If there’s a warm beverage loved by Americans (and lots of other people all over the world), it’s coffee. A recent report projected global coffee markets to reach $32.3 billion in value by the end of 2022, with current consumer demand for specialty coffees continuing to increase.
But not many people realize that compounds in coffee affect the body’s endocannabinoid system, which is the same thing that cannabinoids do – cannabinoids like CBD, as well as other plant compounds derived from hemp and cannabis.
So, it’s perhaps no surprise that CBD (aka cannabidiol) and coffee could make a winning combination. Caffeine lovers can get their buzz on, and at the same time, take the edge off with the balancing effects of CBD.
In September, American music legend and cannabis entrepreneur Willie Nelson will launch his new signature branded Willie’s Remedy CBD Coffee, available in whole bean and ground. The coffee blend will add to Nelson’s growing cannabis product lines, which include flower and concentrates under the Willie’s Reserve label.
There are several CBD coffee brands to choose from on this list, and because hemp-derived CBD is not prohibited for sale, most of these blends are available online:
