A coffee shop in Swansea, Wales, United Kingdom is selling coffee with shots of CBD oil, and their customers are loving it!
The Bogarts CBD Coffee House is just one of the number of businesses selling the legal product.
The Bogarts CBD Coffee House is just like any other ordinary coffee shop but with a twist. They add shots of CBD oil to their best-sellers like the hot chocolate, camomile tea, and even their pumpkin spice lattes.
According to the coffee shop’s customers, consuming coffee with shots of CBD oil has helped improve some of their health conditions like arthritis, body aches, and anxiety.
“It’s hard to explain but my brain would just calm down. I suffer from depression and anxiety. Normally with my anxiety, it’s about having quite bad repetitive thoughts, but this just slows that down. Every day before work I come in here. The coffee wakes me up but the CBD oil helps to chill me out. It says to me it’s ok, you’ve got this”, customer Lucy Bason told BBC.
According to the owner of the coffee shop, Jeff Lang, the age of their customers ranges from 18 to 80 years old. While most of their younger customers use CBD for anxiety, their older customers find it helps with painful conditions such as fibromyalgia (a disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues) and arthritis (an inflammation of one or more of your joints that causes joint pain and stiffness, which typically worsen with age), conditions that causes pain all over the body.
“People do come in here thinking it’s an actual cannabis coffee shop, thinking they’re going to have a cup of coffee and float out of here, but obviously that’s not the case at all,” coffee shop owner Jeff Lang explained.
