Best CBD Edibles
CBD use has grown at an amazing rate over the last few years. As its popularity has increased, it’s logical that the ways in which people want to use CBD have also grown. Oils and topicals were the first introduction to CBD for many, but it wasn’t long before the availability and popularity of CBD edibles caught on.
Tasty, convenient, and easy to consume, edibles are available in all types and strengths. One can choose from CBD gummies, mints, candies, cookies, trail mix, and on and on. With all these choices, how does someone wade through it all to find the best CBD edibles? CBDtop10 is here to help! Read on to find out how we have sorted out some of the best CBD edibles you will find and a list of our top 10.
History of CBD Edibles
CBD Edibles are a relatively new phenomenon in the overall tradition of infusing cannabis into food products. Some historians believe that cannabis food infusions were happening as early as 1500 BCE! If true, those pioneers set off a long, sometimes illegal, practice that has persisted into our modern society. While those early infusions likely focused on infusing marijuana into food, only recently has CBD had its chance to shine in edible form.
As various US states started to legalize medical marijuana, cannabis edibles have graduated from homemade brownie tins with questionable potency to mass-produced, packaged goods with precision potency. CBD, on the other hand, didn’t get the mass production treatment in the USA until the passage of the Farm Bill, which legalized hemp products nationally containing under .3% THC.
In just a few short years since the enactment of the Farm Bill, both the brands producing CBD and the production methods have been elevated in commercial standards. Today, you can find CBD edibles of all types and flavors, jumpstarting an entire industry that we’re very excited to follow.
Why CBD Edibles?
Once CBD is extracted from the hemp plant, there has to be a means to deliver it to users. One easy solution was to mix the CBD in an oil “carrier” and offer CBD oils to consumers. Of course, some people have digestive system issues that prevent them from consuming oils. For others, the grassy hemp taste found in many oils is a total turn-off.
Enter CBD edibles! CBD can be infused into any number of food and drink, including the ever popular CBD gummies. A quick search will reveal a wide variety of strengths, flavors, and food types to bewilder the reader. Take comfort in the fact that CBDtop10 has done your homework for you to bring you this list of the best CBD edibles.
Hunting the Best CBD Edibles
CBD gummies and edibles, as with any product that has an impact on the mind, body, and wallet, are clearly a concept you’ll want to research before buying. Of course, every brand website is going to tell you they’re the best! We’re here to dig deeper than that; what is the company’s mission, process, sources of hemp, extraction methods, testing standards, etc.
Even when you do a lot of reading, you may still find it hard to sort it all out and determine which are the best CBD edibles. Dear reader, we propose to you the CBDtop10 shortcut:
CBDtop10 and CBD Edible Reviews
The CBDtop10.com review team has done the heavy lifting of research for you. Yes, of course we’ve read all of the websites, but beyond that, we have tried dozens of CBD edible products. From there, we evaluate the products through the lens of our review criteria that enables us to find the best of the best. We talk to the manufacturers making CBD edibles. We scour the customer reviews and engage in hemp forums. Put simply, your homework has been done for you. You’re welcome.
Our process starts before we even buy a product, or accept a product from a manufacturer for review. To be considered for a review by the CBDtop10 team, we insist that the CBD products meet these three fundamental criteria:
- Hemp from what we believe is a reliable North American or European source
- Supercritical CO2 extraction (or similar non-toxic method) of CBD
- Independent testing and availability of test results
If and when we believe a brand has met the above criteria – and we have researched enough to know the company is a legitimate, quality-focused brand – we will accept one or more of their products to be considered in our search for the best CBD edibles.
Our Scoring Metrics
Our review process involves team members trying the edible product and recording their impressions on a variety of factors. We score the products based on five criteria:
- Taste –we assess how pleasant or unpleasant the taste is. Some CBD products are flavored, some not. Sweetness of flavored products is not necessarily a high-ranking factor. Some have an exotic taste that is unusual but satisfying. In full spectrum products, there is a grassy taste from the hemp plant. Gels and capsules are swallowed whole and have no taste. Aftertaste also comes into play with CBD gummies.
- Delivery – when considering a CBD edible, we assess various aspects of the product delivery; is the texture pleasing and consistent with a similar non-CBD-infused product? Does it taste good? Is it a product that would be enjoyable without the CBD benefit? Is the recommended dosage indicated? All of these factors contribute to the overall experience.
- Potency – We look at the concentration of CBD per volume of the product. This is easier with edibles than it is with oils, as the CBD content for packaged edibles is the same for each unit and is clearly marked. Most CBD edibles come in serving sizes ranging from 10 to 50 milligrams, although we have seen CBD gummies containing 100 mg of CBD. Beyond that, how does the CBD land relative to its concentration level? Some edibles are intended to have low concentrations for specific purposes, others are intended to pack a high-concentration punch.
- Effect – this is a subjective value that we discuss among ourselves to see how each team member “felt” the CBD. We don’t claim any medical solutions from CBD, but we consider how we feel in body and mind, how we sleep, etc.
- Price– This is easy enough to explain. We look at the price in terms of cents per milligram of CBD. Typically, this value ranges from about five cents to 15 cents per milligram, but we’ve seen higher and lower numbers. CBD gummies are often higher priced than oils, as would be expected. Surprisingly, some high-quality edibles have come in at the low end of this range, so it is possible to find great value.
Beyond our core metrics, we also look at specific practices and intangible values of each company to get a feel for their mission. Yes, the intangibles absolutely can sway our opinions, and are often pointed out in our “Initial Thoughts” section.
