Want to give your lungs a break but still get high? Say you need a soothing and calming remedy to de-stress throughout the day but can’t light up a joint or take a bong rip. Besides taking edibles or tinctures, cannabis tea is an excellent way of soaring to the moon. Not as fast-acting as directly inhaling Mary Jane, weed tea is a gradual dosing that will have you feeling good but still able to function. Learn how to make marijuana tea and you’ll soon become the sipping stoner you never knew you wanted to be until now!
There are different methods to making marijuana tea, some are quicker than others but does not necessarily mean it is the best method! Depending on the materials you have on hand to make the tea, there are a few different methods to try. The easiest way would be steeping dry cannabis flower into water, however this is less intoxicating and no one really likes this method unless you’re desperate since it tastes exactly like what it is - watered down weed, which we all know is not a good combo.
The easiest method to make marijuana tea is to infuse your tea with a cannabis tincture that has already been prepared for you. This way, you know exactly how much of a THC dosage is going into your cannabis tea and can monitor your intake. However, if you are inspired by DIY and think you can whip up some tea with a nice kick - try mixing cannabis with something fatty (like coconut oil or butter) so that you can sit back and enjoy a potent potion created by you! This process is referred to as decarboxylation, or decarbing weed which makes cannabis more potent by activating herb.
Although cannabis tea is not as fast acting as smoking weed, this can still contain a potent dose so please drink with caution. Try drinking one cup and wait an hour or two for effects to kick in before drinking another - treat this like edibles where you know not to take too much before it hits you later at once and start looking like the Spongebob edible meme.
Depending on your metabolism, the THC content of weed you have on hand, etc. - every batch of weed tea can taste slightly different. If you prefer not to have a weed-like flavor at all, you’ll need to add milk, sugar or honey to compensate for the earthly taste. If that doesn’t work, there’s still the option to grab some cool bongs for sale. But the next time you are not able to light up and still have some ganja on deck, take 20 minutes to make yourself a nice cup of tea + weed!
