Get a Jump on Winter Sports with CBD for Athletes


When the first snowflake hits the pavement, it gives us the same kinda feeling we get when we score a front row parking spot at the mountain on a busy weekend! Time to earn your turns. Whether you’re a backcountry enthusiast or in for an easy-going groomed trail, have more fun in the snow by taking supremely good care of the basics with CBD for athletes by athletes. 

Mountain Gear Check Featuring MCT Oil Squeeze Packs

You don’t need Mother Nature to remind you that you should always go prepared (she tends to be harsh about it). Instead, consider this a friendly reminder to pack your gear bag with a few extra items. May we suggest an extra beanie or neck gaiter for the frigid temps?

Winter is hard on the body, especially if you have old injuries. Luckily, our MCT Oil squeeze packs were made for the side of the mountain! Move through the winter sports season like a well-oiled machine with this CBD for athletes product. Pack your gear bag with MCT oil for that top-up on self-care when the mountain sends it right back.

Keep It Loose with Muscle Rub: Our Most Popular CBD For Athletes

Our friend Ross swears by our  Muscle Rub (available in a handy 2 oz size for on-the-go) after traversing massive ridgelines, climbing up steep creek banks on his snowmobile, and flying off jumps at 30mph. He takes care of tight knees and sore shoulders with our soothing CBD topical muscle rub, the perfect salve after an all-day mountain sesh. 

Our Muscle Rub packs a punch with 500mg of CBD and 23 essential oils. It’s also available in these fun little squeeze packs for single use, made for the on-the-go, so you don’t miss any part of your adventure! Prevent cracked or dry skin with the moisturizing benefits of organic aloe leaf juice to care for your body exactly as you should.

Get Your Last Run In (Just Don’t Call it) and Apres-Ski with Ablis

Go further with Ablis in your bag and find your flow down the mountain. It’s no secret that taking good care of the basics will help you enjoy the winter sports you love even more. But we’ve got one last suggestion for your CBD essentials winter kit. If Apres-Ski parking lot beers are your thing, skip the hangover with an Ablis CBD Drink in hand. Choose from bold flavors like Cranberry Blood Orange and Zingy Lemon Ginger to keep the mountain high going for as long as possible! 

Get Winter Sport Ready with CBD for Athletes

Winter is full of opportunities for adventures, even in the cold. Shop Ablis CBD and make your recovery days count so you can get back out there and shred. Never slow down is our motto: that’s why we’ve designed our products for on-the-go outdoor conquests and lodge hangs too. Explore pure hemp CBD topicals, oils, and drinks, and stay moving!  


Fall-Inspired CBD Mocktails For Your Health


Here for a good time without the buzz? These CBD mocktails are sure to get you in the spirit for all things change of seasons, regardless if you are a Pumpkin Spice lover or hater (we’ll take a poll later). There’s plenty to love about alcohol-free mixed drinks, regardless of your reason for abstaining. And you already know we have some killer recipes up our sleeves that include your favorite CBD products. But if this is your first time experiencing a CBD mocktail, here’s a little guide to get you up to speed just in time for Sober October. 

Why CBD Mocktails? (or Functails as We Call Them)


If you’re looking for good vibes without the expense of alcohol or the risk of hangovers, CBD mocktails could be the answer. These sippable drinks deliver all the benefits of CBD while enjoying all of your favorite fall festivities. Not to mention, they’re so delicious you won’t even miss the booze. Curated with our favorite fall flavors, these drinks are meant for pulling out at a bar top to impress your sober-curious friends with your showstopping mixology skills. 

CBD Ginger Mule Mocktail with Cardamom Sugar

To all the spicy ginger fans out there—we see you. A sprinkle of cardamom sugar for intrigue, black pepper for sass, and sea salt lends a fun balance of opposites for this spice-forward fall kick-off. Enjoy this at a tailgater and bring more to share (you’ll have guaranteed taste-testers.)



  • 1 TBSP white sugar 
  • Ground cardamom to taste (a little goes a long way)
  • 1 Pinch black pepper
  • 1 Pinch of sea salt


  • Finely chop candied ginger with a knife
  • Combine candied ginger, Ablis Lemon Ginger, and ice in a glass, lightly swirl and set aside
  • Mix a dash of cardamom, a pinch of sea salt, and a pinch of black pepper into the sugar ( or make ahead in a portable container if you’re on the go) 
  • Pour the sugar and spice mixture onto a plate
  • Wet the rim of your glass with a dampened paper towel, and dip it into the sugar mixture
  • Use a filter to strain your ginger concoction as you pour it into the rimmed glass 

CBD Cranberry Sour Mocktail

Cranberry, ice, and everything nice with this remix of an old favorite. This drink favors the sour tanginess of cranberry with a mild vanilla finish. It’s the perfect cool-down transition out of the summer months without even noticing it.


