How to brew hemp tea to extract its most valuable properties?
Brewing hemp tea is very simple. All we need to do is follow the following rules:
For one cup of tea, we need about 1.5 g of dried tea, which we pour over hot but not boiling water, as it will lose its health-promoting properties. It is best to wait about 2-3 minutes after the water has boiled. After this time, pour in the dried herb and let it steep for 5 minutes, then strain the whole thing. It is advisable to add milk or a few drops of oil to the drink, as the fats will enable the body to better absorb the beneficial substances. Exceeding the recommended dose of 200 ml of infusion per day, may cause drowsiness and heaviness.
CBD combined with tea will have little effect on the body, as CBD is fat-soluble. However, this doesn't change the fact that hemp tea is great during cold season due to its content of acidic forms of cannabinoids such as CBDa, Cbga, etc., which are water-soluble and have a great anti-inflammatory effect. There is one condition - CBD is poured into water at a temperature of about 70 degrees. This ensures that the acidic forms will not decarboxylate. Besides, such hemp tea also contains vitamins and minerals you can brew one serving several times.
How to brew hemp tea for a child?
The way to prepare CBD tea for a child, will not differ significantly from traditional brewing. However, it is important to remember not to exceed a dose of 2.5% mg CBD initially. If necessary, this can be increased over time. Also note that the longer the cannabis tea is brewed, the stronger and therefore more bitter it will be.
Children usually have quite sophisticated taste buds, so make sure the tea is weaker than for an adult. If necessary, you can sweeten it with honey or throw in your favourite fruit. And don't forget to add fat for better absorption of the beneficial substances from the dry tea.
