Feel Very, Very Good After Sipping These CBD Drinks in Portland

Where to find CBD lattes, smoothies, and cocktails for a very mellow way to spend your day

View as Map

While many countries (and states) still imprison their citizens for carrying cannabis, weed has almost lost its novelty in Portland. Your parents are now growing Sensei Skunk in your garage. You can get your favorite Portland chocolate bar as an edible. And several cafes have begun serving lattes, smoothies, and cocktails laced with CBD, also known as cannabidiol.

CBD is a marijuana compound that has little to no psychoactive properties — basically, you can use CBD and not feel stoned. CBD is often used as a pain reliever or anti-anxiety aid, but many people who use CBD do because it’s relaxing. That’s why Portland’s restaurant community has started adding droplets of cannabidiol oil into your morning coffee or green drink: It’s a very mellow way to start your day. Tons of restaurants serve CBD sodas from Bend-based Ablis, but this map focuses on cafes and restaurants serving CBD in house-made beverages. Try out the trend at one of these cafes, bars, and restaurants serving cannabidiol-spiked drinks, maybe paired with a muffin or a burger. As always, this list is not ranked, but rather organized geographically.

Johanna Ware’s playful Pan-Asian restaurant, lined with tchotchkes and goofy figurines, will add a 25 mg splash of CBD to any drink for an extra $3. For a vacation in a glass, add it to The Rum, with Plantation rum, coconut, pineapple tepache, and nutmeg.

La Luna Cafe

This verdant, pseudo-subterranean cafe off Sandy can add a touch of CBD to its smoothies, from the healthy kale-filled green drinks to the tropical acai or coconut milk numbers. CBD works particularly well in the Beach Front, which comes with mango, coconut cream, and Pok Pok’s pineapple som drinking vinegar.

The mid-century-modern-themed cafe and (soon-to-be) bar at the Jupiter Hotel Next serves a CBD-laced latte made with Proud Mary coffee. The cafe plans to launch a set of CBD sodas, as well.

Grön Cafe

Grön Cafe serves as the drop-in cafe for GrönCBD, a company that specializes in CBD chocolate. The chocolate truffles, drinks, and sipping chocolate all come with non-cannabis, non-hemp CBD, with a resounding focus on craft chocolate-making. Take home a jar of CBD chocolate sauce from the dark, sophisticated cafe.

This super-casual hot dog menagerie off Alberta makes a CBD frozen margarita with prickly pear, easy to drink on hot days on the patio laden with colorfully painted picnic tables. Though, don’t be surprised if you see the spot switch up the recipe; as the menu reads, “Donnie changes the menu whenever he wants, ya dig.”

Blackheart

The new punk bar on Belmont serves a smattering of Southern-fried breakfast fare, and its cocktail menu includes a drink called the CBDB, a sort of marij-mosa with Ablis cranberry and blood orange CBD soda, topped off with a grapefruit wine spritzer.

Coalition Brewing

Coalition made a big splash with its Two Flowers IPA, a CBD-infused West Coast IPA. You can spot Two Flowers at bars and taphouses around town — River Pig Saloon and EastBurn Public House, for instance — but you can return to the spot where the magic happened for a beer on its new, hip patio.

This health-centric vegetarian cafe adds a 33 mg CBD shot to any drink for $3, including the Stumblebee smoothie, with peanut butter, cacao nibs, cocoa powder, coffee, and banana. Its sister restaurants, Prasad and Prasad East, offer a similar deal with a location west of the river.
