What is chamomile?
Chamomile is a flower that grows in warm climates around the world. It resembles a small daisy, with white petals and a yellow center. Most varieties of chamomile flowers have a gentle apple aroma. When the petals begin to curl, the flowers are harvested and dried. The most common use of chamomile is in teas. Chamomile is grown around the world, including Germany, Egypt, India and in the US. The plant has been used by cultures dating as far back as ancient Egypt as an herbal remedy. In addition to tea, tinctures can be made from the entirety of the plant.
Chamomile tea is taken as a supplement to treat a variety of symptoms. It is often recommended to relax nerves, soothe the nervous system and aid in sleep improvement. This tea is naturally caffeine free and best enjoyed before bed time.
Studies have shown that Chamomile tea promotes a healthy and efficient immune system, fighting off harmful bacteria and boosting the immune system as a probable preventive measure. Chamomile tea has shown to help ease anxiety and depression, and many women use it to reduce menstrual pain. Chamomile teas can help ease nasal congestion and can soothe the throat. Recent studies have shown that daily cups of chamomile tea can help to regulate blood sugar levels.
Chamomile tea, like most teas, contains powerful antioxidants which can protect cells from oxidative stress and damage. These antioxidants help to remove free radicals from the bloodstream. A daily cup of chamomile tea in the evening can help with relaxation and de-stressing in addition to the myriad health benefits.
What is CBD?
CBD products are popping up all over the country since the legalization of hemp in 2018. As a supplement, it can help the body regulate itself through the Endocannabinoid System (ECS.) The ECS helps maintain a variety of bodily functions, including hunger, body temperature, alertness, and the fight or flight function. After a long day, combining CBD with a destresser like chamomile can help to soothe many symptoms of stress.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is an active substance most often extracted from hemp. Although it is also the second most prevalent substance in marijuana, CBD does not share the same psychoactive properties as THC. Early research has shown CBD to be a powerful supplement for a variety of treatment options for a healthier living. CBD by itself does not cause the same “high” as THC. It's not addictive, according to a report from the World Health Organization, “In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential.... To date, there is no evidence of public health related problems associated with the use of pure CBD.” (White)
CBD is currently prescribed to treat certain forms of epilepsy. As a supplement, it is being used to treat various forms of anxiety, stress, and depression. Most users describe CBD as lowering the volume of the world. Not a cure-all, but another tool to navigate the stresses of modern society.

The power of combining chamomile and water-soluble CBD.
Chamomile has a long spanning history for treating stress, anxiety and upset stomach. CBD aids in regulating the endocannabinoid system, the body’s prime tool for stress management. After a stressful day, the combination of chamomile and CBD can aid in unwinding, to help the body and mind heal. Some users drink chamomile CBD infused tea to help treat insomnia.
Because there is such a growth in Chamomile tea and CBD products, consumers have the opportunity to choose the highest quality. Leaf Tea Company uses water soluble CBD, which has a much higher bioavailability when compared to oil infused CBD tinctures. This means that the CBD in Leaf Tea will be absorbed much more efficiently than most other CBD teas. An oil based CBD tea would not dilute into water or the body as efficiently as a water based CBD. In order to ensure the highest bioavailability, consumers should choose water soluble CBD whenever possible.
