Given the accelerating popularity of CBD products in the United States, many suppliers have been matching the demand with a variety of different products to suit consumers varying interests.
Following the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill by Congress and the president, Hemp products are legal on a federal level under a variety of conditions and stipulations. To edible CBD product manufacturers dismay, many State Governments have been removing these products from stores shelves until respective state legislation specifically allows it. Here are the main types of edible CBD products available today:
Edible CBD-Infused Food
By far the main type of edible CBD product is food, naturally. Customers appreciate taking doses of CBD in this fashion because it is much more enjoyable than swallowing a pill or syrup. The types of food available today are unlimited in variety – confections, beverages – you name it, they probably have it.
The manufacturing of these types of products is fairly easy – perhaps another contributor to their mass popularity. A simple CBD extract is added to the recipe of whatever product is being produced, and the nutritional value will be the same as if the extract was taken straight. Some customer favorites are chocolates, gummies, and baked goods.
A tincture is an extract solution typically derived from a plant solute dissolved in an ethanol solvent. The CBD variety of Tinctures typically have a concentration of 50-80%, and little-to-no traces of THC. Because of its very high concentration, it is recommended that users only consume small amounts at a time. It is typically mixed into a liquid to avoid its naturally bitter flavor, but it can also be taken straight by mouth, depending on the preference.
This method of manufacturing CBD is traditionally made with alcohol and, therefore, includes gluten and non-vegan ingredients. In response to consumer trends and demand, many producers have been making their tinctures with other methods to be of alcohol-free, gluten-free, and vegan composition.
CBD capsules and softgels are mainly composed of a standard CBD oil and suspended in another edible oil. Some consumers prefer to take their dosage in this form because of its simplicity and lack of taste. Though capsules can come in a variety of different concentrations, shapes, and sizes, they generally come in a lower concentration relative to a tincture or food.
