How Much Should I Add to My Coffee?
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.
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 bit of lecithin to your drink.
This will help emulsify all of the ingredients and prevent any oil from floating on top.
#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 and 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 MCT or 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 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-infused 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
A morning cup of cannabis coffee made with full-spectrum CBD oil is quickly gaining popularity!
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.
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.
#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.
