Cannabis Teas

Like any other herb, marijuana may be made into a tea. Boil the water first and pour it over the marijuana. Let it steep for longer than you would for ordinary tea; approximately an hour and a half. The effects are similar to eating it. It is easy to make marijuana tea and can be combined with mint or any other herbal tea flavors to enhance it's taste.

Making tea by just boiling the leaves will not release as much psychoactive THC. Since marijuana's pigments and terpenoids – the components responsible for its flavor – are water soluble, this tea looks and smells more promising than its effect will be. However, these non-cannabinoids may also have medicinal properties, as could other water-solubles."

Even the leaves of immature plants have a slight effect. However, the leaves of mature plants have a stronger effect.

THC is only slightly soluble in boiling water. Adding either some alcohol or some oil such as Pot Butter, to the mix will help the THC dissolve. An ounce of whole milk or a half ounce of hard liquor to a cup of boiling water increases the tea's potency quite a bit. A chai-type drink, made with marijuana leaves, spices, butter and milk would dissolve even more of the THC.

Quick marijuana tea recipe:


Ingredients:

whole milk, tea bags, marijuana, water

1. Grind up 1/2 gram to a gram of marijuana buds per cup of milk.

-Add 1/2 oz of water per cup of milk.

2. Bring to a simmer for up to 25 mins to allow THC extraction. Pour into container, add a couple tea bags, and honey if you wish.

3. After about 6-8 minutes, remove tea bags. If you think that the texture or taste of the weed flakes in the marijuana tea will bother you, extract them by using a strainer, or by using a cheesecloth to separate the materials. You can also strain your weed tea in an old pair of panty hose.

NOTES:

1. The effects of weed tea can take 30-60 minutes to take effect, and when it does it may only be a mild high.

2. You may have to stir your drink occasionally just in case the mixture starts to separate. A straw will easily solve the problem

Another tea recipe

You will need:

1. Some weed (1 gram or more)
2. Measuring cup
4. Kettle or boiling pot(like you'd use for ramen noodles!)
5. Milk, Water, Sugar, and a Tea bag.
6. A coffee filter/liner.

INSTRUCTIONS

1. First mix the milk and water together. 3 parts water 2 parts milk. Pour this into your kettle (Milk is used because THC is not water soluble.)

2. Turn the kettle on and watch the level of the meter on the side carefully.
You must have your hand on the cord because once the water and milk starts to boil it will rise greatly at a fast speed. when this happens you must pull the cord out of the wall socket unless you want it overflowing all over your counter :P

3. Put the weed in the coffee pot filter and place it inside the measuring cup just sitting on the bottom of the cup.

4. Pour the boiling milk and water into the measuring cup so that the coffee filter is filled with the boiling milk water but not so much that you can't pull it out again.

5. After you let the filter with the weed in it sit for 2 minutes absorbing the THC from the weed pull it out and pour some more boiling water/milk through it, let it sit for 2 minutes.

6. Repeat the number 5 process until you have the desired amount of weed tea.

TIPS: Take a tea bag and wrip it open, pour SOME of the ground up tea mixture into the coffee pot filter with the weed to give it a nicer taste,

Weed is a little bitter, add more sugar to get rid of the bitter taste.

Let mixture sit on counter and let cool down. after a couple hours put in refridg over night. The next day take mixure and heat up in microwave add "tea" and season to taste.
