CBD edibles have become all the rave in recent days! If you're like me, you have likely seen them at your local pharmacy as well as your corner High Street market stores! While thousands of consumers are choosing CBD edibles, some are unfamiliar with exactly what these products are. If you are one of the many individuals who are not familiar with CBD edibles, this blog is for you! First, let's take a look at what CBD is.
CBD is short for cannabidiol. Cannabidiol is one of more than a hundred phytocannabinoids produced by hemp and cannabis plants. This cannabinoid was first isolated and discovered in the early 1900s, and in recent years, there has been much development surrounding how it interacts with our bodies. Over the past decade, the sales of CBD have skyrocketed around the world. This increase is mainly due to countries worldwide, including the UK reforming their laws around the legality of this cannabinoid. In the UK, CBD products are legal as long as they are made from EU-approved hemp cultivars containing less than .2% THC. CBD can be found in a wide variety of products ranging from CBD oils and CBD vape juice to CBD capsules, CBD bath bombs, and CBD edibles.
In the simplest of terms, edibles are any type of food or drink in which you consume. The term edibles is more commonly associated with food or beverage items that have been infused with cannabinoids such as CBD or THC. Sometimes CBD edibles are also called CBD Infused Edibles.
CBD edibles come in a wide variety. CBD can be found infused into edible products such as cookies, gummies, cakes, drinks, and more. Some CBD edibles are made utilizing CBD isolate, which is a 99% pure form of CBD that is nearly tasteless. However, other forms of CBD edibles are made using a full spectrum or broad-spectrum CBD product such as CBD oil. CBD edibles also come in a wide variety of different strengths ranging from very weak and only containing a few milligrams of CBD to being very strong and containing several hundred milligrams of CBD. Some CBD edibles offer no taste of CBD whatsoever, while some find that other products have a plant-like taste. This taste often comes from hemp-derived CBD and is more common in products made utilizing CBD oil seeing how CBD isolate is nearly flavourless and does not change the flavour of the product it is infused into.
While there are many CBD edibles available on the market today from online retailers such as CBD Oil King, and at local High Street markets, some people prefer to make their own CBD edibles at home. Making your own CBD edibles at home is relatively easy when you utilize a product known as CBD isolate. CBD isolate typically comes in the form of a white powder and is a 99% pure extracted form of this cannabinoid that contains no other phytonutrients or plant compounds. CBD edibles can be made at home by simply adding CBD isolate to drinks, to food, or to recipes when preparing food.
There are many reasons why consumers are choosing to utilize CBD in the form of CBD edibles. A lot of consumers love the discretion of CBD edibles. CBD edible such as cookies, beverages, and gummies look just like these products that have not been infused with CBD. That means that you can easily eat them or drink them around anyone, and they will not be any wiser.
