2018 was inarguably the year of CBD: Marijuana’s non-psychoactive, less giggly compound showed up everywhere promising everything from pain relief to anxiety reduction, from LaCroix-esque sparkling water and high-end gumdrops to body lotion and bath salts (not those kind of bath salts). In Las Vegas, cool drinks are always for sale — and now CBD infused drinks are the thing. Where are some places to get these drinks?
