Ola Coffee Lovers! Calm the F**k Down: Vida Café & goodleaf do CBD Beverage Deal

CBD-infused beverages are on the up. Following hot on worldwide trends, the goodleaf flat white at Vida e Caffè was launched late last year, for coffee fanatics to get their fix with a dose of calm. 

“The water soluble CBD sachet proved so popular that we launched it in packs of 20 and now retail these separately. They can be added to any liquid, such as coffee, smoothies or tea. Water soluble CBD has better absorption in the body than an oil because it absorbs more easily into the bloodstream, at a higher dose.” Goodleaf beverage manager Brett Horwitz told Daily Maverick on 5 March 2021.

(See original story here:

Goodleaf, a wellness company dedicated to sharing the benefits of CBD, moved quickly into the market opening a store in Cape Town’s Buitenkant Street store in 2019 . Its first offerings were tinctures, skincare and vapes and then later that year introduced its line of CBD-infused sparkling waters. Horwitz pulled off the deal to introduce this product line into major national retail outlets.

Horwitz, said the four variants – berry hibiscus, mango ginger, peach geranium and aloe rose, all with 8mg of CBD – were seeing month-on-month growth, “with sales even doubling when compared with last year”. The products are sugar, preservative and colourant-free, and have only natural flavours derived from “African botanicals”.

Horwitz says this the cannabis space is one of innovation and goodleaf will shortly launch their CBD-infused health food line, which includes a keto bar.

Besides a kiosk at the V&A Waterfront, they also have a store in Johannesburg’s Parkhurst, which ties into Horwitz’s assertion that their target market is “the yoga-goer, healthy food eater, vegan”. “CBD appeals to such a broad market, from stressed out students to elderly people who have pain or trouble sleeping. So we are aiming at anyone who is switched on”
