We’re lucky that Hipster Hamper gets to work with some of the very best food and drink suppliers in the UK. We can’t stop shouting about just how brilliant these guys are and we want the rest of the world to know it too!
Our supplier spotlight this week is on Intune.
You might have seen their funky looking van at an event or market near you where the Intune team mix up tasty cocktails blended with their CBD infused mixers. As well as non-alcoholic mixers, the brand is home to the original range that features 3 incredible soft drinks in delicious flavours like grapefruit and mint, pomegranate and ginger and elderflower and hops (yum).
So, why do we love them?
There’s been a lot of talk about CBD in recent years but in case you’re still confused about what it is or how it works, CBD stands for cannabidiol which is a non-psychoactive compound found in cannabis and hemp plants. These plants are packed full of ‘cannabinoids’ of which CBD is just one.
While CBD comes from the hemp plant which is part of the Cannabis Sativa family it’s not the same thing as weed or marijuana and certainly won’t get you high. Intune’s CBD doesn’t contain any THC which is the psychoactive compound found in marijuana.
When you take CBD it interacts positively with the endocannabinoid system in the human body. Endocannabinoids are made by our own bodies and the endocannabinoid system appears to regulate lots of things in the body like mood, memory and sleep as well other things like liver function and the reproductive system.
What are the benefits of taking CBD?
There are lots of benefits to CBD and the guys over at Intune explain that their drinks can help balance the mind, keep you feeling focused and promote a feeling of calm - something many of us with our busy schedules and hectic lifestyles are in short supply of these days.
Intune is helping to make the world a better place
As well as helping us all to chill out and stay focused, Intune is helping the planet too. Their cans are made from 70% recycled materials that can be reused and recycled again and again. They don’t contain any weird or nasty flavourings and all of their botanical and fruit extracts come from actual fruits and herbs. Oh, and did we mention they’re 100% vegan too?
Why you should add Intune to your next hamper
We can’t get enough of Intune’s drinks and we think they make the perfect addition to any hamper. Not only do they taste great and make you feel good, but their cans look pretty cool too with geometric patterns in colours that pop.
