CBD and Caffeine: Fighting Anxiety and Those Morning Jitters

So you’ve just purchased your first CBD tincture and you aren’t sure how to start incorporating it into your daily routine. You want to make sure you’re experiencing all of CBD’s calming benefits, but you’re apprehensive of dropping the oil directly under your tongue. 

Good news! The list of food and drinks that you can add your CBD oil to is endless. And one of the most surprising drinks may already be an important part of your day.

Do you begin most mornings with a coffee or tea? Despite relying on that caffeine to give you an extra boost of motivation to start your day, do you sometimes feel jittery and anxious after more than one cup? 

Try adding your favorite tincture to your coffee and get the best of both worlds: extra energy and focus from the caffeine plus a decreased chance of jitters. You get to be alert and ready to take on the day, but the calming effects of CBD help ward off caffeine-related nerves.

CBD and Caffeine: Do They Work Together?

So caffeine wakes you up. But CBD can be so calming that many people use it at bedtime to fall asleep easier. You may be worried that the two will cancel each other out or that your cup of coffee will reduce how relaxed you feel from your daily dose of CBD. Luckily, just because CBD calms you and coffee is a stimulant, this doesn’t mean they counteract each other.

Adding your CBD tincture to your caffeinated drink allows you to enjoy the healthy benefits of coffee – including antioxidants, decreased fatigue and increased alertness, and improved short-term memory – while suppressing what’s making you jittery. Combine the two and set yourself up for success by dulling the adverse effects of caffeine with the calming effects of CBD. 

Extra Benefits

Maybe the jitters aren’t the main thing keeping you from enjoying a caffeinated drink or two. Many people avoid coffee because of the inevitable upset stomach they experience after consuming it. Adding CBD to your coffee may be the solution. Since CBD has been shown to relieve nausea, adding some to coffee can help counteract any abdominal discomfort.

CBD oil is also a great solution for anyone who is extra sensitive to caffeine.

Finding Your Perfect Formula

Always keep in mind each person can react differently to this combo. Don’t assume that the amounts of CBD and caffeine that works for one person will also be your perfect formula. Listen to your body and pay careful attention to how mixing the two makes you feel. It might take a few tweaks before you find the recipe that works for you.

If it’s your first time mixing CBD and caffeine, you’ll likely need to test different amounts of both before settling on the perfect daily drink. If you’re a seasoned coffee drinker, start with your normal cup and add in a small drop of CBD oil.

Slowly increase the amount of CBD until you’re happy with how your body and mind feel after drinking your coffee. Through trial and error, you’ll reach that perfect amount that allows you to feel alert and focused from the caffeine but still relaxed and prepared for the day with no jitters or anxiety.

One more thing to remember: try not to add CBD oil directly to a piping hot cup of coffee or tea. Iced coffee drinkers are good to go, but the benefits and potency of CBD can be diminished when exposed to higher temperatures. Just give your drink a couple of minutes to cool before adding your tincture of choice.

CBD and Your Favorite Drink

You definitely don’t have to stick with coffee or tea. Fans of other caffeinated beverages can add their CBD oil to their favorite drinks, too. Need some inspiration to get you started?
