Denver Dispensary Shares Facts About Cannabis Coffee

November 14, 2018

Nothing beats a great cup of coffee. It’s the perfect way to start the day, an ideal pick-me-up in the afternoon, and (when decaffeinated) the perfect way to end the day. However, when combined with cannabis, our favorite beverage becomes a whole new creation. Cannabis-infused coffee is quickly becoming a mainstream edible, but it’s still relatively new on the scene. Before you rush out to your favorite dispensaries in Denver to pick some up, familiarize yourself with these fun facts.

Caffeine Might Make The High More Intense

THC can give you a nice relaxing high that helps you relax or stimulate your creative juices depending on the type of strain you use. When you combine marijuana with coffee, the caffeine may just make that high more intense or last longer. Obviously, this will vary from person to person and probably has a lot to do with your personal tolerance to both marijuana and coffee. Either way, enjoy responsibly and in moderation until you know how the combination of weed and caffeine impact you. 

Cannabis Coffee is Available with CBD and THC

Pre-made cannabis coffee is available with just CBD as well as the high-inducing THC. This means you’re free to enjoy your cannabis coffee with or without a buzz. If you opt for CBD coffee, you’ll still receive the same amount of energy that you would from a normal cup of coffee and can legally enjoy your cup anywhere. If you opt for THC coffee, the same use restrictions that apply for normal weed are in place. You’re free to drink the beverage at home or in a designated marijuana use area. Drinking the beverage in public could lead to legal repercussions and fines. When in doubt, be safe and enjoy your cannabis coffee at home or at a friend’s house. 

You Can Make Your Own

Coffee tastes vary from person to person. Some of us love dark roast while others tend to stick to light varieties. This means that many pre-packaged cannabis coffees might not be your ideal cup of joe. Luckily, like most beverages, you can make your own cannabis-infused coffee. Start with your favorite freshly roasted beans or pre-ground coffee. As a general rule, opt for a good medium grind. This will work with most coffee makers and provide a delicious brew. Grind ¼ ounce of your favorite marijuana strain and combine with about 8 tablespoons of ground coffee. Mix thoroughly and brew your coffee like normal. This will make about strong cups, but the recipe can be adjusted accordingly. Once brewed, enjoy your beverage or dress it up with cream, sugar, or flavored syrups to taste. 

Cannabis coffee is a great way to enjoy two of our favorite things: marijuana and a fresh cup of the black stuff. All you need is the right pot to make the beverage perfect.
