Surprising Benefits of CBD Edibles

By Kathy T. CooleyPublished 5 years ago 3 min read

In the recent past the popularity of cannabidiol (CBD) has grown in leaps and bounds. In just a short period of time, this cannabis extract has been shown to have a number of health benefits. While more research is needed on the safety of the use of CBD for medical purposes, it is already in use either in oils or edibles. Many of these are available from online dispensaries as well.

Undoubtedly, CBD is one of the hundreds of chemical components of the cannabis sativa plant. It doesn’t have psychoactive effects and is safe when taken as part of edible products. Here are top-5 surprising benefits of CBD edible:

1. Are Non-Psychotropic

Due to the fact that CBD is extracted from the cannabis sativa plant, it is assumed to have the ability to give you a ‘high.’ That’s hardly the case. According to a 2012 study, CBD is largely non-psychotropic. It does not cause a psychotropic ‘high.’ The compound that’s known to cause a ‘high’ is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). It targets receptors in the body and brain to alter your feelings.

Not so for CBD, which creates a mellow mood that helps increase alertness and feelings of positivity. CBD edibles stay in the body for longer and are effective in providing relief against daily stress and pain. If you are afraid of getting high and yet you want the benefits of cannabis sativa, CBD edibles are a must.

2. Long-Lasting Relief

There are several ways you can take CBD including smoking or vaping. While products for smoking and vaping are also available in the market, CBD edibles are preferred for their ability to provide long-lasting relief. Typically, CBD edibles take longer to start working. In fact, it takes between 30 minutes and two hours for you to start getting pain relief. However, its effects last longer than that of vaping or smoking products.

Here is how it works. CBD is infused in snacks such as cookies, brownies, gummy bears, etc. When you eat CBD infused snacks, CBD is absorbed slowly via the alimentary canal. For as long as the food is being digested, there will be some CBD available.

3. Available Online

One of the reasons CBD edibles are great is that you can buy them from online dispensaries, such as Ontario Weed Online, as well. Thus, you can make your order online and wait for it to be shipped to you. This is made easier by the availability of various e-payment solutions for use when making such purchases.

The CBD edibles you will find online are made from cannabis sativa or hemp. The main difference between hemp and marijuana is that the former has a very low content of THC. Hence, hemp does not have the psychotropic effects of marijuana, which has high amounts of THC. Across the world, cannabis sativa with 0.3 percent of THC or less is known as hemp.

4. Easy to Determine Dosage

It is not possible to determine the correct dosage by smoking or vaping CBD. One may either take too little or too much of the active compound. That’s why dispensaries provide several CBD edibles, which are better when determining dosage. When you receive your CBD edibles pack, it will come with pre-dosed servings. Thus, it is easier for you to determine the amount of CBD you consume in one sitting. With time, you will know how much you require to get pain relief. This is not possible when CBD is taken any other way.

5. Can Be Combined with Other Plant Extracts

Apart from cannabis sativa, there are other plants with the ability to treat various conditions. According to existing evidence, plant compounds such as CBD have the ability to react with molecules from other plants for greater effect. A good example is the compound linalool, a lavender extract. Incidentally, cannabis seeds also contain a substantial amount of linalool, which has calming effects. It makes sense to mix some CBD into a lavender dessert or tea. This makes the CBD edibles even more potent when it comes to calming your down.

As you can see, there are several benefits of CBD wholesale edibles. If you want to enjoy all of these benefits, then you should visit your nearest medical marijuana dispensary or an online dispensary as soon as possible. For growers of the cannabis sativa plant, downloading the free grow bible is a must.
