How To Make Your Cannabis Tea Stronger?

Often, the cannabis tea won’t hit high or as you want it, despite your best efforts. Luckily, there are many ways to level-up dosage if the initial tea lacks the required THC content.

Here are some killer tips to make your cannabis tea extra potent and edible:

Add Kief

Also called pollen or dry sift, Kief is the strongest part of the marijuana flower that contains a high level of terpenes and cannabinoids in its sticky, tiny crystals.

Unlike other strains with 12-15% THC, Kief can be about 70% THC based on purity, providing a much stronger marijuana tea to drink and get high. Add it to the flower, compost, or stem material when steeping to get your desired potency.

Include Tinctures

Add tinctures to spice up your cannabis tea and experience. Conventional marijuana tinctures are alcohol-based infusions that you can blend with different beverages such as coffee or tea. Once you pour it into your tea, the alcohol content evaporates, making you high.

Since the market is full of various cannabis tinctures, choosing the perfect one can be challenging. So, choose alcohol- or glycerin-based tincture from a well-known brand instead of an oil-based one.

Add a few drops into your tea based on your potency and stir. However, you can add oil-based tinctures with creamer or milk for more potency and better consistency.

Decarboxylate Your Natural Herb

Although consuming raw cannabis can have several benefits, it won’t make you high if you don’t decarboxylate your natural herb first.

It’s a simple process where you convert the THCA to THC by heating the weed so it generates more potent effects. Make sure to heat your weed at 220-245°F.

Add Cream Or Milk To Your Marijuana Tea

This tip does more than add flavor and aroma. Adding a good amount of cream or milk to your marijuana tea can improve its potency. According to one study, fat-based formulations can increase cannabinoid absorption by 2.5 to 3 fold.
