We couldn't have thought of a better way to enjoy matcha and CBD together. With a dash of lavender and honey, this matcha latte is both comforting and delicious.
Lavender is a natural and gentle nervine that can have a calming effect on the nervous system. When coupled with the L-theanine found in matcha, this latte is the perfect recipe to help relax your body and mind. Additionally, CBD oil is known for the calming effect it may have on some people, as well as a handful of other health benefits. Canadian company June Herbals explains more about CBD benefits on their website.
Recently, we’ve been enjoying June Herbals’ hemp extract in our daily matcha lattes. June Herbals is a Toronto botanical wellness company that specializes in producing quality hemp-infused and fully plant-based products. Their CBD (cannabidiol) oil is organic, sun-grown and full-spectrum. Unlike CBD isolate, which is a crystalline substance containing only pure CBD, full-spectrum hemp extract contains beneficial cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids that are found naturally in the cannabis plant. CBD is non-psychoactive and will not produce the “high” feeling that’s associated with THC (tetrahydrocannabinol).
If you’re looking for more information on CBD oil, our friends over at June Herbals offer an array of useful information on full-spectrum hemp extract and the body’s own endocannabinoid system. Learn more here.
