I'm curious, how do you take your coffee? Do you elevate before, during, after or in your coffee?
In case you didn’t know, Americans love coffee & I love cannabis.
This journey began with a broken car and a need for a double shot of espresso! With my car out of commission and the Oklahoma Canna-fam being the best of the best -- I made mention that the ice took out my baby on one of my social media platforms and was very fortunate to make a new friend. This #SEXYSTONER was sweet enough to offer and pick me up, bring me a cup, take me to Starbucks, Dunkin, go to the coffee grocery store you name it. She was getting me a cup of joe no matter how it had to happen, she indeed understood my needs and we have been good friends ever since!
While we still lag behind our European friends in coffee consumption (the U.S. ranks 25th in coffee consumption at 9.26 lbs (4.2 kg) of coffee consumed per person per year, Finland ranks 1st at 26.45 lbs (12 kg) per person per year – according to World Atlas), the U.S. consumption has increased by an entire 2 lbs (1 kg) in the last five years, and there is no sign of that trend stopping.
Coffee, Cannabis & Conversation @ | Chae Cafe & Eatery |
This #sexystoners adventure begins at the beautiful Chae Café & Eatery, located at 7300 N. Western Ave. here in Oklahoma City, which it turns out we have all fallen in love with. We happen to meet here regularly. It's clean, spacious, kid friendly, inviting and has damn good coffee and sweets, not to mention the staff is adorable and always greets you with a smile. When you arrive you can belly up to a table inside or out the choice is yours. And I'm pleased to say both are always clean and inviting. The only gripe "I" personally have is, they don't serve sparkling water with the espresso (it's a separate purchase). Other than that, this establishment is wonderful and I strongly recommend you give it try!
Cafe Chae & Eatery has good prices and I can't wait to come back for lunch and enjoy some of their Korean comfort foods.
Mon - Tue: 9am-2pm, Wed - Fri: 9am-8pm, Sat: 10am-8pm, Sun:10am-4pm
Extra points for supporting local!

After enjoying our delicious coffees and sweets this #sexystoner rolled a fatty before we went out the door and elevated on this sunshiny day. We want to thank @shaggyroots for his beautiful #glovebutter.

Coffee & Cannabis | Research |
Research has confirmed that coffee and cannabis both affect the same parts of the human brain. Experts have found that mixing the two can prolong the effects of cannabis in an individual, providing longer pain relief and extended periods of euphoria.
Another advantage — and perhaps surprising — side effect of combining caffeine and THC is improved memory function. While coffee has a tendency to improve memory, consuming cannabis is known to do the opposite. However, a 2012 study in rats found that a combination of caffeine and THC actually worked in tandem, improving memory at a higher rate than caffeine alone.
Plus, that giddy feeling after consuming your first cup of coffee in the morning is caused by our favorite neurotransmitter: dopamine. Although it serves many functions, dopamine is commonly known as the “happiness hormone.” It is released when the body absorbs caffeine as well as when THC is consumed. Combining the two can add to the effects of dopamine, elevating mood and even reducing symptoms brought on by post-traumatic stress, ADHD, depression, and anxiety.
Despite the apparent benefits of mixing the two, individuals respond differently and should experiment with caution. Immediate or long-term side effects have not been reported, but experts say to take precautions seriously. The best advice, according to the experts, is go slow and gauge your tolerance when mixing cannabis and coffee.
