CBD Cocktails for your next girls night in!

Abdominal cramps, mood swings, migraines, anxiety, back pain, sleep disruption, bloating and food cravings – Mother Nature really can be a bit of a b***h! In fact, 80% of people who menstruate will experience painful periods within their lifetime*, with 5- 10% even saying they have been severe enough to disrupt their daily activities and social life.
Our Remedy & The Skinny Kitchen in Islington have collaborated to create the UK’s first ever pro-period CBD infused cocktail offerings, encouraging women to have their BEST period, be it a night in or a night out!
And they can be shaken (not stirred) in the comfort of your own home!
CBD (the totally legal natural extract from the cannabis plant) has been found to have relaxant and analgesic effects which can help relax muscles and soothe cramps, in addition to potentially balancing hormones.
Peppermint & Clary Sage, the other two essential oils used in Our Remedy may also help naturally soothe cramping, nausea & digestive imbalances, which can also be connected to the menstrual cycle.
Mother Nature’s Night Out & Go With The Flo’ are two CBD infused concoctions you can make at home, featuring drops of Our Remedy CBD, which may help to soothe cramps and alleviate symptoms of PMS.
Rachel Mason, founder of Our Remedy said: “Our Remedy was formulated with the debilitating symptoms of period pain in mind. However the results are unique to each person and many of our customers also use it to help with anxiety, sleep issues and even chronic pain.”
Skinny Kitchen founder Lois said: “We are looking to add CBD cocktails to our menu in the not-too-distant future so we’re really excited to create these two cocktails in collaboration with Our Remedy for people to try at home! Period symptoms can leave you feeling like all you want to do is curl up on the sofa, so we’re hoping these cocktails help you out! You could even host a cocktail making session in the garden with the girls!”
