Coffee lovers will soon be able to combine their cuppa joe with Mary Jane for an extra morning buzz.
San Diego company Brewbudz plans to debut single-serving coffee pods that also hold cannabis. Each cup will contain 10 milligrams of the marijuana chemical THC for recreational users and up to 50 milligrams for people who need it for medical reasons, plus a jolt of “West Coast Roast” coffee so you can wake and bake.
The pods, which will cost $7 apiece, are designed to fit Keurig coffee brewers and will be completely compostable. So the company boasts on its website that the pods are therefore “good for you” and “good for the Earth.”
“It’s an opportunity to bring together two different rituals in life,” BrewBudz Vice President Jeffry Paul told Denver’s Westword magazine.
The company is due to launch sales in Nevada and Colorado in January and plans to expand to Washington, Oregon, California and Arizona by March.
The product is the latest to benefit from the increasing number of states legalizing medical and recreational use of the drug. Nearly a quarter of the U.S. population now lives in a state that has legalized marijuana.
