CBD tea is just like regular tea – just with a little CBD sprinkled in! CBD, aka cannabidiol, is a substance naturally found in hemp plants.
The hemp plants used for CBD tea and other supplements are naturally richer in CBD and the psychoactive THC will have been removed to at least acceptable levels.
That’s what makes CBD very different to the illegal sort of hemp marijuana, that people smoke.
CBD tea effects have not been fully explored yet, but different teas can be pretty powerful in their own right. Then adding CBD and its own potential benefits, you can see why someone would be at least curious to try it.
It depends, some hemp teas naturally contain CBD, but the dosage is not always defined. Other brands use bioavailable CBD extracts with dosages like 3mg of CBD per tea bag.
Always check the label of each individual tea as the dosages will likely vary.
That’s not really something that can be answered right now as there is not enough experimental date to analyse around the efficacy of CBD extracts, let alone CBD tea specifically.
Fancy giving it a go? Here are 5 high-quality CBD tea bags, all with different flavours.
If you already have your tea routine down and don’t want to abandon your regular brews, using a CBD food enhancer could be ideal for you.
You simply add the CBD enhancer to your favourite cup of tea to take it to a whole brew level.
