What are the ingredients in Aurora beverages?
Each sparkling beverage contains water, organic cane sugar, whole plant hemp or hops extract, gum acacia, natural flavors, ester gum, and citric acid.
We add citric acid for acidity, stability, and freshness; ascorbic acid (or Vitamin C) as an antioxidant for product color stability; ester gum is the delivery medium for our hemp and hops extract that weights the oil in solution and prevents it from floating to the top, ensuring that every sip is homogenous; gum acacia is added to evenly distribute the hemp throughout the beverage and give a fuller body and mouthfeel.
Do your hemp beverages contain cannabinoids? THC?
Each of our 200ml bottles of hemp beverage contains 25mg of hemp extract and zero THC. Our elixirs are made with a blend of broad spectrum hemp oil and raw extract hemp oil. This blend contains a higher percentage of the organic matter found in the leaves and flowers of the plant resulting in a more complete product that is both highly effective and enjoyable. This “entourage effect” comes from a broader spectrum of phytocannbinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, and other valuable hemp compounds working synergistically to heighten the positive effects of the plant. Many other infused products use only the isolated cannabinoid compound, omitting all other plant matter, flavors, and aromas.
What is a cannabinoid and what does it do?
Cannabinoids are phytocannabinoid (phyto meaning “plant”, or a compound that is naturally found in plants). Phytocannabinoids work with the body’s endocannabinoid system (the complex system in the human body that is known to regulate sleep, mood, appetite, and more). In short, cannabinoids interact with the body’s cannabinoid receptors, releasing neurotransmitters in the brain that affect mood, stress, sleep, immune function, and pain, to name a few.
What do Aurora sparkling beverages taste like?
Balanced, aromatic, and refreshing, our elixirs highlight the natural flavors and aromatics of the cannabis plant. They are lightly sweetened, slightly bitter, and pleasantly citrus forward. Each combination of ingredients is thoughtfully formulated to harmonize bright, tart, and herbaceous flavors, often inspired by our favorite apéritifs.
How will Aurora sparkling beverages make me feel?
Aurora Elixirs are sure to make you feel refreshed. Beyond refreshment, every body reacts differently to the natural ingredients that are infused into our beverages. We find that the combination of hemp and hops extracts with our chosen aromatics help to restore balance and release tension in the body. We recommend starting with one bottle of our beverages and noting the sensations you experience to better understand how this and other products containing cannabinoids and hops interact with your individual body.
