hemp energy drinks: natural energy without the crash.

It’s 3 p.m. And you. Are. Dragging. Sadly, you can’t just lie down under your desk and take a nap George Costanza-style. You need a quick pick-me-up. But coffee gives you the jitters and you’re not excited about the artificial ingredients in most energy drinks. If great health is your goal, the can in your nearest vending machine just won’t do. Maybe it’s time to try one of these hemp energy drinks you’ve heard about. But which one to choose?

WHY CHOOSE A HEMP ENERGY DRINK?

Canned or bottled energy drinks are marketed as a quick fix for your energy dips. Mostly they rely on caffeine and sugar to wake you up and get you moving. There’s just one problem with this approach: the caffeine-sugar combo tends to cause a sharp energy spike followed by a fast crash.

Canned or bottled energy drinks are marketed as a quick fix for your energy dips.

Enter hemp energy drinks. They tend to rely on more natural ingredients and vitamins to achieve that energy boost. Plus, you get the extra benefit of the natural antioxidants and adaptogens in hemp.

 

And here’s the thing, you most likely reach for an energy drink in hopes that it will increase your energy and mental clarity. Such nootropic effects are what caffeine is known for. But CBD is also a nootropic. It can help clear brain fog by decreasing neuroinflammation in the brain. And it does this without the jittery effects of caffeine. Can your convenience store energy drink do that? No. We didn’t think so.

FULL SPECTRUM HEMP OR CBD ISOLATE

Most canned hemp energy drinks are made with hemp seed oil. That means they include the full-spectrum of 113 cannabinoids, including trace amounts of THC. It won’t alter your awareness, but some people still prefer to steer clear of THC. If that’s your aim, you’ll want to look for a CBD isolate energy drink. These are a little harder to come by, but Zolt has you covered. 

Our Rise mixie stick is your wake-up wonder. This perfect blend of CBD isolate, caffeine, and guarana has a lemony taste that’s equally delicious whether you drink it hot or cold. Great for the morning or anytime you need a gentle energy boost without the crash.

But if you hear adaptogens and antioxidants and think yes please, grab a Zolt Rise+ or Dial-up+ mixie. These naturally caffeinated full-spectrum CBD mixies come in tropical orange and peach tea flavors. We recommend rise+ for the morning and Dial-up+ for a mid-day jump start, but we won’t tell anyone if you decide to switch things up. Both flavors taste great, combining natural caffeine and guarana with antioxidants and adaptogens to give you a jitter-free boost of natural energy. 

Plus unlike those canned hemp energy drinks, you can easily carry a few of your favorite mixie sticks in your purse, pocket, backpack, or gym bag. They’re small and convenient to carry. Just grab a bottle of water, mix it up, and drink it down. You’ll be ready to conquer the afternoon in no time.
