CBD Tea as Relaxation Therapy
If you’re all stressed out, maybe having difficulty sleeping or relaxing, we may have some good news for you. People are turning to CBD tea for assistance in relaxation, and there have been positive reports. But what, exactly, is CBD tea, or CBD for that matter? Read on to find out more.
What are the effects of CBD?
The major effect of CBD on humans is that of relaxation and even sleepiness. It also counteracts the unwanted effects of THC such as increased anxiety, intoxication, and disordered thought patterns.
How do you take CBD?
CBD can be taken into the body in various ways, such as inhaling cannabis smoke or vapor, by mouth, or as an aerosol spray, you can use inside your cheek.
CBD often comes in oil form that excludes THC, but also in a cannabis extract where CBD is the dominant cannabinoid. It’s also available on prescription in liquid form, as well as in capsules. But an increasingly popular way of consuming CBD is in the form of a tea.
Why CBD tea?
A hot cup of tea is the drink of choice for many people, often as a way of relaxing and distressing. But drinking a hot cup of hemp tea that’s been infused with CBD is an even more relaxing way of settling you down. CBD is said to be able to relieve pain, so next time you have a headache, try a cup of hemp tea instead of reaching for the painkillers.
The benefit of putting CBD in tea is that it works quickly to calm you down and relax your entire body as you drink a tasty hot drink. Drinking a hot drink can alone help with relaxation, but when combined with the relaxing properties of CBD, the effect is heightened without any psychoactive effects.
In other words, you’re not going to get ‘high.’ On the contrary, your nervous system will start relaxing soon after you begin drinking your tea. Your digestive system will feel relaxed, and soon you’ll feel a sense of calm wash over you. And the good news is that it’s not doing you any harm at all.
How to make CBD tea
CBD oil doesn’t taste great on its own, but when added to your favorite tea it can taste quite pleasant. You also have the added association between relaxation and drinking tea, which is very comforting. If you’re trying to relax, it’s probably a good idea to avoid tea that contains caffeine, which could cause insomnia and agitation. That means that black tea and even green teas should be avoided.
Redbush tea is a great choice as it is completely caffeine-free and full of antioxidants, and chamomile tea is the perfect relaxer. You might, however, prefer something fruity such as berry-infused tea, or peppermint tea which is wonderfully refreshing. Another great way to enjoy CBD tea is to take a thumb-sized piece of fresh root ginger and slice off two thin slices. Steep the ginger slices in boiling water, and add your CBD oil before enjoying.
Ginger is excellent for the digestive system and good for warming you up and making you feel cozy. It’s also great for when you’ve got a cold or the ‘flu. One newly-popular way of adding CBD to your favorite tea is by adding CBD oil to honey and using it to sweeten your tea. Don’t add the honey while the brew is hot or some of its nutritional benefits will be destroyed.
If you’re fond of lattes (and who isn’t?), you might like to try adding some coconut oil to your CBD-infused tea for a deliciously rich hot drink that’ll have you relaxed in no time.
If you choose to do so, you can otherwise buy a wide variety of different CBD tea brands. It’s enjoyable to try different ones if you’re not into making your own.
What effects can you expect
Really, it’s all down to good old relaxation. As the world seems to spin faster and faster, and we have less and less time to do more and more, it’s important to find a way to wind down and relax after a hard day. And what better way than with a cup of tea with CBD?
Tea is a health-promoting drink anyway, and with the addition of CBD, you’ll be doing your body good and relaxing both mind and body. If you’re looking for pain relief, reduced anxiety and a good night’s sleep, CBD tea is worth a try.
When should you drink it
If you’re extremely stressed, start the day with a relaxing cup of CBD-infused tea and mark the end of the working day with a cup of tea when you get home. The ritual of tea-drinking can, in itself, work to relax you, but the addition of CBD makes the effect more powerful.
