The word " CBD " is heard everywhere these days, from health foods to super foods to beauty products.
CBD is now attracting attention around the world for its stress-relieving and relaxing effects, and there are a variety of CBD-based products available in Japan, such as CBD masks, CBD oil, and CBD candies.
Now, the editorial department of funglr Games has obtained one such CBD product, a CBD-infused energy drink!
What does this " CBDX " released by Cheerio Japan Co.
Is it made from marijuana? What is CBD?
CBD(cannabidiol ) is a stress-relieving and relaxingingredient derived from the cannabis plant.
Some of you may be a bit intimidated when you hear the word " cannabis ".
Even though it is derived from cannabis, CBD is an ingredient extracted and manufactured only from the mature stems and seeds of the cannabis plant. CBD is not classified as "marijuana" under the Cannabis Control Law.
In addition, CBD is expected to have various effects such as relieving stress, inducing sleep, andrelieving fatigue, and it does not have the "high" or addictive effects of marijuana !
It is like extracting only the benefits from marijuana. It is a next generation ingredient! That's why!
No wonder the world is paying attention to it!
Cheerio is known for its inexpensive drinks at 100 yen per bottle, but this "CBDX" is priced at 500 yen per bottle, which is relatively high for Cheerio.
The packaging is hard to imagine what it tastes like, but the simple silver-based design is very cool!
Let's take a look at the ingredients list!
Check out the nutritional information!
Ingredients per 100ml are as follows
- Energy 25kcal
- Protein 0g
- Fat 0g
- Carbohydrates 6.3g
- Salt equivalent 0g
- CBD 20mg
Unusually for an energy drink, there is no caffeine in this drink, probably because it does not interfere with the relaxing effect.
And what's most noteworthy is the 20mg of CBD!
Here's why it costs 500 yen a bottle!
That's a lot of CBD, which is expensive to manufacture, and it's supposed to have quite the relaxing effect!
There is no specific mention of flavors on the package, but what flavor does this drink fall under?
We're going to taste what's inside!
What's in the drink?
When I poured it into a glass, I found a slightly cloudy white color, like apple juice.
It is hard to imagine what it tastes like from the outside, but when you put your face close to it, a fruity and refreshing aroma penet rates through.
The first thing that comes to the mouth is a slightly sweet flavor like citrus fruits such as grapefruit and lime.
As an aftertaste, you can taste a hint of botanical bitterness.
As the saying goes, "good medicine tastes bitter," but is CBD, with its sedative effect, also a kind of good medicine?
The overall taste is not too sweet, and is a bit dry and mature, like a lemon sour.
And the fact that it's slightly carbonated makes it very drinkable, too!
I am not a fan of carbonation and dislike bitter foods, but I drank it all in an instant after the photo shoot was over.
Try Cheerio's next generation beverage "CBDX"!
This is my impression of Cheerio's next generation beverage " CBDX "!
