Sträva RestoreRead More
reviewed by DJ Reetz
Don’t ask me to do anything before I’ve had my first cup of coffee. Seriously, the best response you’re likely to get is an indignant glare and an apathetic shrug. If it’s the morning following a rough night, that response gets even testier. Fortunately for everybody at the THC offices, we’ve got plenty of Sträva coffee on hand.
Each bag is infused with full-spectrum hemp oil derived from locally grown Colorado hemp, and every 12-ounce bag of the Restore is imparted with approximately 120 milligrams of CBD. That averages out to around five milligrams of CBD per cup of coffee. It might not be enough to replace your current CBD regimen if you’re using it as medicine, but it makes a nice addition to a cup of Joe and helps keep any caffeine jitters in check as you’re slamming your morning cups.
Some CBD companies might cut corners on the quality of the coffee when producing a product like this, but Sträva is focused on the quality of their roast. They’re a coffee company first, and their passion for quality coffee is apparent. Restore is a Colombian roast with a deep, rich aroma and taste on par with any other bagged coffee you’ll find at the grocery store or coffee shop. It’s good coffee all on its own, and the CBD is icing on a tasty, invigorating cake.
Sträva offers several varieties of CBD-infused coffees with different amounts of CBD, as well as a full line of traditional roasts. With such a wealth of options, you’re sure to find one that fits your preferences. www.stravacraftcoffee.com
