Caffeine Jitters? How CBD Coffee can ease your problems

friends having coffee

It’s common knowledge that excess caffeine can cause anxiety, or as it is more commonly known ‘the jitters’. The more, full blast coffee you drink, the more you will exacerbate your ‘shakes’ and anxiety.

If you love the taste of coffee, and can’t bear the thought of being without it, never fear, help is at hand with Calm Recovery CBD coffee, which contains full spectrum and organic hemp extract, and that really has a smooth and luxurious taste.

At Calm Recovery you can be assured of the freshest coffee on the market. Our coffee beans may be picked and packed overseas, but they are roasted and prepared to ship to you right here in the UK.  We ensure that our beans are sourced from prime bean suppliers such as Brazil and Sumatra, so what ends up in your cup will be the finest. We believe in Fair Trade suppliers, so you will know that producers overseas are getting their correct payment for the goods that they produce.

Why is Calm Recovery better for you?

Caffeine is the unwelcome guest in a good cup of coffee. When standard coffee is consumed over a period, it can increase anxiety and affect your wellbeing. If drunk in excess, it can certainly make you agitated, nervous, anxious and above all change your demeanour.

After copious amounts of testing, the WHO (World Health Organisation) has concluded that CBD in coffee, or other goods, causes no harm to the human body – in fact, the contrary, as it has no psychoactive effects whatsoever. It is important to remember that it contains no THC, the property that causes a ‘high’ in cannabis smokers. In fact, it is completely the opposite – it negates the nasty effects and promotes the beneficial effects such as an aura of calm and relaxation. Surveys report that it also eases aches and pains, and accelerates recovery, even after a hard session in the gym.

There is no need stop there. Try Calm Recovery’s CBD Hot Chocolate – again it’s smooth and velvety with a delicious chocolatey taste. Even better, drink it at bedtime for a wonderful nights’ sleep! All we advise is that you do not exceed 6 cups per day of either, you may be so relaxed at work (which is where people do not realise just how many coffees they have in one day) that you may fall asleep!

How does Calm Recovery sell their CBD Drinks?

Customers can buy individual packages of CBD ground coffee, but there has been a large increase for us in sales to coffee shops, gyms and other outlets who have realised that CBD coffee and chocolate is here to stay. Coffee shops are springing up all over the country due to the popularity of our products, so supply and demand is increasing daily. Remember, it is totally legal and above all, more beneficial than standard coffee. Even the large coffee manufacturers are seriously considering jumping on the CBD wagon to increase their sales.

If you are an outlet such as a coffee shop or gym, consider buying CBD Coffee Wholesale in the UK, direct from us. We provide varying tastes from CBD Coffee Light and Bright, to CBD Coffee Dark Knight – not forgetting our tasty hot chocolate.

All forms of CBD coffee grind can be supplied by us to suit whatever method you use to make your drink, whether Cafetiere, Cold Brew, Aeropress, Stove Top, Espresso or Drip (V6). Calm Recovery also provide different pack sizes and varying content of CBD in each product. It’s the best of all worlds to be able to choose what you want, when you want.

At Calm Recovery, we don’t make medical claims, we just supply the facts and the feedback from our customers. In this hamster wheel of a life that we all lead, CBD Coffee can be an easy solution to reduces those nerves and anxiety and stopping ‘the jitters’.

Make your CBD Coffee economical every day

Obviously, the cost of CBD coffee will be more expensive on the High Street in your local coffee shop outlet. If you buy for your home, think about buying yourself an insulated coffee cup. You can brew up your own coffee in the morning to have with breakfast, and then take one to work with you. Most insulated cups/flasks stay hot for around 12 hours, so you will still have the perfect coffee for that mid-morning break.

Can CBD make you happier?

Lets find out…

CBD is the new health poster child. Except this is one that’s here to stay. CBD has seen a massive surge in the market recently with its value expected to reach £1 billion by 2025.

But why is this?

It has been proven to not only benefit a healthy lifestyle and contribute to overall wellbeing in a plethora of ways, but a large number of people have reported feeling lighter, happier and more open to the joys of day to day life – all thanks to CBD.

These amazing benefits have been linked to the effect that CBD has on serotonin receptors.

Studies have shown that, with consistent daily use, individuals have been able to effectively manage stress levels and sleep better – two of the main catalysts of steady mental wellbeing.

Pain-relief and anti-inflammatory properties are just a few of the other miracles that CBD is capable of too. It’s no mystery that combatting these problems helps us to feel more content, sprightly and happier in general.

According to research undertaken in 2014, CBD can also be used as an alternative treatment for depression. An important factor in managing depression is to maintain healthy serotonin levels. Healthy serotonin can impact a number of functions in the body as well as inducing feelings of happiness and well-being when at normal levels.

While managing mood is something that we all know we should be doing, often it seems to have dropped to the bottom of our list.

Let’s get stuck into some ways that CBD can reverse that.

CBD and a Calmer Mind

Day to day life is filled with stresses, woes and dramas. We all have them, don’t worry.

Managing mental health should be one of our top priorities but sometimes we get too bogged down with the more practical and sometimes boring things in life. So why not try something that we can incorporate into our daily routines and habits?

It really is as simple as that.

CBD and a Healthy Lifestyle

CBD is the perfect companion for healthy lifestyle changes such as getting enough rest, exercise and mental stimulation. We can all make our lives change for the better.

Nowadays it’s not uncommon for CBD to be used in all manner of ways, even massage therapies! And with a wide range of CBD infused beverages and edibles becoming readily available, it has become even easier to make small changes every day for the betterment of our health.

