Hard day? One of those in which you have not really had a moment for yourself, for your thoughts and to finally be able to catch your breath? Well, what you need is a nice break and some Cannabis.
Know that if you don’t want to, you don’t need to smoke it. There are many ways to take legal weed, such as a nice cannabis tea.
This drink is gaining more and more consensus among consumers, both for the ease with which it is possible to make a good tea at home without spending too much, and because the effects it gives are of great quality.
One thing that totally differentiates tea from other types of intake is that cannabis, being ingested and acting on the digestive system, ends up making those who use it perceive a lighter, less incisive effect but with a much longer duration. .
A good cannabis tea will allow you to relax, to finally be able to get rid of all those negative thoughts that have conditioned you during the day … It is also a great help to lead you to a deep and regenerating sleep.
Cannabis light, better inhaled or ingested?
The studies speak for themselves; inhaling light cannabis, always following a conscious and studied methodology, does not hurt like taking uncontrolled ones. In any case, combustion damages the lungs.
Ingested marijuana acts differently, since cannabinoids end up acting more on the physical aspect than on the mental one, giving those who use them more feelings of relaxation and physical abandonment .
What allows Cannabis Tea to help counteract anxiety disorders, pain from arthrosis or inflammation of various kinds is CBD, contained in high percentages in light marijuana. It is a cannabinoid that does not alter the perception of reality (unlike THC) but that relaxes and stretches the muscles.
Let’s get to the point: how do you make cannabis tea?
Legal cannabis tea recipe
We definitely need our main ingredient: light cannabis inflorescences.
You also need to know an important chemical factor: CBD can be extracted by simply boiling the buds in water, but you need to add a fatty element (we chose butter, but milk or oil is fine too) because CBD is not water-soluble but fat-soluble.
- 1 gram of cannabis inflorescences
- ½ teaspoon of butter
- 1 tea bag for the filter
- 1 liter of water
- Sugar or honey, to taste
Take the cannabis light flowers and start chopping them with your fingers ; later, if you wish, you can help yourself with a knife handle.
We separate the twigs from the tops.
What you need now is a small bowl to put the butter and cannabis into (by the way: have you read our cannabutter recipe ?) . Let the butter melt a little to allow it to completely coat our cannabis with its fats.
Stir and let it compact. When you get a result that you like you can take the tea bag or another filter of your choice and put all the contents inside.
Meanwhile, put a saucepan of water on high heat. When the water reaches a boil, you can submerge the filter in it.
Lower the heat, keep the heat low and let the filter soak for half an hour.
If the water is still too hot, it may evaporate too quickly, before the necessary time. At that point you can solve by simply adding more water.
After half an hour, let your tea cool and then enjoy it, if you wish, with honey or sugar!
Effects of Cannabis Tea
Ingested cannabis takes effect slower than inhaled cannabis.
After drinking your cannabis tea and waiting for a while, you will begin to feel much more relaxed and a sweet sense of sleepiness will make its way into you. If you are not interested in sleeping right away, know that this tea is also excellent for its digestive and diuretic properties.
