CBD has become increasingly popular in the health and wellness industry as a natural way to balance your physical and emotional stress responses. There are thousands of products on the market that range from edibles to topical creams infused with CBD that make it easy for anyone to try it out for themselves. As CBD popularity increases, people are finding more unique ways to integrate it into their daily routine, starting with their morning cup of coffee.
CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid derived from hemp that has been used for anxiety and pain management due to its relaxing properties. Coffee, a caffeinated stimulant, has quite the opposite effect of CBD. The combination of the two seems contradictory, but when CBD and caffeine interact, the effects of both tend to balance out.
Research is still emerging on the benefits of the combination of CBD and caffeine, but there is anecdotal evidence that suggests CBD can ease nervousness and jitters associated with ingesting caffeinated coffee. This is in part due to how CBD and caffeine interact with adenosine, a chemical found in the body that regulates sleep-wake cycles. Caffeine inhibits adenosine receptors lending to feelings of alertness and wakefulness while CBD, in high doses, amplifies adenosine leading to relaxation. The balance between caffeine and CBD’s interactions with adenosine may lead to reports of people feeling peaceful and alert after ingesting CBD infused coffee.
Integrating CBD oil into your morning cup of coffee is an easy way to implement it into your daily routine. While many coffee shops are hopping on the bandwagon and offering CBD oil add-ons, you don’t have to go out and find an infused cup of coffee to enjoy the benefits of daily CBD use. Infusing your coffee with a little CBD is as easy as adding a few drops of Koi Naturals to your favorite brew. Koi Natural’s CBD oil is available in a variety of strengths and flavors so you can add as much or as little as you need. Whether you are new to using CBD or benefit from its regular use, adding CBD oil into your coffee is a great way to find your daily balance while enjoying the process.
