11 Nov Should I Use CBD Edibles?
With so many choices in CBD products, how do you choose the right one for you? Here are a few reasons why you may elect to get your daily serving of CBD through CBD edibles.
Of all the various types of CBD products available, CBD edibles have surged the most dramatically in popularity, as CBD oil consumers discover the unique advantages of CBD edibles like CBD energy chews.
CBD edibles are largely considered to include any food or beverage product that is infused with CBD, the all-natural cannabinoid derived from hemp that encourages balance and promotes wellness.
Here are some of the reasons why CBD edibles may be the ideal daily CBD product for you.
Easy Introduction to CBD Edibles
For those interested in experiencing the natural wellness properties of CBD but are unsure how to take CBD or are nervous about selecting the right method of consumption, CBD edibles are a great place to start.
Perhaps reluctant to vape or use CBD under the tongue, first time CBD users and those who have been taking CBD for only a short time are often more comfortable or willing to try CBD edibles. However, CBD edibles like those from HempMeds® are a great choice in CBD product for a wide range of CBD consumers.
Everyone is familiar and comfortable with swallowing and ingesting food and health products. Fitting easily into your existing vitamin routine, CBD edibles are crafted with flavor in mind, making CBD edible products like CBD Gems and CBD energy chews a convenient and tasty way to get a daily serving of CBD.
Why Use CBD Oil?
If you are new to CBD oil products, then you may be asking, “Why should I use CBD oil?” Growing in popularity due to its wellness benefits, CBD helps to keep your body functioning at its best by promoting balance within your systems.
So what is CBD? A natural compound found in cannabis plants like hemp, CBD is a member of a class of over 100 compounds called cannabinoids.
When CBD is consumed in a CBD edible, it is digested and processed by the liver before passing into your bloodstream to be transported around the body where CBD interacts with specific cannabinoid receptors.
These cannabinoid receptors are part of the body’s endocannabinoid system, a regulatory system responsible for maintaining homeostasis throughout your body. CBD interacts with these cannabinoid receptors to provide its many health and wellness benefits.
Add Variety to Your Daily CBD Routine with CBD Edibles
CBD edibles can be an enjoyable way to change up your everyday CBD routine. Perhaps CBD capsules have been a part of your morning routine or you’ve been taking CBD tinctures under your tongue at lunch, and you are looking for something different.
You can try adding CBD edibles to your existing CBD routine to add some tasty variety to your CBD regimen. Low potency CBD products like CBD Gems and CBD energy chews are great for sustaining CBD levels in your system throughout the day.
A Discreet Way to Use CBD
With little to no odor and an appearance similar to everyday foods, CBD edibles are an ideal choice for those looking for a discreet way to add CBD to their system each day. With CBD infused edibles, you don’t have to worry about disrupting nearby friends, family, or coworkers.
Typically bite-sized, CBD edibles are also extremely convenient for using CBD while you’re out and about. Pack your CBD edibles in your backpack, purse, or gym bag, or keep them at your desk at work for fast use whenever you want. With CBD edibles, your CBD never needs to be out of reach.
Whether taken during your coffee break or before you stop for lunch, you only need a minute out of your day to add CBD to your diet with CBD edibles. Plus, because CBD oil products from hemp like those from HempMeds® are non-intoxicating, they won’t cause any euphoric effects and are safe to use at work.
How CBD Edibles Differ From Other CBD Products
Convenient and discreet, edible CBD products do have a couple of distinct differences that make them stand out among other types of CBD products that you should be aware of when deciding whether CBD edibles are best for you.
When you swallow and digest CBD products such as edibles, the compounds pass through the digestive system and are metabolized by your liver before entering the bloodstream, where they are able to interact with cannabinoid receptors throughout the body.
It’s through this interaction with the cannabinoid receptors that CBD stimulates the endocannabinoid system, promoting balance and wellness.
Compared to some other consumption methods, like vaping or absorbing CBD under the tongue, ingesting CBD edibles is slower acting. Because the CBD and other compounds in the edible must first pass through the digestive system, it can take as much as 30 minutes to an hour before CBD and other compounds are delivered to the bloodstream.
Each person’s body and their system are unique, and no one reacts to CBD products the same way. How quickly your body absorbs CBD can be influenced by a myriad of factors, including age, health, hereditary genetics, circulation, metabolism, tolerance, and more.
