CBD Coffee | Best of 2020

When it comes to choosing your preferred method to take cannabidiol (CBD), coffee may not be the most obvious choice. In fact, some question the point behind purchasing elaborate, CBD-infused blends when you could just add a few drops of CBD oil to your regular morning cup-of-joe? However, what truly CBD coffee apart is its flavor.

 

While adding CBD oil to coffee does can be effective, it can give the drink an unwanted plant-like flavor. In contrast, companies have invested heavily in crafting numerous flavorful blends of CBD coffee that are sure to leave your taste buds very happy.

 

Needless to say, taste isn’t the only reason why you would start drinking CBD coffee. The combination of CBD and caffeine has a lot of potential in terms of health benefits. The caffeine will get you focused and energized while the CBD can simultaneously ease your nerves and leave you relaxed.

 

In this article, we are going to take a deeper look into how CBD coffee can help you, as well as provide insight into some of the best CBD coffee products currently on the market.

NakedCBD Pros:

  • Uses a nano full-spectrum CBD extract
  • Comes in both ground coffee and single-serving K-cups

 

NakedCBD Cons:

  • Low dosage of CBD per serving (10mg)

 

NakedCBD’s Nano CBD Coffee provides you with a rather unique experience when it comes to taking CBD in the morning. Using cutting-edge, nano-extraction technology, each serving of NakedCBD’s coffee provides you with more bioavailability compared to competitors.

 

Each serving of NakedCBD coffee contains a rather small CBD dose of only 10mg. For more experienced CBD users, 10mg is most likely not enough to really get your day started. On the other hand, if you are new to CBD and are just giving it a try, 10mg is the perfect starting amount.

 

Furthermore, NakedCBD provides you a more convenient sample option through their CBD coffee K-cups. These can be purchased separately for ($5.99) or in packs (from 3 to 12 pods). This additional option can be great for those who may be still exploring CBD and are looking for a hassle-free way to try it.

 

For these reasons, NakedCBD offers one of the best CBD coffees currently out there.

Buddha Beans Coffee CO. Pros:

  • Free shipping on orders of $35 or more
  • Standard coffee offered in 100% compostable K-Cup pods
  • Organic Mexico, Colombia, and Ethiopia coffees can be purchased in a variety pack

 

Buddha Beans Coffee CO. Cons:

  • Website doesn’t offer information on potency per serving

 

The most versatile company on our list has to go to Buddha Beans Coffee CO. for their four unique flavors of CBD coffee - Burundi, Colombia, Ethiopia, and Mexico. The four flavors are developed using a distinct set of all-natural ingredients - each of which can help with a variety of different ailments.

 

One aspect of Buddha Beans Coffee CO. that makes them stand out is that they’re the only CBD brand on this list which features a cannabigerol (CBG) coffee blend. Coming in the Colombia flavor, CBG is said to have the potential for fighting ailments including inflammation, pain, nausea, and cancer cell growth.

 

While Buddha Beans Coffee CO. offer their CBD coffee at an average price, you can also opt for a subscription service in order to save about 25% with each purchase. This is great for those who think they are going to use CBD daily in order to combat morning stressors.

 

3.) Kickback

Kickback Cali Daze Hemp-Infused Ground Coffee

Rating 4.5/ 5

Extract Type: Nano broad-spectrum

Total CBD Range: 91mg - 360mg

Potency Range: 5mg - 7mg per serving

Price Range: $22.00 - $69.00

Value ($/mg): $0.19 - $0.24 per mg

THC Content: 0.0%

Lab Report: See Here

Flavor Variations: 2

Potency Variations1

 

Kickback Pros:

  • Comes in 2 different roasts
  • Uses two all-natural ingredients - single-origin shade-grown coffee and nano hemp extract
  • Free shipping on all U.S. orders over $35.00

 

Kickback Cons:

  • Very low CBD dosages (5mg to 7mg)

 

While Kickback is famous for their CBD-infused lemonades, their hemp-infused ground coffee has also recently made a name for itself. Coming in two unique blends - O.G. Cali Daze and O.G. Cali Rise - this coffee will help you ease into your mornings on those busy days.

