The Benefits of Hemp and Our Recess Drinks

Cans of Recess drinks line the shelves at our store. You’ll find the different flavors of them such as black cherry, pomegranate hibiscus, blood orange, peach ginger, coconut lime, blackberry chai, and zero-proof margarita. But what’s so great about them? The answer is simple…they contain hemp!

Hemp, also known as Industrial Hemp, is a plant that derives from the Cannabis sativa plant. It does not cause any mind-altering effects, but instead contains a rich nutritional profile and provides many health benefits (Crichton-Stuart, 2018).

According to the article “Health Benefits of Hemp Seeds,” some of the nutritional benefits that hemp may provide includes:

  • Vitamins and Minerals
  • Essential fatty acids (fatty acids that your body can’t produce and must be consumed through food)
  • Fiber
  • Protein (Crichton-Stuart, 2018)

Some of the health benefits that hemp may provide includes:

  • Protecting the brain
  • Boosting heart health
  • Reducing inflammation
  • Improving skin conditions
  • Relieving rheumatoid arthritis (Crichton-Stuart, 2018)

We love that hemp has so many nutritional and health benefits. Not only do Recess drinks contain hemp, but they are also packed with other functional ingredients such as American ginseng, L-theanine, and lemon balm. These beverages are low calorie drinks and contain no added sugar, sweeteners, artificial flavors, or preservatives.

And, did we also mention that they make the perfect “mocktail”?
