Has life been stressing you out lately? Maybe someone spilled your beer at a Cubs game last week or you got stuck traffic on the Kennedy Expressway (the woooorst). Instead of pulling your hair out, consider sipping a CBD infused bevvie! CBD doesn’t contain tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the ingredient found in weed that gets you high. So you can chug it anytime, anywhere to take the edge off. Here are a few places around Chicago where you can grab CBD drinks! Also, don’t forget to grab your munchies!

This Logan Square business was founded on a desire to help improve lives with botanic alternatives to pills, alcohol, and other substances. Some of their beloved beverages include Living Delta 8 Mango Lemonade and Arnie Palmer – each with a whopping 100 MG of CBD.
Pop into this aesthetically pleasing store for 12 oz cans of Recess Mood. You can’t go wrong with their Strawberry Rose or Black Cherry flavors (yum!). Recess nails it by infusing their refreshing bubbly water with strong compounds that can help your mind and body unwind.