 

Like NakedCBD, Kickback uses a nano CBD extract in order to achieve higher bioavailability with each serving. Kickback claim that their method can make a 7mg CBD serving feel like a 35mg. And while these claims will vary depending on the user, there have been reports that suggest that nano CBD extract is more effective and will provide you with more of CBD’s effects.

 

This hemp-infused ground coffee is developed using a broad-spectrum CBD extract. This means that the CBD contains all the various beneficial cannabinoids found in hemp except for THC. This is preferred by some users as it allows them to consume CBD without getting high, as well as being less likely to result in a positive drug test result.

 

For CBD users who like to try it in different forms, it’s worth noting that Kickback offers a variety of bundles that incorporate their CBD coffee alongside other CBD beverages, such as CBD tea and CBD lemonades. These bundles can help you save on your purchase while also providing you with a variety of different CBD products to try.

 

4.) Pinnacle Hemp

Pinnacle Hemp Full-Spectrum CBD Ground Coffee

Rating 4/ 5

Extract Type: Full-spectrum

Total CBD Range: 160mg

Potency Range: 10mg per serving

Price Range: $29.99

Pinnacle Hemp Pros:

  • Offered in a medium-roast of Columbian Arabica pre-ground coffee beans
  • Very positive customer reviews

 

Pinnacle Hemp Cons:

  • Website doesn’t offer information about ingredients used in this blend

 

Pinnacle Hemp is a CBD company that offers one of the most versatile selections of CBD products, from CBD honey sticks to CBD e-juices. A fairly popular product within this selection is their full-spectrum CBD-infused coffee.

 

Their coffee is available in a single size; the 8 oz bag comes with 160mg of hemp extract - offering 10mg of CBD per dosage. While this dosage can be on the lower end for more experienced CBD users, it may be an ideal amount for newcomers.

 

According to customer reviews, Pinnacle Hemp has helped with morning arthritis pain and keeping a higher level of focus throughout a workday. The only real downside to Pinnacle Hemp’s CBD coffee is the fact that it only comes in one variety and a rather small size.

 

5.) Sträva

Sträva CBD Coffee 10mg Medium Roast

Rating 4/ 5

Extract Type: Broad-spectrum

Total CBD Range: 100mg - 500mg

Potency Range: 4mg - 20mg per serving

Price Range: $21.95 - $54.95

Value ($/mg): $0.10 - $0.21 per mg

THC Content: 0.0%

Lab Report: See Here

Flavor Variations: 2

Potency Variations3

 

Sträva Pros:

  • Only contains two all-natural ingredients - 100% Arabica coffee and organically-grown broad-spectrum hemp extract
  • Products are available in whole bean coffee, ground coffee, and K-Cups/Nespresso pods)

 

Sträva Cons:

  • Not all coffee blends are available in Nespresso pods

 

Sträva is another CBD brand that focuses solely on CBD-infused coffee. However, unlike Flower Power Coffee CO., Sträva offers their variety in 3 different strengths - 4mg, 10mg, and 20mg per serving. Each strength can be purchased in a medium or dark roast and you have the option to also choose from whole bean coffee, ground coffee, and K-Cups.

 

We appreciate this variety because it provides customers more options to consider when deciding how they like their CBD coffee. Additionally, all these options are produced using broad-spectrum hemp extract - so, you don’t have to worry about a high or failing a drug test.

 

In addition to these options, Sträva also offers their coffee in a Nespresso pod. While they only have one option for this (10mg serving sizes in a medium roast blend), it is still a smart addition by Sträva to their product line.

 

Sträva’s coffee varieties may not be the cheapest on our list. However, if you plan on purchasing CBD coffee regularly, they offer a subscription service that allows you to save 20% with each purchase.

