What are CBD Edibles?
Our CBD edibles are sweets, soft gels, gummies and mints infused with CBD. Many people prefer taking CBD edibles over oils for their taste and convenient method of consumption. Edibles can be taken daily as a way to introduce CBD into the body to interact with the endocannabinoid system, a network of receptors in the body that govern and influence passive functions such as sleep cycles and mood regulation. Here is an easy beginner’s guide on the ins and outs of UK CBD Edibles.
CBD Oils Vs CBD Edibles
CBD oils are supplied in many different strengths and flavours. One of the chief benefits of using CBD oils is the ability to measure out a specific dosage for consumption. Voyager’s CBD oils are mixed with MCT coconut oil for a neutral, natural flavour and a fat content for the CBD to bind to for increased efficacy. Our other flavours of CBD oil include peppermint and blood orange and they also come in three seperate strengths of 500mg, 1500mg, and 3000mg CBD oil.
The advantage to CBD oils is that they are absorbed faster than CBD soft gels and CBD gummies because they are taken sublingually (under the tongue). Gummies and soft gels often take longer as they are digested in the stomach. However, this may also be preferred by some for a slower release of CBD throughout the day or night.
CBD edibles are different from oils in their strength amounts, flavours, and method of use. CBD gummies and soft gels can be used daily as a CBD supplement. Voyager’s CBD gummies come in a pack of 30 for a month’s supply with four different flavours inside consisting of watermelon, apple ,lemon and mango. Each gummy is infused with 25mg CBD isolate for a simple and convenient daily dose and are a great method for taking CBD for those who enjoy sweets.
CBD soft gels have very little flavour and are meant to be swallowed with water like a standard supplement. This is great for people on the go who don’t want to taste their CBD in oil or gummy form. Voyager CBD soft gels also come in a pack of 30 for a month’s supply. Each soft gel contains precisely 30mg of CBD for an easy daily dose.
The advantage is taking a CBD edible as opposed to a CBD oil is firstly the predetermined dosage. CBD gummies and soft gels already have the measured dosage within them, whilst CBD oils require manual measurement with a pipette in order to take a consistent dose. The convenient practice of taking CBD gummies and soft gels can be much easier than taking an oil, especially when leading a busy life.
Benefits of taking CBD Edibles
The benefits of taking CBD edibles are the same benefits as taking CBD in any other form. CBD is a natural anti-inflammatory and antioxidant and many people report benefits including improved sleep, decreased anxiety, and pain relief. Others take CBD for general support to their health and wellness throughout their lives.
How to Take CBD Edibles
There is a specific dosage for both the soft gels and gummies. However, the maximum UK recommended dosage is 70mg of CBD a day. The CBD gummies contain 25mg in each gummy allowing for up to two and a half gummies to be taken per day. The CBD soft gels are our strongest CBD edibles containing 30mg in each soft gel. This allows a dosage of up to two soft gels to be taken per day. This allows quite a bit of wiggle room to try out lower dosages first and work your way up to an ideal dosage. Everyone is different depending on their metabolism so we suggest aiming low and working your way up slowly while regularly checkin in with yourself.
It is also recommended to take your daily CBD edibles over a long period of time. This allows the CBD to build up in the body’s endocannabinoid system. Taking CBD regularly for a longer period of time will allow it to work to its full potential and therefore allow you to get the best results.
Are CBD Edibles legal in the UK?
CBD edibles are legal in the UK under specific laws and regulations. The main regulation being that the finished product must not contain any more than 0.1% THC. THC is the psychoactive part of the cannabis plant that can make people feel high. CBD products containing no more than 1mg of THC will not give this effect however and will not impede cognitive function while driving or undertaking daily tasks and activities.
Reputable CBD companies will have appropriate lab testing done on their CBD Products to ensure that they are compliant with UK regulations. Voyager has all relevant Certificates of Analysis for our CBD gummies, mints and soft gels in the descriptions of our products on our website.
