Cannabis Recipes - CBD Ginger Honey TeaRecipe and photos by Shannon Ullman

Cold weather usually means more citrus fruits and lots of tea. This tea recipe combines both of
these winter favorites with the added benefit of healing CBD oil. (Note from Cheri, there is no reason this tea could not also be made with regular THC oil.)

It’s refreshing, festive, and will warm you up from the inside out. The ginger, orange, and CBD
work together to aid digestion, invigorate the senses, and reduce inflammation.

You can make this recipe in a Tea Maker like the one pictured above, or if you don’t have one, use a Tea Ball and an extra large mug.

The CBD oil used in this recipe is an unflavored full spectrum CBD extract.  You can use your favorite brand.  If you don’t live in a state where you can get cannabis-based CBD that includes some THC, or if drug testing prevents you from using any THC at all, I recommend Joy Organics as a quality full spectrum CBD product that’s available nationwide.    For a 10% discount on Joy Organics CBD products, enter the coupon code cheri10 at checkout.

Notes on CBD Dosing from Cheri

As with any cannabis recipe, please adjust the dosage to your needs.  The most challenging part of cooking with CBD (as with THC) is dosing, but since CBD is non-psychoactive, the effects of too much CBD will not be as intense as too much THC, if they are felt at all.

Too much CBD has no known side effects, nonetheless, too much is not necessarily the most effective therapeutic dose.

According to Martin Lee, director of Project CBD (the web’s best source for credible CBD information) in many cases, less is more. He says that when mixed with THC, far lower doses of CBD are needed, often as little as 2.5 mgs. However, those using a pure CBD isolate or distillate will require a far higher dose.

In all cases, CBD works best in the presence of some THC and the full spectrum of cannabinoids and terpenes in whole plant medicine.  Some of you reading, however, may not have this option, depending on where you live and what the current laws allow concerning cannabis.  The second best option is a full-spectrum high CBD hemp product like those made by Joy Organics.

Everyone’s CBD needs are different and while one person may do well on a low dose of 2.5 milligrams, others will need much more, even up to a gram or more.

Lee suggests taking several small doses over the course of several days instead of one large dose, and then noting how you feel. He also cautions that cannabis is biphasic, meaning that low and high doses can produce opposite effects, so take things slowly to discover your optimal dose range.

Notes

Note: You will notice an oily sheen at the top of your tea, and may feel some of the oil left over on your lips. This is normal.)
