CBD Sparkling Ginger Ale Review – Refreshing Soda, Elevated
Quench your thirst with 20 milligrams of broad-spectrum hemp extract. We taste tested CBD Sparkling Ginger Ale for this review.
While the range of products containing CBD booms, I was still a little surprised to see a shelf of CBD soda at my local Sprouts grocery store in Denver.
And among a bunch of flavors (Cola, Root Beer, Lemonaid), my favorite stood out — ginger ale.
I’ve long been a fan of ginger ale. It goes great with whiskey for a simple mixed drink. And it soothes the tummy on a long flight, hard exercise, or illness.
So CBD ginger ale? Sign me up. (I’m also a big coffee drinker. Check out our best CBD coffee article here.)
Taste Testing CBD Ginger Ale
I chilled the ale from Colorado’s Best Drinks (sparklingcbd.com) in the fridge. Then, I poured some into a wine glass to give it a good look.
The soda poured out a little cloudy but consistent. It had a slight fizz, but much less than most commercial sodas from mega-corporations.
With a sip, I was pleased. The CBD Ginger Ale had a distinctive ginger flavor. It wasn’t strong enough to be spicy as some ginger can be. But the ginger was definitely there.
Interestingly, the can does not list “ginger” on its ingredients. It includes: sparkling water, organic agave nectar, natural flavor extracts, non-gmo citric acid, and PCR hemp extract.
The ginger must be under “flavor extracts,” which I find mildly disappointing.
Can You Taste The Hemp in CBD Soda?
At least in the case of this beverage, I could not taste the CBD. It tastes like soda, plain and simple. It’s quite good, and sat well on my stomach.
I did find myself feeling quite chill after drinking it. But given the limited psychoactive effects of CBD, that’s no surprise. For those looking for a pre-bed beverage or something to charge through the afternoon at work, it’s a solid choice with the benefits of CBD.
The CBD Sparkling Ginger Ale is not cheap, at about $3.50 for a 12-ounce can. but when you consider the price of CBD, it’s understandable. Look for it in Colorado now, and likely across the US soon.
