What Are the Benefits of CBD Tea?

You may have heard of with Cannabidiol (CBD) oil, but did you know about CBD tea? Also known as hemp tea, CBD tea contains CBD oil. While CBD is a component of medical marijuana, it is typically derived from the hemp plant which is a cousin to the marijuana plant. So you can rest easy that CBD doesn’t give you the “high” associated with marijuana. It is gaining popularity thanks to its possible medicinal value. Even online influencers like Kylie Jenner have been touting CBD tea for helping them with anxiety. But how do you know if it really works? What are the real benefits of hemp tea?

CBD Tea Can Help You Sleep

Do you find yourself tossing and turning in bed? Are you finding yourself anxious at bedtime? Then CBD tea may help you. CBD helps you with falling and staying asleep.

According to a recent study, researchers found that using CBD can decrease anxiety and assist with helping people fall asleep. Consumer Reports mentions how CBD may affect sleep by interacting with receptors in the brain that govern the body’s daily sleep/wake cycles.

Researchers have found that CBD has lesser side effects than traditional medications too.

Hemp Tea May Reduce Chronic Pain

Are you suffering from chronic pain? You may want to consider drinking CBD tea. The Harvard Health Blog says that CBD “inhibits inflammatory and neuropathic pain, two of the most difficult types of chronic pain to treat.

Do you have joint pain and stiffness? CBD tea may be able to help. The Arthritis Foundation states that “CBD may help with arthritis pain.” Our bodies have natural cannabinoids that are related to inflammation and pain. Initial research indicates that CBD helps your body use its own endocannabinoids (cannabinoids naturally found in the body) more effectively.  

CBD Tea Can Calm Your Anxiety

Time Magazine reports that CBD could also be used to treat anxiety. While studies are still underway, the results are promising. A reporter from Real Simple tried CBD tea and shared how it “ …felt as if it took the sharp edge off the running worries and constant stream of thoughts…”

The Amazing Health Benefits of Tea

Discover why we are so crazy about tea here at Simplicity Teas!

You’ve heard it before, heck we’ve all heard it before: tea has amazing health benefits. Amazing as in incredible, amazing as in potentially life-changing, amazing as in unbelievably good health benefits. But you probably knew that. So, why are we telling you again? 

Per usual, our answer lies in the simplicity of life’s greatest gifts. We want to celebrate the things we love. Namely, tea. We want to sing to the skies because something as delicious as artisan loose leaf teas is a cornerstone for our path to health and wellness. So, of course we want to talk about this! 

We scoured our resources to discover some of the most significant health benefits tea could offer so that we could share a glimpse of the wellness tea can bring with you. Because there’s so much research on tea and its health benefits we were able to find not only a lengthy list of health benefits but we also gave ourselves room to commit to only the most professional studies to gain our information. None of the information we’re sharing with you today comes from inconclusive or casual studies but rather from the most dedicated of scientists and researchers across the globe. In other words, our list is legit. 

Tea, specifically home brewed teas like the ones you receive from us, have long been rumored to have unique health benefits that no other beverages offer. This has to do largely with something called flavonoids, which yes, totally sounds like something out of a science-fiction novel but lucky for us flavonoids are real and teas are lousy with them. 

But what are flavonoids?

Simply put, flavonoids are a type of plant chemical. They are most commonly found in fruit, vegetables, and of course, tea. Flavonoids have recently become the go-to subject matter for scientists studying the health benefits of tea. Flavonoids are a type of anti-oxidant and have been linked to reducing inflammation, reducing the buildup of plaque in our arteries, and improving our vascular reactivity. This is why tea is so often associated with improved heart and blood conditions.  

While that already seems like a lot of health benefits (because they are), our list continues.

Current studies on tea and its benefits have largely been focused on tea drinking populations and have found reduced likelihood of a number of diseases in these populations. These include being less likely to have a stroke, reduced likelihood of developing liver disease, and an inverse relationship between tea consumption and developing type 2 diabetes. 

Wow. 

These are some serious health benefits. If we weren’t already sold on the taste and ritual of tea, this would certainly make us smitten…okay, fine this absolutely makes us even more invested in our love for tea.

Tea benefits don’t stop at physical health though and have also been linked to improving a variety of mood disorders. Um, yes please. Make sure to check out our teas of the month club starting at $9 a month!
