CBD EDIBLES FAQ
Do CBD edibles have THC?
CBD edibles may have trace amounts of THC (less than 0.3% according to legal limit) if these are made from a broad spectrum hemp oil. Many edibles, however, are made from a CBD isolate which would have zero THC and zero terpene content.
Will CBD edibles get me high?
There is not enough THC present in a broad spectrum CBD edible to result in intoxication. It should be noted, however, that CBD is psychoactive, and some patients ‘feel’ the effects of CBD. This should not be confused with ‘getting high.’
Will CBD edibles show up on a drug test?
Edibles made from CBD isolate will not show up on a drug test, as these contain no THC. This is because drug tests are looking for THC-metabolites as these relate to cannabis consumption. Studies show there is a small chance that a broad spectrum CBD edible would result in a positive test if the patient consumed enough.
How many CBD gummies should I take? - Needs more of an answer quicker.
It’s best to follow the recommendations on the packaging or that provided by your cannabis doctor. Since gummies are a small CBD edible, many would think you should take a handful or more. You do not need to take more than what is recommended as the potential effects are in the potency not the size of the edible.
Does CBD edibles help with anxiety?
There are many interesting pre-clinical trials going on right now to build toward answering this question. However, these are on rodent models. There are not conclusive human clinical trials to indicate that CBD edibles will treat anxiety. Anecdotal reports indicate many patients consume CBD edibles to reduce the feelings associated with daily stress, and that these help them feel calm, and increase focus.
How long do edibles last?
Edibles have to pass through the digestive system before effects may be felt. It can take one to two hours for this process to start, and you can expect these to last six to eight hours.
Are CBD edibles legal, and am I able to fly with CBD edibles?
CBD products that contain less than 0.3% THC are legal in the USA, except for the following states: Idaho, Nebraska, and South Dakota. According to the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) there are no travel restrictions on hemp-derived CBD products that have been approved by the FDA.
Are CBD edibles addictive?
At this time, there is no evidence suggesting that CBD is addictive. Studies indicate that approximately 9% of cannabis consumers may develop a dependency that meets criteria for addiction. The same cannot be said for hemp-derived products.
What are the side effects of CBD edibles?
CBD has a good safety profile and very few reported side effects. Some consumers, however, report the following: nausea, headache, dry mouth, fatigue, dizziness, and diarrhea. If any of these happen to you, consider that you took too much and lower the dose.
What is the difference between full spectrum and broad spectrum CBD edibles?
Full spectrum CBD is extracted from the cannabis plant and has the full complement of CBD, THC, minor cannabinoids, and terpenes. On the other hand, broad spectrum means all of these ingredients except THC. It is believed that broad spectrum CBD products will not show up on a drug test, but studies show there remains a theoretical possibility as there is 0.3%THC.
