We have included everything you need to know about the best CBD edibles, what they are, and how best to take them. Let’s also discuss how the health benefits of CBD edibles, and how to identify quality products.
For those who may not know, CBD is short for Cannabidiol which is a compound derived from the Cannabis sativa hemp plant. CBD was federally legalized in 2018 per the Farm Bill, and allows for CBD that is formulated from industrial hemp, and has less than .3% THC content to be available for purchase with our a prescription. There are 3 types of CBD, full-spectrum CBD, Broad-spectrum CBD, and CBD isolate. Broad spectrum and CBD isolates do not contain THC, but full spectrum CBD oil products may contain trace amounts, which should be avoided if you are subject to a drug test for work or school.
CBD edibles may be helpful in providing much needed relief from any number of ailments that can keep the body from functioning, and quite frankly, feeling our best.
The seven most common reasons people are using CBD edibles include the following:
These conditions may seem very generic and this is because CBD is not approved by the federal food and drug administration for the treatment of any disease. Be wary of any CBD brand that makes medical claims such as "CBD cures anxiety disorders, chronic pain or cancer" as those claims are basically just a marketing ploy. Now that we have looked at a few CBD benefits, let’s look at how to choose the best CBD Edibles.
CBD edibles are any products or food that you consume that is formulated with hemp extract or has been infused with CBD. The most commonly used CBD edibles are CBD oil tinctures, CBD capsules, and CBD gummies. However some in the CBD industry have created CBD chocolates, CBD Cake Pops, CBD relax bears, and CBD drinks.
Now that we have identified what CBD edibles are, let's discuss the two main ways to consume CBD edible products, and their pros and cons. The first is sublingually, and applies to CBD tincture oil. This oil is placed under the tongue and absorbed directly into the bloodstream. This is the fastest way to take a CBD edible as the effects are typically felt with in 15 to 30 minutes. The negative is to this method is some people do not like the taste of the oil.The second way is to swallow the CBD and have it go through the digestive process. The effects of CBD typically take a bit longer, from 30 to 90 minutes, however if using a softgel or capsule there will be no taste. Products like CBD gummies are popular because along with getting a dose of CBD, you also get to enjoy a tasty treat. Let's go into more depth on these various methods.
Tinctures are an effective way to orally consume CBD oil. A CBD tincture is made by extracting high quality hemp extract from the hemp plant and mixing it with other carrier oils like olive oil or grape seed oil. You simply take a dropper of CBD oil and release the drops directly into your mouth by placing them under your tongue and holding it there for 1-2 minutes before swallowing. Tinctures are an extremely popular product and arguably the best selling CBD edible in the industry. Many people prefer CBD tinctures because they are fast acting, the effects can be felt quickly. Those in search of anxiety relief often prefer CBD tinctures because this kind of CBD delivery method is so fast acting. Tinctures are much faster acting than a CBD gummy. Tinctures come in full spectrum hemp CBD, Broad Spectrum CBD and isolate products. Many feel that Full or Broad will create the entourage effect which means you are receiving the best of the plant as all the cannabinoids are working in conjunction. On the other hand, with a CBD isolate, you will not experience the same effects
Another extremely popular method to consume CBD edibles are gummies. Gummy bears are delectable CBD treats that target the body as a whole. CBD Gummies are great because they come in different flavors and sizes. Gummies work the same way as other CBD edibles and are also a very easy way to dose CBD as gummies generally come in low dose, 10mg dose of CBD per gummy. Hemp CBD gummies is one of the most searched CBD items on the internet and for good reason. The best CBD gummies will always be lab tested.
CBD oil contained Softgels are taken orally and swallowed whole with a glass of water. Since they are swallowed whole, it takes longer to feel the effects when consuming a CBD softgel, it is also very important to find a CBD softgel with a high absorption rate. Palm Organix™ CBD softgels have nano emulsion technology and are 100% absorbable. If you are looking for CBD products that are easy to take, with no fuss and can be added to your other morning pill or capsule regiment, a CBD capsule may be the way to go.
Although not as common, CBD relax gummies bears, CBD chocolate, CBD cake pops, are all also included in the CBD edible category. These edibles, just like CBD gummies, are infused with CBD and are used to snack on. Examples of CBD edibles include CBD chocolates, CBD nuts, CBD snack bars, and CBD protein bars. These other CBD edibles come in full spectrum CBD, Broad Spectrum CBD and CBD isolate products. In the other CBD edible category, CBD chocolate is becoming more popular as there are many home recipes for chocolate that users of CBD are adding their own oil to to make their own one. Think of a CBD chocolate brownie!
