Cannabis Bakehouse is famous for selling its home-baked cannabis treats from their canal-side shop front in Amsterdam.
But now you can try their mouth-watering CBD edible range in the UK as Ice Head Shop becomes one of the only places in the country to stock them.
From CBD-infused brownies (my favourite!) and cookies to candyfloss and honey, Ice Head Shop has stocked up on some of the Bakehouse’s most scrumptious CBD edibles.
What are CBD edibles?
Unlike the space cakes or weed brownies you usually associate with Amsterdam, CBD edibles will not give you the giggles, bloodshot eyes or dry mouth.
They may very well relax you, though. And that’s because they’re made with CBD and not THC. While THC gets you high, CBD is non-intoxicating and can calm the mind and relax the body.
CBD is fat-soluble, meaning it can be easily infused into fat or oil like butter or coconut oil, which can then be used in recipes.
Cannabis Bakehouse is famous for their homebake-style treats and sweets. Think squidgy chocolate brownies, buttery cookies and flavourful lollipops – all made with added CBD.
What are the effects of CBD edibles?
Consuming CBD edibles won’t get you high. However, many people report feeling a relief of tension in their body, a slowing down of their mind, and a general sense of comfort or wellbeing.
CBD has been clinically proven to treat anxiety and reduce inflammation, which is why CBD edibles can have such soothing effects. Many people also use CBD edibles for treating pain, migraines and sleep problems.
Benefits of CBD edibles
- Long-lasting effects
While it takes a while for CBD edibles to take effect (between 30 minutes to two hours), the result is the effects last a long time. Inhaling CBD can produce fast-acting effects, but they diminish quickly.
CBD edibles, on th either hand, have to be digested and pass into the bloodstream before they take effect. This means that the CBD is released slowly over long periods of time as food is digested, resulting in long-lasting effects (up to four hours).
- Accurate dosing
When inhaling CBD via a vape pen or through smoke, it can be very difficult to determine exactly how much CBD you are getting each time.
CBD edibles, meanwhile, are ideal for accurate dosing as they come in standardised doses. This enables you to calculate how much CBD you have consumed and how much you need to consume to achieve your desired results.
Some forms of CBD can be impractical to take, especially when out in public or at work. For example, it may not always be convenient to pull out a pen vape to get your daily dose.
CBD edibles, on the other hand, are super discreet and convenient. Just pop a gummy or cookie in your mouth and chew away. No need to go outside for a vape or to curiously put a drop of CBD oil under your tongue.
While some CBD edibles are pretty basic, Cannabis Bakehouse’s range is so delicious you’ll be licking your fingers and hoovering up every last crumb.
