When I saw this cannabis coffee company on Instagram I had to reach out to them in hopes of trying my own brew. The brand is bright, fresh and seems to value safe dosing which is a trait in the industry that I really appreciate. On the other hand, K-Cups are one of the leading contributions to landfills and are kind of killing the planet. For that reason I was glad they included a loose tea that can cut back on the environmental waste a teensy bit since I use a metal tea ball. I’ll post that review in the coming weeks.
That being said, I popped over to the future mother-in-laws place to try this little pod out in their Keurig coffee maker so I could understand what CBD coffee really was. Cowbae and I are kind of coffee snobs. He makes his morning java in a stovetop Italian espresso machine and I use a french press, so as far as the flavor of coffee goes it’s not an artisanal brew. But don’t get me wrong, it doesn’t suck. It reminds me a lot of Folger’s if you made it in a Keurig, nothing to write home about but definitely does the job. I made the largest cup possible, so that might have something to do with it. The real shining moment for this product is the mind blowing effects.
As I drank the cup and watched Cowbae cook some lunch the music became a part of my energy, I could feel the sounds moving through me and just bobbed my head along with out thinking about it. That’s when I knew that the CBD kicked in. All of my anxiety had melted away but I was still alert and certainly awake. There was absolutely no jittery feeling that I usually get from my afternoon coffee, just mellow but vibrantly awake. As for my inflammation, it melted right away as it usually does with this magical cannabinoid in my system. I have been isolating and opening up my upper back and shoulders for a couple of months now and it’s been a sore, painful experience. But a few sips in absolutely all of the sore, yucky gunk had completely dissipated and I was left ooey gooey. These effects almost make the environmental impact disappear, almost.
All in all, I loved this amazing combination of caffeine and CBD but I cannot wait until there are fresh grounds available outside of the K-Cup option. Also thank you to Pot-O-Coffee for the samples, absolutely brilliant job.
