With so many different ways to take CBD on the market, you really have your choice of how you want to reap the benefits of CBD. Edible products are popular because of their convenience, easy-to-measure dosing, and – most of all – taste.
Edible products like CBD gummies and CBD hard candies allow users the simplest CBD experience when it comes to serving size and equipment. You don’t have to carry any kind of device or equipment with you, and each piece is accurately dosed so you know exactly how much CBD you are ingesting every time.
What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a compound found in the hemp plant, also called Cannabis sativa. You’ve probably heard of the cannabis plant as containing tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) the psychoactive substance in marijuana. Unlike THC, CBD has been federally legal since the 2018 Farm Bill was passed.
Our non-GMO, US-grown hemp has been bred to contain only trace amounts of THC to comply with Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and federal regulations. These plants are high in CBD content, with less than 0.3% THC. CBD is not psychoactive and does not have the adverse side effects commonly associated with THC.
Isolate vs. Broad Spectrum vs. Full Spectrum CBD
To get the most benefits for you, you can choose between different forms of CBD found in various CBD products.
CBD Isolate: There is no detectable amount of THC, and all other cannabinoids, flavonoids, and terpenes have been removed for the purest form of CBD.
Broad Spectrum CBD: THC is non-detectable but other phytocannabinoids (including terpenes) are present.
Full Spectrum CBD: This contains all the phytocannabinoids found in the hemp plant with less than 0.3% THC.
Tranquil Earth CBD edibles are crafted with hemp-derived CBD isolate, the purest form of CBD, so you can rest easy knowing that they are THC-free*.
Potential Benefits of CBD
Research suggests that CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system (ECS), which helps manage the overall wellness of the human body. Many who use CBD report a wide variety of benefits, so we recommend you try CBD at a responsible level on a daily basis to determine how it affects your body.
When using CBD, you might experience a sense of calm and focus. Some find it helpful in managing everyday stress and anxiety. Athletes love adding CBD to their workout routines because it can promote healthy exercise recovery and help ease joint and muscle pain, as it has potential anti-inflammatory effects.
Benefits of CBD Edibles
Edibles like CBD gummies are so popular in part due to the fact that all you have to do is pop one in your mouth and go. You don’t need to purchase or carry any equipment if you choose them as your go-to method of taking CBD.
CBD gummies and other kinds of edibles come in a variety of delicious flavors to choose from. Often each container will have a mix of fruit flavors, and our gummies come in regular and sour fruit options.
Some CBD products have an earthy, bitter taste, but edibles offer a different taste experience. Tranquil Earth CBD edibles are delicious, flavorful, and don’t have that earthy hemp flavor. If you are not a fan of the taste of hemp, give CBD edibles a try.
It can be tricky to measure how much CBD you’re taking with certain forms of CBD. Gummies and candies solve this problem! CBD edibles take the guesswork out of dosing. CBD gummies and candies come in low-dose, small bites so you always know how much CBD you’re taking. Beginners and pros alike can easily customize their CBD routine by adjusting dosage up or down with edibles.
Edibles are processed by the digestive system instead of being absorbed by the lungs or the mouth like CBD oil vapeables or CBD oil tinctures. Though the effects may take longer to feel, as the CBD is processed in the digestive system it is released slowly over the course of a few hours. Therefore, the effects will last longer than those of CBD oil tinctures or vapeables.
Bioavailability refers to how much of the CBD you ingest is actually absorbed into the bloodstream and able to interact with your endocannabinoid system.
Different types of CBD products will have different levels of bioavailability, so it is an important factor when considering what kind of CBD product is right for you. A tincture has a high degree of bioavailability because it is quickly absorbed under the tongue.
CBD edibles have lower levels of bioavailability than tinctures since they must first be processed by the digestive system. Some of the CBD will be lost to the process of digestion before it can make it into the bloodstream.
However, for many people the convenience of edible CBD wins out over the slightly lower degree of bioavailability. Some also prefer that edibles take longer to take effect and have a longer period of release into the body.
Once CBD makes it into the bloodstream, it reaches the endocannabinoid system where it sends signals to the CB1 and CB2 receptors located throughout the body. The primary goal of the ECS is to maintain homeostasis, or balance, in the body. CBD works with the endocannabinoid system to provide wellness benefits.
