How to Make Marijuana Tea

18 March 2021 | 0 comments | Posted by Rebecca Akers in Masterchefs

Weed tea preparation

For years cannabis has been seen as a taboo consumption item in many parts of the world. While countries like Holland have long been advocates of cannabis use, in recent years, the narrative has begun to change in many countries.

Now that people don't have to stay so quiet about their use of marijuana, and it is legal in much of the US and Canada, and people can share far more about the benefits and use cases. We've seen this positive attitude in cannabis drive production and use of the herb in a range of ways.

In this guide, we're looking at how to make marijuana tea, something many people are finding offers them a convenient and tasty way to consume their weed, plus it has a whole host of benefits.

How to make marijuana tea

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 gram marijuana buds
  • 1/2 teaspoon butter
  • 400ml water

Teabag or loose-leaf tea (black tea or flavoured teas are fine)

Steps for making cannabis tea

  1. First, grind your buds, remove the stems and keep them if you wish to; they can be used later.
  2. Make cannabutter by adding the ground buds to some butter and mix them, making sure they are evenly spread.
  3. In the meantime, boil water on a stovetop, and then simmer. You can then add your mixture of cannabis and butter to the water.
  4. Simmer it for about 20-30 minutes. Make sure you stir it; otherwise, you might get some burning of the buds.
  5. With a few minutes left of the brew, add a tea bag or loose-leaf tea of your choosing. Something like a flavoured peppermint tea can work well.

Strain and enjoy

As you can see, this is a straightforward recipe to enjoy. It also gives a lot of options and opportunities to experiment. Why not add some of your favourite flavours? Try infusing with cinnamon or adding some honey. These things can add flavour and sweetness, which some people find they need to combine with tea.

Benefits of marijuana tea

There are more benefits than just the fact that it tastes good and makes you feel high. Marijuana tea can improve many aspects of your life and has been shown to have medical benefits. Of course, marijuana tea is not the only way to consume cannabis, but it is a great method and an alternative to smoking.

Cannabis tea reduces chronic pain

There are several reasons why people can get medical marijuana, and one of these is the fact that it acts as a powerful pain reliever. THC-heavy strains such as cannabis Indica strains, or CBD-heavy strains, are both capable of reducing pain at the source and also dulling the brain's pain signals so that you feel it less intensely.

Relieves anxiety and depression

In numerous studies, cannabis has been shown to relieve anxiety and depression. Numerous compounds within marijuana help lessen the feelings of depression or anxiousness. Though it doesn't treat the root cause, cannabis offers relief.

Improves lung health

Though historically, people may have told you that marijuana is bad for your lungs, it seems that the opposite could be true. Of course, you don't have to smoke marijuana if you find that this irritates your lungs, and that's why methods like marijuana tea are so popular. Marijuana can improve sleep, reduce any inflammation and even reduce phlegm in your lungs.

Supports heart health

One of the main things that can contribute to heart diseases and poor heart health is inflammation. It's been proven in several studies that cannabis (specifically the CBD within) can have a positive and protective impact. The anti-inflammatory factor can reduce your chance of stroke or high blood pressure.

CBD has been proven to have a protective impact on your heart. Studies in mice have proven to be incredibly positive, and it seems that in the future, there will be more good news coming out regarding cannabis and the impact on your heart.

Cannabis tea eases symptoms of nausea

CBD helps with feelings of nausea because it interacts with your serotonin receptors. This is one of the hormones in your body that affects behaviour and mood and can also regulate other areas of your body. Though some high-THC strains of marijuana can cause nausea, many CBD-heavy strains are great for alleviating this.

Alleviates bowel problems

There are a lot of people struggling with bowel problems, either individually or as a symptom of another illness. Cannabis improves your digestion and can ease stomach pains, as well as preventing nausea and acid reflux. Numerous studies have shown that people taking medicinal marijuana are less likely to suffer from bowel problems of almost every variety.

If you are drinking marijuana tea specifically to try and help with your bowel issues, you might want to use tea that is shown to have a settling effect. For example, camomile tea has been shown to help with indigestion, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhoea. You can make your cannabis even more effective by adding additional beneficial ingredients.
