CBD and USA
In the United States, cannabidiol is a Schedule I drug under the Controlled Substances Act. This means that production, distribution, and possession of CBD is illegal under federal law. In addition, in 2016 the Drug Enforcement Administration ( https://www.dea.gov/ )added “marijuana extracts” to the list of Schedule I drugs. That means it is defined as “an extract containing one or more cannabinoids. That means it has been derived from any plant of the genus Cannabis. Other than the separated resin (whether crude or purified) obtained from the plant.
“In March 2014, President Obama signed into law HR 1474: “To provide for rescheduling marijuana in order to facilitate research”.
As of August 2016, there is no conclusive scientific evidence that supports that marijuana is effective as a treatment for any medical condition.

Mixing CBD and Coffee:
The benefits of mixing CBD with coffee are not well-known yet but it can be assumed that they will be just as beneficial as CBD alone or coffee alone. .The purpose of this study, therefore, is to compare the effects of CBD and coffee on mood and anxiety.
The participants were randomly assigned to receive either CBD or coffee with a low-dose of CBD and a high-dose non-active placebo in addition to their usual daily intake. The participants were given the treatment for 1 week in total.
The primary outcome measures were the Yale Global Tension Scale and the Hamilton Anxiety Rating Scale at baseline and after 1 week of treatment.
Key results of this study show that CBD did not have any effects on mood and anxiety in healthy participants. However, CBD did have an effect on the sleep quality of healthy participants and resulted in a significant reduction of night time sleep disturbance. Additionally, those who consumed caffeine had significantly less night time sleep disturbance than those who took a low-dose non-active placebo…
CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid that has been shown to reduce anxiety and promote relaxation without the high of THC. It is also known to have anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties. While caffeine is a stimulant that stimulates the central nervous system, enhances alertness, and increases energy levels.

Another study found that combining caffeine with CBD enhanced cognitive performance on certain tasks like attentional vigilance, short-term memory, working memory, reasoning ability, as well as accuracy on spatial planning tasks.
