotypical THC-seeking stoners anymore. Many restaurants in Southern Nevada are expanding their menus to incorporate items infused with CBD, the second most abundant cannabinoid extracted from the cannabis plant. This cannabinoid isn’t intoxicating like THC, but it’s known by the cannabis industry to be a powerful anti-inflammatory, pain-relieving agent, and a mood relaxer. There are a number of CBD-infused libations available around the Las Vegas Valley at health-oriented cafes and juice bars that will quench your thirst, alleviate your pain, and boost your mood. 


FEELING CANNABLISSED 

On a hot Las Vegas afternoon nothing will quench your thirst quite like VegeNation’s Cannabliss Kombucha. This plant-based restaurant with two locations in the Las Vegas Valley offers a one-of-a-kind pineapple kombucha that will awaken your senses with ingredients of ginger, turmeric, black pepper, lime, and CBD oil. It not only tastes refreshing, but also offers a number of health benefits. In addition to the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties of turmeric, a few drops of CBD will lighten your mood and leave you feeling relaxed but not intoxicated. The kombucha VegeNation uses is a fermented tea that’s naturally effervescent with living probiotics, amino acids, polyphenols, and active enzymes. It’s also vegan, non-GMO, and gluten-free. The only item on the menu containing CBD, Cannabliss Kombucha is tart, slightly carbonated and contains a bit of a spicy aftertaste resulting from the black pepper. Its fresh and invigorating ingredients will leave you feeling rejuvenated and satisfied after sipping on this light, fun drink. vegenationlv.com


STAR POWER 

In addition to locations in California, Utah, and Oregon, Juice Stars has six locations in the Las Vegas area. For those interested in adding CBD oil to the wwrestaurant’s signature juices and smoothies there are ample possibilities to select from. Customers can pick from single juice options that include orange, celery, apple, cucumber, pineapple, carrot, watermelon, coconut, or beet, or pick a more sophisticated smoothie like the green goddess which combines spinach, kale, banana, mango, pineapple, cilantro, basil, flax seeds, and coconut milk. In addition to adding a few drops of CBD oil to elevate your mood, customers trying to fight off a cold or illness can add booster shots like the flu-fighter for an added health kick and immunity boosting-power. juicestars.com


TEA FOR TRANQUILITY 

Although there are no dine-in options at ReLeaf, this local dispensary offers a wide variety of CBD products with an emphasis on health and wellness including a line of CBD-infused teas from Baskin Essentials. With flavors of blood orange, chamomile, and peppermint, each contain unique flavors combined with 25 milligrams of CBD per serving. Blood orange is delicious when steeped and poured over ice. With a blend of citrus flavors and a slight hint of vanilla, the blood orange tea is designed to improve your mood and reduce anxiety. The peppermint variety is designed to enjoy before or after a meal to help boost your metabolism and contains a flavor profile that will delight your senses. With tea leaves imported from Egypt, the chamomile flavor is an excellent nighttime tea that is extra soothing when served warm. Make it a staple of your bedtime routine and cozy up with a warm cup of CBD chamomile to unwind after a long day. lasvegasreleaf.com
