Cannabidiol or CBD products are gaining immense popularity for providing countless benefits. In the market, you will find several alternatives to take CBD but the most convenient way is consuming it through tea. So, here, we will learn more about CBD tea.
What exactly is CBD tea? Is it different from Hemp Tea?
You can consider the CBD tea as an herbal tea as it is usually made up of herbal ingredients. There are high chances that you will also encounter the term – hemp tea. It is something which has a long history having its roots in Asia.
Both of the terms are often used interchangeably but only a few know that they are distinct from each other in many ways.
While hemp tea is made from the actual hemp flower and goes through no chemical extraction process, on the other hand, the CBD tea is made using high energy and chemically extracted CBD content.
You will find CBD tea is just rich in CBD and if you are looking forward to drawing more benefits from this tea, you can go for different flavored CBD teas which contain ingredients like chamomile, turmeric and matcha.
Is CBD tea safe to drink?
Even though it just contains CBD ingredient of the hemp plant, many people hesitate to buy it thinking that anything made from hemp will make them high. This is not the case. Scientifically, CBD is a substance which doesn’t produce any psychoactive effects and therefore, it is completely safe to consume it.
Why should I choose to drink CBD tea?
The first thing is that CBD tea is gentler on the system when compared with CBD oil because CBD tea is a more diluted form for consumption. However, this will take a few minutes to drink which is slower than putting CBD oil under your tongue. While oil can have a very strong, concentrated and earthy flavor, the tea can have a very mild taste if you brew it like a green tea.
How to prepare CBD tea at home?
The process of making CBD tea is quite simple. All you need to do is turn on the kettle for brewing as you normally would do for other kinds of tea. Whether you have bought CBD tea in a loose-leaf variety or handy little tea bags, you can use it in the same way as you would do with a fruit tea – which means with no milk-like products unless you fancy that.
If you find the tea a little bitter for you, you can always add a spoonful of honey to sweeten the taste of tea. In case you like to have sharpness to it, you can also add a squeeze of lemon juice to it. So, how the taste of tea will be –depends on your taste preferences.
By now, you can easily notice that preparing CBD tea is easier and requires no special ingredient to make it. Plus, it offers you all the advantage that CBD has. So, include CBD tea in your daily regime and make yourself more active, fit and healthy.
