CBD candy refers to edible products that contain CBD (cannabidiol), a naturally occurring compound found in the cannabis plant. Unlike THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), another well-known compound in cannabis, CBD is non-intoxicating, meaning it doesn’t produce a “high” effect commonly associated with marijuana use.
CBD candy comes in various forms, such as gummies, chocolates, lollipops, and other sweet treats. These candies are infused with CBD extract, which is typically derived from hemp plants. Hemp-derived CBD contains only trace amounts of THC (usually less than 0.3%), making it legal in many places where marijuana is not.
People often consume CBD candy for its potential therapeutic effects. While research is still ongoing, some users claim that CBD may help with various issues such as anxiety, pain, inflammation, and even certain types of epilepsy. However, it’s important to note that the effectiveness of CBD can vary from person to person, and its benefits are not yet fully scientifically established.
