Best CBD Seltzer: Queen City Hemp

Best CBD Seltzer

Sold at a variety of retailers across the Greater Cincinnati area, Queen City Hemp has been leading the way of CBD products in Cincinnati. For those who have not heard about the growing trend of CBD oil, CBD stands for cannabidiol and is a product of cannabis. Yes, like marijuana. But CBD is labeled non-psychoactive because it does not contain the THC compound of cannabis. So, this is relevant because that means you can purchase it at (some) neighborhood vendors. According to CBD fans and proponents who use it as a health supplement, the oil has anti-inflammatory properties and can be used to treat everything from chronic pain to anxiety and seizures. There have even been some studies that suggest it slows the growth of cancer cells. And in addition to tinctures and salves, Queen City Hemp has started producing a CBD Seltzer. Although it may sound a bit like a bougier version of La Croix reserved for hipsters and hippies, it’s actually more akin to taking your morning vitamins than it is a vice. CBD Seltzer contains 5 milligrams of CBD per serving and comes in blood orange, passion fruit, guava and lemon lavender flavors. There’s no caffeine, no sugar, no sodium and no artificial flavors. You’ll find only four ingredients listed on the can: carbonated water, natural flavors, potassium sorbate (to preserve freshness) and hemp extract, the source of the CBD. You can find Queen City Hemp’s CBD Seltzer at Hemptations, health food stores like Clifton Natural Foods or Jungle Jim’s. Queen City Hemp, queencityhemp.com.
