Recipe: Healing Herbal Heat (That’s Buzzing With Honey)
Forget the Stash, pass the tea-smoker’s tea, please.
In 79 CE, Pliny the Elder wrote that cannabis root can be boiled in water for a tea to relieve joint cramps and pain. Today, while the flower of the plant gets all the attention, the roots and stems are still useful as an herbal tea.
If you’re growing your own cannabis (or somebody you know is), collect the stems and roots of the plants at harvest time.
