Pot Luck

Enhanced BeansDudes, Stoners, rejoice again: waking and baking just got a  whole lot easier, thanks to weed-infused coffee pods, I kid you not, which are in fact a real thing.  Now you can get the jump-start from coffee and the chillness from weed, all at the same time.  Wow, a caffeine infused rush, that ought to get the body smoking in the morning.  How does that work in practice?  Do the two cancel each other out?  Do you get all the wakening power from caffeine, but not the jitters, thanks to the weed?  If anybody has access to these weed coffee pods, would love to hear about the experience.

Don’t take off for your local grocery store, coffee retailer, or amazon just yet, though.  It looks like at the moment most, if not all of companies that make THC-cups are located in California or Washington, for obvious reasons.  Also, I checked the websites of two of the makers of the coffee pods, Uncle Ike’s Pot Shop in Seattle, and House of Jane in California, and both confirmed that if you want to get your hands on some THC-cups, you’re going to have to go to Washington or California.  Until then, roll a blount.

One side effect to consider is that the cannibis infused coffee might just give you a case of the munchies.  Something for those diet followers to be aware of, when considering pot coffee.

Uncle Ike’s Pot Shop sells k-cups with 10mg of THC for $10, or as a 6 pack for $37.  They also sell ground coffee with THC for $42, for those who don’t have one of the Keurig single-serve coffee machines.  As Yahoo notes, 10mg is commonly used as a standard serving for marijuana edibles, like cookies, chocolates and even sodas.

One customer likened the THC-infused coffee to a Red Bull and Vodka, more energy with the relaxation of cannabis.

For now, these seem the only two places in the US that sell THC k-cups, but we’ll likely see more companies selling pot-infused coffees and other unique goods as they look beyond the traditional wares of cookies, brownies,  and chocolates to give customers new ways to ge high as more states legalize marijuana use.

Live long, prosper, and consume responsibly!
