CBD That’s Good to the Last Drop

Capsoil’s infused coffee pods are for those who take their coffee green.




Capsoil infuses coffee pods with various vitamins and nutrients, including CBDs.

Capsoil FoodTech has announced plans to perk up the faithful office Keurig machine with a new line of coffee pods infused with powdered CBD oil.

CBD is a lipid-based, oil-soluble ingredient that doesn’t mix well with the water in coffee. Capsoil’s proprietary technology takes any oil-based compound and converts it to a self-emulsifying powder, the company said. The dry, fine powder dissolves easily in either hot or cold liquids. That breakthrough allows the company to incorporate nutrients like CBD, medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) and vitamins A, D, E and K into their pods. Capsoil claims its powder demonstrates high stability, even in hot temperatures.

“Most vitamins and antioxidants are not water-soluble, and unable to deliver the active compound from the pod to the cup. Another challenge is the stability when mixing functional ingredients with coffee, which typically involves heat,” Capsoil FoodTech scientific director Dr. Itay Shafat said.

Capsoil FoodTech is a collaboration between Las Vegas, NV-based Capsoil and Israel-based Prodalim Group, which has its production facilities in the United States.

With consumers flocking to cannabis-derived products, the company sees the inclusion of CBDs and other wellness ingredients as a way of further reinventing the competitive coffee pods market.

“Coffee is functional drink by definition. This is why it is the perfect vehicle for added functional ingredients. You get up in the morning and your first act is to drink a cup of coffee to perk you up and help you focus on your daily routine. Consumers already link coffee with functionality,” Shafat said.


In addition to CBDs, Capsoil’s self-emulsifying powders containing vitamins, oil-based antioxidants and MCT oil. The company’s formulations are also solvent- and chemical-free.

“A coffee pod is a single-use application that protects coffee from moisture and oxygen. We embrace the pods as a courier to deliver the oil-soluble ingredients’ benefits and ensure their safety until using them,” Capsoil FoodTech CEO Nir Ilani said.
