Growing up in New York, there were two food items I always looked forward to eating on the weekends. Luckily, back then, you could find both of them at your local pizza parlor on the same night, creating memories that would last a lifetime.
The first, was a nice, authentic slice of pizza with thin crust, lots of cheese, and still steaming as you took it out of the box. There’s simply nothing better.
The other, a mouth-watering Italian ice. As a kid, cherry was the go-to flavor. The red juice would temporarily stain your lips and tongue, but that was part of process. You knew that going in, and you proudly walked down the street with fresh stains on your shirt from wiping the deliciousness from your face. There were no other cars in the world, just pizza and ice.
No matter how great the Ice tasted, there was always one thing that stood out, a taste you could never in your life forget. The wooden spoon.
Whether you remember the feeling when your family doctor told you to “open up wide” and then shoved a tongue depressor in your mouth, or you recall eating your favor flavored ice, you will surely never forget that wooden spoon.
So when I recently received a handful of samples of CBD Infused Ice from Mt. Everett’s Frozen Creations, opened the lid to find a brand new wrapped wooden spoon, I immediately took a stroll down memory lane.
Mt. Everetts Frozen Creations offers gourmet Italian ice infused with high quality CBD Hemp oil. Each 5 oz cup of CBD Infused Ice contains 30 mg of CBD. Each cup is lab verified, contains natural sugars, flavors and colors.
There were many flavors to choose from in my sample bag including Watermelon, Blue Raspberry, Lemon, Mango, Cherry, and Strawberry.
CBD, or cannabidiol, is the second most prevalent active ingredient in cannabis. While CBD is an essential component of medical marijuana, it is derived directly from the hemp plant, a cousin of marijuana, or manufactured in a laboratory. Thus, the ice that the Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania based company offers does not contain THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), the component that gets you “high.”
CBD doesn’t cause that high. Instead, it’s thought to work with other elements in the body linked to feelings of well-being.
People take CBD products to help with everything from arthritis and Crohn’s disease to diabetes and multiple sclerosis. Some say it helps with anxiety, insomnia, and chronic pain.
The bottom line here is, Mt. Everett’s Frozen Creations has created a product that not only tastes great, but contains ingredients that can produce medical benefits. Check them out today!
