We want to make sure that you’re informed so that you can make an educated decision when choosing the edible that’s right for you! There is so much to learn about the different uses of hemp-derived CBD and there may be many of you with various questions, for example – what does full spectrum mean?
CBD edibles benefits
CBD-hd edibles have a lot of great benefits associated with their use. One of the best benefits is that there is a CBD edible for just about any taste. Of course, one of the most commonly found hemp-derived CBD edibles is a gummy. There are also CBD capsules. While you may not think of a capsule as an edible, it is considered as such by many people because it is swallowed. Other popular edibles include candy bars, honey blends, cookies, juices and pre-bottled cold brew (and hot!) coffees.
Hemp-derived CBD edibles are easy to use. They may also tend to last longer than other forms of CBD consumption. Some edibles are digested quite fast. Others, like a cookie, may take a little bit longer before you begin to feel its effects. However, you may find that switching to edibles means that you actually have to consume less because it lasts longer.
If you have gastrointestinal issues of any kind, you might find that edibles with hemp-derived cbd oil, provides you with long-lasting effects. We’re not just talking about occasional pain relief,although that’s also important, CBD has been reported to have both anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties as well.. Accordingly, it can help your gastrointestinal system feel better and begin to heal since it helps protect your body from damage at the cellular level. Of course, if you suffer from occasional nausea, CBD also has the potential to help combat that too.
Edibles are pretty easy to dose. When you order them, they come with instructions that tell you how many servings you have and how many mg of CBD are in each serving. You can start by taking one serving (or even half a serving). Next time, you’ll know if you need to take more, take less, or if one serving is perfect for your needs.
Hemp-derived CBD edibles for occasional pain
CBD edibles are reported to be effective for occasional pain and involve ingesting a serving of a gummy, cookie, candy bar, juice, or coffee made with hemp-derived CBD. The CBD in our Wellphora gummies is derived from the hemp plant which is one of many types of cannabis species.Being derived from the hemp plant also means that it will have less that 0.3% THC. THC is the primary cannabinoid of marijuana plants, which is also a species of cannabis plant. Everyone has an endocannabinoid system. This system helps us regulate certain functions in our body such as sleep, the immune system, and how we respond to pain. The endocannabinoid system is responsible for overall homeostasis in the body.
Studies have shown that CBD binds to the endocannabinoid system’s receptors and helps with both inflammation and occasional pain. It’s also easier on the stomach than taking over the counter medication such as ibuprofen.
There’s also a study on CBD and chronic pain. In addition to reducing both pain and inflammation, it’s been shown that CBD doesn’t build up in the system. This is important because usually the body stops responding well to medication over time. With traditional medicine, the body buidls up a tolerance and often the dosage has to be increased. This study showed that the patients continued to experience significant relief without increasing their CBD dose.
What are the effects of CBD?
CBD is one of over 100 known cannabinoids. A cannabinoid is a compound found in cannabis. When we say cannabis, we don’t mean marijuana that has THC in it, rather cannabis being a family of plants that uniquely produce cannabinoids The hemp-derived CBD is harvested from the medical or industrial hemp plant. Hemp is in the same cannabis family as a THC producing marijuana plant, but hemp has limited levels of THC , does not produce a high with psychoactive effects, and still binds to the same cannabinoid receptors in the human body.
The main effects of CBD are reported to include:
• Reduction of occasional pain
• Feeling less pain
• Better sleep
• Improved mood
• Less nervousness
• Better digestion
This, of course, is not a full list of the effects reported for CBD. How hemp-derived CBD will affect you depends on your dose and what your body needs to return to homeostasis. CBD receptors are found in various parts of the body. For example, two people may buy the exact same CBD with the exact same amount of hemp-derived CBD in it, but buy it for two totally different reasons.One person may be seeking a more natural alternative to combat nervousness while the other personis looking to reduce occasional pain without pharmaceuticals. It may work great for both parties with 2 drastically different desired effects.
How long do the effects of hemp-derived CBD edibles last?
How long CBD edibles last in your system depends on many factors. The first factor is how much hemp-derived CBD is in the product and how much of the edible was ingested. Another factor is if the edible was taken on a full or empty stomach and what the metabolic rate of person taking it. Faster metabolisms metabolize the CBD faster and it may work more quickly and the effects may not last as long as someone with a slower metabolism. Generally an edible will last substantially longer than smoking or vaping. Remember though, CBD edibles may take a little bit longer to get into your blood stream. Since they tend to last longer, many people find the tradeoff worth it. Depending on the strength of the edible and how much you take, you may find that it lasts eight hours or more.
Can you get high from hemp-derived CBD gummies?
