I'm considered a CBD enthusiast among my friends. From regularly using pure CBD oil to testing skincare infused with the anti-inflammatory ingredient, I've managed to integrate it into as many areas of my life as possible—or so I thought. The buzzy compound only seems to be growing in popularity, and when I was handed the opportunity to try sparkling water infused with cannabidiol, I was all too willing to give it a go. 

Recess offers its CBD-infused drink in six delectable, low-sugar, low-calorie flavors, all of which are crafted with real fruit and functional herbs. And popping open a can of what the brand calls "calm, cool, and collected" sparkling water, full of hemp extract and adaptogens in flavors like blood orange and blackberry chai, has proven to be a game-changing remedy in relieving my everyday stress.

I consider myself a fairly trend-adjacent person, enough in the loop to casually know what everyone’s obsessing about, but not so in the loop that I am actually one of the obsessors. Waiting until the hype has waned is my move, which explains why I am currently cruising through Mad Men on Netflix.

When I first heard about this drink, it sounded a little too Peak 2018 for my liking: La Croix vibes, CBD, and adaptogens?! Even for a CBD obsessive, it was a bit much. But then I tried a can, and I was hooked..

and let’s not forget, it’s water, so you’re also doing double duty by hydrating. It comes in three flavors—blackberry chai, peach ginger, and pomegranate citrus—along with concentrated juice and organic ginger to help mask the CBD taste. My favorite flavor is blackberry chai, because it reminds me of the chai that my fiance, who grew up in New Delhi, introduced me to on our first trip there.
