CBD in Coffee: The Ultimate Combo for Caffeine Junkies
CBD coffee is a new trend among coffee lovers. As the name suggests, this is coffee with CBD (a few drops of CBD oil in most cases). The thought behind it is that you get the beneficial properties of CBD combined with the positive properties of caffeine! This should bring a whole range of unique advantages which we’ll explore in this article.
CBD Coffee: Possible Benefits
Coffee drinkers hope that CBD will prolong the stimulating and activating effects of caffeine. The theory is that the chemical structure of CBD and caffeine are very similar. Both substances dock to the same receptors in the brain and are broken down by the liver. Since the body now has to break down two substances at the same time, the effects of CBD coffee last longer.
But that’s not all:
- Fewer Side Effects
CBD appears to reduce caffeine side effects. For example, CBD can lower heart rate, minimize the blood pressure-increasing effect of caffeine, and improve body awareness. So, CBD coffee may offer a perfect balance between the activating effects of caffeine and the calming effects of CBD.
- Mental Alertness
CBD in moderate doses can increase mental alertness. Because CBD influences the metabolism of neurotransmitters and thus increases our alertness, CBD could theoretically increase the waking effects of caffeine (without increasing the unwanted side effects). In addition, CBD can improve memory and concentration.
- Better Sleep
CBD has a relaxing effect and can lead to better sleep despite the activating caffeine effect. Why is that? CBD stimulates the production of serotonin, which improves general well-being and reduces stress (Read more about how CBD works against chronic stress here). However, you shouldn’t drink CBD coffee before bed; in the afternoon, however, coffee with CBD could be a good choice.
If you want a safe alternative, buy edibles and try them. We’re the best online shop in Australia specializing in selling CBD edibles and products.
Studies on CBD Coffee
There’re still no studies that explicitly deal with CBD coffee. However, both CBD and caffeine have already been studied in isolation – and some similarities have been scientifically confirmed: CBD and coffee reduce free radicals, affect metabolism, interact with the nervous system, and improve mood (by increasing serotonin levels).
In addition, some studies have looked at CBD in treating anxiety, sleep disorders, depression, and other symptoms and illnesses. A positive effect of CBD has been confirmed in many studies. All these effects can also be obtained via CBD edible products. You can buy CBD edibles via our store.
3 Common Questions about CBD Coffee
How Does CBD Coffee Taste?
CBD in coffee can hardly be tasted. With a suitable dosage (don’t use too many CBD drops!), your CBD coffee should taste just like ‘normal’ coffee.
How to Prepare CBD Coffee?
You can make CBD coffee yourself quickly and easily:
- You need CBD oil and freshly brewed coffee. If you want, you can of course also use instant coffee.
- Put a few drops of CBD oil into your coffee and stir until the CBD and coffee are well blended.
- Drink your CBD coffee right away or conjure up a latte macchiato, cappuccino, or any other coffee of your choice.
Who Is CBD Coffee Not Suitable for?
Pregnant, breastfeeding women, children, and young people should definitely discuss CBD intake (whether with or without coffee) with their doctor. Apart from these groups of people, CBD is well tolerated by the vast majority of people. If you want a product with a fixed dose of CBD, though, buy CBD edibles and try them. It’s easy to buy all kinds of CBD products in Australia.
CBD and coffee seem to complement each other in a useful way. Theoretically, CBD can reduce unwanted caffeine side effects while providing a whole host of unique benefits. But it’s also clear: the effect of CBD coffee hasn’t yet been scientifically confirmed. As with any other dietary supplements, the same applies to CBD: give it a try and see how your body reacts. Start with a small dosage and gradually increase your dose as needed.
