One of the latest wellness trends is VYBES. This organic beverage comes in an adorable bottle and contains 15mg hemp CBD.  If you aren’t familiar with CBD, it’s a chemical compound found in marijuana. Unlike THC, the component in weed that makes you feel “high”, CBD doesn’t mentally affect you. Will get more into that, but first let’s talk all things VYBES.


What’s in VYBES:


According to VYBES’ website, the drinks are made with certified organic, non-GMO ingredients.  The people at VYBES recommend a bottle every day to achieve a body’s optimal balance. Each bottle contains 25 calories making it guilt free. Unlike some wellness drinks which have a ton of sugar, VYBES only contain 4grams. I tried the Peach Ginger flavor and I was surprised how good it tasted even with such low sugar.  VYBES can count me as a fan based on taste alone!


CNN documented in their Weed special that CBD’s popularity started in 2013 after it was used to treat a five-year old with a severe form of epilepsy. Her seizures went from 300 a week to one a day. According to the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology, studies have also found CBD can potentially provide relief for inflammation, anxiety, pain, seizures, spasms, cancer, nausea, PTSD, depression and infections.


The jury is out whether CBD drinks are effective, however. The studies on CBD drinks have been a little iffy so it’s hard to say if it’s a solution to anxiety, etc. I felt relaxed after drinking it, but I was also already pretty chill beforehand.  Next time I’ll try it when I’m feeling more anxious and will report back. Ultimately, I think only you can decide if you think it has an impact.



The lowdown:

VYBES drinks are pricey so it may not be realistic to buy on a regular basis. (A 12pk is $96!) I liked the taste, however, so I would splurge on it again plus their cute marketing is really clever.


I’d love to hear your thoughts and whether you think VYBES makes a positive/meh difference in your life.
