Since most edibles are dosed in 5, 10, and 20 milligram segments, eating or drinking edible CBD on a whim won’t offer any benefits, said Rae.
As the adult use market expands in the United States with more states legalizing weed, and the unregulated CBD market grows in tandem, customers have become overwhelmed with cannabis options, which can make picking the best and most reliable product for your needs confusing.
To get benefits, you must take CBD edibles consistently
Humans digest THC and CBD, two of the main cannabinoids or chemical compounds found in cannabis, differently, said Rae. THC is the intoxicating cannabinoid and CBD does not have intoxicating effects that make you feel high.
Only a small and inconclusive body of research exists on the benefits of CBD. Current research suggests the cannabinoid can help with anxiety and seizures, Insider’s Gabby Landsverk previously reported.
You can also use CBD in lotions and tinctures
According to Rae, that’s because the CBD content has time to accumulate in your blood stream despite your liver filtering some of it out.
I’m not big on CBD drinks. But I can appreciate that others are. And in the cannabis world, CBD and THC drinks abound: There’s CBD Living Water, Recess, Vybes, Lagunitas HiFi Hops, Somatik Cold Brew, Kikoko Tea, and more. But Aurora Elixirs is what I was drawn to. It’s marketed as a mixer for when you want to make cocktails. I, however, think it’s perfectly fine on its own. Pop it in the fridge to cool and drink it whenever you need it. No complicated recipe or garnish required.
If you’re the kind of person who eats, drinks, and cooks with honey, then this is the CBD product for you. Put it on ricotta toast with some figs. Make a salad dressing or sauce with it. Use it to sweeten your tea. Dump spoonfuls of it on your breakfast yogurt or oatmeal—then top the whole thing off with berries. Hell, you can even eat it right out of the jar. Anything goes, really. Just make sure you’re minding your dosage.

Trying a THC-CBD edible for the very first time? These goji berries are the way to go.
You see, I experienced my first “episode” at 31. I was standing over the sink one fall morning and sneezed. Hard. Before I knew it, my lower back gave way. Then a tremendous pain engulfed my body. And get this: The episodes recurred whenever they felt like it—peskier than a hungry mosquito. Twice a year if I was lucky, more if I wasn’t. (Once, in Paris, I actually had to purchase a cane. The only consolation to that otherwise crippling experience was that it felt comically chic: I was hobbling in The City of Light, clad in Hermès scarves.)
San Francisco-based Pot d’Huile is beloved by pro-cannabis chefs and home cooks because of its . [+] uncompromising flavor. The company even hosts pop-up dinner collaborations with chefs.
