Understanding Potency: A Detailed Guide to Cannabis Tea Strength

Cannabis tea is a popular way of consuming cannabis without smoking it. However, some believe that it is just a weak cup of tea with no real potency. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Cannabis tea can be incredibly potent, but it requires some knowledge to brew a cup with the desired strength. In this guide, we’ll debunk some myths about cannabis tea and teach you how to make a cup that can either make you sizzle or keep you cozy.

Busting the Myths: Cannabis Tea is not Just a Weak Cuppa Joe

Myth #1: Cannabis Tea is not Potent

Many believe that cannabis tea is not potent because it is brewed with water instead of alcohol or oil. However, this is not true. The potency of cannabis tea depends on the potency of the cannabis used and the brewing method. If brewed correctly, cannabis tea can be as potent as any other cannabis-infused product.

Myth #2: All the Cannabinoids are Destroyed by Heat

Another myth about cannabis tea is that all the cannabinoids are destroyed by heat. While it is true that some of the cannabinoids are destroyed by heat, particularly if the tea is boiled, there are ways to preserve the cannabinoids while still brewing a potent cup of cannabis tea. We’ll discuss these methods later in the guide.

Myth #3: Cannabis Tea is Only for Medicinal Purposes

While cannabis tea is often used for medicinal purposes, it can also be used recreationally. Cannabis tea can be a great way to relax and unwind after a long day, or to enhance a social gathering. Just like any other cannabis product, it can also produce psychoactive effects, so it’s important to know your limits and start with a low dose.

Understanding Potency: Decarboxylation and Cannabinoid Extraction

Before brewing cannabis tea, it’s important to understand the process of decarboxylation and cannabinoid extraction.
