Cannabidiol, also known as CBD, is found in the cannabis plant. It is an excellent pain reliever and offers many other health benefits. It is now presented as CBD lollipops that give almost instant relief to make consuming it a lot easier.
The added advantage with CBD is that it does not contain Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive compound in cannabis that gives the high. However, CBD acts on the endocannabinoid system the same way THC does, though the effect is different.
What is a CBD Lollipop?
In a hard candy format, it’s a regular lollipop infused with CBD, the cannabis extract with several benefits without any side effects. These lollipops are easy to consume and are a boon for people on the go.
Lollipops Preferable to CBD Oil
CBD, presented in a lollipop format, helps remove CBD oil’s odd taste, which most people do not like. When you consume it as a lollipop, it does not have the classic earthy taste and smell associated with CBD oil.
Moreover, there are no inhibitions in consuming a lollipop in public, which doesn’t apply to CBD oil, cream, or any other format.
The advantage with CBD lollipops is that they look and taste like regular lollipops, and no one notices the difference. Although several states have legalized CBD and cannabis, New Jersey is the latest to vote in its favor. However, sadly, several states still frown on marijuana-based CBD, where it is banned.
Look for the Label
When buying lollipops, look for the label with details of the dosage mentioned. Unlike CBD oil, which you need to measure before consuming, lollipops are easier to pop. You can also choose your flavor from the range that includes orange that comes in a distinct orange color-coded label, with terpenes, considered a hybrid.
And strawberry is red, with the same hybrid terpenes profile. The purple-colored CBD lollipops have Indica dominant terpenes profile, while the blue-colored lollipop is a hybrid that’s an excellent mood elevator.
CBD Lollipops and Bioavailability
The quantity of the substance entering your bloodstream is known as bioavailability. For instance, when you consume a lollipop with 10mg of CBD with terpenes and 50% bioavailability, only 5mg of it effectively enters the bloodstream.
However, this doesn’t apply to lollipops, considering they linger in your mouth for a long time, allowing the CBD to be directly absorbed into the bloodstream even before entering the digestive system. That’s the advantage with CBD lollipops, as they have a much higher bioavailability as a sublingual edible. This bioavailability property is what distinguishes CBD candies and lollipops from vapes and tinctures.
Moreover, these lollipops are available online, and buying them takes hardly a few minutes of your time. However, you need to make sure that CBD products are legal in your state; else, you need to order it from where it’s legal.
Summing it Up
Lollipops are probably the easiest and most discreet way of consuming CBD to eliminate your anxiety disorder or insomnia. You can suck on a lollipop to get relief from chronic pain, as it acts as an effective painkiller and anti-inflammatory.
