Understanding the Benefits of Cannabis Tea 

Personal_Finance / Cannabis Jan 23, 2020 - 06:02 PM GMT

By: Dylan_Moran

Personal_Finance Most of us use cannabis for their recreational and medicinal properties. As marijuana continues to become more mainstream, the most common consumption methods are still smoking, vaping, or in the form of edibles. Consumption of marijuana in the form of tea is far less common. However, experts suggest that this form relieves consumers from some of the most well-known risks of smoking.  

It is important, however, to remember that marijuana tea is not a new invention by any means. In many ancient cultures, marijuana-infused brews were used extensively because of its anti-inflammatory and anesthetic properties. These teas were used as treatments for conditions such as headaches, nausea, childbirth, epilepsy, and others. 

According to i49, the most compelling reasons for using marijuana tea are as mentioned below. Some of the best cannabis seeds for home growing are available from i49

Pain Relief: It has been scientifically established that the active compounds present in cannabis are capable of binding to certain receptors in the central nervous system of the body to block pain effectively. Therefore, cannabis is undoubtedly a potent analgesic for the treatment of the symptoms of muscle pains, arthritis, and other highly uncomfortable and disruptive conditions.  

Cannabis stands out as an analgesic not only because of its ability to actively block pain but also the fact that it works without the negative side effects of pain killers. Compared to vaping or smoking, consuming marijuana in the form of tea allows for more sustained effects as a pain reliever.

Digestive Health: When cannabis is used for smoking or vaping, all its active compounds move directly to the brain. However, cannabis can affect different parts of the body because the endocannabinoid receptors are spread all over the body. When we drink marijuana tea, active compounds can provide us relief from acid reflux, diarrhea, constipation, and cramps. 

Anti-inflammatory Abilities: Cannabis also has extraordinary anti-inflammatory properties, making it suitable for the treatment of arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and IBS. These conditions often arise because of the malfunctioning of the immune system, resulting in inflammation. By interacting with the body’s endocannabinoid system, cannabis can reduce inflammation by counteracting the overactive immune responses.   

Prevention of Cognitive Decline: The latest cannabis-related scientific studies clearly indicate that it may have a significant role in the prevention of Alzheimer’s disease. THC, the primary psychoactive compound found in cannabis, has already been proven to block or slow down the functioning of a type of protein that is believed to be one of the factors responsible for Alzheimer’s in older patients.

Though this research has so far been performed only on animals, the results have shown that certain memory tasks were performed better by a mice population after ingesting cannabis. It is extremely likely that a new avenue for the prevention of cognitive decline can be opened up by cannabis. 

Mood Disorders: Just like anxiety and depression, mood disorders can be caused by various underlying factors. Sometimes, this can be the result of physical factors such as serotonin deficiency or neuronal inflammation. In such conditions, cannabis can deliver excellent stress-relieving outcomes because of its ability to interact with the endocannabinoid system of the body. 

Marijuana tea is a potent treatment alternative for anxiety sufferers because it creates a less psychoactive and more mellow effect compared to smoking marijuana. As the infusion has a lower THC content, anxiety patients find marijuana tea more relaxing than smoking. Also, the relaxing effect of the tea lasts for a much longer duration. 

Making Marijuana Tea: It is not at all difficult to make marijuana tea. Simmer some buds on low heat for approximately half an hour along with some added oil or butter. Leaves or stems can also be used instead of buds. Go for buds if you are looking for the strongest infusion. On the other hand, a significantly weaker brew will be created by using the stems.  

Please remember that it takes about 30 minutes for marijuana tea to show its results. However, these effects may last for as long as eight hours.
