Waking up to a refreshing morning coffee is always a nice start to the day. Now you can infuse your coffee with CBD to make it even better! This article will teach you how to make CBD coffee, how to calculate the potency of it, and where to find the ingredients needed to make the recipe.
CBD products are expensive, especially the more niche products like formulated CBD coffee mixes. This makes it hard for people to enjoy them without worrying about the cost. For this reason, we wanted to share our CBD coffee recipe and show everyone how they can make it themselves. There are two main benefits of making the infused coffee yourself. The first benefit is the coffee becomes a lot more affordable. The second benefit is the recipe allows you to control the potency to fit your preference.
We recommend calculating the potency of the infused coffee prior to making it. At the bottom of the article, you will find a potency calculator. Adjust the potency calculator until the coffee contains the amount of CBD that you want!

CBD Coffee Dosage Guide
We always recommend that you measure the potency of your edibles, prior to making them. This gives you the option to adjust the recipe until the dosage fits your preferences. To calculate the potency of your infused coffee, you need to know the amount of CBD isolate that is being added to it.
To find out how potent the infused coffee is, measure the amount of CBD isolate used in the infusion. The package the CBD comes in should have instructions on how to measure the dosages. We found the easiest way to measure the CBD isolate is by using a digital scale. This method is a lot more accurate and we can scale out any dosage we need. CBD is measured in milligrams (mg), so if the scale reads 0.1g (grams) that is equivalent to 100mg.
If you need a scale to measure the CBD isolate for the infusion, this is the scale we recommend: here is a link to the scale we use which can be purchased on Amazon!
The potency calculator below can help you find a dosage that suits your preferences. We recommend that you adjust and play around with the calculator prior to making the recipe. This will show you the amount of CBD isolate needed for the dosage you prefer.
Once you know the amount of CBD isolate you need to use, you’re ready to make the infused recipe!
Where to Purchase CBD Coffee
Another option for this recipe is to just buy premade CBD coffee! This is the more expensive option but saves you a lot of time. You can purchase CBD single serve K-cups or just ground CBD coffee. Here is the company that we have been using:
