How To Make Cannabis Coffee

Over the years, I have learned that I love a good ‘wake and bake’ to start my day, and my Well With Cannabis Facebook Group members let me know I’m not alone.

Many people perfer to medicate with cannabis edibles, rather than smoking or vaping, which leads us to cannabis coffee.

Millions of people love to start their day with cannabis, and for so many, cannabis and coffee have become the perfect morning pairing.

Thankfully, there are SO many different ways to make an amazing cup of cannabis coffee, all of which compliment the coffee and creamer you already use.

There is no one right way to make a cup of cannabis coffee, so here we will share our seven favorite methods for making the best cup of cannabis coffee according to your preferences and what you have available.

We will be exploring the following ways to make the perfect cup of cannabis coffee:

  1. Cannabis Butter
  2. Cannabis Coconut Oil
  3. THC or CBD Oil
  4. Cannabis Alcohol Tincture
  5. Cannabis Sugar
  6. Cannabis Concentrates: CBD Concentrate and Full-Extract Cannabis Oil (FECO)
  7. Leftover Cannabis Pulp

How Much Should I Add to My Coffee?

As humans, we all have our own unique endocannabinoid systems, explaining why we all react to cannabis differently.

I am not going to give specific dosage measurements here in this post because there is so much variability in the options availble.

There are so many variables that will impact your product’s final dose.

This includes, but is not limited to, what method you choose, whether you start with CBD hemp flower or THC flower, whether you went through the decarboxylation process, and how much material you started with.

My advice, as always, is to start low and go slow. Start with a ¼-½ teaspoon if your infusion of choice and work your way up from there.

If you’re still unsure of how to find your perfect dose and learn what works best for your body, be sure to check out the education offered in my Cannabis Compass Online Course.

Mixing Cannabis Coffee with Milk Frother

Note: Separation Will Occur

It’s important to keep in mind that mixing coffee and cannabis oil is like mixing oil and vinegar; they don’t naturally stay together well.

You will likely notice the oil floating on the top of your coffee after the cup is left to sit for a few minutes. This is harmless and left to your personal taste and texture preferences.

If you do not like the oil separation, I recommend adding a ¼ teaspoon of liquid sunflower lecithin along with the oil and mix the infusion together using a milk frother.

This will help to to emulsify all of the ingredients together.

Cannabis Coffee Made with Cannabutter

#1 – Coffee Made With Cannabutter

Cannabutter has been one of the most tried-and-true cannabis staple recipes for decades, making it a popular coffee addition.

If you’ve never put cannabutter in your coffee before, you may be thinking that it doesn’t sound too good, but don’t knock it until you’ve tried it.

Adding cannabutter to your morning coffee cup adds a richness to the flavor and texture and can be enjoyed along side any other coffee addition you like to use, like sugar or cream.

Most folks who prefer cannabis edibles as their consumption route likely already have cannabutter in the fridge or freezer.

Freezing cannabutter in an ice cube tray can be perfect for dosing out a perfect size addition to your morning cup of coffee.

If you’ve never made cannabutter before, be sure to get my full step-by-step guide here.

Putting Cannabis Coconut Oil into Cannabis Coffee

#2 – Coffee Made with Cannabis Coconut Oil

Next to cannabutter, cannabis-infused coconut oil is the second most popular cannabis infusion method.

Many people prefer cannabis coconut oil because it is naturally plant-based and vegan, and doesn’t require the milk solids to be removed after the infusion process.

In addition to traditional unrefined coconut oil, infusing MCT coconut oil is also a popular choice.

Adding cannabis-infused MCT coconut oil to your morning cup of coffee leaves you with the traditional ‘bulletproof coffee’.

This cannabis-infused bullet proof coffee is delicious, but has also been known to cause a bit of digestive distress in some individuals, so enjoy with caution!

If you’ve never made your own cannabis coconut oil or MCT coconut oil, get my complete guide here.

Cannabis Coffee Made with CBD Oil

#3 – Coffee Made with CBD Oil

A morning cup of cannabis coffee made with full-spectrum CBD oil is quickly gaining popularity!

As cooking with CBD oil gains popularity, people realize that CBD oil is an excellent addition to their morning cup of coffee and wellness routine.

Adding CBD oil to your morning cup of coffee is also likely the most accessible option for most folks, as CBD is legal in nearly every state.

If you’re brand new to using CBD oil, be sure to check out my beginners guide here.

I am also proud to offer my readers high-quality CBD products.

#4 – Coffee Made with Cannabis Tincture

A traditional cannabis tincture is an alcohol-based cannabis infusion and will blend into the coffee the best of any method described here.

Of course, this method will be strong because you’re adding both cannabis and alcohol to your morning cup of coffee.

Depending on your desired effect, that could be a good or a bad thing.

Adding cannabis tincture to coffee is similar to adding whiskey to coffee for an Irish Coffee or adding Bailey’s to coffee for an after-dinner drink.

If you want to make your own cannabis alcohol tincture at home to add to your morning cup of coffee, be sure to grab my full guide here.

Cannabis Coffee made with Cannabis Sugar

#5 – Coffee Made with Cannabis Sugar

Adding a spoonful of cannabis sugar to your morning cup of coffee may be the easiest way to make a cup of cannabis coffee.

But, it takes a little bit of work to make cannabis sugar.

Before making your own cannabis sugar, you must first make a cannabis alcohol tincture.

Once the tincture is made, you pour that over sugar to make cannabis sugar. For a full guide on how to make cannabis sugar at home, click here.

Cannabis Coffee Made with FECO

#6 – Coffee Made with Cannabis Concentrates

There are many different types of cannabis concentrates on the market today that can be used to make cannabis-infused coffee.

One of the most popular cannabis concentrates made at home is called full-extract cannabis oil, also known as FECO.

You can make your own FECO at home, or you can sometimes find it at a licensed dispensary. It may also be called RSO.

Depending on where you live, you may also have access to high-quality cannabis concentrates like distillate.

This is a highly concentrated cannabis product with minimal flavor, so cannabis consumers highly favor it.

You can find THC concentrate syringes at legal dispensaries or CBD concentrate syringes here in our shop.

#7 – Coffee Made with Leftover Cannabis Pulp

This is another one where they say don’t knock it until you try it!

Leftover cannabis pulp is the plant material left over from making cannabis butter, cannabis coconut oil, or cannabis olive oil.

While many people typically throw the leftover pulp, or ‘sludge’ out, many of our readers have reported that they save and use the leftovers in many different recipes.

The best way to add cannabis pulp leftovers to your coffee is to place the leftover plant material in a teaball and steep it in your mug. 

This is the teaball I recommend.
