UK-based functional plant-based drinks specialist Botanic Lab is making bold pitch for its new CBD infused soft drink, which it is presenting as “21st century Dutch courage”.
The company predicts that its Cannabidiol Botanical Tea Drink, together with other products in its newly launched Botanical Tea Drink range, is set to “disrupt the soft drinks industry and change the social drinking landscape”.
The new Cannabidiol Tea Drink is launched this week and combines sour cherry and floral hibiscus flavours with (non-psychoactive) botanical hemp CBD extract. Botanic Lab explains that it has “taken the healthy part of the cannabis and put it into a drink”.
Referencing CBD’s ability to reduce anxiety, the company says its new soft drink is “the perfect drinking partner, without any of the negative impacts of alcohol”.
Each Cannabidiol Botanical Tea drink contains 2mg of hemp CBD extract, an amount ideal for general health maintenance.
Botanic Lab Founder Rebekah Hall comments: “Consumers are increasingly bypassing alcohol in favour of soft drink options, but even in this day and age the non-alcohol choices are limited, boring and frankly a little flaccid. The introduction of this Botanical Tea Drink range is what we have been waiting for. Incorporating one of the most talked about and culturally significant plant ingredients of the last 100 years, CBD Botanical Tea is a ground-breaking drink.”
