CBD Edibles: Is It Worth The Hype?

CBD Edibles: Is It Worth The Hype?

One of the most popular ways to use CBD is through edibles. Edibles are foods or drinks infused with CBD, and they're often made with cannabis-infused butter, coconut oil, olive oil, or any other food-safe oil.

If you're an avid consumer of CBD products, chances are you've looked into consuming them in a different way than how you might have in the past. Edibles are one of the most popular ways to consume CBD. What gives them their appeal? What are their benefits? Should you choose to go with edibles or stick with more traditional methods like vaping or dabbing? In this article we'll cover everything there is to know about ingesting your CBD


Different types of CBD edibles

CBD edibles come in various forms such as gummies, hard candies, chocolates, cookies, and cakes. Although CBD edibles were not really common until recently, they are becoming more popular than ever. One of the main reasons for this is that some medical professionals prefer them to CBD oil and CBD sublingual simply based on patient compliance. CBD gummies are very easy to take and can be swallowed with just a few sips of water. They also taste delicious, which makes them a great option for people who don’t like the taste of edibles or want something that is more convenient than oils and sublingual. 


The Benefits of CBD edibles

The benefits of CBD edibles have been gaining traction in society, and they are not just limited to medical uses. Edible CBD products provide many different ways to ingest this powerful substance. Here’s a quick rundown of the CBD edible benefits:

  • They're easy to take on the go and don't require any special equipment. They are easy to carry around with you and use anywhere you go—in a car, at work, or even when you’re out and about in public. You don’t have to worry about carrying around a vape pen or finding somewhere safe to put it down while you take a puff. Just grab a gummy, piece of chocolate or cookie and enjoy!
  • You can adjust your dosage easily. If you want more effect, just eat more! CBD edibles also allow for more precise dosing than other methods like vaping because it takes longer for the effects of ingesting CBD rather than inhaling it directly into your lungs like vaping does.
  • They work well for those who don't like inhaling their medicine whether it's due to a sensitive respiratory system or just individual preference.

Eating vs. Inhaling: Which is better? 

When it comes to consuming CBD, there are two main methods: you can either eat it/ingest it or smoke/vape/dab it. Each method has its own pros and cons, but when it comes down to determining which one is better than the other, the answer is that they both have their benefits. 

Eating/Ingesting 

Eating is a great way to consume CBD because it's efficient and easy. It allows you to get the benefits of CBD quickly and easily, without having to go through the hassle of vaping. In addition, edibles are also more discreet. When you eat a CBD edible, there is no strong odor that can linger around in public spaces and attract unwanted attention from people who may not know what you're doing. Another benefit of eating your cannabis is that the effects tend to last longer than when you vape it. This is because when you ingest CBD through edibles, it takes longer for your body to metabolize it into active compounds so that they can enter the bloodstream. This means that the effects of CBD edibles can last anywhere from 4-6 hours on average, depending on your metabolism and how much CBD you consume.


Inhaling
Inhaling CBD is a great way to get the effects of CBD quickly. When you inhale CBD, it goes straight into your lungs and enters the bloodstream from there. This can be an ideal method for people who need immediate relief from anxiety or pain, or anyone who needs quick access to their CBD throughout the day.

It is important to note that smoking ANYTHING involves carcinogens. This is true for CBD as well. Heating up the substance to the temperature required to smoke can release harmful chemicals into the lungs. Vaping is done at a lower temperature without the combustion and while not confirmed many feel it may be safer than smoking in the long term.
CBD that is consumed through vaping it tends to have a quicker onset than edibles, but the effects also tend to wear off more quickly. This is because when you inhale CBD, your body metabolizes the substance it into its active compounds very quickly before they enter your bloodstream. The effects of CBD inhalation usually only last between 1-3 hours on average; however, this can vary depending on how much CBD you consume and how fast your body processes it.

CBD Edibles

CBD gummies are a great alternative to CBD oil for patients who prefer edibles. They are an easy and tasty way to get your daily dose of cannabidiol. They provide the same benefits as sublingual in an easy-to-consume form. 

They are absorbed through the mucosal membranes in your mouth and throat. This is why it’s important to chew well if you’re consuming edibles; otherwise, the CBD won’t be able to enter your bloodstream. As soon as you swallow the CBD gummies, they get digested by your stomach acid and pass through your small intestine into your bloodstream where they can interact with receptors throughout your body.

Once in the bloodstream, CBD binds to cannabinoid receptors on cells throughout the body. These receptors are responsible for regulating a variety of processes such as pain sensation, mood, and memory.


CBD Edibles VS inhaling CBD?

There are benefits to using both products, but each one has unique properties that make it an ideal choice for specific situations.

If you're looking for an alternative to vaping cannabis products, CBD edibles may be right for you. For example, if you're looking for a product to help you relax and unwind at the end of the day, then CBD edibles may be your best option. 

On the other hand, if you need relief from chronic pain or anxiety and want something that will kick in faster than traditional edibles (which can take 30-60 minutes to work), then vaping might be better suited for your needs.  Vaping may be better for those who want a quick-acting, immediate effect. Vaping allows you to get the benefits of CBD in an instant, but they're less precise than edibles because it's difficult to control how much of the medicine you consume each time you use them. 

CBD edibles are also easier on your lungs than other methods of consumption like vaping, which is beneficial for those with sensitive respiratory systems. 


The bottom line:

CBD edibles are a great way to experience the benefits of full-spectrum cannabinoid supplements. Consuming CBD orally has no psychoactive effect and can be consumed by anyone who wants to get the calming benefits of CBD that can ease daily stress or improve sleep quality. So if you're looking for an alternative to vaping CBD oil or even sublingual administration, or simply want something that tastes better, CBD gummies are your best choice!
