A cup of coffee has the power to make or break a mood, so we believe that each cup of coffee should have rich and balanced flavor. Many of those looking to enrich their life with CBD will often add a product such as a tincture or an isolate to their coffee. This is a common shortcut, but it often interferes with the quality of the coffee. Isolate is pure CBD powder and is tasteless. Its main drawback is also its strength in that it is pure CBD. Dr. Raphael Mechoulam coined the term “the entourage effect” which means the effect created by all of the present cannabinoids working together. Since isolate is simply isolated CBD, using it alone won’t provide benefit from any other cannabinoids. Alternatively, tinctures are the most popular CBD product on the market and it is often made from broad or full spectrum oil. Tincture may be an easy way to enhance a cup of coffee, but its oily consistency doesn’t dissolve in coffee and you are left with a cup of coffee with a puddle of oil on the top and clinging to the sides. Full spectrum means that all of the plant’s phytochemicals are present such as THC, CBD and minor cannabinoids and terpenes. Terpenes are the oils in plants that provide flavor and aroma. Terpenes are most important when cannabis products are being inhaled, and don’t provide as much benefit when ingested. Since terpenes are often present in tinctures, they can upset the flavor of the coffee, rendering it less enjoyable.
If asked to mention one thing that is necessary to achieve goals, one might think of consistency. Success of any kind is the accumulation of habitual acts that continue well after the goal has been reached. We all know that it takes years of study to become an expert just as it takes regular exercise to gain strength. Supplementing your diet with cannabinoids works in a similar way. In order to reap the numerous benefits of CBD, it’s important to take small amounts on a consistent and frequent basis. This is why coffee is a fantastic way to ingest CBD. It’s not to say that one can’t consistently supplement CBD via any of the popular delivery methods such as gummies, chocolates, or tinctures, but the margin for error is considerably larger as there is a possibility of forgetting to take it. We’ve mentioned before that the best things in life often require minimal effort and should organically fit into everyday life. For many people, the act of making coffee is the first thing they do as they wake up. It is the ritual carried out to start the day on the right foot with vigor. This is why we prefer to infuse CBD into our beans. It allows us to consistently enjoy CBD while indulging in craft coffee and avoiding any added steps.
Why Make CBD Coffee?
Word is getting out that coffee and CBD pair beautifully. The CBD offsets the jitters that some people experience with caffeine while the coffee stimulates, awakens the senses, and uplifts the soul. As CBD derived products gain popularity, people are searching for the right way to incorporate the cannabinoid into their lives. At Sträva, we think there is no better way to start the day than with a fresh, hand roasted, perfectly infused cup of coffee.
So how do we make our CBD coffee so good? It’s simple. Like many of you, we love great coffee and we love the added benefits of hemp. We start with top quality raw ingredients then roast and infuse each batch with craftsmanship and purpose. With every cup we strive to offer you a delicious and meaningful experience.
The Flavor of CBD Coffee
Ready to try some for yourself? Sträva offers WHOLE BEAN, K-CUP 2.0 and NESPRESSO compatible pods.
Compare that with something like Absorb Ultra+, which has a bioavailability of 99%, meaning that the body can use 9.9mg from the same 10mg dose, and you can see why drinking CBD coffee is a much more efficient way of taking CBD.
The second, and arguably more important factor, is that CBD oil is made to be taken sublingually – that means it’s made to be held under the tongue in order for the body to absorb the compounds through the blood vessels in your mouth.
Make your coffee on top of the CBD shot as you normally would – whether it’s instant or freshly ground, black or white, or you take it with or without sugar – there’s no need for any special measures. Stir.
If you’re one of these people, you might have wondered whether you can add your CBD to your morning coffee.
