A Kenyan-based coffee producer has agreed to supply an American beverages company with ground berries for making bhang-laced drinks.

The trade deal between the Fair Trade coffee-registered producer will see New York-listed Puration Company (PURA) produce Cannabidiol – CBD-infused lattes for the United States and European markets.

A non-psychoactive compound that will be extracted from marijuana plants leaves, resins and flowers will be used in the CBD beverages among them non-alcoholic wine, water and kombucha to cold brew coffee.

This will see coffee farmers notice a spike in their profits PURA has said. “Today, PURA is proud to announce entering into an agreement with a Fair Trade producer of coffee in Kenya. Farmers who grow Fair Trade coffee receive a fair price and their communities and the environment benefit as well,” said a disclosure.

PURA says it has  engaged Kali-Extracts to use its patented cannabis extraction process to design the CBD infusion from ground coffee that is set for testing next month.
