What is Weed Tea

Weed Tea is just another forum of cannabis edibles, one of the healthiest and easiest ways to consume cannabis. There is a variety of ways to make weed tea with an endless selection of additives but there is a few core ingredients that make tea, weed tea. While you might think the core ingredients are just dry cannabis flower and water, there is actually one more crucial ingredient that turns a mucky water blend into the body soothing Weed Tea we love here at Online Dispensary Canada.

That super important ingredient is fat!

 

Without fat in your cannabis tea, you won’t get any THC infused with drink, just a murky mess waiting to be poured down the drain. THC isn’t water soluable meaning if you seep your dried cannabis flower in hot water, nothing will really happen. THC only attaches to fats such as olive oil, butter, coconut oil, and whatever you can think of the puts on extra pounds to those love handles. Adding fat to tea is thankfully what most of us do anyways our tea, but in this article we will give you a sneaky bypass that weed tea experts have grown fond of.

How long does Weed Tea Take to Kick in?

Like edibles, it can take up to 1 hour for the effects to kick in, but most users report the effects take place within 15 minutes. Unlike smoking dried cannabis flower which effects last around 2-3 hours, marijuana edibles like weed tea tend to last around 4-6 hours at a much more consistent level. While can peak when you take too much cannabis check out our how to sober up guide to sober up fast.

Benefits of Weed Tea

Unlike most cannabis edibles, weed tea isn’t full of sugar, preservatives, unhealthy fats, and sweet tooth temptations. A soothing glass of marijuana tea aids with indigestion, helps regulate health, and a proven stress reducer. All these benefits can’t all be contributed to THC, the benefits of tea have been proven over and over through centuries of use. During the process of making weed tea it’s advised to add loose leaf tea to improve taste and health benefits. Here’s a couple examples of tea you could add and the benefits associated with them:

Black Tea: The highest in caffine, black tea is often known as English breakbest Tea or the tea included in Bubble Tea. Made with fermented tea leaves, studies have shown black tea may protect from lungs from exposure to cigarette smoke. Black tea has also been shown to reduce the risk of stroke.

White Tea: One of the most uncommon teas on the list, white tea is uncured and unfermented. One study showed white tea to be the most potent tea with anticancer properties. White tea is often not in your family tea drawer and a real treat when you have it around.

Green Tea: One of the most studied drinks to date, green tea is high in EGCG (Epigallocatechin gallate). The compound found in Green tea is thought to reduce infimation, aid weight loss, and help fight hearth and brain disease. Go to your local Chinatown and enjoy the vast varieties of this delicious, healthy tea.
