Supposed Benefits of CBD
CBD, otherwise known as cannabidiol, has many nutritional qualities and health benefits, according to the latest studies. Even if one cannot, in the eyes of the law, praise for the moment its virtues, it is possible to quote the results obtained, to be taken in the conditional.
A natural anxiolytic
Unsurprisingly, different studies tend to prove the life-saving effect of CBD on anxiety.
It relaxes, decreases stress and is even said to have a beneficial effect on people with bipolar disorder.
Logically, it also improves the quality of sleep and makes it easier to fall asleep.
Effective pain reliever
CBD would be effective against chronic pain, such as those caused by fibromyalgia, but also osteoarthritis, rheumatism, multiple sclerosis. It is also a good anti-inflammatory.
A powerful antioxidant
Hemp contains antioxidants. These slow down the aging of cells and thus prevent many diseases, such as cancer, cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases.
Good against nausea
One of the most unknown properties of CBD is its anti-emetic effect.
It is also used in cancer patients to limit the side effects of chemotherapy.
Practical to avoid motion sickness, nausea linked to migraines …
Hemp tea and herbal tea
We therefore know the CBD to inhale (electronic cigarette for example), but not enough food products.
Hemp teas and herbal teas are made from the leaves or stems of hemp, and are completely legal.
They can be found plain or flavored.
Be careful, however, its active ingredients are difficult to dissolve in water. Thus, it is better to either infuse your tea or herbal tea in whole milk, or add a fatty substance such as oil.
Who can drink hemp tea?
the hemp sold in the form of infusions, in our European countries, does not contain THC.
So a hemp tea or tea will not have any psychotropic effects and will not be addictive.
These infusions can therefore be drunk by everyone.
It may come as a surprise, but older people are consuming more and more of it.
A study published in 2018 in the Journal of Medicine shows that the quality of life of people over 65 has been drastically improved after six months of taking CBD.
They felt less chronic pain, easier to fall asleep, all without the unpleasant side effects that some treatments can cause.
Hemp infusions therefore seem indicated regardless of our age, to reduce stress, sleep better, protect against degenerative diseases thanks to the antioxidants they contain.
Another example: young adults during exams can drink it to fight anxiety, get a good night’s sleep, thus helping to improve their performance naturally.
The same goes for work-related stress.
In summary, hemp infusions can be drunk throughout life to accompany us in difficult times, or simply on a daily basis.
Another way to take CBD
Until now, when it comes to consuming CBD, we have had little choice.
We had to either go through an illegal route, with the risks that this entails, or convince our doctor to prescribe it for us, which was not easy.
From now on, we can easily buy herbal teas or tea.
But when to consume them?
The hemp infusions bring together both herbal teas and teas.
If we are already used to drinking it, we can replace our classic herbal tea with a hemp herbal tea.
The famous tea-time is the ideal time to enjoy a hemp tea, which will bring well-being and relaxation.
And that’s good, it’s the time of day when our muscles start to be tense and we feel the accumulated tensions. Thus, migraines, nausea, painful muscles, are frequent at this time of day.
Hemp tea can therefore help you feel better and decompress to be at your best, without the nervousness that coffee, for example, can cause.
Likewise, many of us have gotten into the habit of trying to relax in the evening before going to bed with herbal tea.
Many of them pride themselves on bringing calm and helping to fall asleep.
You can completely replace them with hemp ones.
You can also consume these infusions throughout the day. In the morning instead of our usual drink, in the middle of the morning, in case of peak stress, after eating to soothe and take a little restorative nap.
The possibilities are endless and it only depends on our desires and needs.
For more taste, many recipes exist. While some are content to decorate the hemp leaves, others have had the idea of maximizing the effects of CBD, by adding plants known for their different medicinal properties.
This is the case with chamomile, but also licorice and many others.
