CBD edibles are becoming more popular and easier to find, and for good reason! They are tasty and allow you to experience the benefits of CBD disguised in a delicious treat. As with anything you put into your body, it is important to consume them responsibly and not overdo it. In this video we’ll address some common questions about CBD edibles.
Almost any food or beverage that you can think of probably can also be found in a CBD version. Drinks from coffee and tea to sweets like brownies, cookies and gummies can all be made into CBD edibles.
CBD is the active ingredient in CBD edibles that promotes that feeling of relaxation and a sense of well being. The acronym CBD stands for cannabidiol. CBD can be found in the Cannabis sativa plant, which contains more than 100 other cannabinoids, in addition to phytochemicals, terpenes and many other compounds.
Unlike with smoking, vaporizing, or taking CBD sublingually, you feel the effects much slower when you ingest it. When you eat an edible the body needs time to metabolize and digest the food in order to feel its effects. How quickly you feel it will depend on your metabolism. Those with slower metabolisms probably won’t feel the effects for two hours or more, while people with faster metabolism might feel it just after an hour. It just depends on your body.
As with how long it takes to feel a CBD edible, how long the effects last also depend on a variety of factors. The strength of the edible, how much you consume, your metabolism, and how much food is in your stomach before you eat it are just a few of the factors. You may be wondering what type of dose you should look to take?
As a rule of thumb, most places recommend 10mg as a dose. However everyone’s body and tolerance levels are different so listen to your body and see what feels best for you.
Keep an eye out for products that are clearly labeled and properly packaged. Also make sure to read carefully what the serving size is for the dose of CBD you are looking for. It’s best to do your own research and see what type of products you feel best taking.
