When you are considering products to help promote relaxation, coffee is likely one of the last things that come to mind. While you may usually reserve that cup of java for a morning pick-me-up, this new CBD-infused coffee may change your routine entirely.
In a world that is constantly discussing cannabis and it’s uses, it’s surprising how few people actually understand how the various products work. Designed for medicinal purposes, CBD is a compound within cannabis that provides countless benefits but without leaving you feeling ‘high’. Used for everything from the management of seizures to pain relief, CBD products are widely considered the new ‘it’ drug in today’s society.
In fact, the CBD market in the United States is exploding, valued at approximately $350 million and climbing rapidly. Take a moment to search the internet and you will find everything from tea and beer alternatives to balms and hand lotion. In fact, making history, the first federally-approved prescription drug derived from marijuana has now entered the market, used to manage and treat childhood epilepsy. It’s clear that we, as a society, have opened our minds to the benefits that these products are able to provide us, and it’s only going to continue to grow as more and more people buy in.
One product that has been taking the internet by storm is the existence of CBD-infused coffee, said to provide (as one company referred to it) a ‘functional chill’. Coffee is one of those products that has become an integral part of our American society, with 64% of Americans reporting that they drink at least one cup of coffee every single day. Imagine, however, that you could enjoy the energy boost and alertness of your morning coffee without the jitters. Instead, that warm cup in your hands would help you to calm your nerves, let go of stress, calm anxiety, and a number of physical health benefits.
It is important to note that this shouldn’t be considered a substitute for those that are using CBD for important medical conditions, such as the management of seizures. Drinking cannabis coffee or tea makes it incredibly challenging tracking dosage amounts. Studies have also found that temperature can have an impact on CBD and its effects, causing an additional challenge in tracking the dose. However, for those who choose to take CBD as a supplement or ‘nutritional bonus’, the exact dosage is far less important.
So next time you’re looking to change up your morning routine, look no further! Drop some CBD-infused coffee grounds in your coffee maker and enjoy the benefits!
