People have used cannabis and herbal teas for hundreds of years to promote health, healing and relaxation. Combining the active ingredients in cannabis (such as the cannabinoid CBD) with therapeutic herbs and spices produces a unique holistic remedy that can alleviate a variety of symptoms, boost energy and improve mood. This is our core focus at the Apothecary: blending full spectrum, intelligently sourced CBD tea with a focus on overall health.
So what health benefits can you expect when trying CBD tea?
1. Reducing Nausea
Herbal teas with peppermint extract, ginger, lemongrass, and licorice have been used as a natural remedy for bellyaches for centuries. Many people also rely on CBD to treat nausea and upset stomach. The combination of CBD with stomach-soothing herbs like peppermint can provide relief for people patients undergoing chemotherapy treatment, or those with the occasional upset tummy.
2. Reducing Anxiety
The simple ritual of drinking tea in the morning or in the evening before bed is a calming practice for many people. When you add in high-quality herbs and CBD, something magical happens.
Chamomile, Tulsi (aka Holy Basil), Kava, and Hibiscus, for example, all have unique calming properties. From general relaxation to lowering blood pressure, these herbs work as adaptogens — natural solutions to help the body adapt to stress and normalize bodily functions. CBD works as an anti-inflammatory line of defense, further lowering blood pressure and boosting mood.
3. Treating Headaches
Looking at a screen too long? Head pounding from not enough sleep and too much caffeine? For people perpetually plagued by headaches or migraines, CBD offers a welcome relief. Drinking CBD tea can help block the neurotransmission to pain receptors in the brain, stopping a debilitating headache in its tracks.
In teas, herbs like peppermint, chamomile, and Valerian & Skullcap all have unique properties to aid in headaches, including anti-inflammation, pain relief, and antispasmodic properties.
4. Reducing Insomnia
Nothing is worse than tossing and turning all night, waiting to drift off. Stop suffering and start sipping! CBD tea can help those suffering from insomnia by reducing anxiety and receiving body aches and pains so you can relax and get a good night’s sleep. Look to calming blends like Chamomile and Peppermint for herbal backup.
5. Alleviating Chronic Pain
Millions of people live with chronic pain every day. More and more people are turning to CBD as an alternative to harsh, potentially-damaging pharmaceutical drugs. CBD has been shown to inhibit the body’s absorption of anandamide, a compound associated with pain regulation. With CBD, anti-inflammatory herbs increase this affect, providing relief for ailments such as nerve pain, fibromyalgia, arthritis, and more.
6. Reducing Inflammation
Inflammation is the body’s natural response to harmful stimuli, but some diseases cause the body to respond with excess inflammation. IBD, arthritis, Chrons disease and multiple sclerosis are all types of autoimmune disorders associated with inflammation. Because CBD is a natural anti-inflammatory, many people who suffer from inflammatory diseases rely on CBD for a naturopathic treatment.
CBD & Your Health
Even if you don’t suffer health problems, CBD tea is a fantastic and effective way to boost your mood and relieve stress. While there are many ways to take CBD, ingesting CBD in tea form releases the cannabidiol into your system more slowly and won’t irritate your lungs if you are sensitive to respiratory issues. Plus, incorporating CBD into tea gives you the added bonus of drinking a relaxing mug of herbal tea. Packed with antioxidants and vitamins, tea detoxifies your body while providing you valuable nutrients your body might be craving.
