Holistic Hemp Scotland cultivates craftsmanship.

Holistic Hemp Scotland is a small Scottish company that has been in the business of providing high-quality CBD products since 2016. This brand manufactures its CBD products from hemp that has been grown on small farms in the EU. These cannabis plants are raised without the use of pesticides or any artificial fertilizers. What’s more, the crops are grown using biodynamic farming. Holistic Hemp Scotland sources their hemp only from farms that do not harvest plants with cutting machines, instead, the cannabis flowers are always hand-trimmed and slowly cured at natural temperatures.

The CBD products offered by Holistic Hemp Scotland contain a full spectrum of cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids. The CBD and cannabinoids are extracted through CO2 extraction in conditions that preserve the unique nutritional content of the hemp plant. The Cannabis Extract is used to produce pastes, oils, capsules, tea, coffee, and even honey.

Holistic Hemp Scotland is a member of the UK Cannabis Trades Association. Moreover, they are supporters of the United Patients Alliance.

What do the lab test results say about Holistic Hemp Scotland Luxury Hemp Tea?

COA – Third-party lab results of Holistic Hemp Scotlands Luxury Hemp Tea

Unfortunately, there is no batch number on the packaging of the tea. Lab test results are not published on their website, so you must email Holistic Hemp Scotland to request a copy of the lab results. I did send such a request, and the Certification of Analysis which I received in reply was prepared by Adact Medical and showed the cannabinoid profile of the Holistic Hemp Scotland Luxury Hemp Tea: The tested sample contained 0.7035% of CBDA and 0.1474% of CBD. It also had 0.0292% of CBGA. This puts the total CBD content of the tea at a little under 1%. That’s a very small amount. Other cannabinoids (and THC) accounted for less than 0.0005% of the sample, so it’s an insignificant amount.

My personal experience with Holistic Hemp Scotland Luxury Hemp Tea

Holistic Hemp Scotland Luxury Hemp Tea review

Holistic Hemp Scotland Luxury Hemp Tea 5% at first glance.

I’ve never tried hemp tea, so I was excited when I ordered this product. Luckily, this tea met my expectations. At first sight, I really liked the luxurious design of the black tin package. I’m sure that when all the tea bags are gone, I’m confident that I will reuse the attractive tin can as a storage container.

When you open the tin, you will notice the typical earthy smell of hemp. Inside the package, I found 15 tea bags made from biodegradable material. The bags are quite stiff and don’t sink very well in the teacup; that did leave me wondering exactly what kind of material they are made off, but they functioned perfectly well as containers for the tea.

Let’s brew Luxury Hemp Tea

The infusing instructions provided by the manufacturer suggest that the tea should be brewed at 80-90 degrees Celsius. When you’re done with brewing your tea you can save the bag for a second infusion. While making the first infusion it is recommended that you keep the tea bag in hot water for 3-5 minutes, but during the second infusion, the time should be extended to 5-7 minutes to ensure maximum flavor release.

After brewing it the second time, you can get rid of the teabag. Remember that it’s made of biodegradable material, so you can place it in the bin with compostable food waste.

Holistic Hemp Scotland suggests adding a splash of Cannabis Honey (which they also offer on their website), coconut oil, or plant-based milk whilst steeping to optimally extract the cannabinoids and create a smooth, relaxing brew. They recommend adding these things during the final minute of infusing.

How does Luxury Hemp Tea taste?

How does Luxury Hemp Tea taste?

The instructions to brew Luxury Hemp Tea are very easy to follow, so just a few minutes after opening the package I was enjoying the flavor of my first cup of hemp tea. I love drinking tea, but I don’t like most herbal teas like chamomile or dandelion tea. To my surprise, I really liked the hemp tea from the first sip. I decided not to add any plant-based milk or any sweetener because I wanted to check its taste. From the very first moments, I felt very calm and relaxed, as with the best teas. I’m afraid that this effect stayed with me only for a couple of minutes.

I also brewed a second hemp tea from the same bag a few times. The flavor wasn’t as strong, even with a longer brew time, so I added a little bit of almond milk to it. I prefer the taste of the Luxury Hemp Tea brewed for the first time, as I do prefer a stronger infusion.

Effects of drinking Holistic Hemp Scotland Luxury Hemp Tea over time.

This herbal infusion is my go-to when I need to relax after a hectic day. I tested it in December, which is an especially busy and stressful period of the year for most people. That’s why I appreciated Holistic Hemp Scotland Luxury Hemp Tea even more. A cup of the tea quickly gave me the relaxation that I needed. I created a small, nighttime routine with this tea. It helped me to relax before going to sleep. There is something very soothing in sipping this delicious tea on a cold day while sitting in a cozy and warm room. Holistic Hemp Scotland Luxury Hemp Tea doesn’t contain any caffeine, so I was able to easily fall asleep after drinking it.

What’s more, the tea keeps you hydrated. During the day I often forget to drink enough water. Coffee and some teas are natural diuretics, so they make you lose more water. Sadly, this tea didn’t have that effect and I felt hydrated after drinking it.

Good things about this Luxury Hemp Tea

Good things about this Luxury Hemp Tea

Holistic Hemp Scotland has created a high-quality product that tastes great. Everyone who likes craftsmanship will appreciate that this tea comes from artisan farms and it is hand-harvested. To my surprise, the taste of the tea is very pleasant. It’s caffeine-free so you can drink it at night without worrying that it might disturb your sleep cycle. Moreover, the tea bags are biodegradable, so I would consider this product as environmentally friendly.

Bad things about this Luxury Hemp Tea

Personally, I think that the second infusion of the tea doesn’t taste great; for me, it’s not strong enough. Also, the tea bags are quite stiff, and they do not sink into the bottom of the teacup very well; they float at the surface of the tea, which is a bit unexpected. Another disadvantage of Luxury Hemp tea is the price. It’s not a product that everyone can afford to drink daily – this would be somewhat remedied if the bags could be used twice to receive the same effect, however, the second infusion simply isn’t as good as the first. Last, but not least, this product contains very little CBD, so you may not experience any positive effects from consuming it.

    How do you know which product/oil helps you if you consume so many all the time. Some oils might have an accumulative effect so you might mistakenly attribute the effect to another oil which you started soon after.

      Hi Lilia!
      That’s a really great question – thank you for asking. The reviews are subjective by nature but we create a set of parameters and guidelines, checking for many things in addition to “effectiveness” (the most subjective). The reviews are meant to give you an in-depth look into a particular brand or product when making decisions about your own individual health and well being. As with any substance, we really do not know whether there has been a cumulative effect or, conversely, a built-up tolerance in the particular user.

    I am using hemp tea for the last one year. I am facing sleeping disorders. In my opinion, I am fine after the usage. Hemp tea tastes great. If you are also facing trouble sleeping, take a cup of hemp tea in the evening and see the magic. I hope it works for you too.
