CBD Edibles – A Tasty Way to Consume Cannabidiol
In 2018, the US Farm Bill legalized the production of hemp and removed it from the list of controlled substances. Since then vendors have rushed to open stores and supply products to meet the growing demand for cannabidiol (CBD) products. Part of the popularity is that hemp does not contain THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), as marijuana does. This means you reap all the health benefits without the high. While CBD oil has been the most popular, there are other products available that provide the benefits of cannabidiol. For example, CBD edibles are food products infused with cannabidiol. And Carolinabis is at the forefront of providing consumers with quality CBD products.

What is Cannabidiol Anyway?
Chiefly, cannabidiol is one of 110 known cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant family. THC is another well-known cannabinoid which causes psychoactivity. These chemicals bind to receptors found in the nervous system. Although the exact process is unknown, some studies have indicated CBD relieves anxiety, depression, pain, and other health issues.
Moreover, for thousands of years, people used the hemp plant as medicine. However, since hemp and marijuana look alike and belong to the same family, lawmakers outlawed hemp in the 1930s. Yet, hemp and marijuana are different in chemical composition. Marijuana has high percentages of THC and is low in CBD. While hemp rich in CBD and low in THC.
Why Not Just Take CBD Oil?
Commonly, most people consume cannabidiol as CBD oil. However, some consumers dislike the taste – describing it as earthy, grassy, and even bitter. Taking cannabidiol through an edible such as gummies or cookies is a great alternative that masks the flavor. Additionally, you can make your own edibles in your kitchen after purchasing kief or flowers.
Moreover, taking CBD by eating edibles has some other distinctive advantages besides masking the taste. Primarily, eating CBD oils provides longer-lasting relief, as edibles must pass through the digestive system. Therefore, the CBD enters the bloodstream gradually over an extended time, allowing you to experience the effects longer. Also, consumers may experience amplified effects when ingested with other herbs. Evidence suggests CBD interacts well with compounds in other plants like lavender or chamomile to produce amplified benefits.
Finally, edibles allow you to use the entire flower and not just the extracted oil. Notably, there are other important components in the flowers that work together to produce health benefits. Phytocannabinoids, terpenes, fatty acids and vitamins exist in the flowers. Ingested together, they produce the most effective and strongest benefits.
How Should I Store My Edibles?
CBD oils are much like any other food product. Leaving your edibles out in the open exposes them to several destructive elements. First, moisture in the air promotes the growth of mold. Secondly, oxygen in the air enhances the growth of microorganisms. Additionally, oxygen reacts with oils and fats in the edibles turning them rancid. Finally, vitamins, proteins, and fats are all sensitive to light. Exposure leads to a loss of nutrients and as well as spoilage.
Therefore, it’s important to keep your edibles stored in a sealed, cool, dark place. Some people like to store their edibles in the freezer, although this does require defrosting time. For others, the refrigerator provides the perfect short-term storage solution.
