Making cannabis-infused tea is a simple and enjoyable way to experience the benefits of cannabis in a soothing beverage. Here’s a basic recipe for making your own cannabis-infused tea at home. Remember to start with a small amount of cannabis and adjust according to your tolerance and desired effects.

Ingredients:

  1. 1 teaspoon of cannabis-infused coconut oil or cannabis butter (adjust based on personal tolerance)
  2. 1 tea bag (your choice of tea, such as black, green, or herbal)
  3. 1 cup of water
  4. Optional: Sweetener (honey, sugar, or agave), lemon, or other flavorings

Equipment:

  1. Small saucepan
  2. Tea infuser or tea bag
  3. Stirring utensil
  4. Mug

Instructions:

  1. Decarboxylation:
    • If you’re using raw cannabis, it’s essential to decarboxylate it to activate the THC and CBD. Preheat your oven to 240°F (115°C).
    • Grind the desired amount of cannabis, spread it evenly on a baking sheet, and bake for 30-40 minutes, stirring occasionally.
    • Allow the decarboxylated cannabis to cool before using it in your tea.
  2. Infusing Cannabis with Fat:
    • In a small saucepan, add one cup of water and bring it to a simmer.
    • Add 1 teaspoon of cannabis-infused coconut oil or cannabis butter to the simmering water.
    • Stir until the cannabis-infused oil or butter dissolves into the water. The fat is necessary to extract the cannabinoids from the cannabis.
  3. Brewing Tea:
    • Place the tea bag of your choice in the water with the dissolved cannabis-infused fat.
    • Allow the tea to steep for 5-7 minutes, or according to the recommended time for the specific tea you’re using.
    • Remove the tea bag.
  4. Flavoring (Optional):
    • Add sweeteners such as honey, sugar, or agave to taste.
    • Squeeze in a lemon or add other flavorings if desired.
  5. Straining (Optional):
    • If you prefer a smoother tea, strain out any cannabis particles by pouring the tea through a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth into your mug.
  6. Enjoy Responsibly:
    • Start with a small amount of cannabis to gauge its effects, especially if you are new to edibles.
    • Wait at least 30-60 minutes before considering another dose, as the onset of effects can be delayed with edibles.
  7. Store Any Remaining Infused Oil or Butter:
    • If you have leftover cannabis-infused coconut oil or butter, store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for future use. It can be added to various recipes for an infused twist.

Note:

  • Experiment with different strains and tea varieties to find your preferred flavor and effects.
  • Always be mindful of the potency of your cannabis infusion, and start with a low dosage.
  • Adhere to local cannabis regulations, and only prepare and consume cannabis-infused tea in areas where it is legal to do so.

With these simple instructions, you can create a comforting and customized cannabis-infused tea to enjoy at home. Remember to consume responsibly and be mindful of the potential effects.
