Coffee goes through many fads… from frappucinos to oat milk concoctions and pumpkin spice lattes, it seems like each season there is a new coffee beverage to try. But the latest trend, CBD coffee, might just be a trend that's here to stay.
CBD coffee is as straightforward as it sounds: CBD mixed with coffee. The CBD can either be infused during the roasting process or added as CBD oil after the coffee is prepared. CBD coffee can be in the form of drip coffee, a latte, cold brew, or however else you like your morning cup of joe!
Benefits of CBD Coffee
CBD coffee provides the best of both worlds. The coffee gives the caffeine jolt most adults rely on to get energized and motivated in the mornings. But as many have experienced, too much coffee can cause people to feel jittery and anxious- that’s where the CBD can help. CBD is known to reduce anxiety, which can counteract the negative effects of coffee, while also providing a range of other benefits. By infusing coffee with CBD, the energizing benefits of caffeine are balanced by the calming effects of CBD to produce an alert yet tranquil experience.
How to Get CBD Coffee
There are a few ways to try CBD Coffee. One option is to buy a CBD-infused coffee roast from your local coffee shop or online retailer The coffee beans used in commercial roasts are infused with CBD over time to better mask the plant-like taste, resulting in the more traditional coffee flavor we know and love.
However, when first starting out, we recommend making your CBD Coffee by adding your favorite CBD tincture to your morning cup of coffee. This DIY method will allow you to test appropriate dosages to achieve the desired effect.
DIY CBD Coffee
To make your own CBD coffee, simply prepare your favorite coffee before adding drops of CBD tincture. We recommend mixing it in with a spoon or using a frother or blender to fully combine the ingredients.
Many CBD products can alter the taste of the coffee, sometimes drastically. Be sure to find the ratio of coffee to CBD that works for you. We recommend you start small with your CBD dosage and see how the coffee tastes and experience the effects and before building up the dose.
If you’re the type that drinks multiple cups of coffee, you may want to divide that serving by the number of cups you anticipate drinking. This will better mask the taste of the CBD, but you’ll still receive the same benefits.
