CBD Kombucha Recipe
Do you love all the benefits of kombucha? Or, have you only just begun to learn about it? Whether you’re a novice or
have been drinking kombucha for years, expand on the positive effects of this effervescent beverage by making CBD
kombucha. This homemade CBD kombucha recipe lets you select the flavors of your choice and is a fun way to
incorporate CBD oil into your daily routine. Although kombucha is
tea-based, this CBD-infused kombucha is different
from CBD tea because it is
fermented and contains additional ingredients such as sugar and fruit.
CBD kombucha not only delivers probiotics and antioxidants, but CBD contributes additional benefits such as balancing
mood, supporting everyday wellness, promoting recovery from exercise, and promoting a sense of calm. The next time
you brew a refreshing kombucha, choose one from our delicious CBD recipes and take your kombucha to the next level!
Ingredients & Cooking Steps
Bring the water to a boil. Remove from heat and stir in the sugar and stir until completely dissolved.
Add the tea bags to the water and steep until the water cools. This may take several hours depending on the size of your pot.
Once the tea has cooled, remove the tea bags and discard them. Stir in the store-bought kombucha.
Transfer the tea and store-bought kombucha mixture to the 1-gallon glass jar and add the scoby. Using the tightly woven cloth, coffee filters, or paper towels, cover the mouth of the jar. You will want several layers of fabric covering the mouth of the jar. Secure with a rubber band.
Store the jar at room temperature, out of direct sunlight, for 7 to 10 days. During this time, check on the kombucha and scoby periodically but do your best to not disturb the tea. Typically, the scoby will float to the top or bottom of the jar. You should see a new layer of scoby begin to form, with bubbles surrounding it.
A week into fermentation, begin taste-testing your kombucha. If it is the right amount of sweet and tart to your liking, it is ready to be bottled. If it is not, continue the fermentation process.
If you plan to make another batch of kombucha, set aside two cups as your next starter tea.
Carefully pour the kombucha into your glass jars, using a funnel to prevent spilling. Add in fruit, and herbs if desired. Leave an inch of space between the kombucha and lid.
Store the bottled kombucha at room temperature for 1 or 2 days. This will allow the kombucha to carbonate.
When the kombucha is carbonated, place the glasses in the refrigerator. The kombucha will last up to 4 weeks.
When serving the kombucha, add the CBD oil.
