What Exactly is Turmeric
For thousands of years, India has been the largest turmeric producer on the planet. Though today it is cultivated throughout the world, we often associate its strong flavour with Indian foods, and its ayurvedic reputation. With its pungent taste and bright yellow colour, turmeric has earned a distinctive, and distinguished place in the kitchen. Turmeric may be the “it” food product of our times, but it’s ancient to modern usage in the Hindu culture spans from wedding rituals, to clothes dying, to healing salves. Today, piggy-backing on another culture’s blessings is normal, and we take it for granted. For those interested in learning more about the plethora of uses for turmeric, the information is vast and readily available via the internet.
What Exactly is Ginger
Shaped like a horn: this is what ginger means in Sanskrit. This ancient spice, first cultivated and used in ancient China and India, was reportedly recorded in the writings of the Chinese philosopher, Confucius, best known for creating and espousing the Golden Rule, which preaches that one should not do to others what one would not want have done to them. Closely related to turmeric as a root, and a powerful spice, China, India, and Arabic cultures have included ginger as a staple in their diets for countless years.
CBD Turmeric & Ginger Infusion
Frequently paired for consumption, the combination of turmeric and ginger is an obvious winner when seeking a warming, stimulating cuppa. Considered close relatives as far as roots go, in this instance together really is better, which is then topped off with 5 mg of our water-soluble CBD. The pungent, mildly bitter taste of turmeric, when combined with slightly pungent, delightfully sweet ginger, makes an obviously perfect combo.
Water-Soluble vs. Oil Based CBD

Naturally, you don’t want the exquisite experience of enjoying a cup of Buddha Teas turned into a science project, but here’s the deal: not all CBD-infused drinks are the same. Our innovative process ensures that the CBD we claim to include in our tea bags actually ends up in your tea.
