A Step-by-Step Guide to Making CBD-Infused Tea

In recent years, cannabidiol, also known as CBD, has seen a significant surge in popularity, and one of the most common ways for people to reap the benefits of CBD is by drinking tea that contains the compound. In this detailed walkthrough, we will discuss what CBD tea is, the benefits it offers and provide you with recipes that are straightforward to follow so that you can make your CBD-infused tea at home.

What is CBD Tea?

CBD tea is a beverage that combines the traditional health benefits of tea with the possible medicinal effects of CBD. Cannabidiol, more commonly known as CBD, is a natural extract that comes from the flowers and leaves of the cannabis plant. It does not produce a high like THC because it contains no psychoactive properties. Incorporating CBD into tea makes for a hassle-free and pleasurable method of ingesting the compound, which has a long history of application in treating various health issues.

Benefits of CBD Tea

According to research, cannabidiol (CBD) interacts with several regions in the brain and body that regulate pain, mood, and sleep. CBD has garnered attention for possibly acting as a natural anxiolytic, a sleep-inducing agent, and a pain-relieving agent. CBD tea transforms into a potent wellness beverage when combined with the numerous advantages of drinking tea, such as the stimulation of metabolic rate, the provision of antioxidants, and the enhancement of overall well-being.

How to Use CBD Tea

The dosing of CBD tea depends on factors like your individual needs and the concentration of CBD in the oil. A typical recommended dose for first-time users is between 20 and 40 mg per day. However, starting with a small dosage, such as five to ten milligrams, is best to adjust as needed based on your body's response. Choosing a high-quality full spectrum CBD oil and researching proper dosing is essential.  Tinctures work well as a flexible dose is easily accomplished. 

CBD tea can be enjoyed at any time of day, depending on your preferences and desired effects. For example, enjoying a cup of CBD tea infused with relaxing herbs like lavender and chamomile before bedtime can be beneficial if you're seeking better sleep. If you're looking to manage anxiety throughout the day while maintaining a boost in energy, a caffeinated blend like Chai Love or Fruity Paradise can be a great choice.
