Decoding Decarboxylation for Cannabis Tea

Are you a cannabis lover who also happens to enjoy a nice cup of tea? Well, you’re in luck because the two can actually go hand in hand! That’s right, cannabis tea is a thing, and it’s a great way to enjoy the benefits of cannabis without having to smoke it. But, if you’re going to make cannabis tea, you need to know about decarboxylation. Don’t worry, it may sound like a mouthful, but it’s actually quite simple. So, let’s decode decarboxylation for cannabis tea!

Tea Time: Decarboxylation Demystified

Decarboxylation is a chemical process that occurs when you heat cannabis. It’s the process of removing a carboxyl group from a molecule, which makes it more bioavailable and therefore more effective. When you smoke cannabis, the heat from the flame naturally decarboxylates the cannabinoids, which is why you feel the effects so quickly. But, when you’re making cannabis tea, you need to decarboxylate the cannabis before you can infuse it into the tea.

The good news is, decarboxylation is easy to do at home. All you need is some cannabis, an oven, and some parchment paper. Simply preheat your oven to 240°F (116°C), spread your cannabis out on the parchment paper, and bake it for 30-40 minutes. This will activate the THC and other cannabinoids, making them more potent and bioavailable. Once your cannabis is decarboxylated, you can infuse it into your tea and enjoy all the benefits of cannabis in a warm, soothing cup of tea.

Now that you know how to decarboxylate your cannabis, it’s time to make some tea! There are a few different methods for infusing cannabis into tea, but the most common is to steep it in hot water with a fat source, such as coconut oil or butter. This helps to extract the cannabinoids from the cannabis and makes them more bioavailable. Here’s a simple recipe to get you started:
