Tayco Farms has a variety of different edibles that you can enjoy. Each one comes with its own set of particular health benefits, strengths, and even tastes. But at some point, you have to ask yourself, “Where do I start with edibles?”. Well, this blog has you covered with our tasty guide.
What is an edible?
Edibles are an increasingly popular way to take CBD. They can have CBD or THC in them depending on the law where you live. THC edibles are illegal in the UK but there are lots of companies offering legal CBD-infused alternatives.
An edible can be anything food based from brownies or cookies to gummy sweets. It can also be in liquid form too with a range of CBD drinks, alcohols or juices on the market. CBD coffees, like Tayco Farm’s Infused-CBD coffee, are also available offering an anti-oxidant-rich source of energy.
What are the benefits of edibles?
Edibles offer a tasty alternative to CBD oil.
Some people struggle with the hemp aftertaste of CBD oil. Edibles are a fun and flavourful way to get around these issues. For example, our Tayco Farm’s Galaxy Bar Chocolates are made from a variety of flavors like Milk Chocolate, White Chocolate, and Dark Chocolate made from Godiva Chocolates for the best tasting experience.
Our popular Tayco Farms CBD gummies offer an alternative to vaping for anyone with respiratory issues. Alternatively, they can last longer in the system and afford the body a slower release of cannabinoids than vaping or oils, due to the metabolism and digestive processes.
Edibles are also far easier to take while on the go in comparison to oils or vapes. They can also be eaten discretely in public, at work or in social settings because they often resemble your average sweet. Whereas there are restrictions on where you can vape and some may feel uncomfortable consuming a tincture on the go or at the desk.
Is it legal?
Edibles with CBD (not THC) are legal.
Edibles containing THC are not currently legal in the UK but can be bought and sold in other parts of the world. Many US states now allow THC edibles.
Buying edibles from reputable sources is the best way to make sure that you buy a legal product that has been made in a clean environment. Tayco Farms takes pride in delivering safe CBD products that are made with our 100% solventless CBD oil that is free of harsh chemicals like carbon dioxide, nitrogen dioxide, propane, butane, and ethanol. We have a unique proprietary system that only uses LOW HEAT & PRESSURE to extract CBD. We know you want the healthiest option for your family.
How does it work?
When you consume CBD edibles, the bioavailability of the CBD in that edible can range from about 10 to 30%.
It has to go through a process which is referred to as ‘the first pass metabolism. Some say that this process can reduce the amount of CBD which is absorbed by the body, so this isn’t the fastest way to absorb your CBD. By way of edibles, it can take 30 minutes to 2 hours for the CBD components to get to work.
How long do edibles take to work?
Each person is different based on a number of factors from weight to dosage.
Edibles are not the fastest-acting CBD product out there because of the time it takes to absorb into the system. If you are looking for a fast-acting product then vaping or a Tayco Farms Tincture is your go-to, as these get to work immediately and have the fastest effect.
How much CBD is there in an edible?
This really depends on the type of Edible or how much you add to homemade products. For example, our Tayco Farms Galay bars have 400mg of CBD (50mg per square chocolate), but our line of True Spectrum Chocolate Bars packs 400mg of CBD and 200mg of THC Delta 9 for a stronger punch and effect.
Keeping a record of the amount of CBD that works for you is a great way of working out how much works for you. If a package lists a certain percentage of CBD it could be meaning the whole contents of the pack. In this case, you would need to divide by the number of servings per pack. Luckily, with Tayco Farms Edibles, we list the amount of CBD the whole package has and the amount of CBD per serving.
Take care to read the label and find out how much it contains. It is always a good idea to start with a lower dose while you become accustomed to it. The FSA recommends healthy adults should not exceed more than 70mg of CBD per day.
In closing, remember you can always reach out to Tayco Farms and speak to any of our representatives to discuss potency and dosage.