 

6.) Green Roads

Green Roads Hemp Flower Coffee Founders Blend

Rating 3.5/ 5

Extract Type: Full-spectrum

Total CBD Range: Varies by batch

Potency Range: Around 9.67mg - 22mg per serving

Price Range: $14.99 - $44.99

Value ($/mg): Varies by batch

THC Content: 0.0%

Lab Report: See Here

Flavor Variations: 3

Potency Variations1

 

Green Roads Pros:

  • Comes in 3 different flavors for a unique set of tastes
  • Uses only 4 different ingredients
  • Comes in either a 2.5 oz or 12 oz bag

 

Green Roads Cons:

  • Little information on how much CBD is in each serving
  • Made with some artificial flavors

 

Next on our list is Green Roads’ Hemp Flower Coffee. As one of the most prominent names within the CBD industry, Green Roads has already developed various high-quality CBD products that have helped many users with day-to-day ailments. Just recently, they announced a line of coffee which is sure to provide you with that morning focus and energy.

 

Green Roads currently offers three unique blends of coffee - all of which comes as a medium roast. The flavors are their Founder’s Blend, Hazelnut, and French Vanilla. While the variety in flavors sets Green Roads apart from some of their competitors, their use of Columbian coffee with American hemp is what really makes this product worth looking into. Not to mention, in terms of quality, Green Roads offers one of the best CBD coffees available.

 

The only downside we see to Green Roads’ Hemp Flower Coffee is the fact that the CBD range isn’t indicated on any of their products. According to their recent lab tests, each 2.5 oz bag comes with around 9.67mg per serving whereas their 12 oz offers about 22mg per serving. However, this lack of information may leave some weary as to how much CBD they are buying and consuming - especially considering CBD-infused coffee is meant to be taken right at the start of a potentially busy day.

 

7.) Diamond CBD

Diamond CBD Chill CBD Coffee 4 pack

Rating 3.5/ 5

Extract Type: CBD Isolate

Total CBD Range: 100mg

Potency Range: 25mg per serving

Price Range: $19.99

Value ($/mg): $0.19 per mg

THC Content: 0.0%

Lab Report: See Here

Flavor Variations: 1

Potency Variations1

 

Diamond CBD Pros:

  • Uses rich artisanal coffee and contains 25mg of CBD per serving
  • All hemp and products are made in the U.S.A.
  • Top-of-the-line customer service

 

Diamond CBD Cons:

  • Can only be purchased as coffee pods
  • Product is made in a facility that contains nuts, eggs, soy, dairy, wheat, and gluten

 

Diamond CBD’s Chill CBD Coffee may not be the winner of this list, but it does provide the fundamentals you would typically seek in a CBD coffee. A delicious artisanal blend mixed with a fair serving amount of CBD, this coffee clocks in at 25mg. At such high CBD dose, each cup of Diamond CBD’s Chill CBD Coffee is bound to get you awake, alert, and active with little-to-none jittery and anxious caffeine side effects.

 

The main downside to Diamond CBD’s coffee is the fact that it only comes in coffee pods (also known as K-cups). This means that you will need a specialized machine (like a Keurig) in order to use this product. If you only have a standard coffee dripper, this product will not work for you.

 

It is important to note to mention that this CBD coffee is made with CBD isolate. This means that the hemp extract used in this product is solely CBD and no other cannabinoid. While some may prefer their whole-plant blends, CBD isolate is ideal for those who would prefer not to take the risk of THC’s psychoactivity or having it show up on a drug test.

 

8.) Flower Power Coffee CO.

Flower Power Coffee Co. New Your Signature House Blend

Rating 3.5/ 5

Extract Type: CBD Isolate

Total CBD Range: 60mg

Potency Range: 5mg per serving

Price Range: $14.99 - $15.99

Value ($/mg): $0.25 - $0.26 per mg

THC Content: 0.0%

Lab Report: Not on website

Flavor Variations: 2

Potency Variations1

 

Flower Power Coffee CO. Pros:

  • Uses a water-soluble CBD extract
  • Two unique blends from a company that solely develops CBD coffee
  • Free shipping on U.S. orders of $50 or more.

