CBD coffee is becoming more and more popular in Australia. There’s a huge range of benefits associated with CBD (AKA “cannabidiol“), not to mention its popularity as an alternative treatment for anxiety and chronic pain.

But how do you make your own CBD coffee and what are the benefits?

Keep reading to find out.

The popularity of CBD coffee

Nearly 19 million Australians drink at least one cup of coffee a day, and 23% prefer to start their day with an energising espresso or cappuccino.

And CBD is becoming a bit of an Australian obsession too. The CBD market in Australia has the potential to be worth over $200m per annum over the coming years.

Many people find that a combination of CBD’s calming effects plus the invigorating effect of caffeine results in a focused but chilled mood – perfect for work, hobbies and leisure.

So it makes sense that adding a few drops to your coffee is becoming a popular and convenient way to take a daily dose of CBD.

How do you make CBD coffee?

So you’re ready to delve into the world of CBD coffee and reap all its benefits. Here’s a quick rundown on how it works:

  1. Brew some regular, strong-brewed coffee (black or with milk).
  2. Wait at least five minutes for it to cool. This is important as boiling coffee will decrease the effectiveness of your CBD.
  3. Stir in your desired amount of cannabidiol oil – start small and build up gradually over time as needed for the best results!
  4. Enjoy!

Pro tip: Adding cannabis terpenes to your CBD coffee can add the taste of your favourite strain while also promoting the entourage effect. We found a ton of strain varieties including Pineapple Express, Northern Lights, and Amnesia Haze at

What is the best dosage when making CBD coffee?

It’s important to remember that everyone is different, and it might take a little trial and error before you find the right dosage for you.

Start with one dropper of CBD oil per cup at first. Then increase by one dropper every day until you feel the desired effect.

The benefits of CBD coffee

Brewing coffee with CBD oil will give you the same benefits as drinking a cup of regular coffee, minus the jitters. There are also other great reasons to choose this alternative caffeine:

CBD is an anti-inflammatory

Drinking tea or coffee regularly can cause inflammation in your stomach and intestines; however, research shows that CBD has soothing qualities which reduce inflammation instead. It’s not hard to see why people love it!

Less anxiety

Research suggests that those who drink three cups of caffeinated drinks per day have increased levels of anxiety than those who avoid them entirely – but luckily for us, adding some CBD into your mornings will help counteract these effects! You’ll feel less anxious about everyday tasks like going on public transport, or even just the daily commute.

Reduced pain

CBD is a natural anti-inflammatory substance and also has analgesic properties which means that it can be used to treat joint pain, arthritis as well as other conditions like fibromyalgia. It’s not surprising given its popularity among people with chronic pain!
