Marijuana tea is an excellent way of enjoying weed while also experiencing the comfort and refreshing elements that a good cup of tea has to give. The tea is relaxing and soothing as well as an easy way of consuming weed as it warms you up.
Drinking marijuana tea gives a high effect similar to cannabis edibles, which is slower but lasts longer. This is because the cannabinoids that are drunk and eaten are metabolized in a different pathway as compared to smoking and inhaling.
You are now probably wondering how you should make marijuana tea. Making weed tea is an easy process but requires a bit of time and patience.
There are a few types of marijuana tea that you can prepare. While weed or marijuana remains illegal in many states, weed has a vast list of health benefits, including its inhibitory effects on the body making it famous throughout the world.
You should check your country's laws regarding the use of weed before making this tea.
Separate the seeds and the stems if needs be and then grind the marijuana buds using a grinder or chop them up with a sharp knife until they are finely chopped but not to the point of turning to powder.
Mix the buds with butter by placing them in a bowl and using a spoon to mix the buds and butter.
Ensure that the bud’s ground are fully coated with butter but not to the extent of soaking as that might inhibit THC release. This step is necessary for extracting THC from the plant so that you make a potent marijuana tea. As THC is insoluble in water, it needs a fatty substance to bind onto under high heat. The presence of butterfat and high temperatures from the hot water extracts the THC from the ground buds enabling you to ingest it with the tea.
Empty the contents of the teabag by cutting off its top using a pair of scissors.
Use a spoon to fill the marijuana butter mixture into the bag and fold it to avoid the marijuana butter mixture from spilling out. You can also use a metal tea ball or a coffee filter, which you will tie up into a bag instead of a teabag.
Put the water into a pan and put it on heat to simmer.
Place the teabag containing the marijuana butter mixture into the water and allow it to simmer for 30 minutes.
If the mixture starts to boil, reduce the heat. If the level of water is getting lower, add some more to ensure that it does not evaporate completely.
Take the water off the heat and remove the teabag.
The weed tea will be very hot, and hence you should be cautious and allow it to cool for about five minutes.
If you want to flavor it with a teabag of your choice, you should place it in the water during the last five minutes of simmering.
Put the tea in a cup, stir in some honey or sugar, and enjoy your drink.
Similar to most of the oral cannabis products, the tea takes about forty-five minutes to give the full effects. This marijuana tea creates a strong high by drinking only half gram.
Similar to the weed teas above, grind or finely chop the marijuana buds.
Cut off the tea bag, empty its content, and fill it with the ground marijuana.
Fold it several times to prevent marijuana from spilling out.
Put the marijuana tea bag into a coffee cup and add a second teabag with the herbal tea bag flavor of your choice.
Boil a cup of water and pour the water in the cup with the tea bags. Let the tea steep for a few minutes and then remove the tea bags.
The longer the tea steeps, the deeper the tea flavor. Stir in some honey or sugar and enjoy the cup of marijuana tea. However, though this weed tea has a pleasant herbal flavor, it does not produce a high as THC is not extracted using a fat. You should hence opt for an alternative method if you want a potential marijuana tea.
