Hemp Tea Benefits & Properties
Cannabis is known for the cannabinoids, which they can be found also in other plants, such as echinacea, although in cannabis strains there are in greater concentrations. Cannabinoids are substances detected in cannabis plant under the form of acid, which they turn to the final form with the decarboxylation method. Some of the most popular medical cannabis cannabinoids are cannabidiol (CBD), cannabigerol (CBG), tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), cannabinol (CBN) and many more.
The last years cannabinoids have drawn the interest of the scientific community because of the positive results that seems to bring in several disorders of organism’s homeostasis. What is mostly observed is that there is a significant change in patient’s quality of life, thanks to the analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties that they have, leading to a balanced everyday life. Depending on the cannabis strain, that is used in the infusion, there are different cannabinoids that will spread in you beverage, just by adding a fat, like milk or butter.
In Greece the law allows strains of Cannabis Sativa L. (thc<0,2%), that means they have small percentage of tetrahydrocannabinol, while they are rich in cannabidiol and cannabigerol, two cannabinoids with many beneficial properties. Especially for cannabidiol, the World Health Organization in a report published in 2018, refers that this certain substance is safe with potential benefits to the organism.
It is worth underlining that all of the cannabinoids are essential and each one has different effect, while all together compose a powerful and precious combination of substances to the organism .

Let’s see briefly cannabidiol’s beneficial properties;

Cannabis Tea Preparation
For the preparation, we will need one of the premium quality Ertha Cannabis Infusion teabag. We heat 250ml water and when the temperature reaches 100°C, we put it in our cup with the teabag. Additionally, we can put almond milk, coconut oil, or any other fat. We wait 4-5 minutes for the infusion and we can enjoy an exceptional organic cannabis tea.
Cold Hemp Tea
Preparation and ingredients for 8 people
In a jug, we put 6-8 teabags of Ertha CBD Herbal infusion. We fill the jug with 8 cups of water, room temperature. We put the jug in the fridge for 8-12 hours. Attention, do not put in the jug any kind of sweetener. After the procedure, we can taste the cannabis tea. If we want stronger flavors, we can leave the teabags more time.
Dosage and Side effects of cannabis tea
Each teabag contains 5mg cannabidiol (CBD/CBDA). To avoid discomfort side-effects, it is good not to exceed the recommended daily dose, which is 30 mg, especially if you are using already other cannabidiol products, such as CBD oil, or CBG oil.
One more time we will remind that no herb is panacea and every plant should be used consciously depending on the case. Therefore if we learn to “hear” nature and the precious information shared with us and use them for the common good, then we will get a lot of benefits.
A good point to conclude, quoting Rachel Carson; “The ‘control of nature’ is a phrase conceived in arrogance, born of the Neanderthal age of biology and philosophy, when it was supposed that nature exists for the convenience of man”.
