Coffee from Stauf’s Coffee Roasters is now available with cannabidiol at a shop near Grandview Heights.
Denver-based company Good Vibe CBD mixes Stauf’s with cannabidiol, commonly known as CBD, and distributes the blend to Firefly Apothecary, along with retailers in Colorado.
Firefly opened in April and is staffed by adults with developmental disabilities. The store wants those employees to learn the skills needed to hold a full-time job, said lead merchant Jonte Mufti.
Employees handcraft many of the store’s products, including bath bombs and body lotions, and the proceeds are used to support the people who work there.
Firefly also sells CBD products, Mufti said.
“We actually have a lot of individuals who suffer from anxiety and depression and wanted to find a natural remedy,” he said.
CBD users say the extract is calming, though research on its effects is limited.
