Vegan specialist Bravura launches CBD drinks

Bravura Foods has launched a CBD-infused range of sparkling drinks in response to greater public demand for cannabidiol products.

‘The Leaf Life’ is the tenth brand to join the vegan specialist’s portfolio of vegan and vegetarian products.

The £1.99 drinks are available in slimline 250ml recyclable cans in three flavours, Laidback Lemonade, Relaxing Raspberry and Mindful Mango and Passionfruit.

A press release states they contain 15mg of full spectrum, fully-certified CBD and are free from all artificial flavours and colours. The range is also certified by both the Vegan and Vegetarian Societies.

Lisa Gawthorne, co-founder and director of Bravura Foods, said: “We’re so excited about this launch, not just because it’s one of our own brands, but because it really tastes amazing, with only 19-25 calories per can.”

The Uk CBD market is expected to grow to £1bn by 2025

She added: “It’s also the lowest sugar CBD drink on the market, made without any artificial sweeteners.

“In a stressful modern world, we’re changing the way we manage our health and wellbeing. The market for CBD products is set to boom in the coming years, as more and more people look for products that can help with natural calmness and tranquility.”

Market research commissioned by the CMC estimates that the CBD market in the UK will be worth almost £1b per annum by 2025.

Co-founder Karl Morris, added: “Everyone who has tasted it says it’s just like drinking a carbonated fruit drink and that is exactly what we wanted.

“We have used wholesome natural ingredients including the CBD to try and deliver a fantastic tasting product with a functional and beneficial twist.” 

The company claims it is in talks with high street and grocery retailers about stocking the range.
