CBD and Coffee?
So just yesterday a local coffee company announced a partnership with a supplier of CDB oil and they are serving up a CBD infused Coffee beverage.
First thing is what is the buzz around CBD Oil? Why is it in the news?
The Endocannabinoid System is an immerging area of study in science. Within the system various chemical compounds called cannabinoids communicate via other body systems such as the Nervous System, Digestive System etc. CBD is cannabinoid which is a chemical constituent found in Hemp. CBD is one of over 100 cannabinoids found in cannabis. It is extracted from the stem of cannabis and does not include THC from the marijuana plant. You won’t get high from CBD.
Our body also produces cannabinoids and many other plants have cannabinoids as well. CBD is simply a chemical compound that can assist in messaging between our various body systems.
I must digress before I lose your attention. For more in-depth information please listen to or read my Trainer’s article as it relates to our overall health. My friend Tom explains it much better that I. https://tomnikkola.com/hemp-essential-oils-and-the-endocannabinoid-system-your-guide/
With the recent passing of the Farm Bill there is more opportunities for the Production and Distrubution of Hemp products such as CBD oil in the US.
Overall I am for the use of CBD oil. I do think we need to use it when it’s appropriate and not be irresponsible in our approach. I don’t believe the product should be used as a gimmick to market a coffee beverage. CBD has benefits and it should be used accordingly otherwise it cheapens it’s overall value in my opinion.
I have personally not yet used CDB oil. I have however used many similar oils to supplement my own health. I think CBD can be infused with Essential Oils to not only enhance its affects, but to also allow it to work alongside other cannabinoids for greater health benefits. For instance I’ve been using Cedarwood, Helichrysum and Clove at night to support my sleep. This combo is loaded with different cannabinoids that all support my bodies cellular structure as I dream away.
I’m passionate about this topic not only because it deals with coffee, but as a professional in this business we need to have respect for the products we use. I highly respect good coffee and I respect the use of alternative ways to support our health.
I’ve actively been working on my own health and frequent the gym. I have a respect for the weights and use them accordingly otherwise I could hurt myself or others. I think we in the industry ought to do likewise.
If you are looking for alternative ways to support your health feel free to check out my Essential Oil site. Later this month my company will be introducing products that will also be infused with CDB. As it can be a great tool when used in its proper context. http://baristadecasa.younglivingessentialoilsample.com