 

Flower Power Coffee CO. Cons:

  • Low CBD dosage (5mg per serving)
  • No certificate of analysis available on website

 

Flower Power Coffee CO.’s CBD Hemp Coffee made our list for a specific reason; the people behind these blends know what they are doing. With CBD coffee being the only product sold on their entire website – allowing them to master the craft, especially in comparison to competitors who have a more broad product line with offerings like tinctures, edibles, and other CBD products.

 

Flower Power Coffee CO. is a coffee brand that offers two distinct CBD-infused coffee blends - a New York House Blend Signature and a Costa Rican blend. Each of these can be purchased in 2 oz containers and packs a delicious punch.

 

An interesting aspect of Flower Power Coffee CO.’s CBD coffee is that it uses a water-soluble hemp extraction method. Since CBD is not normal water-soluble, integrating it effectively into beverages has proven difficult before. However, with a water-soluble extract, you’re much more likely to experience the full effects of your CBD dose.

 

Due to this extract type, one could overlook the fact that these products contain a low dosage of CBD (only 5mg per serving). And while it remains ideal to take a small dosage in the morning, there’s a chance that the actual dosage in your drink may even be lower than advertised.

 

9.) Willie's Remedy

Willie's Remedy Dark Blend Whole Bean Coffee

Rating 3.5/ 5

Extract Type: Full-spectrum

Total CBD Range: 250mg

Potency Range: About 15mg per serving

Price Range: $22.50

Value ($/mg): $0.09 per mg

THC Content: <0.3%

Lab Report: See Here

Flavor Variations: 3

Potency Variations1

 

Willie’s Remedy Pros:

  • Comes in three different roasts - light roast, dark roast, and decaf
  • All hemp is certified organic and grown in Colorado
  • Money-back guarantee

 

Willie’s Remedy Cons:

  • Certificate of Analysis only available with batch I.D. number (available upon purchase)

 

Willie’s Remedy’s CBD-infused coffee stands out for its variety of roasts. Their range includes a light roast option (more caffeine), a dark roast (less caffeine), as well as the option of a decaffeinated roast. Each roast can be purchased in an 8 oz bag, and the coffee is available as grounded coffee beans or whole bean coffee.

 

One aspect of Willie’s Remedy’s coffee that we found admirable was their CBD dosage; each serving contains 15mg of CBD. While dosage preferences will vary from person to person, many have self-reported that 15mg is sufficient for the user to feel CBD’s positive effects, but not overwhelming enough to make you feel fatigued. Caffeine combined with such a CBD dose will get your days off to a great, relaxed start when taken in the morning.

 

Willi’s Remedy’s coffee also stands out as the most affordable on our list (in terms of a per-milligram [mg] basis). So, if you plan on making CBD coffee a part of your everyday routine and are looking to do so on a limited budget, we suggest giving this coffee a try!

 

10.) Happy Grounds Coffee

Rating 3.5/ 5

Extract Type: Full-spectrum

Total CBD Range: 100mg - 300mg

Potency Range: 20mg per serving

Price Range: $8.00 - $40.00

Value ($/mg): About $0.20 per mg

THC Content: <0.3%

Lab Report: On individual product pages

Flavor Variations: 2

Potency Variations1

 

Happy Grounds Coffee Pros:

  • Can be purchased in whole coffee beans or coffee grounds
  • Offers coffee and tea varieties outside of CBD-infused coffee and tea

 

Happy Grounds Coffee Cons:

  • Little information on website about product details (including ingredients and potency per serving)

 

Happy Grounds Coffee is not a CBD brand, but rather a coffee and tea brand that has recently incorporated CBD into some of their most popular blends. For this reason, it’s safe to say they have a lot of knowledge about what goes into crafting a delicious and effective cup of joe.

