Many people that love the lift they get from coffee. However, they don’t really want the anxiety and jitters that come with the alertness and clear-headed feeling they like. Adding Cannabinoids (CBD) when taking caffeine might just be the solution you are looking for.
In a recent article posted on Weed Maps (weedmaps.com), they point out that, “Caffeine and CBD are two substances gaining in popularity, particularly when they’re mixed.” And they go on to note that in a 2007 study it showed that caffeine is metabolized by CYP enzymes. These enzymes are inhibited by CBD. This could extend the time caffeine stays in the body. This could potential to extend the stimulating effects of caffeine.
But wait, there’s more…
One way many people consume CBD and Caffeine, growing in popularity, is by drinking CBD coffee. The Chicago Tribune mentions, “In a nation where over 80% of its residents drink coffee, it’s no wonder that we run on caffeine and anxiety. What if the anxiety part could be mitigated, though? CBD coffee could be just the ticket to calming those nerves while still getting you nice and buzzy.“
CBS News also offers some great insight to how CBD Coffee is growing in popularity. They make a terrific effort to explain the difference between the use of CBD and THC. This is done by explaining the fact that CBD is not psychoactive and does not give the user a feeling of being high. However, CBD still has a calming effect for most people that consume it. This can make a huge difference to people that might be interested in the beneficial effects of using CBD.
CBD can be consumed in many ways, like using a tincture to add it to coffee or purchasing CBD coffee pods from a reputable source. There are gummies, capsules and oils which are also popular methods for consuming CBD as well. All of these methods can be implemented at the same time as a cup o’ Joe, thus also interacting with the coffee to get the intended mellowing results.
