Since the beginning of time people have been using herbs to brew teas – Cannabis has always one of these herbs. Lately however, CBD has garnered a lot of attention and therefore CBD tea is often a topic of discussion. Combining CBD with other therapeutic herbs and spices can produce a holistic remedy for a variety of symptoms both physical and mental.

Reducing Inflammation

Arthritis, Chrons disease, Multiple Sclerosis and several other diseases cause inflammation. CBD is a natural anti-inflammatory because it binds with endocannabinoid receptors and interacts with neurotransmitters in the brain. Studies have shown that CBD reduces inflammation and for this reason, can ease symptoms of diseases that cause excess inflammation.

Pain Relief

Many people live with chronic pain and so many others suffer from pain on occasion. Prescription pain medications can have negative side effects which is why many people are now turning to CBD as a remedy for pain. CBD has been found to inhibit the body’s absorption of anandamide which is a compound associated with pain regulation [1]. Combined with the anti-inflammatory properties of CBD that were mentioned above, CBD has been found to reduce chronic pain in patients suffering with nerve pain, arthritis, and other painful diseases.

Reducing Insomnia

Almost everyone knows what it is like to toss and turn all night while staring at the clock and worrying about the lack of sleep you are getting. Millions of people suffer with insomnia chronically and seek out remedies for their sleep disorder. CBD can reduce anxiety and relieve pain which are sometimes the causes of insomnia. When mixed with calming herbal blends such as Chamomile and Peppermint, CBD can have a very calming effect and cause you to fall asleep faster.

Treating Headaches

Headaches are caused by all sorts of things; staring at a screen for too long, stress, not enough sleep, poor diet, etc. CBD tea can help with headaches in the same way it helps with pain in that it can block the neurotransmission to pain receptors in the brain. This will stop headaches as well. Again, combining CBD with other herbs that holistically reduce headache pain can be a great way to treat your headaches.

Reduce Anxiety

Drinking tea can have a calming effect as it is but adding CBD to your tea can boost the calming effects and reduce anxiety. CBD naturally reduces inflammation which in turn lowers blood pressure. Lowering blood pressure can reduce anxiety and boost your mood.
