CBD edibles are CBD foods. These are foods that contain CBD extracts or CBD oil.
Forms of CBD edibles
CBD edibles are available in various forms, such as: hemp seed oil with CBD, gummies, candies, chewing gum, granola bars and chocolate bars.
The effect of CBD edibles
CBD stands for cannabidiol. This is a cannabinoid. A cannabinoid is a substance from the hemp plant that affects the endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system in turn affects other body systems such as the immune and nervous systems. The effect of CBD edibles is based on this principle.
Besides CBD, there are other cannabinoids of which THC is best known. However, unlike THC, most cannabinoids are absolutely not mind-altering. This also applies to CBD. It is therefore impossible to get high from CBD edibles.
CBD edibles are just one category of CBD products. Other categories of CBD products include CBD oil Full Spectrum, CBD capsules and CBD crystals. So why should you choose CBD edibles? There are a number of reasons for this:
- taste better
- effects last longer
- correct dosage is easier
- handy for on the go
Below we explain each advantage in more detail.
Many people do not like the taste of CBD oil, because CBD oil tastes quite bitter. Some even think CBD oil tastes like earth and / or grass.
CBD edibles mask this unpleasant taste of CBD oil. This will soothe your taste buds with foods you love, while still getting the health and wellness benefits of CBD.
Effects last longer
Other CBD products such as CBD oil, CBD capsules and CBD crystals are quickly absorbed by the body. That is an advantage, but the disadvantage is that the effect will wear off after a few hours.
It works differently with CBD edibles. As mentioned, CBD edibles are a combination of food and CBD extracts. When you eat a CBD edible, it takes a while for the stomach to fully digest the CBD-rich food. This allows the CBD to enter the bloodstream more gradually and consistently.
Do not eat more CBD edibles than necessary, because you will not immediately notice an effect after intake. Be patient. The effect will really come. It just takes a little longer, as the stomach has to digest enough of the CBD-rich food first. In general, it takes anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours for you to start noticing the effects of CBD.
Correct dosage is easy
CBD edibles are usually available in a precise and predetermined dosage. This is indicated on the packaging. This way you know exactly how much CBD you are ingesting when you eat a portion.

Handy for on the road
For shelf life you store CBD oil in a cool place, but because cold CBD oil is difficult to drip, you must first let the CBD oil become a bit warmer before you start dripping. For that reason alone, CBD oil is not ideal for on the go.
In addition, the dripping itself is also difficult in a shaking bus or car. And if you are the driver yourself, then you will not be able to drip at all while driving.
How much easier is it then to open and consume a CBD muesli bar. CBD chocolate bars and CBD chewing gum have the same advantage.
We cannot say that about hemp seed oil with CBD, but that CBD edible has another advantage.
Hemp seed oil for kitchen princesses and princes
Hemp seed oil is the ideal ingredient for home cooks who want to offer their guests something special. It is something different than that eternal olive oil.
Hemp seed oil is available in two varieties: with and without added CBD. Only hemp seed oil with CBD is considered a CBD edible.
If you want to use hemp seed oil with CBD, it is useful that you let your guests know in advance. Not that the CBD can do any harm, but of course you want to avoid unnecessary misunderstandings.
Imagine that you suddenly start dripping CBD oil on the train. You can imagine the surprised faces of fellow passengers. At best, they are prying eyes. However, you also run the risk of disapproving looks from ignorant people who are not aware of the many benefits of CBD.
However, if you are going to eat a chocolate bar or a muesli bar on the train, no one will think of it.
