CBD is a natural compound found and extracted from specific hemp strains. Contrary to THC, it has no psychoactive or hallucinogenic effects. CBD is a non-addictive, non-toxic and non-lethal compound.
You can ingest CBD in various different forms. We have already written about the CBD oil, hemp seeds, and juiced cannabis. In case you enjoy vaporisation, you can also get your hands on CBD e-liquids. Now let’s take a look at hemp tea.
So now, let’s take a look at hemp tea.
Tea is an ancient drink originating from Asia. Traditionally it is prepared with tea leaves, however, steeped hemp leaves can do the job just as well.
CBD hemp tea has a brownish colour which is caused by plants growing mature longer and by harvesting at the time when the CBD content is at its highest level. Don’t worry about THC (the cannabis compound getting you high) because hemp contains no more than 0.2 %. At this small concentration, you will not feel any kind of “high” after consuming the tea.
How to prepare the hemp tea?
Preparation of hemp tea is very similar to any other tea. Take 1 teaspoon of dry hemp leaves per cup and pour hot water over it. Let it steep (soak in water) between 2 and 5 minutes, depending on how strong you want the tea.
Hemp tea has a very pleasant taste, like a herbal tea but as with any other tea, you can modify it to taste by sweetening it, adding milk or a squeeze of lemon.
