CBD Coffee: What is it and how do I make it?
Move over oat milk, a new coffee trend is in town: CBD coffee.
In the UK, we now drink approximately 95 million cups of coffee per day. While our consumption hasn’t overtaken tea consumption - we are British after all - we are knocking back more of the caffeine-filled stuff than ever before.
Caffeine famously gives drinkers a short high that often ends in a crash. More than one coffee in a short time-period can give you jitters and make you more stressed. To avoid the negative effects of coffee but still get the delicious taste, many are combining it with CBD oil.
But what exactly is CBD?
CBD, aka cannabidiol is one of over a hundred active compounds found in the cannabis plant. CBD oil is extracted from the stalks, leaves, and buds of hemp plants and typically, strains are chosen that are known to have higher CBD levels in order to maximize the potency of the end product.
How do I add it to my coffee?
Mixing CBD oil into coffee is simple - no barista needed! If you want to give CBD oil in coffee a go all you need to do is add a few drops to plain coffee. CBD oil typically has an ‘earthy’ taste that many people enjoy. The London Botanist has a great 5% CBD oil that would work perfectly in a black coffee.
Not a fan of the earthy flavour? No problem.
If you prefer a frothy coffee you can blend CBD oil into milk - this will help mask the earthy taste of CBD. Or, if you want to really up your coffee game, you can add a few drops of George Botanicals’ Chocolate & Hazelnut CBD Oil. It’s subtle sweet flavour will add an extra flavour to a ‘lil’ latte.
