An entrepreneurial coffeemaker has come up with the brilliant idea of combining Seattle’s favorite beverage with Washington state’s legal marijuana to create a new beverage he’s calling “Legal.”
“Wake up, it’s Legal,” the coffee beverage’s new label reads, according to the company website. The coffee is cold-brewed to satisfy the most die-hard coffee purist, and comes with in regular or with added milk and sugar. In addition to the coffee beverages, there are also three Legal sodas in juice-based flavors including Rainier cherry, lemon ginger, and pomegranate. Each variety is made with a different strain of marijuana to provide a slightly different effect.
"The coffee drinks give you an uplifting head high. We call it the 'wake and bake drink,'" owner Adam Stites said to My Northwest.
The marijuana coffee beverages probably won’t actually get anyone really baked, though, because according to The Braiser, Stites says he’s keeping the THC in the bottles to a comfortable 20 mg per serving.
"We want the experience to be more similar to that if you had a nice IPA or glass of wine. We don't want to pack so much THC into every one of our drinks that it's unpleasant, especially for people that are just getting into marijuana," he said.
