Beverage brand Matcha Now has launched a new ready-to-drink tea combining matcha with CBD and featuring its patented twist and shake cap which releases the ingredients.
The matcha and CBD oil are stored in a cap to preserve their purity and potency, until a simple twist releases both into the beverage.
Since launching in the UK in 2017 with its original and lightly sweet flavours, Matcha Now’s range also includes peppermint, ginger and turmeric, and now CBD.
The brand said that the combination of 100% pure matcha enhanced with 10mg of water-soluble CBD oil “presents a double whammy of energy, stamina, muscle recovery and stress relief”.
It added that in addition to improved clarity and productiveness, CBD has been proven to reduce anxiety, but stressed that CBD is a non-psychoactive, meaning that after taking it, consumers will not feel the ‘high’ that cannabis is usually known for.
Janine Marshall, UK founder of Matcha Now, says: “We are really excited to launch CBD in our range and for our customers to experience its wealth of benefits which are closely related to those of matcha.
“I am hugely passionate about its anti-anxiety effects in particular as it helps to alleviate any irrational thoughts and helps you to feel calmer and I wholeheartedly believe in the healing powers of nature for health solutions.”
