If you are looking for the recipe of some mouth-watering cannabis stem tea, then, we think, you are at the right web address.
However, before heading straight-away to the ingredients and the method of cooking, let’s first take a look at what exactly does cannabis stem tea mean?
As the name implies, the cannabis stem tea is a dank concoction brewed from the left-over stems of marijuana plant, the buds of which have been removed or consumed.
Given below are the ingredients that you will require to make 3-4 cups of this tea:
- A ½ cup of leftover stems from your preferred organic cannabis plant
- Non-ganja tea bags of standard size
- 3 cups of purified water
- A coffee filter to, of course, strain the solid contents
- ½ tablespoon coconut oil
I know what you are thinking. After taking a look at the ingredients you must be wondering why are we making use of coconut oil?
The cannabinoids, like THC, present inside the cannabis plant are not water-soluble. Thus, in order to bind these chemicals to water, we need additional sources of fat, hence the ‘obscure’ ingredient.
Failure to do so will just result in some cannabis-flavored hot water.
Method of Preparation:
Choose if you want to grind the stems
We do not have any particular inclination towards ground or non-ground stems, neither there’s any scientific fact that could point choosing one over the other. Hence, it is completely for you to decide if you’d like to grind your stems.
Fill your kettle with purified water and add coconut oil before you set it for boiling.
Begin with the infusion
Once the water reaches the boiling point, we have to add cannabis stems to it. For the purpose, get hold of a reusable tea bag and insert all your stems and additional ingredients (like kief) into it.
Now put the tea bag in water and continue stirring it for at least 10 minutes so that the cannabinoids from stems have enough time to bind with the fat molecules (from oil).
You’re almost done now! Remove the kettle from your heating element and get rid of the tea bag.
Odds are high that you may not enjoy the drink the first time. So, in case, you feel so after taking a few sips, feel free to add your regular tea bag.
