Once the effects do kick in, they can last for several hours. So, if you’re looking for a long-lasting high, cannabis tea is a great option. Just be patient and don’t drink too much at once!
WILL CANNABIS TEA GET ME HIGH?
To experience the euphoric effects of getting high, the THCA in the cannabis plant must convert to THC through a process called decarboxylation.
This happens naturally when you consume cannabis through smoking or vaping, as the heat helps CBDA convert into CBD, the major medicinal component in cannabis.
However, you can also decarboxylate cannabis by cooking it, which is how many people choose to make their own edibles.
When you cook with cannabis, the fat in the recipe helps to bind the cannabinoids and extract THC from the plant matter. This process is essential for making potent edibles, as it allows your body to absorb more THC.
The decarboxylation process is also what gives cannabis its distinctive smell and taste.
If you want to make sure your edibles are as potent as possible, it’s important to decarboxylate your cannabis before cooking with it.
You can do this by heating the cannabis in an oven at 240 degrees Fahrenheit for around 40 minutes. This will help to convert the THCA into THC, making your edibles more psychoactive.
