Most of us are NOT morning people, so if you are a coffee drinker, we know that one sip of coffee is like heaven! Coffee keeps you awake and focused, providing you with the energy to get through your day. Recently, coffee and CBD have merged! Are you ready for an extra energy boost?
Coffee contains a variety of different components, such as antioxidants, but most people drink coffee for the caffeine, an active stimulant that provides the characteristic boost in energy and alertness. CBD and coffee can seem at odds considering their respective effects. One is known for calm and relaxation, while the other is known for wakefulness and energy. Surprisingly, some studies suggest that coffee and cannabis activate some similar pathways in the brain.
One theory suggests that CBD and caffeine inhibit a chemical known as adenosine. Adenosine plays a variety of roles, particularly involving energy transfer and cell signaling, but it’s also known to act as a central nervous system sedative. Caffeine blocks adenosine receptors, which results in you feeling more awake and alert. CBD is believed to delay the reuptake of adenosine into your neurons, which may contribute to its potential to calm the body and help in the management of inflammation. Both CBD and coffee are known to have mood-lifting properties on their own. Working together, CBD and coffee can help to regulate your mood to reduce stress and support relaxation without making you sluggish or lethargic.
Although coffee is known to cause heartburn and digestive problems, CBD may help to calm the stomach and counteract the common bowel issues associated with drinking too much coffee.
While there are lots of reasons to use CBD in your food or by itself, try not to go overboard on the coffee. Too much caffeine in your system is not a good thing. Try to keep your intake to under five cups of coffee per day. Any more than that and you’ll still probably feel the jitters even with the CBD.
