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

1 Teaspoon of butter


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.

Marijuana Tea – Cannabis Kitchen

Making marijuana tea seems like the most obvious thing in the world. It’s a plant so why not just set a pot to boil and get high. The problem is, the active ingredients in marijuana, the ones that get you high, don’t release well in water. You could brew a whole gram in a cup and there wouldn’t be any real affect. THC releases and bonds much much better with fats, that’s why edibles are made with marijuana butter or oil.

Making tea with butter and/or oil sounds gross, and it often is. Fortunately there’s a great alternative, milk. Milk has the fats necessary to extract the THC from marijuana and it tastes great with tea. What’s great about the recipe we have is that you can use any kind of nut milk as a substitute, because they also contain fats. This is a great recipe for stoners and vegan stoners 🙂

1 gram of finely ground marijuana or hash (adjust for potency)
1 cup of milk (or nut milk i.e. almond milk)
2 cups of water
Your choice of tea
Combine the milk and marijuana in small saucepan.
Bring to a boil. Lower heat. Simmer for 15 minutes.
Attempt to reduce to 3/4 cups.
Strain milk, through cheesecloth or strainer.
Bring the water to a boil.
Add milk (quantity depends on taste and potency).
And Brew your choice of tea.
Flavor and Enjoy!!
