CBD Edibles
An introduction to CBD infused edibles

There is a broad variety of CBD products in the marketplace and consumers flock to them due to CBD’s scientifically researched ability to help with pain management, chronic inflammation, anxiety, and mood, as well as an array of other conditions.

CBD can potentially help with many common and chronic ailments is because of its ability to interact with the body’s Endocannabinoid System. The Endocannabinoid system, or ECS for short, is a network of receptors discovered in the early 1990’s that exist throughout different organs in the body, and it’s primary function is to maintain overall balance in the body and to regulate its functions.

The ECS uses naturally occurring endocannabinoids in the body to send signals between different receptors and to communicate new information to the brain. Because CBD cannabinoids are very close in composition to endocannabinoids found in the body, CBD is able to interact with the ECS’s receptors and support the body and optimal function.

In recent years, many studies have been performed on CBD’s abilities to help with anxiety, pain, and inflammation. Chiropractors, cafe owners, trainers, and even chefs are exploring exciting and innovative ways of adding and infusing CBD into products they serve. You may be looking to integrate CBD into your diet or supplement regimen as well and it’s essential to understand how to pick the right CBD administration method for you.

Edibles Are Unique

Because edibles are consumed orally they have to pass through the digestive system before entering into the bloodstream. This makes edibles quite different from other products in terms of bioavailability. Bioavailability is the rate and intensity in which a product is metabolized and absorbed into the bloodstream. All the foods we consume have to first go through the digestive process before being absorbed into the bloodstream. This process diminishes the bioavailability of the CBD, meaning the CBD enters the bloodstream at a slower rate and a delayed onset of effects. Because CBD is absorbed at a slower rate, it is also filtered out slower. Meaning the effects and levels of CBD stay in the system for longer periods of time. 

Why Edibles?

Infused Edibles are the preferred method to consume CBD for many people and for many reasons. Let’s touch on why CBD Edibles might be the right choice for you.

Bioavailability and Onset of Effect:

Because CBD’s bioavailability is diminished when you consume it as part of an edible, so there is a longer period between consumption and the onset of effects. This could be an appealing quality if you don’t like to experience the onset of CBD’s properties or the effects of CBD all at once. Additionally, because CBD edibles pass through the liver into the bloodstream at a slower rate and is also exfiltrated at a slower rate. If you are looking for a consistent low presence of CBD in your system, you can benefit from this form of CBD administration.

Personal Preference:

Not a fan of CBD’s grassy taste? Edibles like gummies and chocolates are more meticulously formulated to taste with the recipe of other flavors taking the front seat over CBD. Capsules and pills virtually eliminate any tastes altogether. If you on the other hand like CBD’s earthy notes, there are CBD infused oils and sauces that will appeal to you.

If you like to bring your CBD on the go or prefer administering it in a discreet manner, there are CBD pretzels, honey, hard candies, popcorn, and pastilles.

More people are turning to CBD Edibles because they believe it to be a healthier and more environmentally friendly way of CBD consumptions. By eliminating vaping or smoking CBD Edibles you are taking care of you health. And by choosing products that are made with organic ingredients like raw honey or organic baked goods, you are not only protecting yourself but also the environment.
