How to Make Cannabis Tea

If you want to make the best ‘high tea,’ you will need the right ingredients and measurements that fit just right to avoid overdosing. We explain the steps to making the best cup of weed tea.  

Not everyone wants to smoke their weed for obvious reasons. Over time, people have come up with great ways to indulge in this holy weed, one of them being topical application. We have also been seeing good reviews on high tea on and related sites, and readers seem to think it’s one of the best ways to enjoy their cannabis. We see why weed tea gets that much hype: it is delicious, discreet, and you can dose your cannabis appropriately. 

Here are two tea cannabis recipes you might appreciate: 

Tea with Chamomile, Rose, and Honey


  • 2 tablespoons ground cannabis or the buds

  • 1 tablespoon dried chamomile 

  • 1 tablespoon dried rose buds 

  • 2 tablespoons canna-infused honey

  • Plant-based or cow milk


  1. Decarboxylate the weed if you want the benefits from THCA or THC. This takes some time, so you will want to factor in the extra time. 

  2. Put your dried chamomile and rose buds into the infuser, add hot water, and let them steep for 5-10 minutes. 

  3. Remove the infuser and add your honey and milk for the full benefits. 

Enjoy your high tea. 

Tea with Medicated Coconut Oil

If you are feeling the keto way, this recipe will be a good addition to your arsenal. 


  • 1.5 cups unsweetened almond milk

  • Cinnamon

  • 1 teaspoon dried turmeric

  • 1 tablespoon ginger powder

  • 3/4 teaspoon whole black peppercorns

  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil 

  • 1 tablespoon honey to sweeten

  1. Add the almond milk, peppercorns, ginger, cinnamon, a cup of water, and turmeric into a saucepan and bring to a boil under low heat. 

  2. Reduce the heat and add coconut oil. 

  3. Let it simmer under low heat for 10 minutes for all the ingredients to bring out the flavors.

  4. Sieve, serve in mugs, and then add a dash of cinnamon to complete the setting. 


Q: Can I get high from cannabis tea? 

A: Yes, you can get high from this tea if you made it right. You may want to decarboxylate your cannabis before using it in your tea to bring out the psychotic effects of THC, and this will take a bit of time and a proper process. 

Q: How long will the effects of marijuana take to kick in after I take this tea? 

A: Like with other edibles, it will take longer to feel the effects because the tea will pass through the digestive system before it is fully ready for absorption. You may want to give it an hour or two before the full effects kick in, and during this time, it would be unwise to top up your dosage. You want to wait until you feel the effects before refiling your cup because this high lasts longer than the one from smoking. 

Q: What can I add to canna tea to make it more potent? 

A: You can add kief and/or a tincture to make things better if you do not get the expected kick from your beverage. Kief is from trichomes in flowers, so you can add it to the tea to steep. You want to go easy since it is hard to tell how much THC is in the kief, so too much of it will get you higher than you may have intended. 

When making white tea, you want to use an oil-based tincture as it absorbs perfectly. If not, glycerin or alcohol-based one will work best. You want to start with half a dropper’s worth to avoid getting too much in the tea if you want to control the potency. 

Q: Does a tea high last longer than a dab or smoke? 

A: Users are built differently, so everyone’s tolerance levels are not the same, but smoking gives you an immediate high that doesn’t last too long. Tea is similar to edibles in that it will take you a while to get high, and you will remain in this state longer than smoking.

Q: What are the likely side effects of marijuana tea? 

A: They include the usual effects of intravenous consumption of weed: dizziness, headache, fatigue, nausea, hunger, paranoia, and confusion. They occur when you take too much of it, so proper dosing will prevent these effects. 


How do you dose marijuana tea properly? It varies from user to user, but 10 to 20 mg of THC will suffice in most cases if you use a THC tincture. Half a gram to one gram should work just fine if using the ground product. You may want to start slowly and increase your usage as you learn your tolerance levels. You want to remember it takes a while to kick in as it is edible, so patience will protect you from overdosing and suffering side effects.
