Yes, you read that correctly. Weed coffee is a real thing and it’s about to become a lot more popular. Here we breakdown what’s in weed coffee, how you can get it, and why it’s going to be a staple in the CannaBeverage game for the foreseeable future.
What Is Weed Coffee?
Weed coffee is exactly what it sounds like: Cannabis-infused coffee. Instead of waking and baking before your morning cup of java, you can now enjoy the benefits of cannabis and coffee all within the same cup. Like edibles, weed coffee comes in a variety of different THC to caffeine ratios, so there’s a style of brew for everyone and their personal preferences.
One of the best things about weed coffee is how discrete it is to consume. You’re literally drinking coffee (albeit coffee infused with weed), so walking around your home or office while sipping from a coffee cup won’t rouse the suspicions of anyone. You can even publicly enjoy weed coffee in a traveler’s mug worry free without disturbing anyone!
The “Perks” Of Weed Coffee
Think of weed coffee as an extension of flower in terms of its effects. Just as there are strains for everything from improving your attention span to pain relief, so too are there weed coffee “flavors” that help address the same kinds of circumstances. Whether you’re looking to improve your sleep, snag a cerebral buzz or simply relax and unwind, there are a variety of weed coffee options that can deliver what you’re looking for, and they come in all of the different types of styles coffee comes in. There’s bottled weed coffee, weed coffee pods, and now easy ways to make coffee at home by yourself.
Over The Counter Options
Just like going to the grocery store to purchase your favorite coffee beans or bottled cold brew, weed coffee is increasingly being offered for purchase at dispensaries in states where weed has been legalized. As more and more states legalize marijuana, the accessibility to weed coffee is expected to increase dramatically. Like its sister cannabis beverages – tonics and seltzers – weed coffee is primed to take over the cannabis market given people’s daily affinity for coffee. Pairing weed and coffee together was thus a no brainer, and when it comes to ease of accessibility, nothing beats the premade brews you can buy online or at a dispensary.
Current bottled weed coffee leaders include the energetic boost from Therapy Tonics’ cannabis coffee and the most popular weed coffee brand, Canyon – the original cannabis coffee – which is now infused with nitrogen.
For a more cost effect weed coffee option, look to weed coffee pods. It seems the weed coffee pods are more CBD-infused these days rather than weed-infused, which may have something to do with the current and ever changing marijuana rules and regulations. Regardless, CBD coffee pods work and look like regular coffee pods, except they contain hemp and CBD extracts. Simply load the weed coffee pod into your favorite coffee pod brewer and you’re good to go.
Leading the charge in the “weed” coffee pod space are companies like Pot-O-Coffee, House of Jane, and Bearded Man, all of which offer a variety of different flavors and sensations.
Making Weed Coffee Yourself
Coffee consumption – like cannabis – is a ritual, and for some that ritual includes the art of making coffee from the ground up. You select the beans, grind the beans, and then insert the grounds into your favorite coffee making device. With weed coffee, it’s the same process, except you get to combine the ritual of drinking coffee with the ritual of getting high. What a treat!
To brew your own weed coffee, here’s what you’ll need:
-Coffee beans or coffe grounds
-Cannabutter or cannabis oil
First, brew your favorite coffee in an 8oz, 12oz (or more) cup. Next, blend ome tablespoon of cannabutter or cannabis oil in a blender. Pour the brewed coffee over the butter/oil mixture and blend or mix further. Voila! You’ve just made weed coffee all by yourself. Simply pour back into a coffee cup and enjoy!
