So who else out there starts their day off with a tall, thick mug of delicious, creamy coffee – and a precisely rolled sativa?
I know that there are plenty of folks in my industry out there that start off the day with precisely the same ritual, but many people I know personally can’t or won’t until a certain period of the day. For me it’s the perfect kick to start off my day. After I’ve had a few sips I head into my office and roll up a nice little joint to start off. Usually about a half gram of a fruity sativa is the perfect eye opener.
The Coffee Kick & Sativa Rush
Usually about half way through the joint – it starts to feel like a nice fuzzy warm blanket was wrapped around my brain – by this point the coffee has kicked into gear and is coursing through my blood doubling down on the waking effects of the sativa. It started off as an easy way to make work a little bit more fun. As I continued though I discovered that I was remaining focused for longer periods of monotonous work. I was able to work more efficiently and creatively on tasks that encouraged or needed it, and the work days went by faster. Without one or the other I noticed I couldn’t get as ‘into’ my work. Of course I could still handle my workload – but I simply didn’t enjoy it as much. Despite the “lazy stoner” stereotype – my output was typically better when I was blazed – as confirmed by multiple bosses who’d probably be pissed if they knew they were praising me for getting stoned.
I’ve noticed a few recipies around the web for *actual* Cannabis Coffee but I haven’t yet bothered to try it out – the closest I came was dissolving some THC distillate into some coconut oil and making up my own version of bulletproof coffee. Actually processing cannabis into edibles always seemed like such a hassle to me, mostly I’ve found that decarbed concentrates are what I’m willing to work with – but distillate is hands down the easiest and tastiest way to go. Just be sure you have some kind of fat in your Cannabis coffee – the THC hitches a ride on the fat and may not be properly processed and just run right through you if you keep it black.
Like a great many duos – Beer & Nachos, Peanut Butter & Chocolate – Cannabis & Coffee are two things that just compliment one another perfectly.
