How to prepare cannabis coffee

Cannabis coffee is a beloved beverage among enthusiasts of both plants, seamlessly combining two favorite pleasures: coffee and marijuana. This drink has gained popularity in recent years, leading to the emergence of numerous cannabis coffee recipes. Below, we present some of the easiest ones to prepare.

Considerations for brewing cannabis coffee

While making cannabis coffee is relatively straightforward, it involves additional steps compared to preparing a regular cup of coffee. Furthermore, most recipes require creating cannabutter or oil before adding it to the coffee.

In fact, this is because marijuana is fat-soluble, and butter or oil acts as a carrier for the cannabinoids and terpenes found in the plant. Consequently, once marijuana is infused into the butter or oil, it can be added to coffee to create a beverage that is both stimulating and relaxing.

Cannabis coffee combines the stimulating effects of coffee with the relaxing and therapeutic effects of cannabis. To prepare cannabis coffee, consider the following:

Cannabis selection

When preparing cannabis coffee, it’s crucial to choose the right cannabis strain. Strains with high THC content are ideal for those seeking a psychoactive effect, while strains with high cannabidiol (CBD) content are preferable for therapeutic effects without the psychoactive experience.

Coffee type

While cannabis coffee can be made with any type of coffee—ground, instant, or capsule—the coffee type chosen will impact the flavor and texture of the final drink.

Before adding cannabis to coffee, the decarboxylation process is essential; it involves heating marijuana to activate cannabinoids and convert THCA into THC or CBDA into CBD. This step is crucial for achieving the desired effects of cannabis.

How to prepare cannabis coffee step-by-step

Recipes for cannabis coffee vary in complexity and taste, ranging from simple blends of coffee and cannabis-infused butter to more elaborate drinks with ingredients like milk, honey, and spices. There are two straightforward recipes to choose from based on individual preferences and time constraints:

Cannabis-infused latte


  • One liter of whole milk (for sufficient fat content to dissolve cannabis).
  • 5 grams of ground marijuana.
  • Coffee.


  • Prepare marijuana-infused milk if not already available.
  • Strain the milk to remove any leaf residues.
  • Make coffee as usual, incorporating cannabis-infused milk.
  • Add sugar or sweetener to taste.
  • Store any leftovers in a clean glass jar.

Cannabis butter coffee


  • 250 grams of butter or 250 ml of oil.
  • 50 grams of ground marijuana.
  • Water and coffee.

Cannabis Coffee Recipe Steps:

  • Prepare cannabis-infused butter if not already available. If prepared and refrigerated, it can be easily separated and added to coffee.
  • Make coffee as usual and add a couple of tablespoons of cannabis-infused butter or oil, then add sugar.

Useful tips

Moreover, it’s crucial to consider dosing when preparing cannabis coffee. To begin, start with a small amount of cannabis and increase gradually if necessary. Furthermore, some recipes may also require adding cannabis extracts to boost the THC content of the beverage. 

Additionally, it’s important to be aware that the effect of cannabis in coffee may take longer to appear and last longer than when using cannabis through other methods. This effect can potentially endure between 6 to 8 hours, depending on the type of coffee consumed.

What effects does marijuana coffee have?

The effects of cannabis coffee largely depend on the cannabis strain used. However, initial studies indicate that it may mitigate the negative effects of caffeine-induced nervousness. There are two main types of effects:

THC-infused coffee effects

  • Increased euphoria and energy.
  • Enhanced creativity.
  • Tension relief.
  • Improved mood.

CBD cannabis coffee effects

  • Diminished caffeine effects.
  • Promotion of relaxation.
  • Assistance in enhancing concentration.
  • Body and mind relaxation.
