Fall and winter are seasons when our body’s immune system is weaker, therefore, we should think more of prevention. One of the best ways to help prevent colds and flu are herbal teas including hemp tea.
The first known cannabis-infused food was in India, where people have prepared food and drink with bhang for millennia, for both spiritual and medicinal purposes. The oil-solubility of cannabis extracts was also known to ancient Indians, with Sanskrit recipes requiring cannabis to be sautéed in ghee before It was used in food and drink as early as 1000 B.C. in the region of South Asia.
CBD in hemp tea needs to be activated before consumption. To activate the cannabinoids, they must go through a process called decarboxylation. In plain English, it means you need to apply heat. This is important because the temperature at which decarboxylation occurs is roughly 220°F. Water boils at 212°F. Adding fats to your brew will help the CBD become more bioavailable, more easily absorbed by the body. Lipids are fats, like those found in coconut oil or in dairy products. Simply adding fats to your tea and allowing extra steep time allows the CBD to attach itself to fats and increase its availability in your system. The best fats to add to hemp tea are coconut milk, coconut oil or regular milk if you prefer.
When buying CBD tea, look for products that use pre-decarboxylated CBD. Activating the CBD ahead of time, making it instantly available in your brew, it also adds a nice nutty, cannabis flavor. The Brothers Apothecary teas are an excellent choice with a wide variety of flavors and blends to choose from.
