Wake up to new marijuana-infused K-cups

By Oscar Pascual |

It is now possible to properly wake up and bake with cannabis coffee.

Cannabis-infused coffee is rapidly gaining popularity in several states with legalized recreational or medical marijuana, reports Yahoo Finance.

Startups like House of Jane in California are at the forefront of the emerging cannabis coffee market, offering single-use K-cups of pot infusion that are compatible with any model of the hugely popular Keurig coffee maker machines.

House of Jane sells four different K-cups: medium roast, dark roast, mocha café and decaf. The coffee pods are available in dozens of California dispensaries and will expand to Nevada once medical marijuana stores open.

“We wanted to set up something that didn’t have the stigma of smoking a joint, smoking a bong or taking a dab,” co-founder Jill Amen said in an interview with the Silicon Valley Business Magazine. “Because there are a lot of people like you, me or any other professional who would rather give medication this way rather than take a prescription drug. We felt this would be a great delivery system for someone who didn’t want the stigma, but wanted the benefits of a well-calibrated, cannabis-infused product.

The company also plans to release an infused version of Starbucks’ Frappucino this summer.

Even pharmacies from the monolithic coffee company’s house are jumping into the pot coffee market. Uncle Ike’s Pot Shop, located in Seattle, sells plastic pods of infused coffee called Catapult, which contain 10 mg of THC in each cup — an amount that has become the standard serving size for infused edibles.

“I liken it to a Red Bull and vodka,” Uncle Ike’s sales manager, Jennifer Lanzador, told me. Yahoo. “I had more energy, but I still had the relaxation you get from cannabis.”

Despite the K-cup containers being notoriously bad for the environment, taking advantage of their popularity is a good thing, according to Emily Paxhia, co-founder of Poseidon Asset Management, a California asset manager focused on marijuana-related investments. .

“The more cannabis can be consumed in forms known to a wider population, the more interesting it will become for a mass market,” Paxhia said. Yahoo.
