Organic food brand Rawligion has launched Relax, a new milk drink containing hemp extract.
Combining cashew nuts, dates, coconut oil, vanilla, water, hemp seeds and cannabidiol (CBD) oil from UK supplier LoveHemp, the drink is said to be the first of its kind on the UK market.
CBD oil is associated with a number of health benefits, including having a positive effect on symptoms of anxiety.
Speaking about the launch of the new drink, John Taba from Rawligion said: “Relax was created as we at Rawligion are constantly in pursuit of creating the most delicious and nutritious products in the world. It’s the same reason we are using herbs from Ayurvedic texts, medicinal mushrooms from traditional Chinese medicine and high grade superfoods from everywhere else in between! Rawligion stands for uncompromising taste and quality. It’s what I would provide to my loved ones. Every day people asked us for something to help with anxiety, insomnia or stress and it was necessary for us to create something that could help. We partnered with Love Hemp because their product simply was the best of all the ones we tried.”
“You only have to look at the US and Canada to see the future potential of hemp extract,” said Tony Calmita, co-founder of LoveHemp. “CBD is fast gaining mainstream acceptance with a growing understanding of the wide ranging benefits to health and wellbeing. We’ve had an influx of enquiries from businesses like Rawligion who are looking to capitalize on this trend as it takes off in the UK.”
