If your work colleague is looking less rattly post-morning mochaccino it’s because cannabidiol coffees are piping hot right now.

Certainly, CBD, the voguish cannabis derivative finding its way into everything from bath bombs to dog treats, is becoming as crucial to the London caffeine run as oat milk and an extra shot.
