How to Make Marijuana Tea

Most think you can only enjoy cannabis if you smoke, vape, or eat it, but cannatea is a delicious alternative to these conventional methods. In this article, we look at what marijuana tea is, consider its benefits, help you figure out an optimal dose, walk you through the effects, show how to make it yourself, and recommend optimal strains.

Cannatea may just be your new favourite way to enjoy your daily dose of THC or CBD.

You may have heard of magic mushroom tea from your psychonaut friend, but have you heard of cannatea before? Smoking and vaping are fine ways of getting your dose of cannabis, but some people can’t physically handle hot smoke or vapor running through their airways.

So, if you’ve been looking for a way to enjoy weed that’ll soothe your throat rather than hurt it, marijuana tea may be a welcome addition to your routine.

The Benefits of Marijuana Tea

While you might suspect the benefits of cannabis-infused tea to simply line up with those of cannabis in general, there’s something to be said about consuming it specifically as a tea.

Relaxing Sensation

To start, if you find that enjoying weed and sipping tea both relax you, imagine the soothing sensations you’ll experience when enjoying both at the same time. Since you don’t have to worry about quickly inhaling any hot smoke or vapor, you’ll end up noticeably more content in the moment. The drink may be hot too, sure, but slow sipping and the addition of things like butter or milk should make that manageable.

You may find yourself even more relaxed if you sip a tea that’s free of caffeine, such as chamomile, peppermint, or ginger. We’d also suggest utilising an indica strain, or one including terpenes like myrcene and linalool, to enhance those effects. That might be too sleepy for some, though, so be cautious when dosing your tea with an unfamiliar strain.

Promotes Healthy Digestion

Along with helping us stay relaxed, drinking certain teas can keep our gastrointestinal tract (GI) in good working order [1] . Herbal teas, such as peppermint and ginger, are considered to be especially effective, but different people will have different experiences, and it’ll take some experimentation to figure out the perfect tea to support your internal workings.

Soothes the Throat

Most of us are used to hurting our throats when enjoying cannabis, whether we’re smoking, or, less harmfully, vaping. However, when sipping cannabis tea, you may find it actually soothes your throat [2] , rather than damages it. While the weed itself isn’t responsible for this, your throat will enjoy the (moderate) heat of the tea. Chamomile and green tea, specifically, are the ones considered most effective in this regard.
