The medicinal applications of cannabis have been known to man for ages. In ancient times, doctors and polymaths prescribed cannabis to their patients suffering from pain and cuts, sleeplessness, loss of appetite and nausea. Compounds like CBD and THC that are present in cannabis help in curing and treating many ailments. The modern age has seen further developments in the therapeutic application of marijuana. Cannabis is being used to treat diseases like Parkinson’s disease, Crohn’s disease, diabetes, glaucoma, PTSD and many more.
There are several methods of cannabis consumption. The most prevalent method is smoking. This involves rolling the ground cannabis into a paper joint or using other smoking accessories like bongs, pipes or chillums. It is ingested in the form of tinctures and cannabis oil extracts. It can be vaped through a vaping device. Lastly, it can be infused with foods and drinks like marijuana infused wine, cannabis infused cookies and marijuana infused wine.
Marijuana Infused Tea
Tea has existed on this planet for as long as marijuana or perhaps more. Tea drinking formally started in China, moved to India and spread throughout the world like wild fire. Tea contains anti-oxidants and antiemetic properties.
When cannabis is infused in the tea, the whole scenario shifts. Marijuana infused tea is a delicacy in many countries of the world. Pregnant women in Jamaica used to drink this tea to help them relax and help reduce their pain and cramps. It is also very common in many medical marijuana patients.
Since this method of ingestion is a lot safer and healthier than smoking, it is preferred throughout the world.
Make Marijuana Infused Tea
To make marijuana infused tea you need 1 cup boiling water, 1 tea bag, 1 teaspoon cannabutter and 1 teacup. Cannabutter is basically cannabis infused butter made by heating the two together and storing overnight.
First the cup is taken and the cannabutter and the teabag is put in it. Boil the water and pour it in the cup slowly while you stir. This will help dissolve the cannabutter. Wait until all the cannabutter has dissolved and then remove the teabag. Add other ingredients like milk, honey or spices and stir properly.
Your cannabis infused afternoon tea is ready to be served.
