How To Make Weed Tea?

How To Make Weed Tea?

Weed tea, also known as cannabis tea, is a beverage made by brewing the leaves and flowers of the cannabis plant. The active compounds in cannabis, such as THC and CBD, are extracted into the hot water during the brewing process, allowing for consumption of the plant’s medicinal and psychoactive properties. The effects of weed tea may take longer to onset compared to smoking or vaporizing cannabis, but the effects may also be more long-lasting.

Benefits of weed tea

Weed tea can provide a number of potential benefits, many of which are similar to those of smoking or vaporizing cannabis. These include:

    • Pain relief: Weed has been used for centuries to alleviate pain, and consuming it in the form of tea can provide similar relief.

    • Reducing inflammation: The compounds in cannabis, particularly CBD, have anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce inflammation throughout the body.

    • Improving sleep: Weed may help to relax the mind and body, making it easier to fall asleep and stay asleep.

    • Reducing symptoms of anxiety and depression: Weed has been shown to have a positive impact on mental health, and consuming it in the form of tea may help to reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression.

    • Enhancing appetite: Weed can stimulate appetite, which can be beneficial for people who have difficulty eating due to certain medical conditions.

It is important to note that more research is needed to fully understand the potential benefits of weed tea and it is also important to understand the potential risks and side effects associated with consuming cannabis before trying it.

Risks associated with weed tea

Consuming cannabis in the form of tea can be associated with certain risks. Some of the potential risks include:

    • Psychoactive effects: The psychoactive compound THC can cause feelings of euphoria, but it can also cause anxiety, paranoia, and other negative side effects.

    • Drowsiness: The sedative effects of cannabis can make it difficult to stay alert and focused, which can be dangerous if you need to operate heavy machinery or drive a car.

    • Interaction with other medications: Cannabis can interact with certain medications, including blood thinners, antidepressants, and other drugs, which can increase the risk of side effects or make the medications less effective.

    • Dependence and addiction: Regular use of cannabis can lead to dependence, and it can also be addictive.

    • Legal issues: In many places, cannabis is still illegal and possession, sale or use of cannabis can lead to legal issues.

It is important to consult with a healthcare professional before trying cannabis in any form, especially if you have a history of mental health conditions or are currently taking any medications.

Let’s look into how to make a simple weed tea.

How to make weed ( Simple weed tea recipe) :

weed tea


    • 1 gram of cannabis buds or shake (decarboxylated)

    • 4 cups of water

    • Sweetener of your choice (optional)

    • Milk or cream (optional)


    • A strainer, coffee filter, or cheesecloth

    • A teapot, mug, and spoon


decarboxylate weed

    • Decarboxylate your cannabis by heating it in an oven at 240°F (115°C) for 40 minutes. This activates the THC and CBD in the buds.

    • Grind the decarboxylated cannabis finely.

    • Bring the water to a boil in a pot.

    • Add the ground cannabis to the boiling water.

    • Reduce the heat to low and let the mixture simmer for 30 minutes.

    • Strain the mixture through a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth to remove the plant material.

    • If desired, sweeten with honey or sugar, and add milk or cream to taste.

    • Enjoy your cannabis-infused tea!

Add milk or lemon to your tea as you want, and add sugar to taste. To disguise the distinctive cannabis flavour, you can also choose to add a cinnamon stick or a spring of peppermint to the boiling tea.

If you have butter, oil, honey, or a cannabis tincture, you can create weed tea even more quickly and easily. Simply combine thoroughly, add your favorite sweetener, and steep the cannabis extract in hot water with a teabag of your choice before enjoying.

However, it’s not necessary to go all out to prepare a quick serving of decarboxylated buds. Here’s another recipe which is a bit more complex.


    • 1 gramme of marijuana flower (Sour Tangie or any citrus-scented strain works well)

    • Teabag of your choice, (classic English Breakfast is always good)

    • 1 tablespoon of unsalted butter or coconut oil

    • 4 cups of liquid

    • Any additional flavoring components, such as honey, milk, sugar, cinnamon, etc.

    • A fine strainer or cheesecloth

Approximately three standard-sized tea cups are produced with this recipe. One cup per person is the recommended dosage, but not two hours before driving or using machinery.


Step 1

In a medium-sized pot, bring 4 cups of water to a boil. Add the tablespoon of butter or coconut oil once it has reached a rolling boil and give it time to fully dissolve. This is how we distinguish the beneficial components from the plant matter: THC needs something fatty to attach to when heated.

Step 2:

Pour in your gram of ground marijuana and reduce the heat to a simmer in the boiling saucepan.

Step 3:

Boil this mixture for 15 minutes. It may be worthwhile to boil at the lowest temperature possible for a longer amount of time for extremely exceptional cannabis or really ardent cannabis foodies in order to retain the strain’s more complex flavors. When things heat up quickly, terpenes are the first to burn off.

Step 4:


At this point, strain out the remaining cannabis slivers. Grab a bowl or, ideally, an empty teapot because there is too much water to drain straight into your mug (unless it is very large). Put a rubber band or piece of twine around the top of the teapot or bowl if you’re using cheesecloth to cover it. The cheesecloth can always be held in place around the top by your quarantine partner, or solitary cooks can use something heavy to anchor it on all sides. Pour the boiling fluid gently and cautiously through the cheesecloth into the container of your choice. You could always just use a metal strainer, but unless you don’t mind getting green bits in your teeth, you should use a genuine strainer.

Step 5:

Place your teabag in the teapot and mix thoroughly before adding any optional ingredients, such as mint, lemon, honey, or a cinnamon stick. It will lessen the herby flavor. For about three minutes, steep.

Step 6:

Take out the teabag, give it a good swirl to fully mix the infused butter, and then pour yourself a cup.

No matter what, there will be a slight cannabis flavor, but you can balance it out by adding additional milk and sugar. Many people discover that pre-made chai has a robust enough taste to go with the herbal undertones. Be patient since your body will still digest it like an edible. It could take up to an hour and a half, depending on whether you recently ate and how quickly your body burns down food.
