How To Make Marijuana Tea

Marijuana tea is an alternative way to consume marijuana that does not involve smoking. It is easy to prepare at home, using ingredients like tea, milk, and honey.

Tea also provides a different therapeutic experience than smoking. Since the active ingredients are absorbed through the digestive tract, the effects are delayed and tend to be longer-lasting. The effects of marijuana tea are felt 30-90 minutes after ingestion and can last 4-8 hours long.

When brewing marijuana tea, a fat or oil must be added in order to extract the THC. You can also make a non-psychoactive version of marijuana tea that will not get you high. Here is a step-by-step guide for three of the best marijuana tea recipes.

Additional Tips

  • If you want to prepare another volume of tea, use the same ratio of cannabis to water (e.g. 0.25 grams in 0.25 L of water).
  • Marijuana tea can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. It can be consumed cold or may be reheated before consumption.
  • One cup of tea is the recommended dose for first-time users, although half a cup is safer. The dose can be increased gradually if stronger effects are desired.
  • Marijuana tea may have an odd taste which can be improved by adding sugar, honey, mint, or other flavorings.
