CBD Infused Foods May Help With Anxiety and Pain

CBD Infused Food

Many people might not yet know that CBD or Cannabidiol is excellent for reducing physical and mental pain. It works as well for human beings as it does for the pets. CBD, as it has been scientifically proven, helps in reducing muscle and joint pain, anxiety, stress, insomnia and so on. Even though the merits of CBD were proven long time ago, common people were quite skeptical about using it because they thought CBD is equivalent to Marijuana or Hash. Although CBD does belong to Cannabis plants from which Marijuana or Hash comes from, CBD does not have in it more than 0.3 percent THC or tetrahydrocannabinoid. It is therefore that CBD does not produce the sensation of intoxication or as it is simply called, a ‘high’.

How does it Work?

CBD edibles, CBD oil or tinctures etc. reduce physical and mental pain. It is not some kind of psychological cure thing. CBD actually affects the endocannabinoid system of human body and thereby affects the nerves. CBD once it enters the body calms the nerves and soothes the sensation of pain. Sometimes overly excited nerves make us anxious or will not let us sleep, CBD helps in curing these things for the long run.

How to intake CBD?

CBD can be taken both in the liquid and edible forms. Some people prefer to take CBD through vapour. Most people, however, prefer to take CBD edibles, i.e. through food because the taste of it in the liquid form does not appeal to them. Chocolate edibles are most famous amongst the CBD edibles. A lot of people make chocolate brownies or candies and put CBD oil or tincture in it. Chocolate edibles are tasty in themselves, moreover, chocolate is used as a kind of aphrodisiac. Therefore CBD edibles in chocolate form definitely work in offering mental relief.

What Should you Keep in Mind?

However, in case of chocolate edibles, one must be careful about the amount of CBD intake per day. Just because you like the taste, do not start popping the edibles into your mouth through the day, it may do more harm than good. Also, it is a well known fact that CBD edibles work slowly in producing desired effects in comparison to CBD oil. If you know about the human digestion system, you might understand that it takes about thirty to forty minutes for our stomach to digest a small amount of food. Chocolate itself has lots of calories, therefore, it takes quite some time to digest. Once the food is digested and the CBD enters the bloodstream, only then, it can work in favour of your system.

Both CBD oil and CBD edibles have their merits and demerits. Therefore, it completely rests on you which you would prefer. If the taste of the CBD oil is unbearable for you, you should resort to the chocolate edibles. For children and pets also, the CBD edibles should be more accessible than the oil.
