Vienna, the Capital of Austria and once the Habsburg monarchy’s crowning glory, ruled over not just much of Europe but many parts of the world. Today it’s one most livable cities in the world.
When we think of Vienna, we think of classical music, the Opera, Wurstel stands, Sacher Torte and majestic palaces that line the Ringstrasse in the city’s Altstadt. Not only is Vienna’s rich history famous for the aforementioned, but many consider it the first European city to embrace coffee and the famous café culture. Traditional coffee houses are still a staple on any intrepid explorer’s menu to the capital. These days, not only you can indulge in a classic Viennese coffee and cake, but you can enjoy a coffee with a twist. Have you ever tried CBD-infused coffee? Here’s our list of Viennese cafes and shops where you can relax with a “CBD” infused hot tonic, maybe a cheeky strudel on the side, or where to pick up the oils themselves.
What is CBD?
Let’s start by explaining what CBD is. CBD is an acronym for cannabidiol. It is a fundamental element of medical marijuana, while its oil is a cannabis extract. Although it is a component of marijuana, it won’t get you “high”, as tetrahydrocannabinol or THC is the one that invokes that sensation. CBD oil is a mixture of CBD and hemp seed oil or coconut oil and is considered to reduce anxiety, stimulate appetite and treat pain without causing psychoactive effects. If you wonder if it is legal to consume it, don’t worry, as almost every European country legalized it.

What are CBD infused drinks and food
Drinks and food infused by CBD are getting trendier with each new day. Think of this – you feel anxious or stressed, and you want to relax while enjoying your food or drink. Well, CBD-infused drinks and food can help you. But remember, these products will not serve to get you “high”, rather help you reduce insomnia, stress or relieve inflammation-related pain. There are numerous products infused with CBD: coffee, cocktails, various types of food, honey, even sparkling water, you name it. As the CBD market is developing and becoming more profitable (currently at around $2.1 billion), the number of varieties of products constantly grows with it. Now, let’s see some of the best spots to find them in Vienna.
