CBD Edibles: why to avoid themLintonCBD
Ever since CBD has been available and growing, various CBD products have been available. Amongst those available are oils, balms, creams, tinctures and edibles. Most CBD product forms are perfectly viable as a route of administration, however edibles have some noticeable caveats, why is why we recommend you don’t both with them, and instead use an oil or something else.
Why should I avoid edibles?
The straightforward answer is that they are simply an inefficient way of taking CBD. Edibles. Eating CBD-containing foods means it must pass through the digestive system, slowing down the onset of effects. It can take 2 to 3 hours to feel effects, and absorption rates are between 20 and 30 percent. This means the majority of the CBD in the product goes to waste.
What should I use instead?
As mentioned before, instead of CBD edibles, you should use a CBD oil, or if you require topical application, a skin cream or balm.
In conclusion, you’re much better off using a dedicated CBD product, such as one of the different types of oil available, than using edibles, as they’re just not a great vessel for CBD.
Staying safe with CBD
It’s a good idea to seek the advice of a medical professional, such as your doctor, if you want to try CBD and you’re on prescription medicines or similar.
