Every now and again, a new health fad will take the world by storm. Most recently, it's been wellness shots, AKA juice shots loaded with vitamins and minerals meant to provide a whole host of health benefits.
But what do these cold-pressed juices have to do with CBD, you ask? Well, lately, many CBD companies have been jumping on the wellness shot bandwagon, adding cannabinoids to these already concentrated juices.
Below, we'll go through the potential wellness shot benefits that have been researched and give you some other wellness options that may suit your lifestyle even better.

Wellness shots explained
Wellness shots usually come in a 1-3 ounce bottle with several health claims jam-packed onto the label. While these wellness shots often contain organic ingredients that are healthy, vitamin-C-rich, and beneficial on their own, more research is needed to back up how nutritious these wellness shots really are.
For the most part, though, a wellness shot can be incorporated safely into a healthy diet. Of course, large quantities of anything can similarly produce adverse effects.
But there's nothing that says wellness shots are a requirement for living a healthy life and boosting your immune system. That said, here are some of the main ingredients used in a wellness shot meant to offer certain health benefits of their own.
Common ingredients used in wellness shots
Every wellness shot will vary. But here are the top ingredients you can expect from some of the best wellness shots out there.
Ginger is a common ingredient used to treat an upset stomach. But beyond that, ginger may help to reduce nausea, and bloating, and may even reduce inflammation.
Ginger is also a potent antimicrobial that may help your body fight off chronic diseases like high blood pressure, and heart disease, and promote healthy aging.
Turmeric is known for its anti-inflammatory properties or perhaps, more specifically, turmeric's active compound curcumin. Both turmeric and curcumin fight inflammation in the gastrointestinal tract, muscles, and connective tissue.
And when paired with black pepper, turmeric may be better absorbed by the body. Overall, turmeric is considered a great supplement if you're in need of an energy boost.
Apple cider vinegar
Apple cider vinegar has shown promise in improving users' blood sugar levels. Packed with vitamins, minerals, and enzymes alike, it may also stimulate your immune function.
CBD wellness shots
Adding CBD into the mix of these fruits and vegetables is said to offer the body another set of nutrients that wellness shots on their own can't accomplish. Before we go any further, let's differentiate CBD from THC.
THC is the psychoactive compound found in marijuana that can get you "high." But CBD, on the other hand, does not produce psychoactive effects.
So, when taking CBD wellness shots or even a CBD rub, you will not get "high" as you would with THC products. But CBD may offer certain effects that users find helpful.
Studies have found potential effects of CBD including reducing nausea, improving appetite, and relieving pain, stress, and anxiety. And when combined with all the nutrients of a cold-pressed wellness shot, its potential benefits are thought to expand.
Some people swear by wellness shots, including ones with CBD. But in case you're looking for wellness products outside of the cold-pressed juice aisle, consider these other alternatives.

Other CBD wellness products
We may not currently stock drink shots loaded with ginger, beta carotene, cayenne pepper, and added sugar at Clean Remedies. But our knowledge of CBD and CBG gives us a particular edge when it comes to wellness products.
CBG & CBD Optimal Wellness Tincture
Our CBG & CBD Optimal Wellness Tincture is formulated with a 1:1 ratio of CBG to CBD. CBG is found in the hemp plant's early stages of maturation and is known for its unique effects that have been described as both restorative and rejuvenating.
Cannabinoids on their own are known as potent, anti-inflammatory antioxidants. When combined with natural wild fruits and their flavors, these tinctures offer you a unique experience.
CBG & CBD Optimal Wellness Gummies
If you're not a fan of tinctures and oils, consider our CBG & CBD Optimal Wellness Gummies. These gummies similarly have a 1:1 ratio of CBG to CBD.
But when ingested, unlike CBD tinctures and oils, these gummies may offer you longer-lasting effects. CBD, on its own, contains a variety of nutrients such as thiamine, niacin, vitamin E, calcium, potassium, iron, zinc, and more.
When combined with the vitamins and minerals present in CBG, CBD's potential benefits are thought to expand. (We also have delta 9 gummies formulated for your wellness.)
The bottom line
When it comes to wellness shots, there's certainly evidence enough that CBD has proven its rank among these vitamin-C-rich fruits. Whether you're looking for antioxidants, want to boost your immune system, prevent the common cold, or otherwise, these juice shots are here at your disposal.
At Clean Remedies, we care about your wellness above all else. That's why each of our products is third-party lab tested to ensure you that every ingredient we list is actually in the product itself.
Whether it's with the food or juice shots you consume, we encourage you to take your wellness into your own hands. And know that our CBD products are here to help you do the same.
