Rebelicious Drinks creates first CBD-infused cream soda

Cornwall-based Rebelicious Drinks has created the first ever CBD infused Cream Soda.

Rebelicious Drinks was set up by Cornish couple Tilly and Barry Avriam, who wanted to create a business that did good, and tasted good. All of their ingredients are ethically sourced and organically grown, root to leaf, bud to branch, fresh from Colorado, using fully recyclable packaging, with vegetable inks. Additionally, 5% of all the profits goes to selected environmental charities.

Most drinks cans are only 68% recyclable, and can contribute double the amount of greenhouse gasses than glass bottles. Tilly and Barry wanted to create a company that would reduce this impact and be more environmentally friendly, whilst providing a more fun, unique and exciting option beyond the traditional soft drink. And, according to the brand, a Rebelicious single drink costs less than your daily coconut latte, allowing consumers to tick saving the world off their to do list.

“Cornwall is really starting to feel the pressure of climate change, with rising sea levels and increased intensity of both rain and drought. We are both environmentalists, and wanted to create a business that did good, and helped both the local, and national communities. The product isn’t harmful to the environment, and the CBD is a little taste of something different. We want to use Rebelicious to inspire others to buy more consciously, and make changes that will help tackle climate change. We really do want to bring the eco-rebel out in everyone,” said Tilly Aviram, co-founder of Rebelicious.

Rebelicious drinks are available in two flavours: Cream Soda and Real Cola. The products are vegan, gluten free and eco friendly, containing 11mg of CBD each, and can be found in 70 Sainsbury’s stores across the UK.
