Cannabis contains more than one hundred active substances called cannabinoids. Each one performs different functions, both in the plant and in the human body if consumed. One of the cannabinoids that we know more about is cannabidiol or CBD. Cannabis is widely known for its recreational use and the ability to alter the mind of its user, but that effect is due to another cannabinoid known as THC , a cousin of CBD.

When talking about CBD it is important to make it clear from the beginning that it is a non-psychoactive substance, that is, it does not produce any alteration. What it can help is to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

A few decades ago it was discovered that the human body has an endocannabinoid system (SEC). It is a network of cannabinoid receptors that we have throughout the body, as well as endocannabinoids that we create ourselves. SEC is essential for our survival because it maintains homeostasis, that is, it helps to keep the body in balance with the regulation of numerous bodily functions.

CBD coffee

The truth is that, compared to tea, coffee is a much more common drink in USA. As it is such a popular drink both within and outside our borders, it has not taken companies long to create CBD coffee.

The main concern of many is caffeine. Although most teas also contain some caffeine, coffee contains a much higher amount. This is why many people wonder if CBD works well with caffeine.

Caffeine is used as an energizer, which is why some find it difficult to start the day without a good cup of tea. Some trials suggest that small doses of CBD can work in a similar way, so a combination of the two could give you a good energy boost.

CBD is known to be a substance that we tolerate well, that does not cause side effects and is not addictive , so taking CBD with caffeine will not hurt you. In fact, excessive caffeine consumption is likely to be more harmful than CBD coffee.

CBD tea

It is now possible to find infusions for all tastes. How about taking your CBD fix with a cup of tea? The truth is that you can do it now.

Usually CBD products have to come from industrial hemp, the use of marijuana is strictly illegal. This is why some companies are already starting to make tea from hemp leaves. This plant has cannabinoids, including CBD, in the leaves and flowers, so when you infuse some hemp leaves with boiling water, the CBD goes into the water. In this way, the antioxidants in hemp also pass into the drink so that you can enjoy a very healthy tea.

Although the truth is that not everyone likes its taste. Luckily, you can also find other infusions, such as earl gray tea, infused with CBD. There are already several companies that sell CBD tea blends, but you can also make your CBD tea at home.

Where can I buy CBD tea or coffee?

With the unstoppable expansion of the CBD market, it is not very difficult to find CBD teas and coffees for sale online. Do a Google search and a few results will appear.

We advise you to add "your country name" at the end of the search to ensure that you buy a product available in your country, since the different laws between countries could prevent you from receiving a product that you buy, for example, from a company in the United States. 

Can I make my own CBD tea or coffee?

One of the great things about CBD coffee or tea is that you don't have to buy overpriced blends online because you can make it at home. We are not talking about growing hemp and extracting the CBD yourself, all you need is a bottle of CBD oil and the tea or coffee that you like best.

It is important to note that CBD is not soluble in water, so it will not mix well with a hot drink unless you add a little milk because as it contains some fat, CBD will mix better with the drink.

To make your own CBD tea or coffee, you just have to make the drink by the normal procedure, add a few drops of CBD oil and mix well.

Although you cannot overdose on CBD, it can cause some side effect in users who are not used to using it. Those effects include drowsiness, nausea, and diarrhea. None are serious, but they can be unpleasant. That is why we advise you to use the daily dose that you usually consume in a single cup of tea or coffee. Don't add it to every drink you have!

Final reflection

Despite the popularity CBD is starting to get, many don't like the earthy taste of CBD oil. Luckily, some companies are starting to sell CBD tea and coffee. It is perfect for those who are unable to start the day without a cup of their favorite beverage.
