How CBD-Infused Beverages Can Enhance Your Wellness Routine

Jul 1, 2024

With the constant hustle and bustle of modern life, finding ways to prioritize your physical and mental wellness is crucial — but can be challenging. One option that has been growing in popularity over recent years is CBD-infused beverages

At our San Antonio coffee lounges, we offer CBD infusions in your favorite cafe drinks as well as a variety of other CBD products. We’re on a mission to demystify CBD and create welcoming experiences with a thoughtful approach to well-being for our community in Texas.

So, what is all this buzz about CBD beverages? How can they be incorporated into your existing healthy habits? Whether you’re a seasoned sipper or have never tried one before, we’re dishing the details on all things CBD-infused drinks and your wellness routine. 

What is CBD? 

CBD, or cannabidiol, is a naturally occurring chemical compound found in the cannabis plant. Unlike THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), CBD is non-intoxicating so it does not give you a “high” and is completely legal in the United States (as long as the THC content is less than 0.3%). 

Even so, it’s important to do your research when selecting CBD products. Be sure to only buy from brands with a third-party certification of analysis, proving their products have less than 0.3% THC and have been tested for harmful ingredients, such as heavy metals and pesticides. 

At Archies Fine Coffee, we offer a curated collection of locally manufactured CBD products that are always third-party tested. If you have questions, our baristas and budtenders are always happy to help! Stop in to have a personal, one-on-one conversation to pick the right products for your needs and preferences.

What are CBD-infused beverages? 

CBD is not just found in tinctures and topicals anymore! Infused beverages are getting tons of buzz as a beneficial way to consume CBD. These are beverages that are crafted with CBD oil extracted from the cannabis plant and come in a variety of forms and flavors

Nowadays, you can find CBD in drinks from teas and tonics to smoothies and seltzers, transforming your average beverages into tasty wellness elixirs. Since it’s so easy to add CBD to any drink, you can even infuse your coffee – whether it’s the first cup to get going in the morning or that second afternoon pick-me-up (okay, or third or fourth). 

Our customers love adding CBD to their favorite coffee drinks to help counteract that jittery feeling. Due to its more calming nature, CBD helps to balance out caffeine without completely losing its energizing effects — resulting in a more even-keeled experience.

How do CBD-infused beverages work? 

CBD drinks work by delivering cannabidiol into the body through the digestive system. Here, the CBD is metabolized in the liver and enters the bloodstream where it interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS).

The ECS plays a key role in regulating cognitive and emotional processes in the central nervous system, including mood, appetite, and sleep. CBD is believed to interact with this system by binding with ECS receptors — and since we have these receptors located throughout our bodies, CBD can affect a lot of different functions. This explains why CBD can help to treat such a wide variety of different symptoms and health conditions.

Potential health benefits of CBD-infused beverages

The science shows that CBD has many potential therapeutic benefits. This is why it has gained popularity as a supplement that can be used to improve overall well-being in a safe, natural way. Some of the most commonly known benefits of CBD include

  • Relaxation and stress relief. CBD may promote a sense of calmness and relaxation. Studies and clinical trials are currently exploring the common report that CBD can help people manage stress levels and anxiety. 
  • Sleep support. Studies suggest that CBD can help with both falling asleep and staying asleep, so CBD-infused drinks may aid in improving overall sleep quality.
  • Anti-inflammatory effects. CBD has been studied for its potential anti-inflammatory properties, which could help people dealing with chronic pain or health conditions such as arthritis.

How to incorporate CBD-infused beverages in your daily wellness routine

Incorporating CBD beverages into your existing wellness routine is incredibly easy to do! It all starts with a sip — making the choice to swap out your morning coffee for an uplifting CBD tonic, or that evening glass of wine with a relaxing CBD-infused tea. 

CBD beverages can be calming or energizing, depending on the experience you’re looking for. There’s no one-size-fits-all approach, so test what types of drinks and time of day work best for you. The great thing about CBD-infused beverages is that they can fit seamlessly into existing daily routines. Craving a morning CBD coffee or a post-workout CBD smoothie? It’s just like grabbing your usual drink. The choice of how, when, and where you consume CBD beverages ultimately boils down to lifestyle and personal preferences. 

If you’re looking for some ideas to get started, CBD-infused beverages can be used in your wellness routine to:

  • Recover after a workout
  • Get grounded before yoga or meditation
  • Have a more restful night’s sleep
  • Reduce pain and inflammation from an injury
  • Unwind after a long day
  • Get going with an energy boost
  • Feel a social buzz at gatherings 
  • Get creative for a brainstorming session or art project 
  • Enhance a hike or bike ride
  • Connect with your dog before a walk
