CBD coffee is a new industry trend that tens of thousands of people are trying, and it isn’t hard to see why; coffee is one of the most popular drinks in the world, with over 60% of Americans drinking a cup of coffee every single day. The caffeinated beverage is energizing and delicious, so it is an excellent way to take your daily CBD – but do the two ingredients mix well? And is it actually safe to drink?
Here is everything you need to know about CBD coffee.
What Is CBD Coffee?
CBD coffee is coffee that has been infused with CBD (cannabidiol oil). You can buy pre-infused beans online, or you can make your own at home by mixing CBD oil with your favorite coffee beans.
Is It Safe?
CBD oil hasn’t been approved by the FDA, but the World Health Organization say that it is non-toxic and may come with health benefits. Coffee is approved by the FDA, but mixing the two can seem like a strange idea; after all, wouldn’t the CBD reduce the effect of the caffeine?
The answer is no; in fact, various studies have found that combining coffee with CBD comes with a host of benefits.
The Benefits of CBD Coffee
Various studies have found that CBD oil can help with several health problems. One recent study found that it can help to reduce feelings of anxiety and depression, while another study found that it can help with IBD symptoms. Both of these issues can be exacerbated by coffee, but if you combine coffee with CBD, it actually seems to counter out the negative effects of coffee (such as anxiety and an irritable bowel). And that isn’t all; research also has found that people tend to feel less jittery after drinking CBD infused coffee (when compared to a standard coffee), but they still experience increased energy.
How To Make CBD Coffee
You can easily make your own CBD coffee if you don’t want to buy infused beans. All you need are four ingredients; CBD oil, coffee beans, hot water, and milk (sugar is optional!). The milk is important because CBD is hydrophobic, which means it can’t be mixed with pure water. However, the oil can be combined with milk first, as the oil will bond with the fat in the milk.
Do you have green fingers? If so, you may want to consider buying bulk CBD hemp seeds and making your own CBD oil for coffee. This is often cheaper than buying pre-infused beans, and it makes the process more enjoyable for amateur gardeners. You start by brewing the coffee beans, and then add a few drops of CBD to the milk. How much CBD you add is up to you, but we recommend starting with just a drop or two and seeing how that makes you feel. Mix the CBD and the milk together, and when they have bonded, pour the milk into the coffee. The drink will be fairly milky, which is perfect for latte lovers.
