    I've made very simplistic tea before with weed. It's pretty good and starts working a lot faster than most marijuana recipes. All you have to do is grab about 5g of fresh, ground up weed and strain it with boiling water into a mug. Add a lot of milk so it can gather up all the THC and knock it down.

    Uh, I thought water doesn't absorb THC, so if you strain it in water
    and then add milk, you should just be getting watery milk that tastes a
    little bit like weed.

    I have other people say they can get high off of weed tea, but I never tried it with any of my good stash.



    I did try it with sticks and shake, nothing much happened.



    Here's a basic crash course in Cooking With Weed 101:



    It's oil or alcohol soluble. Mostly for cooking you'll be using
    either oil or butter. For beverages, you'll be using alcohol.



    It usually takes at least twice the dry weight of weed as you would
    smoke, to get high from with cooking. So if the weed you have is
    of medium strength, to where you would smoke a whole joint alone to get
    off, and assuming you roll joints with about 1 gram of dry material in
    there, then you'd need 2 grams of weed for each serving of food you
    will be cooking. Now before you go thinking this is a waste of
    weed, consider that on average you'll be high an hour or two from your
    joint (if that). You'll be high for 5-8 hours from eating the two
    joints's worth. Also, smoking hits you more or less right away,
    whereas eating it takes 30-90 minutes to feel it. Also eating
    produces a much deeper, heavier stoning than smoking ever could.



    Basic recipe is to grind your weed into a powder in a coffee mill or
    something like that. Then stir-fry it over a low heat in butter
    or olive oil. After that, you can strain out the plant material,
    or just leave it in there, as you wish. Now you have cannabutter or
    canna oil. It can be stored just like that in the fridge, and
    used on bread or muffins, just spread it on a slice and eat. Or
    you can use the oil in a recipe for any baked good like cookies or
    brownies.



    You can also make spaghetti sauce with the weed, just fry up the
    hamburger, then fry up the weed in the grease from that, then finish up
    your spaghetti sauce however you like. The recipies are actually
    endless, use your immagination, just make sure you stir-fry the weed in
    some kind of oil for 1-3 minutes at some point in the recipe.



    Beverages:

    You can take any kind of high-proof spirit you like, figure out how
    many normal drink's worth are in the bottle of vodka or tequila or what
    ever, then add two joint's worth of weed to the bottle for each drink
    the bottle contains. In this case you don't need to grind to
    powder, just cut up somewhat fine with scissors (it will make filtering
    out the expended weed later easier). Soak the week in the spirits
    for 30 days, shaking the bottle vigorously once a day. Have a
    drink and get stoned.



    Home made beer can have cannabis in it too. Make the wort in the
    normal manner except bump up the sugar content of the wort to produce
    higher alcohol content beer (7-9% is good), place in fermenter and
    allow to ferment to almost finished (about 10-14 days). Now place
    the weed into the fermenter and re-close it. Allow to finish
    fermenting and let the weed soak in there another 7-14 days. Then
    bottle your beer. If you do the recipe right, so that there's 2
    joint's worth of weed for every 12-ounce bottle of beer, then one beer
    will get you stoned.





    Keep in mind the long come-on time for cannabis when consumed
    orally. Do wait at least an hour before eating that second
    cookie, or drinking that second shot or beer. No, you won't OD,
    but you will get waay high, and for some people it's disconcerting to
    be that high for that long.



    If you have any friends that are dead set against smoking anything, yet
    would like to try weed, and they have never been stoned before, please
    use caution. Give those people only 1/4 to 1/2 the oral dose you
    would take. Otherwise they can get waay too high and maybe get
    freaked out or paranoid, then if that happens you'll be trip sitting
    your poor friend for the whole day until he comes down.



    Cooking or alcoholic beverages are a good way to use up normal "waste"
    cannabis. Sure you can use bud for the purpose, but it isn't
    necessary. That nice plant you have there, that you've been
    clipping off the shade leaves from when you harvest your buds: Save all
    that normally harsh to smoke shit, and use that for your cooking. It
    will still get you plenty stoned.

    That's what I'm saying though, "weed tea" is bullshit because thc is
    only soluable in alcohol or fats or oils. The only tea I've heard
    of working is rez tea, made from resin, and that's just because it
    wasn't strained, so you're actually drinking resin granuales and hot
    water.



