Is it legal to grow hemp?
Yes, the hemp varieties that we use for our hemp tea are legal to grow in Europe. They are strains of the so called ‘fibre hemp’, that fall within the EU maximum norm of 0,2% THC (THC is the psychoactive compound, of which 5-20% can be found in the marijuana plant). So our hemp plants can absolutely not make you high or stoned. We use the varieties Fedore 17 and Futura 75. These varieties are all registrered in the EU plant variety database as listed on the website of the European commission.
How should I prepare the hemp tea?
Everyone has his or her own way to prepare tea, and that’s fine!. As a guideline we can say: put Dutch Harvest in a stainless steel tea egg or tea filter, or in a paper tea filter. Use approximately 1 gram / 1 teaspoon for a cup of tea, and make sure there is enough space for the ingredients to unfold. Let water boil and pour it over the tea. Let it tea brew for about 5-7 minutes. We recommend removing the tea infuser or tea filter so that the tea does not become too strong.
Preferably use a tea infuser that is made of stainless steel, not metal. This is because metal can react with the tea and influence the taste.
You can also make iced tea based on Dutch Harvest, check out some recipes here.
What is the best way to store Dutch Harvest hemp tea?
You can keep Dutch Harvest in the packaging in which you bought it, that protects the tea sufficiently. Of course you can also keep the tea in an airtight tin. In any case, make sure that the tea is not near other herbs and spices with a strong aroma. This way the tea does not absorb other smells and tastes. Always keep the tea in a dark, cool and dry place (but not in the fridge!).

Some people may experience a beneficial effect of this. However, we prefer not to sell it explicitly under the name ‘CBD tea’ because we do not want to create the impression that our hemp tea is a medicine. Read more about the effect of hemp tea here.

The hemp plants we use for hemp tea always contain less than 0.2% THC (in our tea there is even no THC at all) and have no psychoactive effect. You can’t get stoned or high at all!
