What’s new with CBD and coffee?

There’s nothing quite so American as a cup of coffee in the morning. It’s what keeps the country buzzing along, but too often bring jittery negative side affects that leave some with a bitter taste in their mouth.


Luckily, a newly available hemp derivative may be a near-perfect pairing with one of the nation’s favorite beverages. CBD is a non-inebriating relative of the active ingredient in marijuana, and it’s making headlines all over the country for its wellness benefits.

People love using CBD for their chronic pain, anxiety, inflammation and even types of epilepsy. Only one prescription CBD drug has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, but plenty of other offerings that use the compound are available on the supplement market.


Mainstream CBD products are usually found in tinctures, concentrated oil solutions that can be applied under the tongue. Still, novelty CBD products have made their way into bath bombs, athletic pants and a wide range of other offerings.


One of these is CBD-infused coffee grounds and other coffee products.


Recently, a company called Cannabis Global, Inc. filed a patent for their own version of a coffee product that incorporates CBD into the grounds.

Theirs is far from the only coffee CBD product — country music star Willie Nelson announced in early 2019 that he was launching his own proprietary brand of CBD coffee grounds, titled Willie’s Remedy — but there may be some distinctive features to the Cannabis Global effort.


“While we are very excited to have our Hemp You Can Feel Coffee products debut on Amazon,” Cannabis Global CEO Arman Tabatabaei said in a statement, “I cannot overemphasize the significance of having the new dosing system applied to high-speed production lines. It changes the equation for infusion of hemp extracts, vitamins, and nutraceuticals into single-serving coffee pods.”


Melissa Malamut wrote in Healthline that she had experimented with CBD coffee and other cannabis products for five straight days in order to see their effects on her routine. [3]

Here’s what she found:


“Overall, I enjoyed the coffee and can see myself giving it out as a novelty gift. But it’s not something I’d drink every day, and I’m not convinced I prefer it to regular coffee,” Malamut wrote. “I think when it comes to CBD, it may take a few tries to find the proper dosage that works for you. Talking to your doctor could help.”[3]
