Necessary Ingredients For Marijuana Infused Tea
Making marijuana-infused tea is a relatively simple process that requires only the most basic ingredients. Along with the substances and implements needed to brew a regular cup of tea, such as a tea bag, a mug, and a cup of boiling water, this recipe requires a small quantity of cannabis infused butter (sometimes referred to as cannabutter).
Patients who have never made cannabis infused butter before may need more detailed instructions, but the following refresher should serve for people with experience preparing this substance. Making cannabutter takes several hours, but the steps are relatively simple:
- Gather the ingredients, which are two sticks of butter, .5 ounces of cannabis, and two cups of water. The cannabis can be raw or ground, but it should be fresh off the plant.
- Mix the three ingredients together in a pot, heat as usual, and simmer for two to three hours. Some stirring may be necessary to prevent the cannabutter from burning.
- Allow the mixture to cool, strain it into a container, and refrigerate it overnight. This allows the butter to separate from the water.
Preparing Cannabis Infused Tea Is Easy
Once the cannabutter is ready, marijuana-infused tea can be prepared in as little as 10 minutes. The tea is brewed just like regular tea. A tea bag and one teaspoon of cannabutter should be added to a mug, and then one cup of boiling water should be poured in. The tea should not be consumed until the cannabutter has fully dissolved. If desired, marijuana-infused tea can be prepared with milk or sugar.
Although this recipe is simple, medical marijuana patients should still be careful to pay attention to dosage and appreciate the delayed onset. Cannabis may have adverse effects when it is consumed in excess, and cannabis ingested in the form of marijuana-infused tea is no exception. Patients who follow this recipe closely, however, should find that it provides a simple and effective alternative to smoking.
