Marijuana tea has several names. Most people will know what you are talking about if you call it cannabis tea, weed tea, herb tea, pot tea or ganja tea. This kind of tea has become quite popular as a substitute method for ingesting cannabinoid. So, instead of smoking pot or ingesting edibles, marijuana tea is a safe and great alternative. Once the cannabis tea is properly decarboxylated, it can be quite effective upon being ingested.
Tea that is infused using marijuana is known in India as something called “Bhang.” It is one of the tastiest methods of medicating yourself. This was first used by the Indians a few hundred years ago in the subcontinent of India. It was used for medicinal purposes mainly, but also for celebratory reasons. If you drink the right quantity of marijuana tea, it is believed to be able to alleviate symptoms related to dysentery, sunstroke, fever, clearing up phlegm, assist with digestion and appetite, the cure for speech imperfections, and it keeps the mind alert.
Marijuana tea is said to have originated in the island of Jamaica and in Indian communities. In these regions, marijuana tea has always been recognized for its medicinal benefits. In fact, many Jamaican mothers, during their pregnancy, used cannabis tea to aid in relieving stress, anxiety and morning sickness.

Marijuana tea provides a similar therapeutic feeling like edibles do, but is gives a different experience when it is smoked. The active ingredients found in the marijuana don’t go through the lungs, but through the digestive system. Therefore, the experience is delayed until the tea circulates through the body, but the effect is long lasting and can be euphoric. You could feel euphoric about an hour and a half after drinking your marijuana tea. Your experience will also depend on the strength of the cannabis strain used and its level of THC. The feelings can last up to eight hours after ingestion.
