Marijuana news from contributing authors and staff writers on the latest in marijuana and medical marijuana
While nothing can take the place of traditional wake-n-bakes, this new cannabis roasted coffee - which can be purchased worldwide - gives cannacadets another reason to rise in the morning.
This from Eater.com:
A Los Angeles-based coffee company has figured out a way to sell marijuana-infused coffee all around the world regardless of state or country laws.. According to Fast Company, Kian Abedini's Compelling & Rich is now selling "herb conditioned" (in which the herb is marijuana) Ethiopian Yirgacheffe coffee beans. While the beans smell exactly like the green stuff, they won't actually get anyone high because they don't contain any THC.
Abedini tells LA Weekly that he makes the coffee by "essentially hot-boxing the roast room," when he infuses the green coffee beans with marijuana. However, the product isn't, er, medicated because the THC is burned off in the roasting process. Instead it just tastes and smells like cannabis. It was a lawyer who advised Abedini to label the bags at "herb-conditioned" coffee, instead of writing marijuana on the bags. While it might not get people high, the product — which can be purchased online — is in high demand. Abedini says his company's server has crashed in the past from excited customers.
A bit pricey at a $18 per 10oz bag, it's stll worth a try. Those of us looking for the real thing, however, are still going to have to make the trip to Washington and look for Fairwinds Manufacturing products; or Colorado and check out Mad Hatter Coffee and Tea Company.
