CBD Edibles

Cannabidiol is a natural compound found in the cannabis plant. Abbreviated as CBD, it's becoming one of the best-known of these natural compounds other than THC. Unlike THC, CBD doesn't come with intoxicating or psychoactive effects since CBD products only contain a maximum of 0.3% concentration of THC content.

One of the most popular ways to consume CBD is through edible products. Nothing But Hemp offers a wide selection of edibles for sale, and we're always happy to provide guidance about the best CBD edibles for your needs and tastes.

What Are CBD Edibles?

CBD-infused edibles, just as the name implies, are simply cannabidiol supplements designed to be ingested in edible forms. They can include CBD gummies — in fact, they're probably most popular in gummy form — but also include a wide range of other forms, including capsules and tablets, chocolates and caramels, and sublingual tinctures. Edibles contain CBD in pre-measured amounts that let you know precisely what dosage is in each portion, and it lasts longer in your system than it would through other consumption methods.

How Do I Use CBD Edibles?

Before you embark on the use of CBD edibles, it's important to consult with your doctor. It's always possible for CBD to interact in unexpected ways with medications — not to mention with any other substances such as alcohol — and because of this, cannabidiol isn't necessarily for everyone. A medical professional should have a total picture of your health regimen and how CBD would fit into it before you start using CBD-infused edibles.

When you first start with CBD edibles, you may wish to start small, for example, by cutting a gummy into smaller pieces and eating them one by one rather than eating it in one go. However, this isn't as necessary as it would be with THC edibles, which are psychoactive in a way that CBD is not.

How Do CBD Edibles Work?

A series of receptors and transmitters in the human body — called the endocannabinoid system or ECS — interacts with cannabinoid compounds harvested from the cannabis plant. One of those compounds is CBD, which in edible form needs to be processed by the digestive tract before it hits your bloodstream and begins to produce noticeable effects. Because the ECS regulates a wide range of processes in the body, ranging from pain management to inflammation, mood, sleep, and digestion, a wide range of positive effects have been associated with CBD and its related compounds.

How Long Does It Take for Edible CBD to Kick In?

A range of factors — age and weight, previous exposure, digestion — can affect the rate at which your body absorbs CBD. This, in aggregate, is called bioavailability, and it directly governs how long it takes for a CBD edible to kick in. A typical range for feeling the effects falls between half an hour and 2 hours. These effects typically last longer than those from vapes or tinctures, with a usual duration running from 6-8 hours.

Different Types of Edibles

CBD edibles come in a wide variety of forms and flavor options with a range of different specific compositions. In their purest form, they're made with CBD isolates, meaning they contain only CBD. In other cases, they may be broad-spectrum CBD containing other cannabinoids except for THC or full-spectrum, including trace amounts of either Delta 8 or Delta 9 THC. In the case of full-spectrum CBD, the THC levels would be present in a concentration of 0.3% or less.

Edibles may come in the form of anything from gummies, space taffy, and ice cream to gelato mixes, chocolates, caramels, and more. Natural flavor options are abundant, such as sour apple and watermelon. There's, in short, plenty of latitude for finding the best CBD edibles for you.

What Are the Benefits of CBD?

High-quality CBD edible products use hemp plants grown and cultivated in America, with their contents verified by third-party lab tests. Verifying the contents of an edible does not, however, mean one can make specific health claims about their effects. We can identify a range of effects that users commonly report from CBD:

  • Improved and more restful sleep
  • Relaxation
  • Relief from pain
  • Reduced inflammation

These may be effects associated with a CBD edible, but the compounds work differently depending on the consumer. You should always consult a medical professional about the potential impact of any cannabinoid product.

Are CBD Edibles Legal?

The 2018 US Farm Bill legalized products that are derived from industrial hemp and contain less than 0.3% THC by dry weight. All CBD edibles produced to those standards are federally legal, although some may face continued shipping restrictions in a handful of states.
