What these strains have in common
Most of these coffee-friendly strains of cannabis are Sativas (or Sativa-dominant hybrids.) Additionally, the strains mentioned above contain high amounts of terpenes like Limonene. Terpenes found in Sativas provide consumers with more energy and clarity, per research. Combining coffee and Sativa-dominant strains (theoretically) has a chance to invoke the Entourage Effect. Most working-class stoners that enjoy coffee will tell you they will take whatever boost they can get!
