If you’ve never tried CBD gummies or edibles before, then you may have a few questions about how to get started. We consider ourselves experts in the field, offering a huge variety of UK regulated CBD edibles in the UK, as well as a range of other CBD products for alternative ways of consuming the cannabinoid. To find out more about CBD, what it is, and how it can be beneficial – check out our in-depth guide to CBD. Alternatively, read on to find out why CBD edibles are a great way of getting your daily intake of the cannabinoid.
What are the different types of CBD edibles?
CBD itself comes in a variety of shapes and sizes, and, as the CBD industry has grown, so too have the range of products on offer. This is very much the case when it comes to CBD edibles in the UK, where you can get your hands on everything from CBD chocolate to chewing gum, tea, fizzy drinks, and even CBD dog biscuits for your pet.
For those who have been using CBD for a long time and are looking for a change, or who are perhaps looking for an alternative to more traditional CBD products – edibles are a fantastic place to start! Here are some of the different types of CBD edibles on offer:
CBD gummies were probably amongst the first ever types of CBD edibles to hit the market, and whilst the first versions may have left a lot to be desired, now you can pick up CBD gummies that look and taste incredible! There is a huge variety of CBD gummies on the market now, many of which imitating some of the country’s best-loved sweets. Think everything you know and love about regular sweets, and introduce a healthy dose of CBD, and you’re pretty much there! At Vapemate, our CBD gummies range is vast to incorporate different CBD levels to meet all requirements.
We are a nation of tea lovers, so it only makes sense that CBD tea in the UK has become such a huge hit! Many teas offer their own list of benefits, and you can opt for a herbal or spiced tea that promises a boost of additional ingredients for an even more holistic experience. However, when combined with CBD, you can benefit from a concoction made for health and wellness. Available in a range of flavours and types, our collection of CBD tea is sure to get your taste buds tingling.
In the case of most CBD edibles, there is the need to carefully portion out doses to ensure you are only consuming the appropriate amounts of CBD at any one time. The benefit of CBD lollipops, like those we stock at Vapemate, is that the dosing has already been done and all that is left to do is enjoy the delicious taste! A truly delightful hard candy, CBD lollipops are fun, flavourful, and affordable making them the perfect CBD edible.
Although more of a recent addition to the CBD collection, CBD syrups are a great option for accurately dosing CBD, as well as offering a delicious and effortless way to incorporate the cannabinoid into everyday life. Usually, a sweetened syrup mixture, adding CBD syrup to a regular beverage can enhance the overall taste whilst providing your daily dose of cannabidiol. They can also be consumed alone, although this may not be as pleasant as combining it with your favourite drink.
What about CBD edibles for pets?
As much as you may enjoy experimenting with different CBD edibles, it’s important not to forget that your beloved pet may be able to reap just as many benefits from CBD as you! Yes, that’s right – there is a whole world of CBD edibles for pets out there, and here at Vapemate, we don’t discriminate.
You can get your hands on a range of CBD edibles for your pets here, but always be sure to check the products you’re buying thoroughly first to avoid any confusion!
What are the benefits of CBD edibles?
Although CBD edibles can appear daunting if you’ve never tried them before, the truth is, they work in very much the same way as other CBD products. The main reason why there is so much variation when it comes to how we consume CBD is to ensure it is accessible for all. But, the end results and benefits of CBD are often the same.
In general, CBD edibles are thought to be useful for:
- Pain and discomfort
It’s important to note that we do not recommend the use of CBD edibles, or any other CBD product, as a means of replacement for prescription medication. And, whilst research into the benefits of CBD is extremely promising, there is still much research to be done into just how powerful the cannabinoid is when it comes to our health.
For further information about CBD and its potential benefits, see our guide to CBD.
How long does it take for CBD edibles to have an effect?
If you’re new to CBD or have never tried CBD edibles before, this bit is important. The time in which it takes for CBD edibles to take a noticeable effect will differ from one individual to the next, and the most crucial thing to remember is that taking more CBD in an attempt to speed up the process will not work.
Your size, experience with CBD, and the strength of the CBD edible itself will all play a part in how long it takes for you to feel the effects. As a general rule of thumb, it can take up to 90 minutes for the effects of a CBD edible to hit, so if by this time you feel you could benefit more, it may then be safe to consume a little more.
CBD strengths can range from just 150mg up to 2000mg, so it’s important to read the label of any CBD edible you’re thinking of buying to find one that is an appropriate strength for you.
Safety precautions with CBD gummies and edibles
We understand that for those using CBD edibles as a means of relief, it can be difficult to wait large amounts of time to feel the benefits. However, overindulging in CBD can come with some risks including nausea, stomach-ache, drowsiness, and lethargy. It is, therefore, vital that you proceed with caution when consuming CBD gummies and edibles, especially if you’re new to it.
In some forms, such as CBD oils, it is pretty straight-forward to ensure the correct amount of CBD is consumed. However, this can be less straight-forward in other cases, but edibles are a fantastic way of ensuring you get the right dose of CBD for you, every time. If you’re micro-dosing CBD, which means to take your dose of CBD across numerous smaller doses, then edibles can be an easy way to portion out your allowance effectively.
But remember, if you are new to trying CBD it is always advised that you start off low and work your way up. Remember, you can always add, but you can never remove CBD from our system once it has been ingested.
