Exploring the Incredible Benefits of CBD Tea

Today, CBD users are fortunate to have a vast range of choices to consume. If you are a lover of regular tea, then CBD tea has to be a satisfying edible for you. The fulfilling tea has gained praise lately with its health benefits and antioxidant properties establishing it as a favorite among CBD user. This piece gives you a rundown of what CBD tea is, how to make it, and the benefits it has for you. 

What is CBD Tea?

Hemp tea and hemp-infused tea has been a popular beverage since the 13th century. Its relaxing properties coupled with the lack of psychoactive side-effects associated with THC has made it a great alternative for individuals who seek to harness the health benefits of the Cannabis Sativa. The concoction can be made from both dried hemp plant or CBD oils as explained hereafter. 

How to Make CBD Tea 

Granted, making CBD tea is a lot more complicated than you probably anticipated. This is especially since not all CBD teas are the same with some being rather technical. Note that CBD tea is commonly available in loose leaf teas where the CBD is already extracted and infused into the tea leaves. 

To make your own CBD tea, you will require water soluble CBD. It is advisable that you go with a full-spectrum brand as this will often have its integrity intact. This oil is sugar-free and has rapidly bioavailable CBD making it the perfect choice when making your CBD tea at home. In case you do not have access to the aforementioned product, you can use dry cannabis or hemp material and add this to hot water. However, you should understand that this does not provide the full potential of the plant as you will only have terpenes in your tea. For this method, you will need: 

  • Freshly ground hemp stems

  • Milk

  • Butter

  • Water

  • Honey

  • Loose leaf chai tea 

Directions

  • Blend the stems, milk and butter until combined

  • Add water with the infused tea leaves into the mixture

  • Cover over low heat and let it simmer

  • Pour into a mug and enjoy it with honey and cinnamon 

If you are in the need of a quick fix or you are not the DIY type, you should consider pre-packaged CBD tea. This provides you with an easier alternative for an easily bioavailable CBD tea. Often these products come in powder form and all you will need is hot water. You will then drop the tea bag into the water and when it is time, you can enjoy your tea infused with CBD oils. 

Pairing of CBD Teas 

It is possible for you to pair your CBD teas with different ingredients for an even more delicious beverage. For instance, you can pair your CBD oil with black teas which introduces robust flavors that are hearty. You can also experiment with green teas which works best if you have an earthly and vegetative palette. Otherwise, consider white teas if you would prefer something richer but gentler. Finally, you can go with fruit and scented loose leaf teas which would make for great accompaniments for desserts and cakes. 

How Much CBD Tea Should You Take?

Just as with all the other CBD products, concentration varies from one brand to the other. It is therefore pertinent for you to note how your body is able to handle about 1000mg of CBD per day. Still, it is advisable to seek advice from your physician on the basic dosage guidelines. This should effectively guide you ensuring that your use of CBD is safe. Additionally, you should be on the lookout for whether any drug you are currently on might be synergized by CBD.
