Step 1) CBDA vs CBD Hemp Flower Tea
Decarboxylating is the process of heating up the herb converting the CBDA to CBD.
The CBD flower contains mostly CBDA until its cooked/decarboxylated.
Both kinds have various benefits.
CBDA: Anti-anxiety, anti-inflammatory, painkilling, anti-nausea, anti-convulsant.
CBD: Anti-epileptic, anti-anxiety, anti-depressive, anti-inflammatory, antipsychotic, antispasmodic, reduces insulin resistance, and more.
Step 2) How to make CBDA & CBD Hemp Flower Tea
If you’re interested in CBDA Hemp Flower Tea
Try boiling some raw cannabis flowers in water or milk. Researchers have shown that the highest rate of acid cannabinoid extraction in water comes from boiling the raw flower for about fifteen minutes.
If you’re interested in CBD Hemp Flower Tea
- Pre-heat oven to 230°F/110°C.
- Line your baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper for easy cleanup.
- Grind or break up your cannabis flower into pea-sized pieces or smaller so that the heat distributes evenly.
- Spread the ground cannabis onto the baking sheet and bake for 40 minutes.
- Remove from oven, let cool
- Use cooked herb just like tea leaves, steep with milk, keep below 230°F/110°C.
Step 3) Determine CBD Ratio:
This is not required but the following math formula will allow you to calculate the milligrams of active CBD in your hemp tea.
Number of grams used for tea multiplied by the percent of CBD in your buds
This gives you the grams of CBD in your mixture, CBD is measured in milligrams.
Multiple the grams of CBD by 1000 to get milligrams of CBD.
Now you have milligrams you need to account for the loss of CBD due to excessive heat and other activation ration factors.
Multiply your number of milligrams by 0.8.
Now you have the number of active milligrams of CBD in your tea.
7 g x 13% CBD Flower = 0.91 g CBD
0.91 x 1000 = 910 mg CBD
9.10 x 0.8 = 728 mg decarboxylated CBD
