Most experts believe CBD isolates are less effective than full spectrum CBD oils, since the former have been stripped of the other beneficial compounds found in the cannabis plant, but isolates do offer some upside for people who want to be extra-careful about avoiding even the smallest trace of THC, which gives cannabis its intoxicating qualities.
But according to a 2017 review in Cannabis and Cannabinoids Research, most of those studies use dosages that range from 20 mg up to a whopping 1,5000 mg, so you’d need to eat a lot of tacos to give yourself a shot at feeling anything.
How much CBD is in these tacos?
Essentially, it’s exactly what it sounds like: A taco that has had CBD oil added to one or more of its main ingredients. In most cases, this simply involves taking a dropper full of the oil and squeezing it onto the finished product (it’s also possible to infuse it earlier in the preparation process, but since cooking with CBD oil requires using low heat and a number of other specialized techniques, many people prefer to just add it at the end). In the case of Catch the Wave, the extra CBD-infused kick comes from their popular blue corn tortillas.
Up to this point, Catch the Wave hasn’t had any legal issues with selling their CBD tacos in San Antonio. Similar efforts in states like Iowa, though, could lead to an unwelcome visit from the health inspector (or the police).
Will CBD tacos actually do anything? Or are they a total scam?
Mixing the two together, then, was bound to happen sooner or later, especially considering the rise of CBD food trucks in many cities around the country.
