Are you confused about CBD edibles and THC edibles?



What Are The Benefits Of THC Edibles And CBD Edibles?


These days almost everyone is getting into edibles, whether you’re just trying to get high for fun or you’re suffering from a medical condition. With so many types of THC and CBD edibles it can be confusing to know what the different edibles are, what they do and how much you should take. The terms “edibles” and “medibles” are used to refer to cannabis products that have been infused with cannabinoids like THC and CBD in order to deliver them through the digestive system. While both can produce high-levels of relief for people suffering from ailments like arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and cancer, there is a key difference between the way that THC edibles can affect your body as opposed to CBD edibles.


Cannabidiol (CBD) is a compound that is derived from cannabis. Unlike the more popular compound, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), it does not cause a high.


Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the psychoactive element in marijuana. CBD does not produce any sort of "high." It has been found to have significant medical benefits for a wide range of conditions.


Both THC and CBD can be extracted from cannabis plants, but there are big differences in how they are used. Marijuana plants contain both of the cannabinoids, but hemp contains only small amounts of these two compounds. The biggest difference between edibles made with THC and CBD is the effect that you will feel. Both types of edibles can give you the munchies, but the effects are noticeably different from one another.


Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the chemical in cannabis that produces a euphoric high when ingested. On the other hand, Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid that has been used to treat chronic pain and inflammation, insomnia, spasms and nausea, among other things.


The differences between THC edibles and CBD edibles can be subtle or drastic depending on the amount of each ingredient in each edible. If you were to eat two cookies that contained 10 mg of THC and 5 mg of CBD, there would be little noticeable difference between the two. However, if you had a cupcake that contained 200 mg of THC and only 50 mg of CBD, there would be a much bigger difference between the two


It’s one thing to write about edibles on the internet. It’s another thing entirely to go out and try them yourself. So make sure you get educated, do some research, test your tolerance if you can, and what seems like a good dose one day (even if it’s a little too much) probably won’t be the same next time — or even on the same strain. It’s always best to start off slow and not overcrowd your stomach with too much food when you start out with edibles.


At the end of the day you want to eat what is right for you. If you would rather ramp up your edibles and get more bang for your buck, THC is for you. If you want to mellow out and go easy on yourself, CBD edibles will do the trick in a much gentler way. Still, if you use either one, be sure that you know how much of each cannabinoid your body can take (and when and how) before going overboard or getting too high


Hopefully we’ve been able to offer you some guidance about the differences between edibles with THC and CBD. If there’s one thing that we want you to take away from this article, though, it’s this: keep your safety in mind. Don’t overlook potential health concerns that may arise from taking edibles, and never drive or work under the influence of marijuana. The same can be said for CBD edibles as well, so don’t assume that CBD is a safer alternative because it doesn’t contain THC.
