WASHINGTON: As more and more states legalize marijuana for recreational use, edibles and infusions are becoming a massive marketplace. Yahoo Finance now reports that coffee businesses are now infusing cannabis in their brews, ready to be bought in K-cups and coffee pods.
Uncle Ike’s Pot Shop of Seattle sells pods of “premium infused” coffee, containing 10mg of THC, for $10 each. “I liken it to a Red Bull and vodka,” Uncle Ike’s sales manager Jennifer Lanzador told Yahoo. “I had more energy, but I still had the relaxation you get from cannabis.” The pods are becoming big sellers — probably because of their undeniable convenience — and now reportedly account for 60 percent of Uncle Ike’s coffee sales.
