A daily routine for most people is drinking a cup of coffee in the morning. However, it can produce negative side effects like - feeling anxious, jitters, increased heart rate, etc. So, it's no surprise that people started adding CBD into their cups of coffee. You may be wondering if adding CBD to your coffee will do anything; here is what you need to know about CBD and coffee.
The Stimulating Effects
It's no secret that coffee has stimulating effects that most of us enjoy; this is the reason why we drink it, after all. This can include a sense of being alert and concentration. Although it sounds nice it can quickly escalate into anxiety and other side effects. Therefore, it only makes sense why people decided to start adding CBD into their coffee. When you're trying to relax you may reach for a CBD Tincture. So, naturally you'll want to add it to your coffee to give it that boost you're looking for. Plus, the added terpenes can make your coffee experience slightly better.
The best way to include CBD into your coffee is by adding a couple of drops in your cup. However, you want to make sure the coffee is not scalding hot. Otherwise you run the risk of burning the CBD, causing it to lose its potency. Instead, try adding a couple of drops after you've added your milk . Or, you could let your coffee cool down before you decide to add a couple of drops. If the coffee is too hot to drink then it's too hot to add CBD. Also, try pairing up different Tincture flavors to your coffee to better the taste. This way you're enjoying your coffee while taking in some CBD at the same time. There are a couple of other popular methods of enjoying CBD with Coffee.
Vaping CBD and Coffee
There are some people who enjoy smoking a cigarette with their coffee. They do this because they feel that it gets their metabolism going. However, you are able to vape some CBD and enjoy a nice cup of coffee at the same time. A good product to try this with is our Active Full Spectrum CBD Pen. This vape pen comes infused with caffeine, full spectrum CBD, and Terpenes. Since coffee already has caffeine, adding more caffeine to the equation can enhance your coffee experience. It might not get you the same effects as smoking a cigarette but it's a great alternative.
Another option that you have is taking CBD drops sublingually. When you finish your cup of coffee you can put some CBD oil under your tongue. This way you can chill with some CBD after you've finished your coffee. You're able to get CBD into your system without spreading it out in a cup of coffee. You'll want to stick to this method if you're the type of person that doesn't tend to finish your coffee. That way you're not leaving behind any CBD.
What Kind of Coffee to Use
With many new companies and cafe's emerging a common question is what kind of coffee to use. Although it's ideal to use a water soluble CBD instead of oil soluble; CBD oil can work great with coffee. A lot of new products offer CBD infused coffee that just requires warm water to enjoy. However, the type of coffee used depends on your preference. For ready made-infused coffee a Keurig cup is probably the best. This is because you know how much CBD you're getting in every cup. However, other infused brands do offer an estimate but won't always be an exact amount. Although these are great, we still would recommend taking your CBD sublingually after you've enjoyed your cup.
If you're like most people who love coffee but hate the way it makes them feel; we recommend trying some CBD with your coffee. This can include adding a couple of drops in your coffee, vaping CBD, or taking it sublingually. If you decide to go with an already infused brand of coffee then we would recommend going with a Keurig. If you don't have a Keurig you can always opt out for different options. However you decide to enjoy it, make sure you're monitoring how much CBD you're taking in.
