Thus, its characteristics are similar to weed edibles with respect to onset time, potency, cannabinoid conversion, psychoactive effects, and so forth. Depending on the way it is prepared, making a batch of cannabis tea may be less time-consuming and less potent with respect to the psychoactive effects in comparison to today’s weed edibles.
However, the most important fact here is that weed tea can have similar benefits. You can use our recipes to make your own cannabis tea and cure your thirst. Follow our recipes to know how to make it quickly so you can enjoy the experience for the first time alongside celebrating its historically acclaimed benefits.
How to make cannabis tea?
There are two commonly followed methods of preparing weed tea. Weed tea is often consumed to cure sleep-related issues or for its pain-relieving properties.
The two ways are as follows:
- Use finely ground buds of cannabis and diffuse them by a tea steeper in the consumer’s choice of hot or cold water.
- Alternatively, you can also strain the decarboxylated cannabis by using coconut oil or butter. The result can later be infused into your tea.
Using grounded buds of cannabis and a tea steeper
Making a lovely cup of cannabis tea from a batch of finely ground buds is the method of preparation to be chosen if you are only looking forward to tasting the weed edibles on a psychoactive level. You need to go for this method if you want to enjoy light soothing effects only.
The method is quite simple. All you need is at least 0.5 grams of cannabis finely grounded along with 1.5 cups of water, some additional oil, and your favorite spices. When your cannabis is grounded to the consistency of a joint, mix it in a half teaspoon of oil and let it sit in boiling water for at least 20 to 30 minutes. You can also add additional spices and toppings of your choice.
Based on how long the weed tea has been boiling for, you might want to top the tea with some more water. You may want to carry out the above step as some of the tea might have evaporated. The tea can be best enjoyed hot. Thus, do not delay further and consume it immediately after it is ready.
