What Are The Benefits Of Mixing CBD And Coffee?

If you’re healthy and simply want your morning fix, but are just a little on edge, CBD coffee is likely right up your alley.

In a nation where over 80% of its residents drink coffee, it’s no wonder that we run on caffeine and anxiety. What if the anxiety part could be mitigated, though? Cannabidiol (CBD) coffee could be just the ticket to calming those nerves while still getting you nice and buzzy.

There are a few properties to coffee that make it the drink of choice for so many. For one thing, the aroma actually has anti-anxiety properties. Its rich smell just makes us feel good, which can also help to relieve nervousness. Also, coffee is a natural antioxidant. 

The benefits of CBD are also well known, though controversial. It’s understood that CBD is an anti-inflammatory, anti-seizure medicine that’s good at combating depression and anxiety. However, without other cannabinoids — even THC in low doses — CBD isn’t as effective. It still performs, just at a lower rate. Additionally, it needs to be taken consistently to really work any wonders.

CBD can be ingested in many ways besides dropping tincture into coffee or getting CBD fueled coffee pods or packages. There are vape pens, gummies, capsules, and tincture, to name just a few. But any of these methods can be implemented at the same time as a cup o’ Joe, thus also interacting with the coffee and mellowing it out a tad.

Really, CBD coffee is the ultimate combination (except CBD/THC coffee, that takes the cake!). For one thing, because CBD is known to be calming and even to make one sleepy, it combines with the caffeine to even you out, even after that third cup. In fact, if you’re drinking three cups of coffee, combining them with CBD or even a little weed is highly recommended.

To reiterate, if you are suffering from a serious medical condition, putting CBD isolate into your coffee isn’t the ultimate way to get your CBD therapy; you’ll need to consult with a CBD and entourage effect expert for that. However, if you’re healthy and simply want your morning fix, but are just a little on edge, CBD coffee is likely right up your alley. Wake up and smell the cannabinoid/caffeine combo!
