Drinking your weed in tea form offers the same potent and long-lasting effects as edibles, but with little-to-zero calories. Tea is also an excellent option for individuals who don’t enjoy, or want to avoid the potential risks of, smoking but still want the benefits of cannabis.

What are the effects of weed tea?

Since weed tea is basically an edible, the effects are the same as consuming the same amount of the same strain via other edible methods. It can take about 30 to 90 minutes for the full effects of weed tea’s THC to kick in, but the actual onset you can expect depends on a variety of factors, including the makeup of your endocannabinoid system and other health factors.

It’s important to dose in moderation, follow the “start low, go slow” adage, and wait at least two hours after consuming cannabis tea before ingesting any more. Also, as an edible, the THC in weed tea metabolizes in the liver, which transforms it into the much more potent and long-lasting 11-hydroxy-THC. The effects of weed tea typically last up to eight hours.

What do you need to make weed tea?

It’s simple to brew cannabis tea with a few ingredients, supplies typically lying around the house, and your favorite bud. For this recipe, you’ll need to assemble the following:

  • 1 gram of cannabis.
  • 1 tbsp of unsalted butter OR coconut oil.
  • 1 teabag, or loose-leaf tea, if preferred.
  • 4 cups of water.
  • Any ingredients you’d add to tea, such as honey or cinnamon.
  • A mug.
  • A teapot or saucepan.
  • A spoon.
  • A fine strainer, cheesecloth, or coffee filters.

How to make weed tea

To begin, grind your cannabis until it’s broken up but not completely powdered. You can also opt to chop your bud with a sharp knife. Be sure to separate all the stems and seeds from the mix, if desired.

Boil four cups of water in the teapot on the stove. Once the water boils, add the butter or coconut oil and allow it to completely dissolve. This fatty addition acts as a binder for the cannabinoids so they distribute throughout the tea.

Next add the cannabis and the teabag/loose-leaf tea. Allow to boil for 7 to 10 minutes, stirring frequently. To boost the potency, you can add additional trim, stems, or flower during this step.

After 10 minutes, the tea should be thoroughly infused. Remove from heat and remove the teabag. Now it’s time to filter out the plant matter from your tea. Using a teapot, it’s easy to secure a coffee filter around the spout with a rubber band or place the filter inside the teapot. If you used a saucepan, secure the coffee filter over the top of a mug to strain the tea. Another option is to use a tea infuser for the cannabis and/or loose tea.

Voila, you’re ready to enjoy infused weed tea. Feel free to add any milk, cinnamon, honey, or lemon as desired. Sweet additions such as honey or sugar are popular choices to mask the distinct weedy flavor. Follow your heart and taste buds and enjoy!

Other weed tea recipes

Boiling your herb in hot water isn’t the only way to brew weed tea. You can also simply place cannabis butter or cannabis oil, such as infused coconut oil or products purchased directly from a licensed dispensary, in your beverage and allow it to dissolve in the hot water. Mix infused butter or oil with a teabag of choice, allow it to steep, and enjoy it with any milk, spice, honey, or sugar you desire.

    anyways if you want to de-resinate your piece boil it in a pot of water. strain it out and save the resin and the resin water.

    proceed to smoke the resin

    and then if you are man enough drink the brown resin tea.

    i was the only man

  • Hate to break it to you, but you weren’t the only man. You were the only dumbass.
    The water was black because of all the tar that dissolved into the water, which is being absorbed into your stomach.
    Well, I guess I didn’t hate saying that.

  • I can’t imagine drinking it could be worth it. Think about it. how much would the weed required to get you that high cost? Then take that money and say, if someone offered you that much to drink the sludge, would you? And I can’t even bear the thought of the aftertaste lingering in your mouth for hours.

    Well, at least you got high anyway, haha.
