Our award-winning Dutch Courage with CBD is one of three 250ml Botanical Tea Drinks (otherwise known as Social Lubricants) - grown-up soft drinks infused with functional botanicals to calm, energise and excite, now available online!
Botanic Lab is the first brand in Europe to create a CBD Botanical Tea Drink, with Sour Cherry and Hibiscus. Having also recently won 3 industry awards for innovation in drinks, it’s Dutch Courage with a difference. Keep reading below for everything you need to know about CBD and our sell-out success; The Dutch Courage Botanical Tea.
WHAT IS CBD?
Cannabidiol (or CBD) is an extract of the Cannabis Sativa plant. The first thing you should know is that CBD is not psychoactive; the psychoactive ingredient is THC. THC and CBD are both produced by the cannabis plant.
BUT WHAT IS HEMP?
Hemp is a variety of the Cannabis sativa plant species that is grown specifically for lower concentrations of THC.
WHY SHOULD I DRINK CBD?
CBD is renowned for its ability to reduce anxiety along with a myriad of other benefits making it the perfect drinking partner, without any of the negative impacts of alcohol.
In short, we’ve taken the healthy part of cannabis and put it in a drink.
You can buy the new Dutch Courage along with the rest of the new range here and at a bar near you soon. CBD helps some people to relax and some people believe it has anti-anxiety, anti-inflammatory, and anti-pain properties.
TELL ME MORE ABOUT CBD IN YOUR DUTCH COURAGE TEA?
There are a couple of factors to consider when choosing your CBD; Quality and Quantity. Firstly, whether the product is an Isolate, Broad-Spectrum or Full-Spectrum. A CBD isolate is exactly what it sounds like; pure, isolated CBD compound, all by itself. Full-Spectrum, is the whole plant extract, which includes other cannabinoids; vitamins, minerals, terpenes, and healthy Omega fatty acids and THC. At Botanic Lab we use Broad-Spectrum, which contains the same properties as Full-Spectrum, just minus the THC. The amount of CBD in a product varies, and most suppliers recommend a daily dose of 2-5mg.
Each Dutch Courage contains 5mg of Hemp CBD extract, an amount ideal for general health maintenance.
WHAT DOES CBD TASTE OF?
Hemp has an earthy flavour, but ours is spiked with Cannabidiol (CBD) is an extract of the Cannabis Sativa plant – in this case, Hemp. Mixed with Hibiscus, Green Tea and Sour Cherry, it’s Dutch courage with a difference.
IS DUTCH COURAGE SUITABLE FOR VEGETARIANS AND VEGANS?
Yes, everyone can enjoy Dutch Courage.
Our award-winning Dutch Courage tea and new Mellow Drama (first UK cold-pressed hotshot with CBD) are now available online! We like to think of these as the go-to all-rounder -- just as good for a morning boost as they are sipped at a bar in the evening. With no refined sugar and less than 5g of natural sugar, these drinks shine on health credentials as much as they do on intrigue factor. You name it, we’ve got it!
