Kansas City-based Roasterie launches CBD-infused coffee that could bring a whole new meaning to the term “coffee pot” known as “CBD COLD BREW”. The Roasterie announced the company’s first extension of its Canned Cold Brew line, “CBD Cold Brew” in a Facebook post. This product is said to be created in partnership with CBD American Shaman and will be sold in American Shaman stores, as well as the Roasterie Factory Café on Southwest Boulevard
