Edibles are an extremely popular method of taking CBD. Because they’re so simple to take and so tasty, they’re very easy to work into your daily routine. They come in a wide variety of options, including gummies, chews, infused water and more – you can even make them yourself! But, as with any supplement, it’s important that you take your CBD properly. Here are some edible safe practices to follow if you decide to introduce CBD edibles into your routine.
Check the Quality
It’s extremely important that your CBD products are high quality – that goes for edibles, too! Make sure to research the company where you’re going to buy your CBD. You should purchase from a reputable source with high-quality ingredients like you would with any supplement!
If you’re planning to make your own CBD edibles, it’s still important to get a high-quality oil with a flavor that mixes well with what you plan to cook.
Don’t Eat Too Much!
CBD edibles can be super tasty – but don’t eat more than the recommended amount! Although you won’t feel the psychoactive effects that THC edibles provide, you may experience side effects if you take more CBD than you should. Some of these side effects include:
- Dry mouth
- Light-headedness or dizziness
- Lowered blood pressure
While it may be tempting to pop a handful of CBD gummies in your mouth at once, eating more than recommended won’t increase the effects of CBD and may, in fact, lead to the above side effects.
Choose the Right Edible
Like all supplements, the most effective way to take CBD is whatever way makes you want to actually take it! So, you want to make sure you like the edible you’ve chosen.
Try out different kinds of gummies, infused waters, chews, and other edibles to see which one fits best into your routine and makes you feel best. If you decide to make your own edibles, experiment with different ways to cook with CBD. You may find that sweets aren’t your thing, but a savory CBD salad dressing is right up your alley – you never know until you try!
Remember: digesting CBD often means its effects take a little longer to kick in – and they often last longer – so you may want to start out with a lower serving than you might think.
No matter what type of edible you decide to try, be sure you’re getting high-quality products and follow these edible safe practices – and enjoy the wide variety of tasty CBD edibles on the market!
