Both CBD (cannabidiol) and tea have been used as a health aid for hundreds of years. Although tea is widely known for its health benefits, CBD has recently become more recognized for its many positive effects. Mixing both natural remedies is a combination that can alleviate a variety of symptoms, or provide an energy and mood boost.
CBD may help treat the following conditions:
Nausea: Many people use CBD to treat nausea and vomiting, especially with certain types of teas like peppermint or ginger that calm your stomach. Studies have shown that CBD can be effective in providing relief for patients suffering from nausea while undergoing chemotherapy treatments.
Anxiety: The act of drinking tea either in the morning or at night is a calming ritual for some people, and the added benefits of CBD provide additional relief from anxiety and stress. CBD has been known to counteract the sometimes anxiety-inducing effects of THC (the psychoactive compound in marijuana).
Headaches: Headaches are a common problem for many people, and those affected by migraines can suffer from episodes as long as 72 hours. CBD can relieve headache and migraine pain by blocking the neurotransmission to pain receptors in the brain.
Insomnia: CBD can help people suffering from insomnia by reducing anxiety or chronic pain. It can also improve sleep quality and increase overall sleep amount.
Seizures: One of the most amazing uses of CBD has been its treatment of seizures and epilepsy. People suffering from dozens of seizures a day have claimed that their drug-resistant seizures have been dramatically reduced as a result of using CBD.
Nerve pain: Millions of adults in the US deal with chronic pain, and some have been turning to cannabidiol as an alternative treatment instead of harsh pharmaceutical drugs. CBD has been shown to inhibit the body from absorbing anandamide, a compound associated with pain regulation.
Inflammation: Inflammation is the body’s response to harmful stimuli, but some diseases cause the body to attack itself instead. IBD, Arthritis, Crohns Disease, and Multiple Sclerosis are all types of autoimmune disorders that may be alleviated with cannabidiol use.
Even if you do not suffer from any health conditions, CBD tea is an effective way to elevate your mood and relieve stress. It has also been known to prevent allergies and may even lower blood pressure.
There are a few different ways to take CBD including skin creams, oil drops, edibles, and vaping. We recommend ingesting your CBD because it will be released into your system slower and does not irritate your lungs if you are sensitive to respiratory issues. Incorporating CBD into tea gives you the added bonus of a relaxing drink with extra vitamins and antioxidants.
The list of health benefits from tea are also impressive. Everything from reducing inflammation to lowering your risk for heart disease, tea has been known to help many people prevent health issues. Packed with antioxidants and vitamins, tea is excellent at detoxing your body and supplementing nutrients. Depending on the type of tea you drink, there are additional benefits. Green tea is known as a source of natural caffeine and antioxidants, while ginger tea contains vitamin C and amino acids and calms your stomach.
