Let’s face it, America loves coffee. 80% of Americans consume coffee and jittery potty breaks be damned we need it to start the day, get through the middle of the day and yes even as a nightcap. For millions, that pleasure also increases their anxiety. Coffee’s natural rewards are a natural antioxidant and an aroma that is calming. It is no wonder that there are coffee flavors of nearly everything from coffee candy to coffee ice cream and the classic coffee shop all over the place. One of the newest things to add to coffee is CBD. The current market is evolving with CBD-infused coffee beans and CBD coffee pods (Keurig style) and while the science is still out on what percentage of CBD is absorbed through those mediums, the demand is high and ever increasing.
Looking for ways to start your day with coffee and CBD? We’ve got two of our favorite combos below!
Chasing Your CBD With A Cup
Tinctures taken sublingually or CBD that is vaped continue to be some of the most bioavailable ways to ingest CBD. If maximizing efficacy is your primary focus, take that CBD Tincture or your CBD Vape Oil first, before brewing up and enjoying your favorite cup. This will get the CBD into your system ahead of the coffee and begin to get your Endocannabinoid System activated before the anxiety and coffee jitters can take hold.
Drip It In
We understand that sublingual tinctures aren’t for everyone. Some users can’t stomach the taste or texture, and that’s OK. While the bioavailability is reduced, CBD is still very prevalent when added to a beverage or food. Simply use your CBD Tincture to drop your CBD Oil into your coffee cup, stir, and enjoy. Want to flavor it up a bit too? Receptra and Blue Moon Hemp have natural Berry flavors, and Populum features cold-pressed orange oil.
Pure Cold Brew
For those who have experienced Cold Brew Coffee, there’s little to explain. It’s low in acid and very antioxidant rich, largely due to the fact that without heat involved in the coffee making process, there is less extraction of chlorogenic acid, an antioxidant your body uses to fight disease and aging. Cold Brew also works as an excellent base for spiced up coffee blends and Pinterest recipes. One of the easiest ways to infuse CBD into cold brew is with CBD Isolate powder. This 99% pure CBD substance can help to even a cold brew out without opting for a decaf blend.
In many ways coffee and CBD share many similar attributes while balancing each of their negatives as well. Maybe you need to work but you need CBD to help the aching bones get going. Love coffee’s energy boost but hate the anxiety or jitters? CBD and coffee is something new you can try.
