Several years ago I learned a great recipe for marijuana tea that I still use to this day when I’m sick and don’t want to inhale smoke or for when guests arrive as a nice relaxing treat.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1/2 gram marijuana buds
- 1/2 teaspoon butter
- Tea bag (any flavor)
- 1 1/2 cups water
- Optional sugar or honey
Step 1: Grind Marijuana Buds
Grind the buds with a grinder after removing any stems. If you don’t have a grinder, chop with a knife until finely minced but not completely powdered.
Step 2: Mix The Buds With Butter
Place them together in a bowl and use a spoon to mix up the buds and butter. Make sure each piece is coated with fat. You want the grounds to be completely coated but not soaked in butter; too much will inhibit the release of THC.
(If you want potent marijuana tea it’s necessary to extract the THC from the plant. Since THC is *not soluble in water alone* it requires a fatty substance to cling onto under high heat. The combination of the high heat from the hot water and the fat from the butter removes the THC from the ground buds and allows you to ingest it)
Step 3: Empty Tea Bag and Fill With Mixture
Use scissors to cut off the top of the bag then empty the contents. Spoon the ground marijuana into the bag then fold it over several times to keep the marijuana from spilling out. If you have a metal tea ball you can use that instead. Or use a coffee filter: place the marijuana in the center of the filter then gather the edges and tie it up to make a little bag.
Step 4: Bring Water to a Simmer Stove
Pour it into a small pan and place it over medium high heat so it comes to a simmer but not a boil.
Step 5: Simmer Teabag in Water for 30 Minutes
If the mixture starts to boil, reduce the heat. If the water is getting low add a little more so it doesn’t completely evaporate.
Step 6: Take Off Heat and Remove Teabag
The marijuana tea will be extremely hot so be careful and let it cool for five minutes. If you want flavored tea add another teabag of your choice during the last three minutes of simmering.
Step 7: Stir in Sugar or Honey Then Enjoy Your Marijuana Tee
As with most marijuana products consumed orally tea takes 45-60 minutes to come into full effect.
(Even with only a 1/2 gram, this tea will create a strong high)