CBD has been found to improve overall mood and many people are using it as a natural alternative to over-prescribed anti-depressants, which are often full to brim with chemicals we can’t even pronounce. Not to mention their appalling relapse rates, side effects and costs to the patient.

Statistics have shown that individuals supplementing with CBD daily have reported an elevated feeling in mood, a greater ability to manage stress and an increased quality of sleep.

There are also a number of articles and journals that advocate the use of CBD in order to increase libido and self-esteem. It has been proven that having a healthy sex-life and higher self-esteem can boost morale, productivity, benefit concentration and overall enjoyment of life.

There’s not many better ways to put a smile on your face than that!

So if you are feeling a bit down in the dumps and you think you’ve tried everything, maybe it’s time to reach for a more natural supplement to give you that uplifting feeling you have been longing for.

How can you get a bit more CBD in your life?

With a wide range of CBD beverages such as coffee and hot chocolate alongside an array of tasty edibles to suit your needs, the list is infinite when it comes to getting some CBD in your life.

Whether you’re a coffee kind of guy or a chocolate kind of girl, there’s something for everyone. In our modern era, you don’t need to do the guesswork, it’s already done for you.

Whatever tickles your fancy, it’s probably available. From gluten free CBD edibles to caffeine or de-caffeinated CBD coffee, the choice yours.

While habits are often harder to break, we can just try baby steps. Small changes are all we need to make big progress. Some people think we need to change everything about our lifestyles in order to reap the best benefits but that’s just not true.

While having healthy habits can be great for us, it could just be easier to simply substitute one thing for another. Try changing your cup of Joe in the morning for one that contains CBD and go from there.

Easy.

How do caffeine and CBD work together?

How do caffeine and CBD work together?

If you’ve ever heard of CBD (cannabidiol) then you might be surprised to hear it associated with a stimulant such as caffeine.  This may be due to the fact that caffeine is known to give you a boost in energy, whereas CBD is associated with having a calming and relaxing effect. 

Two seemingly opposite substances?

Right. But also wrong…

Let us explain how these two substances work well when fused together. 

What is CBD?

CBD is a chemical compound found in the cannabis plant, unlike tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD is non-psychoactive, which means there is no associated ‘high’. CBD simply doesn’t have a strong effect on cognitive brain activity – perfect if you’re looking to actually function post-ingestion!

The cannabis plant has two main species; Hemp and Marijuana – both of which contain CBD. Hemp contains more CBD and considerably lower levels of THC in comparison to Marijuana.

CBD is known to have an array of health benefits and new research is being conducted each day to support these claims. The many benefits of CBD include, a reduction in stress and anxiety, as well as helping with chronic pain.  Some studies have even showed how CBD could be used to help reduce the risk of certain types of cancers.

What is Caffeine?

We’re all clued up on hemp, but what about the chalk to CBD’s proverbial Cheese?

Caffeine is a naturally occurring substance commonly found in tea, coffee and cacao plants with more than 60 plant species known to contain caffeine. 

It is also a substance that can be produced synthetically and added to certain foods, drinks and medications. Caffeine is prevalent in coffee and it is the world’s number one choice when seeking that morning wake up call! 

Around 80% of the worlds population consume caffeinated drinks on a daily basis. Caffeine works by stimulating the central nervous system causing an increase in mental alertness.

There are many, many studies to show that consuming small doses of caffeine can have advantages such as, enhanced exercise performance and promoting fat loss by speeding up metabolism.

How CBD and Caffeine interact with each other

So CBD and caffeine are miracle workers in their own right. But what happens when you put them together.

Say, in a coffee?

Unlike regular coffee, CBD infused coffee has been shown to give users a boost in mental awareness minus the jittery effect that regular coffee can give. In this article written by Melissa Malamut she describes the feeling as  “Just enough to take the edge off, but not enough to make you feel like you’re under the influence of a drug”. 

CBD infused coffee has even been reported to induce high concentration levels and some users claim to develop a more optimistic attitude.

Sounds good to us!

Benefits of taking them in tandem

When taking a break from caffeine, users can suffer from withdrawal symptoms. These symptoms can include ailments such as headaches, fatigue, low energy and poor concentration.  CBD is known to help combat these side effects when deciding to go on a caffeine detox, helping reducing headaches.

Coffee and CBD are both known to boast antioxidant properties too. Antioxidants are a key player in the wellness of your body and play a crucial role as they rid the body of toxins and protect our cells from damage. 

Antioxidants neutralise potentially damaging oxidising agents in the bloodstream while improving the health of cells and reducing the risk of developing diseases in the process. There are no limits to how many antioxidants your body needs so the more the better!

CBD can help with muscle recovery after a grueling gym session too. The reason for this is because CBD is proven to have anti-inflammatory properties.

Caffeine can be used as a pre-workout, giving you that boost in energy before a workout, and the anti-inflammatory effects of CBD will help your muscles recover, making them quite the pair for gym goers.

Where to find CBD caffeine products

The CBD infused coffee industry is in its relative infancy and isn’t as well-known as other CBD products. 

At Calm Recovery we offer a variety of CBD coffee blends and even have CBD infused Hot chocolate with a Vegan choice also available.  We are the first company in the UK to offer CBD infused coffee syrup with a selection of edibles being added to our product range in the near future!

We have witnessed the benefit of CBD firsthand and we truly believe that CBD infused products can benefit so many lives in a positive way. 

The CBD industry is projected to rise to 22 billion dollars by 2022. With more products being infused each year there is no limit to what can be done with our little plant.
