Why mix CBD and Caffeine?
If adding CBD to your morning coffee seems counterproductive, that’s because it sort of is. Experts argue that the practice is somewhat pointless, as the two chemicals sort of “cancel each other out.” But for people who are trying to walk the line between productivity and hyperactivity, the two compounds combined appear to be useful.
Studies have shown that caffeine can offset some of the sedating effects of CBD. This is good news for those who want the best of both worlds.
Many people with caffeine sensitivities have found that adding CBD to their beverage helps mellow the harsher effects of the stimulant, giving them energy without giving them the jitters. Others have found it helps amplify their alertness, helping them to start their day more effectively, or gain a second burst of focus in the afternoons.
This CBD – caffeine cocktail might be helpful for those with high functioning anxiety because it could allow them to reap the benefits of a cup of Joe without causing the typical overstimulation. It can increase concentration levels and improve energy levels temporarily without nervousness or irritability, which can sometimes be brought on by higher doses of caffeine.

CBD Bulletproof Coffee
For this recipe, you can use several forms of CBD. Any tincture or oil that you usually use will work, although an isolate tincture or powdered concentrate is your best-unflavored option. You can also use CBD-infused coconut oil or ghee.
Brew yourself your usual cup of coffee, but make sure it has cooled a bit. To maintain its beneficial properties, CBD shouldn’t be heated over 350 degrees. An easy rule of thumb is to make sure that your coffee is cool enough to take a comfortable sip of and you should be good to go.
Next, you will want to add either a serving of CBD infused coconut oil or butter or use CBD tincture plus one tablespoon of coconut oil separately; healthy fats are an essential component of bulletproof coffee, with most recipes calling for butter or MCT oil.
The third and final step is to pour it all into a blender. Blend it well until it becomes frothy and light. Pour it back into your cup and drink as you normally would. This coffee won’t just leave you feeling awake; it will leave you feeling bulletproof!
