Did you know the practice of making matcha is traditionally used by Zen Buddhist monks for meditation?
While many of us grab a matcha latte from a bustling coffee shop, the monks used making matcha as a way to quiet the mind and be only focused on making the tea.
As I’m not the best at quieting my mind when I’m laying in bed or sitting on my yoga mat, I figured I’d try it out. And it actually was incredibly relaxing.
To practice it yourself, here are some things to notice and pay attention to:
And similar to yoga, it’s okay if other thoughts creep in. Just acknowledge them and tell yourself that you’ll come back to them later.
Unlike green tea, when you drink matcha, you’re actually drinking the whole tea leaves – rather than just the water that the leaves have been steeped in.
This, as well as differences in how the tea leaves are grown, is why matcha is a more concentrated source of antioxidants and other beneficial plant compounds.
Some health benefits associated with drinking matcha tea include:
There’s no one “best” or most effective dose of CBD for everyone.
As a result, it’s important to talk with your healthcare provider to determine a good amount to start with.
In general, those who are new to CBD often start with 20-40 mg/day and then slowly increase the dosage after a week or two if needed. Personally, I find 35 mg/day to be an effective dose for helping with my anxiety and sleep.
I personally like CBDistillery’s THC-free 33-mg CBD tincture.
