Having gained substantial momentum in the market for a number of years, CBD Edibles are now at the peak of their popularity thanks to the diverse array of products available.
A rather general term, CBD Edibles can be categorized as food products high in Cannabidiol that are swallowed. Once these products travel through the digestive tract, the CBD content is absorbed into the bloodstream via the stomach.
The range of Edible products in today’s market is comprehensive due to the fact that CBD can be blended with almost any edible foodstuff safely.
Ingesting Edibles will ensure that CBD is metabolized by the liver. Essentially, this means that the ingested CBD will be delivered to your bloodstream in high doses. However, because Edibles must pass through your digestive system, liver and stomach before reaching the bloodstream, the onset of its effects are delayed when compared to vaporizing CBD for example.
It is important to note that some Edibles will not be swallowed orally, for example mints, lollipops or candies. These edibles remain in the mouth until dissolved and will deliver CBD to the bloodstream through the capillaries under the tongue rather than through the stomach.
CBD administered this way will reach the bloodstream quickly but its effects will not last as long as CBD absorbed through gastrointestinal ingestion.
