The Amount of Coffee is Directly Proportional to Weed Cravings

Pot Marijuana CannabisThis means if your intake of coffee is small, you’ll have low cravings for weed as well. A 2014 study proved this when scientists experimented with monkeys. They gave 1mg of caffeine to monkeys, and the same test subjects were also given unlimited access to marijuana. The result? The monkeys had low THC cravings. Likewise, when monkeys were supplied with 3mg of caffeine, they chose more THC. It shows that THC and caffeine have similar qualities when it comes to addiction. However, further research is needed to make a conclusion regarding this issue. Remember, these are monkeys and not people.

Coffee Doesn’t Improve Your High

A cup of coffee on a bean backgroundIn contrast to those people who firmly believe that drinking coffee while smoking weed improves their high, research doesn’t support the notion that coffee can make your state of high better. What research suggests is that the intake of coffee while consuming marijuana may allow you to smoke less while keeping your high, and that’s because of the caffeine. In other words, combining both only allows you to save more marijuana, but it doesn’t make you enjoy your “high” better. Again, you have to let the scientists do their research first. In the meantime, don’t bother yourself with the experiments.

They Both Give Users Euphoria

Sure, tons of research is still being carried out regarding the addiction part, but why not just bask in the pleasure they give? Coffee and marijuana both provide happiness to users and that’s a good thing. Although they still have differences and are not that much related, as caffeine cannot cancel out the “high” produced by marijuana, at least they’re similar when it comes to allowing users to reach a three-fold utopian place. However, we have to throw light on the idea that coffee can help you sober up after you smoke a joint; I hate to break it to you, folks, but it doesn’t help.

Conclusion

There are still so many secrets behind the combination of coffee and cannabis in the body, but what gives? It doesn’t mean you can’t start researching a little on your own, right? Just remember to experiment bit by bit and if possible, start growing your marijuana crops. Don’t worry; you don’t need a huge outdoor garden for marijuana plants, you can grow them indoors even without soil! Check out this link on how to grow cannabis hydroponically and thank me later.

brewing

Coffee is probably everyone’s favorite drink.

It doesn’t only help relieve stress with its antioxidant properties, but also helps boost your energy and manage your weight. It also doesn’t only help prevent diseases with its medicinal properties, but also helps maintain your skin and regulate your digestion.

That being said, remember these when brewing coffee at home:

Coffee type matters. However, grind process also matters.

Believe it or not, whole-beaned coffee is considered healthier than pre-ground coffee. This is because whole bean coffee stays fresh for weeks as compared to pre-ground coffee that only stays fresh for days. This is also because of the fact that coffee will apparently lose its natural properties, which keeps a person healthy and fit, when it’s pre-ground or when it’s stale; hence the need for you to also grind the whole-beaned coffee in the right way: with the right kind of grinder and with the right amount of time.

Water type matters. However, water temperature also matters.

And no, it’s not just about brewing coffee with either tap water (which is considered the riskiest) or filtered water (which is considered the safest). But yes, it’s also about brewing coffee with either hot water or cold water. You see, coffee is meant to be served hot as compared to coffee that is served cold. The reason for this is quite simple: hot temperature helps the coffee distribute its natural properties thoroughly. To do this effectively, the water’s temperature should be around 200 degrees in Fahrenheit.

Indeed.

Coffee is everyone’s favorite drink. Coffee is truly everyone’s favorite drink…

…and learning how to brew the right cup for yourself, as well as for your loved ones, only goes to show how much coffee makes everything in life better.
