“One of common perceptions about wellness—whether it be routines, products, food, or drink—is that it is complicated, and that our taste buds need to take a back seat. With an easygoing tone and creative recipes for all moods and seasons, Carlene Thomas’s CBD Drinks for Health gives us wellness that tastes good. Like many people, I am someone who was daunted by all the information on CBD. Carlene made the topic approachable from the beginning, a testament to how extensively she understands the topic. The same carries through in the recipes—they are simple, thoughtfully designed, and filled with practical tips, with the occasional playful bits of humor. Whether you love experimenting in the kitchen or you’re just looking for easy swaps for your morning coffee or smoothie, you will find so many nuggets in this book. And, like me, you might also find yourself inspired and curious to try much more.”
