CBD Coffee: A Healthy New Addiction
When you sip that first cup of coffee in your morning, you probably think of it as a vital ingredient to starting your day off successfully.
While some people feel that they don’t function well without that shot of caffeine in their morning or midday coffee break, after mealtime, or even bedtime, others dream of enjoying coffee but can’t handle the caffeine and its side effects. Ah, caffeine, the stimulant that wakes you up and gets you feeling perky.
With the new buzz out there about combining coffee and CBD, you might be asking yourself, is this for real? Is this combination even safe? How does that work? To understand more about this popular new sensation in coffee drinking, let’s break down what CBD is.
What is CBD Oil?
CBD stands for Cannabidiol and is an active element of marijuana, also known as cannabis. When used in its pure form, without other added ingredients or additional cannabis components, CBD is not addictive. You won’t get high, and there are no psychoactive effects! In fact, it is known for having a relaxing and calming effect.
Benefits include a deeper, more restful sleep, pain relief, and alleviation of anxiety and depression. Another added benefit is that CBD helps boost your immune system. The World Health Organization has released its findings on CBD, stating that it is a substance considered safe for human consumption and has potentially powerful health benefits, especially in the areas of anxiety, seizures, and pain relief.
After years of taboo due to its relationship with marijuana, health care experts are now taking a closer look at CBD and its advantages. Some researchers believe that CBD works indirectly with our body’s ability to regulate appetite, pain, and sleep. It assists our regulatory system to function as it should, as opposed to healing it. Ultimately the use of CBD may help our bodies achieve balance.
CBD and Coffee
While not a new idea, CBD coffee is gaining a reputation as a great alternative to regular coffee. So, what happens when you mix CBD oil with coffee? When you think about it, coffee contains the stimulant caffeine while CBD works in the way of a relaxant. They counteract each other—it’s a match made in coffee heaven!
The rich aroma and flavor of a good cup of coffee made from freshly roasted beans are almost irresistible. Would-be coffee lovers that experience headaches, jitters, and insomnia due to the caffeine content find that these side effects outweigh the enjoyment. Adding CBD to coffee means you can enjoy your coffee without worry.
If you love coffee and want the benefits of CBD, then it is worth trying CBD Coffee. The best examples are those made with freshly roasted coffee beans and just the right amount of CBD oil to deliver the benefits without compromising the rich coffee taste.
Here at Kona Gold Trading Company, we are excited to be releasing our own blend of CBD coffee, made with medium/dark Kona Gold whole bean coffee. It takes 24 hours for our premium roasted beans to infuse with the CBD oil. The result is a coffee blend made in heaven.
