What are CBD edibles?
CBD, short for Cannabidiol, is one of the 113 active cannabinoids in the cannabis plant. As one of the major components of cannabis, it accounts for up to 40% of the plant's extract with THC accounting for most of the rest.
Unlike THC, CBD has no psychoactive effects, meaning that it will not get you high.
Yep, you read that right. Despite being one of the most prominent portions of the cannabis plant, CBD edibles will have *zero* chance of getting you high. You can eat CBD edibles and go about your day just like you normally would.
So if it doesn't get you high what's the point? Read on and find out.
What are the benefits of CBD?
CBD edibles, such as Tasty Gummies, have been shown to have a beneficial effect for a wide variety of different medical conditions including:
- Epilepsy (helps to reduce amount of seizures)
It's important to note that there is no guarantee that CBD edibles will work for your specific condition. Every individual is different, with some reporting that they've received massive benefits and others finding out that it didn't really do anything for them. But if you're looking for a completely natural way to treat your condition, it's definitely worth a try to see if it helps.
As with anything else health-related, it's important to ask your doctor before you begin using CBD edibles to find out if they're best for your unique needs.
Will CBD edibles make me fail a drug test?
The answer is: highly unlikely.
Drug tests are designed specifically to test for THC, which is the psychoactive component of cannabis.
Since THC is widely regarded as being responsible for getting people high, the SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration) guidelines ensure that a routine urine test has antibodies that are designed to detect THC while ignoring other cannabinoids.
Theoretically, it is possible to receive a false positive if eating a *massive* amount of CBD edibles every day (typically 1000mg-2000mg). If you're familiar with CBD edibles, you'll know that virtually nobody uses this much on a daily basis. In the rare case that the initial urine screening shows a false positive, the confirmatory test (which is much more accurate) would come back negative and you'll be good to go.
So the bottom line is that you really have nothing to worry about when it comes to urine tests if you're eating CBD edibles.
How can I use CBD edibles?
CBD edibles are probably the easiest method of consuming CBD that exists. Simply open the package, choose your desired dose, and eat it. You'll start to notice the effects within about 2 hours. It's very important to wait at least two hours before consuming more. Unlike CBD oil, which tends to affect your body almost instantly, edibles take much longer before you can feel the effect. Start low and work your way up.
