DROPS of CBD oil are being used to supercharge a newly-launched health drink.
Two Paisley brothers who run the Nutrivive CBD oil company, John and Harry McDonough have joined with hair and beauty guru, Fallon Carberry to create the Zen AF drink.
The drink is part of Fallon’s new Juicy range of cold-pressed juices, protein-packed smoothies, superfood acai bowls and more for the growing health food and drinks market.
Bottles of the raw juice range are currently available to order online, but now Fallon – the entrepreneur behind the hugely successful Blow Salons throughout Glasgow – is set to open her first Juicy store in Byres Road, in the west end of the city.
In recent years, many people have been turning to CBD oil to help them relax and deal with anxiety, get a deep, restful sleep and find relief from inflammation and pain.
The Nutrivive premium CBD oil contains cannabidiol, which is the part of the cannabis plant with pain relieving, calming and healing properties. It is legal, safe and non-addictive, as it doesn’t contain the THC compound that gives the ‘high’ associated with smoking cannabis.
As well as Nutrivive CBD oil – which is triple-tested for quality of content in one of Europe’s top laboratories – the Zen AF health juice contains cold-pressed celery, cucumber, apple, lime and parsley.
Paisley-based Nutrivive co-owner, Harry McDonough said: “Usually people buy our CBD oil in bottles and take it by putting drops under their tongue.
“Although taking CBD infused in a health juice may appear to be a rather unusual way of taking the oil, it certainly works.
“The Zen AF juice is very tasty and people are also reaping the benefits to their well-being with all the other healthy ingredients in the juice.”
Fallon explains: “We wanted to do something to supercharge our Zen AF juice and we found the best way to do that was to infuse the drink with the Nutritive CBD oil.
“We choose Nutrivive because we were happy with the quality of their oil, which provides many benefits to people’s well-being.
“Having CBD in our drink is a very safe, accessible and fun way of getting the oil into your system as part of a daily wellness regime.
“Our Zen AF juice helps people sleep better and also aids dealing with anxiety and stress, which in turn, gives people more energy and increases their concentration. We’re sure it’s going to be really popular.”
Some of the best-known celebrities who are said to use CBD oil include Kim Kardashian, Whoopi Goldberg, Jennifer Aniston, Gwyneth Paltrow, Mike Tyson, Morgan Freeman and Tom Hanks. Even David Beckham has invested in a company using CBD in its products.
