Coffee and Marijuana in Your K Cup

Coffee and Marijuana in Your K Cup


Coffee and Marijuana in Your K Cup By www.BuyOrganicCoffee.org Now there is a new product that you can make
with your single serve coffee maker from Keurig. A California company named Brewbudz is putting
marijuana and coffee in k cups and selling them in Nevada where recreational pot is legal.
Business Insider discusses the marijuana-infused coffee pod. This week, Brewbudz debuted a line of coffees
and teas spiked with marijuana flower and encased in single-serve, fully compostable
containers. Each pod costs about $7 and is available at select dispensaries in Nevada. Kevin Love, director of product for Brewbudz
parent company Cannabiniers, said the company wanted to crack the marijuana edibles market
with a low-calorie product that uses a socially accepted delivery mechanism. When they read
the stats on coffee consumption, Cannabiniers (whose name combines “cannabinoids” – chemical
compounds found in marijuana – and “pioneers”) knew they found a match. Nearly two-thirds
of Americans drink coffee every day. These folks are not the first to come up with
a pot and coffee k cup but what makes them unique is their totally biodegradable packaging.
The pods are made from bio-based mesh, skins of roasted coffee beans, and other organic
materials. When disposed of correctly, the pod breaks down in as little as five weeks,
according to the website. By comparison, Keurig generates billions of pieces of plastics every
year. Perhaps other k cup makers, of just coffee,
will follow this example and come up with totally biodegradable packaging. Perhaps that
would forestall the death of the k cup. We wrote recently about k cups in our article,
Does Organic Coffee in a K Cup Make Sense? There is a basic contradiction in the equation
of selling organic coffee in plastic containers that will fill up landfills and not decompose
for thousands of years! However, the more likely case is that single serving coffee
is a fad and fads run their course. So, is this the death of the k cup or simply a retrenchment
into a smaller market? Where Do K Cups Make Sense? This writer loves it when he travels and there
is a coffee maker in his hotel room. Here is a case where k cups make sense although
we would like to see biodegradable cups. Single adults do not make nor need large quantities
of coffee so biodegradable k cups make sense there also. For the family that makes coffee
for several people at once give me a pot of boiling water, a cloth filter and freshly
ground healthy organic coffee in the right quantity. But how do marijuana and coffee work together?
Live Science says this. The combination of the two will likely make
the user feel wired and tired at the same time, he said. But taking caffeine with marijuana
would not cancel out the high induced by the drug, he noted. And it would be a mistake
to think that someone could get high and then sober up, thanks to the caffeine, Krakower
said. The best approach to this product is to consider
it a way to take marijuana and not a way to enhance your coffee experience. Coffee and Marijuana in Your K Cup By www.BuyOrganicCoffee.org Now there is a new product that you can make
