(Before i get in to this subject any further this is in no way supporting or opposing the use of the substance and the topic itself is out of shear curiosity and reflections during travels).
Cannabis. The word conjures up images of the 70s, the counter culture and current users aiming to find “spirituality” or merely to get high. Those who have been adventurous enough to see the cannibis culture have found the plant Cannabis to be as versitile as it is “useful” for everyday living. Products such as hemp fibers, cloths, ropes and oils, from strains of indica and sativa enjoyed by conneiseurs of “bud” have certainly enjoiyed this plant in more ways than inhaling THC!
As the topic points out, Cannabis tea and the like have been concocted in order to “capture the essence of the herb without any undue guilt” by inhaling. Users have been found to use the regular brewing methods of tea with but an added twist: Butter! The cannabis plant main chemical: Tetra-hydro-cannabinol is fat soluable and therefore more likely to released in vast quantities at levels higher than when smoked. The resulting brew when orally taken induces a “bodily high” and a relaxed sensations to users with “limited effects” of the mental state. This allows a cannabis users to experience the" full beauty of heaven" and “meditation” without the numbing the conscience state normally associated with smoking the cannibis.
This method has also been used as a form of religious induction to "meet "or “experience the gods”. My travels into India has users drinking Bhang Lassi and no its not the yogurt drink with mangoes but a yogurt drink with hemp! Its specially made by government regulated and controlled Bhang shops and available only in the months where Holi is celebrated as a part of the customs with Hinduism. Holi a holiday which celebrates the sons of greater god Vishnu upon killing the demon holika. The celebration follows lighting of bonfires, devotees throwing colored water and powders at each other and some drinking Bhang Lassi!
wow that sounds interesting. Too bad it isn’t available in Canada, especially for those who have terminal illnesses :)
That does sound interesting, I wont lie i have used cannabis and i have made cannabis butter for recipes and i must say it is awesome, i have also made plenty of teas that use butter and they were also awesome, i have never made tea with cannabis butter however i could only image that it would be double awesome. Too bad its illegal here
weird how certain substances are illegal and other are not huh? But that sound of butter tea sure sounds like it tastes good! A savory sweet concoction kinda like Lapsang.
Butter Teas are wonderfull and you can make them sweet or savory. i’ll have to try one with Lapsang now lol
I once made cannabis tea using Rishi’s masala chai and olive oil. I just brewed the tea like I normally would, mixed the brewed tea, finely ground cannabis, and a tablespoon of olive oil in a thermos and let it sit for an hour and a half and shook it every now and then. The final product was delicious and produced extremely calming and peaceful effects that lasted the whole day. It was a simple way to enjoy my two favorite plants. (I am not endorsing or condoning the use of cannabis, what is good for me may not be good for others. I do however believe in the individual’s right to choose what they do in the privacy of their own home so long as it is responsible and not harmful to others in any way).
… legally … (no problem;)
I guess if there are any “medical shops”or dispensaries around you can buy at your leisure…
i think you are on your own there, this is a tea site not a cannabis site, sorry guy
I live in the Netherlands in a city called Groningen to be precise, of course i have used Cannabis or ’’wiet’’ like we call it in the Netherlands :), i must say here in the Netherlands its not that big of a deal. I have never made Cannabistea though, does it taste good, and do you mix it with other herbs or tea’s i am?
Would you send me an email, please. You will find the address in my profile (website link).
[Unfortunately it is not possible to send a PM here.]
(I understood it this way too, but…)
I think it will be much better if it would be possible to send an initial PM to make the contact. (Because how should the other know…?)
I’ll allow the discussion of general cannabis tea for now. But I need to draw the line at asking where you can get find some and will have to remove the thread if that continues, sorry.
