The whole bean coffee is “infused with full spectrum hemp extract,” according to Nelson’s website, and “combines the benefits of cannabis with other plants.”

The coffee promises “a natural lift, a perfect harmony of focus from the caffeine plus calm from the cannabis.”

An 8-ounce bag retails for $36 and comes with instruction on how to brew it.

CBD or cannabidiol is a marijuana extract that is marketed as containing therapeutic benefits.
