Cannabidiol (CBD) edibles have become an extremely popular go-to for people who want to enjoy the non-psychotropic effects of cannabis (including a sense of relaxation and anxiety-reduction) without the need to smoke or vape. People have started taking CBD Gummies, which is a more convenient way to incorporate CBD into your diet.
CBD use has experienced a recent surge in part because CBD is legal in Canada and certain U.S. states, which allows people to enjoy its positive effects without legal fears.
Below, we’ll talk about some CBD facts and also lay out some tips for optimal enjoyment.
CBD is a naturally occurring chemical that is derived from hemp and cannabis plants. It interacts with our endocannabinoid system, a complex network of interconnected cannabinoid receptors. The network distributes the compound into the bloodstream, which then allows us to experience several therapeutic effects.
With a number of specialty producers now working to bring tasteful, mature products to market including cannabis-infused gummies and teas, now is the perfect time to get into the hobby of CBD use if you’ve been holding back.
CBD edibles are infused with cannabinoids, and whether these edibles take the form of delicious gummies, teas, or baked goods such as brownies, cookies, and chocolates edible cannabis products have become highly sought-after as alternatives to smoking or vaporizing.
Knowing you can enjoy the calming, relaxing sensation of CBD use as part of foods you already enjoy has made their use extremely popular among mature consumers. From soccer moms to doctors, dentists, and lawyers, more people than ever are branching out and trying CBD products.
If you’re excited to try it for yourself, we thought we’d provide a few tips.
Forget the High
Remember that CBD products offer non-psychoactive features. People can find comfort and enjoyment without worrying about the high that comes with THC.
Enjoy the Health Benefits
CBD edibles hold an extensive index of health benefits. These range from alleviating chronic aches to easing anxiety. For years, people have been relying on CBD for relief from anxiety, pain, inflammation, insomnia, nausea, and even a wide range of digestive issues.
Be Aware of the Effects
Anyone who ingests cannabis should be aware of its effects. The effects of ingesting cannabis last longer than when you smoke or vape it. You should be aware that the effects can last upwards of 12 hours, with some minor residual effects lasting up to 24 hours.
While CBD use is not as intense as THC, it should still be noted that you might experience lingering feelings the next day.
Practice Safe Use
If you are new to edibles or to cannabis in general, be sure to only ingest these products in a safe and familiar place, with friends or family who are experienced in these products and their effects.
If you plan to use edible cannabis at someone else’s home, be sure to make travel arrangements ahead of time or plan to stay overnight. While CBD does not have an intense high associated with it, general advice dictates not driving afterward.
Finally, cannabis products such as CBD should not be mixed with a large quantity of alcohol. Mixing a relaxing CBD gummy with a glass of wine is fine, but do not overindulge as this could increase your risk of impairment.
