4 Types of CBD Candy

Ever since cannabidiol (CBD) emerged as a potential source of health benefits for the mind and body, the meanof administering it has been evolving. Thanks to its versatility and ability to blend in with other ingredients, CBD oil can be infused and incorporated into many different foods. The novelty of consuming CBD in a confectionary treat is appealing for consumers of all ages, particularly those with a sweet tooth and an eye for aesthetic appeal. Driven by creativity and competition, this trending novelty has manifested into an edible art form as products become more diverse and innovative 

CBD oil as a culinary ingredient 

CBD oil is made from raw cannabidiol, more popularly known as CBD, which is one of more than a hundred cannabinoids that are extracted from speciallygrown cannabis and hemp plants. The extraction process varies depending on the manufacturer and the intent. There are three extract types: full-spectrum CBD, broad-spectrum CBD, and CBD isolate. The latter is the most processed form while full-spectrum is the purest of the three, meaning that it contains all naturally occurring cannabinoids in addition to CBDincluding trace amounts of THC.
THC is the chemical compound that produces psychoactive effects in the brain, and what results in the high normally associated with recreational marijuana use. All CBD products contain either no or trace amounts of THC, meaning that CBD does not induce the ‘high’ or other psychoactive effects associated with marijuana. CBD products are legal by the official standards of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as long as the products contain no greater than 0.3% of trace amounts of THC(1) 

The FDA classifies CBD as a food supplement, not as a form of medication or medical interventionAlthough the FDA doesn’t validate any claims that CBD can be used to treat medical conditions, the alleged health benefits of CBD are heralded by many customers, advocates, and researchers. The potential therapeutic effects are thought to be a result of stimulation of the endocannabinoid system, which controls key neurological functions such as pain perception and mood regulation. CBD oil is thought to help to alleviate inflammation and stress, and induce a sense of well-being. (2) 

Now, consumers can not only enjoy the allegedly therapeutic aspects of CBD, but in aesthetically pleasing and tasty edible formsThere are various many product types, but here are four mainstream specialties that have taken the edibles market by storm.  

CBD gummies 

CBD gummies have become the most popular type of CBD candy available online and in stores. These days, formulas used for gummies have become more sophisticated and high-quality than ever, due to aggressive competition and increasing demand. CBD gummy bears come in different sizes and shapes, and in a variety of flavors and strengths to suit any taste or preference. 

CBD chocolate 

For die-hard chocolate lovers, the invention of CBD-infused chocolate has been a godsend. Formulas and recipes vary, but the highest quality products are said to be calming for the mind and enticing for the taste buds. Peanut butter, mint, ginger, hibiscus, turmeric, and sea salt are just a few examples of how sophisticated recipes have become. It just goes to show that there’s no limit to creativity and imagination when it comes to CBD chocolate. (3) 

CBD honey 

While it’s not technically candy, honey is a natural sweetener used in beveragesin confectionary recipes, or enjoyed as a treat in itself. Manufacturers and customers alike have discovered that when it’s infused with CBD, it can be even more enjoyable. Honey is also sometimes used as a primary sweetener in natural and organic candy, due to its high sugar content and delicious flavor. CBD honey is a popular choice for people who enjoy sweets but like their products to be sourced naturally.  

CBD hard candies 

Hard candy has also emerged as an increasingly popular way of getting a daily dose of CBD while savoring it more slowly. CBD hard candies are as versatile as gummies, and are designed differently per brand. They are often sold as novelty lollipops and lozenges. Hard candies are similar to sublingual CBD, in that they slowly dissolve in the mouth instead of being chewed and swallowed. They also come in a wide variety of creative flavors, from pomegranate lemonade to caramel apple pie, and the formulas used are typically vegangluten-free, or both, so they’re adaptable to more restrictive diets. (4) 

 

Conclusion 

As CBD oil continues to generate scientific curiosity, social interest, and financial revenue, the industry’s momentum accelerates. Demand for CBD candy drives competition, which fuels innovation. If you’re a fan of both candy and CBD, or you’re simply interested in sampling the two together, there’s sure to be a type and flavor of CBD candy to satisfy your needs.
