Get High! All you need is a gram of ground cannabis flower and about 20 minutes to spare.
- 1 gram of ground cannabis (Sour or any citrus-scented strain works well)
- 1 tablespoon of unsalted butter or coconut oil
- Teabag of your choosing
- 4 cups of water
- Any other ingredients for flavor such as honey, milk, sugar, cinnamon, etc.
- Cheesecloth or a fine strainer
Boil 4 cups of water in a medium-sized pot. Once it’s boiling, add the tablespoon of butter or coconut oil and allow it to completely dissolve. THC needs something fatty to stick to under high heat — that’s how we separate the good stuff from the plant material.
Add your gram of ground cannabis into the boiling pot, and turn the temperature down to a simmer.
Allow this mixture to simmer for fifteen minutes. For really great weed or really passionate cannabis-foodies, it can be worth it to simmer at as low a temperature as possible.
Now it’s time to strain out the little bits of cannabis. Carefully and slowly pour the boiling mixture through the cheesecloth and into your chosen vessel.
Add your teabag into the teapot, along with any desired extras like mint, lemon, honey, or a cinnamon stick and stir well. Steep for about three minutes.
Remove the teabag, stir well to incorporate the infused butter throughout, and pour yourself a cup.
