The word “edible” is used to describe anything you can eat. Typically related to marijuana brownies, space cake, or some other form of consumable product that is high in THC, the word “edible” is very popular in the world of cannabis. CBD edibles are different than your average edible cannabis-infused treat. They typically come in forms that contain either no THC, or a 1:1 ratio of THC to CBD, making their effects more mild and apporachable for people who may not be as interested in the psychoactive effects of cannabis. Learn more about what CBD is and why you might consider using it.
Edibles that are high in CBD are more widely used for their therapeutic effects and their assistance with stress and anxiety levels. You can expect pretty much the same effect from CBD edibles that you would from any other CBD-infused product. The effects that CBD edibles have will also depend on other factors like your body weight and fat saturation – it’s different for everyone. That’s why it’s best to start with a small amount so that you know how CBD edibles affect you. Some people have experienced mild nausea, dizziness, fatigue, dry mouth, etc. from CBD edibles. If this happens to you, just take a bit less next time. People also turn to CBD for sleeping problems.
What Are the Effects of CBD Edibles; What Do They Do?
CBD edibles differ from CBD oil or topical products in that they may take a bit longer to notice an effect. When you are using a tincture, it may take anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes to notice it’s effects. With edibles, it may take a bit longer. However, that means they may also provide you with longer lasting relief.

CBD gummies are exactly what they sound like – small, chewy pieces of candy that are infused with CBD. They are typically made with a full spectrum hemp extract with contains not only CBD, but some other cannabinoids, terpenes, and compounds found in the cannabis plant. Some producers of CBD gummies, however, will use isolate powder or another form of concentrated CBD in their gummies which would mean that no additional compounds are found in them.
Both marijuana and hemp cannabis plants have CBD and THC, but hemp cannabis plants contain a very low concentration of THC—0.3 percent or less—which means there is little chance the plant can get you as high as Cheech and Chong. Nearly all CBD found in commercially available food and drink is gleaned from industrial hemp, which is now legally grown on American soil courtesy of the 2018 Farm Bill that removed it as a controlled substance. It’s this same plant that produces hemp foods like hemp seeds and hemp protein powder.
There are a variety of ways to consume CBD but the most common product types are oral tinctures, topical solutions, and edibles. Oral tinctures are taken—you guessed it—orally, while topicals are used on the skin, and edibles are ingested like food. Typically, the word ‘edibles’ has been associated with marijuana. It often conjures up images of pot brownies or space cakes, for instance. But CBD edibles are quite different and include everything from gummy candies to protein powders.
What is CBD?
But for every runner who broadcasts their love of cannabidiol, there is another one in the background who is meh on the whole CBD hoopla because they have experienced no noticeable benefits when using it. There is the cautionary tale of history being full of dietary cure-alls that turned out to be more hype than hero. Remember the blood-type diet?
Additionally, some advocates will say that we should look for “full-spectrum” CBD products since these contain a range of hemp plant chemicals in addition to CBD resulting in a synergistic health benefit. (Again, no useful research on this matter.) These items may contain trace amounts of THC. CBD “isolate” has had all other compounds of the plant removed, so it’s nearly 100 percent CBD and there is no THC. This can be reassuring if you’re an athlete subjected to doping tests or if your workplace requires drug testing. “Broad-spectrum” CBD is the same as full-spectrum CBD but without any THC.
