CBD Drinks are at Chillhouse and They’re Everything You Need to Zen the F Out

by Chillhouse

At Chillhouse, we’re all about, well, being chill—And we really mean that. While we know how to throw a party and vent about heartbreak at our events, behind the scenes, we work our butts off to make sure we’re providing the ultimate experience for you. So we’re taking it to the next level with our brand new CBD menu.

Starting today, you can cure that afternoon meltdown you have at work (we’ve all been there, obv.) with one of our three CBD drinks, or if you’re fancy, our ricotta toast with CBD honey. They’re all made with premium ingredients like butterfly pea tea, Genmaicha green tea, and orange blossom, all proven to give you maximum chill.

So why CBD? Is it legal? Does it really relax you? Can your grandma use it with you without getting turnt? Well, let us explain.

What is CBD and Why Do You Need It In Your Life 

CBD is a cannabinoid derived from the cannabis plant. If you’re thinking, “isn’t cannabis basically weed?” you’re not exactly wrong. The cannabis plant produces over 100 types of cannabinoids, one of them being THC (which is what gets you high). CBD, however, is a cannabinoid therapeutic and promotes relaxation, calmness, and that overall chill feeling we’re looking for—no high necessary. Every drink below uses Green Witch’s CBD, which uses a unique strain that is derived from the most medically high cannabidiol strain.

While CBD might be the star of the show, the supporting elements are just as vital in your relaxation experience. So without further ado, here is the Chillhouse CBD menu and a list of how these ingredients will help you zen the eff out.

Toasted Palmer

Think of this drink as a super chill version of the traditional Arnold Palmer. Made with Genmaicha, this Japanese green tea is made with brown rice kernels and has a mild, nutty taste. While green tea has been proven to lower your blood pressure and the risk of heart disease, Genmaicha, in particular, has an active ingredient called theanine to give you a soothing, relaxed feeling and offers a large number of antioxidants to help boost your immune system.
The Lemon juice is there to aid in heart health due to its high-concentrated amount of vitamin C (which can also stimulate your digestive tract). Lemons can also provide a good amount of potassium to your system by offering 80 milligrams.

Purple Haze

Because this purple little number is inspired by the sweet tunes of Jimi Hendrix, you can bet on your life that this drink will provide the same chill vibes to your taste buds. Chamomile has been known to be used to treat anxiety and upset stomachs. Orange Blossom, on the other hand, can aid with menstrual cramps, relieve headaches, and health provide a better night’s rest.

While Butterfly Pea is a unique name of itself, this gem of an ingredient is there to provide a number of health benefits in addition to its Instagram-worthy bright blue hue. This caffeine-free tea can reduce anxiety; promote collagen growth, brain function, memory, blood flow; and improves heart health. Basically, it’s the perfect drink to provide an instant immune pick-me-up.

Hibiscus Milkshake

While this drink can be a little misleading due to its name (sorry, no ice cream here!), we guarantee it’s just as tasty. Hibiscus Tea is a power drink that will provide protection for your liver, lower your blood pressure and cholesterol. However, just because there’s no ice cream doesn’t mean we couldn’t include something creamy and delicious. Cue in: Coconut Milk. Even though it’s known to be used as a great alternative to dairy, when consumed, it can boost your immune system thanks to its antibacterial and antifungal properties; prevent heart disease, and provide healthy skin and hair.
Last but not least, Peychaud’s Bitters will sooth that tummy ache in no time. With a few dashes of this guy, you’ll have less acid reflux and improved digestion.

Whipped Toast

 

If you don’t already know, we happen to believe in a healthy balance when it comes to health—meaning it’s completely okay to indulge. Ricotta cheese is a better option than its bestie, cottage cheese, because it has 14 grams of protein and 25 percent of your daily calcium needs. Oh, and it’s also has a good amount of vitamin A and B.
CBD Honey isn’t just there to add a little sweetness (even though we’re not mad about it). This honey will instantly chill you out. According to Ayurvedic tradition, honey has been able to deliver herbal medicine directly into the bloodstream because it’s one of the most easily digestible carbohydrates—which basically means this CBD will hit you fast.
