The cannabis industry continues to see all sorts of innovation in products. Daily Camera reporter Shay Castle highlighted two Colorado companies that have launched coffee products infused with cannabidiol (CBD) from hemp, catering to the increased awareness of the potential health benefits of the cannabinoid. In both cases, the companies are pursuing distribution channels that extend beyond dispensaries. Steep Fuze, founded by Devin Jamroz, is selling whole beans, while Native Jack, a nitrogen Thai style coffee made by Farma Labs with organic coffee and infused with nitrogen gas and blended with hemp oils.
Steep Fuze products, which range from 1/4 pound ($25) to 1 pound ($75) that can be purchased online or picked up at Greenhouse Hydroponics or High Society in Longmont, and the company will be expanding its distribution. Each pound of coffee contains 450mg of CBD. Jamroz founded the company after developing a habit of drinking coffee following his morning CBD oil consumption to combat the taste.
Farma Labs owner Jason Walsh has gotten Native Jack into grocery stores, including Alfalfa’s Market. The product is also available online for $11 for a single can or $8 per can in a six-pack (and includes shipping). Each can contains 15mg of CBD.
