How to Make Your Own Cannabis-Infused Coffee

If you’re a coffee lover and cannabis connoisseur, there’s nothing better than an infused brew to elevate your day. Cannabis-infused coffee is a great way to get your caffeine boost. It may also provide plenty of health benefits, such as increased mental focus and anxiety relief, and it can even balance out the effects of caffeine.


There are many ways to make your cannabis-infused coffee at home. You can go for the classic additions like CBD-infused milk and sugar, or try adding a touch of cannabis-infused butter for a creamy coffee experience.


Making your own cannabis coffee also gives you control over the dosage and strength of your infusion. This article will focus on the benefits of cannabis-infused coffee and share four easy ways you can make your super brew at home. Grab your favourite mug and read on.



CBD vs THC-Infused Coffee

Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) are derived from the cannabis plant and have the same chemical composition, but their atoms are arranged differently. This results in the body’s receptors responding to CBD and THC differently.


THC is a psychoactive compound causing a euphoric high. Cannabidiol (CBD), on the other hand, does not produce psychoactive effects, as it does not bind to the body’s cannabinoid receptors as strongly as THC does.


Both compounds have been shown to have a wide range of health benefits and are often used to treat conditions like  pain, inflammation, and even symptoms of depression and anxiety.



What Happens When You Mix Cannabis With Coffee?

There is a bit of irony in combining cannabis with coffee, as the two ingredients can work in entirely different ways. While CBD and THC have calming properties, the caffeine in coffee is a powerful stimulant that wakes your body up and gives you energy.


Caffeine and cannabis are perhaps two of the most popular psychoactive products, but research on cannabis-infused coffee is still limited.


Existing studies show that coffee impacts the cannabinoid receptors in the body, much like THC and CBD. But more research is needed to understand the impact of caffeine and cannabis fully.


If you have never had cannabis-coffee before, start with a low dose and gradually increase the potency as needed. It’s better to experiment with a low dosage first rather than be overwhelmed by unwanted side effects. And remember, everyone’s tolerance is uniquely their own.



What Are Some Potential Benefits of Cannabis Coffee?

It comes as no surprise that many people want to enjoy the potential health benefits of cannabis with their morning cup of coffee.


Studies show that CBD and THC may alleviate some symptoms associated with anxiety and inflammation and may even help treat several medical conditions. But what happens when you add cannabis to coffee?


If you’re wondering why cannabis-infused coffee has gained attention among coffee enthusiasts, you can see why it has its “perks”.


1. Cannabis-infused coffee may improve your focus:

Coffee is associated with alertness and improved focus. However, it may make you a little jittery if you drink too much coffee. Since CBD and THC can produce a relaxed state, cannabis-infused coffee can counteract the stimulating effects of caffeine.


2. Cannabis-infused coffee may help reduce anxiety:

One of the reasons people drink cannabis-infused coffee is to reduce the symptoms related to anxiety. Caffeine is an anxiogenic, so it may cause and fuel anxiety. The good news is preclinical evidence shows that cannabis may help relieve anxiety, so infusing your coffee with CBD or THC can reduce the effects of caffeine.


3. Cannabis-infused coffee may help with pain relief:

Cannabis is popularly known for its pain-relieving properties. So if you suffer from chronic pain, adding cannabis to your coffee may be one of the ways you can alleviate your discomfort.



Five Easy Ways to Make Your Own Cannabis-Infused Coffee

Drinking a cup of cannabis-infused coffee in the morning can get your day off to a great start. Whether you prefer a regular cup of Joe, a shot of espresso or whipped cream topped latte, here are four ways you can infuse your coffee of choice in the comfort of your own home.


1.   Cannabis Butter

Cannabutter is butter that has been infused with cannabis. Adding a spoonful or cube of velvety cannabis butter to your coffee creates a deliciously rich flavour that’s hard to beat, not to mention it adds a dose of healthy fat to your morning diet.


How much cannabis butter should you use? The amount is up to you, but remember to start low and modify as needed until you get the desired effect.



2.   CBD Oil

Adding CBD oil to your cup of coffee is one of the easiest ways to make CBD-infused coffee. Simply add a few drops and mix well.


Most CBD oil bottles come with droppers to help you determine the best dosage for your needs. Keep in mind CBD oil can contain varying amounts of THC, depending on the extraction method used. To learn more about CBD Oil, discover a new read here.



3.   Cannabis Sugar & Canna Honey

If you are in the habit of adding a bit of sugar to your coffee, cannabis-infused sugar or cannasugar is an excellent option. Making cannasugar at home is not as complicated as it sounds, but it does require patience.


Cannasugar can be stored in an airtight container, just like regular sugar, to enjoy whenever the mood strikes.


Another sweet variation you can add to your brew is cannabis-infused honey, or cannahoney. Try making it at home with this recipe, or you can purchase premade CBD honey sticks at your local FIKA shop.



4.   Cannabis Milk

Cannabis milk is a great way to boost your regular coffee. You can use it on its own or use it as a base to make other cannabis-infused treats like cream.


When making your cannabis-infused milk at home, keep in mind cannabinoids such as THC and CBD absorb more into liquids with higher fat content. This means whole milk or cream infused with cannabis will produce a more potent high than skim milk or 1% milk.



Should You Try Cannabis-Infused Coffee?

The possible benefits of cannabis-infused coffee are becoming more widely known, both among cannabis lovers and coffee drinkers alike. The great thing about making your infusion is that you can decide on the level of THC and CBD and experiment with different ingredients to find a combo that’s right for you.


Whether you want to simply add a few drops of infused oil to  your morning or afternoon coffee or like the idea of making your own cannabutter, cannasugar, or cannabis milk, there are plenty of ways to infuse your brew with the many potential benefits of cannabis.
