CBD (Cannabidiol) is an active component of Cannabis Sativa, and together with tetrahydrocannabinol, (THC), is the main and most well-known phytocannabinoid present in Cannabis.
However, we are starting to talk about other molecules such as CBG, to which we have dedicated an introductory article on the blog of our website.
Cannabis varieties particularly rich in CBD can help to treat a serious number of symptoms for which Cannabidiol is becoming increasingly important. We have already spoken about many of them, for example in the case of:
In this article we talk about how to make a herbal tea with Cannabis rich Cannabidiol.
Those who follow therapy based on Cannabis have a method of preparing the teas described by the Ministry of Health through the Ministerial Decree on November 9th, 2015, a document we will present an updated version of at a later date.
Many doctors are now replacing the teas with oil, partly due to dosage but for other reasons too. In this article, however, we speak only of the preparation of a herbal tea.
How to proceed?
Pick a saucepan and always use the same one for the preparation of your tea.
If you use quantities of cannabis ranging from 25 to 200mg, use at least 250ml of water.
Place the contents of the capsule in cold water and let it heat slowly until it boils.
Once boiling, cover with a lid and let it boil for about 20 minutes.
Lower the heat and add at least 15ml of whole milk. This is because the active ingredients of Cannabis are not water-soluble, but are fat soluble.
Continue to boil on high for another 15 minutes, then switch off and allow to cool.
Do not filter your herbal tea but swallow the residues of inflorescences(clusters of flowers), so as to assimilate any substances not extracted or decarboxylated during preparation.
The intent of this article is not to provide information of a medical but merely informative nature. Anyone wishing to use Cannabis in this way is always advised to contact their doctor beforehand.
