America’s love for ice cream is as old as the country. The first ice cream parlor opened in 1776 in New York City, and since then, people haven’t stopped creating new and innovative flavors. And the latest trend in ice cream, combining the frozen treat with CBD oil, is gaining in popularity.
CBD, or Cannabidiol, is one of the compounds found in the cannabis plant. The substance has become a sought-after treatment for things like anxiety and depression, chronic pain, and acne—and some researchers say it can even lower your blood pressure. Unlike THC (another component of the cannabis plant, most commonly found in marijuana), CBD does not produce a “high.” It’s just an all-natural supplement with lots of healing properties.
With that being said, here are three reasons to try CBD oil in your ice cream today:
1.It’s an all-natural remedy for health ailments. Embraced by many healthcare practitioners, CBD is is a safe, effective, and totally natural way to treat or manage many health issues. Scientists have made great advances in recent years at understanding why this is true, and as a result, CBD is one of the biggest buzzwords of 2018. And earlier this year, the FDA approved a seizure medication derived from CBD! Plus, a study from the University of Nottingham shows that consuming CBD with dietary lipids actually helps your body to better ingest the CBD.
“Cream, as found in ice cream, actually make your body better able to absorb the CBD oil,” says Melissa at Hemp Magik. “So, if you’re going to eat ice cream, why not add in some CBD!”
2.It contains the highest-quality ingredients. At Asheville’s Rolled and Roasted, one of the few places in the country offering CBD oil ice cream, you’ll be digesting only the finest of ingredients. Their ingredients are all local and fair-trade certified—and that includes the full-spectrum organic CBD (which comes from Hemp Magik in Woodfin). And rest assured that the people who make the CBD ice cream know what they’re doing.
“CBD can be damaged, and its effectiveness can be less if it’s kept frozen or brought to high temperatures. That’s why by waiting to add CBD oil until the last second, you can expect to really feel the difference,” says Elisha Lewis of Rolled and Roasted. They prepare ice cream orders right there in front of you on a super-cold surface, combining the ice cream and the CBD at the last second to give you a truly fresh product.
3.It’s a one-of-a-kind treat. You already love rolled ice cream, and now you have reason to love it all-the-more! At Rolled and Roasted, you can mix your favorite ice cream flavor (or even coffee!) with CBD oil (you choose between 10mg or 20mg). You won’t be able to find ice cream this good anywhere else—it will definitely chill you out in more ways than one!
