Maybe a few years ago it would have been easy to dismiss CBD-infused meals as a passing fad. But the CBD edibles market has exploded, going from strength to strength with each passing year. With meal-prep having become a mainstay for many people every week it was only a matter of time before things got even healthier.
That’s why CBD-infused meals, are quite possibly the future.
It kinda seems like you can get any food item infused with CBD at the moment. Companies are exploring more ways to keep their food products exciting and their customers similarly pumped. Have a look online and you can find CBD gummies, CBD spreads, CBD powders, even alcohol infused with CBD. The demand is exploding in the marketplace and that’s what we’ve got here.
CBD edibles are gaining popularity, in part, due to the fact there are currently so many regulations on THC. Both THC and CBD are one of the hundred plus compounds present in the cannabis plant. They differ slightly in one important aspect; CBD, unlike THC, is non-psychoactive. That means that it can’t “get you high” or create any other effects in the brain.

As with all great food, the ingredients used in CBD-infused meals can greatly impact the taste of a dish. What has been found is that products which are coconut-oil based are perfect for garnishing food but don’t hold up so well when heat comes into play. Direct heating can degrade delicate compounds like coconut-oil and leave you with a nasty taste.
Coupled with that, there ends up being less for the body to absorb and use to nourish itself. A wonderful advantage of CBD infused foods is their long shelf life. If it isn’t heated or cooked, you’re going to have that food for a long time to come.
Beverages or drops are also another way of getting your CBD edibles fix without much preparation. Added to that it’s also a great way of keeping an eye on how much you’ve consumed.
It may only be in its infancy at this point, but the future looks bright for CBD edibles and CBD-infused meals. What next? CBD-drive through?
