Can you make marijuana tea? Yes, and in this post, we’ll tell you how!
Making marijuana tea is a great, healthy alternative to smoking your weed! Smoking anything introduces toxins and chemicals you don’t need in your lungs. So, if you can make your own cannabis-infused tea to catch a buzz, this is the better option.
Marijuana tea also allows for a more relaxing way to get your THC dosage than other ingestion methods. And now that you can buy great-tasting herbal teas at the grocery store, there’s no excuse for drinking bad-tasting weed tea!
There are a few methods to make marijuana tea, just as there are several ways to make marijuana edibles. Here’s what we’ll go over in this post:
- Infusing water using dry marijuana flower (the least intoxicating method)
- Using a fat infused with cannabis with tea leaves and water

Marijuana Tea FAQ
Does marijuana tea get you high?
The main psychoactive component of marijuana – THC, is absorbed quickly through the stomach, so you’ll feel the effects of your marijuana tea a little faster. And if you make it with buds instead of trim, you’ll process a lot more THC, resulting in a much stronger high!
How long does it take to make marijuana tea?
After boiling or steeping your weed for 10 minutes or longer, this will depend on how hot the water is and how strong you want your tea to be. Once done steeping, strain the contents carefully as not to burn yourself with hot water.
How long does it take to feel the effects of cannabis tea?
You’ll feel the effects of weed tea within about 20-30 minutes, depending on how quickly your body absorbs the THC. Usually, it takes around 10 minutes for marijuana to enter your system. But keep in mind, you can double or even triple the potency by making marijuana tea!
How much tea should I drink?
The amount of tea to drink depends on the potency you desire. Some good rules of thumb are: Drink one cup if you want a mild buzz, drink two cups if you want a medium buzz. Drink the third cup if you want a strong buzz. Of course, this also depends on your tolerance and how potent you’ve made your tea.
If you’re just starting out with infusions, try taking one cup of not-so-potent tea. If you don’t feel anything after an hour, it’s probably not potent enough. Try taking two cups and wait an hour. You may need to make the tea more potent if you’re not feeling the effects.
Also, creating a cannabis tincture and adding it to your tea is an option.
