Here’s What Happens When Stoners Try Actual Coffee at an Amsterdam Coffee Shop

Moyee's very special taste test

Amsterdam is known for its famous "coffee shops," but coffee is not the main attraction. Amsterdam-based coffee brand Moyee hopes to change that—and make the city better known for coffee as well. But it can't avoid the pervasive influence of that other mind-altering substance entirely.

So, with help from 180 Amsterdam, it orchestrated a special taste test. Cannabis is said to heighten one's senses of taste and smell, so it had real people (not actors) try its coffee—while under the influence.

Their reactions are colorful indeed. Check out the results below.
