We’ve all been there: tossing and turning late at night, restless as hell, waiting for our melatonin, Xanax and other sleeping aids to kick in, but ending up defeated. You know, when you were supposed to get to bed by midnight and you look up and it’s 3 a.m. and you’re wondering how did you end up here?
Or when you’ve come home from a long, bothersome day at work and you want to unwind without reaching for the nearest bottle of whiskey.
Insomniacs, anxiety sufferers and everyone in between, meet Relax, by Rawligion: a 100 percent organic, dairy-free, hemp-based cannabidiol “mylk” that will calm you right down.
Produced by some cool lads in the U.K., the drink is complete with only seven ingredients (all of which you can actually pronounce): hemp seeds, cashews, alkaline water, dates, coconut oil, vanilla and cannabidiol (CBD) oil. The raw drink promises to reduce stress and anxiety, relieve pain and aid in sleep.
Let’s rewind: this drink contains CBD oil? Yes! And, because cannabidiol is cannabis’ non-psychoactive ingredient, you won’t get high from consuming it, unlike it’s superstar counterpart Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), that will get you stoned. Plus, CBD has been proven to have some amazing effects on the body, too. Preclinical studies have shown that CBD helps reduce anxiety and chronic pain.
So what do you do when you just can’t fathom drinking another glass of warm milk before bed? Relax and grab some Relax. According to the brave souls that have tried it, “The Relax milk tastes very similar to almond milk – albeit slightly earthier – and has a cannabis-like aftertaste. It’s sweet and moreish.”
Sweet and moreish? We can totally get behind that.
Unfortunately, and according to Rawligion’s Instagram, this must-have milk is only available in Central London (for now), where it’s pressed, fresh and raw. But, fear not! The company is looking to expand their offerings of Relax in the near future. This would be solid, considering everyone in the company’s Instagram comments have been begging Rawligion to bring Relax to the United States.
So in the event you’re feeling really festive and are able to get your hands on this milk, you can grab your Relax and dip one of these delicious edible cookies in it, for a little late night snack. But be warned, most edibles pack quite the punch.
However, in the event you are a) not in Central London and b) too impatient to wait to get your hands on Relax, the drink does only have seven natural and accessible ingredients, so hey, maybe you can just make your own?
