Understanding Cannabis Tea: Potency and Dosage Explained

Cannabis tea is an excellent way to enjoy the therapeutic benefits of marijuana without the harmful effects of smoking. However, making the perfect cup of cannabis tea can be challenging for beginners. Getting the right potency and dosage is crucial for an enjoyable experience that doesn’t leave you feeling like a zombie. This article is a comprehensive guide to brewing a potent cup of cannabis tea and avoiding getting so high that you think you’re a unicorn.

Brewing a Potent Cup of Ganja Goodness 🍵

Brewing cannabis tea is not rocket science, but it does require some basic knowledge and skills. Below are the essential steps to brewing a potent cup of ganja goodness:

Ingredients

  • 1 gram of high-quality cannabis flower
  • 1 teaspoon of coconut oil
  • 2 cups of water
  • Tea bags or loose-leaf tea of your choice
  • Honey, lemon, or other flavorings (optional)

Instructions

  1. Grind the cannabis flower in a grinder until it resembles a coarse powder.
  2. Heat the coconut oil in a small saucepan over low heat until it melts.
  3. Add the ground cannabis to the saucepan and stir to coat it evenly with the coconut oil.
  4. Add the water to the saucepan and bring it to a boil.
  5. Reduce the heat to low and let the mixture simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  6. Strain the mixture through a cheesecloth or a fine-mesh strainer into a teapot.
  7. Add the tea bags or loose-leaf tea to the teapot and steep for 3-5 minutes.
  8. Add honey, lemon, or other flavorings to taste.

Dosage
The potency of your cannabis tea depends on the amount and quality of cannabis flower you use. Generally, one gram of cannabis flower contains about 100-150 mg of THC, the psychoactive compound in marijuana. Therefore, if you use one gram of cannabis flower in your tea, the potency will be about 50-75 mg of THC per cup. However, the actual potency can vary depending on the strain, age, and processing method of the cannabis flower. Start with a low dose of 10-20 mg of THC and wait at least 30 minutes before consuming more to avoid overconsumption.

How to Avoid Getting So High You Think You’re a Unicorn 🦄

While cannabis tea can be a fun and relaxing experience, overconsumption can lead to unwanted effects such as anxiety, paranoia, and hallucinations. Below are some tips to avoid getting so high that you think you’re a unicorn:

Start low, go slow
As mentioned earlier, start with a low dose of 10-20 mg of THC and wait at least 30 minutes before consuming more. This will allow you to gauge the potency and effects of the tea and adjust your dosage accordingly.

Know your limits
If you’re a beginner or have a low tolerance for THC, it’s best to consume cannabis tea in a safe and comfortable environment, preferably with a friend or a partner who can assist you if needed. Avoid consuming cannabis tea in public places or risky situations where you may feel overwhelmed or vulnerable.

Stay hydrated
Consuming cannabis tea can cause dry mouth and dehydration, which can exacerbate the effects of THC. Drink plenty of water before and after consuming cannabis tea to stay hydrated and flush out any toxins from your body.

Take a break
If you feel too high or uncomfortable, take a break, and rest for a while. Try some relaxation techniques such as deep breathing, meditation, or yoga to calm your mind and body. Avoid consuming more cannabis tea or any other cannabis products until you feel better.
