For centuries now, marijuana has always been associated with several health benefits. Before cannabis became reputable for its high side effects, it was famous for its health benefits. The high levels of CBD and other vital compounds in the plant all help to keep body cells healthy while at the same time, reversing the effects of diseases. Many have dubbed cannabis a wonder drug, and people consume it in many different forms. In this excerpt, we’ll focus more on the health benefits that you can enjoy from drinking cannabis tea every morning.

1. Pain Reduction
This is perhaps the most prominent health benefit that people with chronic illnesses enjoy after drinking cannabis tea. The cannabinoids found in marijuana help damp pain signals that bind to pain receptors in the central nervous system. Unlike codeine or morphine, marijuana isn’t addictive and doesn’t have any withdrawal symptoms either.
Most specialists suggest that consuming cannabis-infused tea is more effective than smoking the plant when used for pain relief. The tea travels through your digestive tract and body. Therefore, its pain relief effects last for a lot longer and are more efficient as well. As common analgesia, cannabis can relieve patients suffering from all kinds of pain, from mild headaches to chronic traumas.

2. Promotes Digestion
When you smoke cannabis, most of its beneficial cannabinoids head straight to your brain. Drinking cannabis-infused tea, however, delivers the cannabinoids directly to your digestive system and into your bloodstream. The receptors in your digestive tract absorb the cannabinoids, and the effects are instantaneous.
This can help reduce digestive problems such as constipation, diarrhea, cramping, and acid reflux. In fact, cannabis has been used to treat gastrointestinal problems long before people started smoking it. If your gut is having issues, you might want to consider brewing yourself a cup of cannabis-infused tea.
3. Lowers Anxiety and Depression
Different factors, such as neural inflammation, a deficiency in neurotransmitters such as serotonin which impact mood, or persistent triggering of a “fight or flight” response, can cause anxiety or depression. Thankfully, cannabinoids have the right set of compounds to address all of these factors that fuel an individual’s anxiety and depression. Adding a few drops of CBD oil to your regular teas or jasmine, green tea, or Shroom tea can lower anxiety and depression.
When you drink cannabis tea, the digestive system converts the THC into a form that produces a mellower, total-body high. This method of consumption is also more relaxing and invigorating. Not to mention, its effects, when taken in tea, are long-lasting.
Most people who suffer from chronic pain also tend to suffer from anxiety. It’s common to find people with life-threatening or debilitating illnesses also experience fear and anxiety—fortunately, the cannabinoids and other compounds in marijuana help to combat both health issues during treatment. Cannabis is well known for its calming effects on the mind. It’s the perfect remedy for patients looking for a sense of well-being.

4. Stabilizing the Mood
Most people wake up feeling crampy with mood swings all over the room. This can also be a result or a sign of depression and can be triggered by neuronal inflammation. Neural inflammation occurs when there’s a deficiency in neurotransmitters in the nervous system. Taking cannabis-infused tea can, therefore, help you to feel more relaxed and invigorated in the morning.
A sip of cannabis tea should help set you up for your daily activities right from bed. Unlike smoking cannabis, taking it in your morning tea helps stabilize your mood and relieve you of emotional stress, anxiety, and depression.
5. Improves the Heart
Much like a proper diet and exercise, cannabis tea also helps to improve your overall cardiovascular system. Compounds found in cannabis help in stabilizing blood pressure and blood circulation in the body. Cannabis is also known to help arteries to relax more and widen. This helps to make blood flow to and from the heart smoother.
High blood pressure usually occurs when the patient’s arteries narrow and harden. Consequently, the heart exerts more pressure to pump enough blood to all parts of the body. This can, in turn, block the heart arteries causing the patient to suffer a heart attack. Taking cannabis-infused tea could be the much-needed alternative treatment to address this health problem. It’s also important to note that cannabis tea isn’t a direct replacement for heart medication and high blood pressure. It only helps in conjunction with the right medical treatments.