CBD drinks are an extremely popular way to consume CBD products. Drinks come in pre made bottles or cans or in many instances, they come in a powder for and can be mixed into 12 to 16 ounces of water. Again look for the highest quality nano emulsion technology product as they will absorb more efficiently into the body. Palm Organix™ sells a refreshing CBD energy drink which comes in easy to use packets that can be mixed directly with water into your sports drink bottle. Derived from the finest hemp plants available, this is one product you should not miss! Consumers love the effects of this product as it is combined with caffeine.
There are many different options for using CBD out there, and, so many companies or places offering all different CBD products and options. When you look to purchase CBD edibles, you want to make sure you are looking for the key qualities that make for quality CBD products.
One of the first things to look for when sourcing product is to find a brand that sources sustainably farmed hemp from the USA. The USA is known for producing the best quality industrial hemp. You should avoid Hemp that is sourced from Europe or Asia and these strains of hemp tend to be inconsistent in both CBD and THC levels. Also, look for product sourced from the following states, Colorado, Kentucky, Oregon and California. These four states are known for yielding the finest available product in the marketplace. Hemp should be processed using CO2 extraction, to avoid having by products of ethanol.
Since CBD comes from Cannabis, it has an earthy taste. If you struggle with consuming this particular taste, you will want to look for a product with added flavors like gummies, or one with flavored tincture oil. If you don't like the taste, you will not be using it very often. Many premium brands have done a fantastic job of masking the taste of cannabis by introducing other flavors such as mint, orange and lemon into their hemp products.
Look for a final product that has natural ingredients. Many CBD edibles are loaded with artificial sweeteners and artificial colors, or corn syrup to boost up the taste and appearance.
Many forms of edibles will have a specific amount of milligrams of CBD, such as 25mg of CBD per softgel, gummy, or tincture oil. Knowing exactly how many mg of CBD you are taking allows you to adjust your daily routine, and may eliminate side effects of taking too much CBD. CBD infused foods are much harder to gage the CBD content.
You get what you pay for. While you don’t want to be scraping the bottom of your cash barrel to afford a particular brand of CBD, you need to keep in mind that in most cases the the one with the higher the price, in many cases has the higher the quality of the oil and the effects of the product. Palm Organix™ offers CBD oil at an affordable price point. If you choose to sign up for the subscription program, you will save an extra 20% on our already affordable prices.
You need to bear in mind which CBD delivery methods work the fastest. For example, CBD tinctures are faster than taking a pill. If you want faster effects, a tincture product would be your best choice.
As far as usability goes, based on your lifestyle or culture, you want to look for the easiest most convenient options. A capsule, gummy of CBD may likely be more user friendly than CBD infused chocolate. If you are also consuming relax bears two or three times a day, that may not be the most convenient option for you if you have a hectic busy lifestyle.
Edibles CBD products should come with certificates of Quality Assurance as well as third party lab testing reports. These laboratory reports should be easily accessible either on a website or through a QR code. Third party lab tested refers to a product, whether it is gummies or CBD edibles or tinctures that have tested by a "third party" to ensure that what the manufacturer claims is in the product is what is in the product. The lab test will show the amount of CBD in the product. Remember for it to be legal, the THC level must be less than 0.3 THC. These test results will also confirm that the product does not contain harmful chemicals, heavy metals or pesticides.
Look for a vendor that offers a money back guarantee on your purchase. If the vendor is willing to refund your money if you are not completely satisfied with your purchase, it speaks volume about the confidence they have about their product. Palm Organix™ offers a 30 day money back guarantee on every product they sell. So if you are not satisfied with your products, you can send them back for a full refund.
Have you ever gotten to the checkout process and realized that the price is not what you expected? This happens all the time as many brands charge for shipping. In fact, some brands view shipping as a way to make money as they charge more for shipping than they are paying for the shipping. Look for a brand that offers free shipping. In fact at Palm Organix™, we offer free shipping on all orders in the United States. Not only do we offer FREE shipping but we ship fast. We can't control the USPS but we do ship our products out within 24 hours of the order being placed. In fact often times we ship the product the same day the order is received.
While everyone reacts differently to varying amounts of hemp oil consumed, it’s always best, as a general rule, to start out with a low dosage and slowly increase the CBD oil intake to the point where you feel the beneficial effects. High quality CBD will yield results even in small doses so start slow and grow.
Nonetheless, it is still recommended to consult with your physician or healthcare professional before starting a hemp CBD regimen and determining which dosage is right for you.
