Coffee and Cannabis paired together are a match made in heaven. And when the two combine in one beverage, the results are magically delicious.
Known affectionately as a hippie speedball, the effects of Cannabis and caffeine are really quite lovely. The coffee picks you up, the weed slows you down, and the mind and body meet in the middle for a balanced state of bliss. While the traditional method of consumption involves smoking weed and drinking coffee, the good folks at SoL have infused the weed right into the java for a delicious way to catch a buzz.
Cold brew coffee is popular for many reasons, including lower acidity and higher caffeine content than traditional brews. Plus, it’s served cold – making it easy to enjoy during the daytime without going through the trouble of making a fresh pot of liquid happiness. There’s 50mg of THC in this eight ounce bottle, so sensitive users should be aware that drinking the whole thing will deliver a super-duper high (which we can confirm).
First sips are lightly bitter, with a sweet vanilla finish and a slightly weedy aftertaste. The Cannabis complements the brew, which immediately begins delivering an uplifting coffee buzz while the THC slowly metabolizes in the body. By the time finished the whole bottle, our body was vibrating with anticipation of the high to come. Within the first hour the Cannabis was kicking in and while our energy level stayed high from the coffee, we were also quite stoned.
The 50mg of THC lasted us an entire day, long after the caffeine had worn off – but that was perfect – as it kept us high and pain-free into the evening. A perfect treat for a single-use or great to take in smaller doses for a little pick-me-up, this infused cold brew is a perfect fall treat to help speedball the day away.
