Effects of Steeped Tea vs. Microdosing Pills
However not everyone wants to get high by smoking marijuana flower or consuming raw mushrooms.
In fact, more people than ever are looking for alternative methods to consume marijuana or magic mushrooms.
If you, too, are looking to enhance your mood, productivity and creativity using non-traditional methods you are in luck! Today we will be looking at the effects of two of the most common ones, steeped tea, and microdosing pills.
What is Cannabis Steeped Tea?
Steeped tea initially is one great and innovative way of consuming cannabis products without having to smoke or vape them.
Extremely fun to make and consume, it can be prepared with a lot of ingredients in many different ways.
A lot of people simply put dry cannabis flowers into their kettle or tea maker while they are boiling water. While this does work, the effects of the tea are weak because cannabinoids like THC do not dissolve in water.
A better way of making steeped tea is to use cannabis which has been infused with a fat, such as butter or coconut oil.
This ensures that the THC dissolves completely in your beverage, and makes it much more enjoyable. Alternatively, you could simply slip a cannabis tincture or edible in your tea, mix it, and enjoy.
Effects of Steeped tea
Unlike smoking, the effects of steeped tea are not felt immediately and instead take anywhere between 30 minutes to two hours to completely settle in. But once they kick in, they stay there for anywhere between 4 to 8 hours.
This is mainly why steeped tea is so popular, and is used to treat conditions such as chronic pain, anxiety, stress, and even PTSD.
Additionally, the effects themselves are milder and less intense than those you would get by smoking flower or hash, or consuming a concentrate. Steeped tea will not get you high, nor will it make you feel the same effects as being ‘stoned’.
But what it will do is make sure that you are able to enjoy a relaxed and peaceful day.
What are Microdosing pills
Microdosing is one great way to enjoy the benefits of cannabis or magic mushrooms, while staying away from side effects such as paranoia and headaches.
Like the name suggests, microdosing typically means repeatedly consuming psychoactive substances in smaller amounts and to enjoy the effects, without inducing a full-blown trip.
Microdosing pills contain small amounts of THC, or magic mushrooms. Consuming them will not get you high or stoned. Instead, the high will be controlled, but you will still be able to enjoy many more benefits.
Effects of Microdosing pills
Consuming microdosing pills ensures that you do not feel the full effect of marijuana or magic mushrooms.
What they do guarantee, however, is a long and sustained burst in energy, creativity, and focus.
Additionally, microdosing tends to be more beneficial medically as well.
Consuming too many highly potent drugs can be disastrous, and sometimes cause more pain and troubles than it resolves.
This is why many experts also suggest starting slow and microdosing just to get your body used to the effects of your favorite psychotropic substance.
