What kind of CBD teas are there?
There are many different types of CBD and hemp teas. The typical hemp tea consists of leaves, stems and buds, all of which have been dried. As a rule, CBD teas contain around 2-4% CBD.
The teas can also contain many different ingredients. Terpenes, flavonoids, hemp seeds (which in turn contain fatty acids) or other cannabinoids such as CBG are often found in the teas.
Many manufacturers also supplement their CBD tea with mint, goji berries or other fruits, which ensures a good taste.
What side effects can occur?
It’s important to know that side effects can occur when taking CBD. Even if these are reported to have limited effects and occur infrequently.
The following side effects are known:
- Dry mouth
All in all, according to current knowledge, CBD is considered safe on the relatively rare occasions side effects are reported they do tend to be quite weak.
Where can you buy the hemp teas in the UK?
Hemp teas can be bought in the UK from many different manufacturers or suppliers. You can either buy your tea in an online shop or in a local shop.
Because of the legal requirements there are now providers who do not sell CBD tea. For example, Nordic Oil, one of the leading CBD brands, has removed tea from its range.
We would therefore only buy the tea from certified shops where a quality check is also possible or you know that the tea has really been tested by recognised institutions or laboratories. Otherwise, the risk of getting an illegal product or very low quality tea is higher.
You should be extra vigilant if you are buying from online forums or from a friend, because the real ingredients are very difficult to determine.
Can you also smoke the hemp tea?
In connection with hemp tea, many people keep hearing the question of whether you can smoke the tea. It seems some people want to try it as a replacement for cannabis but it’s fair to say that we do not recommend smoking hemp tea at all!
If you are set on inhaling CBD via smoke then you are best off using vape with CBD liquids.
Have we tried a hemp tea before?
Of course we have! And the tea definitely convinced us. The good thing about hemp tea is that it can be prepared very well both hot and cold.
We have already tried both preparation methods and can say that the cold tea tastes just as good as a hot hemp tea.
We drank the CBD tea once in the afternoon as a refreshment and once in the evening before going to bed. We liked the cold hemp drink quite well on a hot summer day.
The tea helped us relax quickly and the stress literally dropped from us. Tea also helped us sleep. We slept through the night really well. However, on the days after taking the CBD, we also noticed that we were generally quite tired. We did not experience any other side effects.
The exact effect of hemp tea can be different for everyone. Therefore, it certainly makes sense if you just try it out yourself. If you don't like the taste of the tea, you can also add a little honey or lemon.
