How to make the most powerful and effective CBD tea
Weed tea has long been used as a tool to sooth common conditions like inflammation, nausea and pain, but unfortunately, cannabis is known for its THC content, which is psychoactive, resulting in many people who might benefit from a treatment, to turning it down. Not everyone can risk a reduced level of motor function or delayed reaction time, and for those that can’t, CBD products like edibles or tea can be the perfect solution.
The best part about this CBD weed tea recipe, is that it can be made using regular cannabis that is high in CBD, hemp flowers that are rich in the element, or by using pure and unadulterated CBD oil as a base of infusion, but the best and easiest to manage method by far is CBD oil.
Now, if you are unfamiliar with how to make CBD oil, or do not have access to a reliable vendor of this kind of product, then the next best option is pure fresh buds from either hemp or cannabis. Just remember, that using bud adds the extra step of decarboxylation which must be performed before the brewing to effectively convert and release the therapeutic effects of CBD into your steaming hot cup of tea.
How to decarboxylate bud flowers for edibles
A lot of consumers assume that THC is the only element that requires activation to be effective, but CBD also needs that extra push. To decarboxylate your cannabis you will need a few tools, some patients and an oven.
- 1 gram of hemp or cannabis flower
- Baking sheet
- Weed grinder
- Parchment paper
Preheat an oven to 325°F.
Grind up the herb using a grinder, then line the baking sheet with parchment paper.
Sprinkle the grind across the middle of the lined baking pan.
Bake the cannabis/hemp in the oven for 35 minutes to decarboxylate.
CBD Tea recipe
Edibles are a treat, but this weed tea beats most recipes out there, with how fast it is to put together. The best part is that you can personalize the flavor and keep things interesting by switching up the type of tea bags used, which can help to keep the effects of this CBD tea fun and enjoyable.
- 1 teaspoon of CBD oil (or 1 gram of decarboxylated flowers)
- 1 tea bag (any flavor)
- 1 mug
- ½ cup of boiling hot water
- 1 small teaspoon
- Flavor additives
If you are using buds then slice open a teabag and fill it with the grind, so that it can steep in the water as it boiled to release the THC.
Fill a small pot with water and bring it to a rolling boil.
Pour the boiling hot water over the tea bag and then add in the cannabis oil (if applicable).
If you used bud grind, then gently stir the tea bag for a couple of minutes after it’s been poured before adding any flavorings like sugar, milk, honey or cream.
Remove the tea bag from the mug, and gently press, to release the delightful aromas and smells of your favorite tea.
Your CBD tea is now ready to serve and is best enjoyed while hot.

How To Prepare Hemp Tea
Hemp tea is becoming increasingly popular as a refreshing and easy method of taking cannabidiol (CBD). CBD is one of the most beneficial cannabinoids found in the hemp plant. Hemp tea is a good option if you don’t like other methods of taking CBD health supplements.
What is hemp tea?
Hemp tea has been in use for centuries in many parts of the world. In ancient India, it was used to make a refreshing welcome brew for guests. Hemp tea is available in both powder form and as teabags in the UK. Although there are many types of hemp tea, the best products are made from dried hemp flowers.
Hemp tea contains CBD and traces of other beneficial cannabinoids. It is made from hemp that has a CBD concentration of about 2%. In appearance, it is similar to green tea. The only difference is that dried parts of the hemp plant are used instead of tea leaves.
The THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) content in these products is less than 0.2%.
THC is psychoactive and is mainly responsible for the intoxicating effects of marijuana. However, the trace THC content in hemp tea causes no intoxicating effects. Hemp tea, like any other commercially available CBD product, is a health supplement.
The Benefits Of Hemp Tea
Apart from CBD and other cannabinoids, hemp tea also contains flavonoids: apigenin, luteolin, orientin, quercetin, kaempferol and vitexin. These flavonoids are found in a number of commonly used vegetables, fruits and other plant products. Both CBD and the flavonoids present in hemp are antioxidants.
Drinking CBD hemp tea is beneficial to health. It has a calming effect and helps improve the health of the immune system. CBD also improves the health of the ECS, the body’s natural cannabinoid system. CBD hemp tea is a healthy and tasty drink for the entire family.
Preparing Hemp Tea
Hemp tea is prepared just like green tea, but needs some amount of added fat. CBD, in its natural form, is not very water soluble. A little bit of fat helps bind the CBD and ensures that you get the maximum benefit. A dash of milk, coconut oil or a small amount of butter will do the job nicely. Coconut oil also reduces the bitterness of the beverage.
To make hemp tea:
1. Place a teaspoon of hemp tea or a teabag in a cup. If you prefer your tea with milk, you can add a little milk to the cup. If you are not adding milk, you should add half a teaspoon of coconut oil or unsalted butter according to your preference. If you are using butter, soften it in the microwave before adding it.
2. Pour hot water.
3. Allow it to infuse for two to five minutes to obtain the desired strength. The tea will turn greenish as it steeps.
4. Squeeze the tea bag and remove it from the cup. If you are using tea powder, you have to strain the mixture. Tea bags are more convenient.
5. Hemp tea tastes good as it is, but you can add sugar or lemon if needed. Your tea is now ready.
There are different qualities of hemp tea. Organic and hand-produced hemp tea products made from naturally dried flowers of hemp plants are the best. They are superior to products produced using other parts of the plant or a mixture of various parts of the plant. Drink hemp tea to improve and maintain your health. It’s a tasty and refreshing health supplement that is easy to prepare and drink.
