Tea joins coffee as the most popular hot beverages around the world, and there’s so many different types of teas for people to enjoy. Standards like Earl Grey or Orange Pekoe will be found in cupboards or on counter tops all over the world. CBD tea? It’s likely never going to be as popular, and perhaps you’ve never heard of it. However, as cannabis is now increasingly legal across North America it’s equally likely that it will become more well known.
Now some of you may not be familiar with CBD (cannabidiol). It’s one of the cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant, but it’s important to know that it does not have any psychoactive properties. To put it plainly, CBD will not impair you or make you ‘high’ in any way. THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) is an entirely different cannabinoid in the plant, and it’s the one that intoxicates you.
The benefits of CBD are exclusively therapeutic. And now, CBD extracts are taken from the plant and incorporated into many different consumable products. These products allow people to gain the benefits of CBD without experiencing any of the intoxication that you get from THC in cannabis.
CBD Tea Benefits
So what’s the appeal of CBD tea then? Why would someone choose to have a supply of CBD tea bags? Easy answer – CBD is effective for reducing the severity of a number of mental and physical health conditions. For starters, it’s a very capable all-natural pain reliever, while many people insist CBD’s number one potential is for the relief of anxiety and depression.
The list of CBD tea benefits extends much longer than that. It can also help with:
- Improved cardiovascular function
- Relief of cancer treatment and chemotherapy symptoms like nausea, vomiting, and pain
- Prevention of diabetes
- Reduction of psychotic symptoms in people with schizophrenia or other severe mental health conditions
- Reducing the severity of acne and other skin-breakout conditions
- Reducing substance cravings for individuals recovering from addiction
Among many other benefits.
In addition, part of the further appeal of CBD and CBD tea is that CBD also has neuroprotective properties. This means protecting against degenerative neurological conditions like epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, and multiple sclerosis, among others.
As for side effects, there are only a few of them and most won’t be a cause for serious concern for most people. CBD tea side effects are:
- Appetite and / or weight changes
