Weed tea has long been used as a tool to sooth common conditions like inflammation, nausea and pain, but unfortunately, cannabis is known for its THC content, which is psychoactive, resulting in many people who might benefit from a treatment, to turning it down. Not everyone can risk a reduced level of motor function or delayed reaction time, and for those that can’t, CBD products like edibles or tea can be the perfect solution.

The best part about this CBD weed tea recipe, is that it can be made using regular cannabis that is high in CBD, hemp flowers that are rich in the element, or by using pure and unadulterated CBD oil as a base of infusion, but the best and easiest to manage method by far is CBD oil.

Now, if you are unfamiliar with how to make CBD oil, or do not have access to a reliable vendor of this kind of product, then the next best option is pure fresh buds from either hemp or cannabis. Just remember, that using bud adds the extra step of decarboxylation which must be performed before the brewing to effectively convert and release the therapeutic effects of CBD into your steaming hot cup of tea.

How to decarboxylate bud flowers for edibles

A lot of consumers assume that THC is the only element that requires activation to be effective, but CBD also needs that extra push. To decarboxylate your cannabis you will need a few tools, some patients and an oven.

You will need

  • 1 gram of hemp or cannabis flower
  • Baking sheet
  • Weed grinder
  • Parchment paper


  1. Preheat an oven to 325°F.

  2. Grind up the herb using a grinder, then line the baking sheet with parchment paper.

  3. Sprinkle the grind across the middle of the lined baking pan.

  4. Bake the cannabis/hemp in the oven for 35 minutes to decarboxylate.

CBD Tea recipe


Edibles are a treat, but this weed tea beats most recipes out there, with how fast it is to put together. The best part is that you can personalize the flavor and keep things interesting by switching up the type of tea bags used, which can help to keep the effects of this CBD tea fun and enjoyable.

You will need

  • 1 teaspoon of CBD oil (or 1 gram of decarboxylated flowers)
  • 1 tea bag (any flavor)
  • 1 mug
  • ½ cup of boiling hot water
  • 1 small teaspoon
  • Flavor additives


  1. If you are using buds then slice open a teabag and fill it with the grind, so that it can steep in the water as it boiled to release the THC.

  2. Fill a small pot with water and bring it to a rolling boil.

  3. Pour the boiling hot water over the tea bag and then add in the cannabis oil (if applicable).

  4. If you used bud grind, then gently stir the tea bag for a couple of minutes after it’s been poured before adding any flavorings like sugar, milk, honey or cream.

  5. Remove the tea bag from the mug, and gently press, to release the delightful aromas and smells of your favorite tea.

  6. Your CBD tea is now ready to serve and is best enjoyed while hot.
