If you’re thinking about elevating your daily cup of joe, you might want to look into CBD oil. It’s a way to enhance your coffee and it might just relax you in the process.
So, what exactly is CBD oil? Cannabidiol is extracted from marijuana plants, but no, it won’t get you high. FYI: THC is the chemical in cannabis that gets you blazed and there’s less than 0.3% of it in CBD oil. Once the CBD is extracted, it’s blended with another oil. Benefits of CBD oil can include anxiety and stress relief, anti-seizure treatment, pain relief, and more. Also, CBD is legal right now in New York, so you can find small bottles of the stuff in varying strengths at local boutiques, wellness spots and of course, vape shops.
If you want to reap the benefits of CBD oil without buying a whole bottle, there’s quite a few local spots in Greenpoint that offer CBD-infused coffee and lattes. Check out the list below and some of our taste test thoughts and reactions.
