How to Kickstart Your Morning With CBD Coffee
Coffee drinkers are an avant-garde bunch. From the utilization of milk and sweetener alternatives to the acceptance, then proliferation, of small batch third wave coffee; coffee enthusiasts love to experiment, experience, and grow. So now as CBD—Cannabidiol—crosses the cannabis rubicon into America’s collective consciousness, coffee lovers are co-opting CBD.
What is Cannabidiol?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring component, a cannabinoid, in the cannabis plant. Unlike its better-known cannabinoid family member, Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD does not offer psychoactive effects. Instead, CBD gives access to the many medicinal benefits of cannabis without the traditional high. For those suffering from aches and pains, anxiety, and many more ailments, CBD could be a compelling addition to your daily wellness routine.
CBD & Coffee: The synergy
Coffee, in all its forms, is a daily institution in our lives. America alone consumes 400 million cups of coffee daily served across more than 31,000 coffee shops. Being so ingrained in our daily routine, coffee and CBD are a natural pair. The cardiovascular benefits and type II diabetes protection from coffee combined with the analgesic and calming effects from CBD are an easy way to bolster your daily wellness routine.
How to add CBD to coffee?
There’s no shortage of variety in coffee beans, and that extends to CBD infused coffee beans. With roasters such as Green Roads World, Strava, and Steep Fuze creating CBD beans there's a trove to choose from depending on your preferences. However, some CBD infused coffee beans can be expensive but light on CBD. Don’t fret though! Check out CBD tinctures which can be a flavorless and high dosage additive to almost anything.
