The Benefits of CBD Coffee
Mixing CBD oil with coffee has recently become a popular trend, for good reason. There are a number of benefits that come from combining these two substances, giving us the best of both benefits. Not only does it enhance the positive effects of caffeine, but it reduces the unwelcomed side effects. Continue reading to learn about the power of both CBD and caffeine, the top benefits of combining the two substances, and how to properly mix CBD oil into your coffee to create the ideal drink.
About the two powerful substances
Let’s start with caffeine, the most popular substance in the world, responsible for the powerfully energising effects of your everyday coffee. It helps us wake up, stay up, and get sh!t done throughout the day. It allows us to us focus intently, improves our physical performance, and provides countless health benefits. You can read up on all the benefits caffeine provides here. Unfortunately for some people who are more sensitive to caffeine, it can also cause negative side effects such as anxiousness, increased heart beat, and jitteriness. That’s where the magic of CBD comes in.
CBD is a natural cannabinoid that is derived from cannabis plants. It doesn't contain THC, the ingredient that creates the high feeling from the cannabis plant. CBD is usually sold in the form of oil-based capsules, vaporised liquids, extracts, and infused in many other products such as food, drinks (commonly coffee), and beauty products. Mixing CBD oil with coffee allows the caffeine to do its job even better while eliminating the unwanted side effects. This is due to the anxiety relieving effects, enhanced mental alertness, concentration, clarity, and many more benefits that come from CBD. We’ll dive into the full benefits of combining the two substances.
For now, just imagine the power of combining a premium, all-natural, highly caffeinated coffee with the highest quality organic CBD oil there is. Later on we explain the extra benefits that come from mixing Black Insomnia coffee and Milagro CBD oil.
Enhanced Mental Alertness
When you add CBD oil to your coffee, the feeling of mental alertness that you get from the caffeine is actually further enhanced. This is a result of the CBD interacting with the key neurotransmitters that are responsible for producing these effects. For example, caffeine blocks the drowsiness effects that come from adenosine, preventing it from doing its job. When CBD oil interacts with adenosine, it’s able to directly increase the effectiveness of its receptors. Furthermore, CBD oil provides other mental benefits through its interaction with our serotonin levels, which are responsible for making us feel happy and motivated. This, combined with the mood lifting effects of caffeine, gives us the ultimate mental boost we need.
CBD works wonders to counteract those unwanted side effects of caffeine, especially to alleviate feelings of anxiety. CBD oil is widely known as an effective anxiety reducer. There are several reasons for this. First, CBD causes extensive relaxation in the nervous system by increasing the GABA activity. It helps control our response to stress by regulating the hypothalamic function in the brain. It also eases tension by relaxing our muscles and stops neuroinflammation in the brain, which is one of the underlying causes of anxiety. Combining caffeine with all these anti-anxiety effects has been proven to reduce the anxiousness that caffeine can cause.
Increased Duration Of Benefits
When CBD oil is combined with caffeine, the duration of the effects from both substances increases, allowing us to enjoy the benefits of both for longer. Here’s the science behind it. The liver uses CYP enzymes to take apart many compounds that are found in our bloodstream to eliminate them. Since cannabidiol (in CBD) and caffeine (in coffee) both contain enough similarities in their structure, they require the same enzymes found by the liver. However, the liver can only metabolise so much. So, the increase in compounds from the addition of the CBD and caffeine causes the liver to get backed up. It’s like a rush hour situation where traffic is slowed down due to a high volume of cars. In this case, traffic to the liver is slowed down, meaning the two powerful compounds get to stay there for more time, leaving longer lasting benefits for us!
Proper Ways To Mix CBD and Coffee
There are a number of ways you can add CBD into your coffee. A commonly used way to mix it is simply by adding a few drops of CBD oil into already brewed coffee and drinking it as you usually would. To do this yourself, make your usual coffee and add your preferred milk or sugar. Then, we recommend adding in a few drops (around 15mg) of CBD oil into your cup. Mix it together and there you go with your jitter-free caffeine kick! If you want to take it up a notch, you can also infuse it into your coffee granules. This may be a more effective method due to the longer time given to secure onto the granules. To do this, first grind your coffee beans and place them into a cafetiere. Add hot water to it along with the CBD oil (a few drops). Then just wait a few seconds before brewing it up.
What's the right amount of CBD oil to add? We’d suggest 15-20mg. Everyone is different and there are many factors such as weight, metabolism rate, and genetics that should be taken into consideration. That’s why you should start with a smaller amount and increase the dosage until you find what’s best for you.
