Before we start with how to make moon milk, do you know what it is? “Moon Milk” sounds exotic and is a drink from the Ayurveda. Being of immense value in Indian history, this medicinal drink is known for promoting natural healing. The Ayurveda has gifted us with several simple and short remedies to cure various difficulties we face. One of them is drinking warm milk to sleep quickly and smoothly. Over time, many variations of moon milk have been made. One of these modified moon milk does not even require milk!
Why Should You Add CBD To Moon Milk?
You might have seen people talk a lot about CBD in your office or might have seen CBD products lined in a rack in a nearby supermarket. But, what is CBD?
CBD or cannabidiol, is a cannabinoid found in the hemp plant which belongs to the cannabis family. As it comes from a family infamous for drugs, hemp was first illegal in the country. But, later scientists came forth with data supporting the uses of CBD, which hemp contains in high amounts.
However, there are things you have to keep in mind before you buy CBD. It is available in the market in two forms- full spectrum CBD and isolate CBD. Full spectrum CBD contains other cannabinoids including CBD whereas isolate CBD contains pure natural CBD only. Full-spectrum CBD is said to be more beneficial because of the entourage effect- that is a story to tell some other day.
Secondly, always check the label of the CBD product you buy. Sometimes the names of CBD are very confusing. Manufacturers call it hemp oil, CBD oil, hemp extract and by other names. But, remember that hemp seed oil, cannabis oil, etc are not the same as CBD oil and might be psychotic. Now that you know about CBD, let us see how to make CBD Moon Milk.
