FAQs

What is cold brew?

Cold brewed coffee is coffee brewed without heat (using a long brew time of up to 24 hours to replace heat in extracting flavour from the ground coffee), rather than hot coffee that has been cooled.
Because no heat is used cold brewed coffee is naturally lower in acidity (making it easier to digest), and has a sweeter, fuller flavour.
 
What is CBD?
 
CBD stands for cannabidiol - one of the main cannabinoids found in cannabis. These cannabinoids all work with your body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS) to regulate and improve mental focus, muscle recovery and cell rejuvenation. 
Our bodies have evolved to interact with cannabis on a molecular and biological level (we even produce our own cannabinoids), and there are lots of plants which also feature cannabinoids, like maca, hops, chilli, black pepper and turmeric.
There is a growing body of evidence for the number of health benefits hemp, cannabis and specifically CBD has both as a food supplement and for its medicinal properties.
 
How much CBD is there in High Tide?
 
There are ~5mg of CBD per 250ml bottle. 
 
What is the endocannabinoid system?
 
The endocannabinoid system is a system of receptors found throughout your body and brain which helps to regulate systems within your brain, central nervous system, organs and immune system.
The ECS has many different types of receptors all designed to bind specifically with particular cannabinoids which help them function. 
Microdoses of CBD can help your body’s ECS build and strengthen, helping you maintain all those essential biological functions associated with great health.
 
How many High Tides can I drink a day?
 
Because of the high caffeine content we recommend just sticking with one.
 
Will I get high?
 
No, CBD is a non-psychoactive component of cannabis and can actually be used as an anti-psychotic (to minimise psychoactive effects). Our CBD has also been filtered to completely remove the THC. 
 
Is CBD safe?
 
Yes, CBD is completely safe, however is is always important to ensure that you get is from a reputable source (such as a member of the Cannabis Traders Association), and to check with a medical professional if you are unsure if it is right for you.
You should always try to source organic CBD (like ours) as cannabis plants can filter toxins from the soil. 
 
When is the best time to drink High Tide?
 
We love to smash a cold one just before a surf or ride as they are really the ultimate energy drink - you get a great boost of energy and stamina, with a calm focus, and the low acidity means that they are easily digested. Try one instead of your morning coffee for a great start to your day, as a pre/mid/post workout drink, or anytime you feel you need an energy boost.
 
Are there any allergens in High Tide?
 
No, we just use the three natural ingredients of coffee, hemp and water - making High Tide suitable for vegans, gluten free, sugar free, and suitable for pretty much everyone!
