Making marijuana tea seems like the most obvious thing in the world. It's a plant so why not just set a pot to boil and get high. The problem is, the active ingredients in marijuana, the ones that get you high, don't release well in water. You could brew a whole gram in a cup and there wouldn't be any real affect. THC releases and bonds much much better with fats, that's why edibles are made with marijuana butter or oil.
Making tea with butter and/or oil sounds gross, and it often is. Fortunately there's a great alternative, milk. Milk has the fats necessary to extract the THC from marijuana and it tastes great with tea. What's great about the recipe we have is that you can use any kind of nut milk as a substitute, because they also contain fats. This is a great recipe for stoners and vegan stoners :)
1 gram of finely ground marijuana or hash (adjust for potency)
1 cup of milk (or nut milk i.e. almond milk)
2 cups of water
Your choice of tea
Combine the milk and marijuana in small saucepan.
Bring to a boil. Lower heat. Simmer for 15 minutes.
Attempt to reduce to 3/4 cups.
Strain milk, through cheesecloth or strainer.
Bring the water to a boil.
Add milk (quantity depends on taste and potency).
And Brew your choice of tea.
Flavor and Enjoy!!
Marijuana Tea is a lovely treat and great for parties, but if your just looking to get really baked, it might be better to just smoke a bowl, or make brownies.
