Weed tea has numerous health benefits, from easing chronic pain, reducing anxiety, improving heart and lung health to decreasing the symptoms of nausea.

These might seem like your run-of-the-mill benefits of cannabis but consuming weed in a tea can be significantly better for you than smoking it. 

Weed tea is just like any other edible

However, the slight difference is that it is a liquid.

Weed tea is a soothing drink that helps deliver cannabinoids like THC and CBD to your body. 

Before we go into the recipes, be mindful that consuming too much THC can make your whole experience terrible, so make sure you understand your dosage before you start.

Recommendations for drinking weed tea

There are a few things you must know to make weed tea:

  • You will not feel strong THC effects if you make weed tea by pouring boiling water over dry cannabis buds. On the other hand, decarbed cannabis gives a strong intoxicating effect.
  • The most effective way to help your body absorb cannabinoids is to add fat molecules to your cannabis tea. You can add coconut milk or cream as a fatty substance.
  • Deciding the dose of cannabis depends upon the process of decarboxylation, the infusion process, and the potency of the initial material used. We all react differently to cannabis edibles because we all have different digestive systems.

Here is a complete step-by-step guide with simple recipes for making weed tea. 

You can easily make this tea through cannabis flowers in different ways anytime and anywhere you want by following these simple cannabis tea recipes.
