Adding honey, milk, lemon or other spices will not alter the chemical composition of cannabinoids, which means that it won’t affect your high.
It tastes a lot like soaked and squeezed weed, but also it’s a little buttery. Weed tea has a very unique taste to it which can be improved by adding honey or certain spices in it.
interested in what complications should arise? On second thought… I suppose the shenanigans could go over board when one is stoned out of their mind and left to their own devices.
So, I’m pretty sensitive to THC and when you say 150mg for 1 g of weed with a pretty standard THC content that sounds like way too much. Even half of that seems high for me. 10mg edibles tend to give me panic attacks. Is it possible to make something weaker than 10mg of TCH and add in some different tea leaves for taste? That’s the kind of recipe I’m looking for.
Here are some of the most frequently asked questions regarding weed tea.
The effects of marijuana-infused tea generally manifest slowly.
If I use stems to brew my tea will it leave a smell in the kitchen while brewing it?
If you make it right, weed tea tastes just like any other tea, however since it’s made with cannabis, it will give you the energy you need to get through rough mornings and take you to sleep after exhausting days.
I would just decarb shake, crush, and steep in a tea bag. No oilyness, only the gentle herby taste of the shake

2. Leaves of the Camellia sinensis/assamica tea shrub steeped in water infused with cannabinoids from the marijuana plant.
Cannabis brewed in water can be bitter and grassy. Whole cannabis flowers are used in traditional Indian bhangs, but these beverages also have other ingredients. And it’s not tea, it’s bhang. Tea is Camellia sinensis/assamica, always.
But what about tisane? Cannabis tisane can be made with any form of cannabis as long as an emulsifier is present in the water to distribute the non-water soluble chemistry throughout the beverage. But again, cannabis alone, infused in water is not very tasty. To make a really lovely cannabis tisane you need some more herbal ingredients that complement the cannabinoids, herbs with many of the same terpenes found in cannabis like mint leaves, lemon, clove, and florals like rose and lavender. Cannabis is a wonderful plant but the flavor can be overpowering when it is brewed as a single herb tisane or if too much of the green plant material is used in herbal tisane blends.
#1 is not really tea. In order for something to be a tea it must include leaves from Camellia sinensis/assamica. #1 is technically what is known as a tisane. The difference between tea and tisane is very important, but rarely addressed by many authors of beverage recipes.
#2 Is the correct definition of cannabis tea. Or rather, cannabis-infused tea. Cannabis product + emulsifiers + leaves from Camellia sinensis/assamica make tea which has been infused with cannabinoids and other essential oils from the cannabis plant using emulsifying ingredients that distribute the non-water soluble chemistry throughout the beverage.
Infusing this with a small amount of cannabis oil adjusted exactly to the dose that is best for you could not be easier. You’ll want to select a cannabis hashish or extract that is low in the kind of terpenes that give off a “skunky” odor and select something with low or no odor, or select a concentrate with pronounced limonene (citrus) fragrance for the best results with flavor. Simply select your hashish or concentrate and decarb this in a small amount of camellia seed oil or rice bran oil for best results. I prefer camellia seed oil. 1/2 gram of any concentrate or hashish dissolved and decarbed in 1 tablespoon of oil will make multiple servings based on the percentage of THC. My rule of thumb has been to calculate this based on how much “dab” it might take me to experience effect in a vape session–and then measure the portion of decarbed oil into each tea cup based on that. You can always try more in an hour if you don’t feel anything–but be sure to wait an hour or two before serving more of the oil in tea!
Now, let’s make a cup or two of delicious cannabis tea!
When you hear the terms cannabis tea or marijuana tea what is meant is actually one of these two things:
Making cannabis tea appealing involves controlling the overpowering terpenes and 'green' flavors of the plant material. Tea leaves are delicate and have their own set of terpenes–many of which can also be found in cannabis and that complement the cannabinoids in cannabis.
