To really boost the positive effect of your morning warm water routine, why not drink your glass with Full Spectrum Water Soluble CBD Capsule or add a few drops of 2.5% Alpine CBD Water Soluble Tincture to your morning glass of warm water?
Step 1: To have your water ready in the morning, prepare it the night before by filling up the glass with fresh or boiled water and placing on the radiator so it gets warm over night or early in the morning. Alternatively, just boil the kettle for a few seconds making sure that the temperatures are not boiling and just around 40-50 degrees Celsius.
When it comes to heating CBD, take great care not to overdo it. While heating CBD oil can improve its efficiency, it can also kill some of the active ingredients. CBD oil should not be heated above 90°C to avoid further decarboxylation and loss of some active phyto-cannabinoids & terpenes.
Step 2: Into the glass, squeeze 2-4 drops of 2.5% Alpine CBD Water Soluble Tincture or any other water-soluble CBD tincture adhering to the levels of CBD you are required to take.
Step 3: Take a few sips of water and don’t drink it all at once. Sipping is the best technique to drink water. This is because saliva, which we generate in large amounts, stabilises stomach acid in the mouth.
