So one if the items I received when working on my recent CBDvibes review was the 'SoStoned' cannabis energy drink. Manufactured by a company called 'Euphoria Trade' based out of the Czech Republic - it's contains Cannabis (I assume THC free hemp), CBD, Vitamins, Taurine and Caffeine.
Full ingredients -
Ingredients: Water, Sugar, Flavor Heaven Flam With Cbd (0.075%), Caramel Barwnik, Acid: Citric Acid, Sodium Citrine, Taurin (4mg / Ml), Caffeine (0.32mg / Ml), Vitamins: Pantothenic Acid, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B12, Maintenants: Sorbinian Potassium, Sodium Benzoean, Sweetening Substances: Aspartam, Acesulfam.
The can itself is a pretty cool design - with the name and look obviously playing on the Cannabis connection -
Opening the can I got to say it's got a pretty standard energy drink smell - with perhaps a vague hint of 'something else'. Taste wise... this is where it starts to stand out from other energy drinks. There's definitely an underlying 'hemp' taste to the drink - which reminds me of the Grant 'Hemp' nicotine pouches I reviewed a while back.
Hemp is a tricky taste to describe really - if you know it - you'll instantly recognize it in this drink - if not - the best description I can offer is that is has a grounded, almost earthy taste with that generally a nice, inoffensive taste.
At £4.48 it's not a cheap product by any means - and I also found it tricky to ascertain the actual CBD contents - but it certainly has a nice cannabis taste to it (not of course that I'd know what that's like!).
If you're into CBD products - and are looking for a tasty energy drink to boost your intake - I'd happily recommend this - if you can afford the slightly high price tag.
I'm not sure I'll personally be rushing out the door to buy more - as edibles, vape products and more have a little more appeal to me personally than an energy drink (I tend to try and avoid caffeine when possible) - but I can't really knock this item is any real way other than price.
What was surprising is unlike other energy drinks I was awake and alert after - but didn't suffer from some effects you get with high caffeine drinks - now I'm not sure if this is due to it containing less caffeine - but perhaps the CBD makes it a little more 'chill'?
