What exactly is caffeine?
Caffeine is a central nervous system stimulant. It is the world’s most widely consumed psychoactive drug. Unlike many other psychoactive substances, it is legal and unregulated in nearly all parts of the world. There are several ways to consume caffeine including coffee, tea, energy drinks, and soda. Caffeine works by blocking the neurotransmitter adenosine from binding to its receptors. This increases the firing of neurons and the release of neurotransmitters like dopamine and norepinephrine. Caffeine also increases the levels of the hormone epinephrine (adrenaline). The effects of caffeine can be felt within 15-20 minutes and can last up to 6 hours. Caffeine is addictive and can lead to tolerance, withdrawal, and other side effects.
