What Are CBD Edibles?
CBD edibles refer to any CBD-infused product that you eat. The trend began with CBD gummies, as people sought to enjoy their hemp extract in a sweet, tasty format. (After all, many CBD tinctures have an unpleasant taste, leading users to give up on their supplement routine).
Edibles are currently one of the most famed and popular ways to enjoy CBD. As such, plenty of brands stock edibles in numerous forms. You can find pretty much any food infused with a healthy amount of CBD these days, including both sweet and savoury options. Beverages are also increasingly popular.
However, few edibles are comparable to the CBD lozenges sold here at Provacan. No matter where you search for edible CBD in the UK, you’re unlikely to encounter such quality.
It’s worth noting that edibles may work differently compared to other consumption methods. CBD edibles have found popularity because they are tasty, but they may not be as bioavailable as other methods. Eating CBD means that it takes longer to reach the endocannabinoid system (ECS), and during this time, some CBD may be lost due to digestive metabolism. For this reason, the CBD bioavailability of something like a Provacan vape product or eLiquid may be higher.
However, this is precisely the reason we designed our Provacan CBD lozenges. As the lozenge dissolves under the tongue, the CBD reaches the ECS in the same way as an oral tincture. Lozenges provide the same sweetness as many other edibles on the market, but with increased efficiency and better quality overall.
Where to Buy CBD Edibles Online Safely
It goes without saying that not all CBD products are made equal. There is little oversight in terms of CBD in the UK, which means many products are unregulated. As a result, the onus is, unfortunately, on the consumer to be careful when buying products. Take time to find a product that is safe and right for you, because trust us, it’s worth it when it comes to the health and wellness of your body and mind.
You can tell high-quality CBD oil edibles apart from the rest in several ways. First of all, look for limited ingredients on the product label. Here at Provacan, we offer lozenges flavoured with natural ingredients, and no artificial colourings. Plus, our team sweetens the lozenges with stevia rather than synthetic, processed sugars.
It’s also vital to find CBD edibles that comply with UK regulations. All edibles must contain hemp-derived CBD with less than 0.2% THC. Sourcing CBD from hemp plants helps manufacturers to ensure that they remain within the THC limit. Provacan uses EU-grown hemp, sticking to strict regulations to ensure this is the case. Each one of our products contains less than 0.05% THC; well within the limits.
You can even confirm the cannabinoid content of our products by viewing our labsheets. All reputable companies provide lab reports on their websites, ensuring that their products are safe and trustworthy. Provacan’s certificates of analysis are located in the ‘Lab Reports’ tab.
In addition to verifying CBD content, certificates of analysis also confirm that the products contain no traces of heavy metals or chemical residue from things like fertilisers and pesticides.
Are CBD Edibles Legal in the UK?
CBD edibles are everywhere in the UK. Most products on the market are safe and non-intoxicating, as long as they are made from hemp and come from a reputable manufacturer. Although hemp is a type of cannabis, it contains minimal THC, which is the psychoactive cannabinoid that causes a high.
Hemp-infused CBD products help to ensure the presence of low amounts of THC (the threshold is 0.2%). Here at Provacan, we ensure that our products include less than 0.05% THC. This is nowhere near enough to cause an intoxicating effect. With Provacan, you can enjoy your edibles free of almost any THC whatsoever, while still benefiting from a broad range of cannabinoids and terpenes.
Our lab reports verify that this is the case. While not all CBD edibles in the UK pass these regulations, Provacan ensures that ours pass the tests. We source all our CBD from organic farms in the EU, which operate under strict farming rules. This prevents unwanted quantities of THC sneaking into our edibles.
Why Choose Provacan's Lozenges?
Contrary to other brands, Provacan has opted to create CBD lozenges for the unique benefits that they offer. Lozenges differ from the gummies and candies offered by other brands, which are often filled with sugar and other unhealthy ingredients. So, what sets our lozenges apart?
Provacan’s CBD lozenges offer a tasty portion of CBD in four flavours:
- Honey & Lemon
The lozenges contain only natural flavourings and colourings, alongside stevia as a natural sugar replacement. Each lozenge contains 2mg of CBD, giving you total control over how much you use at any one time. Each tub contains 25 lozenges, small enough to carry around in your bag, but enough to keep you going.
According to our professional team, lozenges could also be more effective than gummy bears. Research indicates that CBD ingested orally – i.e., in edible form – takes longer to kick in and reach the ECS. Some of the CBD may also become lost as the body breaks down the food in the digestive system.
Lozenges offer a potentially more efficient alternative. As you suck on the lozenge and it dissolves in your mouth, CBD enters the body through glands in the mouth. It’s the same way as a tincture works, meaning potentially quicker effects and more bioavailability.
For these reasons, Provacan lozenges offer the best of both worlds. You benefit from tasty, natural flavours alongside fast-acting and potent CBD effects. Even with a small 2mg portion, our CBD is effective; you can use multiple in one day or combine them with our other CBD products.
Provacan products are the first and only CBD lozenges for sale in the UK, try them out today, and experience the difference that they can offer in your day-to-day life.