 

Happy Grounds Coffee’s CBD-infused coffee also makes a strong case for itself as the highest quality product on this list in terms of the coffee beans themselves. Each blend (from dark roast to decaf) is produced using their standard coffee. From there, third-party tested CBD is added to give you an extra kick in your morning routine.

 

Being as Happy Grounds Coffee isn’t a CBD brand, the only downside we could see to their products is they don’t provide as much information concerning ingredients and potency as other brands do. So while the coffee is delicious, it isn’t entirely clear just how potent the CBD really is from one cup to another.

 

What is CBD Coffee?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of over 100 cannabinoids found within the cannabis plant.

 

CBD coffee is exactly what it sounds like – a coffee bean beverage infused with CBD. What makes CBD coffee special is that it carries two separate effects thanks to the caffeine and the CBD, and can consistently deliver their effects with every cup.

 

In many regards, these are two opposing forces working together. Caffeine tends to make you more alert whereas CBD will most typically relax you. This is one of the reasons CBD coffee has garnered so much appeal. Many find that these two seemingly opposite chemicals work quite well together and carry a wide range of benefits when taken at the same time.

 

Not to mention, CBD coffee allows for a unique set of brews that can't be found in other CBD products, like gummies. For example, you can get yourself a cold brew or Colombian coffee - the options being limited only by the coffee brand's imagination.

 

How To Use CBD Coffee?

Most of the products listed are CBD-infused grounded coffee. So in order to prepare the coffee, you would brew a cup the same way you would any other coffee product.

 

If you are using a standard coffee dripper, simply add a few tablespoons of CBD coffee to the filter, add water, and wait for the machine to work its magic.

 

Some of the products mentioned on our list are CBD coffee pods, like the Nespresso original pods or the Keurig K-Cups. These pods require that you have a machine that takes these pods, and the CBD coffee pods work the same as your traditional coffee pods.

 

What Are the Health Benefits of CBD Coffee?

While caffeine and CBD provide different effects on the brain and body, they have one thing in common - they’re both antioxidants. Taking a combination of the two can provide you with a heightened dose of well-being. This is because antioxidants can protect the body from a number of health conditions, including cancer and Alzheimer’s.

 

However, it’s really the separate effects of these supplements working together that make CBD coffee so special.

 

When you take CBD, it has an effect on your endocannabinoid system (ECS). This system is a vast network of neurotransmitters that plays a role in day-to-day functions, such as regulating our levels of stress, anxiety, mood, and even digestion. When we take CBD, it is reported to work to balance our ECS back to an ideal state, also referred to as homeostasis.

 

For example, if you are feeling elevated anxiety, CBD is said to have the potential to ease the ECS and, in turn, help reduce the anxiety effects you’re feeling. There have also been numerous studies exploring the many possibilities that come from using CBD as a health supplement.

 

This relaxing function of the phytocannabinoid can have even further potential when combined with caffeine. As a stimulant, caffeine will energize you and help you better focus. However, such stimulation can come with unwanted side effects, such as the same anxiety that some people take CBD to help alleviate.

 

While more research is necessary to make any claims, many people have self-reported that CBD coffee has given them the concentration they need without the extra stress and nervousness caffeine sometimes brings.

 

How Does CBD Coffee Affect Anxiety?

If you’ve found coffee to induce anxiety, then you’re not alone. In fact, any caffeine amount that surpasses 200mg has been found to increase the chance of anxiety and panic attacks in the general population. However, this does not diminish the fact that caffeine is a powerful supplement that can help boost alertness and overall energy.

 

With that in mind, it’s in your best interest to find a caffeine supplement that can also keep you calm, focused, and collected.

 

This is what can make CBD coffee an effective product for you. As a stimulant, coffee may push users that are vulnerable to anxiety towards a “fight or flight” state. In order to counteract this feeling - while maintaining steady alertness - a dose of anxiety relief can prove very useful.

