The Benefits of Adding CBD to Your Coffee

Author: Jason Beverly

With science proving that a daily cup of coffee can lower your risk of heart disease, prevent diabetes and liver cancer, and improve symptoms of depression, there’s certainly reason to enjoy the beverage from time to time. With coffee being beneficial in itself, there’s no need to combine it with anything else – but doing so can open you up to an even wider range of remedial properties.

One of the most valuable additions you can make to your coffee is CBD oil. If you’re considering combining coffee with CBD, but don’t know much about the compound, the below article may come in useful to you.

What is CBD?

CBD is one of the hundreds of compounds found inside the hemp or cannabis plant.  When extracted from the plant as an oil, it can be used to promote a healthy lifestyle, improve wellness, and treat a variety of common ailments. CBD is not to be mistaken with THC, which is illegal in many countries around the world because of its psychoactive properties. Unlike THC, CBD will not give users a high, and is safe and legal to purchase and use.

What are the benefits of adding CBD to your coffee?

As mentioned above, CBD does not have to be taken to treat a specific illness or disorder – it can be used to support general health and well-being. That said, scientific studies have proven that CBD can be used to treat a number of mental and physical illnesses that affect a large population of society, including:

  • Anxiety and depression
  • Inflammation and pain
  • Muscle spasms
  • Fatigue and insomnia
  • Some cancers
  • Nausea and sickness
  • Epileptic seizures
  • Acne and psoriasis
  • Immune diseases
  • Alzheimer’s disease

Research continues to reveal the benefits of CBD, so this is by no means a definitive list. It is likely that further studies will produce more specific information that will be invaluable in how we treat illnesses with CBD in the future.

Where can I get CBD from?

As of now, CBD is not prescribed medicinally by doctors, aside from for certain patients suffering from epilepsy. For this reason, you shouldn’t expect to be able to pick up a CBD oil with a doctor’s prescription, but that doesn’t stop the compound from being widely available elsewhere. Your best bet for finding good quality CBD oil is at your local health store, or online, from a trusted brand. Many brands offer a variety of methods to consume CBD depending on their intended use. For example if you are looking to improve your sleep you can find some of the best CBD gummies for sleep we have tried here. Make sure to do your research first, and check out a product’s reviews before buying.

How do I add CBD to my coffee?

When you purchase CBD oil, it should give you a guidance of what dosage to take per day in its directions for use. Make sure you stick to the advised dose, starting at the lower end of the scale and working up if you need to. Once you’ve brewed your coffee and let it cool slightly, add the correct dose of oil and stir it as you would milk or sugar. The oil should combine with your drink, and, unless you’ve bought one that’s flavored, you may not even taste it in your drink at all.
