The CBD Coffee Debate: Should You Add CBD Coffee To Your Morning Routine?
Understanding the Combined Potential of CBD-Infused Coffee
Double-shot, single-shot, iced, latte or foamed, as a nation, we are drinking more specialty coffee than ever before. It often seems you can’t navigate a single city block without encountering at least one busy barista grinding, steaming, and measuring their way through endless lines of dedicated patrons.
Whether you prefer your natural pick-me-up, home-brewed, bottled, cold-brewed, or blended, you may have noticed the steady increase in the number of CBD-infused coffee-based beverages. For those with an interest in the many potential health and wellness benefits of hemp CBD, this growing trend seems to indicate that hemp CBD has found a significant level of acceptance within our once skeptical society.
While this level of public support for CBD is definitely encouraging, there are a few significant factors to keep in mind before paying top dollar for a CBD-infused coffee blend.
The Many Potential Health Benefits of CBD-Infused Beverages
Some who indulge in CBD-infused coffee drinks are attracted to the novelty, the apparent trendiness of the product. While it may seem that CBD-infused coffee is a recently discovered fad, many CBD enthusiasts have been adding CBD to their coffee, tea, and smoothies long before CBD-infused products were promoted on the menu boards of their favorite coffee house.
CBD is the non-psychoactive extract of the hemp plant. This natural supplement has the potential to mimic the messengers and influence the receptors of the complex communication network that regulates nearly every necessary function in your body, your endocannabinoid system.
It’s because of this ability to interact with your endocannabinoid system, and several significant non-endocannabinoid receptors, that CBD is shown to have so many seemingly non-related potential health and wellness benefits.
Now that you may be a bit more familiar with some of the latest buzz surrounding the popularity of CBD products, it’s likely easier to understand why so many people seem to be flocking to CBD-infused products, and why so many shop owners are happy to oblige.
Coffee Has Its Own Impressive List of Potential Health and Wellness Benefits
While some consider coffee consumption a vice that needs restriction, others wouldn’t even consider denying themselves a single steaming cup of caffeinated glory. Yes, overindulgence can have negative consequences, but research suggests that moderate coffee consumption provides significant potential health and wellness benefits of its own.
Some People are Quite Sensitive to the Effects of Caffeine
For better or worse, coffee contains a considerable amount of caffeine. Overindulgence has its consequences. While many of us feel more alert and focused after indulging in our favorite caffeinated confections, not everyone experiences a positive reaction to the stimulating effects of caffeine. Some people experience significant side effects from indulging in coffee, including:
- Increased symptoms of anxiety
- Feeling jittery or jumpy (increases cortisol production)
- Indigestion or heartburn
- Frequent urination (caffeine is a diuretic)
- Heart palpitations
- Difficulty sleeping or bouts of insomnia2
The Combined Potential of CBD and Coffee
While there are several studies confirming that CBD and coffee both provide significant health and wellness benefits individually, many CBD enthusiasts find that combining the potential mood-regulating properties of CBD with their coffee balances the negative effects of caffeine.
Quite honestly, there has not been all that much research into the combined interactions of CBD and caffeine. The potential benefits of combining the two are largely based on anecdotal evidence, the experiences, and testimony of those who enjoy the potential effects of CBD-infused coffee.
CBD Should Be Added After Coffee Is Brewed
It’s important to realize that many coffee vendors willing to cash in on the increasing popularity of CBD may not know the ins and outs of working with CBD oil. If your coffee merchant is simply adding an insignificant amount of CBD to your coffee to increase their profits, they are not likely providing a product worthy of the price. Before paying top dollar for a CBD-infused coffee blend, consider the following:
- Your barista (or product label) should be able to convey how many milligrams of CBD your coffee contains
- Coffee containing less than 5-10 mg of CBD is unlikely to be worth the investment
- CBD-infused coffee beans are not an effective method of providing CBD-infused coffee. CBD is separated from coffee beans during the brewing process
- CBD should be added to coffee after brewing to provide any potential effects3
Those who promote the benefits of CBD-infused coffee claim CBD reduces the caffeine-induced jitteriness of caffeinated beverages allowing coffee drinkers the alertness of caffeine without the adverse effects.
Sometimes the best way to know if something is right for you is to try it. When you add your own CBD to your favorite coffee-laden beverages, you have control over the amount of CBD your indulgence of choice contains and can be sure the CBD is added after brewing is complete.

CBD has the potential to supplement the messengers of your endocannabinoid system. Under the strain of stress, illness, or injury, your body could need more endocannabinoid messengers than your system has available. This can result in endocannabinoid deficiencies. The cannabinoids in non-psychoactive hemp keep this vital system functioning harmoniously while providing a multitude of potential health and wellness benefits.
