Did you know 517 million cups of coffee are consumed in America per day? It shows the love for this beverage that people in the United States have. Not only do they love the classic coffee, but they also like to experiment with different flavors and potencies. 

One of the most popular coffees famous among coffee and marijuana enthusiasts is weed-infused coffee. Often referred to as “hippie speedball,” the weed coffee can be the perfect way to start your morning, which helps you keep calm and relaxed throughout the day. 

The combination of caffeine and THC can offer a unique and enjoyable experience that is worth trying at least once. 

If you want to try weed-infused coffee, you are at the right place! 

Decarboxylate Your Cannabis Before Making Coffee 

Before you infuse cannabis into your coffee, you need to activate the THC by decarboxylating it. This process involves heating your cannabis at a low temperature. It allows THCA (a non-psychoactive cannabinoid) to convert into THC (a psychoactive cannabinoid). 

Here is how you can decarboxylate your cannabis flower

  1. Preheat your oven to 240°F.
  2. Spread your cannabis flower evenly on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  3. Place the baking sheet in the oven for 30-40 minutes
  4. Check every 10 minutes to make sure it doesn’t burn.
  5. When the cannabis is slightly brown and aromatic, remove it from the oven and let it cool.

Classic Weed Coffee 

How to Make Weed Coffee

A classic weed coffee will help you wake up in the morning without giving you jitters. This coffee will help you feel calm and relaxed while making you feel fresh in the morning. 


To make a classic weed coffee, you will need the following: 

  • 2 tsp Ground Coffee
  • 1 gram of Decarboxylated Cannabis 
  • 1 tbsp Coconut Oil 
  • 8 ounces of Milk or Creamer
  • Sweetener (Optional) 


With these easy steps, you can make weed coffee every morning: 

Step #1: Make Cannabis Oil 

Grind your decarboxylated cannabis into small pieces and allow it to infuse in melted coconut oil. If you live in a colder region, you can heat the coconut oil in a double boiler and allow the cannabis to diffuse completely into the oil. 

Once the coconut oil changes into a yellowish color, strain it thoroughly to eliminate chunky cannabis bits. 

Step #2: Make Espresso Shot 

Next, make an espresso shot using ground coffee. If you have an espresso machine, you can see them make a perfect shot. However, if you don’t have it, use a manual french press to make 1 to 1.5 ounces of coffee. 

You can also use instant coffee to save time. It also gives the same taste and effect without utilizing time. 

Step #3: Add Creamer and Cannabis

If you want to add milk or creamer to your coffee, now is the time. You can use dairy or nondairy milk for this purpose. If you prefer using a creamer in your coffee, heat it for 20 seconds in the microwave and add it to your coffee. 

Then, add one tablespoon of cannabis-infused oil to your coffee and mix thoroughly. It will also add a nice nutty flavor to your morning drink. 

Step #4: Enjoy Your Coffee 

Now it’s time to sit back, relax, and enjoy the unique combination of caffeine and THC. It will allow you to feel awake without feeling anxious. 

The effects of weed coffee can take up to an hour to kick in. So, do not add an extra amount of cannabis if you don’t see immediate effects.

Vanilla Flavored Weed Iced Latte 

If you are a cold coffee fan, then a flavored weed-iced latte is the best option for you. It is a flavorful treat to help you feel awake while satisfying your sweet tooth. 


To make a flavored weed iced latte, you will need the following: 

  • 2 tsp Ground Coffee
  • 1 gram of Decarboxylated Cannabis 
  • 1 tbsp Coconut Oil 
  • 1 tbsp Vanilla Essence 
  • 16 ounces of Milk or Creamer
  • ½ cup Ice
  • Whipped Cream (Optional)
  • Sweetener (Optional) 


Here is how you can make a flavored weed ice latte in a few easy steps: 

Step #1: Make Cannabis Oil 

Grind your decarboxylated cannabis using a coffee grinder or food factory. Add the ground cannabis into heated coconut oil and allow it to infuse. It will change the color of coconut oil into a dull yellowish hue. 

Strain the cannabis-infused coconut oil using a cheesecloth or fine mesh. Make sure no chunky cannabis particles are left inside the oil.

Step #2: Make Espresso Shot 

Make two espresso shots using an espresso machine to make a full serving of an iced latte. You can also use a french press or cold brew method if you don’t have the machine. 

You need 3 to 4 ounces of espresso to make your vanilla latte. At this stage, you can add vanilla flavoring to the coffee. 

Step #3: Whip Your Creamer 

Next, whip your milk creamer to make it frothy. It will give you a nice creamy yet foamy texture like the one you get at the cafes. Add one tablespoon of cannabis-infused oil to the coffee and whip it with the creamer. 

This way, the cannabis will become entirely infused with milk or creamer. 

Step #4: Garnish Your Latte 

Lastly, garnish your latte with whipped cream. You can also use vanilla-flavored whipped cream if you like the sweet flavor. You can also add the sweetener to the latte before topping it off with whipped cream. 

Step #5: Enjoy Your Latte 

Once you are done, enjoy your vanilla-flavored weed iced latte with your favorite snacks. Make sure to start with a small amount of cannabis to gauge its effect on you. 


You can make delicious weed coffee at home by following these easy steps. Don’t shy away from experiencing more flavors and styles of coffee. Once you find your favorite type of weed coffee, you will definitely swear by it. 

Make sure to store your cannabis stash in a cool and dry place to preserve its potency. It can last for months, so you can use it to make delectable coffee each morning.
