Tea has been one of the latest crazes, especially hemp tea, however, does hemp tea get you high in 2018? The answer is no. Hemp tea does not contain a significant amount of THC (the part that gets you high) to make you feel a high. In fact, the hemp plant is a very versatile plant. The entire plant can be cooked, brewed, eaten, or extracted. Hemp has many health benefits.
Tea originated in ancient times in Asia. It is traditionally prepared with tea leaves. However, if you steep hemp leaves this does the job just as well.
Hemp tea is known for its greenish color. This is because the plant is growing and maturing longer than other plants. In fact, the plant is harvested when the CBD levels are at their highest levels.
You will not have to worry about THC because the hemp plant contains only a 0.2 percent or less. When the concentration of THC is this small you will never feel any kind of high or difference after consuming the product.
Is there CBD in Hemp Tea?
Hemp teas are made of the flowers and trim of a hemp plant. These parts of the plants have an abundance of antioxidants and cannabidiol or CBD.
Cannabidiol or CBD is one of the most abundant cannabinoids found in hemp. CBD is non-psychoactive and nontoxic. It also has no side effects. It is recommended that you add a dash of fat to hemp tea because CBD is not water soluble. This means with fat added you will be able to absorb all the benefits CBD has to offer.
How to Prepare Hemp Tea

Let the leaves steep (soak in water) for two to five minutes. The longer you let the leaves steep the stronger your tea will be.
Hemp tea is known for its pleasant taste. Like any other herbal tea, you can modify it to taste how you want. Simply adding honey, milk, or lemon will usually do the trick.
