2 CBD Remixed Cocktails You Need To Try
This curiosity led her to find Amanda Goetz, founder of House of Wise, a company that sells high-quality CBD products. After navigating a divorce, raising three kids alone, and balancing her career as a marketing VP, Amanda turned to CBD and found that her life was significantly changed. Her passion became breaking the stigma behind cannabis products and empowering women to take control of their sleep, sex and stress. We interviewed Amanda to learn more about CBD and how it’s helped her as a woman handling life. Inspired to try CBD in new ways, Amy also tested out some of Amanda’s products in a few cocktail recipes, shared below!
Why focus on sex, sleep and stress? Do you think these three areas are where many women struggle?
Sex, sleep and stress are foundational elements of our life. If we can’t get them under control, then we can’t enjoy many other aspects of our life because we don’t have the right amount of energy. Many women still put other people’s needs before their own, and while that is a great trait in terms of making us amazing caretakers, if we always put our bosses, our kid’s or our family’s needs before ours, we come last. I see CBD as a massive opportunity for women like me who just want to be able to handle everything coming at them.
Prior to HoW, you had never tried cannabis products, but then turned to CBD out of desperation - can you describe the calm and focus it provided during a difficult time in your life?
I use cannabis in two ways, proactively and reactively. If I’m about to go into a board meeting that normally wouldn’t phase me, but I just got off the phone with my divorce lawyer or from running three kids around the city, I might take a stress gummy proactively before that meeting. Reactively, I use the sleep gummies at night right before my bath, and I know from that point on, my electronic devices are off and I’m unwinding from the day. I often take the sex gummies in the evening as well - because we as women tend to create a lot of excuses as to why we don’t want sex simply because we aren’t the right headspace. CBD helps us be intentional, allowing us to make time for our sexuality and sexual health.
What’s always on your bedside table?
Night Owl or Early Riser?
I’m actually neither, I’ve been loving going to bed early and sleeping in late in the mornings. Before the pandemic, I used to be an early riser and workout every morning, but this year I’ve really just been enjoying snuggling my three year-old in the mornings.
Amy’s 2 Favorite CBD Remixed Cocktails:
• 1 part gin (she loves tanqueray or blue coat)
• 1 part campari
• 1 part sweet vermouth
• 1 drop of CBD oil (was plenty!)
“It was a full body relaxation and was a little more intense than I expected - I suggest not ordering this out in public, at least for myself, but it totally worked for a night of watching Jenna Lyon’s show on HBO from the comfort of my couch!” - Amy
Tip: Keep vermouth in the fridge and it can last a month or 2 - but only get the little bottle, Amy has NEVER finished a big bottle!
CBD Gin + Tonic
• 1 ½ ounces of gin
• 3 ½ ounces of tonic water
• ¼ ounce of lime juice
• 15 mg of CBD oil
“I love the idea of making a mocktail that has a little bit of a mind-altering effect. From my research it seems there are a few things to account for: many mixologists suggest using low alcohol spirits so you can feel the effects of the CBD more clearly and there is a grapefruit warning (so stick to limes and lemons instead).” - Amy
