I got this request to post about how to make marijuana tea a few months ago, so here’s the recipe. This may be a good way for people who take medicinal marijuana to get the benefits of THC without the carcinogenic effects of smoking. Please note, I haven’t tried this, but after some research this is is what I think would be some of the best methods to brew.
You can use leftover sticks, seeds, stems and leaves that you would not smoke for any of the following brews or use enough weed to make a joint (about a gram). See what works for you. In the article I link below, a man from Ontario who helped his mother with Alzheimer’s with marijuana tea gave her about 3 grams.
As THC bonds to fat, all these recipes have a fat, milk, butter or chocolate, in them to help the body absorb THC and it’s effects.
- Plain Marijuana Tea – Use your “leftovers” or a gram of weed and grind it well into as tiny pieces as possible. Place all the contents into a tea ball and then boiling hot water for about 10 minutes. You can add black teas, green teas, or rooibos to this tea. Try different things and see what you like the taste of. Add hemp milk to help the THC bond. Other vegan substitutes are almond milk, oat milk and any type of nut milk.
- Marijuana Tea w. Butter - This is a style of tea that is prepared in a similar way to Nepalese Yak Butter Tea. To make marijuana butter tea in a nutshell, you need a cup of hot boiling black tea, and a tablespoon of marijuana butter. To make it Nepalese style, add a dash of salt and cream to your liking.
- Marijuana Tea w. Chocolate Powder – For those who like to make marijuana brownies, this would be the same idea but in a tea form. Use plain marijuana tea as a base and add a tablespoon of chocolate powder and drink.
Click here to read the article about Brian who helped his mother with Alzheimer’s with marijuana tea. Below is a quote from the article:
Once he settled on the proper dosage, Bain said they administered the medication for six weeks on and six weeks off for the first six or seven months. “We decided the on times were better than the off times. There were no negative results,” he said, adding that taken in tea form, there were none of the negative ramifications involved with smoking. “So then, we administered as required. We certainly didn’t give it to her just for the sake of giving it to her.”
Taken in tea form, it would take the cannabis about 30 minutes to take effect. “She would become more pleasant, less aggressive. The pacing, fidgeting, the agitation left or subsided,” he said.
Sorry I haven’t been posting recently, I had to find a home for an abused dog. I’m happy to say he’s now with an amazing family!
