CBD teas, or CBD infusions, are mainly consumed for relaxation and general wellness. Most consumers drink them in order to help them relax, either during a stressful period or to help them sleep. Incorporating CBD as part as your bedtime ritual can certainly help fight insomnia. But since CBD does not cause grogginess, it can be consumed during the day as well, to provide tension relief and help better manage day-to-day stress. The benefits of CBD teas are countless.
Many CBD cannabis consumers lean more towards smoking as their preferred method of consumption. However, consuming CBD via infusion is a healthier and just as easy alternative.
CBD teas are indeed a much healthier alternative to inhalation (smoking), and provide the benefits of CBD (cannabidiol) and other cannabinoids found in the hemp plant (cannabis).
Opting for CBD tea when choosing amongst CBD products is also an economical and sustainable consumption method, as all parts of the cannabis plant, such as the leaves and CBD flowers, are used to make a CBD tea.
CBD teas range in flavours and caffeine content. Because cannabis contains no caffeine, pure CBD tea is inherently caffeine free and can be classified a herbal tea. However, CBD tea (as in, the cannabis leaves and flowers dried and used for infusions) can be mixed with other teas with or without caffeine to a person's preference. We mix our CBD tea with a variety of tea blends, including mint, bergamot, chamomile flowers, and more. Consumer have the choice between CBD teas or a caffeine free CBD herbal blends.
Unlike cannabis, which is concentrated in THC, CBD is not a drug. It does not present any risk of addiction and would even protect from the development of an addiction. As such, whether for reactive or therapeutic use, preparing a CBD tea is a simple yet effective way to consume cannabis without fear of addiction.

Even for a person who does not suffer from any ailments or concerns, drinking a CBD herbal tea can be a great addition to one's lifestyle. In general, tea is a healthy product to consume for health and general wellness. Tea consumed as part of a self-care ritual can have wonderful benefits on the body and the mind, and any true selfcare practice can be considered good for mental health and happiness.
That said, CBD still provides many physical and physiological benefits, as shown via medical studies and clinical research on CBD. In general, CBD consumption can help with:

Considering all of the natural benefits of CBD, drinking CBD tea is a great and easy way to consume CBD.
CBD tea to soothe pain
Known for its analgesic properties, CBD also acts in an effective way against pain as a real painkiller without having the side effects of drug treatments. Drinking a CBD tea helps relieve joint, muscle and bone pain. In some cases, it would even reduce the intensity of chronic pain related to rheumatism.
CBD tea to facilitates digestion
Tea (including herbal tea) is also very good on the digestive system, and teas such as green tea delivers many antioxidants. So, combined with the positive actions of the herbal tea on the digestive system, the benefits of CBD by infusion can be further accentuated. Consuming CBD in the form of a herbal tea can improve and facilitate digestion, can help relieve cramps and heartburn, can help reduce acid reflux, and can prevent constipation.
CBD tea for anti-inflammatory action
CBD cannabis infusions act as analgesic, antispasmodic, antiemetic (helps reduce nausea and vomiting), neuro-protective (helps protect the brain) and also anti-inflammatory (helps reduce inflammation). Researchers have been able to prove that CBD contains elements capable of relieving symptoms of inflammatory disorders and pain. As a result, CBD can help alleviate symptoms related to certain chronic diseases such as multiple sclerosis, arthritis or irritable bowel syndrome. CBD can also help relieve migraines or pain associated with chronic migraines, but that is more dur to CBD's ability to affect and level serotonin signals in the brain rather that due to its anti-inflammatory properties.
Oftentimes, CBD can be used topically such as in the form of a CBD oil. But drinking CBD tea allows you to consume and metabolise the cannabidiol (CBD) in an easy, tasty way and still be able to benefits from its effects over time when consumed daily.
CBD tea for brain protection
CBD has been shown to have a neuroprotective and, through its effects on the endocannabinoid system, to help reduce neuron excitability by acting on certain brain receptors. CBD has been linked to help better manage and even reduce seizures, in both children and adults, whether these seizures are linked to Dravet syndrome, a neurological disease, or Epilepsy. Because CBD protects the brain, it has been linked to helping prevent and slow down cognitive decline. Thus, CBD can be used to help those suffering from Alzheimer's and Parkinson's too.
CBD rich products like high-potency CBD oil are usually recommended, but they are not always easy to consume for those not used to it and can have a strong taste, depending on preference. CBD tea is a great alternative to CBD oil, allowing you to absorb CBD daily and effectively, which is infinitely more enjoyable if you are already a tea drinker.
CBD tea to reduce stress and anxiety
CBD can also be a good alternative for people who want natural therapies for the conditions that affect them and avoid addictive prescribed medications or the unwanted secondary effects that are often associated with pharmaceuticals. Studies have shown that CBD can help reduce stress, anxiety, manage certain psychiatric illnesses and mental health in general. CBD tea (or hemp tea) can be an aid for certain issues like depression and anxiety. CBD tea can also be helpful for stress, whether chronic or circumstantial. Thanks to the CBD contained in the CBD tea, but also thanks to the ritualistic component of making and serving yourself a daily cup of tea, which can be grounding, meditative and part of a healthy self-care routine.
CBD tea as a sleep aid
There are many studies that suggest that CBD can have an impact on cortisol levels, which is a natural stress hormone in the body. Lowering cortisol levels can help a person relax for better sleep. It is suggested CBD and products like CBD oil and CBD tea can have mild sedative effects in that sense. It is important to note that CBD in any form, including CBD tea, is not an actual sedative, and can be safe to consume in the day, while driving, and does not cause any side effects associated with prescribed sleep aids or grogginess in the morning.
CBD tea can be a great natural addition to your bedtime routine. The calming, ritualistic aspect of herbal tea drinking before bed can be further accentuated by the relaxing properties of CBD. It is important to pick a CBD tea that has no caffeine, such as a pure CBD tea with chamomile flowers, rather than one that has a blend of black tea leaves, for example. Pure CBD tea, if made only with cannabis leaves, has not caffeine, so this is a good type of CBD tea to choose for the night.
