Back in the good old days, if you wanted to enjoy the multitude of benefits that CBD edibles have to offer, your options were limited. Of course, in primitive times, the only ways to really absorb CBD into the body were to smoke cannabis, drink a tea brewed from its leaves, or to eat the raw leaves right off of the plant. Doesn’t that sound appetizing?
Of course, as society evolved, so to with the methods of introducing CBD into your system. As far as ways through which you could ingest CBD is concern, most involved preparing food infused with some form of fat, usually cannabis butter for baking, sauté, and others. The most popular type of CBD edibles for at least the last few decades were pot brownies. However, a simple extraction technique of the cannabis plant might not be enough to segregate CBD from other compounds like THC. If this happens, people who would intake it might experience some ‘high’ feeling.
Today, extraction methods have advanced to the point where we have developed methods to isolate CBD from its psychoactive counterpart, and this has helped to fuel the CBD edibles craze that has been sweeping the nation for the past few years. When it comes to the CBD edibles of today, the options are nearly limitless! Perhaps the most widely carried, and most enjoyed, incarnations of these natural supplements are the gummies. These sweet, chewy treats are both enjoyable to the palette, as well as beneficial to the body and mind.
For others, the drops seem to be a quick, simple, and efficient way to get their daily dose of CBD in edible form. CBD drops usually consist of some type of CBD oil that you can carry around in a small vile and have readily available at all times. That being said, of course you still have the option of adding a few drops of oil to baked goods if you wish to create a more decadent CBD-infused treat. Yet another trendy way to get your CBD is to add some mint flavor on it.
As you can see, CBD edibles are available in all shapes, sizes and flavors. The end goal, however, remain the same for the millions of people who rely on the countless benefits that this natural remedy has to offer. Whether you are seeking a bit of stress relief, alleviation of muscle pain, or just craving a better night’s sleep, CBD edibles are a convenient and tasty way to get your relief.
