Maybe you find it as Bizarre Subject, but I believe it is quite interesting, as it is pretty sure and an eye-opener too that one can find entire Chinese families enjoying Smoke of green tea leaves burning in a Hookah, and in the same time, Tea Smoking Was Not Mentioned Illegal anywhere and so there are a lot of people, even the teenagers who inhale burnt tea leaves to look cool.
If we do Quick Search, we will see that there is a Bit Of Information online about the healthful effects of Smoking tea leaves like :
- Lowered anxiety.

A lot of people ask, if Tea Smoking is Ok! And as I Tried It Out 25 years ago, I will try to highlight some facts based on my experience:
- Could it help you quit smoking?
NO / If you want to quit smoking, the best way is to quit smoking.
- Does it relax you?
I felt more numb than relaxed.
- Does it get you high?
No, Theanine ( Which is the form found in tea leaves ), do not cause hallucinatory effects, even in very high doses.
Green tea is an agonist of the CB1 receptor in the brain, cannabinoid 1. This is the same receptor that is also a receptor for THC delta 9, found in Cannabis.
Tea Smoking would produce different effects at the cannabinoid receptors. In effect, just because compounds in tea may interact with these receptors, doesn’t mean it’s getting you High.
- Is it safe?
It’s not dangerous in the immediate, harmful to your health in the long run.
- Is it good for you?
Tea Smoking may have a direct pathway to the bloodstream and can lead to nausea and dizziness, this isn’t the goal of good tea. Keep in mind; It’s not clear study that Theanine can be absorbed when inhaled in the form of smoke !
because it tastes good and healthy for you.
Do not try to burn it, to create new set of chemical reactions! Just drink it and if you want to get real benefits try to drink the #Weed Tea, one of the world’s oldest medicines, used for thousands of years across huge geographical areas.
Smoke = Love + Peace
