Traditional tea is an ancient drink originating from Asia. Normally it is prepared with tea leaves, however, steeped hemp leaves can produce a satisfying hemp tea also.
Hemp tea has a greenish colour which is caused by plants growing to full maturity and then harvested at the time when the CBD (cannabidiol) 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 hemp tea.
Hemp teas made from the finest flowers and trim from hemp plants are rich in antioxidants and cannabidiol (CBD).
CBD or cannabidiol is one of the most prevalent cannabinoids found in the trichomes of the female cannabis plant and hemp. It is non-psychoactive, non-toxic and doesn’t have side effects. Because CBD is an oil it is not water soluble, so it’s recommended to drink hemp tea with a dash milk, as the fat content in the milk with helps blend the oil into the drink.
