What is CBD?
CBD, or Cannabidiol, is a chemical compound found in the Cannabis Sativa plant, which is also known as marijuana or hemp. Once extracted from the plant, CBD is often blended into a carrier oil such as MCT oil or Hemp Seed oil, creating what has now become the much talked about CBD oil. It is used by many people around the world to support with everyday living and a healthy lifestyle.
However, there are many that don’t like the flavour of CBD oil – admittedly it is an acquired taste. But not to worry - there are several ways to mask the taste of your CBD oil.
Hemp Tea is a very common and practical way of masking the taste of your CBD oil, whilst still enjoying the benefits of your daily dose. Here’s how to make Hemp Tea UK.
How can you take CBD?
CBD is commonly taken orally via drops of CBD oil under the tongue, but there are other ways to ingest it too. CBD edibles such as CBD Chocolate & CBD Gummies are also effective and enjoyable ways to take your CBD. CBD Vapes are popular as well, mainly due to the speed of absorption via the alveoli in the lungs.
Can you use CBD in tea?
Yes, it is perfectly possible to add CBD to tea, or coffee or whatever drink you prefer. Some people don’t like the taste of CBD oil so wish to mask the flavour. Tea is an ideal drink to mix your CBD oil with as it is generally consumed morning and/or evening, so it can fit seamlessly into your daily routine.
What are the benefits of Hemp Tea?
The main benefit of Hemp Tea is that you are absorbing CBD without the need to taste it directly. Also, as you will see below, it is incredibly easy to make!
How do you make Hemp Tea?
Simply make your tea as you normally would and remove the bag.
Add one pipette of Dr Watson CBD oil to your cup of tea and stir well!
Whether you take it with or without milk and sugar, you will still ingest and absorb the added CBD oil. However, adding milk, particularly full fat milk, could potentially increase the bioavailability of the CBD oil. This means that you can increase the amount of CBD that your body absorbs.
Note: Our 4000mg Goodnight Oil makes for the perfect evening Hemp Tea UK, as it contains chamomile & peppermint extracts. Just add one pipette to your chamomile or mint tea for a great night’s sleep!
Enjoy your cuppa!
Why stop there?
While we recognize tea is a popular choice of drink for many around the world in the early or late hours of the day, there are hundreds of ways you can get creative with CBD oil. One alternative way of viewing CBD oil is simply seeing it as a herb / flavour / seasoning for a dish that you cook. We find it works great in some pasta sauces which are already quite herb rich. Adding CBD oil to this simply provides another dimension to the flavour. CBD oil on Avocado toast is something that we quite like here at Dr Watson.
Alternately, if you want to stick with taking your CBD oil sublingually without tasting a raw hemp flavour, try Dr Watson CBD flavoured oils in a variety of strengths. These include great blends such as Yuzu & Eucalyptus, Passionfruit & Ginger, and Chamomile & Peppermint.
