CBD has quickly become one of the most popular supplements available on the market today. There are many different ways to administer CBD into one’s daily life, one of the most popular methods being consuming CBD-infused edibles. This is the perfect option for those wishing to avoid the harshness that is often associated with smoking or vaping. In this guide, we have compiled everything that you need to know about consuming CBD-infused foods and other edibles.
Everything You Need to Know About CBD Edibles
CBD-infused edibles are created by first extracting cannabidiol (CBD), from either the cannabis plant or (more commonly) industrial hemp. These oils are then made suitable for consumption and are often infused into a variety of foodstuffs. Orally administering CBD is often preferred over many other methods because it is discreet, tastes delicious, and is highly convenient.
CBD Edibles are Easy to Dose
A common problem with other CBD administration methods is that it can be challenging to determine precisely how much cannabidiol you are ingesting with each dose. Most CBD edibles are sold in pre-dosed servings – enabling consumers to calculate precisely how much CBD has been consumed.
CBD Edibles are Discreet
Many forms of CBD application prove to be impractical or otherwise cumbersome. Even pocket-sized vape pens can be quite large, and it may not always be convenient to pull out a vaporizer for every dose. Simply toss back a CBD gummy bear or two and get back to work – no vape break required.
Buying CBD Edibles
Whether you choose to order your CBD edibles through an online vendor or in a brick-and-mortar storefront, the process should be simple, safe, and easy. Reputable vendors of CBD frequently conduct third-party lab tests on each of their products to ensure quality and consistency. Lab test results for each product can be found on the vendor’s website.
How Much are CBD Edibles?
Just like any other item, the price of CBD-infused products varies widely depending upon numerous individual factors chiefly related to content ratios and culinary craftsmanship. Generally, it is advised not to spend more than $10 per 100mg of any CBD-infused product. Again, it is highly recommended to thoroughly read any and all product labeling.
What’s the Difference Between CBD and THC-Infused Edibles?
Cannabidiol (CBD) and delta-nine-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) are two completely separate cannabinoids. Aside from their differing effects, one crucial differentiating factor between the two is legality. CBD-infused products are legal in all 50 states, so long as federal and state regulations are followed. In contrast, THC and other cannabis-related products are only permitted in areas with state-sanctioned medical marijuana programs.
What are the Best CBD Edibles?
This is entirely dependent upon you, the consumer, and what you are looking for in a CBD-infused product. The popularity of CBD edibles is steadily growing. Some of the most commonly purchased edibles consist of gummies, cookies, and other baked foods, chocolates, and taffies. There are even specialty products like gums and candies, as well as CBD-infused coffee and drinks!
