Emprise in Paradise’s Infused Powder Beverages provide a cozy cannabis experience.

We tried their Over It Coffee and Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate that boast nano THC infusion for rapid onset. That promise was delivered on, but the trade off is a quick offset as well.

The process to steep the coffee was rather clever and fun. You pour water over the grounds through the filter bag, which you can prop up on the rim of your mug with the pop out supports. The result is an authentic cup of coffee that we treated just like our favourite morning brew, adding a little milk and sugar.

The hot chocolate mix dissolved well and was smooth to drink, though a bit watery. I would not recommend using a mug any bigger than the 12-oz. recommendation. As a vegan offering it is dairy free, which I believe accounts for the lack of creaminess you’d typically expect from a hot chocolate. It benefited from the addition of a splash of oat milk (though you could easily use any milk or dairy alternative). The flavour was not overly sweet but pleasant.

Both beverages made for a perfect winter afternoon treat and will likely be a repeat buy for a special occasion.
