Terpene Tea Spritzer
One of my favorite things about cannabis is the terpenes!!!
That orange or piney aroma you smell when you break up your buds... are terpenes! They are made up of carbon chains and isoprene units- but that's some geeky science stuff. You could think of them as essential oils...like tea tree or eucalyptus. Linalool is found in lavender, Limonene in citrus, myrcene in mangos, and all our found in different strains of cannabis.
Knowing this, you can use the power of terpenes in your food to heal!
Here's is a recipe for a refreshing terpene cocktail you can make medicated, with or without alcohol.
- 1/4 cup Green tea
- 1/4 cup club soda for bubbles
- 1/4 White wine
- 1 TBSP Tincture
- Splash of OJ
- Frozen Strawberries as ice cubes
- Orange slices for garnish
- Lavender flowers
