WHY HEMP LEAF TEA?

THE GOODNESS OF CANNABIS

One of the more well-known compounds in Cannabis is cannabidiol, or CBD. While increasingly readily available as an isolate in products around the world, we believe in the value of full-spectrum CBD. This means you get all the benefits of the whole plant, including its terpenes (not only for flavour and scent, but also additional healing properties) as well as all the other beneficial cannabinoids, vitamins and chlorophyll.

The incredible thing about Cannabis is that it also increases the wellness of the environment. It can be grown without the use of herbicides, pesticides or fungicides. With similar carbon sequestering volumes to spekboom, the production of Cannabis for tea is carbon negative, meaning it absorbs more CO2 from the atmosphere during its growth than is emitted by the equipment used to harvest and process our tea. Furthermore, it restores soil health - after cultivation the soil is left in optimum condition. 

WHY HEMP?

The Cannabis plant is renowned for its health and nutritional benefits, albeit infamous for its psychoactive properties. This intoxication comes as a result of consuming tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC. A Cannabis plant is generally classified as hemp when its THC levels are naturally low (less then 0.3%). Plants with high THC levels are commonly referred to as Marijuana. Our hemp leaf tea brings you the goodness of Cannabis without the high.

Hemp has been known to reduce inflammation, calm anxiety, relieve chronic pain, regulate the immune system and sooth the digestive system. It has been used as a general health tonic for centuries.

WHY TEA?

There are few things as soothing as a freshly brewed cup of tea. It is only natural, then, that we invested our efforts into bringing you the incredible goodness of the hemp plant in the form of a drink already used for increasing wellness.
