Another interesting concept that you may or may not have heard of is CBD oil edibles. This is a very convenient option that can be incorporated into all sorts of foods, including sauces, cookies, or maybe even used as a salad dressing or added to your favorite dish. It’s one of the most versatile ways to consume CBD as an edible and is a great way to add your CBD oil into your everyday cooking.
Full-spectrum CBD: These edibles, made by brands like CBDfx, consist of the entire hemp extract. Whereas isolate products are made by siphoning the CBD out of the extract, full-spectrum products are packed with other useful compounds, which help to enhance CBD’s benefits, too. These include cannabinoids, which are exclusive to hemp and cannabis, and terpenes, which are found in all plants.
So what happens once you ingest your favorite CBD edibles? As you might know, the human body consists of an endocannabinoid system (ECS), with multiple receptors spread throughout the body and brain. THC activates the CB1 and CB2 receptors, while CBD on the other hand doesn’t directly stimulate either of these receptors. This is also the reason why THC makes you high and CBD doesn’t. The ECS is responsible for regulating many activities in the body such as sleep, appetite, memory, mood, and the immune system.