  • 6oz Cran-Blood Orange
  • .5 oz vanilla syrup
  • ½ lime, squeezed
  • Ice (if you wish) 
  • A few frozen cranberries for garnish
  • Twist of orange rind (if you’re feelin’ fancy)


  • Pour the vanilla syrup into your tumbler
  • Add Ablis and lime juice and stir
  • Add ice (we prefer crushed)
  • Float the garnishes on top, transfer the drink into a glass and enjoy!

CBD Strawberry Mint Pimm’s Cup 

If your version of fall is slipping into the season cool as a cucumber, then this is the drink for you! While strawberry is a fruit-forward memory of summer, this twist on a Pimm’s Cup is jumbled with cooling savory garnishes of mint and cucumber, ideal for that final paddle on the river. I mean, it’s still too warm for sweater weather anyway, right?


  • 6oz Ablis Strawberry Mojito
  • 1 cup crushed ice
  • ½ oz lemon juice, freshly squeezed 
  • A few thin slices of cucumber
  • Fresh mint leaves


  • Add a few mint leaves to the bottom of a tumbler and muddle
  • Pour the crushed ice into a tumbler 
  • Add Ablis and give it a light swirl
  • Float a few thin slices of cucumber on top (why not)
  • Transfer the drink into a glass and top it off with another mint sprig!

Let the Good Times Flow with a Functail

No stress if you didn’t find a recipe here that suited your palate! Here at Ablis, we’re all about you doing what makes you happiest. Try experimenting with your own CBD mocktail recipes, or as they are known around here, functails. Your body will thank you for that extra hit of Vitamin C, fresh juice flavor, and Emulsified Hemp CBD concentrate in your glass. If you’re taking some time away from alcohol for your health but don’t want to miss out on the familiar cold-drink feel of your favorite cocktail, consider using our Keto and Paleo-approved MCT Oil concentrate as a base for any of the drinks you enjoy and create your own.

CBD-Infused Drinks: Your New Summertime Go-To

This summer feels like emerging from an extra-long hibernation—and we plan on taking advantage of it! That means weekend adventures, spontaneous trips, and exploring our outdoor playground as often as we can. But it also means knowing when to take it easy and reset. If you’re adventuring this summer, here’s why you should make CBD-infused drinks your new go-to. 

What Are CBD-Infused Drinks? 

CBD is extremely versatile and can be infused in anything from gummies to beauty products. CBD-infused drinks are simply drinks with, you guessed it, some form of CBD added. At Ablis, we use emulsified hemp CBD in our sparkling drinks and shots. As we’ve discussed in past blogs, this hemp-derived CBD doesn’t contain THC, so it won’t make you high. But we take it a step further by only using CBD isolate, which is nothing but pure, 100% CBD. 

We take testing seriously when it comes to all of our CBD products, including our refreshing CBD-infused drinks. We start by sourcing from credible and licensed hemp processors who are as local as possible. Then, we send our CBD to third-party labs (with state licensing and national accreditation) for purity and pesticide testing. And if they don’t meet our standards, they don’t make it into your hands. Period. 

From there, we can get to creating our CBD products, including the fan-favorite beverages that pack a punch of flavor and potency. And we don’t know about you, but the knowledge that our drinks (and all our products) are safe to consume makes them all the sweeter. 

Our Favorite Ways to Add CBD Infusions Into Your Routine 

We always say that summer is the perfect time to try new things. So the next time you’re headed out to the river or the trail, consider taking our CBD infusions along for the ride. 

If you need some inspiration, try… 

…A pack of Cranberry Blood Orange on your next camping trip. 

Ablis Cranberry Blood Orange naturally infused sparkling beverages are sure to zing up your camping trip. The blend of classic and bold flavors is our most popular for a reason—and its zingy hit is offset by the 25mg of emulsified hemp CBD. 

We love to take this particular flavor for those in-between moments like sitting by the lake after a day of kayaking or while grilling up hotdogs or roasting marshmallows. If this flavor doesn’t quite grab you, our other bold sparkling beverages include Strawberry Mojito and Lemon Ginger

…Throwing a Strawberry Mojito Shot in your backpack before a hike or bike ride. 

