The cannabidiol (CBD) that we offer is of natural origin, since it is extracted from the plant Cannabis L. Sativa, also called cultivated hemp. Unlike THC, a molecule that has a narcotic effect, cannabidiol is neither addictive nor psychoactive. It is even a “well-being” molecule that will bring several benefits to your body.
Infusion, which includes teas and herbal teas, is a food process that dates back to the dawn of time. It is simply a question of extracting the active ingredients and/or the flavors of a plant (plants, leaves, flowers, etc.) to dissolve them in a liquid, most often boiling water. We are therefore looking for both taste, with generally organic, fruity or tangy flavors, and the benefits of plants, mainly relaxation and relaxation, improved digestion and sleep, detox, anti-inflammatory properties, antioxidant effects, pain-relieving properties, etc.
In short, CBD infusion consists of dissolving hemp leaves and flowers with less than 0.2% THC in a hot liquid, usually water or milk ( animal or plant). While it is quite possible to consume 100% hemp herbal teas or infusions with a high CBD bud smell content, consumers generally prefer to drink infusions or herbal teas that combine CBD with other plants, fruits or spices such as green and black tea, orange, mint, lemon, apple, verbena or even organic rooibos to soften the organic taste of hemp and possibly maximize the benefits and therapeutic properties of the CBD infusion .
Why consume CBD in the form of an infusion?
Cannabidiol can be consumed in different formats: oil, food, ingredient in the preparation of certain dishes, capsules, wax, crystals, resin, vaping e-liquid, etc. Infusion, tea and herbal tea have several advantages compared to other modes of consumption:
- Unlike smoking or vaping which burns hemp, brewing only heats it. The natural CBD is therefore preserved, and the herbal tea will even contain some traces of CBDA, a non-psychoactive substance which acts on the serotonin receptors with several benefits on the body, in particular on the digestive level and on the mood.
- CBD aficionados looking for near-immediate effects (especially for managing stress and promoting sleep) generally opt for a sublingual cannabidiol oil consumption. Infusion and herbal tea have a different profile, since the effects spread more slowly and more homogeneously in the body.
- By definition, herbal tea and infusion do not contain alcohol and other chemical substances, unlike liquid extracts found in drinkable ampoules and other solutions to dilute.
- Herbal tea and CBD infusion also have an advantage over herbal capsules and tablets: there is no has no gastric risk because the natural CBD bud smell is sufficiently diluted in water. Limit yourself to 25% CBD herbal teas, no more than twice a day to start.
- CBD herbal teas and infusions allow you to enjoy the benefits of cannabidiol without the added sugar and fat or the industrial ingredients found in other CBD products. It is therefore an excellent mode of consumption if you pay attention to your line, if you want to tone your body or as part of a detox diet;
- Herbal teas, infusions, teas and other hot CBD drinks are economical and easy to prepare (between 3 and 15 minutes). Unlike capsules, you can experiment with different organic products and organic ingredients to vary the taste, flavors and benefits for the body.
The fact of consuming CBD in herbal tea, however, has two slight disadvantages: the herbal tea does not keep (after preparation), and the active ingredients which are not soluble in water are not obtained by the consumption of the infusion. Note: It is also possible to prepare CBD decoctions by boiling the water and the plant. This method of consumption, however, gives an infusion less concentrated in active ingredients.
