Hemp Tea

Anybody else tried this for relaxation and anxiety reduction? I've been drinking hemp tea for a couple of weeks now and have noticed a dramatic decrease in my anxiety. I also suffer from chronic inflammation and it seems to be working wonders for that.

Re: Hemp Tea

The important question is, does it taste like weed smells? Because that would be horrible.

lol! It has an earthy taste to it. Takes a bit of getting used to, but isn't a problem after a while. Certainly worth putting up with for the health benefits.


You can get flavoured versions as well, but they're usually more expensive. The last flavoured one I tried was lavander and it was lovely.

Re: Hemp Tea

I could do with something that lowers anxiety. Where do you get it from?

Re: Hemp Tea

Do you happen to know if it has any drug interactions? I'd love to try it by concern is the 7 other medications I'm on. Hmm. Inflammation. I have rosecea too. Might help with that. And my PCOS can have issues with inflammation.

I'll have to order some and give it a try!

I get mines online. I may not be able to say where due to site rules, but lets just say it's a popular online biding site.


Got a massive kilo bag for around 55. Might seem pricy but that's actually pretty cheap for hemp tea in such a quantity. I buy packs of empty tea bags seperately from that OTHER infamous online shopping website and just make them up myself.

Yes, I have rosacea and find that it's helping somewhat. Treating rosacea all starts with treating inflammation and fungi in the gut. I'd also recommend probiotics and avoiding any foods with gluten in them.


As far as i'm aware, there are no known interactions with medications. Hemp works by stimulating the CB1 receptors. This is because it's high in CBD. Where as THC (found in most Cannabis plants) stimulate the CB2 receptors. It's CB1 recepter stimulation that reduces anxiety and promotes relaxation and good digestive health. The CB2 recepter is for.... well lets just say if you want to have some fun. But hemp tea only contains trace amounts of THC, making it perfectly legal to consume.

What brand of hemp tea are you using?
