What are CBD edibles?

In the world of CBD, edibles are items of food that are infused with cannabidiol. Cannabidiol is extracted from the dry hemp flower through a variety of methods and then infused into food products for your convenience. There is something to suit all tastes in Green Goods’ CBD edibles category. Choose from chocolate bars and caramels, to CBD gummies and hard candies. If you need to watch your sugar intake then you can invest in sugar-free CBD candies. Or if you enjoy cooking and baking at home, then why not try making your own CBD edibles with Green Gorilla CBD olive oil, or this CBD infused coconut oil from Biovelle?

Buying CBD edibles online allows you a huge amount of choice when it comes to the flavors available, as well as the strength of the product itself. They are also practical for both beginners and experienced CBD users as they often come in handy unit sizes such as CBD gummy bears or squares of chocolate that make it really easy to dose (assuming you don’t get too carried away when you’re eating them).

Edibles as a Method of Consumption

Infused edibles are a preferred method of CBD consumption for many people that don’t enjoy taking tinctures, or oils. They are convenient to take, and allow the user extreme discretion. If you discard the wrapper then eating a CBD chocolate bar won’t look any different from eating a regular non-infused chocolate bar, and let’s not forget that they’re really tasty too!

Although CBD edibles effects are weaker than other methods of consumption, such as vaping or sublingual dosing, they are also longer lasting, making them ideal for relieving symptoms of chronic conditions, whether they be pain or anxiety.

How do Edibles Work?

So, why do edibles effects differ from other methods of consumption? The answer is found in the fact that as with all oral consumption methods, edibles have to be digested before entering your bloodstream. When taking CBD orally, whether it be through tinctures, capsules, or edibles, the product is metabolized by your liver which reduces the concentration of cannabidiol that ultimately reaches your bloodstream. This process lowers what is known as the bioavailability of the product.

As the CBD is released more slowly into your bloodstream it will also take a lot longer to leave your body, with effects lasting as long as seven hours. Also, when CBD is consumed with fatty acids, a higher amount is able to bypass first pass metabolism. This is the main reason that it is commonly infused with high fat foods and CBD chocolate effects are therefore likely to be slightly stronger than other less-fattening edibles.
