All About: Hemp Edibles

CBD Hemp edibles in a jar

Let’s talk about hemp edibles.

Edibles are anything you take by mouth and swallow, including capsules & chews. Edibles are popular because their effects are long-lasting, they’re discrete & convenient, they contain a pre-measured amount of cannabinoids, and they’re easy to use.

CBD Chews

Chews are very approachable for people nervous about trying hemp products because they usually taste good. Also chews can be bitten in half, which gives flexibility in dialing in the right dose.

For people with taste or ingredients issues, capsules are a great option as they’re swallowed whole and generally contain fewer ingredients than other edibles.

Effects of Hemp Edibles

Effects of hemp edibles are usually felt within 30-60 minutes and last 4-6 hours.

Less is more when it comes to any hemp product that you’re ingesting. Taking as little as possible is the goal, as taking too much may cause unpleasant side effects like lightheadedness, dry mouth, upset stomach, and sleepiness.

Hemp Extract Does Not Get You High

One thing you won’t get with hemp extract is “high” since they contain little to no THC, the compound in marijuana known for its euphoric effects.
