  • Be sure to grind the cannabis into small pieces to help it infuse better with the butter or oil.
  • Keep the heat low and be patient when simmering the cannabis and butter or oil mixture to prevent burning or overheating.
  • Use a high-quality loose-leaf herbal tea for the best flavor.
  • Start with a small amount of cannabis (1 gram or less) if you are new to edibles or have a low tolerance.
  • Store any leftover tea in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

We are sure you are a perfect cook! Nonetheless, do remember to pay attention to the amount of Cannabis Herbal Tea (Tisane) you consume: it should always be modified based on the strength of your product and the potency you desire. Dosing homemade edibles can be tricky, so it is strongly recommended to start with one portion of a serving. After one or two hours, listen to your body and decide whether to consume more. It is not recommended to drive or operate any machinery when taking edibles. Use responsibly!
