CBD for Coffee Shops in the UK
Coffee shops in the UK are well known for their diverse selection of coffee add-ons. From flavor, to sugar, milk, etc. There are a number of things you can add to your coffee, but CBD drops?
Not a lot of British people would walk into a coffee shop expecting cannabis-derived drops could be added to their daily coffee. But according to an Evening Standard report, the latest coffee trend in the UK is the addition of CBD for coffee shops. More and more coffee shops in the UK are trying CBD and with surprise are seeing a big increase in sales and new customer walk-ins.
Since the addition of CBD into beverages began, CBD for coffee shops in the UK has been on the rise and is not showing any signs of slowing down. CBD is the short form for Cannabidiol, which is one of over 113 chemical compounds found in cannabis plant. CBD is a naturally occurring substance, and is used to make products in different forms with the main objective being easy for you to consume the CBD. CBD is known to make its user calm and give them a feeling of relaxation. Unlike its cousin THC, known to be the chemical compound in cannabis that gives the user a psychoactive high feeling.
Studies suggest the average CBD user is aged between 25 – 50. They have a higher educational degree and are more likely to be in full time employment. From this, we know that our potential customers are of legal age, educated enough to be thinking about their health and wellness and they have an expendable allowance to invest in products like CBD.
In the United Kingdom, CBD can be used to make CBD oil, tinctures and vapes. However some people started to look for easier and more efficient alternatives. This is where CBD edibles entered the market.
The problem with traditional CBD oils in Coffee
Regular CBD enthusiasts in the UK have now started to add CBD oil to their coffee. But there is however, one very big problem with this. The majority of these products are oil based and basic chemistry will tell us that oil and water do not mix well. If you are adding your CBD oil to your drink, and then you consume that drink, you will likely see the oil globules floating around the glass or even worse, stuck to the side. What little CBD oil is consumed; studies suggest only around 10 – 20% is absorbed into the blood because the body struggles to absorb. If that wasn’t enough of a deterrent, It’s important the CBD you are adding is clean, clear, with no strong bitter taste. It’s vital for customer retention, that it does not change the color of the coffee when added, and it also does not alter the taste. So your customers can drink their coffee with a daily dose of CBD without changing the experience of drinking the coffee.
Often UK coffee shops end up in a situation where customers are paying a premium to have their daily coffee with a dose of CBD oil but in the end, absorbing very little of it. To bridge this gap between CBD and everyday consumables, Enjoy CBD has launched Soluble Plus. A truly water-soluble CBD concentrate that can be added to any food or beverage making it ideal for a café or coffee shop in the UK. What’s more, Soluble plus is completely clean, clear and tasteless meaning your customers can enjoy their favourite coffee each morning and still have their CBD dose at the same time with no change in taste or appearance.
Why are people adding CBD drops to Coffee in the UK?
Inside the body, we all have a system called the Endocannabinoid system. This a complex network of chemical compounds and receptors that are constantly working to balance out the functions in the body. This effectively brings it to homeostasis and makes it function optimally. CBD’s stimulation and support of the Endocannabinoid system may help it continue to run efficiently. This is just one of the reasons why CBD in the United kingdom is growing in popularity. Many consumers in England even swear that it has helped them however more scientific studies need to be carried out before any claims can be made.
Although CBD for coffee shops might be a relatively new industry trend. The consumption of CBD itself is not new. There are many ways in which people take CBD. The different consumption methods include vaping, capsules, tinctures, oil, and edibles. All are relatively easy methods, however, there are no limitations to how you can incorporate CBD into your everyday life. CBD consumers are always looking for the most efficient and cost effective way to consume their favorite product. That’s why the introduction of CBD for coffee shops is making waves.

Finally, a bridging the gap between CBD and everyday consumables, such as coffee.
Soluble Plus CBD drops allows businesses to take their products to the next level. Let’s look at coffee in the UK, for instance. Offering customers the option to add a dose of CBD to their morning coffee will not only attract more customers through the door but provide an extra lucrative income stream by potentially doubling the profitability of drinks sold.
Soluble Plus overcomes the solubility dilemma by breaking down the particles. Particles so small they are less than 5 nano meters. To put that in perspective that’s about a billionth of a meter! This process involves ‘wrapping’ CBD molecules in water to unify the two elements into one amazing formula. Since the body is made up of 60% water, Soluble Plus allows the body to absorb much more CBD than other oils.
