Both recreational and medicinal marijuana are usually consumed in the usual ways: by smoking, evaporating or using it in the form of edibles. Cannabis tea is less common. Did you know that cannabis tea is not only a healthier alternative than smoking, but that it also has other health benefits?
Medical marijuana is becoming more and more popular nowadays, but most users consume it the old-fashioned way. Rolling a good old joint or using a vaporizer are still the most popular methods of the consumption of weed, along with taking edibles. With marijuana tea you can get a dose of the herb without the known risks of smoking. Moreover, for patients who have mouth or throat problems or who have other respiratory diseases, it is a great way to dose.
Try cannabis tea for pain relief
What makes marijuana so special as an effective painkiller is not only its ability to actively block pain, but also the fact that it does so without the often negative side effects of conventional painkillers. More and more medical experts agree that cannabis is an effective and safe method that can be very helpful in controlling pain.
The active ingredients of cannabis have been found to bind to receptors in the central nervous system, where they can effectively block pain. This makes cannabis a powerful painkiller for treating the symptoms of conditions such as arthritis, muscle aches and other very disruptive and uncomfortable ailments.
Cannabis tea can be particularly effective as a medicine to ease pain. This is because this method of consumption has longer-lasting effects than smoking or evaporating cannabis, the effects of which last shorter.
Cannabis tea helps with digestive problems
If you smoke or evaporate cannabis, the active ingredients go directly to your brain and usually you will feel the effects immediately, sometimes after just one hit. However, our brain is not the only place in the body that can be affected by marijuana. Throughout the body, there are endocannabinoid receptors, and they are also in the digestive tract.
When drinking marijuana tea, the active ingredients of marijuana can provide rapid relief from many digestive problems, from cramping and constipation to diarrhea and acid regurgitation. Our ancestors have already used these beneficial properties of cannabis tea to relieve digestive or stomach problems, and so can you.
History shows that marijuana tea is absolutely not a new invention. Ancient cultures already used brews and teas that were enriched with cannabis because of the healthy narcotic and anti-inflammatory properties. They used this tea to treat a variety of conditions, such as epilepsy, and to help with childbirth and to relieve nausea and headache.
Making cannabis tea
It’s not that difficult to brew your own marijuana tea. The easiest way to prepare it is to simmer some tops with some butter. You can also use oil. Put it on a low heat for 20 minutes. You can also use leaves or stems instead of buds. This depends on how strong you want your tea to be. The flower buds provide the strongest brew. While the stems provide a less stronger tea.
Be patient when you drink cannabis tea
Keep in mind that, as with other cannabis beverages and edibles, it can take a while (around 30 minutes) for marijuana tea to start working. It can also last long, even up to 7 hours. So be patient and start with tea that is not that strong, so that you can first test what the effects are.
