Tea and CBD each bring benefits to help you with many health conditions.
Tea and CBD work together well because you get the full combined benefits of stress and anxiety reduction, plus enhanced focus, anti-inflammatory properties, and other health benefits.
Tea is an excellent beverage, whether it’s hot or cold; it’s full of antioxidants and some caffeine. Researchers have shown it to have many health benefits.
Similarly, CBD is a powerful antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-anxiolytic.
So, combining tea and CBD makes sense; therapeutic herbs and spices, plus the benefits of CBD, make for a unique and holistic drink that supports the health of body, mind, and spirit.
If you combine herbal teas and CBD, you may not get the caffeine, but you do get both flavors and healthful properties.
CBD and tea; a blissful match.
CBD tea is a blend of herbal and true-teas with high-CBD strains (such as hemp). Many manufacturers include spices and herbs such as turmeric, ginger, chamomile, and mint in addition to green or black tea. Others treat their tea blends with water-soluble CBD.
Avoid products containing CBD oil because, of course, oil and water don’t mix well, and you’ll miss out on the benefits of the CBD.
Tea with CBD for nausea.
Teas and CBD are good at sorting out an upset stomach or nausea. Peppermint, ginger, lemongrass, and licorice teas are all good for upset stomachs. Mint and ginger are the most common homeopathic remedies for nausea and vomiting. Both have been used as natural remedies for centuries.
CBD acts similarly; research has shown that CBD can treat nausea and vomiting in chemotherapy patients. In the last few years, researchers have investigated CBD’s benefits for treating gastrointestinal issues, and the results are promising.
Managing anxiety with CBD, tea, and sympathy (yes, we went there).
While it may be that a cup of tea at bedtime is calming for many people, the addition of CBD works to help relieve stress and manage anxiety. The addition of herbs such as chamomile or lavender heightens the effects.
Chamomile, holy basil, kava, and hibiscus have calming properties. These herbs work to help the body cope with and normalize body function. CBD works together with these herbs as an anti-inflammatory, lowering blood pressure, inducing relaxation, and boosting mood.
Headache relief is yours with CBD enriched tea.
Whatever the cause of your headache, CBD and tea can provide an effective combination for pain management.
Research into how CBD plays a role in pain relief for migraines, tension headaches, and cluster headaches has been promising. CBD’s effects on the cardiovascular and neurological systems make it an effective remedy for headache pain. Regularly taking CBD can also decrease the frequency of attacks.
In teas, herbal teas, such as chamomile, valerian, peppermint, and skullcap, also positively affect headaches that help reduce the pain and banish the headache.
The combined power of caffeinated teas, with herbal infusions and CBD, makes for a potent remedy for headache pain.
Insomnia is no match for herbal tea and CBD.
CBD and herbal teas can help people with insomnia by relieving anxiety. The calming properties of chamomile, lavender, peppermint, and valerian make useful additions to CBD’s anxiolytic properties, heightening the tea and the CBD’s effect to relax and prepare you for sleep.
CBD affects your body’s central regulatory system, known as the endocannabinoid system, by helping restore balance in several ways, including mood. CBD has been shown to relieve stress in animal studies; the test subjects exhibited fewer behavioral and physiological anxiety symptoms.
If you want to try this delightful combination, these brands may be just your cup o’ tea.
