Touted for its health benefits, CBD tea is growing in availability and popularity. It tends to have a pleasant taste that resembles regular tea. But, like any tea, it can use a boost of flavor. Infused with lemon and cinnamon, this cup is refreshing, relaxing, and flavorful. It’s a simple way to brew a better-tasting and more effective cup of CBD tea from a prepared blend.
CBD tea is known for potentially relieving anxiety and pain among other ailments. Also called hemp tea, it may offer medicinal benefits to some people, though the extent of that is going to depend on the tea and the individual. Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the active compounds found in cannabis plants. It is not tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) which produces the psychoactive high associated with marijuana—a different plant than hemp, which is used for the majority of CBD teas.
If you're hoping to maximize the effectiveness of the cannabidiol compounds in a CBD tea bag, you'll want to add fat. The CBD molecules cling to fats, which helps your body process them. Adding cream, milk, or a similar "fat" to your cup of tea maximizes the benefits you get from drinking it.

Sprinkle the grind across the middle of the lined baking pan.
