A New Morning Obsession
Give Your Beverages A Boost
Whether you’re looking for a way to avoid the jitters from your morning caffeine, want to give your body a rest after your workout, or just need to unwind a little easier at night, adding Barker Wellness cannabinoid tinctures to your beverages throughout the day can be a great way to give them a boost. Here are a few recipes you may want to try:
Morning Matcha + Maintenance Tincture
Looking for a morning energy and focus boost that won’t give you jitters or lead to a crash later in the day? Consider switching your usual cup of coffee for a 1:1 CBD:CBG matcha latte.
Matcha is great for you. It’s high in antioxidants, it can help boost brain function, and it’s good for your heart-- not to mention delicious! It’s also super easy to prepare.
Here’s one vegan matcha latte recipe you can try out: Start by mixing 1 teaspoon of matcha powder with ¼ cup of hot water. You can also stir 1 tbsp of maple syrup, ¼ tsp of vanilla extract, and ¼ of cinnamon for a little sweetness if you prefer. Then, just add 1 cup of your favorite alternative milk - soy, almond, and oat all work great!
Next up, add a few drops of our Maintenance Tincture. It’s the perfect addition to your morning matcha. While the green tea extract mirrors the benefits of the matcha (increased focus and antioxidants), the CBG and broad-spectrum CBD will help regulate your mood throughout the day and keep you relaxed.
Post-Workout Recovery Smoothie
Help your body recover from your daily workout routine with a delicious green smoothie and our Recovery Tincture!
The refreshing watermelon mint flavor of the Recovery Tincture will mix perfectly with all the healthy fruits and vegetables in this recipe:
- 2 cups diced watermelon
- ½ cup fresh spinach
- ¼ cup broccoli florets
- ¼ cucumber, sliced
- ½ apple - peeled, cored, and diced, or more to taste
- 1 stalk celery, coarsely chopped
Just mix the watermelon in your blender till it’s liquified, then blend in all the other ingredients to create a beautiful green smoothie. Throw in a few drops of our Recovery Tincture, and you’re good to go! The CBC and CBD can help post workout recovery and relax your muscles.
(Bonus tip: add 2 tablespoons of hemp seeds before blending for an extra boost!)
Soothing Bedtime Tea + Sleep Tincture
If you have trouble unwinding at night, drinking a calming tonic before bed can be a great addition to your nighttime routine-- and it can potentially help you sleep better, too, especially when you add a few drops of our Sleep Tincture to the mix. You can keep your bedtime beverage as simple as a bag of chamomile tea, or you can get crafty in the kitchen with something like this tonic recipe:
- 3 Tbs. dried chamomile
- 3-5 small dried rosebuds
- 2 tsp. willow bark
- 2 tsp. lemon balm
- 1 tsp. valerian
- 1 tsp. saigon cinnamon, or a cinnamon stick to stir with
Add our Sleep Tincture to ensure even more relaxation. CBN, the key component, works with other calming ingredients like melatonin, valerian root extract, and of course, broad spectrum hemp (CBD) to help promote a restful sleep.
