Morning coffee, that daily ritual that wakes us up and gives us a reason for living, is now also a major consideration for those who want to chill out big time. Coffee drinks infused with CBD are all the rage because while the non-psychoactive compound won’t get you high, it promotes relaxation — the exact opposite of what your morning caffeine routine is used to providing. CBD also has the power to decrease inflammation, anxiety, bad moods, and a host of other ailments, making it a favorite new superfood.
Here are five CBD infused coffee drinks that will cool you off when the heat is on.

Speaking with Chicago Tribune, Hellion’s co-owner, Ben Houtkamp, said: “We all kind of agreed that CBD makes sense to go with coffee. It kind of sounds counterintuitive at first, but there’s a nice juxtaposition between the two, like getting the caffeine but without any anxiety or jittery-ness, because it can be easy to overdo it with caffeine.” Each bottle, sealed with a green wax stamp imprinted with a marijuana leaf, contains 30mg of CBD.
