All About CBD Edibles
The popularity of CBD is growing at a fast pace. Every day, more and more health-conscious consumers are turning to CBD for good health and wellness, making CBD edibles one of the fastest growing product categories in the world.
The making of CBD products begins by extracting essential oils from naturally grown agricultural hemp and refining the extract to produce CBD. The CBD is then added to a variety of products from cosmetics, to snack foods, to vape juice.
So which product should you choose? Well, that depends on what you want.
When to choose edibles
There are a variety of ways to get your CBD. Which method you choose should depend on your desired effect. Do you want it to take effect immediately for a quick lift? If so, you’re better off vaping. But if you want a longer-lasting and more even effect, then edibles are the way to go.
If you’re new to CBD, edibles are probably your best option.
Quick chemistry lesson: CBD and water don’t mix well, as cannabinoids are hydrophobic. Pure CBD making its way through your digestive system tends to get trapped in fatty tissues, where it’s more welcome, but does less good. In order to get around the chemistry issue, the CBD in edibles is generally dissolved in an oil - such as hemp oil. (On a side note, hemp oil has a whole host of vitamins and minerals and other beneficial compounds. In fact, it’s considered a “superfood” by nutritionists.)
When consumed orally, CBD in edibles takes its time making its way into your bloodstream, giving you a more even delivery and a longer lasting effect.

CBD oil can be quick and easy to use, or you can get creative and make something of it. If you want to get it quick, you can just drip a few drops under your tongue and go. It will make its way into your system quickly and effects should last at least a couple hours. If you want to have a little more fun with it, you can use CBD oil on your salad, add it to popcorn, mix it into your smoothies, etc.
CBD shots are another quick and easy way to get your CBD and go. Like CBD gummies, they’re easy to pack for your lunch or afternoon snack, or as an energy boost when you’re playing sports or enjoying the great outdoors.
