Turmeric CBD Drink: Potent Anti-Inflammatory Recipe

 

We all know about the health benefits of CBD, but have you ever thought about combining it with turmeric?

 

Turmeric is quickly gaining traction in the wellness community for its potent health benefits, one of which is its powerful anti-inflammatory properties. Combining this with the anti-inflammatory properties of CBD into one delicious drink is easily the strongest anti-inflammatory tonic out there.

 

TURMERIC AND CANNABIS

 

Turmeric has been used since ancient times by civilizations in Asia for its medicinal properties. It’s also one of the most popular spices used in cooking especially in curries, but this golden spice has far-reaching health benefits. Turmeric contains a compound called curcumin, which is also responsible for giving it its bright saffron color. Curcumin is known for its potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Oxidative damage from free radicals is known to cause numerous serious conditions, but regular consumption of turmeric can assist in prevention. Curcumin works two ways against free radicals: aside from directly blocking them, it also activates the body’s antioxidant mechanisms.

 


This drink is a great way to prevent chronic conditions especially those caused by inflammation.

 

 

These conditions include cancer, cardiovascular disease, and even Alzheimer’s among many others. Studies even show that the anti-inflammatory properties of curcumin were more effective than conventional medications and produced better anti-inflammatory responses in the body. The best part is that these natural ingredients have absolutely no side effects.

 

 

Honey has been used since ancient times for its medicinal and health benefits. It has long been part of Ayurvedic medicine and today is consumed raw for the multitude of benefits it offers. It’s one of the easiest and most delicious medicines out there – as long as you use an organic and pure variety from a trusted source, you can be sure you’re getting all the goodness of honey. This golden liquid is a good source of antioxidants and helps flush out free radicals from the body. This further improves the immune system and protects you from heart disease and cancer. Honey also contains antifungal properties.

SMOOTHIE RECEIPE

 

This drink contains other healthy ingredients. Ginger is a root with numerous medicinal properties, including being a strong anti-inflammatory. Ginger also has cancer-fighting properties and helps fight free radicals.

 


Black pepper contains a compound called piperine, which has been shown to improve the bioavailability of curcumin by as much as 2,000%. Without consuming piperine through black pepper, the body metabolizes the curcumin in the intestinal wall and liver. However, if you feel that these organs need extra care, such as if you’ve been eating or drinking too much, you can opt to skip the black pepper. On the other hand if you want your entire body to benefit from curcumin, then you can add the pepper. Adding fat, such as coconut oil, also helps with bioavailability.

 

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 teaspoons of honey
  • 1 inch turmeric root or 1 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1 inch ginger root
  • 1 cup hemp or almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 2 teaspoons of honey
  • a sprinkling of black pepper
  • high CBD tincture

 

 

Procedure:

 

Warm the milk and add all the ingredients into a blender or food processor. Pour into a mug and drink. This potent anti-inflammatory drink can also be served cold or with ice. You can also make a big batch and store it in your refrigerator.

 

Another way to enjoy this anti-inflammatory drink is to make a paste out of it then simply add to a mixture of warm water and milk whenever you want to. Adjust the addition of pepper, ginger, honey, and turmeric based on your preferences. Some like their drink to be sweeter while others enjoy it spicy.