Ablis shooters are perfect for anyone on the go. They’re a no-fuss, give-it-to-me straight alternative to slowly sipping on CBD-infused drinks—which is why we love them for a day of adventuring. If you’re planning to hit the trails this summer, we recommend the Strawberry Mojito Shot, which tastes like summer vacation in a bottle and delivers 10mg of pure hemp CBD. 

This particular flavor is one of our most popular—especially in the summertime—but we also carry Cranberry Blood Orange and Lemon Ginger if those are more your style. Our shooters are sold in packs, so you can share the fun with friends or pick an adventure for each one this summer. 

…Or sipping on a refreshing Lemon Water at a BBQ with friends. 

Our naturally infused sparkling waters contain the same amount of CBD (25mg) as our bold flavors, but without the added calories. Naturally sugar-free, bright lemon is the star of our Lemon Water beverage and, we think, perfect for lazy summer days. 

These low-calorie alternatives come in Berry Lime Water and Blood Orange Water as well, so you can’t really go wrong. If you want to really spice things up for a summer BBQ, try using these CBD-infused drinks in functails or cocktails.     

Shop Ablis CBD-Infused Drinks and More 

With exciting flavor combinations, refreshing finishes, and trusted sourcing, there’s really no way to go wrong with our CBD-infused drinks. And now that the summer months are once again changing the landscape of our outdoor playgrounds, we know these options make the perfect mid-morning break or after adventure finish. Explore all our CBD products or try a sample pack to make the most of those delicious summer moments.

How Ablis Gives Back To Help The Planet (And How You Can Help Too)

If you’ve been following us for a while, you might have noticed we’re kind of into the whole nature thing. In fact, Ablis got its start on the trails, slopes, and rock faces right here in Central Oregon. But the outdoors aren’t just our playground. Here at Ablis, we’re excited to share a company culture that’s built around being stewards of the earth and protecting our wild spaces. 

We’re dedicated to being a leave-no-trace, environmentally friendly, pack-it-in/pack-it-out kind of place. And to celebrate Earth Day 2022, we’re teaming up with the Conservation Alliance to help give back to the planet.

Our Partnership With The Conservation Alliance

Ablis first joined The Conservation Alliance (TCA) in 2021 as part of our commitment to protecting the natural spaces that make life more of an adventure. TCA is an incredible organization on a mission to fund and advocate for the protection of North America’s wild places. We love their vision of a planet where wild places, wildlife, and people thrive together.

As TCA members, we get to put our money where our mouth is and help where we can. Plus, it’s an awesome opportunity to connect with like-minded companies that genuinely want to make a difference. Together, we’re helping fund the essential work of grassroots environmental organizations. 

Help Us Give Back This Earth Day 2022

Want to stock up on your favorite CBD products and help us make the world a better place? For Earth Week (April 17-23) we’re donating 5% of revenue from website sales to our friends over at The Conservation Alliance.

Other Ways We’re Helping the Planet

Of course, we know it takes more than one day a year to make a real difference, especially when it comes to conservation. That’s why we work every day of the year to make the world a better place. When you choose Ablis for your favorite CBD infusions, you’re supporting a company that: 

Believes in paid volunteer days. We need healthy, happy people to have a healthy, happy planet. And there’s nothing quite like volunteering to give both mind and body a major boost. So we support our team’s ability to give back to the community through paid volunteer days.  

Prioritizes recyclable materials. From the vendors we partner with to the materials that go into our packaging, recyclability is always our highest priority. Our aluminum cans and kegs are almost infinitely recyclable. In fact, according to Keep America Beautiful, “In as few as 60 days, the aluminum can that contains your favorite beverage may have been manufactured, filled, sold, recycled, and remanufactured.”

Has partners that value sustainability. You can tell a lot about somebody by the company they keep. And the same is true for, well, actual companies. Both Ablis CBD and Crater Lake Spirits, founded by Jim Bendis, share the same spirit of sustainability. The bulk of our production comes from Crater Lake Spirit’s resource-efficient facilities. From closed-loop cooling systems that conserve water to energy-efficient buildings and sustainable ingredient farming practices, they’re all in on protecting resources. 

Giving Back On Earth Day 2022 (and Beyond)

As a team of bikers, hikers, and outdoor enthusiasts, it just makes sense that we’re committed to keeping our wild places beautiful for generations to come. With our partnerships, packaging, and policies, we’re dedicated to making the world a better place. Don’t forget to help us out this Earth Day! Shop now or donate to our fundraising campaign.
