A delicious way to include CBD oil into your daily regimen is by preparing CBD tea. You can add some drops of CBD oil to your favorite tea, coffee, smoothie, etc. Just like CBD coffee, CBD tea is a mix of CBD extracts and loose tea leaves. CBD tea is an awesome way to receive your cannabidiol dose daily in a soothing beverage. You can brew CBD tea using CBD tinctures, ready-made tea bags, CBD buds, and more.
Here, we will show you how to make CBD tea, its benefits, and why tea is such an effective way to dose CBD.
What Is CBD Tea?
CBD tea is a combination of CBD oil and tea leaves. CBD (Cannabidiol) is a plant molecule or compound present in the leaves of the cannabis plant. CBD tea is a hot beverage that is made by soaking buds from a high-strain of the cannabis plant. When you brew this medicinal beverage, the boiling process segregates the cannabinoids and terpenes from the plant molecules and makes it easier for you to intake.
You can savor CBD tea both cold and hot, either as a simmering beverage during the cold season or as a soothing and refreshing cool drink during the hot summer months.
CBD tea is present in tea bags, but can also be brewed by mixing a few drops of CBD oil with any type of tea – green tea, mint tea, or hibiscus tea.
The natural oil is not soluble in water, therefore fat is generally added to improve assimilation of oil when added to beverages and food.
How To Make CBD Tea
An interesting aspect of making CBD tea is blending and matching it to prepare your desired flavor profiles. You can choose from thousands of herbs that offer you limitless choices.
1. Preparing Tea Using CBD Tinctures
CBD tincture is possibly the simplest way to add hemp or cannabis to your tea.
Simply add several drops of CBD tincture to tea or hot water. The best option can be alcohol-based CBD tinctures, but CBD oils can also be effective if you stir your brew several times while drinking.
You can also use CBD oil if it is the only thing that is available, although you have to stir it regularly.
- 1 cup water
- CBD tincture
- Loose Tea leaves (green, black, or herbal)
- Pour water into a pot. Heat over medium-high and let it boil
- Once the water is at a boil, take off the pot from the heat. Put the tea leaves inside the pot and cover them with a lid.
- Let it steep for approximately 5 minutes
- Strain the tea leaves
- Add the CBD tincture and stir
- Wait for some minutes. Serve and relish!
2. How To Brew CBD Tea
Your preferred variety of tea which can be black tea, fruit tea, green tea, tea bags, or loose leaf tea can be used. Essentially, loose-leaf leads to the best final result.
- Full-spectrum CBD oil of high quality
- Milk or butter
- Hot water
- Boil water using a saucepan or kettle
- Mix the tea inside the mug
- Pour hot water over the tea
- Let it brew as recommended on the packaging, or according to your normal tea habits
- Stir in butter or milk. This is essential even if you are using green tea, as CBD requires fatty substances for its absorption.
- Include one drop or more of CBD oil and mix well
The above recipe offers you a flavored, hot beverage with an excellent CBD dose.
3. CBD Prepared From CBD – Rich Cannabis
- 1 teabag of CBD tea (ready-made or ground CBD flower blended with tea)
- 1 lemon peel
- 1 stick of cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 cup hot water
- Based on your preference: add cream, honey, sugar to taste
Mix the honey, lemon, and cinnamon stick inside a mug. Put the ready-made tea bag in the mug. As an alternative, grind up a few CBD flowers and add to your favorite tea, then place the mixture into a tea infuser, or again with the tea bag and put inside your mug. Fill with water that is hot but not boiling. Let it soak for 5 minutes. The steeping time to be followed will differ according to the type of tea being used.
- Take off the tea bag or strainer
- Add honey, sugar or cream to taste and stir
- Serve and relish!
Effects of CBD Tea
When you intake CBD tea, users generally report a relaxing sensation that does not hamper normal functioning. But this can differ from one individual to another. To watch its effects, begin from a low dose, observe how you feel, and gradually increment it if desired.
The lasting period of its effect also varies according to the individual. Weight, previous CBD experience, metabolism, and whether you have consumed food or not, all have an effect on the duration. Typically, the effects of CBD when consumed orally can remain for anywhere around 2-5 hours.
If you prefer to optimize the potential of the cannabidiol compounds in a tea bag, you can add fat. The CBD molecules stick to fats, which helps your body to assimilate them. Adding milk, cream or any “fat” to your cup of tea augments the benefits you receive from drinking it. Cannabutter can also be added to tea to prepare a more calorically dense beverage that consists of abundant levels of CBD.
A more convenient alternative is to mix several drops of CBD tincture of a high-strength to an already-prepared tea.
Health Benefits of CBD Tea
Tea is a savory way to administer CBD and can be the best choice for those who are not very eager about vaping or smoking.
Works As An Anxiolytic
The relaxant, anxiety-relieving properties of CBD can help in improving sleep disruptions. The soothing effect of drinking CBD tea before going to bed can be enhanced by adding peppermint, melatonin, or chamomile to the brew.
Promotes Healthy Skin
Cannabinoids, such as CBD, have been found to display strong antioxidant properties. This makes CBD effective in combating free radical molecules that harm cellular structures, causing wrinkles and various early signs of aging.
Black tea and green tea contain antioxidants known as flavonoids (which is also present in cannabis). Thus, regularly drinking CBD-infused tea can be effective in retaining a glowing and youthful complexion.
Can Relax An Upset Stomach
CBD can help if one is experiencing nausea resulting from an upset stomach. Research published in the British Journal Of Pharmacology indicates that management of the endocannabinoid system can help because of the indirect stimulation of serotonin receptors.
Provides Neuroprotective Effects
CBD has possible therapeutic effects with regard to neuropsychiatric ailments. CBD can attenuate brain damage connected with neurodegenerative and ischemic conditions. It can also display positive effects by mitigating psychotic and anxiety-related behaviors. Besides, CBD influences synaptic plasticity and promotes neurogenesis. The mechanisms behind these processes are still unclear, but appear to involve several pharmacological targets.
Can Treat A Range Of Medical Conditions
CBD tea is also called hemp tea and may provide medicinal benefits to people, depending on the tea and the individual. This phytocannabinoid is said to be beneficial in pain relief from muscle and joint stiffness as well as arthritis, chronic pain, depression and anxiety, etc.
