Weed tea with stems

Without a binding agent, cannabinoids can’t cross into your bloodstream. If they can’t get into your blood, they can’t make their way to your brain. And if they can’t get to your brain, you won’t experience any of the beneficial effects. Bummer!

Cannabinoids are not water-soluble, which means that when you eat, drink, or absorb them through your mouth, they need to bind with some other chemical.
Cannabis stem tea is weed tea made exclusively with leftover stems that you can’t use in other methods of ingestion.

  • Your body composition
  • Your tolerance to THC
  • The amount of stems you use in the boiling process
  • Whether or not you use a binding agent
  • The quality of the cannabis plant you got the stems from
  • The THC percentage in the original plant

That’s where binding agents come in.
In our experience, though, logic doesn’t apply in this situation (it is weed after all, and logic seldom applies). We’ve tried it both ways and there’s really no significant difference between the final brews.
Fats make excellent binding agents, as do all types of alcohol. But not all fats and alcohols taste good in tea. Shocker, right?
We grow our plants the way Mother Nature intended: in organic soil without chemicals or pesticides. We even hand trim our plants so that they’re organic from the ground up.

Not only does that make all your smoking, dabbing, and edible experiences infinitely better, but it also means that the final step in consuming our delicious product — cannabis stem tea — is better, tastier, and well worth the effort.

What Do You Need?
So, real quick: Why do you need a binding agent? Do you need one? Cannabinoids readily bind with fat molecules, which is why edibles are usually made with weed infused oil or butter. There seems to be conflicting views on the necessity of a binding agent in tea: some say alcohol is the best; others warn adding milk will decrease the potency. We say give both a shot and let us know, because we are nothing if not high-caliber investigative journalists.

Put the water, non-marijuana tea bags, and non-alcohol binding agent into a pot. (If you elect to use alcohol, adding it too early will cause it to simply boil off immediately). Bring everything to a boil, then add your stems. Boil your stem mixture, stirring frequently. After about ten minutes, remove the pot from the heat. If you chose to use alcohol, now’s the time to add it to the pot.
