How Long Should You Steep Cannabis Tea?

Ah, cannabis tea. The perfect way to relax after a long day, or to start your day off on the right foot. But how long should you steep your tea, you may ask? It’s the great debate amongst cannabis enthusiasts. Some say five minutes is the sweet spot, while others swear by 30 minutes. Fear not, dear reader, for we’re here to settle the debate once and for all.

The Great Cannabis Tea Debate: How Long is Too Long?

Let’s start by discussing the potential risks of steeping your cannabis tea for too long. While cannabis is generally considered safe, steeping it for too long can lead to a less-than-pleasant experience. The longer the steeping time, the more THC will be released into your tea. While this may sound great at first, too much THC can lead to dizziness, anxiety, and even hallucinations. So, how long is too long? We recommend no more than 20 minutes.

Of course, the steeping time will also depend on the potency of your cannabis. If you’re using a strain with a high THC content, you may want to steep for less time to avoid any unwanted side effects. On the other hand, if you’re using a strain with a low THC content, you may need to steep for longer to get the desired effect.

To help you determine the perfect steeping time for your cannabis tea, we’ve put together a handy table. Simply check the THC content of your strain, and steep accordingly.

THC Content Steeping Time
High 10-15 minutes
Medium 15-20 minutes
Low 20-25 minutes

To Brew or Not to Brew? The Art of Steeping Cannabis Tea.

Now that we’ve covered the potential risks of steeping for too long, let’s discuss the art of steeping cannabis tea. First and foremost, it’s important to remember that cannabis tea is not like regular tea. You need to decarboxylate your cannabis before steeping it to activate the THC. This can be done by heating your cannabis in the oven at 240°F for 30-40 minutes.

Once your cannabis is decarboxylated, it’s time to start steeping. We recommend using loose leaf tea bags or a tea infuser for easy clean-up. Simply add your decarboxylated cannabis to your teapot or infuser, and pour hot water over it. Let it steep for the recommended time (see table above), and voila!

Of course, you can add other ingredients to your tea to enhance the flavor and effects. Some popular options include honey, lemon, ginger, and even other herbs like chamomile or lavender. Just be sure to keep an eye on the steeping time, as adding additional ingredients can affect the THC content of your tea.

There you have it, folks. The great debate of how long to steep your cannabis tea has been settled. Remember, the perfect steeping time will depend on the potency of your strain. Be sure to decarboxylate your cannabis before steeping, and feel free to experiment with other ingredients to find your perfect blend. Happy brewing!
