We headed to Star Anise Cafe in Stroud to find out more about CBD oil, where customers now have the option of three drops of CBD oil in their coffee, which is said to reduce annoying side effects like anxiety and jitters.

In recent years, CBD oil has become increasingly popular, but it’s not without a bit of controversy – as the oil is derived from the compound in cannabis that doesn’t get you high, and is popping up in everything from salads to sundaes.

The active ingredient in coffee is caffeine. It’s what makes us feel altered, focused, and awake — but it can also make us feel anxious and increase our heart rate. The main reason to add CBD oil to coffee is to negate these side effects — especially in people sensitive to caffeine.
