What is CBD infused coffee?
CBD coffee is infused with cannabidiol, one of over one hundred naturally occurring compounds found in hemp plants, and before we go any further CBD does not get you high – so if that was a concern then you can now continue reading in good conscience.
CBD oil is made by extracting the compound from hemp cannabis plants then diluting it with a carrier oil – coconut and hemp seed are the most popular choices. A small amount of this oil can be added to coffee.
What are the health benefits of CBD?
There are plenty of health benefits attributed to using CBD oil, some of which has been tested extensively and others are still in their early stages. This include:
- Anxiety and depression reduction
- Reduce acne
- They have neuroprotective properties
- Even believed to boost heart health
Does it taste different to regular coffee?
As CBD oil is unflavoured (excluding the taste of whichever oil has been used as a carrier), CBD coffee simply tastes like the coffee it’s been added in to. So that can be earthy, mellow or sweetened with syrups if that’s how you take your regular cup of joe.
Are there any side effects or drawbacks?
A few believed side effects include fatigue, changes to appetite and diarrhoea.
