How Can CBD Coffee Make You Feel Better?
Every day, coffee lovers consume an approximation of 2.2 billion cups of coffee! A steaming cup of coffee in the morning can ready us to fight the day. More and more people are favoring coffee and are drinking more than two cups a day.
What makes coffee so addicting? The answer we are looking for lies in the substance “Caffeine.” Caffeine is a natural stimulant primarily found in coffee, tea, and cacao plants. It promotes the functioning of your brain and nervous systems, helping you stay alert and prevent tiredness.
Caffeine is so far one of the most popular stimulants in the world. Another source of caffeine is tea, where 3 billion people consume tea every day. So we can fairly assume that humans are addicted to caffeine!
What caffeine does to your body?
- Caffeine relatively increases brain signaling molecules such as dopamine and norepinephrine, which benefit your mood and brain functions.
- Caffeine also can block other brain-signaling molecule adenosine, which causes tiredness in the body.
- On the other side, people who drink coffee have reported its side-effects, which include anxiousness, nausea, and some can even feel heart skipping beats or heartbeats pounding out of the chest. That said, coffee is not as perfect as it seems.
It is where the part of “CBD” comes in. Cannabidiol abbreviated as CBD is a bioactive non-psychoactive constituent of the cannabis plant. In recent years CBD has raged throughout the world for its health benefits. It has made its way into every edible product anyone can imagine that includes coffee.
What is CBD coffee?
Among many Premium CBD products available in the market, CBD coffee is yet another offering added into coffee, lattes, and espressos. Even as simple as it sounds, different blends and CBD dosages can have a range of effects on the body.
We don’t know yet how coffee interacts with CBD, but a few pieces of evidence show that coffee influences the same areas of the brain as cannabis.
How CBD coffee makes you feel better?
- By increasing mental alertness
We have seen that caffeine blocks the effects of brain-signaling molecule adenosine. This neurotransmitter is responsible for making you sleep. When adenosine builds-up in the body, we feel sleepy and tired. So coffee makes you alert by blocking adenosine.
Whereas, CBD has the complete opposite effect and is known to be an adenosine modulator. Meaning it allows you to chill or stay calm and even slow you down.
There is very little research on how both coffee and CBD interact with our bodies. But anecdotal reports state that the CBD cancels out the effects of “caffeine high” and promotes energized state of mind.
CBD coffee allows you to have mental alertness effectively without any caffeine jitters.
- By boosting feel-good vibes
Coffee causes to stimulate a response from brain signaling molecules and boosts the production of dopamine and norepinephrine. This activity causes a feel-good effect on our body and promotes motivation and a good mood.
CBD is well-known for its activity on serotonin receptors. It activates serotonin receptors, which increases serotonin activity in the body. In the aftermath, scientists think that CBD’s ability can be a crucial factor in treating drug dependence, neuropathic pain, mental disorders, etc.
CBD coffee is best when it comes to staying motivated, happy, and stress-free with all the feel-good vibes.
- By Relieving anxiety
CBD coffee is a trend today due to its anxiety-relieving property. The best-known use of CBD is for treating anxiety and depression. Repeatedly, studies have shown that CBD is a potent treatment for generalized anxiety disorders (GAD), post-traumatic stress disorders (PTSD), social anxiety disorders (SAD), stress, and insomnia.
Since everyone drinks coffee every day, it becomes easy to have a regular CBD dose in your diet. Coffee is a great way to deliver CBD in your body. Coffee lovers have also reported that CBD has alleviated the symptoms of caffeine-induced anxiety.
- By heightening brain functions
An investigation published in the Journal of Internal Medicine revealed that coffee and cannabis activate some of the brain’s same pathways. Both coffee and CBD are incredibly complex molecules.
It was suggested that coffee reacts with the endocannabinoid system (ECS) the same as CBD and has different brain function results. However, more and more studies are required to find out the exact mechanism.
For now, CBD coffee can bring changes to our brain functions, boost fat metabolism, and may reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes.
