The health benefits of CBD infused coffee are the same as you can get from any CBD product: reduced inflammation, reduced anxiety, and better quality of sleep just to name a few. If you are a coffee lover, this can be a great way to get your daily dose in. Recently several companies have started offering CBD coffee pods. We also have some exclusive promo codes for cbdMD! Remember: most K-Cups and coffee pods are recyclable! You’ll need to separate the foil top and the plastic pod part, but it’s a small thing you can do to help take care of the planet.
cbdMD Promo Codes
I always recommend that people who are new to using CBD products check out cbdMD. They make a very high quality product and their customer service team is excellent at making recommendations and answering questions about dosing. Their prices are very reasonable, and they always have coupon promotions running as well which just makes them more affordable.
Now, they don’t produce CBD coffee yet themselves, however you can use their CBD oil in any cup of coffee, whether it came out of Keurig, an espresso machine, or your standard Mr. Coffee machine. Remember the Bulletproof coffee craze a few years ago that had MCT oils added to it? It works the same way, you can just add a couple of drops of oil to your morning coffee. And sure you can go ahead and add the butter in there too, it’s surprisingly delicious in coffee!
Where to buy CBD Coffee Pods & K-Cups
Due to the still legally ambiguous nature of CBD products, you won’t be able to just pick up CBD coffee pods at your local grocery store or off Amazon. You may be able to find them on some CBD retailer websites, otherwise you can get them by going directly to the source and purchasing from the manufacturers themselves. Even more difficult to find than CBD coffee is pods that are compatible with K-Cup machines. Here are a few suppliers:
Sträva Craft Coffee: This company usually comes out on top of most CBD coffee lists, and for good reason. Their coffee is delicious, and it comes in a variety of flavours and CBD doses. Their CBD coffee pods come in either a medium or dark roast, and you can choose from 4mg, 10mg, or 20mg of CBD per cup. Their K-Cups are also recyclable.
Naked CBD: One thing that’s interesting about Naked CBD’s NANO coffee is that it claims to have 10x the bioavailability of other CBD products. I’m not sure if it’s the caffeine that helps with absorption, or something that they have done during processing. Their website did not feature any information on how many milligrams of CBD each cup would contain.
Diamond CBD: If you’re looking for the highest dose of CBD with your infused coffee, Diamond CBD’s Chill coffee had the highest amount that I found at 25mg per cup. They were also 55% off as of the writing of this article! The coffee pods currently have 45 reviews on the Diamond CBD website, with a 4.5 stars out of 5.
Kannaway: I recommend this one the least, only because the company appears to be one of those MLM pyramid-scheme type of companies. You have to pay a membership fee to shop there, non-members can’t buy anything. And okay that’s the same business model as Costco, except for that Costco doesn’t force monthly minimum orders. Unless you don’t have any other options, I’d avoid this one.
Hemp Coffee vs. CBD Coffee
This one can be confusing because CBD is produced from the hemp plant, but not all hemp-based coffees have CBD. Hemp coffee contains omega-6 and omega-3 lineolic acids, but not the cannabidiols of CBD oil. Osmell Coffee makes a hemp infused coffee pod that will work in a K-Cup compatible machine and is available on Amazon. Don’t be fooled though, although they tout this coffee as having all the health benefits of hemp and being free of THC, it is also free of CBD as well. And while yes hemp is good for you, it’s not going to have the anti-inflammatory and anti-anxiety benefits that most CBD users are looking for. Hemp coffee will you give that normal caffeine kick, although the inclusion of the omega-6 and omega-3 acids from the hemp will probably regulate your body’s caffeine absorption rate. This means you will be alert and focused without the jittery feeling or shaky hands.
Make sure CBD Coffee is legal in your state before ordering
As we mentioned above, CBD products are still in a bit of legal limbo these days. They are legal at the federal level, but not in some states. CBD that is derived from the hemp plant and has concentrations of THC less than 0.3% is typically okay in most places, but you will definitely want to check the laws on that first. There is also CBD derived from the marijuana plant which does have THC in higher concentrations, that is still not legal in many places so make sure you check which type of product you are buying carefully.
