What is CBD tea good for?

The CBD extract from the cannabis plant or hemp plant (Cannabis sativa) stimulates your body’s endocannabinoid system. 

This helps regulate sleep, reduce anxiety, revitalise sore muscles, and boost gut health. 

Imagine the benefits of CBD tea paired with the health benefits of chamomile tea

8 Terrific Tips For Delicious CBD Tea

Follow these handy tips to make a tasty cup of CBD infused tea: 

  1. Add a sweetener, like simple syrup, honey, or regular sugar. 
  2. If you aren’t using dairy, add a lemon peel to give your tea a fresh citrus taste.
  3. Avoid “skim” or “lite” dairy products in your CBD tea. CBD oil doesn’t mix well with lite dairy products, decreasing bioavailability. Instead, choose full-fat milk or cannabis butter to increase the bioavailability. 
  4. If you want a greater bioavailability percentage, use a water-soluble CBD oil. 
  5. Instead of milk or butter, add some creamer. A dollop of cream goes exceptionally well with green tea and black tea. 
  6. If you’re vegan, use dairy alternatives such as hemp or coconut milk, rice, soy, or a spoon of coconut oil in your cannabis tea. 
  7. Don’t cold brew your CBD tea! Heat is required to extract the beneficial compounds of cannabis. 
  8. Freeze your CBD tea into ice cubes and add it to your favourite summer drink!

2 FAQs About CBD Tea

Here are two commonly asked questions about CBD tea:

1. Can I use a CBD flower to make CBD tea?

Yes! You can:

  • Add a CBD flower to your favourite loose leaf tea mix using a tea infuser or strainer. 
  • Brew CBD-rich cannabis on its own like regular tea. 

However, this doesn’t extract all the beneficial compounds. So you won’t experience the full benefits of CBD. 

Note: CBD flowers are illegal in the UK regardless of their origin or THC content.

2. What is the difference between hemp tea and CBD tea?

Hemp tea (made from hemp flower) can contain traces of THC, whereas CBD tea is usually THC-free.

In the UK, it’s illegal to possess, grow, distribute, sell cannabis, or purchase CBD products that contain the cannabinoid THC (tetrahydrocannabinol.) 

Always shop for a THC-free CBD product to add to your next cup of CBD tea.
