CBD is known to enhance the mental alertness induced by caffeine in coffee and reduces annoying side-effects like anxiety and jitters.

One of the most popular trend nowadays is infusing CBD with your food and drinks.
You can even buy coffee grounds that come pre-mixed with CBD. More than just a marketing trend, there are several advantages to doing this — the relaxing effects of the CBD help reduce the unwanted side-effects of caffeine consumption.
CBD & Coffee: The Ultimate Combination
Caffeine, the active ingredient in coffee, is by far the most popular stimulant on earth.
It’s estimated that over 2.2 billion cups of coffee are consumed every day. Tea, another source of caffeine, is even more popular, with as many as 3 billion people drinking tea daily.
No other stimulant comes close to the popularity of caffeine.
Our obsession with productivity might be to blame for our high caffeine consumption. Caffeine helps us wake up early in the morning for work, focus more intently at work, and even helps us work longer hours by delaying fatigue.
But caffeine is far from perfect.
Most people who drink coffee are familiar with side-effects. It can make us feel jittery, anxious — sometimes, we can even feel our heart skipping beats or pounding out of our chest. All of these effects actually hurt our ability to be productive — counteracting the very reason for using it.
This is where CBD comes in. It’s a perfect solution for eliminating these negative side-effects, allowing the caffeine to do the job we wanted it to in the first place.
What the Research Says
There’s a ton of research available for coffee (and caffeine) as well as CBD — but not much information about how the two work in combination.
For the past several decades, the hemp plant (and its primary ingredient, CBD), were lumped together with marijuana. This was a problem for researchers because, despite the fact that hemp is completely non-psychoactive, its relationship to marijuana (a psychoactive form of the plant) made it very difficult to study due to legal restrictions.
But things are different now.
CBD is legal throughout most of the world, and research is thriving. In fact, research is coming out of all corners of the earth on different facets of CBD. As more people are starting to mix CBD with their coffee for added benefits, it won’t be long before more research comes out examining the interaction between these two substances.
Here’s what we know about how CBD and caffeine work together.
