I have been scouring this forum and Google, and haven't found this mentioned anywhere, as it's a relatively new product. Are Recess drinks allowed? Specifically, the Peach Ginger flavor, as it has the fewest ingredients: Filtered Water, Peach Concentrate, Peach Juice Concentrate, Peach Juice Nectar, Organic Ginger, Schisandra Powder, Ginseng Powder, L Theanine Powder, Full Spectrum Hemp Oil (10mg). My reasons for asking are the hemp oil and "sugar." I also included a photo of the nutrition information. Re: Full Spectrum Hemp Oil. I'm personally not into CBD products, but have had these prior to my Whole30 and appreciated the mild calming affect they had on me during particularly anxious days. I have struggled with clinical depression/anxiety in the past, and eventually went off medications due to negative side effects. I only bring this up to mention that no, a doctor did not prescribe this sparkling water to me, but it does help when I can't slow down my brain/heart rate with simply a walk in fresh air, etc. I was a regular/nightly wine drinker and this was something I endeavored to work on with this Whole30 (my first in many years). While I definitely don't want to replace one substance with another, I honestly don't see this as anywhere equivalent to my enjoyment of red wine, and isn't something I ever drank with any sort of regularity as it makes me drowsy (again - a last resort when anxiety/focus is bad). Re: Total Sugars. Is it referring to the concentrate and nectar when mentioning "Includes 3g of Added Sugars?" They can't add sugar and not list it in the ingredients, can they? It is about as "sweet" as LaCroix, so it's not doing anything for my sugar dragon... Anyway, would love to hear someone else's thoughts on this. Thanks!
