Dynamic Duo – CBD and Matcha
Matcha and cannabidiol (CBD) are both growing in popularity in the US because of their widely known health benefits, although both have been used for their healing properties for hundreds of years. The health benefits of matcha CBD include everything from antioxidants to stress relieving properties. Matcha powder includes vitamins like vitamin C, selenium, chromium, zinc and magnesium. Matcha may have even better health benefits than green tea because it includes the whole tea leaf and is such a concentrated formula. When combined with cannabidiol, the benefits are doubled with additional stress-relieving and relaxation properties. CBD has been used to help aid a myriad of conditions, including nausea, seizures, and anxiety.
What is Matcha?
Matcha is made of green tea leaves that have been dried and crushed into a fine powder. It is traditionally from Japan, where ceremonial grade matcha from certain regions is the best in quality. The powder is mixed with water to create matcha tea, or incorporated into lattes, baked goods, ice cream and a variety of other foods for flavoring. Matcha tastes like a concentrated form of green tea, with a mildly sweet and strong flavor. High quality, fresh matcha is a bright green color which has a better taste than duller matcha that can be more bitter.
What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is extracted from the hemp plant and is also found in smaller amounts in the marijuana plant as well. It is non-psychoactive (read: does not get you high), and is known for its calming benefits that can counteract the effects of THC (the compound in marijuana that does get you ‘high’). CBD is legal in all 50 states, and as more studies are conducted we are discovering the many benefits CBD may have. Many people use cannabidiol to help treat seizures, nerve pain, anxiety, inflammation, headaches and more chronic conditions that are hard to treat with pharmaceuticals.
