Cannabis Infused Coffee

Cannabis Infused Coffee

For some people, this is the most enjoyable way to start or end the day, combining two products they love: coffee and cannabis; the science concludes that coffee consumption increases the desire to consume cannabis. We discuss how to prepare this combination and its effects, among other things.

THC and Coffee

Just in case you’re wondering what the difference between THC and CBD is, THC has more psychoactive effects than CBD and is what makes you feel the high or euphoric sensation. Otherwise, CBD and THC have very similar benefits. THC can be used to help people manage pain, muscle spasticity, glaucoma, insomnia, low appetite, nausea, and anxiety. 

Edibles, including cannabis in both food or drink form, are a great alternative to smoking. While ingesting weed is less harmful to your lungs than smoking, it can also give you a better high because edible cannabis first passes through your stomach and then liver before it gets into your bloodstream and brain. Your liver converts THC into a stronger form and therefore adds to the intensity of the high. It can also make your high last for much longer!

Basic step guide to delicious and impeccable THC-infused coffee.

  1. Break weed down into small pieces.
  2. Heat three cups of water over medium heat on hob. Add butter or coconut oil when water is boiling
  3. Sprinkle the crushed up cannabis and leave for 35 to 40 minutes.
  4. Strain the mixture through a small hole sieve.
  5. Take your coffee of choice and add the combination together.

Can THC Be Used in Coffee?

But wait, can THC be used in coffee? We hear you – if you’ve never tried cannabis-infused food or drink before, this concept might come as a bit of a surprise. Believe it or not, though, consuming THC through edibles is not only delicious but also gets to work much more effectively and the effects last longer, too.

People have been combining cannabis with food and drink for many years – much to our delight! So whether you are looking for a tastier way to consume weed, or want to avoid smoking, you can indulge in our THC coffee recipe to do just that.

The Science Of Cannabis Coffee

Cannabis coffee contains two main components: caffeine and THC. It’s the combination of those two chemicals that makes cannabis coffee unique.

At the biological level, the caffeine in cannabis coffee (or even just regular coffee) does a number of cool things, including:

  • Boosts the effects of serotonin and dopamine
  • Blocks adenosine receptors in your brain (so you don’t feel tired)
  • Signals the release of adrenaline
  • Increases blood flow
  • Helps muscles contract

All of those effects combine into the umbrella idea that coffee gives you energy and makes you more alert.

Cannabis Infused Coffee Recipe #1

Ingredients & Supplies

  • ½ gram of ganja
  • 3 cups of water
  • 2 tablespoons of butter or coconut oil
  • Pan or kettle for boiling
  • Strainer
  • Large bowl or 4-cup measuring cup for straining
  • Pan or coffee maker for final brewing

How To Add THC To Your Coffee

1) Grind

Chop your weed as finely as possible.

You’re certainly welcome to shred your buds with a knife if that makes you happy. But we live by the maxim, “Work smarter, not harder,” and choose to use a grinder instead. It’s easier, faster, and just plain better.

Don’t make your life any more difficult than it has to be.

2) Boil

Pour 3 cups of water into a pan and bring to a boil. If you need more explanation for this step, you might want to step aside and let someone else take over.

Once the water is boiling, toss in 2 tablespoons of butter or coconut oil.

3) Simmer

When the butter or oil is completely melted, reduce the heat until the water simmers (think gentle boil).

Sprinkle in your ground cannabis from step one and let the whole thing stew for 40 minutes. Stir the brew several times so the plant matter doesn’t stick to the side of the pan.

4) Strain

After 40 minutes, pour the water/oil/bud mix through a strainer to remove the shredded sinsemilla. Don’t worry. It’s already given up the good stuff (cannabinoids and terpenes) during the 40-minute simmer session.

So unless you like floaties in your hot beverage, get rid of that gunk.

5) Brew

Now you’re ready to make your cannabis coffee!

Pour the water you just boiled into a coffee maker or pot. Add your favorite coffee grounds and brew away.

6) Blend (Optional)

As your cannabis coffee cools, the butter or oil will separate from the water. You can extend the time the mix stays in solution by running your brewed coffee through a blender before drinking.

    Coffee and cannabis are the perfect compliment. I find that they enhance the flavor of each other. Also coffee reduces any lethargy that may be caused from the cannabis. The Canadians knew what they were doing when they decided to sell cannabis in coffeeshops.

    Okay guys, I am just curious whether can we make weed infused coffee and get high off it? Like add some weed in water, heat it and add coffee and sugar? Can I get high off this? PS- Ik a ‘noobish’ question but am really curious about it? Thanks 🙂

      Do this OP. I highly recommend coconut oil since it has a relatively high fat content. (The THC has to bind to fat molecules in order to be consumed effectively). So just decarbalize the weed in the oven for a lil bit, then mix it in with the coconut oil on the stovetop for a couple hours. Then you can strain it and use the oil in coffee. I had a big jar of cococannanut oil and would make my special “Medicated Hot Chocolates” lmao they were great. You can find recipes online that will give you the correct temps and times for everything, I’m sure there are thousands to pick from.

        Hi. Please, explain the decarboxylation process i may go about this this weekend i dont use weed often and hate putting things in my lungs.

        1. SoberBear88

          It’s basically like ‘priming’ the weed.. You can google for a precise recipe with oven temp and time but I’d suggest putting it in the oven 225°F for about 45min. This just helps break down the thc before you put it in the coconut oil on the stovetop. So decarb it then throw it in a saucepan with the oil, simmer on lowish temp anywhere from 1-6hrs ( the longer you simmer the more thc you get to bind to the oil) hope this helps.

            Thanks for that i might try it out in a few days just to do it. I have epilepsy and weed tends to make the symptoms worse but hell i want the experience under my belt lol.

        2. SoberBear8820

          Hmm, that’s very interesting. Cannabis makes your epilepsy symptoms worse? What symptoms do you experience from epilepsy if you don’t mind me asking? I’ve always been under the impression that CBD/THC have pretty effective anti-convulsant properties. But tbf I am not really to well versed on epilepsy.
