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 Community members let me know I'm not alone.
Many people prefer 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.

How Much Cannabis Should I Add to My Coffee?
I can not give specific dosage measurements here because there is so much variability in the options available.
There are so many variables that will impact your product's final dose, so important to work based on your own personal tolerance.
These variables include, but are not limited to, what infusion 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 follow the golden rule of "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.
#1 - Coffee Made With Cannabutter
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 richness to the flavor and texture.
It can be enjoyed alongside any other coffee addition you like to use, like sugar or cream.
Freezing cannabutter in an ice cube tray can be perfect for dosing out a perfect size addition to your morning cup of coffee.
#2 - Coffee Made with Coconut Oil or MCT 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 oil is also a popular choice.
Adding cannabis-infused MCT oil to your morning cup of coffee leaves you with the traditional 'bulletproof coffee.'
This cannabis bulletproof coffee is delicious but has also been known to cause a bit of digestive distress in some individuals, so enjoy with caution!
#3 - Coffee Made with CBD Oil
You can also shop my selection of high-quality CBD products here.
Note: Oil Separation Will Occur
It's important to keep in mind that mixing coffee and cannabis oil or butter 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 bit of lecithin to your drink.
The lecithin and mixing process will help emulsify all of the ingredients and prevent any oil from floating on top.
#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, first decide what type of tincture you want to make.
#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.
Once the tincture is made, you pour that over sugar to make cannabis sugar.
#6 - Coffee Made with Cannabis Concentrates
Many different types of cannabis concentrates are on the market today that can be used to make cannabis-infused coffee.
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.
How to Determine The Dosing For Your Recipe
While a calculator is no replacement for lab testing, this tool has been designed to help you get a more accurate guesstimate of the potency of your cannabis infusions and extractions.
Unlike other calculators available online, this calculator aims to provide more accuracy by accounting for the losses associated with decarboxylation, infusion oils, or extraction solvents used.
Use An Infusion Machine For Your Edibles
Cannabis-infusion machines are countertop devices that do all the work for you by decarboxylating and infusing your butters, oils, and more.
