What Is CBD Coffee?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is the non-psychoactive compound found in cannabis that doesn’t contain Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Depending on how it is extracted, CBD is thought to have a range of therapeutic benefits that occur when the CBD interacts with our endocannabinoid system — the system that maintains, regulates and balances our internal processes.
As the name suggests, CBD coffee is coffee that has been infused with Cannabidiol (CBD). Lots of people combine the two by adding a few drops of CBD oil to their regular coffee and drinking it as normal, but you can purchase pre-infused CBD coffee beans, Nespresso pods, and cafetiere, filter and espresso blends. The latter does help you get a more accurate dose, and you can relax in the knowledge that the formula is tested and regulated.
CBD Coffee Benefits
Research suggests that moderate caffeine consumption can have health benefits. This includes,
- Increased energy levels and enhanced performance.
- Protection against neurodegenerative diseases.
- Reduces your chances of heart disease.
- Boosts metabolism and burns fat.
The potential benefits of CBD coffee include,
- Increased energy levels without the adverse effects of caffeine, such as feeling jittery and anxious.
- Reduced stress, and an increased sense of calm and focus.
- Relief from acute and chronic pain and inflammation.
- Better sleep.
Although these aren’t the typical benefits that we’d expect from coffee (in fact, quite the opposite), CBD is thought to balance out the beans — the caffeine stimulates while the CBD soothes, to encourage a sense of equilibrium.
Can You Put CBD in Coffee?
Yes, you can add CBD oil to your coffee. Use a dropper or teaspoon to measure out your regular dosage, and add to your coffee as normal. You will need to mix well and drink it fast, as the oil will separate and rise to the top.
You can also purchase pre-infused coffee and tea. This takes the guesswork out of adding the right amount of oil to your coffee, and often tastes nicer than adding it in yourself — in particular as you won’t experience the separation of the oil and liquid.
Some coffee connoisseurs have experimented with adding CBD at different stages of the coffee-making process. For example, brewing the CBD oil with coffee in a cafetiere, or adding CBD to the syrup or honey that you might use to sweeten your coffee. However you like it, CBD makes a great addition to your regular cup, and can promote a range of health benefits.
