I recently had the pleasure of trying out OLEO’s water-soluble CBD powder. OLEO is made using micro-encapsulated CBD, which increases potency and speeds onset time. OLEO drink mixes can be used in smoothies, cocktails, coffee, or any other drink (sometimes food, too!) I decided to give their Passion Fruit Rooibos Tea a go and I was blown away by its flavor! It tastes delicious just mixed with ice and water alone, and helps me pull myself together in the AM when I don’t have energy to do much else. OLEO CBD powder is also free from parabens, glycerin, artificial flavors and colors. High bioavailability and quality ingredients really power the fact that OLEO is designed to be delicious!
My Mother has always been somewhat skeptical and a bit scared of cannabis, including edibles. She had a horrible experience a few years back when she ate a THC brownie for the first time and thought she was having a stroke. After tasting OLEO CBD powder, I knew it was the perfect product to reintroduce her to cannabis with. On a sunny Sunday I went over to my parent’s house in the South Bay with my Passionfruit Rooibos tea in hand and created this clean drink recipe with her help. Finally, she has become open minded to CBD and its safe to say OLEO has really opened her eyes to new ways she can consume cannabis without fear of a psychoactive THC overload. OLEO powder comes in really cool containers with 250mg of cannabidiol as well as individual packets of 25mg doses. If you haven’t tried water-soluble CBD powder before, make sure to try OLEO!
