Tea is a popular drink all over the world. It also gained in popularity with the younger crowds with the arrival of sweeter new flavors. One thing is certain this waive of interest for tea isn’t going anywhere. A new trend is slowly appearing, and it is CBD infused drinks more specifically teas.
If you have CBD at home what is the best way to combine it with tea?
Tea can be served hot or iced. Depending on how the tea is served will affect how well the CBD will mixt with the beverage.
CBD will blend more easily in hot liquids. Although CBD is fat-soluble, and tea is made with water.
Meaning it won't mix perfectly. An easy thing to do to have an enhanced infusion is to add milk or cream. Because dairy contains a lot of fat molecule the CBD will bind to them and fuse with the tea evenly.
The variety of tea you use can also alter the effect of CBD. If combined to a black, oolong or green tea, CBD is a little bit unreasonable, because they contain caffeine.
However, similarly to the interaction between CBD and THC, CBD, when associated with caffeine, can provide an anxiety-free energy push.
On the other hand, herbal tea will have a more cohesive marriage with CBD.
Herbal teas such as chamomile or lavender do not contain any caffeine and provide calmness instead. When mixed with CBD, both of their calming and stress relief side effect can act as a wonderful natural sleep-aid.
CBD powder is another option, which will integrate hot tea very well. Unfortunately, you might encounter difficulties with iced tea. The best option for a CBD infused iced tea is a CBD infused syrup. Once added to the drink, through the syrup, CBD will evenly spread out in the drink.
If all of those instructions seem too complicated for you do not despair. An abundance of other choices is available. More and more brands of CBD are launching their CBD infused teabag giving you the option of a one-step do all approach.
CBD teas can be drunk at any time throughout the day. Having said that, depending on when you had your last meal can affect how fast the CBD gets absorbed in the bloodstream. Thus how filled is your stomach will affect the time before you feel its effect. It is better to have eaten a little something before to accelerate the results but even if you ingest CBD on an empty stomach its effectiveness won't be altered.
Finally, CBD teas are a great way to have your dose of CBD every day in a "tastier" package. Taste is very personal some might prefer to use CBD sublingually others like to infuse it into a tea. Both manners are good, find what works for you.
