Where are my coffee drinkers at?! If you’re like me, you like to start your morning with a nice cup of java (I prefer a homemade brew). You may even indulge in an extra cup or two to get through the day (we’ve all been there). But while your coffee is giving you a quick rush of energy, you may fall victim to the side effects of too much caffeine. This can include shakiness, nervousness, restlessness, headaches and upset stomach to name a few (1). Up until recently, the only thing you can do to combat those coffee jitters is to ride it out.
Introducing the 2018 Farm Bill! The most recent and progressive legislature concerning CBD to date! In 2018, congress passed the Farm Bill, which distinguishes between cannabis classified as hemp (where CBD comes from) versus marijuana (2). This distinction has opened research into the endless benefits that hemp-based CBD can provide. So...what does this have to do with your morning coffee you ask? Well, it turns out that adding some CBD to your morning coffee can be beneficial in helping to calm those jitters that sometimes are associated with drinking coffee.
Although research is ongoing, it’s interesting to note that many of the benefits of CBD directly combat the negative effects of caffeine in coffee.
CBD has become a new favorite for coffee drinkers that sometimes experience the negative effects of caffeine. Many people report feeling alert and focused without the jitteriness (3). Others say it helps take the edge off that coffee can sometimes give. Of course, this is all objective, and greatly depends on the person, the CBD and the dosage. We’ve said it before, but CBD dosage isn’t one-size-fits-all. It can depend on your tolerance, weight, and sex. That’s why it’s important to start low and build up. Make sure your CBD is high quality so that you may actually feel the results. High quality CBD, like Chillax’n CBD is grown in the US, third party tested and includes a certificate of analysis (COA). Looking for these things is a good way to ensure your CBD is of high quality.
Chillax’n CBD offers two kinds of CBD concentrates that go great in coffee! The CBD oil concentrate and water-soluble concentrate allow you to have some options when choosing which CBD is best for you. Although many people prefer an oil concentrate, the water-based version is perfect for mixing with drinks (no separation from oil). Once you have your CBD, read the directions carefully and follow the dosing instructions (for Chillax’n CBD about ½ a dropper). Add it to your coffee and enjoy the focused calm that washes over you!