 

While still not approved by the FDA, many have self-reported that CBD can act as a valuable way to relieve anxiety and the symptoms often attached to it. While these reports aren’t definitive, they do lend credibility to the theory that combining CBD with caffeine, may help us stay awake and concentrated without the anxiety that caffeine can cause.

 

Criteria for Purchasing CBD Coffee

Before purchasing CBD online, it’s important to make sure the company you’re purchasing from follows certain guidelines. In the absence of industry-wide standards for judging CBD coffee, we want to share with you what our criteria was for putting together the list of best CBD coffees;

 

  • Certificate of Analysis - Before anything, make sure the company you purchase from holds a certificate of analysis. These are third-party lab test reports that will analyze the CBD, including its potency, its cannabinoid and terpene count, and whether or not it contains any contaminants, such as pesticides.
     
  • Extract Type - Most commonly, there are three different extract types of CBD. These include full-spectrum (makes use of all of hemp’s cannabinoids), broad-spectrum (makes use of all of hemp’s cannabinoids with the exception of THC), and CBD isolate (solely cannabidiol and no other cannabinoid). While all CBD products will use one of these extractions, other techniques are emerging into the market, an example that is featured in our list is nano-extraction.
     
  • Hemp Source - CBD is extracted from the hemp plant, and the best products are made using only the best hemp. Before purchasing a product, make sure the company sources their hemp from reputable and organic farms.
     
  • Ingredients - CBD coffee is usually made with two different ingredients - hemp extract and coffee beans. It’s important to read about the ingredients before purchasing online in order to determine whether or not they’re made using all-natural ingredients. While compiling our list, we found the products  ran across a few competitors who used artificial additives and flavors.
     
  • Potency - All CBD products measure and report their potency in milligrams (mg). The higher the milligram count, the stronger the product. When it comes to CBD coffee, it can be a bit difficult to measure potency as everyone has a preference in terms of “how strong” they like their coffee. If you purchase ground coffee beans or whole coffee beans, keep in mind that the more you use to make a cup of beverage, the larger the dose of CBD will be.
     
  • Pricing - Compared to CBD oils (tinctures) and other CBD products, CBD coffee is relatively expensive. If you plan on using it regularly, it helps to find a reputable CBD brand that provides their products at a low cost - always check to see if they offer a subscription service to help you save on each order. While pricing shouldn’t be a deciding-factor, there is still a certain correlation between price point and quality of product.

 

Potential CBD Coffee Side Effects

Most people who take CBD don’t experience any side effects. This is one of the reasons many people are trying CBD, particularly since prescription medication tends to come with a large list of potential side effects. With that said, CBD isn’t perfect and completely side-effect-free.

 

The following are some of the side effects you may experience after taking CBD:

 

  • Changes in appetite
  • Changes in mood
  • Diarrhea
  • Dizziness
  • Dry mouth
  • Fatigue
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting

 

If you start to feel side effects, your best course of action is to either stop taking CBD altogether or to lower your dosage.

 

Keep in mind, if you’re currently on a prescription medication, it’s important to consult your doctor before taking CBD. While it’s very rare, some medications have been found to negatively interact with CBD.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

How Much CBD Oil Do I Add to Coffee?

If you want to add CBD oil to your morning cup of coffee, it’s best to add the dosage amount you’d normally take. For most people, this is the serving suggestion mentioned on the label of the CBD oil.

 

How Does CBD Oil React With Coffee?

Since CBD oil isn’t water-soluble, it oil to coffee will only provide you with a fraction of the benefits you would receive from taking CBD oil normally. However, if you add an average dose of CBD oil to your coffee, you can expect to feel something.

 

Will CBD Coffee Get Me High?

CBD coffee is unlikely to get you high as CBD is non-psychoactive. However, it is possible for some CBD products to contain traces of THC, and that would be dependent on the type of extract used. In the 2018 Farm Bill, all legal CBD products must contain 0.3% THC or less. This is such a minuscule amount, that it is unlikely to get anybody high even when present in their CBD product.
