The Benefits of Cannabis Tea
Cannabis tea is a healthy alternative to smoking or consuming edibles. Cannabis tea can be used to medicate without the psychoactive effects of THC.

CBD dominant strains will not get you high and are non-psychoactive.
How to Make Cannabis Tea
Cannabis tea is a great way to consume cannabis without having to smoke it. It is also a great alternative for those who cannot smoke for medical reasons. Cannabis tea can be made with fresh or dried cannabis leaves, buds, or trim. It is important to know how to make cannabis tea properly so that it is effective and tastes good.
Step One: Decarboxylate Your Cannabis
The first step to making cannabis tea is to decarboxylate your cannabis. Decarboxylation is the process of heating your cannabis at a low temperature for an extended period of time in order to activate the THC. Without decarboxylation, the THC in your cannabis will not be activated and you will not feel any effects from the tea.
There are a few different ways that you can decarboxylate your cannabis. The most common way is to bake it in an oven at 240 degrees Fahrenheit for about 40 minutes. Another way is to use a dehydrator set to 115 degrees Fahrenheit for about two hours. You can also decarb your weed using a crockpot set to “low” for three hours, stirring every 30 minutes.
Whichever method you choose, make sure to grind your cannabis finely before you begin. This will help the THC to activate more evenly.
Step Two: Choose Your Tea
Cannabis tea can be made using a variety of different teas as a base. Black tea, green tea, herbal tea, chai, mate—the list goes on. It’s really up to you what kind of tea you want to use. If you’re not a big fan of the taste of cannabis, we recommend using a fruity or otherwise flavorful herbal tea to mask the taste. Mango peach green tea, for example, would be a good choice. If you want to keep it simple, blacktea is always a classic option.
Step Three: Infuse Your Tea
Now that you have your tea and cannabis, it’s time to infuse them together! For this process, you will need a stove, a pot, and some water.
First, heat up your water on the stove until it reaches a boiling point. While your water is heating up, grind your cannabis into small pieces. Once your water has reached a boiling point, add in your tea bag and let it steep for 3-5 minutes.
After 3-5 minutes, remove the tea bag from the pot. Now it’s time to add in your ground cannabis. Stir the mixture well and let it steep for another 10 minutes.
After 10 minutes have passed, it’s time to strain your tea. Pour it through a strainer or cheesecloth into another pot or bowl. And that’s it! You’ve now successfully made cannabis tea.
Cannabis tea is a flavorful and healthy way to consume cannabis. It can be made with fresh or dried cannabis leaves, flowers, or trimmings. Making cannabis tea is a simple process that requires only a few ingredients and supplies. The key to making good cannabis tea is to infuse the cannabis into the water properly. This can be done by simmering the cannabis in water for 30 minutes or by using a water-based infusion like a tincture. Cannabis tea can be enjoyed hot or cold, and it can be sweetened to taste.
