  1. Hey, man thanks for sharing this article. When I used to smoke cannabis in my younger days, I enjoyed it with a cup of coffee the most. There’s something about the combination of the two. However, I have never tried CBD and coffee, which I might after reading this article. I work a lot on my laptop from home and I drink coffee while working. I believe the combo will help me to be more productive and relax while working. Thanks for sharing and keep up the good work!

  2. Hi Arnaud!
    That is great information. I had no idea about drinking coffee with cannabis. But actually, if I think about the mixture, it makes sense. I am a nurse, and we give older adults very often coffee in the evening, and coffee does relax the elderly and helps them fall asleep. So I can imagine if you put CBD oil in the coffee, that they will have no pain and sleep even better. Coffee makes me feel more alert, which is why I need to drink it in the morning.
    I have used CBD and THC to fall asleep, but both didn’t work for me. I don’t know why. Do you have any idea why it didn’t work for me?
    The idea of putting some drops of oil into my coffee makes me curious about the effect of the mixture. I will let you know! 🙂

  3. Hi!

    The effects of CBD and THC may vary on each individuals depending on their metabolism.. CBD will sooth you and make you feel more relax, but not really to the point of making you fall asleep, unless you take it when you are very tired.

    Thank you for your interest 🙂


  4. Hi Arnaud,

    Thanks for not just addressing the question of whether coffee can be drank with cbd oil but also unpacking the mystery surrounding CBD oil for the casual reader like me who is not particularly familiar with the oil.

    Is the drink combo now for sale in coffee outlets and how much would it typical cost if you ask for CBD oil to be added to your coffee?


    1. Hi Femi,

      Actually there are not many coffee shops offering this combo , though its already popular its only now that they are becoming present in states where Cannabis is legal. A bottle of 10 ml of CBD oil typically costs around 15$. I think with the evolution of the industry we will surely be able to order the CBD coffee in Starbucks very soon.


  5. Hello Arnaud,

    I love to drink coffee, a heavy drinker, I suppose, but I never thought that CBD oil is a good combination.
    I heard lately about the health benefits of CBD oil but never tried.

    Thank you for this post; this could be an eye-opener for me to try.


  6. Hi Arnaud,
    how interesting text, I hear for the first time about this, that cannabis drops can be mixed with coffee! Sounds too good. First, I thought cannabis was illegal except for certain medical needs and now I have learned that it will be widely available in combination with coffee. I am surprised.
    I can imagine what effect it will have on the body, what influx of energy this combination will give.
    I can’t imagine a day without coffee, especially at work, but after adding CBD to coffee, I will be the best worker! I really can’t wait to try it, I’m sure it will be in great demand. I only have one dilemma. You said it is not addictive but is it so if consumed every day?
    Thank you and keep writing such interesting texts.
    Greetings, Danijela

    1. Hello Danijela!

      In fact when you consume CBD coffee you are taking only part of cannabis elements i.e the Cannabidiol which only have relaxing effects. There is no THC which is a psychoactive elements and provide the high effects that can be addictive.

      Thanks for your interest!


  7. I must admit, I need my coffee fix in the morning! But this is an entirely new concept I never tried before. Cannabis is legalized here in Canada as well and we have all sorts of speciality shops and products popping up.

    Thanks for the insight into something new!

    1. Hi! Yes the concept of Coffee with CBD is becoming very popular, I guess the trend is fast growing in Canada where we are having a lot of derivated products for legalized cannabis.

      Thanks you for your interest!


  8. I first had this at a coffee shop in California. Although I have consumed cbd oil by the dropperful, as well as trying gummies, smoking it, buying the teas, and using topical lotions, I had never thought of adding the oil to coffee (or presumably, tea). I loved having it in coffee in Cali, so as soon as I got home I ordered some oil and started adding it to my coffee. Delicous and much more effective, in my experience, than the other ways of consuming it. This has become a great new habit!
