What's not to love about tea? It's warm, soothing, and perfect for self-care.
So imagine the inherently comforting qualities of tea, combined with CBD for physical and mental well-being. A match made in tea heaven, right?
Here we'll break down why CBD Tea is a triumph for the mind, body, & spirit, and share more on the inspiration behind why we decided to make our very own.
CBD Tea for the Mind, Body, & Spirit.
There has been buzz about combining CBD & yoga. Why? Because many people have noticed that CBD helps with the mind- body connection, which according to the University of Minnesota's Health & Wellness site, Taking Charge, is the concept that, "our thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and attitudes can positively or negatively affect our biological functioning. Our minds can affect how healthy our bodies are."
So how does this mind-body equation come to play with CBD-infused tea? Just as a warm cup of tea helps gives us the physical sense of feeling warm and grounded, CBD targets the serotonin system to help us manage stress and anxiety. In sum, good health starts with an aligned body and mind.
Did you know that every mammal has their very own tailor-made system just for cannabinoids called the endocannabinoid system (ECS)?
When we drink CBD tea our ECS gets to work balancing our bodies internally and working towards homeostasis, while the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties of tea helps to soothe discomfort in the body.
Tea has existed as a cultural tradition throughout history, serving as an important step in many of the rituals of ancient civilizations. So, what exactly is a ritual? According to Scientific American, rituals are "the symbolic behaviors we perform before, during, and after a meaningful event." For example, prominent athletes often engage in pre-game rituals, like superstitiously listening to the same song before every game.
Research has found there is a method to this madness. Rituals and routines help to quell nerves and anxiety, improve attention, increase emotional stability, and promote confidence.
Using tea at the same time each day as a morning, noon, or nightly self-care ritual can invoke a sense of calm, tranquility, and peace. Pause for a moment of tea mindfulness: smell your tea and feel the warmness of the cup in your hand. Make every step of preparing your CBD tea slow, thoughtful, and deliberate as a daily reminder, that all is well.
Neurogan CBD Tea: A healing family tradition
Our co-founder, Jan Brandrup, gained his first inspiration for Neurogan from a cup of tea. Each day, his Grandmother Karen would retrieve a glass jar full of hemp from the cabinet and brew herself a warm cup of tea. He would watch in awe as her vitality returned, by virtue of simple plant medicine. This experience sparked his distinct fascination with hemp and an eventual desire to spread its healing attributes.
Today, we continue Grandmother Karen’s tradition through the creation of our very own hemp extracts made with the same simple ingredients she would use. Our top-notch team handcrafts all of our hemp products through CO2 extraction and great attention to detail.
