A few decades ago, people only really consumed marijuana through smoking. As a matter of fact, to this day, smoking is still the number one way that many people enjoy weed. But as the authorities around the world start to change their stance on the legality of marijuana, especially medical marijuana, people have come up with new and creative ways of enjoying marijuana and its products.

One such way is by drinking it in tea form. The tea form of marijuana is prepared in two ways; either using the buds of the plant or using the leaves and stems. A concoction made using the buds is stronger while the one made from leaves and stems are perfect for people who suffer from insomnia. Marijuana tea is preferred by many people, especially those that hate the idea of smoking. High THC and CBD content are also present in its tea form because of how it is prepared. Here are the other five known benefits of marijuana tea:

 

  1. Addresses Nausea

Cancer patients who are undergoing chemotherapy know struggles of its side effects. Not only do they lose their hair, but they also suffer from nausea and vomiting, as well as a decrease in appetite. Marijuana tea is great at solving the nausea issues. Many people have reported a reduction in nausea and vomiting after drinking marijuana tea.

 Helps Increase Appetite

Marijuana in tea form is excellent at increasing its desired effects because the active ingredients, primarily THC and CBD, are concentrated, making it more effective. Those suffering from an eating disorder or a decreased appetite can benefit from drinking the tea because the plant's compounds are delivered straight to the gut.

 Helps with Anxiety

Regular users of marijuana know very well its calming effects. In fact, it is one main reason why people use the drug. With this in mind, it only makes sense that it can be used to help with anxiety and depression. Marijuana stimulates the release of neurotransmitters in the brain to help address anxiety and depression and drinking it in tea form has a more lasting effect.

 Encourages Sleep

I have had my fair share of frustrations because try as I may, I could not fall asleep at night. Suffering from the occasional sleepless nights is something many people experience, and there are a lot of tips you can find online in addressing this. One such way is by drinking marijuana tea. Users of the plant know how easy it is to fall asleep after smoking a joint, but drinking its tea form is a lot more productive without subjecting your body to the hazards of smoking.

 Helps with Chronic Pain

For thousands of years, humans have used marijuana as a way to alleviate pain, especially chronic pain. The full reason why marijuana decreases pain is still not clear, and many types of research are underway to uncover that mystery. But many scientists believe it has something to do with the anti-inflammatory properties of the marijuana plant itself. Inflammation is one reason pain exists, and by decreasing it, pain is also minimized.
