Cold brew coffee is typically less acidic than conventionally-brewed hot coffee.  

Weed-infused coffee pods hit the market early this year, but for coffee drinkers looking for a stronger batch, new cannabis beverage company Somatik recently partnered with Ritual Coffee to launch its first product, marijuana cold brew.

Somatik, which markets itself as a medical cannabis coffee containing 15 milligrams of THC, provides a taste that is “light-bodied and smooth with subtle notes of cherry, a hint of herbaceous flavor, and undertones of bright lemon,” while also providing a “mild euphoric effect,” according to the company website.

“Somatik has a lower dose of cannabis than you might find in other drinks, and that’s intentional,” Christopher Schroeder, founder of Somatik, told SF Weekly. “We wanted people to experience a balanced mind-body effect from the combination of caffeine and THC.”

The 8-ounce bottles of cannabis cold brew are currently available for $12 at both Harvest dispensary locations in San Francisco and the Oakland, California dispensary Magnolia Wellness.
