Truth: Motherhood is stressful. Can I get an amen to that? It takes constant planning and strategizing. Little voices are always calling your name and asking you questions. You are entirely responsible for a tiny human’s life. And, while you love every second of it, it’s definitely important to take some time for yourself to unwind in peace every now and then. 

Well, we’ve got the cocktail for you. For those times when you need a little more relaxation than just a simple cocktail can provide, our frozen Bellini CBD recipe will have you chillaxin’ in brunch (or dinner) heaven.

But first thing’s first. Let us be very clear that we are not suggesting you get high for brunch. I mean, do whatever you’ve gotta do, but we’re not in that type of business. CBD is the non-psychoactive component of THC, which means you won’t get “high,” but you will feel more relaxed.

Studies have shown that the use of CBD reduces anxiety, helps with pain management and encourages prevention and reduction of inflammation. CBD can also promote a more restful sleep, benefit heart function and even reduce chemotherapy effects in cancer patients.

As with anything new in your diet, start slow (we suggest 10 milligrams to begin — the milligrams should be written on the label). CBD — whether oil-based or alcohol-based — is an ingredient that you can add to almost anything. In this case, we’ll be using water-soluble CBD because it’s the best option for drinks. Once you get familiar with what your body needs, you will quickly learn how to incorporate CBD into your everyday life and you’ll start to feel the difference.

For our frozen Bellini CBD recipe, we have suggested the baseline 10 milligram dose. Check out the full recipe below.
