Stop Hitting “Snooze” With Brewbudz
There are very few people in the world who relish the idea of getting out of bed and getting the working day started. In order to be able to function in the real world, folks give themselves a little boost in the morning. For cannabis smokers, that usually means a wake-n-bake start to the day, while caffeine lovers chug down coffee by the gallon so that they can face what lies ahead. If you love both, you no longer need to feel forced to choose one or the other, as cannabis infused coffee products are now hitting the market in a big way.
In the states where marijuana has now been legalized, the demand for THC-infused edibles and other products is on the rise. It really was only a matter of time before coffee got the cannabis treatment, and that new product was recently unveiled in Nevada by a company called Brewbudz. They plan on delivering the cannabis coffee in individual pods that will fit in your Keurig machine, and while they are stating out in Nevada, they hope to be in Colorado and California sooner rather than later.
While the partnering of cannabis and caffeine may seem like an odd choice, the way this product is made is different from other edibles currently on the market. The THC levels in your average edible sits at about 5%, which is usually more than enough to get you flying pretty high. The levels in the coffee fall somewhere between 40% and 50%, which may lead you to believe that you would be stoned out of your mind after drinking your morning brew, but that is actually not the case, and for a very good reason.
Most edibles contain highly concentrated oils, which contributes to the very clean high, but the coffee in question here is infused with the flowers of the plant. The makers of the cannabis-infused coffee claim that this method of infusion leads to a mellower high where you are able to relax and be still be able to function at work. This could very well lead to office workers gathering round the coffee station as opposed to the water cooler, and we assume that the conversations there will be a good deal more chill than the usual office drama.
The Brewbudz cannabis-infused coffee pods should start making their way into dispensaries in the very near future, but the price may be a little off-putting to some. The average Keurig coffee pod comes in at around 50 cents to $1, but the Brewbudz pods are rumored to be hitting the market at around $7 each. That price may start to come down if the pods take off and they end up being mass-produced. We can’t wait to try one, just to see what kind of buzz you get from a combination of caffeine and cannabis. These are two of our favorite things, so we are hoping the partnership is a magical one.
