Roa said that they had personal experience with CBD and had found they were benefitting from the cannabinoid. “Craig has been taking CBD for some time now, so he knew the effects and how it was beneficial for him,” Roa said. “And so, we saw, basically, the market demanding it, we ourselves were consumers of it as well already, so we thought it would just be a natural fit.”

“Maybe there’s something we can explore that could maybe address that,” Deahl said. “And CBD just fit like a puzzle piece. This is something that can completely counteract the negative effects of over-caffeination and bring a refreshing harmony to your morning. You have alertness and mind wakefulness, but you don’t have anxiety or jitters.”

Roa said in a press release that their new CBD cold brew delivers a new kind of caffeine boost in a convenient take-along form.

Deahl and Roa went to work in the test kitchen, trying different forms and dosages of CBD derived from hemp. They decided on a 20-milligram dose of CBD in a single-serving 8-ounce bottle. As the partners were completing their research and development late last year, news of hemp’s potential legalization in the 2018 Farm Bill encouraged their efforts. After the bill was signed by President Trump on December 20, they put the new beverage into production.

This newest product is yet another in a long line of CBD coffee drinks, especially in New York City, where the cannabinoid has become increasingly ubiquitous in coffee shops. Given that New York state only has a restrictive medical marijuana program, the nationwide hype around CBD has manifested in the Empire State primarily through hemp-derived CBD products.

The beans used for the Superlost CBD cold brew were grown by a small coffee farming co-op in Tolima, Colombia. The bottle label was designed by art director and cartoonist Levi Prewitt. Superlost commissions local artists to design its label art, which is screen printed by hand onto bags of roasted beans. To support local art and good practices in coffee production, proceeds of each batch are shared with the farmers that grew the beans and the artist that designed the label.

A Brooklyn small batch roaster has begun offering New York coffee drinkers a bottled cold brew with CBD to take the edge off the buzz. The new coffee, Superlost CBD Cold Brew from Superlost Coffee in Bushwick, is now available at more than 50 markets in Brooklyn and Manhattan and restaurants including Roberta’s Pizza.

Caffeine Underground
The Bushwick coffee shop was one of the first in New York City to serve CBD drinks. They use Flower Power Coffee, where the CBD oil is already infused into the coffee so baristas can use it to create any coffee drink whether it be an oat-milk latte or an iced coffee. 447 Central Ave., Bushwick

Gregorys Coffee
With espresso, oat milk, strawberry syrup and infused with CBD oil, Gregorys Coffee serves up one of the city’s more decadent CBD specialty coffee drinks. At $9 per cup, it’s not cheap, but the strawberry syrup helps to balance out the bitterness of the CBD oil, making it a nice intro to the world of CBD edibles. Various locations in Manhattan

Jane West’s Flwr Shop
Edible Manhattan
’s Brian Halweil is obsessed with the enhanced java from Jane West, which came highly recommended by Anna Duckworth and the staff at Miss Grass.

Mamacha
While this colorful gallery café doesn’t exactly have CBD drinks on the menu, they have a hemp drink menu (hemp is also an extract from the cannabis plant) and will sell you your own CBD tincture to add to your drinks. It’s their work-around if the NYC Health Department starts fining restaurants serving CBD food come October. 312 Bowery, NoHo

Oliver’s Coffee
You’ll find speciality CBD drinks like the Golden Turmeric CBD Latte and Iced Chai CBD Latte on the menu of this cozy shop near Chinatown, but you can also ask for CBD oil to be added to any of the drinks for an additional fee. 5 Oliver St., Chinatown

The Health Department may soon crack down on restaurants’ ability to sell CBD-infused food, but the trend shows no sign of slowing down.
