What are the benefits of mixing CBD and coffee?
In a nation where over 80% of its residents drink coffee, it’s no wonder that we run on caffeine and anxiety. What if the anxiety part could be mitigated, though? Cannabidiol (CBD) coffee could be just the ticket to calming those nerves while still getting you nice and buzzy.
There are a few properties to coffee that make it the drink of choice for so many. For one thing, the aroma actually has anti-anxiety properties. Its rich smell just makes us feel good, which can also help to relieve nervousness. Also, coffee is a natural antioxidant.
The benefits of CBD are also well known, though controversial. It’s understood that CBD is an anti-inflammatory, anti-seizure medicine that’s good at combating depression and anxiety. However, without other cannabinoids — even THC in low doses — CBD isn’t as effective. It still performs, just at a lower rate. Additionally, it needs to be taken consistently to really work any wonders.
CBD can be ingested in many ways besides dropping tincture into coffee or getting CBD fueled coffee pods or packages. There are vape pens, gummies, capsules, and tincture, to name just a few. But any of these methods can be implemented at the same time as a cup o’ Joe, thus also interacting with the coffee and mellowing it out a tad.
Really, CBD coffee is the ultimate combination (except CBD/THC coffee, that takes the cake!). For one thing, because CBD is known to be calming and even to make one sleepy, it combines with the caffeine to even you out, even after that third cup. In fact, if you’re drinking three cups of coffee, combining them with CBD or even a little weed is highly recommended.
To reiterate, if you are suffering from a serious medical condition, putting CBD isolate into your coffee isn’t the ultimate way to get your CBD therapy; you’ll need to consult with a CBD and entourage effect expert for that. However, if you’re healthy and simply want your morning fix, but are just a little on edge, CBD coffee is likely right up your alley. Wake up and smell the cannabinoid/caffeine combo!

How to make weed coffee: The CBD-infusion process
While caffeine and weed aren’t necessarily an intuitive combination, studies show there are a number of health benefits when the two are brought together, with positive effects of CBD-infused coffee ranging from reduced anxiety, to chronic pain relief, to – somewhat ironically – combating insomnia. Similarly, infusing with your hemp oil products or our hemp protein powder provides beneficial plant-based protein, dietary fiber, and a number of vitamins and minerals.

How to make CBD oil
While our coffee beans do not currently come pre-CBD infused, learning how to make your own CBD oil is simple. Just follow these 4 simple steps.
- To begin, grind your preferred strain of marijuana and place it evenly on an oven pan and cover with tinfoil.
- Bake it at a low heat, around 220˚C, for 40 minutes to an hour. Then mix the ground weed with a cup of carrier oil, such as olive or coconut oil.
- Pour the mixture into a saucepan with one cup of water and simmer for 3 hours.
- Strain the mixture to get rid of excess leaves and stems. The CBD oil can be safely stored for up to two months.

How to infuse coffee beans with CBD oil or Hemp oil Products
Now that you have a supply of CBD oil, you can make your own weed coffee. While this can be as simple as putting a few drops of CBD oil in your coffee, you will require an infuser mug or French press for the best results.
Recommended Dosage: 1ml of CBD oil per 6oz of coffee.
- Grind whole Fusion coffee beans to medium-coarse and put 2tbsp into your infuser mug or French press.
- Drop 1ml of CBD oil into the filter of your infuser mug, or into your French press; mix well.
- Pour boiling water into the infuser mug or French press.
- With infuser mugs, cover with lid and wait at least 3-5 minutes. For French presses, press coffee grounds down to the bottom and wait 3-5 minutes.
- Voila! Pour and enjoy!