    A really good quick recipe I use sometimes is to take your weed, grind
    it up, mix it in a mug of milk, microwave it until it gets pretty hot,
    and then add chocolate. Then I let it sit for like 10 min, until
    it gets cool. Easy, and it doesn't smell like the ganj (except
    for the mug, just wash it).

    I grindand soak my weed in macadamia oil for a week first, shake it up everyday.Cook it real slow on low heatuntill the oil turns black or dark brown. strain the plant material and discard. Im pretty slack when it comes to making cake, i just mixthe oilinto one of those two step cake mixes (has to be chocolate) and add heaps of white chocolate bits. Because of the excessive amount of oil you need to bake the cake really slow. The macadamia really masks the taste of weed so you can make it pretty strong and it will still taste brilliant.

    I like my brownies soft and chewy anyways, so all the extra oil works
    out well towards that end. I hate macadamia nuts though, so I
    usually use pecans.

    There's a coffeeshop in Amsterdam (called Abraxas) that will make you a
    cappuccino with hash in the steamed milk part. It is soooo good! They
    do hot chocolate too, and killer chocolate milkshakes. Those things get
    you SO HIGH, though...it is really best to share one among two or three
    people.



    Although I haven't done it for a while, when I was into baking things
    with weed I would make these delicious cinnamon spice cookies, although
    I don't have the recipe at hand. The flavor of the weed really
    complimented the spicy taste of the cookies.



    I find that flavor-wise, hash goes well with chocolate, I don't really
    like weed and chocolate together--weed goes better with something spicy
    or just plain sweet, like a blondie instead of a brownie.

    If your going to make the tea you have to use MILK like Nature boy said, whole milk or cream would work the best they have the highest FAT content so the THC is absorbed

    Agreed, milk is needed. Basic concept behind Bhang.

    He says boil it and strain it, and THEN add milk. By then all the
    thc is gone, because it was strained out before hand. You would
    need to boil the weed in the milk, strain it, and THEN add water.
    In that order. That's what I was saying before.

    Olive oil to fry the weed, cause it's healthy. Pecan nut pieces 'cause they are tasty.



    The extra oil in the recipe adds moisture to the mix that is not easily
    evaporated, making them soft and chewy. And also helps to
    keep them from burning/sticking to the baking pan if you are drifty and
    forget to take them out on time.

    On the bhang thing, I have a good recipe.



    Grind up the weed to powder. On low heat, fry in a small amount of
    butter (like 1 teaspoon per serving, with maybe 2 grams of weed powder
    in it per serving). Simmer slowly so as not to burn the butter, the
    butter should be just barely bubbling. Cook weed and butter at
    this temp, stirring constantly for 2 minutes, no more. Set this aside,
    and keep
    it warm enough that the butter does not congeal.



    Now you need some Yogi Tea. Yogi Tea is a mixture of the
    following: cinnamon, black pepper, cardamom, ginger, cloves, fennel,
    and licorice root. Use about 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of yogi tea per
    serving, and put it in 1 cup water per serving. Bring water to slow
    boil, and cook the yogi tea in the water for 15 minutes. We use
    water for this, because boiling milk for so long doesn't work out so
    well. The yogi tea, being mostly bark and roots, needs to cook that
    long to release it's flavors into the water. Cook the yogi tea 20 or even 25 minutes if you want a spicier flavor.



    Now run the prepared yogi tea through a strainer to get rid of all the
    floating stuff in there, and place it back in the pot on the stove,
    bring to slow boil/simmer again. Add 1 cup milk or cream to the
    water (cream is best taste) and heat to almost boiling again. Now put
    the butter you made, complete with all the cannabis particles into the
    pot, continue to heat and stir 2-3 more minutes. Turn off heat,
    serve and enjoy.



    Very tasty, and more importantly, very effective and efficient transfer of cannibinoids to your tummy.

    Sounds really good dude...inspired me to either try this, or create a
    good recipe to make chai latte with weed. Methinks the cannabis
    flavor and the chai flavor will work really well together.

    Leaves contain THC in lower concentration than the buds. But it
    is there for those creative enough to find a way to get it out.
    Leaves definitely need not be wasted, especially if supplies are short.
