THC Teas by HighTea
High Tea is an exceptional line of cannabis-infused, herbal loose-leaf tea blends. This cannabis herbal loose-leaf blend is an excellent way to start or end the day. Each package contains 10 servings of high-quality tea with 10 mg THC of organic ground cannabis throughout the packet.
These delicious teas help to relieve stress, inflammation, pain, nausea, and cramps. Try adding coconut oil or butter during brewing for a delicious creamy flavour that also helps with the digestion of cannabinoids. We recommend that you brew and steep for at least 10 minutes. The potency of the THC’s effects is increased the longer the leaves are left to steep. In other words, the longer you steep your THC tea bags the stronger your cup is going to be.
Available in Chamomile Smile, Cuppa Chai, Earl of Grey and Majestic Mint. If THC isn’t your cup of tea, you can try CBD Infused Teas for a non-psychoactive alternative.
THC Tea Effects
A delicious way to experience Cannabis, these teas offer a much fuller body high compared to smoking or vaporizing. Cannabis is absorbed through the digestive tract, which takes considerably more time than absorption through the lungs, so effects can take upwards of an hour to set in, and can last from 2 to 6 hours. In other words, be prepared to enjoy sustained effects from even small doses.
How to Brew THC Teas?
-Add 1 tsp per 250ml of boiled water.
-Steep for 10 minutes or longer; the longer it’s steeped the stronger the Tea.
-It’s optional to add 1/4 tsp or more of coconut oil or butter while steeping. Adding some fat to the tea will increase your body’s ability to absorb cannabinoids.
-To make a tea latte, follow the previous steps, then remove the leaves and blend with your ideal creamy mix.
What Are Edibles?
Cannabis Edibles are any food that has been infused with Cannabinoids, typically THC and/or CBD. You can find them in a wide variety of products, but most often they come in the form of a dessert. Popular variations include Brownies, Cookies, Chocolates or Gummies. In reality, any recipe that calls for oil or butter can be made into a Cannabis Edible.
The body processes Cannabinoids differently when ingested rather than inhaled. As a result, the effects are quite unique. When ingested, Cannabis is absorbed through the digestive tract and into the liver. Even though this delays the effects, it drastically increases potency and duration. In some cases, Edibles can take up to an hour to take effect and last upwards of 6 hours.
How to Dose THC Teas
First, read the packaging to understand the dosing information. Edible packages should always include milligram dosages by serving and by package.
Second, whether or not you have previously eaten can play a critical factor. Eating an edible on an empty stomach will cause the effects to onset much more rapidly than someone who has recently eaten, or has a full stomach.
A good general rule to follow for dosing Edibles is to start with a single dose of 5 milligrams of THC. After ingesting, give yourself 1-2 hours to gauge the effects before eating any more.
