Coffee definitely contains psychoactive compounds other than caffeine


Welcome to the EliteFitness.com Bodybuilding Site! Please join this discussion about Coffee definitely contains psychoactive compounds other than caffeine within the Chat & Conversation category.

Excerpt: I know this for certain because I drank a lot of coffee over a two week period then quit on Saturday. Yesterday and today I had green tea which has a significant amount of caffeine but I didn't get nearly the same effects. Less of a go-getter attitude, just more awake and stressed out. I know g. tea is healthier but I like the effects of coffee better. Anyone else? JC

    I think it's messed up that those three are legal and not pot. I wonder if legalizing pot would reduce cig and booze consumption, some people that currently use the latter two might get the buzz they need from pot. Perhaps lobbying from tobacco and booze companies is why pot isn't legal?

    PS I'm not a big pot smoker, I just think alcohol is a very strong drug and cogarettes are the devil.

    caffeine increases dopamine levels, and green tea has about half the caffeine in it as coffee does.

    dopamine is the main neurotransmitter responsible for feeling pleasure, and as a result is the main thing to look at when watching what causes addiciton

    Ok,the reason for this is:

    1.less caffeine in tea
    2. tea contains l-theanine which lowers BP and has relaxing effects as well.

    Do any of you coffee drinkers ever try to take a few weeks off, or cycle your caffeine consumption? I am thinking about taking a cycling approach to coffee like 2 weeks on, 2 weeks off or something like that.
