How To: Make Marijuana Tea

Irish Tea

Ireland is one of the world’s largest per capita tea consumers. The Irish like their tea strong and enjoy what we call Irish Breakfast Tea—a robust blend of black teas—all day long, typically served with lots of milk. Serves 4.

 

2 cups whole milk or half and half
2 grams kief or hash
3 cups strongly brewed Irish breakfast tea
Sugar to taste

 

Heat milk or half and half over medium low heat—do not boil! Stir in kief or hash until dissolved. Divide milk mixture between 4 large coffee mugs. Fill mugs with hot brewed tea. Sweeten to taste and serve.

How To: Make Medicated Marijuana Tea

Ingredients:
Tea
Cup
1 Teaspoon of butter
Marijuana!

 

Like other herbs, marijuana may be made into a tea. Boil the water first and pour it over the marijuana. Let it steep for longer than you would for common black tea; approximately an hour and a half.

Add 1 tsp. of marijuana or regular butter. The effects are similar to eating it. It is easy to make marijuana tea and can be combined with mint or any other herbal tea flavors to enhance it’s taste.

THC is only very slightly soluble in boiling water. Adding either some alcohol, oil, or butter to the mix will help the THC dissolve. An ounce of whole milk or a half ounce of hard liquor to a cup of boiling water increases the tea’s potency quite a bit. A chai-type drink, made with marijuana leaves, spices, butter and milk would dissolve even more of the THC.

Making tea by just boiling the leaves will not release as much psychoactive THC. Since marijuana’s pigments and terpenoids the components responsible for its flavor are water soluble, this tea looks and smells more promising than its effect will be. However, these non-cannabinoids may also have medicinal properties, as could other water-solubles.
