Simplifying Cannabis Tea: A Beginner’s Guide to Brewing

Ah, cannabis tea. The perfect drink for those who want to get high and stay hydrated at the same time. But let’s face it, brewing cannabis tea can be a bit intimidating for beginners. With so many strains and infusion methods to choose from, it’s hard to know where to start. That’s why we’re here to help. In this beginner’s guide to brewing cannabis tea, we’ll simplify the process and make it easy for you to enjoy a cup of soothing, THC-infused goodness.

High Tea: Simplifying Cannabis Infusions

Before we get into the nitty-gritty of brewing cannabis tea, let’s talk about infusions. An infusion is simply a method of extracting the active compounds from the cannabis plant and infusing them into a liquid. There are many ways to infuse cannabis, including using oils, butter, or tinctures. However, for this guide, we’ll be focusing on infusing cannabis into tea.

When it comes to infusing cannabis, there are two main types of compounds you need to be aware of: THC and CBD. THC is the psychoactive compound that gives you that classic "high" feeling, while CBD is non-psychoactive and is known for its calming and pain-relieving properties. Depending on the strain of cannabis you use, the ratio of THC to CBD can vary. It’s important to keep this in mind when choosing your strain and deciding how much to use in your tea.

Brewing Buddies: A Beginner’s Guide to Cannabis Tea

Now, onto the good stuff: brewing cannabis tea. Here’s a simple recipe to get you started:

Ingredients:

  • 1 gram of cannabis (strain of your choice)
  • 1 tea bag (flavor of your choice)
  • 1 tablespoon of butter or coconut oil
  • 1 cup of water

Directions:

  1. Grind your cannabis into small pieces.
  2. In a small saucepan, bring the water to a boil.
  3. Add the cannabis and butter/coconut oil to the boiling water and stir.
  4. Reduce the heat to low and let the mixture simmer for 30 minutes.
  5. Remove from heat and strain the mixture through a cheesecloth or fine-mesh sieve.
  6. Pour the infused liquid over your tea bag and let steep for 5-10 minutes.
  7. Remove the tea bag and enjoy your cannabis-infused tea!

A few things to note:

  • Be sure to decarboxylate your cannabis before grinding it. This involves heating it in the oven at a low temperature to activate the THC.
  • The amount of cannabis you use will depend on your tolerance and the potency of the strain. Start with a small amount (around 0.5 grams) and work your way up from there.
  • Don’t forget to add butter or coconut oil to your tea. THC is fat-soluble, meaning it needs to bind to a fat in order to be absorbed by your body.

Tips for Success

  • Choose a strain with a high CBD content if you’re looking for a more relaxing, pain-relieving experience.
  • If you don’t like the taste of cannabis, try adding honey or lemon to your tea to mask the flavor.
  • Don’t overdo it! Cannabis tea can take longer to kick in than smoking or vaping, so start with a small amount and wait at least 30 minutes before drinking more.

And there you have it, folks! A simple, beginner-friendly guide to brewing cannabis tea. Remember, always consume responsibly and in moderation. Happy brewing!
