What Happens When You Combine Coffee and Cannabis

Combining Cannabis and Coffee

One surefire way to get medical marijuana patients out of bed in the morning is the promise of pairing their cup of Morning Joe with cannabis! Mixing coffee and medical marijuana has many benefits for medical cannabis patients.

Let us tell you what happens when you combine this dynamic duo.

Coffee is, hands down, the only way some of us are able to get out of bed in the morning! Caffeine reduces drowsiness and improves our reaction time. THC has various effects on the body such as psychoactive ones and provides pain relief.

While everyone reacts to chemical components differently, generally coffee energizes drinkers, while some cannabis strains tend to relax the user.

So, what exactly happens when you combine coffee and medical marijuana?

Studies reveal that when combining cannabis with a very small amount of caffeine, the mixture can prolong the effects of cannabis. By consuming a small amount of caffeine, such as the amount found in a cup of coffee, you can actually prolong your ‘high’. This means that patients can achieve the result they seek while using less cannabis.

One thing cannabis and coffee have in common is that they both deliver ‘euphoric’ effects. Both cannabis and caffeine increase our levels of dopamine in the body. Dopamine is known as the happiness hormone, and when combining the two, the effects give the user an uplifting and euphoric boost.

If you’re looking to spice up your morning routine, or perhaps are in need of an extra boost of energy, you may consider combining cannabis and coffee! During your next visit to the dispensary, ask your budtender for a cannabis strain suggestion to wake up to!
