I learned the hard way to make Tea with cannabis. If you have stomach problems you can use just the leaf, stems and trimmings. All you start with is water and product. Boil then steep as you would with regular tea. When made this way there is no THC removed from product. Let it cool completely then add sweetener or flavors. This can be given to anyone and their tummies will feel better quickly. If you add anything to the product and water when boiling it will pull out the THC and will get you messed up! I learned this all completely by accident. Never tried using cannabutter! @ Michaelmann Try making a tincture using Food grade gliceryn.

Question. I suffer from Chronic Pancreatitis and fats oils and butter are VERY dangerous for me! What can be used that doesn't involve fats, oils or any type of alcohol or spirits? Any ideas folks?

This is a perfect recipe. I've used this technique in the past and while the butter floats on top a bit the taste is fine and it'll start to hit you before your cup is finished. Easy doesn't mean bad. Very effective and ready in no time.

Well! Silly me...I simply use a couple of teaspoons of well cured leaf/buds, steep it for ten minutes in just-short-of-boiling filtered water and sip on the fragrant brew to settle my horrific anxiety related to chronic pain.
Works for me.

In the past I've always taken leaf and boiled it up with organic full cream milk and some chai spices for 45 minutes, strained it, squeezed out the residue and put the thick marijuana cream into ice-cubes then added them to chai, coffee, tea whatever. One cube was plenty. For some reason, all of a sudden the mixture tho not changed, nor has the source - it's way weaker than before. I've read about decarboxylation. Will this make the mix stronger if i decarb the leaf first?

How do I store this?

I live in colombia and I think the whole country is about to legalize for medical. I own a pretty nice tea ball and at the moment I'm thinking about putting some butter and ground up herb in the ball and then maybe some coca tea with a little making soda to activate it plus some other stuff for flavoring, possibly the local firewater too. Any reason this won't work?

kushboy 28.10.2014
I heard u can just put steams in a bit of hot water and then put tea bag in a cup of hot water then poor the water with steams in

candyman420 28.10.2014

GanjaMan10 28.10.2014
Use THC if you have no butter

Jephro 28.10.2014
Might as well just eat a teaspoon of cannabutter and chase with your favorite tea.

AnnaJohn 23.10.2014
Does it taste good? The tea must be oily.

Years ago when I was in my teens my mom used to make weed broth chicken soup.She would boil good size stalks for a couple hours,then remove stalk and add your vegetables,chicken or whatever. Then ENJOY!! Awesome on a rainy day when you've got the winter flu.
You won't care after a bowl(of soup) :)

rooney 05.10.2014
I find one teaspoon is too strong. No pain but wow what a buzz :)

Cupcake150 09.09.2014
I use the stems. I boil them in water. Add a little honey and sip away.

Can I use the weed that's used for smoking up instead of cannabutter????

Galen 15.08.2014
I would like to clarify something. Do I decarboxylate, then use that result in the Butter recipe? I just want to do it right the first time.

I have been making tea for years now with just the trimmings and other tea flavors. I boil for about 40 minutes and steep till the pot of tea is gone. No butter or oil (just cant do it). There is an oily film over the tea and a cup or two will do you fine.

All sounds awesome,. but i found, while growing a plant,.. to take all clippings and steams from the plant (Thats if you dont want to keep it or have harvest again) and with it all being moist, grind into small pieces and place in a cheese cloth and tie it closed. Toss that, and your choice of tea bags into already super hot almost boiling water.. leave on for about 5-10 minutes on med/high heat. Then turn off and STEEP for how ever long. Depending on where you live,.. Ive made this as a gallon and added sugar before it became too cool. Enjoy. A coffee cup and a half got me blazed out of my mind. I think it all has to do with the freshness. **
