How OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder Discovered a New Creative Outlet With His CBD Beverage, Mad Tasty

“In 2016, I was overworked and burnt out. I traveled several hundred thousand miles across every continent that year in about six months. I was totally fried and couldn’t recharge by seeing my family or take a break. I wasn’t sleeping…and for the first time I started having panic attacks and feeling depressed.”

MAD TASTY founder and lead singer of OneRepublic, Ryan Tedder

Before creating MAD TASTY, Ryan felt the anxiety-weighted pressure of life that we are all handed to from time to time. In 2020, those feelings became more universal than ever before.

It feels odd, or maybe even a little insincere, to speak on anything in life right now without mentioning the ever-standing elephant in the room of COVID. It also would be a missed opportunity to speak on it and not touch on the lessons it is creating. While “normal” life feels long ago and still a long way away, we have been given an opportunity to pause and reflect on day-to-day moments. No matter what life throws at us, we have learned, this year, about resilience, self-reflection, and valuing our creative outlets.

Ryan, whether it be 2016 or 2020, has found an outlet of creativity in MAD TASTY.

MAD TASTY is a clean, restorative, and hydrating beverage infused with 20 MG broad spectrum hemp extract. It’s tasty, refreshing, clean, and void of the bitter aftertaste of traditional hemp beverages.

“I had always believed in clean living. I did significant research on functional ingredients and started dosing with CBD and discovered that it quelled my anxiety and helped me feel centered. Inspired by my new discovery and the need to hydrate during my rigorous tour schedule, I worked with a team of experts in beverage, hemp-derived CBD and technology to develop a new brand of sparkling water infused with hemp called MAD TASTY.”

While this year continues to throw curve balls at all of us, MAD TASTY’s hemp-forward formula is here to help us smooth out the bumps along this journey.

The benefits of the hemp plant have been documented and experienced for thousands of years to promote biological, energy and immune balance. How? The hemp plant contains hundreds of naturally occurring cannabinoids, including CBD, that interact with a series of receptors in the body known as the endocannabinoid system. Only more recently in the subject of intense biological research, the endocannabinoid system is considered one of the most important systems in our body. It regulates a wide range of physiological processes, including stress and mood, digestion, appetite, metabolism, immunity, inflammatory response, bone health, skin health, respiratory health and sleep.

MAD TASTY not only benefits you with high-quality ingredients and thoughtful development, but also gives back. The brand is partnered with Drop4Drop, an organization that believes everyone, everywhere has the right to clean drinking water. For every 12 ounces of MAD TASTY sold, the brand donates 12 ounces of clean drinking water to people and places in need.
