Ok, so it doesn’t have to be green, but this St. Patrick’s Day green cold foam CBD coffee recipe is a great way to get festive this spring. It doesn’t have to be expensive. You can make this drink at home with a few ingredients you may already have and a couple you may have to pick up at the store.
CBD and Coffee
Over the last several years, CBD has started to pop up in many progressive coffee shops as a add-in ingredient. Most of the time, this additive is going to be isolate rather than full-spectrum. That means that even though it is CBD, you are missing out on all the other cannabinoids that help promote the benefits you looking for. This recipe includes ingredients that will help your Receptra full-spectrum CBD emulsify (mix) with your coffee and become available for the body to use.
Remember, everything is good in moderation. You shouldn’t live on coffee (though many of us do, from time to time). But in normal amounts coffee does contain antioxidants, vitamin B2, magnesium, and of course, caffeine. All of these things have health benefits to help you get through the day.
Receptra Naturals Serious Wellness CBD 50
CBD 50 is a potent minimal-ingredient full spectrum option for both those with advanced needs or new to Receptra products. One dropper equals 50mg of CBD, making it easily adjustable to fit your desired serving. CBD interacts with the body’s natural endocannabinoid system to restore and maintain balance. Irish Cream Creamer
If you are celebrating St. Patrick’s Day, it’s a no-brainer that you should be starting your morning with Irish cream. You can make this at home or purchase it in the store. If you are planning on going to the office, you may want to skip the whisky.
Derived from coconut oil, MCT oil provides an additional source of healthy energy. MCT oil has been linked to athletic performance, weight loss, brain health, and more. When mixed with CBD, it also serves as a carrier oil to promote bioavailability.
Collagen is an important protein building block in the body. As the body ages, natural collagen production declines. Reduced collagen can lead to a variety of signs of aging including dull, lackluster skin, and less joint flexibility.
Chocolate has a number of health benefits. Cocoa powder (like the kind you use for baking), also has benefits. If you are not a chocolate person, go ahead and skip this part. Cocoa powder is flavorful, low in calories, and high in iron.
