Coffee’s Newest Side-Kick
Light with two sugars. Cold-brew over crushed ice. Medium hot with oat milk. If you’re like 58% of your fellow-Americans, you make or order your coffee the same way every day. It’s your morning ritual.
Of course, there’s always that pesky tipping point—the fine line between a perky rush and the caffeine jitters. But if you’d like that ready-for-anything workday alertness and the relaxation of Saturday coffee-in-bed, there’s something you could add to that next cup: CBD.
CBD is derived from hemp, and CBD oil tinctures can be mixed directly into your coffee. Unlike THC, CBD won’t produce a “high.” Instead, when ingested, CBD may help you maintain a sense of calm and overall well-being. When added straight to your mug, you’ll receive the overall wellness support of CBD and the boost of energy from the coffee!
Not that you need convincing to enjoy that morning cup – the smell itself is enough to get you out of bed—but you can sip happier knowing there are potential health benefits associated with both coffee and CBD.
Adding some CBD into your coffee (or just consuming it alone) has the potential to:
Encourage a relaxed body and mind
Support exercise recovery for those living an active lifestyle
Complement your overall health and wellness
Choosing Your Coffee Roast Profile
Whether you’re interested in trying a new roast at your local grocery store or checking out a new coffee-shop, the choices for coffees and flavors are vast. A basic understanding of roasts will help you get started on choosing your next brew.
Coffee roasts come in four broad categories: light, medium, medium-dark, and dark. Think of the roasts as a scale from more acidity (light roast) to more bitter (dark roast). For light roasts, think milder taste. For dark roasts, think espresso. A medium roast is the most common across the US and often referred to as American roast. Consider it the Goldilocks of roasts with its balance of flavor, aroma, and acidity.
Choosing Your CBD Tincture
We know the CBD choices can be overwhelming. But they don’t have to be! CBD comes in different strengths and products (edibles, topicals, vapes), but for CBD coffee, you’ll want to choose a tincture. Tinctures will easily stir into your coffee and allow you to control the amount of CBD you’re consuming.
When looking for a CBD tincture, you’ll want a high-quality, broad-spectrum CBD tincture from a reputable brand. We take the guesswork out of finding your ideal tincture because you can order it right here. HempFusion’s CBD tinctures include more than just CBD; they also contain beneficial plant nutrients that work better when they’re together—just as Mother Nature intended.
Adding CBD to your coffee may also help balance out the effects of caffeine. Since CBD has calming properties—and caffeine can kick up your heart rate—you may enjoy a more mellow alertness with your drink. CBD coffee may also support focus throughout the day without causing you to feel too jittery. Because you’ll be digesting the CBD, as opposed to other delivery methods, it’ll work through the body slowly and steadily, which may help prevent the crash that comes with too many cups of coffee.
