Adding CBD to coffee

Posted by Crystal Palace on

Mixing CBD oil with coffee has become an increasingly popular trend over the last few years due to its beneficial effects with caffeine consumers. The two products interact in tandem to produce a holistic effect that enhances their individual properties. Here is why you might want to consider some CBD in your coffee

CBD can help increase the sense of mental alertness you feel when drinking a coffee. Caffeine blocks the effects of adenosine, a neurotransmitter, which progressively builds up in your system during the day and causes you to feel tired. So essentially caffeine makes our body ignore the adenosine and helps us feel more awake

CBD also interacts with adenosine but in a different manner. CBD works with the adenosine receptors in your system to make them work more efficiently which itself lessens the feelings of tiredness. This is due to the adenosine not being able to build up as much due to the receptors working harder. 

Both CBD and coffee work together to keep you more mentally awake and ready to take on the day! 

People across the world have varying tolerances to caffeine. For some it could be as simple as feeling a little more alert but for others caffeine comes with feelings of anxiety and jitters. 

Thankfully one of the most common reasons people turn to CBD is for its anti-anxiety properties. By helping regulate inflammation around the brain (a common trigger for anxiety) and decreasing muscle tension to also regulate the stress inducing functions of our brain, CBD helps mitigate some of the more negative aspects of coffee drinking.

By combining CBD and caffeine the effects last longer. Your liver is responsible for breaking down and eliminating whatever comes into your body. CBD and coffee are both broken down by similar enzymes within your liver which means there is only so much that your body can only process them at a certain rate meaning they stay in your system longer.

All sounds very good right? If a better coffee experience is something you want to try out we recommend adding 5mg - 20mg of CBD oil per cup of coffee or alternatively we have a range of delicious Colombian CBD coffee that’s ready for you to brew at home.
