Should I Put CBD In My Coffee?

We are drinking more speciality coffee than ever before and CBD-infused coffees are a new and fast going trend. In this article, we will look into the many reasons for and against infusing coffee with CBD.

While it may seem odd that people would want to add a relaxing additive to a stimulating brew of coffee, many coffee-lovers around the world are agreeing that CBD coffee is a great combination.

Reasons Against

No matter how you take your coffee—black, sweet, over ice, or pumpkin spiced, you’re drinking it to absorb the caffeine. You need a pick-me-up. You’re tired and you want to feel energized.

Then there’s CBD, which is well-known for its effectiveness in fighting insomnia and for its calming effects.

When compared with the effects of caffeine, CBD and caffeine are on different sides of the spectrum. It seems that CBD coffee is a liquid contradiction.

For this reason many coffee drinkers switch to decaffeinated coffee to infuse with their coffee, and drink it primarily to relax. In that case, wouldn’t it be better to use caffeine-free tea instead? Some would argue a nice steaming cup of rooibos tea with a drop of CBD would be perfect.

Reasons For

Because there has not been  that much formal research into the combined interactions of CBD and caffeine, the potential benefits of combining the two are largely based on anecdotal evidence, the experiences, and testimony of those who enjoy the potential effects of CBD-infused coffee.

Health and Wellness Benefits

Although CBD is the non-psychoactive extract of the hemp plant, it does have a positive effect on your mood because it mimics the messengers and influence the receptors of the complex communication network that regulates nearly every necessary function in your body, your endocannabinoid system.

It’s because of this ability to interact with your endocannabinoid system, and several significant non-endocannabinoid receptors, that CBD is shown to have so many seemingly non-related potential health and wellness benefits. Similarly, coffee has its own impressive list of health and wellness benefits.

Both coffee and CBD are superfoods. Several compounds in coffee, including caffeine, are powerful antioxidants. Coffee is considered the biggest source of antioxidants in the Western Diet. Antioxidants protect cells and DNA from damage, which supports healing and offers protection against aging. In fact, the U.S. Government owns a patent (US6630507 B1) on “Cannabinoids as Antioxidants and Neuroprotectants.” Cannabinoids like CBD are expected to be particularly helpful for recovery from major brain events like trauma or stroke.

Some People are Quite Sensitive to the Effects of Caffeine

Many CBD enthusiasts find that combining their coffee with the potential mood-regulating properties of CBD balances the negative effects of caffeine.

Because coffee contains a considerable amount of caffeine, many of us feel more alert and focused after indulging in our favorite brew, but not everyone experiences a positive reaction to the stimulating effects of caffeine. Some significant side effects include increased symptoms of anxiety, feeling ‘jittery’, heart palpitations and difficulty sleeping.

Caffeine is a stressor that can trigger the release of the hormone adrenaline in the body.  Adrenaline is what triggers the fight or flight response, promoting stress and anxiety. 

CBD, however, may counteract some of these effects. CBD-infused coffee is stimulating without the edge. CBD and caffeine both interact with adenosine in the body. Adenosine is a calming neurotransmitter that helps the body determine when it’s time to stay awake and when you need more sleep. However, CBD and caffeine have opposite effects on this sleep-cycle chemical. Caffeine blocks the body from being able to feel the sedative effects of adenosine. With CBD, however, early research suggests that CBD may improve the body’s response to adenosine. It seemingly does this by increasing the amount of calming adenosine available for the body to use.

 

Infusing Your Coffee with Getafix CBD Oil

If you are interested in the potential benefits of adding CBD to your coffee, you don’t need to pay steep coffee house prices. You can easily add CBD oil drops to your coffee or any of your favorite brews with Getafix 1000mg CBD Oil Drops.

CBD oil doesn’t mix well with water. For this reason, you need some kind of fat with which the oil can mix with, so it is best to mix into milk/cream before adding it to your coffee.

Cbd should be added after your coffee is brewed to provide maximum potential effects.
