MAKING THC-INFUSED COFFEE: THE BASICS
Have you ever wondered how to make your own THC-infused coffee? It’s easier, tastier, and more beneficial than you think. A relatively new combination, it has been enjoyed for several years, with drinkers opting to “wake and bake” with an added twist of energy. If your mornings already include both caffeine and cannabis, THC-infused coffee may be just the thing your routine is craving. Did you know you can make it with coconut oil and just a few other ingredients? If you’re not sure you’ll like it, we think we can get you on board with some light arm-twisting.
What is it?
If you’re one of the many who’ve jumped on the keto diet train, you’re likely familiar with Bulletproof coffee–a high-calorie drink made with coffee, butter, and Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT) oil that is said to help the body burn more fat. Bulletproof coffee has been shown to have several benefits including heightened metabolism, improved gut health, and elevated mood. Since studies have shown that THC can help relieve symptoms of pain, nausea, anxiety, and more, adding it to the mix seems like the next logical step–especially if you want to maximize the possible health benefits.
Why we like it
Because THC-infused coffee is easily transported and concealed, it makes racing around in the morning much more bearable. Take it with you to work, to the gym, or to run your errands in a regular coffee thermos. Depending on your personal taste, you can also add it to your usual gummy, vaping or smoking routine. THC-infused coffee helps many people start their day off with a sense of tranquil alertness, a combination that could be worth trying if you’re up for the challenge.
In addition to the calming effects of THC, and the brain-boosting effects of MCT oil, THC-infused coffee is also delicious! As Lester Black puts it, “When done right, combining coffee and weed feels like adding fuel to the fire.” Now, who wouldn’t be intrigued by that?
How to make it
Now that we’ve got your juices flowing, let’s talk about how easy it is to make! Cannabis-infused coconut oil can simply be added to a regular cup of coffee with MCT oil, and unsalted butter. Once you put these ingredients together, add them to a blender for a few seconds for a “bubbly, latte-like cannabis coffee drink that will leave you feeling insensible–or at least pain-free–for most of the day.”
A THC-infused cup of coffee is a simple, almost obvious addition to your morning routine if you want to feel relaxed, but also energized. Give it a try, and let us know what you think!
