CBD & Anxiety

CBD With Your Morning Coffee 

If you have done a brief search on the internet to learn the benefits of CBD, then you have probably seen it tied closely to anxiety relief. For many people, they want to enjoy a cup of strong coffee in the morning to kick their day off with an energy burst. However, they might also be facing stress on the job, during the morning commute, or even when taking the kids to school. The coffee might wake you up, but it can leave you shaky and jittery. Have you heard about CBD with your morning coffee?  Well, it might be the perfect way to start the day off right.

Adding CBD to Your Morning 

CBD is being touted as a possible stress-reliever and anti-anxiety natural supplement. Those things sound nice if you have a busy day ahead of you. Mix the CBD with your coffee to create what could possibly be a magic elixir that spurs your superhuman strengths. Okay, that might be a little bit of an exaggeration, but it sure can’t hurt if you are under stress at the office or dreading the morning drive to work. 

How to Take CBD With Coffee

There are coffee products that are already laced with CBD being sold at various marketplaces. However, if you just want an occasional mood pick-up or a daily boost then adding your daily dose of CBD oil to a piping hot cup of java might be the perfect solution. However, as you might already know, CBD tinctures work best when absorbed sublingually (under the tongue) so your best bet is to take a morning dose of CBD after you enjoy your cup of coffee. Your body will then rapidly absorb the CBD sublingually. If you prefer to use CBD capsules, then take the CBD with a sip of your morning brew.

Is it Safe to Take CBD Before Work or Driving? 

Many people worry about the safety of CBD because they compare it to the THC found in cannabis. However, CBD is a non-psychoactive, so it will not get you ‘high.’  By law, in the US all CBD products must contain less than .3 percent THC and in Europe less than .2 percent THC. The tiny trace amount has no effect on your mental or physical state. You can take CBD supplements before work or driving without any fear or reservation.

CBD for Stress and Anxiety

Within the human body are receptors that make up the endocannabinoid system. The receptors receive signals. CBD appears to interact with the CB1 and CB2 receptors located in the peripheral and central nervous systems. It is believed that the CBD might somehow alter the body’s serotonin signals. Serotonin acts as a neurotransmitter. When the body’s serotonin is too low, some people suffer bouts of depression which is why selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are often prescribed. This is perhaps why CBD is favored by people for stress and anxiety reduction during the day.
