Introduction to CBD Coffee

CBD Coffee is just as its name suggests: coffee with added or infused Cannabidiol (CBD).

What Is Cannabidiol?

Cannabidiol (CBD) comes from the food-grade hemp plant (Cannabis Sativa). It is a non-psychoactive so it won't get you "high."

CBD has gained huge momentum over the last few years, with millions of people around the world using it as a regular food supplement in an effort to move towards a more balanced and overall healthier lifestyle.

When most people are first introduced to CBD, it tends to be in the form of a CBD oil which is taken by putting a couple of drops of the oil under the tongue. While this method is still preferred by some purists, the increased interest in CBD and hemp-infused products - and the desire from consumers for more choice - has seen manufacturers produce a range of exciting new products. This includes CBD beauty and skincare ranges, muscle creams, CBD edibles - in the form of gummies and chocolate - and popular beverages, like coffee.

What is CBD Coffee?

As the demand for convenient ways to get your daily intake of CBD grows, it didn’t take long for someone to think of combining CBD with one of the most well-loved of beverages: coffee.

Around the world, 2 billion cups of coffee are consumed daily - with the UK alone drinking around 95 million cups of the good stuff every single day. It should come as no surprise, then, that someone would spot a great opportunity to infuse this much loved drink with one of the fastest growing food supplements.

What Does CBD Coffee Taste Like?

Most CBD coffees are made with Arabica coffee beans which are preferred by coffee connoisseurs for their impressive flavour. They contain natural sugars and fats and produce a drink that is less acidic and bitter than Robusta coffee.

Once roasted the arabica coffee beans are delicately infused with CBD to provide a rich, full-bodied taste, that encapsulates hints of chocolate, caramel, undertones of fruit and - of course - a very subtle note of hemp. This makes it a popular, natural plant based drink in it’s own right.

CBD coffee can be used to make a whole plethora of our most popular coffee based drinks including CBD lattes, americano, flat whites and so on. You can even jazz it up with some hot chocolate to make a delicious CBD Mocha or chill out with an iced CBD coffee.

If you want to take it that extra mile, you can even make your own CBD milk for your coffee using our guide.

What are the Benefits of CBD?

When combined with coffee beans, CBD offers a range of health benefits as it is rich in antioxidants, nutrients and vitamins. such as B2 and B5 as well as helping to maintain the body's endocannabinoid system (ECS) which plays a role in keeping us healthy. Some people that are sensitive to caffeine will avoid coffee altogether or only drink it at certain times of the day, so it might be of interest to know that many CBD coffee drinkers report that the Cannabinoids in it help to balance out some of the negative effects that can be associated with caffeine so unlike with a regular coffee they find it relaxing leaving them energised with a feeling of calm.
