How To Make Cannabis Infused Tea

1 year ago

There’s nothing more comforting than a warm cup of tea after a long day. If you’re looking to take the average cup of tea to the next level, this cannabis infused tea is for you.

 

Smoking weed isn’t everyone’s ideal. There are a number of healthier ways to consume cannabis that don’t involve inhaling smoke into your lungs. This tea infusion can be drunk alone or with some added flavor. We’ve taken the liberty of throwing in some other herbal suggestions that can add to your cannabis infused tea experience and bring on even more relaxation.

 

 

Decarboxylate First

 

In its raw form, cannabis doesn’t actually contain any THC. The famous cannabinoid is a derivative of THC-A, a naturally occurring cannabinoid found in raw cannabis. Once heat is applied to the raw plant, the THC-A is converted to THC, which is responsible for the psychoactive effect of weed.

 

For those who smoke weed, the conversion takes place while smoking, as the burning process heats up the cannabinoids. When it comes to making edibles, the conversion of THC-A to THC has to be done separately by essentially baking your buds long enough for the THC-A to THC conversion to happen.

Add Some Fats...

 

A little-known fact about cannabis is that it’s not soluble in water. If you want a truly effective cannabis infused tea, you will need to add some form of fat to your concoction. Our recipe calls for a teaspoon of butter to make sure this tea is a true cannabis infusion, however, milk would also work well!

You can also upgrade this simple cannabis infused tea recipe with other herbs known for their relaxing and healing properties. Herbs such as thyme, basil, lemongrass, and cardamom contain myrcene, a terpene that makes the blood-brain barrier more permeable and your brain more susceptible to feeling the psychoactive effects of cannabis.

 

If you’re enjoying your tea before going to bed, you can add lavender to the teabag as well. It is delicious when drunk as a herbal tea and encourages relaxation.

 

If you want to go for a full-fat cannabis experience, you can replace the 2.5 cups of water for milk and make your very own chai tea. This will give your cannabis a second chance at being dissolved in the fats. Add black tea, cardamom, black pepper, cloves, ginger, cinnamon, and anything else that you think belongs in a chai tea bag!

 

Enjoy a moment to yourself with this deliciously simple cannabis infused tea recipe!
