It’s the perfect drink for kicking up your feet, putting on some music, and relaxing after a long day.

Ready? It’s time to spill the tea on CBD flower tea!

What is CBD Flower Tea?

CBD (cannabidiol) tea, also known as hemp or cannabis tea, is brewed from dried hemp flower. Hemp can be combined with other teas or herbs, or it can be as simple as CBD flower and hot water. It sounds easy (and it can be), but to get the most effective cup of CBD flower tea, there is some preparation involved. Poruing hot water over CBD flower is an option, but it might not turn out as you expect.

Also, like most teas, CBD flower tea is essentially a blank slate — if you want the soothing taste of hemp and terpenes, you can have that! Or you can spice it up with milk, honey, lemon, or any flavoring you desire.

Take note that hemp tea is a type of CBD tea, but not all CBD tea is hemp tea. Other CBD teas can be normal teas infused with a cannabidiol extract, like CBD oil or honey.

Is CBD Flower Tea Legal?

Absolutely! CBD products derived from hemp are federally legal. Since the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill, hemp production and sales are allowed in the United States and online. This includes CBD flower (or hemp flower), which is used to make CBD flower tea.

Hemp is made from the cannabis plant and must contain less than 0.3% THC. THC is the compound in marijuana that, if taken in large amounts, can induce intoxication or a “high.” Fortunately, since hemp must contain such small traces of THC, CBD products (including tea) won’t get you high.

Is CBD Flower Tea Easy to Make?

Yes! Making CBD flower tea is very easy once you prepare the hemp flower. The flower must go through a decarboxylation process in order for you to take full advantage of the CBD (more on that later).

But once that is done, cannabidiol tea can be made just like any other tea. Boil water, steep the flower, add things to suit your taste, and voila — tea!

How to Make CBD Flower Tea

If you can make regular tea, you can make CBD flower tea. The process is simple, but it’s always a good idea to take it slow your first time. By following the processes and recipes outlined below, you’ll be sipping on soothing CBD tea in no time!

Decarboxylation

A great CBD flower tea is all about preparation. The CBD flower has to go through a process called decarboxylation, which is a fancy word that basically means activating the CBD in the flower.

The hemp flower needs heat to convert the cannabinoids (like CBD) into a state that allows them to interact with your body more effectively. Sounds complex, but don’t worry — you don’t need a lab. You can do this at home with just an oven!

Follow these steps to decarboxylate CBD flower:

  1. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees (F).
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil.
  3. Grind/crush the CBD flower.
  4. Spread the flower evenly on the baking sheet.
  5. Bake in the oven for approximately 35 minutes.

Brewing CBD Flower Tea

Now comes the fun part! There are a lot of ways to brew hemp tea, and there isn’t one way that’s better than another. It all really depends on your preference and how you like your tea. Here we will highlight just two ways to make hemp tea, but we encourage you to find a way that you like best.
