Our cannabis edibles do not contain THC. Enjoy all the health benefits of the cannabis plant safely and with a good feeling
What are cannabis edibles?
When you say cannabis, almost everyone thinks about smoking weed. But the cannabis plant has much more to offer. The plant is rich in all kinds of healthy and medicinal substances that can support and benefit our health, without getting high of the psychoactive effects (THC). This is ideal for those who are not interested in getting high!
There are foods and drinks that contain hemp. These products do not contain THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), but all other valuable substances from the hemp plant. Think of amino acids, cannabinoids, antioxidants, oils such as omega 3, 6 and 9, proteins, vitamins and minerals. It's definitely worth to consider to consume cannabis edibles if you are looking for a healthy diet.
And there is plenty of choice, from delicious candies to crispy cookies.
- Chocolate (white, dark and milk)
- Lollipops (different flavors)
- Cotton candy
- Cookies and brownies
Don't forget cannabis-based drinks as a good alternative:
- Cannabis tea (different flavors)
- Chocolate milk
- CBD tea
- Energy drink
The benefits of cannabis food and drinks
1. Essential amino acids
The hemp plant is rich in all kinds of valuable nutrients, some of which are very important for staying healthy. Hemp seeds contain 9 essential amino acids. The body can make a number of amino acids (these are the building blocks of proteins) itself, but there are 9 that cannot. So you have to get it from your diet. If you eat something with hemp seeds, you will immediately receive all 9 essential amino acids. And it is special that hemp contains these amino acids, because normally you will only find them in animal products. So it is also a good idea to eat cannabis edibles if you are a vegetarian.
2. Easily digestible proteins
The proteins contained in cannabis are easy for the body to absorb. Some protein-rich products, such as nuts and grains, contain phytic acid. This acid makes it difficult for your body to absorb the proteins. Hemp does not contain this acid. Of all edible plants (some three million), the proteins from hemp are the easiest for the human body to digest.
3. Good source of essential fatty acids.
Hemp and hemp oil are rich in essential fatty acids. These fatty acids are also essential (just like the previously mentioned amino acids), because they are indispensable for our health and our body cannot produce them on its own. Do not create yourself. Hemp contains omega-3, 6 and 9 fatty acids and then also in the perfect proportions. These fatty acids are important for the health of the cardiovascular system, to keep blood pressure in balance, and also for the health of the nerves and brain.
4. Contains CBD
The hemp plant contains cannabinoids, one of which is CBD (cannabidiol). Just like THC, CBD has an influence on the endocannabinoid system. This system regulates a large number of processes in your body, such as your sleep-wake rhythm, your appetite, the hormone balance and more. Sometimes this system gets upset. CBD can ensure that you get back into balance. So you can take cannabis edibles with CBD for various complaints, such as headaches, inflammation, anxiety, stress or, for example, PMS.
5. For everyone with a tasty appetite
You know that feeling, you have an unstoppable appetite for something tasty. This can happen especially if you have been smoking cannabis, but you can also get such a strong feeling without smoking. The advantage of a cannabis-based snack is, of course, that it is not only delicious, but also has health benefits. And there is treat for every one of us.
CBD edibles are more than just a candy
Most snacks are not that healthy at all. They contain a lot of sugar and, in fact, it is of no use to your body. If you choose a cannabis edible, it is a completely different story. Cannabis contains many valuable nutrients, so a snack will give you more than just your appetite for sweetness.
In addition, if you use CBD (CBD oil, CBD capsules, or any other form), you can also take a cannabis edible. You can then take something extra or replace your normal dose with a snack or drink with CBD. That way you can alternate and also enjoy such a tasty snack.
