Cannabidiol, also known as CBD, has boomed in recent years and has become one of the most popular products on the market. Its popularity comes from its pain management abilities as well as its effectiveness in reducing the symptoms of some mental health problems. A major part of the appeal of CBD is that it does not contain THC, the psychoactive component found in marijuana. As a result, it does not produce a mind-altering high and is not habit-forming.
Aside from helping manage pain and treat distressing symptoms of mental illnesses like depression and anxiety, CBD is also an effective tool for boosting energy levels. While CBD can be used in many forms, one of the easiest ways to increase your energy with CBD is by drinking CBD energy shots.
What is a CBD Energy Shot?
A CBD energy shot is a liquid drink similar to other popular energy shot drinks like 5-Hour Energy or Redline. It comes in a small, two-ounce bottle that users can drink on its own straight out of the bottle or mixed with another beverage. The small bottle size makes these shots very portable and convenient for those on the go, fitting easily in bags and even pockets. Each shot typically contains a CBD dosage of 10-50 milligrams, with most containing around 20 mg. Depending on the brand, a CBD energy shot can also have ingredients such as caffeine, B vitamins, sugars, and even taurine (which is commonly found in energy drinks like Monster or Redbull). Still, customers looking for more natural energy shots shouldn’t have trouble finding CBD energy shots that do not use these other ingredients and only have CBD and natural vitamins and minerals in them.
One of the reasons people choose to use CBD to boost their energy levels is that it works by impacting the endocannabinoid system in the body. This system controls body functions like pain, immune response, and sleep. When you introduce CBD, a cannabinoid your body does not create on its own into your body, it binds to receptors in your nervous system and produces positive effects like energy increases.
Because the main ingredient in a CBD energy shot is CBD itself, it is a safer alternative to the traditional gas station energy drinks. However, consuming any type of energy drink can be dangerous, even when the main ingredient is natural. One of the risks associated with energy drinks, in general, is that they can negatively impact those with health issues such as high blood pressure and cardiac problems. It’s always a good idea to consult your doctor before adding a new supplement or medicinal ingredient to your routine to lower the risk of a negative reaction. Despite these potential risks, there are also several benefits associated with CBD energy shots.

Benefits of CBD Energy Shots
CBD energy shots are beneficial in both physical and psychological ways. When it comes to one’s physical wellbeing, CBD energy shots can be a safer option than other energy shots because they:
- Typically contain less caffeine than coffee or other energy drinks
- Do not usually contain any harmful substances or additives
- Improve energy levels and wakefulness
- Improve workouts and other physical activities by producing a boost of energy while reducing any inflammation in the muscles that would otherwise impact the effectiveness of a workout or physical activity
- Can provide longer-lasting energy than other energy drinks
- Fewer side effects than prescription stimulants
From a psychological standpoint, a CBD energy shot can be beneficial because the use of it can:
- Increase focus and attention
- Improve a person’s mood (e.g. by creating enough of an energy boost that it encourages a person to engage in activity that can release dopamine in the brain, such as working out)
- Replace the need for prescription medications such as Adderall and Ritalin, especially for users who only need those medications in certain situations
A CBD energy shot can produce these and other benefits, however, it is always important to use these types of energy shots and other energy drinks with caution. Consuming anything that can increase energy may produce minor to severe reactions.
One valuable recommendation for those just starting out using CBD energy shots is to start small and see how your body reacts. Everyone will experience a slightly different reaction to CBD energy shots due to several factors like metabolism and genetics. As you get a better idea of what works for your body to achieve the desired energy levels, you can adjust your dosage. Generally, do not consume more than two bottles per 24 hour period.
You can start to feel the effects very quickly, within as few as 10 minutes, and they may last for many hours. With less reliance on high amounts of caffeine and sugar as energy-boosting ingredients, CBD energy shots generally don’t cause as strong a jittery side effect and eventual energy crash.
