Silent Pool Distillers have teamed up with a fellow Surrey based company, Green Stem, to create the UK’s highest ratio CBD Gin, named Colorado High.
Colorado High Gin is created using Silent Pool’s award-winning gin, blended with Green Stem’s premium quality CBD oil. CBD is a naturally occurring plant compound which is non-psychoactive and has numerous health benefits to promote overall wellbeing, including reducing stress and deep relaxation.
The gin is infused with 200mg of CBD oil, compared to other CBD gins on the market with an average of 10mg which is not enough to produce an effect, or for the drinker to reap the therapeutic properties of CBD, Green Stem said.
The premium CBD oil is sourced from the hemp grown in the Rockies, Colorado (USA) and is classed as one of the best in the world. Colorado has the perfect growing conditions for hemp, due to its high altitude and sunny climate combined with clean air and rich, fertile soil.
The oil has a subtle, bittersweet flavour that is not dissimilar to that of a grapefruit, and is said to compliment the citrus botanicals in Silent Pool Gin, creating a refreshing gin serve.
For those that take CBD, but are not fans of the taste, pairing it with a gin and tonic is the perfect antidote – not only does it taste delicious, it’s also a safe way to ingest.
There is a cloudiness to the gin, which comes from the high amount of CBD within it. Simon Horth, Co-founder of Green Stem, says “The cloudiness of any CBD product is the best way to recognise the potency of the dosage. Many brands that claim to have CBD in their products only use minuscule amounts, rendering its effect void.
“Consumers should always check the dosage on the bottle and the cloudiness of the liquid to know they are getting a high-quality product”.
