CBD edibles have gradually become household snacks like cereals and candies found in the pantry. With the traction CBD Edibles are gaining, it is only fair that we, at Happy Garden, provide you with all the information on the effects of CBD edibles.
Edibles are basically CBD food products. They come in many different forms, and it seems like each day brings a new kind of CBD edible (and this fact attests to the ability of CBD to blend into anything). Some of the most common forms of edibles that exist are broadly categorized into Baked products, Sweets and Candies, Beverages, and others.
All these CBD edibles contain a tiny amount (0.3%) of THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol) and are majorly made of CBD (cannabidiol), which are cannabinoids found in the Cannabis or Hemp plant. There are mixed CBD edibles containing CBD and other cannabinoids (like THC) and CBD-only Edibles. With significant milestones being made in the legalization of Cannabis, edibles are increasing in popularity.
There are many effects that CBD Edibles have, which make them a bit better than other forms of CBD products entirely. The following are the most common effects of CBD Edibles.
The edible experience vastly differs from that of other everyday CBD products. The “high” from edibles may feel a bit more intense, and it may last longer than the high you get from smoking. This is majorly because edibles take longer to kick in than when compared to vaping or smoking, but many factors influence that. Before understanding the effects of CBD Edibles, the onset time needs to be well discussed.
Edibles would usually take about thirty (30) minutes to an hour to kick in, i.e., to show any effects. However, a lot of factors determine this onset time. They can broadly be classified into the ingredients in the CBD edibles, the forms of the CBD Edibles, and the human factors.
Based on the ingredients in the CBD Edible, the THC content is a factor, especially for mixed CBD edibles. A higher concentration of THC would lead to a faster onset time for the edible. On this note, always remember that CBD-only edibles give no psychoactive effects. They do not provide the “high” that THC-infused edibles give.
Hence, it may be harder to identify when CBD products have taken effect. However, for both mixed and CBD-only edibles, the onset time depends on what site in the body the edibles are metabolized (i.e., broken down) and finally absorbed into the bloodstream.
Based on the forms of CBD, there are two significant ways of absorption that affect the onset time of CBD edibles. Sublingual and through the digestive tract.
Sublingual absorption happens with CBD lozenges, sweets, and chewing gums. They are ingested but not necessarily swallowed. Sublingual absorption occurs with the aid of the mucus membranes in the mouth, and that means the effects happen and appear faster.
Digestive tract absorption is for edibles that require chewing. Great examples are gummies, brownies, and cookies. They take a longer onset time because they have to get absorbed from the digestive tract. Then, the active cannabinoids take a route through the liver and into the bloodstream before arriving at the brain, where they elicit their effects.
Based on Human factors, your habits and physical makeup affect the onset time of CBD. These factors include sex or gender, metabolism rate (this varies in different people), Diet, Weight, and of course, Tolerance to Cannabis.
Note: Edibles may take a while to show any effects, but you shouldn’t take more because it may lead to an undesirable outcome. So just wait for a day before taking another dose.
