With all the buzz surrounding CBD in the health, wellness, and beauty industry today, people are getting curious. Everybody wants to get their hands-on various CBD products to see what this mysterious ingredient can do to improve their lives. From a dietary supplement to beauty oil products, CBD, or cannabidiol is now almost everywhere.
Since the FDA approved a drug containing CBD in the year 2018, the number of studies on this chemical compound’s uses and benefits has grown massively.
We can now find it in massage oils to soothe muscle pain, beauty products to promote healthy skin and hair, and even gummies to help reduce anxiety. But what’s more interesting is CBD oil’s recent popularity amongst coffee lovers as an additive to promote happiness.
What is CBD and where does it come from?
If you live in a state where CBD is legal, you may have heard of coffee shops offering CBD infused coffee. But what is CBD and where does it come from? And what has it got to do with your happiness?
If you haven’t already heard, CBD is one of the hundreds of active chemical compounds found in the hemp plant. Many people are wondering whether they will get high from using CBD as a medicine or a dietary supplement. The straightforward answer is no.
CBD comes from a different strain of the Cannabis Sativa plant. It does not contain any significant amounts of the mind-altering chemical compound THC. Anyone who uses it will therefore not get high or test positive on a drug test.
CBD in your coffee
Certified coffee fans know about bulletproof coffee and why having healthy oil products in your diet is good for your body. Now that we have eliminated any doubt about whether CBD can get you high, it’s time to look at how you can add CBD oil to your coffee.
Nutritional benefits of CBD oil
Unlike hemp seed oil that’s cold-pressed from the seeds of the hemp plant. We get CBD from an entirely different extraction method from the stems, leaves, flowers, and seeds of industrial hemp.
If you think hemp seed oil is packed with tons of nutrients, wait until you hear about what’s in every drop of cannabidiol oil. One good reason it is a favorite among adults is that it is a safe and healthy source of protein for the proper regulation of tissues and organs.
Pure hemp oil also contains high amounts of fiber for a healthy digestive system, lowered risk of colon cancer, and normal cholesterol and blood sugar levels. Moreover, it has all the essential fatty acids necessary for the proper regulation of the immune system.
CBD oil is rich in Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids but has the correct ratio of both these fatty acids to prevent inflammation and lower one’s risk of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.
How do you add CBD oil to your coffee?
The thing about CBD oil is that it’s hydrophobic, meaning it does not mix well with water. But this fact does not deter coffee lovers from infusing their coffee with CBD. They have found ways to get as much of this miracle oil into their system through their daily cup of coffee.

How does this CBD coffee recipe promote happiness?
The mere thought of holding a hot cup of cinnamon coffee in your hands brings so much joy and a sense of calm. While they say that happiness is a choice and that anyone can choose to be happy regardless of external circumstance, anyone can also choose to make pure hemp oil part of their daily food intake and spark happiness from deep within.
Because CBD is a phytocannabinoid or cannabinoid derived from plants, it carries loads of essential fatty acids, particularly Omega 3 fatty acids known to help the human brain to combat depression and anxiety.
Omega 3 fatty acids have three types: ALA, EPA, and DHA, and among the tree, EPA appears to be the most effective in warding off depression. Scientific studies reveal that people with regular intake of Omega 3 fatty acids in their diet are less likely to get depressed or anxious.
There are many natural sources of Omega 3, but CBD has become the favorite of many nutritionists because of its ability to mimic the human body’s endocannabinoids, making it easier for the human endocannabinoid system to recognize.
The phytocannabinoids in CBD works hand in hand with the human endocannabinoid system or ECS. It works in the production of the so-called happy hormones serotonin and endorphins whenever the human body is faced with too much stress or fatigue.
A regular intake of CBD through your daily cup of coffee can, therefore, dramatically increase your happiness levels and overall sense of wellbeing.
Where can I get CBD?
CBD is available in different forms. CBD fans can find gummies, rubs, capsules for dietary supplementation, and even CBD cookies. But the most popular in the market today is the CBD oil tinctures that come in bottles.
In states where CBD is legal, you can find CBD oil in health stores or even online. Just make sure to check the label and look for full-spectrum hemp oil on the list of ingredients to see to it that you get the most value for your money.
Also, it is essential to check the legality of CBD and hemp products in your area before making any purchase.
