Why CBD Coffee Could Support Stressed Workers
CBD Coffee For Your Busiest Days At Work
The world of work has been a seedbed of uncertainty over the past 18 months. Three-quarters of UK workers are actively looking for a new job according to recent research from Reed and furlough has recently come to an end. It’s no surprise then that monthly searches for ‘new job anxiety’ are up 126% and searches for ‘returning to work anxiety’ are up 2,000% compared to March 2020. Whether you’re a new-starter, working from home or returning to the office, it’s natural to feel a bit anxious at the thought of the working day ahead.
While coffee is imperative for many 9 to 5-ers, the residual effects of caffeine may often serve to worsen any anxiety you may be experiencing. For more balance and less burnout at work, try mixing CBD oil into coffee first thing. Set yourself up for the day, support concentration and settle any racing thoughts with a CBD infused coffee boost.
What are the benefits of drinking CBD coffee in the workplace?
Short for Cannabidiol, CBD is a naturally occurring compound found within hemp, a strain of the cannabis plant. By adding CBD to our daily routine, we can top up the cannabinoids that run our body’s internal endocannabinoid system (the part that regulates our sleep, mood and appetite). Whilst stress and anxiety can spike or drop our mood, CBD may support our mood by interacting with our endocannabinoid system.
As we all know too well, stress at work can easily build and start to affect our wellbeing, which is where CBD infused coffee comes in. If caffeine makes you feel alert, what happens when you add a busy working day full of distractions into the mix? Alertness becomes a state of high alert that can’t be easily sustained. Whilst caffeine can cause nervousness and restlessness, adding CBD to coffee may help to moderate energy highs and lows.
A Redditor recently asked if others were adding CBD oil to morning coffee after sharing that it seemed to ‘smooth out the caffeine and leave a lovely aware, focussed calmness’.
As Ausra reviewed on Trustpilot, her partner feels ‘calm, focused’ after mixing CBD oil with his morning coffee.
Should I take CBD oil in the morning?
Love Hemp founders, Tony Calamita and Tom Rowland, are advocates of adding it to your daily routine: “CBD and coffee is the perfect start to the day. Coffee is part of our everyday morning routine, as is CBD, so it goes hand in hand to combine the two. The perfect combination of a caffeine hit to get you going, and the CBD to keep you feeling your best all day.”
Martyn reported that whilst he found the Love Hemp CBD chocolate balls ‘ideal, ‘the drops in a coffee worked’ too.
To get the most out of your CBD, keep it a consistent part of your daily routine. We recommend taking your CBD daily for three weeks to start feeling the CBD oil benefits. If you automatically reach for your coffee cup every morning, adding in 10 drops of our 1,200mg CBD equals a healthy dose of 10mg.
How to add CBD into coffee
So, let’s work out the best way to add CBD oil to coffee - recipe for brighter mornings incoming. According to our recent Instagram poll, 67% of you prefer adding more than 10mg of CBD to your coffee. We recommend gradually introducing CBD into your routine with 10mg twice per day, then increasing the dosage to 20mg twice daily after a week depending on how you’re feeling. From here, you can work up to the maximum daily dose of 70mg CBD.
With our CBD liquid oil drops ranking as the most popular method of taking CBD, creating your own CBD coffee is easy. To work out the correct CBD oil dosage in your coffee, just match the strength of your chosen CBD oil to the number of drops required. For example, 1,200mg CBD oil only needs 10 drops for 10mg CBD.
“We recommend adding CBD oil to your morning coffee to easily make it a part of your routine,” say Tony Calamita and Tom Rowland. “You’ll never forget to take it if it’s next to your coffee station! Depending on each individual, anywhere between 20-50mg is a good dose.”
