It's Time For RECESS!
Updated: Nov 29, 2021
I'm obsessed with RECESS! No, not school recess, silly!
This CBD calming drink is exactly what it says it is - Recess for adults! Recess is not a CBD brand, rather, a company with a mission to provide a way to help their consumers feel “calm, cool and collected.” I first heard about Recess over a year ago during the summer at my favorite lunch spot at the beach. I'm a sucker for typography and design, so I was obviously drawn to the colors & font and then when I got closer and read the can, I was 99.9% sold by the clean ingredients. After a taste test, I was 100% sold and singing Alice Cooper to myself,
"Schooooool's out for summmaaaaaaa!!! Schoooooool's out for-evaaaaaaaaahhhh!!!!"
Each of their all-natural sparkling waters are formulated with filtered water, 10 mg of broad-spectrum hemp extract (CBD), and three other adaptogenic ingredients: American ginseng to improve memory, lemon balm to boost vitality and L-theanine to reduce stress.*
*(Be sure to check with your doctor to make sure these ingredients are safe for you in case you are taking other medications etc.)
The flavors are absolutely mouthwateringly divine! They come in:
I love to sip on Recess throughout my work day to calm me down and lift my mood! It's such a treat!
Speaking of treats....When the gang at Recess are not making beverages, they stay busy by making other things like a line of self-made apparel (“Realitywear”) and ongoing limited release collaborations with top like-minded brands.
With so many quarantine pups starting to get their first real taste of reality, Recess called up their friends at Maxbone to bring back their CBD dog treats to help your furry friends with the transition, because dogs need some calm in their weird new lives just as much as we do right now. Recommended for medium & big dogs. Break into smaller pieces. (*Be sure to check with your dog's veterinarian
to make sure CBD & these ingredients are
okay for your dog.)
Recess now comes in powder form that can be added to almost any beverage or to have just on its own with water on the go! I love being able to bring the individual packets with me on a road trip or flight. It's so convenient and saves me time and money in the long run!
