Well, everyone has their own morning routine. However, if you are a coffee lover, you may be part of the 62% of Americans who drink coffee daily . In general, Americans consume over 400 million cups of coffee daily. But did you know that coffee has immense health benefits besides being an excellent early morning pick-me-up?
It turns out coffee is quite nutritious. It is rich in essential nutrients like riboflavin, potassium, vitamin B5, niacin, and manganese. Moreover, coffee is the leading source of antioxidants for the average American.
It is also a great energy booster, thanks to caffeine, which helps break down fat cells to release energy . This is why you feel invigorated after a cup of coffee. As a result, your metabolism increases by up to 11%, helping you lose weight.
Therefore, it is gratifying that you can enrich your coffee and turn it into something more special—a CBD latte!
CBD—short for cannabidiol—has hit the limelight in recent years. It’s a cannabinoid derived from cannabis believed to possess numerous health benefits.
Even though CBD research is just gathering momentum, existing studies suggest this adaptogenic herbal supplement may help relieve pain and inflammation and promote reduced levels of stress and anxiety.
Moreover, if you wonder if CBD will make you “high,” no, it will not! Unlike THC, the psychoactive component of cannabis responsible for the “high,” CBD is generally non-psychoactive. Instead, it induces a wide range of dose-dependent effects.
Moreover, hemp CBD products are legal in the United States because they typically contain less than 0.3% THC. Furthermore, it is neither addictive nor prone to abuse, meaning you can enjoy the full range of CBD benefits without experiencing any adverse side effects.
Coffee is a great drink, but it does have its flaws. Too much of it can cause a host of unpleasant side effects, like headaches, faster heart rate, anxiety, insomnia, restlessness, and dizziness. Adding CBD to your drink alleviates these symptoms and gives extra benefits like a clearer focus and calm.
Here’s an easy way to make a CBD latte.
How to make CBD oil latte
Before switching to CBD coffee, there are a few things to keep in mind.
For starters, CBD’s “golden rule” is to start ‘low and slow.’ You may generally drink several cups daily, but with CBD, we recommend starting with one CBD-infused cup of coffee latte.
Although many coffee shops now sell CBD-infused coffee drinks, it can be challenging to know the exact quantity of CBD you have taken in this manner. However, if you mix the CBD oil in the latte yourself, you can get results that are more accurate.
To kick off the process of making a CBD latte, you need CBD oil and coffee. Be advised that CBD is water insoluble, so you will need some fat (margarine, butter, cream) for it to bind to.
High-fat content products are ideal, but coconut milk creamer, whole milk, or almond milk work quite well.
- Saucepan or coffee machine with a steam wand
- Milk jug
- Food thermometer
- Latte glass
- Handheld Milk Frother or whisk
- 2 cups of freshly brewed espresso coffee
- 2 cups whole milk
When making a regular latte, it is essential not to add too much milk foam to your drink. Instead, aim for a nice, thin foam layer on top of the latte.
If you use an espresso machine, fill the filter basket with the correct amount of coffee and brew it directly into the latte glass.
NOTE: Ideally, the latte should be two-thirds milk.
- Prepare the espresso directly into a latte glass.
- Fill the milk jug up to one-third (1/3) with whole milk.
- Steam the milk in the espresso machine until it begins to froth. Let it froth for 20 to 45 seconds until you get a homogenous smooth microfoam.
NB : In the absence of an espresso machine, you can heat the milk on the stovetop and froth it using the handheld milk frother. A temperature of 150°F is ideal. At this temperature, the milk does not simmer but is very hot. You can also use a whisk to froth the milk. the options are many.
CBD Infused Hojicha Latte
Hojicha is a roasted green tea from Kyoto, Japan. Since it is roasted, hojicha is naturally decaffeinated making it convenient to sip on day or night. The roasting process also removes any bitterness and gives hojicha its signature earthy aroma and reddish-brown color. Hojicha contains L-Theanine and pyrazines, which calm the body.
What is CBD Oil
Cannabidiol, also known as CBD, is a compound produced by the hemp and the cannabis plants. Unlike tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD is non-psychoactive. CBD is often taken to treat sleep and mood disorders, reduce anxiety, or as an anti-inflammatory.
CBD oil is made by extracting CBD from the hemp or the cannabis plant, and by diluting it with a carrier oil like coconut MCT oil.
