This might be a headline that got your attention if you drink coffee religiously like the one-billion coffee drinkers in the world. You wake up and instantly think about that cup of joe and sleepily walk towards your brewing machine. We’ve been there – or maybe some of you haven’t. Maybe you don’t like the taste or can’t find your perfect cup, and that’s ok too! In a later blog, we will talk about mixing CBD with other food & drink so stay tuned for those!
As Americans we live in such a fast paced world. We’re always looking how to do something quicker, smarter, and more beneficial. Many people call our society a “instant gratification.” And while we guess that’s true, we’re just leveraging our time – right? You don’t want to use your extra 5 minutes getting ready in the morning taking all of your vitamins, medicines, and supplements. That’s why we, Revital Outdoors, are behind mixing our coffee with our broad-spectrum CBD products.
You could be wondering – why would I mix it? Cannabidiol coffee could be the ticket to calming your nerves while still getting the productiveness and buzz feeling that the caffeine will bring you. CBD can really assist in subduing the effect that caffeine has on the body.
Even though CBD can be controversial, the benefits of CBD are well known. CBD is an anti-inflammatory, and anti-seizure medicine that works for combating depression and promoting calmness. Many people take CBD for a while and don’t see immediate results so they stop taking it. However, it has been researched that CBD really starts to enhance your day-to-day if taken consistently. There’s no better way to ensure consistency like adding it into your morning coffee – something that you’re already doing each day!
While we realize some might still be skeptical – we hope to help inform our readers about the effects CBD can have on the body. Read a few reasons why adding CBD to your morning coffee could be beneficial:
Benefits of Infusing CBD in your Coffee:
1. Enhance Mental Awareness
Adding CBD can further enhance the feeling of mental awareness that is produced by caffeine due to the fact that CBD will interact with some of the same neurotransmitters that are in charge of carrying out those effects.
There are a few key neurotransmitters in the brain that control your mental awareness. The most important one is adenosine. Brief science lesson here – as more adenosine builds up, the neurons are becoming progressively slower at sending out messages to the rest of our body. This is why we often feel slow and tired. Due to this, we get tired and ultimately leads us to fall asleep at night.
However, caffeine works to block those effects of the adenosine neurotransmitter by attaching to the receptors themselves. This prevents adenosine from doing it’s job – A.K.A making you sleepy.
CBD actually appears to work by improving the efficiency of the adenosine receptors directly. On the other hand, CBD also interacts with serotonin which is known as the “happy” neurotransmitter. Feeling happier? That’s probably due to increased levels of serotonin activity!
How should I do it? That totally depends on your Revital Outdoors product. Let’s dive deeper into our recommendations about adding Revital Outdoors CBD to your morning coffee.
Softgels – Take 1 capsule by mouth and wash down with your favorite cup of brew.
Tinctures – Add a few drops directly into your coffee cup and bottoms up!
Gummies – Chew 1 before or after your morning coffee

2. No Uneasy Feeling Side-Effects
Many avid CBD users started their journey with CBD due to one of the best-known uses of CBD being that it aids in promoting calmness. CBD offers several separate mechanisms to achieve worried-reducing behavior. We’ve listed a few note-worthy ways that CBD can improve your anxiety.
- Increases GABA Activity which causes widespread relaxation at the nervous system
- Regulates hypothalamic function which is the region of our brain that controls the stress-response
- Relaxes the muscles which eases any tension
- Stops inflammation in the brain which is an underlying cause for anxiety
Each of these reasons could be the reason that you feel anxious or have anxiety and CBD works to improve those side-effects.
3. Experience Long-Term Benefits
Did you know that almost everything that enters your body needs to be processed by your liver in order to go through the elimination process of the body? If you didn’t you’re about to learn a science lesson. In order for the liver to do this, it uses a series of specialized enzymes (CYP enzymes) which disassemble drugs, cell byproducts, and other compounds in our bloodstream. Another interesting thing is that caffeine and cannabidiol are similar enough in structure that they require the same enzymes by the liver – CBP1A1, CYP1A2, CYP2D6, and CYP3A4. You might think that we just picked a random amount of letters and numbers to come up with that but it’s true!
However, there is a limit to the metabolizing power of the liver. If there is an unexpected increase in compounds such as caffeine and CBD, the liver gets backed up. Due to the fact that the liver can only process these compounds as fast as it can. You might be wondering what all this means – essentially, CBD and caffeine increase the duration of effects for one another.
It’s also important to note that if you’re taking CBD for a medically prescribed condition – you should consult with your doctor before taking CBD-infused coffee. This is due to the fact that accurate dosing is extremely important in the efficacy of these types. However, if you’re a rather normal healthy individual, you shouldn’t have a problem mixing the two as dosing isn’t as important. We also recommend limiting your daily intake of CBD infused coffee until you can see if your body has any side-effects. We usually tell our consumers to start off with CBD-infused coffee once per day. This means, if you’re someone who has multiple cups every morning – start infusing CBD in one each day and go from there. Science talks and studies have shown that CBD is effective at reducing various states of calmness during numerous experiments.
In conclusion, we don’t see the harm in mixing CBD in your morning cup of joe! That is – given that you are a relatively healthy individual, if not, please consult with your doctor before making any changes in your daily routine. Try it out and grab the Revital Outdoors Tincture of your choice as we offer various flavors and amounts. Let us know how you liked it whether writing a review, or messaging us on social media!
