What are CBD Edibles?
CBD Edibles are anything that contains CBD that can be eaten.
When we digest CBD it can take around an hour to travel through the digestive process before it is metabolised by the liver. Even though we loose a small proportion of CBD in the digestive process it is the longest lasting method of consumption, staying in the system for around 8 hours.
Please be aware that if you are currently taking medication we always advise you to sepak to your doctor before consuming CBD. CBD can be taken in conjunction with medication just not at the same time.
We suggest leaving an hour gap so as an example meds at 9am CBD either 8am or 10am. This is because if CBD was in the liver at the same time as your meds it could inhibit the hepatic driug metabolism. This basically means that CBD would try and flush your medication out of the system. Obviously medication is important so as long as you leave an hour gap the CBD wont be able to interfere with it.
When we make CBD edibles most suppliers will use a CBD Oil that is added to the edibles mixture. Therefore you can get different types of CBD Edibles depending on the type of CBD Oil they have used.
Full Spectrum – Contains CBD plus 0.2% THC and the a full array of phytocannabinoids and terpenes from the hemp plant.
Broad Spectrum – Contains CBD, Phytocannabinoids, Terpenes but has had all traces of THC removed.
Narrow Spectrum- CBD and a few of the phytocannabinoids. These are not very effective which is why I dont sell them.
Isolate – This is just CBD isolated on its own. Again I don’t sell these as they are not as effective and furthermore they are currently at the time of writing illegal in the UK.

Strengths & Dosage
When we first start using CBD it is always best to start on a small amount and increase gradually if necessary. Therefore we suggest as an adult starting on 10mg a day and for children 5mg a day.
After several days if you feel it necessary you can then double the amount to 20mg a day for adults or 10mg a day for children. Its only you that will know how much you need by listening to your body and adjusting accordingly.
Secondly you need to see how many MG there is in each CBD edible. This packet has 50 pieces so each Sour Strip contains 10mg CBD Each.
500mg /50= 10mg CBD Each
This means that for an adult you would just need one 10mg Sour strip a day so the packet would last 50 days.
For a child you could cut them in half and give the child one half a day which would just be 5mg. This means the packet would last for 100 days.
If you did decide to increase the strength then you may want to consider a higher strength CBD Gummy. This 750mg Packet contains 25 x 30mg CBD Gummy Rings.
You may want to consider a mega pack that has a range of different strengths in one packet. This is ideal for the whole family to enjoy. This whopping 3000mg mega mix has a variety of strengths of 10mg, 20mg, 25mg and also 30mg each.
