CBD, cannabidiol, is a compound naturally found in hemp and cannabis plants. Unlike the more commonly known THC(tetrahydrocannabinol), CBD is non-intoxicating, and it does not give a high sensation. Research shows that CBD promotes homeostasis-or the body's innate mechanism to maintain overall balance
Aside from homeostasis, CBD is reputed to be an effective antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent. However, despite the numerous studies supporting CBD’s therapeutic properties, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) prohibits all manufacturers using CBD as an active ingredient from making any claims about its healing abilities.

Following a 2014 legislation signed by former US President Barack Obama, the use of CBD is made legal nationwide so long as no state laws are broken. Farmers are now allowed to cultivate hemp for the purpose of extracting CBD, making it available over-the-counter in retail stores and online markets throughout the United States.
No. Christopher Bean Plus coffees are infused with industrial hemp oil which contains CBD, or cannabidiol. CBD is considered by the US-FDA as a dietary supplement.
No. You don’t need a prescription or medical card to get CBD products.
No. Our CBD-infused coffees have no more than 0.3% THC – the amount approved by federal law. Low THC levels are non-intoxicating and do not produce sensations of being high.
Terpenes are the aromatic and flavorful component of plant essential oils. Our CBD products contain a fair amount of terpenes, enough to tap into a phenomenon known as the “entourage effect.” This is a purported effect by which multiple compounds present in hemp interact with the body to create a “synergy,” maximizing the therapeutic effects of CBD oil.
No. Cannabidiol does not produce a high sensation associated with THC.
No. Christopher Bean Plus products are not genetically modified.
Data suggest that daily consumption of CBD-infused products do not contain sufficient quantities of THC to register on drug screens. Unless you take excessive amounts of THC in a short period of time (or through accumulation), you don’t have to worry about your coffee jeopardizing your drug tests.
We recommend consulting your doctor first before consuming any product with CBD, especially if you’re pregnant or lactating.
No. We currently do not ship to any US military base. We ship our Plus products anywhere in the United States, with a few states excluded due to local regulations. We do not ship to Canada and other international markets.
Research suggests cannabidiol has a wide range of therapeutic properties, although this is not legally recognized. We recommend consulting with your physician for a more concrete knowledge about CBD.
To extract CBD, we utilize a process in which C02 is at low temperature under high pressure. This allows us to capture C02 in a liquid state and efficiently draw the CBD and terpenes from the plant material.
Hemp plants have lower strains of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) compared to marijuana that has higher strains of THC. The THC strain in hemp plants is almost non-detectable, which is commonly referred to as CBD.
Since 1996, we have provided our consumers with only the best quality of coffee and tea. This new product line of CBD-infused coffees is sourced from organic hemp farmers grown and cultured in the United States. We partnered with the most experienced and trusted extracting companies, and all CBD oils we use for our coffees are independently tested to meet our quality standards.
