Background: Who is Bimble?
Bimble Beverages is a New York-based company founded by a bond trader-turned-beekeeper, Jay Moskowitz. Besides being the coolest origin story of any CBD beverage maker we know of yet, Moskowitz’s passion for beekeeping has also influenced his beverage line: Bimble is sweetened with raw honey (we’ll touch more on the drink’s ingredients below).
Moskowitz spoke of his motivation for creating a CBD-infused drink brand with the Beverage Industry Magazine: “I’ve seen firsthand the negative effects that come from relying solely on alcohol to cope with workday and social pressures. I created Bimble to help people manage life’s stressors without impairing their performance or compromising their wellness.”
In fact, this is a theme we’ve seen among CBD-infused drink founders: compare Moskowitz to founder of popular CBD-infused beverage company Vybes, Jonathan Eppers, who was a CEO but left his company due to excess stress.
Like Vybes, Bimble is a quality-first brand, with excellent ingredients and a price to match. We break it down in this review.
Bimble CBD Drink Review
Taste Score: 9.5/10
Does the drink taste bueno or no bueno?
Tastewise, this drink is a huge winner: though it only comes in two flavors, those two flavors are uniquely delicious, with a bit of a mixologist vibe and a rich flavor palette. The two flavors are Grapefruit Basil Mint and Blueberry Lemon Ginger.
One reason these drinks are so tasty is because they’re quite sweet (and it has the sugar content to match), but each flavor has a unique tartness that balances it nicely. We loved both of them.
Value Score: 8/10
How much CBD bang are you getting for your buck?
With a 6-pack costing $39.99, one bottle of Bimble comes in at about $6.5. To those unfamiliar with the CBD drink space that might seem extreme, but we’ve seen a good deal higher. The other factor we consider for the Value section is how much CBD the drink packs: in this case, 25mg of full-spectrum CBD. That’s on the high end for CBD drinks (more commonly, they fall in the 10-15mg range), so that combined with the high-but-not-too-high price gives them a solid value score.
Health score: 9/10
How committed is this brand to health and wellness? We look at all the ingredients.
There’s a lot to like about Bimble healthwise: they use only natural flavors and are sweetened with raw honey. The usage of raw honey as a sweetener is a HUGE plus for us: we’re not the biggest fans of sugary drinks, but raw honey has a host of wonderful health properties itself, so they’ve earned a good Health score.
Relief Score: 9/10
Many of us consume CBD to relieve ailments. Does this product provide effective relief?
In this section, the Remedy Journey team gives a subjective review of how effectively the drink helped us find relief. Most of our team members consume CBD for anxiety or to promote calmness, and we all found that, relative to other CBD drinks, this one does pack a very powerful CBD punch, and we all experienced substantial belief.
What makes this drink special? Does it promote productivity or focus? Does it get one “lit”?
As we said, we do love the inclusion of raw honey as a sweetener, which is fairly unique among CBD drinks, and it does offer a hefty dose of CBD as well. Since there aren’t any other energy, calmness, or productivity-enhancing ingredients in this drink they get an OK X-Factor score.
Final Verdict: 9.2/10
Let’s put it all together: what’s our overall take on this drink?
With well-sourced ingredients, a strong dose of full-spectrum CBD, and delicious flavors, this is definitely one of our favorite CBD-infused drinks. The cost is fairly high but not exorbitant, and they provide the relief (and the taste) to justify the price.