No. Hemp-derived CBD gummies will not get you high. The CBD in our gummies does not have THC (the psychoactive substance found in marijuana that makes a person feel high) and will not make you “high”. CBD gummies are used to give people the benefits of cannabis without the risk of intoxication. Generally, even gummies with a trace amount of THC do not have enough of the substance to alter your state of being the same way as marijuana would.
Does hemp-derived CBD make you happy?
CBD is a substance that has many effects and how your body reacts to the CBD is an individual experience. CBD has been shown in studies to affect serotonin, dopamine, and act as a way to elevate mood.
Serotonin is a chemical and neurotransmitter in the brain. Low serotonin levels have been linked to depression. Many people who are diagnosed with depression are placed on a medication known as an SSRI (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor). With higher doses, CBD activates serotonin receptors in the brain. This can cause an increased feeling of well-being and peace (as well as improve sleep and reduce pain). In August of 2018, Progress in Neuro-Psychopharmacology & Biological Psychiatry reported on a study that showed CBD acts like an anti-depressant in the human brain.
Dopamine is a compound and neurotransmitter in the body that helps us feel pleasure. When we do something, we enjoy it because it causes our body to release dopamine. It’s also believed to be part of the reason why people develop addictions. CBD has been reported to interact with dopamine receptors in the brain. This can cause an increase in pleasurable feelings and may even help addicts during recovery.
How long does it take for CBD edibles to kick in?
How long it takes for CBD edibles to take affect depend on the amount of hemp-derived CBD you’re getting in one serving, how much you’re eating, and how long it takes for the edible to be digested so that the CBD is released into your blood stream. Generally speaking, it takes about an hour for a CBD-hd edible to kick in. However, you may feel the effects as soon as 20 minutes, especially in the softgels. You may find that it works better if you consume the CBD edible on an empty stomach.
Also, if it feels like maybe the CBD edible isn’t as effective for you as other methods, consider a couple of points. First, you can adjust your dosage by eating more (or less) to get the desired result. Second, remember that edibles can last longer than other forms of CBD consumption.
How long do CBD gummies stay in your system?
Ultimately, it depends on your body and how it metabolizes the CBD. There are two answers to this question. First, let’s talk about this from the perception of how long will a serving last you in terms of you feeling the effects. That depends on the amount of CBD in the serving and whether you took more or less than the recommended dose. It could last as long as 10-12 hours.
Second, if you’re concerned about a drug test, the first thing to consider is your state’s (and your employer’s) stance on hemp-derived CBD gummies (or CBD in general). Most states allow a small trace amount of THC (less than 0.3% THC) that is acceptable in gummies and other hemp-derived CBD products. How your employer views it may be a separate matter. So, it’s important to know the position of both. CBD gummies can stay in your body anywhere between a week to one month. It depends, again, on how your body handles CBD. Many drug tests that look at whether you use marijuana do not look for CBD or its metabolites. It looks for THC. If you know that you’re going to have a drug test soon and you use CBD gummies, you may want to talk to your employer and ask what they’re looking for and maybe even discuss with them why you use CBD gummies.
Can CBD help with nervousness?
There are studies that show CBD helps with nervousness. In 2010, a study looked at social anxiety disorder and the use of CBD. The study showed that overall, participants felt a reduction in symptoms. In 2011, a study on social anxiety disorder confirmed the same results: a reduction in anxiety for social interactions. In 2015, one study showed that CBD can help in several anxiety disorders including social anxiety, panic disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, PTSD, and OCD.
What are the side effects of CBD?
The scientific community considers hemp-derived CBD to be well-tolerated and safe overall. Yet, some people do experience side effects, although it is quite rare. According to a scientific survey conducted by researchers, side effects include anxiety, depression, episodes of psychosis, nausea, diarrhea, and changes in appetite. It’s important to note that CBD may also interact with some prescription medications. Make sure that you talk with your healthcare provider or your pharmacist to make sure that using CBD edibles (or CBD of any kind) is safe for you.
Full-spectrum CBD vs. CBD isolate in edibles
Products that use full-spectrum, hemp-derived extracts are considered to be better than those products made with CBD isolate. Here’s why: full-spectrum hemp products contain more comprehensive plant botanicals and cannabinoid profiles such as phyto-cannabidiols, flavonoids and terpenes than an isolated single cannabinoid of CBD. It is now widely accepted that using full-spectrum CBD is much more effective than isolated CBD. We are just now beginning to understand the complex nature of these compounds and how the complete smorgasbord of these plant botanicals works together impacting the effectiveness of the CBD on brain function and directly helping to maintain homeostasis and balance in the body. The effectiveness of isolated CBD is not nearly as good. Isolated CBD contains no other plant botanicals, cannabinoids, terpenes, etc.that would normally be part of the “entourage effect” of full-spectrum CBD products.
