Kombucha is a fermented, lightly sweetened tea-based drink that dates back centuries and is said to have a handful of wellness benefits, due to being rich in probiotics and enzymes. Combined with the health benefits of cannabis, it becomes a delightful treat that is sure to please.
The Leafly Guide to Pairing Tea and Cannabis
To ensure success, create your cannabis kombucha using a high-quality SCOBY, organic cane sugar, and a cannabis-infused tea that is oil free. Many cannabis teas on the market are infused via some method involving cannabis oil, so be sure to avoid oils or honey in your brew, as they can interact negatively with the SCOBY and ruin the kombucha. For this reason, we have chosen a great, oil-free cannabis black tea for the following recipe. Combined with the necessary ingredients and a flavor of your choice, you’ll have a delicious homemade cannabis kombucha in as little as 7–14 days.
