Cannabidiol (CBD) is a type of cannabinoid, a chemical that is naturally derived from cannabis plants (marijuana and hemp). Unlike tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD does not cause the euphoria or “high” sensation associated with cannabis. CBD has gained popularity in recent years as a promising natural remedy for many health problems.
What is CBD?
Cannabidiol, also known as CBD, comes from the hemp plant and is the “second most common active ingredient in cannabis.” It is usually taken in oil form to help with anxiety, depression and other medical problems.
CBD oil is made in the same way that some essential oils are made. The most common extraction method is CO2 extraction which uses a pressurized chamber filled with CO2 and the hemp plant to extract the oil. Alcohol extraction is also popular and has been shown to preserve hemp well.
What is CBD tea?
Although CBD can be consumed in a variety of forms, CBD tea has gained popularity for its beneficial effects for conditions such as seizures, anxiety, depression, inflammation, epilepsy, addiction, and insomnia, to name a few. Like other teas, CBD tea comes in a wide variety of flavors and can be made from scratch at home! It has a pleasant taste similar to regular tea and can be infused with other natural ingredients to enhance the flavor. Cinnamon, agave, lemon, and dairy-free cream can help mask the taste of CBD if you’re not a fan of its strong taste. This powerful tea is refreshing and relaxing and can help heal a variety of ailments.

The health benefits of CBD
Prescription CBD is used as an anti-seizure medication and is very effective. This is the most impressive benefit of this vegetable oil. Several studies suggest that CBD oil can help with anxiety and insomnia. Customers often gravitate towards CBD for these benefits, and anecdotal research has shown that it works quite well.
Although CBD is often ingested, it can also be applied topically as an anti-inflammatory and pain reliever. A study in the European Journal of Medicine suggests that this oil can help soothe the effects of arthritis when applied to the skin.
How to make CBD tea
To make CBD tea at home, first gather your ingredients. You will need 1 CBD tea bag, hot water and any other additions to flavor your tea. You can include fresh lemon peels, a cinnamon stick, a splash of cream and agave. In a cup, add the ingredients and the tea bag and fill it with hot water. Leave to rest for about 5 minutes and enjoy!
CBD is generally safe. However, similar to any supplement, side effects and interactions can occur. It is recommended to consult your doctor before trying it.

All of the elements in this stir-fry last a good amount of time and only require a little preparation. Perhaps the best part of this dish is the wild rice, which is actually not rice at all. I discovered this way of ‘flowering’ wild rice a few years ago, when I was teaching in Barcelona, and I’ve been hooked ever since. A great way to add variety to your meals is to include less common plants, and ‘rice’ brings a new texture and technique to this dish.
