How to Make Your Own CBD Coffee

how to make cbd coffee

I love coffee, and I love using CBD. Know what’s even better – putting them together!

There are some brands that sell these kinds of drinks, like these Green Roads coffees and teas, but if you have some oil sitting around and don’t want to buy another product, you can make your own at home! It first came to mind when I was visiting family over the holidays and my mom was preparing some tea, and she asked if I wanted a little honey in mine. Not just regular honey, but CBD honey. Yes, please!

I looked around the internet and have found a great recipe from Sean Markey, who is the publisher at Cannahealth, a cannabis education website. After making this myself at home, I highly recommend it! It makes a great espresso drink that is infused with CBD to give you the relief you seek, all while perking you up like your regular cup of joe in the morning.

CBD Coffee Recipe

First, let’s start off with what you’ll need to prepare the drink.


  • Espresso or coffee
  • 1 tbsp. unsweetened drinking chocolate
  • 1/2 tsp. sugar, or whatever sweetener you prefer
  • 1/4–1/2 cup creamer
  • Your preferred dose of flavored CBD oil

The recipe calls for a peppermint flavor oil, to make it a “Peppermint Chocolate Espresso”, but you can use whatever oil of your choosing. My favorites are Thought Cloud oils.


  • 1
    Prepare a double shot of espresso, then put it aside. As a substitution, you could also make a cup of strong coffee.
  • 2
    Put the sweetener and drinking chocolate together in a mug.
  • 3
    Add your CBD tincture, using the dropper, directly on top of the drinking chocolate.
  • 4
    Pour the espresso (or coffee) onto the drinking chocolate and mix it together (you can optionally add milk frother).
  • 5
    In the microwave, heat the creamer for 30 seconds. Alternatively, you could also heat it on the stovetop until is just below a boil.
  • 6
    Add the hot creamer into the mug with the espresso/chocolate mixture.
  • 7
    Blend together all the ingredients in the mug with a milk frother.

If you want to add a little extra finish, you can reserve a small amount of creamer in a microwave-safe container and blend it together with the milk frother for a little extra foam on top of your drink.


Not only does it make a delicious drink that perks you up, but you’ll also reap all the medicinal benefits of CBD!
