5 Reasons Why You Should Be Eating More CBD Edibles

5 Reasons Why You Should Be Eating More CBD Edibles

CBD edibles — it doesn’t get much easier than those, now does it? Whether you’re walking down the streets of Washington, DC, or whatever city you live in, and you need a snack or you’re simply getting in your daily dose of CBD for the day, CBD edibles are definitely the next big thing when it comes to CBD products. This is the case for a variety of reasons and in this latest blog post, we will explore the world of CBD edibles and tell you why you should be eating more of them. In fact, we’ll give you FIVE reasons as to why CBD edibles are awesome.

Benefits of CBD Edibles

While CBD edibles are usually pretty tasty and often times the most convenient way to consume CBD, CBD edibles come with plenty of other benefits and advantages over other consumption methods.

CBD Edibles are Tasty, Convenient, and Discreet

Just to reiterate what we stated above, CBD edibles provide a tasty and convenient way to medicate. Relatively speaking, CBD edibles generally taste better than CBD oils and vapes. I mean, we do love the natural taste of hemp, but if we could choose a yummy gummy, seltzer, or tea over plain hemp flavor, we’re going with those yummy gummies. Plus, you can’t vape or smoke in most places, so why not opt for a discreet alternative? CBD edibles pretty rock for that reason alone. 

CBD Edibles Provide Long-Lasting Relief

If it’s discomfort from a temporary or chronic condition, CBD edibles can provide the long-lasting relief that you’re looking for. Due to the fact that CBD edibles have to go through your digestive system, the cannabinoid breakdown is much slower than traditional methods of consumption, which relates to the bioavailability, or simply the degree and the rate at which a substance is absorbed into a living system. This is especially true in comparison to smoking or vaping where effects and relief can be felt almost immediately. That being said, because the cannabinoids take a longer time to break down, they are released into your system gradually rather than all at once. That gradual release might not be the best for someone having an anxious moment, but for someone looking for long-lasting relief, CBD edibles are your best option. 

CBD Edibles Can Provide an Enhanced Experience

Along with the cannabis plant, there are plenty of other therapeutic plants out there. There is growing evidence that cannabis works best with other compounds so when you combine ingredients, especially those with a high-terpene profile, you’re maximizing the health benefits of CBD.

CBD Edibles Will Not Get You High

While CBD edibles might have some psycho-stimulating properties, but they most certainly aren’t going to get you high like traditional THC edibles. For someone who is looking for help without the high, CBD edibles are a great option. If you’re interested in learning more about WHY CBD doesn’t get you high, check out our CBD vs. THC blog post.

CBD Edibles Will Not Irritate the Throat or Lungs

Unless you have an allergy or forget to take the wrapper off then it might hurt going down, but seriously, this a BIG advantage over methods such as smoking and vaping. Again, if you’re interested in learning more about vaping CBD, please refer to one of our newer blog posts

Not All CBD Edibles Are "Healthy"

Remember a few months ago when Carl’s Jr. launched that CBD burger at one of their restaurants in Denver, Colorado for the day? While it was definitely a big topic in headlines, there was definitely some mixed opinions in regards to the whole situation. One of the biggest topics and opposition of the fast-food chain creating a CBD burger was the fact that they were somewhat exploiting CBD to hop on the ‘Green Rush’ train. Think about it, yes, you’re getting some CBD, but it’s not much, and it’s being masked by all the preservatives, fats, and calories in the burger. That being said, just because something has CBD in it doesn’t mean that it’s “good” and/or “healthy” for you. If a product is ever in question,
