At Wellness Tree Farms, we listen to customer feedback. Over the past year, we had several current and potential new customers ask for CBD edibles. So in June, we added our CBD Natural Gummies and CBD Sleep Gummies to our growing list products.
So, what are the benefits of CBD edibles?
CBD edibles often have a more desirable taste than CBD oil. Even with the all-natural extracts infused into our CBD oil, the oil has a nutty, natural, and plant-like flavor. For most people, the taste is manageable, but for some, they would prefer less of this natural taste. With CBD edibles, the natural flavor is masked a bit more effectively for a more palatable experience.
It is also potentially easier to consume a more accurate dose with CBD edibles. Each CBD edible contains a predetermined amount of CBD. Wellness Tree Farms CBD edibles contain 25mg CBD per gummy. Our 750mg oil (30ml total) contains 25mg CBD per 1ml (or one dropper full). Each time you want to take a dose of 25mg or 50mg of CBD, with the gummy, you can quickly and more discreetly consume your desired dose of 1-2 gummies instead of having to measure 1-2 droppers of oil.
Now, some would say the difference in time to take each of these is negligible, but when you’re in a hurry or running behind for the day, time matters. Also, as previously mentioned, if you are looking to be more discreet when taking your CBD, it's a lot easier to eat a gummy or two than it is to take your bottle out and measure your desired dose.
CBD edibles can also provide longer relief (4-7 hours) than CBD oil. With CBD oil, the relief time is generally 2-4 hours because the oil is absorbed into the bloodstream more rapidly after consuming. It then gets metabolized out of the body quicker. Relief from a CBD edible is not as fast acting, however, since the edible must go through the process of digestion and be broken down by the body to be absorbed. This process takes time and you may not feel the effects of the edible for 1-2 hours, but the effects will last longer due to this slower absorption process.
Edibles and oil can both offer the same benefits in slightly different ways. Like our CBD oil, our edibles can be used for inflammation, anxiety, insomnia, pain relief, and to provide an overall feeling of wellness. As always, listen to your body and do what is best for you. Everyone is different. It’s also best to do your own research and consult with your physician about CBD use if you are currently taking other prescription medications.
