What Are CBD Edibles? Here’s Everything You Need To Know.

Cannabidiol, or CBD has been growing in popularity for a few years now, and that trend shows no signs of slowing down any time soon. A speeding heartbeat after taking marijuana isn’t generally a cause for concern in healthy people, but it can be risky for people who already have some kind of heart or cardiovascular condition. Some of the products had levels of THC roughly equivalent to a few deep puffs” on a joint, according to Dr. Brian F. Thomas, one of the authors of the study and a senior research scientist at RTI International, a nonprofit research institute.

As the name says, products that are made from CBD Isolate, contain only CBD (cannabidiol), and sometimes they have added terpenes for better effect. Demonstrating to law enforcement that you are using no-THC products may be enough to avoid a CBD DUI. According to some studies (2) , higher doses of CBD can cause a slight drop in blood pressure.

The 2018 U.S. Farm Bill legalized the production and sale of hemp, and now as a result, consumer hemp products, such as oils, vaping cartridges and hemp flowers for smoking can be legally purchased in specialty stores, general retail stores and through websites across the U.S. CBD is often confused for THC which is found in marijuana.

As with all products making contact with the skin, the user should test a small amount prior to normal extensive use. With more clinical research into just how CBD inhibits the P450 enzyme, it’s entirely possible that CBD will be prescribed alongside more conventional drugs as a way to reduce the dose but maintain the medicinal benefit.
