The Best Way To Make Weed Tea & Why I Drink It



Tea is tea, and weed is weed. But when you put the two together, magic happens. I'm talking about weed tea, a little-known yet highly effective method of consuming cannabis. Weed tea is basically just ground up marijuana mixed with water and boiled like regular tea leaves. That's it! But this simple concoction packs a punch: It can take anywhere from 90 minutes to several hours for your body to fully absorb THC in the bloodstream after smoking or vaping it—but ingesting it through edibles or tinctures means that your body will process the THC much more slowly. In fact, some people say that eating or drinking marijuana actually helps with anxiety because they don't feel high right away (though others disagree).


What is Weed Tea?


Weed tea is a drink made with marijuana. It is made by steeping marijuana in hot water, and it can be made with or without THC. Weed tea can also be made with or without CBD (cannabidiol), a chemical compound in cannabis that has medical benefits, but doesn't get you high like THC does.

The health benefits of weed tea are many: it helps relieve pain and inflammation; it improves sleep quality; it treats nausea caused by chemotherapy treatments; and more!


How to Make Weed Tea


You can make weed tea in a number of ways.

  • If you have loose leaf, this is the easiest way to go about it. Fill your cup with water, place some ground up weed leaves into a strainer or tea ball, and then place that in the water. Simmer for 5-10 minutes on low heat until all of the THC is dissolved into the beverage and strain out any remaining plant matter before serving.

  • If you're using pre-ground buds or cannabis oil: The same method applies here as well, but instead of using loose leaf you'll probably want to use something like a tea bag because we're working with less material here than when making regular tea with loose leaves (which requires more time). You can also try using coffee press if desired (just don't put hot liquid directly onto metal—you'll burn yourself!).


The Best Way to Brew Weed Tea


The most important thing to remember is that you do not want to over-brew your tea. You'll be able to taste the difference if this happens—it will taste more like weed and less like tea. If you're making a large batch of weed tea, it's better to pour off some liquid into a separate container and refrigerate it before serving so that everyone gets their fair share.

If you've never tried making weed tea before, here's how we do it at home:

  • Boil water in a pot on the stovetop or in an electric kettle for about 2 minutes until it boils (or bring cold water up to boiling temperature). A lot of people recommend using hot water but we've found that using boiling water works just fine! It’s also possible to use fresh mint leaves if you have those available—the stronger the mint flavor is, the stronger your experience will be! This may seem obvious but don't forget about steeping time: When mixed with cannabis oils/butters or tinctures, ground buds can be steeped for as little as 10 minutes while whole buds need closer 30–45 mins depending on desired potency


Why I Drink Weed Tea


Weed tea is a great alternative to smoking weed. It’s healthier, cheaper, and better for the environment. The THC in your body is absorbed faster when ingested through food or drink than smoked. You also don’t have to worry about burning yourself with a pipe or inhaling smoke into your lungs. And let’s not forget that you can save money by making it at home!

Drinking weed tea has benefits for both your mind and body:

  • Weed tea helps relieve stress by activating the parasympathetic nervous system (PNS). Your PNS is responsible for calming you down after getting stressed out—in other words, it makes you feel good again!

  • Drinking weed tea reduces inflammation throughout the body and aids the digestive system so that nutrients can be absorbed more efficiently into our bloodstreams thereby benefiting our overall health and well being in many ways such as helping with digestion problems like nausea caused by chemotherapy treatment while also improving appetite which could lead someone receiving chemo therapy who may not be eating much due to their illness being able to eat better so they get stronger faster because their bodies need nutrients everyday just like everyone else does regardless if they are sick or not."


Drinking weed tea is a great alternative to smoking.


If you're looking for a healthier alternative to smoking weed, or are just tired of your lungs feeling like they're on fire after getting high, then try drinking weed tea. Weed tea is a great way to medicate without smoking and it allows me to save money by using my medicine in a different way.


I make my own weed tea by grinding up an ounce of marijuana in the grinder attachment of my KitchenAid mixer and using this as the base for my concoction. It's easy to do: just fill up your teapot with hot water from either your sink or kettle (you can even use boiling water), add your ground-up marijuana along with some sugar or honey if desired (this makes it taste better), let sit for 15 minutes while you make yourself comfortable somewhere nearby, then strain out all the solids through a paper towel before drinking!


It's important to note that there are many different kinds of recipes out there—some companies sell pre-made mixes that come with everything ready-to-go; others recommend adding milk/other ingredients such as nutmeg/cinnamon/apple cider vinegar into their mixes beforehand so everything blends together nicely when mixed together finally before consumption time arrives later down road...


Conclusion


Drinking weed tea is a great alternative to smoking. It’s easy to make, and it doesn’t hurt your lungs or throat like smoking does. You can also control how much marijuana you consume by choosing how strong your weed tea should be when brewing it.
