Bullet proof Coffee and Elite Marijuana?

MARIJUANA INFUSED COFFEE -  THERE IS MUCH MORE TO IT THAN YOU THINK

Bullet proof Coffee and Elite Marijuana?

Marijuana consumption has been going on as far as the historical record goes back and beyond.  Archaeological digs date cannabis back to 12,000 BP.  So it would figure that someone out there at some place, at some time made a coffee brew with herb a la cannabis.  No matter, cannabis infused coffee has been reinvented by California-based Brewbudz.  They've created their own process (patented) that extracts the medicinal and recreational compounds from the cannabis flower and coffee bean.
 

“Our vision was to create a revolutionary product that would deliver a medical solution to patients in a beverage that was consumed and enjoyed as part of our daily life.” - Brewbudz

 

The company will be offering caffeinated and decaffeinated beverages with 10, 25 & 50 mg cannabis portion options in the new year.  They even have a webcam to keep an eye on the brew.  They're environmentally friendly too, offering compostable pods and mesh.  Their special brewing process extracts both water and fat soluble compounds. This is essential because THC, CBD and other cannabinoids are not water soluble.  Little is it known that there are many medicinal non-water soluble compounds in coffee too.  

See the further reading section for an extraction method  and special organic ingredients to produce what is called bulletproof coffee. In the BrewBudz patented cannabis infused coffee process, they start with good organic beans, add a specific quantity of water, and brew it under turbulence.  While we're not entirely clear on how the fat soluble compounds, the terpenes, flavonoids, and cannabinoids stay in solution, BrewBudz assures us that their Ph.D. has everything under control.

By adding caffeine and other fat soluble coffee ingredients, we wonder how this affects the entourage effect?  The entourage effect was discovered forty years ago, that THC, CBD, terpenes and other cannabinoids work together in concert, for a generally much better recreational and medical experience. THC and CBD work by modulating neurotransmitters that control the release of both dopamine and serotonin.

When his team identified the first known endogenous (human-body made) cannabinoid, Mechoulam named it  anandamide which means supreme bliss in the Sanskrit language.  This coining style give insight into the feelings of the discovery group and about their voyage into the exotic world of the cannabis plant.
