Soon, caffeine lovers will have an added kick to their favorite brewed beverage, as San Diego, California-based company Brewbudz looks to infuse its coffee pods with cannabis.

According to a Huffington Post report, recreational users will be treated to one serving that contains about 10 milligrams of the marijuana chemical THC, while people with medical reasons are recommended to take up to 50 milligrams.

“It’s an opportunity to bring together two different rituals in life,” BrewBudz Vice President Jeffry Paul described the company’s unlikely invention in the report.

The proposed concoction has already been cleverly dubbed as Wake and Bake, and each pod will reportedly cost $7 (P348).

The company also claimed that each pod is specially designed to fit Keurig coffee brewers and that the product is “good for you” and “good for the earth” since it’s completely compostable.

Recreational use of marijuana in California was only approved last month, and BrewBudz officials will focus their sales in the states of Nevada and Colorado in January.

The company also hopes to expand its operations to Washington, Oregon, California and Arizona by March.

Despite being more lenient in the use of marijuana, the US federal government still considers the drug illegal and classifies pot as a Schedule I drug alongside heroin.  Khristian Ibarrola
