Want an alternative to inhaled CBD or cannabis that is healthy? Wondering how CBD edibles can be a benefit to you?
Let us explain how CBD edibles can benefit you.
1. CBD edibles provide longer lasting relief than inhaled cannabis or CBD oils
CBD edibles have many different benefits over CBD vapor or smoking cannabis.
CBD edibles are not as quick to work, but the results last much longer than when it is inhaled.
The active compound in CBD edibles are combined with other food additives and this means that the CBD is released in a slow manner, over long periods of time as everything is digested.
This results in a longer lasting CBD experience and can in fact last up to four hours.
2. CBD is a non-psychotropic
Whilst CBD is a cannabis compound, many are still surprised to find that it doesn’t cause a psychotropic “high” feeling.
Instead, CBD edibles offer an easy-going mood lift that is accompanied by a sense of positively enforced energy.
Because CBD edibles last much longer than other CBD products, they also provide a prolonged relief from pain, daily stress and anxiety.
3. Less risk of lung irritation
Vaping has become more and more popular over the years, but the long-term implications of inhaling hot oil are still yet to be determined.
Many different vapes also contain added thinning agents like PG (propylene glycol) and (PEG) Polyethylene Glycol.
While it is possible to find vapor pens that do not contain these additives, CBD edibles are an excellent way to avoid inhaling potentially toxic compounds. This saves the lungs from irritation.
4. CBD edibles are easy to make at home
Many prefer to make their own CBD edibles at home. Cannabutter, brownies and cookies are the most popular options. These and many others are easy and simple to make.
When cooking or baking your own CDB edibles, there are many different CBD extracts that can be added as an antioxidant boost.
CBD crystals are made with purified and isolated CBD and are available in many different legal CBD stores and online e-commerce sites.
MCT oil tinctures infused with CBD are also handy to have around.
Both of these products are easy to dose and this gives you much more control over the amount of CBD per serving.
5. CBD balances the psychoactive effects of THC
If you’re worried about getting a little too ‘relaxed’ for comfort.
CBD edibles may in fact help balance out a psychotropic THC.
Edibles tend to take their time to start having an effect, thus consuming a small amount of CBD with your THC intake is a good way to moderate the psychoactive experience.
Research even suggests that CBD can calm the psychoactive effects of THC, toning down what could be an uncomfortable experience for some.
