Almost every high-functioning and sleep-deprived adult of the 21st century, which is, let’s face it, most of us, starts their day with a nice, warm hug in a mug – the tasty and noble cup of Joe.

There’s something so ritualistic and special about drinking a cup of coffee in the morning, but many people prefer to start their morning with some hash.

Whatever the case may be, if you consume weed and caffeine simultaneously, you might be surprised to find out that the two have a wonderful combined effect.

In this article, we’ll explore the combination of marijuana and caffeine, define what it does, and help you understand how you can use this combo for all it has to offer.

What Does This Combo Bring to the Table?

When it comes to consuming both marijuana and cannabis, you’d be surprised at
how much the two complement each other. Yeah, it might seem like they counteract
each other on paper, but the chemical processes that go on in your brain give off
a “special” effect when these two powerful stimulants are combined. Below, we’ll
show you a couple of common things you can expect if you take your coffee with
a side of weed.

Euphoria extraordinaire

Many people will say that weed slows you down, and that’s everything but the truth. Weed is well known for its euphoria-inducing properties, which can turn you from a docile recluse into the life of the party.

Sure, some people might react to it differently, but that ultimately depends on the person, the high, and the type of cannabis consumed. Keeping this in mind, what else do we know that stimulates you to a euphoric state – coffee, and more precisely, caffeine.

The combination of the two can give off such a powerful kick of euphoria that you’ll be as hyped and capable as ever.

Impaired Memory

Weed isn’t exactly a study stimulant. It’s used to get you relaxed, laid back, and enjoy yourself and your time with whatever you choose to do, be it video games, a nice pizza, or a couple of friends.

While this is all fine and dandy, weed can affect your perception and memory retention, and when you consume it, you put yourself at risk of forgetfulness. The brain doesn’t retain that much information if you’re smoking, and that tends to subside once you’ve sobered up.

Sadly, caffeine only augments this negative effect, so don’t smoke weed before your coffee-fueled all-nighter or an important study session.

A Ramped Up High

While the science is a bit scarce on this one, some seem to think that caffeine consumption might increase the amount of intoxication you get from marijuana. Just be wary, as consuming cannabis in combination with caffeine might give you more than you bargained for.

A Longer High 

Caffeine affects your high in more ways than just intensity. It might even prolong the amount you feel intoxicated from THC. Again, the research is a bit scarce on this, but it might be good to try it for yourself and find out what happens.

Dosing marijuana and caffeine is just like doing anything else. There’s no universal, all-encompassing measurement that will work for everyone. Start small and build up from there, and you’ll hit the sweet spot in no time at all.

Should You Consume Caffeine and Marijuana?

Sure you should. We’re all for giving anything a try as long as it doesn’t harm you. If you feel comfortable consuming both of these simultaneously, who are we to stop you. You should pay attention to the things that can happen, as not all of them are beneficial.

Dosing is also crucial, so make sure to get that right too. With that out of the way, the two will not do you any harm as long as you’re responsible with them.

Is It Dangerous? 

No. While the only physiological effect of these two is an increased heart rate, this isn’t anything to worry about, as long as you’re healthy. However, if you have a heart issue or think you do, it’s best to stay away from this combination. Always talk to your doctor before doing these things, as a medical professional might help you find the right dose and have a better experience.

Final Thoughts

Marijuana and caffeine might sound like a match made in heaven, and as long as you know what you’re doing, it very well could be. It’s all about finesse, and if you do it right, you can get all the interesting effects of this combo with minimal possible side effects.

It’s not a dangerous combination, rather a transformative one, so if that’s your cup of tea, have at it. So sit back, relax and enjoy a twist to the usual morning cup of joe.
