For many people, facing the day without their morning cup of Joe would be unbearable, but CBD and caffeine can be a better choice—both together and separately—to get you going in the morning. CBD can be easily added to your coffee to turn it into a more-perfect morning beverage that leaves you energized without the ill-effects coffee has. Alternatively, CBD can provide some of the same benefits you’re seeking from caffeine all by itself. By learning more about CBD oil and caffeine and how they work in your body, you can give yourself a great pick me up to start the day without the mid-morning let down that kills productivity.
Caffeine: The Drug of Choice for Millions
Caffeine is a stimulant, probably the most popularly consumed stimulant in the world. It’s found in a variety of sources consumed by adults and kids alike. Coffee, tea, chocolate, soda pop, and more contain caffeine. While it can make you feel more awake and alert, over-consumption can come with a variety of side effects. Tremors, indigestion, and insomnia can all make life more difficult for heavy caffeine users, but using CBD and caffeine together may have a role in mitigating those effects or CBD alone can offer an alternative to caffeine entirely.
Cannabidiol: The New Supplement With a Long History
For centuries, humans have used hemp as a source for paper, clothing, and to promote their mental and physical health and wellness. Its demonization as the sister plant of marijuana is only around a century old. Resulting from a smear campaign by the timber and textile industries (among others), hemp was lumped in with its close cousin and they were both considered controlled and dangerous substances from 1970 until the passage of the 2014 Farm Bill and the subsequent 2018 Farm Bill which once again recognized them as separate, distinct plants and returned industrial hemp and its derivatives to a legal status federally.
Cannabidiol, or CBD, is one of over 100 active compounds found in industrial hemp. While related to marijuana, hemp has less than 0.3% THC by weight, meaning it lacks the strong psychoactive concentration to get you high. Hemp plants are harvested for their CBD-rich components—the stems, leaves, and flowers—which are then processed to extract a potent hemp oil packed with CBD and other potentially useful cannabinoids. CBD oil is then formulated into other products, such as lotions or capsules, but is also sold separately so it can be used orally, baked into yummy treats, or CBD oil and caffeine beverages like fortified coffees and teas.
Using Both CBD and Caffeine
If you don’t want to give up your morning brew, that’s all right. No one is making you. We’re just saying that CBD might make it a little better. CBD naturally helps promote a calmer, more relaxed demeanor. This can be perfect for those who like the alertness, but not the shakes, irritability, or jumpiness that sometimes comes with a morning latte. Users report improved focus and a more positive outlook. The lack of stress alone can be just the ticket to a better night’s sleep and an easier time getting going in the morning.
Getting CBD and caffeine at the same time is easy. You can take your favorite CBD tincture and add a few drops to your brew. If you want a better blend that gets your brain working, put your coffee, CBD oil, and some coconut oil or grass-fed butter in a blender and pulse it until it is frothy and evenly mixed, then pour it into your cup. It’s the perfect blend of healthy fats, caffeine, and CBD oil to wake your brain up. Failing that, choosing a yummy edible like CBD brownies, cookies, or even gummies and get you your daily CBD dose in a form that matches perfectly with coffee.
Using CBD Instead of Caffeine
If you want to forego the coffee altogether, CBD can help make it possible. By using CBD to support an overall healthier lifestyle, you won’t need your cup of Joe. Sound too good to be true? Let’s start with a revolutionary concept: humans weren’t intended to schlep themselves out of bed, still exhausted and aching from the day before, to stumble blindly to work half-awake. Crazy, right?
When used as wellness support for better nutrition, activity, and sleeping habits, CBD can help you kick the crutch of caffeine to the curb.
- Digestion—There are a lot of factors that go into our body’s “simple” act of digesting food. A nervous or excited emotional state, too much acid, or too many diuretics can make proper digestion difficult, leading to a range of ailments like constipation, diarrhea, and gastric reflux. All of these can be caused by caffeine, and CBD can help each one. CBD promotes a calmer mental state and better digestive system regulation. The result is a more efficient digestive system that gets more nutrients from the foods you eat.
- Exercise—CBD can aid in focus during strenuous activity and help your body recover better after a hard workout. This means users often report they can work out harder and more often, keeping them on a fitness schedule that not only helps them be stronger and healthier, but more energized in every aspect of their lives.
- Sleep—Heavy users can find themselves lying awake at night from the stimulant effects of caffeine, and CBD is the exact opposite. Many people suffering from insomnia for a variety of reasons choose CBD to help calm their minds, relax their bodies, and help them drift off to sleep. When taken regularly, this can help create a regular sleep and waking schedule as your body finds a circadian rhythm.
The sum of these benefits is a healthier, more rested you that feels more alert naturally when waking up in the morning.
