Does CBD Oil Give You Energy?

By Meredith Summers   |   July 02, 2018

Caffine or CBD?

Caffeine plays a huge role in many people’s daily routine to give them the energy they need to start their morning or get through the day. But there may be a safer, more effective way to boost your energy than caffeine. 

Cannabidiol, also known as CBD, is a naturally occurring compound extracted from the hemp plant. CBD is a cannabinoid, which interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system to help regulate and manage a variety of processes throughout the body. One of the processes that the body’s endocannabinoid system regulates is the body’s sleep/wake cycle. So, CBD oil may help some people boost their energy levels. 

CBD oil affects people differently, so some people may experience a burst of energy while others may experience a relaxing effect. Also, different serving sizes of CBD may affect people differently, for example, a larger serving of CBD oil may cause a relaxing effect while a smaller serving may increase energy levels. For those who are looking for an alternative way to increase their energy levels, CBD is worth a try, considering the gentler effects it has compared to caffeine. 

You may be able to take CBD oil to get a more subtle energy boost at the start of your day or when you feel your energy starting to wane. This way you can skip the sudden, high energy levels followed by the inevitable crash that lurks around the corner from each cup of coffee. We’ll discuss why CBD could be an alternative to caffeine or even as an addition to your caffeine routine. 


How does CBD increase energy levels? 

The human body contains an endocannabinoid system that helps regulate a range of body functions, like the nervous system, brain function, appetite, and more. The body produces natural cannabinoids that the endocannabinoid system uses, circulates, and interacts with to regulate this system. Sometimes the body needs a boost of cannabinoids to assist the natural cannabinoids in regulating the endocannabinoid system. When CBD is introduced into the system, it provides the body with an extra boost to help regulate the endocannabinoid system, which leads to an increase in energy levels in the body. 


What are the negatives to caffeine?  

Caffeine may be a staple to some people’s daily routine, but caffeine can have negative side effects. Consistent consumption of large amounts of caffeine can lead to blood pressure issues in the long run. Some people may experience caffeine jitters, anxious feelings, headaches, and stomach aches if they consume too much caffeine. Once caffeine wears off, it may cause fatigue and drowsiness. If caffeine is consumed later in the day, some people might have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep. Caffeine seems like a great way to increase alertness right away, but the negative effects may follow soon after or later down the road. 


How does CBD interact with caffeine? 

There are many CBD oil products that can be taken with caffeinated drinks, there are some CBD products that even contain caffeine. This is because when caffeine and CBD are taken together, you may experience less of the negative side effects of caffeine. When caffeine and CBD are taken together, you might not get the caffeine jitters because CBD can help relax your body and nerves. CBD can also help eliminate the anxious feelings and nausea some might experience from caffeine. CBD helps mellow out the effects of caffeine while increasing alertness without the negative effects. 


Why CBD over caffeine?  

CBD oil is known to give some people a boost of energy. CBD works with your body’s endocannabinoid system to make you feel better, more upbeat, and more like yourself. When you start to feel your energy fade, you may be able to turn it around with CBD oil. CBD may help give you the energy you need to get more done, without the negative effects of that afternoon caffeinated drink.

Best of all, if you start to replace your afternoon caffeine habit with CBD, you are less likely to experience caffeine-related sleeplessness. When bedtime approaches, you might be shocked at just how easy it is to fall asleep and stay asleep when taking CBD instead of caffeine. So, when your energy starts to fade at the end of a workday, consider taking CBD oil instead of a cup of coffee or an energy drink.
