Sweet citrusy heat jumpstarts your well-being
Ginger shots are an easy to make wellness tonic and brewing them fills your home with a beautiful bright aroma. Fresh ginger is loaded with health positive compounds. Both antibacterial and anti-inflammatory, it also boasts antioxidants among its many benefits. Add high-concentration vitamin C lemon juice and mineral-rich maple syrup and you’ve got a super brew. Complete it with CBD tincture to reach new heights.
Finding the right CBD dosage is a personal quest. Start with a low dose and adjust until the desired results are achieved. To begin the process, you can opt to simply add CBD tincture directly to your shot glass rather than the entire brew. Once you have a clear idea of your preferred dosage, you can personalize your ginger brew with the correct amount. In this recipe we’ve used a microdose of 5 mg of CBD per shot. This is a small dose and a good jumping off point. Verify the concentration of your CBD tincture as they come is wildly varying strengths. You can also enjoy these ginger shots with no CBD.
