Green tea with marijuana is one of the most widely consumed herbal teas related to cannabis. This infusion is so popular that it can even be found sold by some companies. Obviously, the marijuana teas currently marketed do not contain THC, otherwise they would be illegal.
Another option is to make our own infusion of green tea with marijuana. The idea of the following article is to provide the reader with all the information needed to produce his or her own tea and consume it quickly, cheaply and safely.
What is green tea with marijuana?
Marijuana green tea consists of a mixture made from leaves and buds of the tea plant or Camellia sinensis and cannabis leaves. This mixture has medicinal properties, both analgesic and relaxing and antioxidant, among others.
One of the effects of tea infusion with marijuana is stimulation at physical and mental level. This is due to the alkaloids that compose it, such as theine, which can produce a sensation of euphoria. Now, that sensation is what green tea produces, but once we add marijuana, the effects can vary considerably. For example, if we add marijuana sativa, the effect of psychedelic euphoria will be accentuated, but if we add Indian marijuana, the euphoric effect will be counteracted and get a more relaxing effect. Homemade tea does contain THC, unlike commercial tea, which does not contain THC but CBD.
- Butter (10 to 15g)
- Whole milk (1/4 cup)
- Honey (optional)
Remember that milk is necessary to fix THC as it is a liposoluble cannabinoid and therefore is not soluble in water but in oil.

- Cook in a frying pan the butter next to the chopped marijuana, about 5 minutes.

- Finally, you can add honey to sweeten the solution even more.
It is optional to further heat or cool the solution, as it can be consumed both hot and cold without altering its properties.
