As more and more people turn to CBD, or Cannabidiol, to relieve stress and pain many are choosing to get their CBD not through oils or capsules but rather by consuming edibles.
In particular, CBD-infused candy is rapidly growing in popularity. Everyone loves a sweet treat and now thanks to modern technology that treat can also help a person improve their health.
In this article we are going to take a closer look at CBD candy and how it is helping people relieve pain and stress.
CBD candy is regular treats like hard candy, gummies and other sweet confections that have also been infused with CBD.
For example, Sarah’s Blessing, a CBD provider located in London, offers CBD candy that is made in a Swiss sugar factory. One container of CBD candy from Sarah’s Blessing contains 20 pieces of candy and a total of 1000mg of CBD (that’s 50 mg of CBD per piece). The candy has zesty lemon flavor.
The product has quickly become one of Sarah’s Blessing’s most popular.
There are actually two sets of benefits associated with CBD candy.
First, some people don’t like the taste of CBD oil and so the candy’s flavor can make it easier for these people to consume the CBD they need to feel better.
That leads to the second benefit which is how CBD has been shown to help the body.
CBD is now thought to have a number of health benefits, including:
CBD also has no hallucinogenic effects (those come from THC) – that means tens of millions of people around the world can now gain relief from pain and anxiety without worrying about getting high or experiencing any of the harmful side effects that are often associated with prescription medications.
A number of studies have been conducted on the health benefits of CBD and more are now under way.
In a recent study entitled “Pharmacotherapeutic considerations for use of cannabinoids to relieve pain in patients with malignant diseases” researchers determined that CBD may help reduce chronic pain by impacting endocannabinoid receptor activity, reducing inflammation and interacting with neurotransmitters.
Animal studies, such as “Cannabidiol Is a Potential Therapeutic for the Affective-Motivational Dimension of Incision Pain in Rats,” have shown that CBD reduced pain response to surgical incision and reduced sciatic nerve pain and inflammation.
In a trial that involved 171 people (mostly children) with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (a rare and severe seizure disorder), those receiving CBD experienced a 44 percent reduction in seizure frequency. Those results, along with others, led the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to approve the first CBD drug, which is called Epidiolex.
Also, in a study of healthy men that was reported in October in the Brazilian Journal of Psychiatry, those receiving 300 milligrams of CBD were calmer before a stressful public speaking task. Other studies have also shown anti-anxiety effects from CBD use.
A recent animal study that was published in the publication “Pain” found that CBD could block osteoarthritis pain and nerve damage in rats.
Plus, in a study entitled “An Update on Safety and Side Effects of Cannabidiol: A Review of Clinical Data and Relevant Animal Studies” researchers determined that CBD appears to be safe in both humans and animals.
Instead of taking out a dropper of CBD oil and squirting some in your mouth, you can instead just eat a piece of candy. It is much easier and nobody else will know that you are taking CBD. They’ll think you are just eating a piece of candy (which you are).
This can be a relief to anyone who would rather not tell people that they are taking CBD. Also, CBD in candy is a very effective way of getting the CBD into the body.
The CBD will be quickly absorbed and delivered to your endocannabinoid system. There it will bind with the CB1 and CB2 receptors. This action is thought to be the way that CBD helps manage pain and inflammation, headaches and high blood pressure.
Any adult can use CBD candy as their food supplement or CBD edible of choice. CBD is still considered to be very safe, non-addictive and non-toxic.
In addition, some candies, like Sarah’s Blessing’s CBD candy, contain other helpful ingredients.
For example, Sarah Blessing’s CBD candy has Vitamin B-12 in it as well. Among the health benefits associated with B-12 are:
First and foremost, look for a quality provider of CBD. The popularity of CBD has drawn many “fly by night” operations into the market. These providers care less about quality and more about making a dollar.
As a result, they may cut corners in the manufacturing process or use less than the highest quality ingredients.
To avoid these providers of poor quality CBD, look for companies that have numerous positive reviews and that have been in business for a considerable time.
Be sure to study company websites. Read about their products and the processes they use.
For instance, Sarah’s Blessing’s products contain hemp-derived CBD that is grown organically in Switzerland.
Switzerland is a leading grower of hemp and leading provider of high quality CBD. Sarah’s Blessing also uses a superior CO2 extraction process to ensure the highest, purest concentration of CBD in its products.
Look for things like this to ensure you are working with a reputable company that takes the quality of its products seriously.
Unfortunately, there was study done recently in America that showed that of 84 CBD products only 26 were labeled correctly and 22 of the products had less CBD than they claimed. That’s not all, 36 of the products contained more CBD than they claimed and 18 of them also contained THC.
At Sarah’s Blessing, company officials believe that the world has been given a great gift through the release of CBD. For a century or more, access to this miraculous pain reliever has been restricted due to cannabis being illegal in most areas of the world and the company now takes it role of providing CBD to the masses very seriously.
