CBD Coffee: Benefits, Effects, And How to Make It

Key Takeaways

  • People mainly drink coffee due to its caffeine content. It may elevate mood, reduce sleepiness, and enhance concentration.
  • CBD in coffee may enhance its relaxing effect without causing sleep disturbances.

Caffeine is the most widely used legal psychostimulant in the world. There is a reason why it is so popular. It is mild, safe, and improves mood instantly. Coffee is the main caffeine source these days. It is the most popular drink.

It is not rare for people to combine coffee with different natural compounds or even substances. Just think of Irish coffee; coffee with some whiskey can completely transform the drink, resulting in a more relaxing effect.

However, unlike alcohol, CBD does not cause such a stark, mind-altering effect. Hence, CBD is an even better choice. So, why not consider including CBD oil in coffee?

When discussing CBD oil coffee, people might raise questions about caffeine. Here, it is vital to understand that caffeine is quite safe. Studies say that about 400 mg of caffeine a day is completely safe, making caffeine even safer than CBD. A cup of regular coffee generally has about 60-70 mg of caffeine, so a few cups of regular coffee a day is good and safe.(1)

Benefits of CBD Coffee

Adding CBD to coffee may result in unique health benefits, from physical wellness to mental clarity. One notable advantage lies in the ability of CBD to mitigate the jitters commonly associated with caffeine consumption. By countering coffee’s stimulating effects with CBD’s calming influence, individuals may experience a smoother and more balanced energy boost.

Moreover, CBD is known for its anti-inflammatory properties, which could complement the antioxidant properties of coffee. This synergy may enhance recovery post-exercise or alleviate discomfort associated with certain inflammatory conditions.

Furthermore, CBD coffee may exert anxiolytic effects, promoting relaxation and stress relief without inducing sedation. This may be especially good for stress management.

Effects of CBD Coffee

Most users report heightened alertness and improved focus when drinking coffee with CBD. However, many might not feel much. After all, for most people, coffee is just a mild stimulant, and CBD is a mild relaxant. So, at the end of the day, combining them may reduce stress and enhance focus. However, any such effect won’t be potent; thus, only some sensitive people might report experiencing something different.

It’s essential to recognise that the interaction between CBD and coffee is complex, with each compound exerting its influence on the body’s endocannabinoid system and neurotransmitter pathways. Consequently, the effects may vary from person to person, necessitating a personalised approach to consumption. Overall, there is a reason to believe that such a combination is healthy.

Moreover, one must understand that FSA recognises both coffee and CBD as foods. Coffee is a part of the traditional European diet, whereas CBD is a Novel Food, which means that FSA is still studying CBD for its effects. Nonetheless, both are considered safe and good for prolonged use and combining different foods is safe and legal.(2)

People often ask, what happens when you mix CBD oil with coffee? Well, do not worry. All you are doing by mixing the two is combining two foods. There is no unforeseen reaction going to happen. Though coffee and CBD are different, they do not neutralise each other. Combining them just creates a unique drink with some unique health effects. For many, it may be just an enjoyable way to use CBD and experience its health benefits.

Overall, such a drink will reduce stress but not cause sleepiness or excitement. Combining the two may be a good idea for those sensitive to caffeine, as CBD may help counter some of the caffeine’s unwanted effects, like its impact on sleep.

Physically active people can also benefit from combining the two. Caffeine is known to boost energy production and increase physical performance a bit. CBD, on the other hand, is better for recovery and controlling muscle aches. Both caffeine and CBD are good for delayed-onset muscle soreness.

The Bottom Line

To sum up, one may mix CBD oil with coffee for some unique experiences and health benefits. If you are against the idea of mixing CBD and coffee, then another way could be CBD vaping and drinking coffee. In fact, many people who vape love enjoying the activity with a cup of coffee, which confirms that CBD and Coffee are safe to combine and mix well with each other.
