Health Benefits of Marijuana Tea [CBD Oil For Sleep]

Health

Most people who use marijuana for its recreational and/or medicinal properties consume it via the traditional ways – smoking, vaping, or eating it in the form of edibles. nowadays, it's also more common to consume marijuana through CBD oil for insomnia and other purposes. While marijuana tea is a lot less common, it's a much healthier alternative to smoking, and brings other unique benefits as we'll describe in this post.


What is Marijuana Tea?

Marijuana tea is made from the cannabis plant, and its key benefits are derived from THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) content in the plant. THC ideally binds to the pain receptors in the brain, which makes it a natural pain reliever, and offers other therapeutic benefits.

Plus, marijuana tea lets you enjoy your marijuana without the known risks associated with smoking it. It is therefore a perfect solution for patients who suffer from conditions that affect their throat, lungs, mouth, or have other respiratory problems. It can also enhance the effect of CBD Oil for sleep and other conditions.

Taking a quick look at the historical profile of marijuana tea, it's quite evident that this is far from an invention. A number of ancient cultures would consume brews infused with marijuana for the anti-inflammatory and anesthetic properties. Marijuana tea was used as a treatment for all kinds of conditions, including epilepsy, and during childbirth to offer relief from headaches and nausea.

Benefits of Marijuana Tea

1. Pain relief

Marijuana is a known powerful analgesic and has been in use for centuries to treat painful conditions like muscle pains, arthritis, and other chronic illnesses. The active compounds in cannabis have been shown to bind to various receptors in the central nervous system where they can block pain effectively.

The good thing about how cannabis works to relieve pain is that it does so without the negative side effects associated with the conventional pain killer medications. For instance, marijuana is not as addictive as morphine, codeine, and oxycontin, and there's no any dose-related fatality ever recorded from using marijuana.

Medical experts are increasingly agreeing that cannabis is an effective and safe way to alleviate pain and manage painful conditions like migraines, fibromyalgia, cancer, etc. Cannabis infused tea is quite a great delivery method considering that when marijuana is absorbed through the digestive tract, it has much longer lasting and holistic effects.

2. Marijuana Tea has a Neuroprotective Effect

Previously, the Drug War hysteria tried to link the use of marijuana with brain damage and memory problems. However, the evidence is contrary. Recent studies have found out that marijuana seems to produce a neuroprotective effect. Precisely, THC appears to block or slow down the production of beta-amyloid proteins. These proteins are widely thought to be the predecessors of Alzheimer's.

And while the research has, until now been performed on animals only, the preliminary results suggest that cannabis helped mice perform much better at certain memory tasks. Now, it's being speculated that cannabis might be helpful in opening new doors for the prevention of cognitive decline.

3. Promotes Digestive Health

When cannabis is smoked or vaped, the active compounds shoot straight into the bloodstream and the brain. This is why the effects are normally felt immediately, usually after one or two hits. However, the brain isn't the only organ that can be affected by cannabis. The endocannabinoid receptors are spread out all over the body, including the digestive tract.

Upon taking marijuana tea, the active compounds of marijuana can provide instant relief from many digestive problems, from constipation to diarrhea, to acid reflux. And just as different ancient cultures did when they needed relief for digestive troubles, you can use marijuana tea to reap these beneficial properties as well.

4. Helps with Anxiety and Mood Disorders

Anxiety and depression are caused by many factors. The persistent trigger of our "fight or flight" response, neuronal inflammation, or a neurotransmitters deficiency may impact mood. Fortunately, cannabinoids can help with these major factors that contribute to depression and anxiety.

Cannabis infused tea is great for people prone to increased anxiety. The tea makes for a less psychoactive and more mellow high in comparison to smoking cannabis. The relaxing effects of the tea will also last much longer.

5. Alleviates Sleep Disorders

Marijuana can serve as an effective sedative, based on the kind of marijuana you take, this probably explains the recent popularity of CBD oil for insomnia. The sleep-inducing effect is ideal for people suffering from continually disrupted sleep or insomnia. With a good cup of marijuana tea, you can go back to a restful, uninterrupted sleep and you will wake up feeling refreshed.

