The History of Cannabis Teas

Delving into the rich history of cannabis tea, you’ll find that this therapeutic brew has been used in medicinal practices for thousands of years. Originating in Asia, it quickly spread globally due to its potent effects and easy preparation. The cultural significance of this plant and its infusions cannot be underestimated. Ancient civilizations revered it for its medicinal properties, incorporating it into their daily lives and traditions.

Uncovering ancient recipes provides a glimpse into the intricate role cannabis tea played in past societies. In India, a concoction called ‘Bhang’ was – and still is – a popular drink made from cannabis leaves, milk, nuts, and spices. It’s a key feature of Holi, the festival of colors, demonstrating the cultural significance attached to the plant and its beverages.

In China, cannabis tea was traditionally used as medicine prescribed for ailments like malaria, rheumatism, and even absent-mindedness. The detailed prescriptions in the ancient pharmacopoeia underscore the scientific approach taken by these early practitioners towards cannabis infusions.

While the methods of preparation and consumption have evolved, the essence of cannabis tea remains unchanged. Understanding its history enriches your perspective, acknowledging the time-honored tradition you’re part of when brewing a cup of cannabis tea.

Health Benefits of Cannabis Infusions

Unraveling the myriad health benefits of cannabis infusions reveals that these therapeutic brews can provide relief from a wide range of ailments thanks to their rich cannabinoid and terpene profiles. These infusions harness the potent properties of cannabis to deliver a soothing and healing effect.

Cannabis infusions can alleviate chronic pain, reduce anxiety, and even help manage symptoms associated with serious conditions such as cancer and epilepsy. The cannabinoids in these infusions interact with your body’s endocannabinoid system to regulate various physiological and cognitive processes like pain sensation and mood. This interaction improves your overall health and wellbeing.

The infusion techniques used to extract cannabinoids enhance their bioavailability, making them more readily absorbed into your bloodstream. This improved cannabinoid bioavailability ensures that you reap maximum health benefits from each cup of cannabis tea. However, it’s important to get the dosage right as too much can lead to undesirable side effects like drowsiness or dry mouth.

In summary, cannabis infusions present a natural holistic approach to health and wellness. Their unique blend of cannabinoids and terpenes helps restore balance in your body promoting a sense of calmness and relaxation.

Brewing the Perfect Cannabis Tea

Now that you understand the health benefits of cannabis infusions, let’s explore how to brew the perfect cannabis tea. The process is detailed and scientific, yet open to customization allowing you to cater to varying preferences.

  1. Strain Selection: The first step involves choosing the right strain of cannabis. The strain impacts the tea’s overall effect, flavor, and aroma. Indica strains typically induce relaxation while Sativa strains may stimulate energy and creativity. Hybrid strains offer a balance of both.
  2. Decarboxylation: This scientific process involves heating the cannabis to activate beneficial compounds. Typically, you’d bake the cannabis at a low temperature for about 30 to 40 minutes. Without decarboxylation, you’re missing out on your brew’s full potential.
  3. Infusion: Now add the decarboxylated cannabis to a pot of boiling water with a fat source like coconut oil. Cannabinoids are fat-soluble meaning they bind with fat for optimal extraction. Let this simmer for 15-30 minutes then strain it – your tea is ready!

Cannabis Tea Vs Other Cannabis Products

You may be familiar with other forms of cannabis consumption such as smoking or edibles but it’s essential to understand how cannabis tea compares and contrasts with these methods in terms of benefits, potency, and bioavailability.

Cannabis tea offers a unique mode of ingestion that bypasses the heating process involved in smoking or vaporizing which may degrade some beneficial compounds. Tea potency can be adjusted according to your needs and preferences making it a customizable option. In terms of bioavailability, the active compounds in cannabis, THC and CBD, are fat-soluble meaning they’re better absorbed when consumed with fats. Adding milk or coconut oil to your cannabis tea can enhance absorption.

Taste variations in cannabis tea are another aspect to consider. While some users enjoy the distinct herbal flavor of cannabis, others might find it overpowering. This can be managed by blending cannabis with other herbs or flavors to make the tea more palatable.

Compared to edibles, cannabis tea generally has a quicker onset of effects and is easier to dose. It also provides a discreet and socially acceptable way to consume cannabis particularly for those who prefer not to smoke or inhale.

Risks and Considerations for First-Timers

Despite the noted benefits and versatility of cannabis tea, it’s important for beginners to consider potential risks and take certain precautions. Understanding dosage guidance, learning from first-timer experiences, and realizing potential adverse effects are essential steps ensuring your journey with cannabis tea is both safe and beneficial.

  1. Dosage Guidance: Begin with low doses slowly increasing as you familiarize yourself with the effects. The potency of cannabis tea can vary widely depending on the strain used and brewing process so start slow then gradually adjust as your body acclimatizes.
  2. First Timer Experiences: It’s worth researching and learning from others’ experiences. Understanding how others have reacted to similar dosages can help you anticipate potential effects and manage your expectations. Remember, everyone’s body chemistry is unique and you may react differently.
  3. Potential Adverse Effects: Be aware of possible side effects such as dry mouth, dizziness, or changes in perception. If these occur, don’t panic. Instead stay hydrated, rest and consider reducing your dosage next time.


As you embark on your journey with cannabis teas remember it’s not just a beverage but a legacy steeped in history.
