Flower Power Tea

Flower Power Tea is made of herbs and herbs’ flowers, specifically raw hemp, marigolds and mint. It is the new best thing since sunshine and mother’s healing kisses – only this “potion” has the potential to kill MRSA, Streptococcus pneumoniae and gastrointestinal strep. Each of these infectious diseases are caused by antibiotic resistance.

Man, it is like this hemp craze came along at just the right time – when we ran out of safe antibiotics. On top of that, we have this new dazzling research on eating our flowers. Thank you, Jesus. But it is probably not wise to forego professional medical advice because human trials have not been completed.

“The naturally occurring but unstable CBD acid (CBDA) is a thousand times more potent than CBD in binding to a particular serotonin receptor thought to be responsible for alleviating nausea and anxiety,” as reported in an interview with Raphael Mechoulam, an Israeli organic chemist and professor of medicinal chemistry at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Mechoulam is considered the “father of cannabis” because he discovered the endocannabinoid system.

When making hemp tea, use raw hemp that has not been treated with heat for the raw analytes CBDA and THCA.

Consider Flower Power Tea as a back-up plan and holistic “funky” dessert.

There are many reasons to choose Flower Power tea. “The phenolic compounds in flowers are richer sources than fruits or vegetables for the antioxidant capacities against free radical damage” (Chitrakar, Zhang, & Bhandari, (2019).

This recipe was created for fighting infections, viruses and aches and pains. Studies have also shown that ingredients in Flower Power Tea can fight colon cancer and other types of cancers, as well as cleanse the lymphatic system and even fight aging.

Flower Power Tea

Dried Tagetes Marigolds 1/4 cup

Dried hemp flower 1/8 cup

Mint, dried or fresh, 1/4 cup

2 cups hot water

Boil water in glass in microwave or in stainless steel kettle on stove top. Place the dry ingredients into a food processor and pulverize or crush with pestle. Add the three crushed ingredients and steep for 30 minutes. Strain into cup. Add honey if desired. Add a dab of cream or coconut oil to assist bioavailability of hemp analytes. Slowly sip in the earthy freshness.

Benefits of Tagetes Marigolds –

“The pharmacological effect of T. patula includes antioxidant activity, anti-inflammatory activity, antifungal activity, antibacterial activity, hypertensive and hypotensive activities. See Table 4.” It has been used to relieve menstrual cramps and soothe upset stomachs.

Ciccio, 2004.

Benefits of Hemp Flower –

My hemp garden thrives with Tagetes Marigolds.

Hemp flower does everything that Tagetes Marigolds do, and more. Recently, an Australian study concluded: “Cannabidiol possesses surprisingly effective activity as an antibiotic, comparable to widely used antibiotics for Gram positive infections such as vancomycin and daptomycin, but with retention of activity against bacteria that have become resistant to these drugs. Given cannabidiol’s documented anti-inflammatory effects, extensive safety data in humans, and potential for oral delivery, it is a promising new antibiotic. The combination of inherent antimicrobial activity and potential to reduce damage caused by the inflammatory response to infections is particularly attractive” (Kavanagh, et.al., (2019).

The study method: Cannabidiol was tested with in vivo activity against MRSA and was found to be “remarkably effective at killing a range of Gram-positive (but not Gram-negative) bacteria, with broth microdilution MICs similar to clinical antibiotics such as vancomycin and daptomycin. Notably, activity was retained against-resistant strains of S. aureus (MRSA, VISA, VRSA), Streptococcus pneumoniae (MDR) and E. faecalis (VRE). Cannabidiol was bactericidal, showed low levels of propensity to induce resistance, and was active against MRSA biofilms” (Kavanagh, et.al., (2019).

Benefits of Mint –

Besides the pleasant taste, mint offers antimicrobial and antioxidant properties.

This tea recipe has been brought to you by an avid user. I love this stuff!
