Medicated Turmeric Golden Latte

Cooking with Cannabis

Medicated Turmeric Golden Latte

Turmeric Tea or Golden Lattes have been a huge buzzword since 2016. If you’ve been in the wellness world for a while, you probably know about the immense amounts of nutritional and healing benefits turmeric has. If you haven’t tried a golden latte yet, you’re missing out! It is a creamy and dairy-free hot drink that’s packed with nutrients. By adding cannabis to this delicious and potent latte, not only will you be ingesting the nutrients of turmeric and ginger but you will be getting a lot of benefits from the cannabis plant as well. Turmeric may be one of the most effective nutritional supplement in existence. Curcumin is a component found in Turmeric that is strongly anti-inflammatory. In fact, curcumin is so powerful that it matches the effectiveness of some anti-inflammatory drugs, without the side effects.


When is the Best Time to Drink a Medicated Golden Latte?

There’s no wrong way to drink this medicated golden latte. However, due to the specific spices and herbs in this drink, studies have shown that this combination may help with better, restful sleep and relaxation. This drink is very warming and comforting, which is why I enjoy drinking this in the evening. Consuming turmeric supports digestion, immune function, liver function, and may even offer protection from some types of cancer.

What I love about this medicated golden latte recipe is that this drink actually maximizes the natural antioxidant power of turmeric because it is served hot and is combined with other beneficial spices and a little bit of fat.
