There are so many special and unique forms of edibles out there that cannabis is being infused with to make it more beneficial in terms of the medicinal benefits that are present in the natural products and for the recreational purposes that they're commonly used for. This rise in development or should we say this newfound application of cannabis came to be because some users of cannabis needed other exciting forms of harnessing the potentials present in cannabis without going through the common ways of smoking and vaping.

Cannabis has since been harnessed and infused into tinctures, teas, mojitos, gazpachos, cakes and so on. This then makes the knowledge of the right way to go about preparing these edibles paramount as most of those preparing them are doing it from the comfort of their homes. If not properly prepared, the benefits embedded in cannabis may not be totally harnessed which makes the knowledge of the right way of preparing  these cannabis infused products essential. In this article, we will be paying close attention to cannabis kombucha, what  it entails, and how to go about preparing it.

What is Kombucha?

Kombucha can simply be regarded as a healthy brew of fermented tea containing necessary probiotics, B vitamins and enzymes. This unique brew is made of special herbs which have unique medicinal effects which further makes it beneficial as it has a long-range of pharmacological activities which accounts for the case to also introduce cannabis into the mix with a view to increasing the range of activity.

Kombucha generally contains a source of sugar usually honey or cane sugar and black tea which both serve as a source of food for the symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast (SCOBY). Fermentation therefore occurs which then leads to the production of various beneficial products such as B vitamins, vinegar, alcohol, and some acidic compounds. These compounds produced in the brew give some of the beneficial activities that have been ascribed to the brew and the incorporation of cannabis can only make this better.

Cannabis kombucha sees the infusion of cannabis into this delightful mix and cannabis brings with the numerous cannabinoids and terpenes that are embedded in it which have a wide range of activity in the endocannabinoid system. Cannabis contains cannabinoids such as the non-psychoactive CBD and THC which are known to elicit a wide range of beneficial medical activities.

Benefits of Cannabis Kombucha

Production of beneficial bacteria: A good number of beneficial strains of bacteria that are important in improving general health are produced in the brew. Bacteria strains such as acetobacter, lactobacillus, glucanobacter which help the lining of the digestive tract and improve the absorption of nutrients are produced. They also help to improve the immune system.

Production of antibacterial compounds: Acetic acid and other compounds with antibacterial activity are produced in the brew and will help in dealing with unwanted bacteria in the body system.
