A lot of people drink tea, it’s a time-honored tradition that has survived the test of time. It’s also an excellent way to relax and enjoy some quality “me” time. But did you know that there are different types of CBD teas? A CBD-infused tea is not only good for your health but can also help you unwind at the end of a long day. In this article, we will discuss how to make CBD Tea as well as what benefits they provide.
CBD Tea Info And What Are Its Benefits?
CBD is short for cannabidiol, a compound found in the hemp plant. It contains no psychoactive properties and has been legalized throughout the United States and some parts of Europe and Asia. CBD tea is made from hemp and does not give you the same effects as smoking pot. However, it can still provide numerous benefits to your health. Here’s a list of some general health benefits:
- Suppresses your appetite
- Helps you relax and reduces stress
- Improves your mood
- Promotes better sleep
- Regulates your metabolism
- Boosts your immune system
- Can reduce stress and anxiety
- Has anti-inflammatory properties that help reduce pain as well as headaches
- Promotes cardiovascular health by reducing high blood pressure
CBD tea can be used to treat certain medical conditions such as insomnia, autism, diabetes, chronic pain, schizophrenia, nausea, and many others. With all these benefits, CBD tea is growing in popularity and has gained support from health experts. Drinking this beverage can be habit-forming, so be sure to use it responsibly.
How Should CBD And Tea Be Combined?
There are several methods of mixing CBD with your tea, here are the main ones.
1. Mixing Directly with water
This is one of the most common ways to mix CBD into your tea. It’s easy, all you have to do is put some water on the stove and bring it to a boil. Once it’s ready, take it off the stove and let it sit for about 5 minutes. You can then add CBD oil or CBD tinctures to the hot water. Stir well, let it cool down slightly before drinking.
2. Dissolved in butter or oil
Like many people, you can simply dissolve CBD into butter or oil. It’s a good idea to use these ingredients if you plan on making a lot of tea since it’ll be easier to mix large quantities with them rather than using straight CBD. This method works well when making infusions, as butter and oil can help extract the compounds from the CBD.
3. Caramelized/infused coconut oil
Caramelizing or infusing coconut oil will help you dissolve a large quantity of CBD into a single cup of tea. Once it’s done, all you have to do is take some leaves from your favorite tea and combine them with your infused coconut oil. Then, heat a pan and put some water to boil. Once it’s done, add the tea leaves to the coconut cayenne-infused water. Let it soak for about 5 minutes before straining out the leaves and drinking your CBD-infused tea.
Recipes for CBD-Infused Tea
Now that you know the benefits of drinking CBD tea, it’s time to learn how to make one. Here are two easy recipes that you can follow:
Basic Tea Recipe (CBD Oil-Infused)
