You can make weed tea, also known as cannabis tea, in two different ways — either with the buds of the cannabis plant or with the leaves and stems of the marijuana plant. The former is stronger and slightly more intensive, while the latter is a milder tea that is particularly beneficial in getting good sleep. While marijuana or weed remains illegal in many states, its extensive list of health benefits including its inhibitory effects on the body makes it popular worldwide.
It is advised that you check your country’s laws regarding marijuana usage before making this tea. Having said that, let’s take a look at the weed tea recipe now.

Release your stress with this relaxing and soothing brew!
Grind the marijuana buds into fine pieces. Then add the ground buds to 1/2 a tsp of butter and mix it well in a bowl.
Continue to stir the butter and marijuana together, until you see all of the marijuana coated with a thin layer of butter.
In a medium pot, bring some water to a simmer and gently spoon in the marijuana butter mixture. Scrape the sides of the butter/bud bowl to get all the ground pieces of marijuana.
Keep the water to a simmer and stir the mixture gently for about 30 minutes while the tea brews.
Strain the mixture after allowing it to cool for a few minutes. Add honey or sugar for taste, and enjoy the infusion!
Weed Leaf/Stem Tea (Mild)
Grind the weed stems in a grinder to extract more THC from them. For the uninitiated, THC is the chemical compound present in marijuana, which enables it to lower anxiety and relax the body and mind.
Add half and half in a pan and bring it to a boil. It is recommended not to use water to boil these stems, as THC is only soluble in oils.
Now add the ground stems and bring it to a boil. Keep stirring for almost 5-7 minutes.
Next, strain the resulting mixture into a teacup. Add honey or sugar, if needed, and enjoy the soothing concoction of mild marijuana tea!
It is important to be mindful of the amount of marijuana you are adding to your tea, as very high or very low levels of it can either have serious health implications or no effect at all.
