Everyone enjoys a nice warm tea when they wake up, but once you infuse it with CBD, you will like it even more! Learning how to make CBD tea is way easier than it seems. This article will teach you how to infuse CBD into tea, how to properly dose it, and where to get the ingredients to make the recipe.
It is fairly expensive to buy premade CBD tea packets, so we wanted to show people how they can save some money by making CBD tea themselves. There are two main benefits of making the tea yourself. The first benefit is the tea becomes much more affordable, the second benefit is you can control the potency to fit your preferences.
We recommend calculating the potency of the infused tea prior to making it. This will allow you to adjust the recipe so the tea contains the amount of CBD you want! Scroll to the bottom of this article and use the potency calculator to find a dosage you like.

CBD Tea Dosage Guide
We always recommend that you calculate the potency of your homemade edibles prior to making them. Then you will be able to adjust and alter the recipe until it fits your preferences. To find the potency of your infused tea, you will need to know the amount of CBD isolate used.
To calculate the potency of the infused tea, measure the amount of CBD isolate used in the infusion. The package the CBD comes in should have guidelines and directions on how to do this. We use a scale to measure the amount of CBD the recipe needs. This method is more precise and we can get the exact dosage we need. CBD is measured in milligrams (mg), so if the scale reads 0.1g (grams) that is equivalent to 100mg.
If you need a scale to measure the CBD isolate for the infusion, this is the scale we recommend: here is a link to the scale we use which can be purchased on Amazon!
