Yield: 1 cup
2 cups of water (hot)
1 empty tea ball or bag
1/2 teaspoon butter (you can also use coconut oil or milk)
0.5 gram cannabis flower (adjust according to preference)
- Grind the cannabis flower until fine, but not too much. Make sure that the flower comes from the finest buds.
- Put the ground flower in a saucepan over a medium-low flame. Add butter, oil, or milk (whatever you are using). Stir and leave to simmer.
- Transfer the mixture to an empty tea ball or bag.
- Heat 2 cups of water and wait to boil. Once boiling, turn the flame to low and place the teabag in the boiling water. Leave to simmer for half an hour.
- Strain the tea, allow it to cool, and serve.
The recipe above is simple and straightforward, but there are other ways to make the tea, which you can try as you become better in the process. If you want to have another cup, don’t do it right after consuming one. It is best to wait for at least two hours, so you won’t get too much of the herb at once.
Cannabis tea’s natural flavor isn’t always tasty for everyone. It’s okay to add honey or sugar to make it sweeter. You can also add spices or other herbal teas to tweak the taste and enhance its health benefits.
Consuming the tea offers the following health effects for as long as you don’t consume too much at once:
It curbs the nausea of people suffering from migraines. It also helps relieve nausea that comes as a side effect of chemotherapy.
Drinking the tea is good for the lungs as its cannabis content acts as a bronchodilator. It’s also beneficial for people at risk of high blood pressure as it aids in opening the arteries.
The tea’s cannabinoid CBN content has anti-inflammatory properties.
The herb in the tea aids in improving your mental health and regulating emotional behavior.
The compound cannabinoids in the tea can help fight various kinds of body pains.
You’ll experience a longer-lasting relief from drinking the tea than when you inhale CBD. The effects could last up to 8 hours.
