Calculating the Ideal Dosage for Your Cannabis Tea

Calculating the Ideal Dosage for Your Cannabis Tea

Cannabis tea is a great way to reap the benefits of cannabis without having to smoke it. It’s a discreet and delicious way to consume cannabis and an excellent alternative for those who want to avoid the risks of smoking. However, it’s crucial to know how much cannabis to use to avoid getting too high. In this article, we’ll guide you through the process of calculating the ideal dosage for your cannabis tea.

Brew a Perfect Cup of Pot

To make the perfect cup of cannabis tea, you will need to use the right amount of cannabis and brew it correctly. First, decide how much tea you want to make and what strength you would like it to be. A good rule of thumb is to use one gram of cannabis per liter of water for a mild tea, two grams for a medium tea, and three grams for a strong tea.

Next, you will need to decarboxylate your cannabis. Decarboxylation is a process that activates the cannabinoids in cannabis by heating it. To do this, preheat your oven to 240°F, place your cannabis on a baking tray, and bake it for 30 to 40 minutes. Once decarboxylated, grind the cannabis into small pieces and put it in a teapot.

Boil water and pour it into the teapot. Let the mixture steep for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Strain the tea through a fine-mesh sieve, and your cannabis tea is ready to drink.

Don’t Get Too High-Tea!

Calculating the right dosage of cannabis for your tea is essential to avoid getting too high. The potency of cannabis varies depending on the strain, so it’s important to know the THC content of your cannabis. A general rule of thumb is to use 10 milligrams of THC per serving. However, if you are new to cannabis or have a low tolerance, you should start with a lower dose of 2.5 to 5 milligrams.

To calculate the THC content of your cannabis tea, you will need to know the percentage of THC in your cannabis. For example, if your cannabis has 10% THC, one gram will contain 100 milligrams of THC. If you want to make a mild tea with one gram of cannabis, you will need to use 10 milligrams of THC per serving.

It’s also important to note that the effects of cannabis tea take longer to kick in than smoking or vaping. It can take up to two hours for the effects to be felt, so it’s essential to start with a low dose and wait before consuming more.

Dosage Chart:

THC % THC per gram THC per serving (10mg)
10% 100mg 1g
15% 150mg 0.67g
20% 200mg 0.5g
25% 250mg 0.4g

Calculating the ideal dosage for your cannabis tea is essential to avoid getting too high. By following the steps in this article, you can make the perfect cup of cannabis tea that is both delicious and effective. Remember to start with a low dose and wait before consuming more, and always be mindful of the potency of your cannabis. Happy brewing!