6. Eases the symptoms of Nausea

While nausea can be really uncomfortable, it's actually one of the natural defense mechanisms of our bodies. It helps the body fight toxic substances. However, if nausea becomes chronic, it can be problematic. For example, people undergoing chemotherapy experience nausea quite regularly.

Fortunately, THC has been shown to relieve nausea and stimulate appetite. Marijuana tea essentially helps you reap the anti-nausea effect of THC and is easy on your gut. As a bonus, marijuana tea may increase your appetite in the process.

It’s Time for Women to Stop Worrying About Being “Too Much”

We are living in a time when women are rising to new heights which means they are regularly being confronted with the fear of being "too much". For women in business this is pervasive and costly.

A few ways women can be perceived as "too much" are:

Speaking up about their successes and achievements.

Sharing one too many photos of their cute kids.

Telling one too many people about that date night.

Looking a little too good in that swimsuit.

These can lead to being publicly attacked on social media or privately slandered which in turn leads to women dimming their light and walking on egg shells in hopes of avoiding conflict and judgement.

The minute a woman feels it's unsafe to shine she will begin to overthink, worry, and fear how she shows up in the world.

Forgetting to announce the book is done and the interview is live.

Choosing to focus on what's still on the to-do list rather than what's been checked off.

Many female entrepreneurs are subconsciously altering their behavior in an attempt to not attract too much attention to themselves, rather than focusing on allowing authenticity and magnetism to attract their ideal clients and community.

Women are afraid of being criticized, ostracized, and abandoned by other women for simply being who they are. This leads to quite the quantum when being who you are is simplest way to accelerate the growth of your business.

New research shows men are far more comfortable with self promotion than women are. Researchers found that men rate their own performance 33 percent higher than equally performing women. What we know is that self promotion pays off and this is where women are missing the boat.

The world needs more women to step into leadership roles and no longer be intimidated about creating six and seven figure careers.

Here are five ways to release the fear of being "too much":

1. Approve of yourself.

While it feels good to receive outside validation it will never be enough if you don't first appreciate yourself. The key to having a healthy support system is to make sure you are part of it. Being your biggest critic is what your mother's generation did. It's now time to be your biggest cheerleader. Becoming aware of self talk will reveal what belief is ready to be re-wired. Create a simply mantra that affirms how incredible capable you are.

2. Connect deeply to those you serve.

One powerful way to shift out of people pleasing behavior is to get clear on who actually matters to the wellbeing and success of your life and business. Leadership is not about being the most popular, instead it's a decision to be brave for those who can't be. Take a few minutes each day to visualize and meditate on those your business serves and supports. See your future clients moving toward you every time you choose to stand in your power and use your authentic voice.

3. Remember the legacy you wish to leave.

Having your life purpose and legacy in writing is one of the most transformational exercises you can do. Reading this often will keep you focused on what matters. Knowing what you wish to leave in the hearts of those you love most is incredibly grounding. You didn't come here to keep your mouth shut, dilute your truth, or dim your light-you came here to make a difference.

4. Forgive those who have been unsupportive in the past.

The past has a way of informing the future in a negative way when there is unresolved pain. Take a few minutes to get quiet and ask yourself who you have unforgiveness towards or maybe their name came to mind as you read this article. Listening to a forgiveness meditation or writing a letter to the person you are ready to forgive are both simple and effective ways to process and heal.

5. Be part a community of bright, successful women.

Meaningful relationships with others who have similar aspirations is what will keep you out of isolation and playing small. These connections can happen in a networking group, online community or a local Meetup. Thriving in every area of life is depend on you knowing where you belong and being celebrated there. Don't wait to be invited, go actively seek out people and places that support your dreams and desires.

6. Accept you can have it all.


Women have been fed a lie for generations that says, you can have love or money. Decide you can have it all and allow it to flow to you. You can have a successful career and an amazing mother. You can balance motherhood and loving marriage. Don't let anyone write the rules for you. This is the time to create the life you desire on your terms.

7. Celebrate everything!

The fastest way to leave the haters in the dust is to celebrate everything! At the end of each day lay in bed and recall the best moments. At the end of each week, publicly acknowledge and celebrate what's good in your life. Once a month, have a celebration dinner and share it with those who have helped you in the journey. If there's something good happening, talk about it with everyone who will listen!

May you be a woman who chooses to shine so that others may be reminded of all they can be and do.
