Hemp Extract Edibles and More

One of the most common ways people take CBD is ingestion, which means swallowing a form of hemp extract or eating it with food. There are many different ways to ingest hemp extract. There is also a wide range of products that are easy to introduce to your current diet, from hemp capsules to chocolate.


Ingesting hemp extract is one of the simplest ways to add CBD to your health routine, and there are a dozen ways to do it. Hemp extract oil is an incredibly versatile option, whether you want to ingest it alone or add it to food to create your own CBD edibles. Mixing it with other liquids or foods is a great idea if you are sensitive to the taste, and you can add it to smoothies, oatmeal, drinks, sauces, and syrups. There are also treats with CBD already incorporated and hemp extract gel capsules that you can take with your daily vitamins.


Eating, drinking, or swallowing hemp extract is a simple way to incorporate it into your life, but ingestion is a less effective method of delivery. Any medication or health supplements you take are affected by a process called “first-pass metabolism,” where the concentration of whatever you ingested is reduced as it passes through your digestive system. This makes supplements like CBD less effective, because less of the supplement is left to enter your bloodstream. The efficacy of your dosage also depends on what else you’ve eaten that day, which can make it harder to guess how much hemp extract you need to take in order to feel better.
