Tè alla Cannabis: i benefici, gli effetti e come farlo

Cannabis tea: the benefits, effects and how to make it

Tea is a very fashionable drink, which adapts to numerous contexts. With the right cup of tea you can improve your health, calm your nerves and warm you up, all at once. Tea is not only a relaxant and the perfect companion for a good read, but it is also therapeutic and loaded with antioxidants . It is known to have the potential to reduce the risk of heart attacks and strokes, strengthen bones, support the immune system and even aid weight loss. Plus, tea has half the caffeine of coffee, but is just as energizing.

And then there's cannabis tea . Flavor-wise it's still considered pretty new, but this cup of green goodness has a history. Ancient cultures brewed tea from the herb to treat various ailments, and it was also used during childbirth to help with nausea and pain. Today, many people still enjoy making weed tea from the comfort of their own home. There are also ready-to-use products for those just starting to explore the wonderful world of weed-infused tea.

The benefits of Herbal Tea

Weed tea has the same benefits as regular tea, plus a few more. For cannabis users, as well as those pursuing wellness, it's a natural way to get a dose of weed without causing lung damage. It's also unobtrusive, full of flavor, and will either jar you or not; you don't need to do this. Weed tea isn't bad for you. Some weed drinks have too much sugar, caffeine, and calories, while weed tea has less of the stuff you don't want, and more of the stuff you do want. And, when served right, it's calorie-free. Plus, it can also do amazing things for your body and health. These are just some of the conditions this tea could alleviate:

  • Anxiety
  • Stress
  • Depression
  • Chronic pain
  • Nausea
  • Gastrointestinal problems
  • Insomnia

Does weed tea have psychoactive effects?

Luckily for those who want a little stoned in their cup, weed tea can get you high. The effects come on faster than edibles and last a long time. This is because weed drinks, including tea, are absorbed through the liver and digestive tract. Once the effects appear, between half an hour and 90 minutes after taking it, you can feel them for 4 to 8 hours .

How to make weed tea

Of course, it's all in the preparation. THC is not water soluble, so if you want your weed tea to have any effect, decarboxylation is the most important step. Decarboxylation is a fancy word for extracting the THC from weed using heat. This is what happens every time you light up a bong.

Decarboxylation simply consists of placing the herb on a baking tray and then placing it in the oven at 110° for 60 minutes .

You also need to mix the weed with something fatty in order to properly extract the THC through decarboxylation. If you already have cannabis butter on hand ( here 's an incredible recipe!) or coconut oil , use that.

Easy weed tea

Making weed tea is simple. When you already have cannabis butter ready, that's even better. All you need is ten minutes, and you can make a simple, strong cannabis tea to get you warmed up and high.

Ingredients:

  • 1 teaspoon cannabis butter or cannabis coconut butter

  • 1 tea bag
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • Milk, sugar or other condiments of your liking (optional)

Steps:

  1. Add the cannabis butter and tea bag to a cup of your choice.
  2. Add boiling water to the cup.
  3. Let the cannabis butter dissolve and let the tea bag steep for about 3 to 5 minutes.
  4. Remove the tea bag, add your favorite toppings, and enjoy!

Forte Herbal Tea from Scratch

Don't have cannabis butter? No problem! Making strong weed tea the old fashioned way is nonsense. It just takes a little longer.

Ingredients:

  • ½ gram of grass flowers
  • ½ teaspoon soft butter
  • ½ glass of water
  • 1 tea bag (optional)
  • Milk, sugar or other condiments of your liking (optional)

Steps:

  1. Grind the flowers and set aside any stems or seeds.
  2. Add the herb flowers and soft butter to a bowl and mix carefully.
  3. Place water in a pot on the stove at medium temperature.
  4. While the water simmers, gently pour in the herb butter and let steep for 30 minutes, adding the tea bag in the last 3 to 5 minutes.
  5. Give it time to cool, pour it through a strainer to filter out the excess of the plant, add your seasonings, and drink!

Tea with grass stems

If you are a tea drinker, then you should always save the stems of the herb to make your own herb tea. They contain little to no THC, but that doesn't mean they are useless. The stems are perfect if you want to make a less strong tea.

Ingredients:

  • ¼ cup stems
  • 1 cup Half & Half
  • 3 glasses of water
  • 1 tea bag
  • Brown sugar
  • Honey

Steps:

  1. Break the stems by hand to make them easier to work with.

  3. Add the stems to the pot and boil for about 5-7 minutes, stirring often.
  4. Drain the mixture into a cup.
  5. Boil three cups of tea, but double the amount if necessary. This will help increase the flavor of dairy products.
  6. Take your favorite mug and pour half of your tea into it, then add ¼ (should be half of what you brewed) of Half & Half.
  7. Make your tea sweeter by adding seasonings of your liking and enjoy your delicious preparation with all its benefits!

Herbal Chai Tea

For a spicy milky concoction that's the bomb, there's herbal chai tea. This tea is reminiscent of the chai latte you might buy at an upscale coffee shop, but without the caffeine and stir.

  • ½ gram of crushed cannabis
  • ½ gram of butter
  • ½ glass of water
  • 1 glass of milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 bag of chai tea
  • Sugar or other seasonings of your choice (optional)

Steps:

  1. Blend the cannabis, butter, milk, and vanilla extract in a blender until they have the same consistency as a milkshake.
  2. Pour the water into a pan and boil it at a low temperature, then add the mix and stir for 30 minutes, adding more water from time to time to prevent it from evaporating and burning.
  3. Remove the pot from the heat and add a chai tea bag to steep for 3-5 minutes.
  4. Remove the tea bag and strain the tea to remove excess from the plant.
  5. Add more toppings, if you like!

Weed Tea Without Effects

No stoned weed tea gives you the benefits of THCA without getting you high. THCA is found in raw Cannabis and serves as an excellent addition to your wellness routine, because not only is it anti-inflammatory and antioxidant, but it is also a pain reliever and an anti-cancer agent, studies show .

Ingredients:

  • ½ gram of cannabis leaves, stems or flowers.
  • 4 glasses of water
  • 1 tea bag (optional)
