Should You Put CBD in your Coffee
Cannabidiol has been making headlines around the country, thanks largely to the 2018 Farm Bill legalizing hemp and hemp-based products. People are clamoring for its calming, anxiety-fighting properties. It has shown up in jams, baked goods, and, now, in your morning cup of coffee.
Benefits of CBD
Here are some reasons why you should consider putting Cannabidiol in your coffee, and why you may want to hold off for now.
Improved Focus and Concentration
Research indicates that cannabidiol, commonly referred to as CBD, can improve focus, relive pain, and create a general feeling of contentment. When paired with the metabolism and concentration-boosting properties of caffeine, you can expect to feel sharp focus and the ability to concentrate on tasks at hand. That is a huge advantage if you are facing a tight deadline or big presentation at the office.
Lower Cortisol Levels
Cortisol is a major stress hormone. It plays a big role in preparing your body for the fight or flight response. Cannabidiol without THC compounds has been linked to lower levels of cortisol in the blood, especially when taken long term.
No Longer on the Edge
Cannabidiol is generally known to ease symptoms of insomnia and help you get to sleep. Yet it does not negate the energy-inducing effects of caffeine in your morning cup of coffee. Instead, it simply takes the edge off. You become alert and focused without the jitters coffee can produce.
Easing Stomach Upset
Anyone with Acid Reflux or GERD can tell you that coffee can cause stomach upset. Luckily for them, CBD added to coffee can calm an upset stomach. You can enjoy your morning cup of coffee knowing there will be no price to pay afterward.
A Word of Caution
Adding THC-free Cannabidiol tincture to a cup of coffee is popular for several reasons. Coffee offers a convenient way to get your morning dose without changing your daily routine. We do want to issue a minor word of caution if you are considering CBD-infused coffee.
Heat may reduce the efficacy of cannabidiol. So, if you are drinking your coffee hot, dosing may not be accurate. This is especially important if you are taking medications, or have an underlying medical condition. It is also why we strongly recommend the balanced formulation of our READY energy boosting drink.
We have developed this highly effective alternative for those of you who are looking to for an extra boost in performance and focus.
Be READY to Start Your DayOur READY product is formulated with GABA (gamma-Aminobutyric acid) and THC-free Cannabidiol. This symbiotic combination stimulates mental focus and concentration with none of the jittery side effects of coffee. Research into this relationship shows that cannabidiol directly affects GABA receptors. This may help explain why the two work so well together. GABA not only helps to lower anxiety levels, it also boosts the immune system during stressful situations.
