Considering the number of benefits CBD has to offer, it’s no surprise that almost every person out there wants to give it a try. Thus, edibles are perhaps the best mode of CBD delivery for people who do not like to smoke, vape and use tinctures.
In this post, we’ll take a look at a few benefits that CBD edibles come loaded with:
1) Lower risk of lung irritation
Although vapor pens are highly popular these days, we aren’t yet certain about the long-term effects of inhaling hot oil.
Furthermore, most of the vape pens come with thinning agents such as polyethylene glycol (PEG) and propylene glycol (PG), which are infamous for emitting carcinogens when heated over 224 degrees Celsius.
Hence, edibles offer are a lung-friendly variant of CBD.
2) CBD Edibles provide better relief than inhaling smoke or vapor
Though CBD consumed through edibles takes some time — say 40 minutes to two hours — to mix in the bloodstream, its effects last way longer than other common modes of delivery.
Interestingly, the effects of CBD via edibles can last 2-4 hours longer than its inhaled counterpart.
3) CBD Edibles come with fixed dosing
The main issue with smoking and vaping is that you do not get to know the quantity of CBD you are consuming with each puff.
Edibles address this issue very well as they come in pre-dosed servings, allowing you to calculate the exact amount of CBD to be consumed.
4) Making CBD edibles is a cakewalk
We understand that you may not be a pro at making your own cannabutter or infused cooking oils; however, you can still easily add different CBD extractions — such as CBD crystals that are easily available online — to cooked/baked goods.
Many people make homemade CBD edibles just to get that ‘customization’ that doesn’t come with readymade products.
5) Their discreet nature is an added advantage
Even carrying pocket vaporizers can sometimes become difficult and impractical. Thus, those needing CBD for pain relief in situations where taking a vape-break is not possible can always swallow a gummy or two and easily go about their business.
