Chill Out With These CBD-Infused Drinks From The Growler Guys
new CBD Kombuchas are now on draft, with Cranberry and Ginger Mint flavors
Looking for a way to chill this weekend? Snag a new CBD-infused drink from The Growler Guys in Eau Claire.
The bar/restaurant franchise, which started in Oregon with a fill station movement that offers growler (64-ounce) and crowler (32-ounce) fills, celebrates its fourth year on Feb. 26. Longtime Eau Claire residents and owners of the Eau Claire store, Chris Clover and Greg Haugen believe their mission is to share their love of all things craft with their customers.
That includes their two CBD Kombuchas on draft: Cranberry and Ginger Mint, which are rotating flavors created in Sister Bay, Wisconsin. They also now offer Clearwater CBD – sparkling water that comes in rotating flavors. Currently on draft is Black and Blue, a blue raspberry-flavored drink that was created by the Northwoods Brewpub in Osseo.
Kombucha is a naturally-carbonated, sweet and sour drink made from tea that dates back almost 2,000 years, according to The Growler Guys' website. It's filled with enriching antioxidants and probiotics – or good bacteria that promote healthy digestive flora.
CBD beverages are made from cannabidiol, a non-psychoactive molecule found in cannabis, and lack the psychoactive side effects of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is found in marijuana. So it provides wellness benefits without the mind-altering effects. These benefits have been said to include better sleep, less anxiety, joint pain treatment, and pain reduction related to inflammation in cancer treatment and digestive diseases.
