Marijuana-Roasted Coffee Is Now Legally Available for Purchase

CALIFORNIA: Los Angeles-based coffee company has figured out a way to sell marijuana-infused coffee all around the world regardless of state or country laws. According to Fast Company, Kian Abedini’s Compelling & Rich is now selling “herb conditioned” (in which the herb is marijuana) Ethiopian Yirgacheffe coffee beans. While the beans smell exactly like the green stuff, they won’t actually get anyone high because they don’t contain any THC.

Abedini tells LA Weekly that he makes the coffee by “essentially hot-boxing the roast room,” when he infuses the green coffee beans with marijuana. However, the product isn’t, er, medicated because the THC is burned off in the roasting process. Instead it just tastes and smells like cannabis. It was a lawyer who advised Abedini to label the bags at “herb-conditioned” coffee, instead of writing marijuana on the bags. While it might not get people high, the product — which can be purchased online — is in high demand. Abedini says his company’s server has crashed in the past from excited customers.

Those who want to actually wake and bake with a morning cup of coffee will have to head to Washington. A company called Fairwinds Manufacturing has created a marijuana-infused coffee — sold as grounds or in a k-cup format — that are now available in stores across the state.

Get high Every Morning With Marijuana K-cups

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.
