Holistic Medicine is a cocktail that was submitted to us by a local mixologist in Denver, CO and a member of the Cannabis Cocktails Collective. It’s her take on a popular mixed drink using ingredients commonly found in Ayurvedic medicine, focusing on the elements of Golden Milk which are turmeric, ginger, and black pepper. It’s said that these ingredients have anti-inflammatory and soothing properties when used together, so along with the CBD and cannabinoids found in the Ginja it’s not hard to imagine how this drink might be considered “holistic medicine”.
