Who doesn’t love a classic Gin & Tonic? The two-ingredient dynamo is also an ideal complement for CBD’s funky notes. Experiment with different gins to see what works best for you. This recipe uses a premade CBD elixir. You can also use CBD-infused water, which you can find online. Look for products with at least 10 milligrams of CBD to feel any effects, though 25 milligrams seem to be an ideal dose. Be sure to keep in mind that CBD can take up to two hours to take full effect.
