Curious about CBD edibles? You’ve reached the right place.

CBD has exploded in recent years as one of the fastest-growing trends in global health and wellness, and for good reason. Dozens of clinical trials and scientific studies are coming out every month, proving the many health benefits CBD has to offer. 

If you are in treatment for a serious illness like Parkinson’s disease, Crohn’s disease, PTSD, Cancer or MS, CBD can offer be of great assistance. But cannabidiol (as it’s called by scientists) can also help attenuate milder conditions like everyday stress, insomnia, anxiety, arthritis and acne, which is why everyone should get informed on the many benefits of this natural, plant-derived chemical compound.

What are CBD Edibles?

There’s no big mystery behind CBD edibles. Basically, these are snacks, juicies, drinks, candy and other foods which have been infused or laced with CBD.

CBD is a naturally-occuring chemical compound that is extracted from the cannabis plant through several processes that make sure it preserves its purity and effectiveness. Afterwards, it can be included in different types of products that vary in the way they’re intaken.

CBD can come in the form of oils, sublingual drops, creams, gels, topicals, vape pen oils, smokable flowers and lastly, as edibles.

What Are the Benefits of CBD Edibles?

CBD edibles bring the same health benefits as other forms of CBD products, but can have some special advantages. Let’s check out what these are:

Discretion: Although there’s nothing to be ashamed about consuming CBD, some people may prefer to keep their CBD use quiet. Since edibles don’t generate smell of fumes as smokables do, they can be eaten everywhere without anyone noticing. Most CBD edibles come in common packaging which doesn’t differentiate from any food or snack. This delivery method is also beneficial for people who want to take their CBD in smoke-free environments.n

Exact dosing: When it comes to CBD smokables, it can be hard to get an exact dose. This can be a problem because getting an exact CBD dosage is very important in order to achieve the desired results. Trustworthy brands of CBD edible products will include exact dosing parameters in their packaging which can be verified through third-party lab-testing.

Long-lasting effect: Since CBD edibles allow for CBD to enter the body through the digestive tract, instead of the lungs of the skin, absorption happens at a slower rate, which allows for CBD to continue its effect for longer periods of time. 

Keep in mind though, that while the effect will last longer, it’ll also take longer to take effect. While smoked or vaped CBD will begin its effect after just a few minutes of use, CBD edibles can last between 30 minutes to a couple of hours to reach our endocannabinoid receptors.

The delicious factor: CBD edibles can be an effective way to take CBD, but they can also be an exquisitely tasty experience. Chefs have only just begun experimenting with CBD recipes, and the market is being flooded with delicious CBD products that come in all shapes and sizes. From cookies, power bars, chocolate bars, gummies and popcorn, to smoothies, breath sprays, coffees, and vinaigrettes. Want a vegan or organic option? You won’t have trouble finding it.
