High Tea: A Newbie’s Guide to Cannabis Potency and Dosage

Potency 101: Understanding THC and CBD

Before we talk about dosage, let’s take a quick look at what makes cannabis tea potent in the first place. The two most well-known compounds in cannabis are THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol). THC is the psychoactive compound that gives you the "high" feeling, while CBD has more medicinal properties and doesn’t get you high. The potency of cannabis tea depends on the ratio of THC to CBD, as well as the amount of cannabis used.

A Beginner’s Guide to Dosage

When it comes to cannabis tea dosage, it’s important to start low and go slow. Unlike smoking, which hits you quickly, cannabis tea takes longer to take effect (usually around an hour or two). Start with a small amount (around 5-10mg of THC) and wait for the effects to kick in before having more. Remember that everyone’s tolerance is different, so what works for your friend might not work for you. Keep a journal of how much you drink and how you feel, so you can adjust accordingly.

DIY Cannabis Tea: Tips and Tricks

Now that you know the basics of potency and dosage, let’s talk about how to make cannabis tea at home. There are a few different methods, but the most common way is to make a cannabis-infused milk or cream that you can add to your tea. Here’s a quick recipe:

  1. Grind up your cannabis (around 0.5-1 gram per serving)
  2. Heat up some milk or cream in a pot (around 1 cup per serving)
  3. Add your cannabis and let it simmer on low heat for 30-60 minutes, stirring occasionally
  4. Strain the mixture through a cheesecloth or fine-mesh strainer
  5. Add your infused milk to your tea and enjoy!

Remember that this is just a general guideline, and your tolerance and experience level may vary. If you’re new to cannabis, start with a small amount and work your way up.

Factors that Affect Potency

There are a few different factors that can affect the potency of your cannabis tea. Firstly, the strain of cannabis you use will have a big impact on the THC and CBD content. Sativa strains are generally more uplifting and energizing, while Indica strains are more relaxing and sedative. Secondly, the temperature and steeping time of your tea can also affect potency. Higher temperatures and longer steeping times will result in a stronger tea.

Safety Tips for Newbies

Cannabis tea can be a safe and enjoyable way to consume cannabis, but it’s important to be aware of the risks. Firstly, never drive or operate heavy machinery after consuming cannabis. Secondly, be aware of the potential side effects, such as dry mouth, red eyes, and increased heart rate. Finally, always start with a low dose and wait for the effects to kick in before having more. If you’re unsure about anything, consult with a medical professional.

And there you have it, folks – a newbie’s guide to cannabis tea potency and dosage. Remember to start low and go slow, and experiment to find your perfect dosage. Whether you’re sipping on green for medicinal or recreational purposes, cannabis tea is a tasty and relaxing way to enjoy the benefits of this wonderful plant. Happy brewing!
