Why You Will Love This Guide

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

Many members told me they prefer to medicate with edibles rather than smoking or vaping, leading us to this delicious cannabis coffee recipe.

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

Thankfully, there are many ways to make an amazing cup of weed coffee, all of which complement the coffee and creamer you already use.

Because there is no one right way to make a cup of cannabis coffee, I will share my seven favorite methods with several different infusion options so you can pick according to your preferences.

Cannabis Coffee Made with Cannabutter

#1 – Cannabis Butter

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

This is my personal favorite way to make cannabis coffee, and it is one of the easiest ways to infuse your favorite coffee drinks. 

If you’ve never put cannabis-infused butter in your coffee before, you might think it doesn’t sound too appetizing, but don’t knock it until you’ve tried it.

Adding cannabutter to your morning brew adds richness to the flavor and texture and tt can be enjoyed alongside any other ingredients you like to use, like sugar or cream

If want to make your own cannabutter at home, be sure to get my crockpot guide or my Instant pot guide here.

If you want to skip the hard work, you can purchase my Bliss Cannabutter and have it shipped directly to your door!

Each teaspoon contains 12.5mg of THC and 12.5 mg of CBD.

The combination of CBD and THC make for a mellow experience while allowing you to enjoy the good stuff.

Weary about consuming too much first thing in the morning? No worries, you only need to add a small dose to a cup of hot coffee to begin reaping the benefits.

Putting Cannabis Coconut Oil into Cannabis Coffee

#2 – Cannabis Oil

Next to cannabutter, adding cannabis oil is another great way to make a super easy infused recipe. 

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

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.’ 

Cannabis bulletproof coffee is delicious but has also been known to cause some digestive distress in some individuals, so enjoy with caution.

If you’ve never made your own, get the guide to make your cannabis coconut oil or MCT oil here

Or you can skip the prep time and all of the hard work and shop with me and choose your desired oil option, ranging from THC, CBD, CBG or CBN.

Cannabis Coffee Made with CBD Oil

Note: Oil Separation Will Occur

It’s important to keep in mind that mixing coffee and 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. 

It’s a common mistake to think you’ve done something wrong, but don’t worry, this is harmless, depending on your taste and texture preferences. 

If you do not like the oil separation, I recommend adding a bit of lecithin to your drink.

Adding a ¼ teaspoon of liquid sunflower lecithin with the oil and mixing the infusion with a handheld milk frother will help solve this issue.

The lecithin and mixing process will help emulsify all ingredients and prevent oil from floating on top.

Mixing Cannabis Coffee with Milk Frother

#3 – Bliss Beverage Booster

While the oil and butter are good for hot coffee, they simply do not mix well into cold options, like iced coffee or cold brew coffee.

If you want to infuse any type of coffee, hot or cold, that’s where my Bliss Beverage Booster comes in!

This water-soluble beverage enhancer provides 3mg of THC and 3mg of CBD per pump, making dosing easy for best results. 

You can purchase this liquid drink aid solution to make cannabis-infused beverages like coffee at home – without any of the hard work.

Simply pump, mix with a good stir, and enjoy your favorite drink with the peace of mind of knowing the exact dosage.

This cannabis cooking oil made with THC+CBD will take all of the guesswork out of cooking with cannabis, allowing you to infuse any recipe.

First time using cannabis? Prefer just CBD products? I also have a CBD Beverage Booster available which makes it easy to control how much CBD you add. This product does not include the psychoactive ingredient THC, meaning you won’t experience any intoxicating effects. 

Cannabis Tinctures

A traditional cannabis tincture made with high-proof alcohol and will blend into the coffee better than any method described here.

When the alcohol is mixed with a hot drink, the heat helps to evaporate some of the alcohol, leaving behind a much more pleasant end product.

If you want to make your own alcohol tincture at home, you can try the traditional Green Dragon or a Golden Dragon recipe.

While the Green Dragon is more potent per lab tests, the QWET Golden Dragon has a more mild taste. It is your choice which option you want to use.
If you prefer no alcohol, you can evaporate the alcohol from a tincture, leaving behind full-extract cannabis oil (FECO), sometimes called Rick Simpson Oil (RSO). 

Just note that the final product from a THC tincture can be very strong, as you are concentrating the cannabinoid THC

This extra strength product means you only need to use a tiny bit to get the effects you’re looking for, so dose accordingly.

Alternatively, adding a lot of cannabis tincture to coffee can be similar to adding whiskey to coffee for an Irish Coffee or adding Bailey’s to coffee for an after-dinner drink.

Cannabis Coffee made with Cannabis Sugar

#5 – 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.

It takes a little bit of work to make cannabis sugar, you must first make a cannabis tincture. Once the tincture is made, you pour that over sugar to make cannabis sugar

Once the sugar is made, it is a shelf-stable option. You could even use this to spice up your favorite drink from a local coffee shop.

#6 – Cannabis Milk

If you are a milk or cream lover, you will love infusing your coffee with cannabis-infused milk or cream

Not only can you use it as-is, but it can be used as the base to make many other infused creations like coffee creamer or infused coconut milk.

If you’ve never infused milk or cream before, you can get complete instructions here

#7 – Cannabis Oil Powder

Are you looking for a new cannabis infusion method to make tasty edibles that can kick in quickly in just 15-20 minutes? 

Then look no further than learning how to make cannabis oil powder, sometimes called THC powder, quickly at home. 

Made with just two simple ingredients in just 10 minutes, this powder can be added to your morning cup of coffee without affecting the taste, smell, or flavor.

Cannabis Coffee Made with FECO

#8 – Cannabis Concentrates

Many cannabis concentrates are on the market today that can be used to make cannabis-infused coffee.

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

You can make FECO at home or 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 highly concentrated cannabis product has minimal flavor, so cannabis consumers highly favor it.

You can find THC concentrate syringes at legal dispensaries. 

Cannabis Coffee in Mug

#9 – Leftover Cannabis Pulp

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

Leftover cannabis pulp is the plant matter 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 saving and using 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 tea ball and steep it in your mug.

How Much Cannabis Should You Add?

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

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 of your infusion of choice and work your way up from there.
