If you have glaucoma - or, let's just be honest, just like to get high -the best part of waking up could be a cannabis k-cup.
Pot-infused coffee isn't a new concept, but the convenience of a k-cup is a novel approach. Uncle Ike's Pot Shop in Seattle (where recreational weed is legal) sells coffee pods called Catapult. The pods cost $10 each or you can buy a six-pack for $37. The coffee is enhanced with 10 milligrams of THC, which is responsible for the high.
The coffee/pot combo "seems to give a kick from the caffeine, but it isn't a jittery feeling because of the THC... You get a nice energetic high," manager Jennifer Lanzador told The Huffington Post.
For those just venturing into the world of weed, Mirth Provisions has a drinkable called "Legal" that it compares to "riding a cool avalanche of pure deliciousness down a tall mountain and landing in an ocean of good feelings. You'll swim off into a day of work or play filled to the brim with pure joy."
Mirth also ventured into the soda aisle with a fizzy drinkable containing THC, but state laws on refrigeration damped the excitement of its release. Those who infuse food and drink with pot have a lot of state regulations to heed. "Obviously, we will never have gummy bears or lollipops -- the [Liquor Control Board] determined they appeal to children -- but sodas, nuts, chocolates, cookies, lozenges, pretzels, snack mix, even THC pills are being sold and/or developed," Lanzador told Huffington Post. "It is a very exciting time for this industry and providing safe ways to ingest THC is a great alternative to smoking."
