Mixing CBD with your morning coffee or tea can provide a number of potential benefits. Caffeine is a stimulant that gives you a boost of energy and increases focus, but it can also cause jitteriness or anxiety in some people.
CBD, on the other hand, has been shown to have calming and relaxing effects that can help counteract the negative side effects of caffeine.
If you need that morning cup of Joe to get out of bed but don’t appreciate the jitters that come with consuming caffeine, adding CBD to your drink can keep you energized without the overstimulation or crash that can come with consuming caffeine alone.
Everyone's experience with CBD and caffeine may not be identical. For optimal effects it’s generally a good idea to start with a low dose of CBD and monitor your reaction before increasing the amount consumed.
What Are the Benefits of Mixing CBD and Caffeine?
Now that you know mixing CBD and caffeine is a thing, you’re probably wondering exactly how you can benefit from incorporating both in your daily routine. Potential benefits of the two include:
- Increased focus and productivity: Combining CBD and caffeine can enhance mental clarity, focus and productivity. CBD's calming effects can help counteract the jitters, a common side effect of caffeine, allowing you to feel more relaxed and grounded yet mentally alert.
- Improved mood: CBD has been found to have mood-enhancing properties and can help improve feelings of well-being. Combining CBD with caffeine can help boost your mood and increase your overall sense of happiness.
- Enhanced physical performance: Caffeine is a known performance enhancer and combining it with CBD may help improve physical performance by reducing pain, inflammation and muscle soreness.
How to Mix CBD and Caffeine
There are many ways to mix CBD with caffeine and finding your favorite drink may require some creative experimentation.
CBD-Infused Yerba Matte Tea
Yerba mate is an herbal tea native to South America. The tea is caffeinated but people describe its effects as more balanced (no jitters) and longer lasting than those from coffee or black tea. This is because yerba mate also contains theobromine and theophylline, which are stimulants that work in different ways in the body.
The CBD-infused Mint Yerba Matte Tea is one of Zentopia’s latest addition. The refreshing tea is a perfect way to wake up your body and mind in the morning or to enjoy as a mid-day pick-me-up.
CBD-Infused Iced Tea
If you’d rather stick with traditional black tea, try our variety of CBD-infused caffeinated teas. The teas come in two flavors—raspberry and peach and taste best when poured over ice.
Not everyone likes coffee, but they certainly enjoy the benefits of caffeine. That's why our CBD-infused teas are a great alternative for those who want a natural and refreshing way to get a boost of energy and focus. With just the right amount of CBD and caffeine, these teas can help you stay calm but alert and productive throughout the day.
Can I Mix CBD Oil and Energy Drinks?
Technically, you can mix CBD oil and energy drinks, but it's not recommended for two reasons: the oil won’t blend with the drink due to it not containing fat and the combination of CBD oil and the unhealthy ingredients like sugar and artificial flavors may counter the health and wellness benefits of CBD oil.
If you’re looking for a healthier alternative, try swapping energy drinks for CBD-infused caffeinated water you can drink either hot or cold, depending on your personal preference.
