Hemp-infused Iced Tea Now Available
Phivida Holdings Inc. is rolling out a line of single-serve functional iced teas. All of the company’s products are designed for those seeking cannabinoid-based functional benefits without the psychotropic side effects of tetrahydrocannabinol from marijuana. This is accomplished through the use of hemp-derived cannabinoids, which enable the products to be eligible for sale across the U.S.
The new 16-oz. ready-to-drink teas come in three flavors: green tea mint, lemon ginger and peach passionfruit. Low in sugar, the drinks are sweetened with agave, monkfruit extract and stevia. They are made with nanoencapsulated organic hemp extract containing up to 25mg of naturally occurring phytocannabinoids. This format maximizes the body’s ability to absorb the orally ingested cannabinoids, according to the company’s development team, which includes naturopaths, nutritionists and food scientists. The drinks are designed for gut health and contain a proprietary organic phytonutraceutical blend inspired by ancient eastern traditions of Ayurvedic plant medicine. The blend includes L-alanyl-L-glutamine, organic Indian gooseberry, ashwagandha root and leaf extract, coconut water powder, resveratrol, and a vitamin and mineral complex. The drinks are vegan, free of soy and gluten, and made with all non-GMO ingredients.
