Buddha Teas CBD Tea

Buddha Teas offers this interesting line of CBD-infused tea to satisfy the tea-lovers in the crowd.

They come in a variety of different flavors and are formulated with other herbs like chamomile, mint, turmeric, or ginger. 

While we’re not advocating this as a way to get high doses of CBD, the addition of this cannabinoid does a great job at boosting the already relaxing benefits of drinking a hot cup of herbal tea. 

We highly recommend this product for anybody who loves a good cup of calming tea after a meal, at work, school, or on the couch watching Netflix before bed. 

Price/Value 4/5

Considering how few CBD teas are currently available on the market, Buddha Teas’ price of $1.11 per tea bag or $0.22 per mg CBD is quite good. But there are more affordable CBD tea options available.

CBD Potency 4/5

With only 5 mg CBD per tea bag, this tea is fairly low potency. These teas use a water-soluble form of CBD which makes the low potency less inefficient than CBD teas made with the naturally-occurring fat-soluble form of CBD — which don’t dissolve well into water. For best results, we recommend letting these teas steep for as long as possible to allow more of the CBD to dissolve into the water. 

Hemp Source 4/5

Buddha Teas does not list any specific information about their hemp source — however, they do state that their products are USDA certified organic. Based on the fact that certified organic hemp is few and far between, and the language used on the site we believe Buddha Teas is referring to the other herbs included in the formula — rather than the hemp.

After reaching out the company for more information it was clear they source their hemp from high-quality sources, but we’d like to see this information listed publically on their website. 

Purpose/Uses 4/5

The idea behind Buddha Teas products is to boost the health benefits of tea with CBD extracts. Unfortunately, its CBD potency (5 mg per tea bag) is far too weak to achieve a significant benefit — especially when you consider the fact that a lot of the CBD will be lost with the teabag.

Nevertheless, these teas provide the same great benefits any other herbal tea would provide — with the additional benefits of a low-dose CBD extract.

They’re a great way to relax, soothe an upset stomach, initiate sleep, and may provide some mild symptom relief for pain or inflammation. 

Product Variations 4/5

Buddha Teas CBD tea offers good variety with a total of 4 different CBD tea blends. This is a niche product so we don’t expect there to be a large range of products in this category quite yet. We look forward to seeing what this company comes out with next, however, and hope to see some options with a higher CBD content. 

Formula/Ingredients 5/5

This CBD tea has a fairly effective formula: 5 mg of water-soluble, nano-sized CBD mixed with popular tea varieties, such as matcha, peppermint, and chamomile. We love the combination of CBD with other herbs for added benefits. There’s a chamomile blend for rest and relaxation, turmeric and ginger for inflammation and joint pain, and matcha for morning energy. 

You can’t expect these teas to cure or prevent any symptoms on their own — but make for a great addition to a well-thought-out health routine involving other supplements, medications, and lifestyle factors.

Buddha Teas CBD-Infused Tea Review

Article By
Katrina Lubiano , last updated on October 24, 2020

What is CBD Tea?

Most of us are familiar with CBD oil and capsules. However, that is far from the only way to take CBD.

One interesting new CBD category is CBD-infused drinks, which includes everything from CBD water to CBD coffee and CBD tea.

Adding CBD to tea is quite ingenious because tea already contains compounds such as L-theanine that have calming and other beneficial properties.

Many companies are making CBD infused tea bags or looseleaf tea with other calming herbs as well. The CBD provides a nice boost to an already relaxing cup of hot tea.

About the Company: Buddha Teas

Buddha Teas is based out of San Diego, California. The company currently offers over 150 unique teas, although only a few of those contain CBD.

All of the teas are crafted without added flavorings — Buddha Teas wants you to experience the herbs and spices as they are in nature.

Buddha Teas is a benefit-driven company — it offers teas to fight bacteria and fungus, for respiratory support, stomach aches, or to calm inflamed and painful joints, to name a few.

By combining CBD with other natural herbs, Buddha Teas hopes to target your symptoms more effectively. The company uses nano CBD to increase the bioavailability of its CBD and ensure that its customers get the highest possible benefit.

What Are the Benefits of CBD Tea?

CBD infused teas aren’t going to provide as strong of an effect as other forms of CBD (like CBD oils, capsules, or gummies) — however, it does add a relaxing kick to your cup of tea.

Most people who drink CBD tea aren’t using it for any specific symptom. They’re using it as a way to help them unwind at the end of a long day, or take some stress off while they’re at work.

The best CBD tea for sleep by this brand is the CBD chamomile blend. The best for supporting pain and inflammation is the CBD turmeric and ginger tea.

The best all-purpose tea is the CBD matcha green tea bags or the CBD mint tea bags.

Cost & Potency

Another attractive feature of Buddha CBD tea is its affordable price tag of $19.99. With 18 tea bags, this means you’re paying $1.11 per cup of CBD-infused tea.

This is a reasonable price, especially when we consider how few CBD tea products are currently available.

Formula/Ingredients

Buddha CBD tea combines typical herbal tea ingredients such as matcha, lemon balm, and chamomile with water-soluble CBD.

The company even includes water-soluble CBD to make up for the low solubility CBD usually has in water.

Without this special form of CBD, most of the compound would remain in the teabag rather than diffusing into the water where it can be consumed into the body.

Final Verdict: A Simple & Relaxing Herbal CBD Tea

These teas are not going to be strong enough to treat or prevent much of anything — however, the added CBD does provide some kick to the relaxing benefits of these already soothing herbal teas.

The chamomile option is particularly good for helping you wind down and relax at the end of the tea. The mint and green tea options are great all-rounders for use at work or school as a way to keep stress levels at bay. The turmeric tea has a mild spice to it that works great for minor joint or back pain.

All of these teas taste great, offer a pleasant relaxing effect, and are relatively subtle in their effects — perfect for people who just want a small dose of CBD and a nice cup of hot tea.
