The cannabis edibles market is a billion-dollar industry that shows no signs of slowing down. Legal in Canada and a growing number of American states, CBD-infused products are becoming the popular choice for adults who are looking for alternative ways to relieve their daily anxiety and tackle their health issues. In addition to the therapeutic benefits, the variety of high-end, curated,such as teas and edibles proves that CBD-infused products are shaking up the specialty market.
From the Margins to Centre Stage
While mainstream, legal CBD use may be a recent development, this therapeutic cannabidiol has a long history. It’s been documented thatwas used by Chinese Emperor Sheng Nung in 2737 BC in an infused tea to treat a number of illnesses including rheumatism and gout.
We’ve come a long way since then, with the number of CBD products growing yearly — from capsules to oils, and edibles like gummies.
Specialty companies such as Olli Brands aren’t merely satisfied with simply providing an outlet for cannabis gummies and teas — they insist on a curated edible experience thanks to a world-renowned teasommelier overseeing exclusive tea blends and recipes made under the eye of a Michelin starred, trained chef.
As the general population becomes more aware of the benefits CBD offers and the tailored ways users can enjoy their experience, brands are adapting and evolving to fit the market’s changing demands.
Edibles allow CBD users of all familiarity levels to incorporate their favorite products into their daily lives. Coffee or tea enthusiasts don’t have to miss a beat in their morning routine thanks to the number of oils available. Specialty products offer users — whether they’re familiar or not with the world of CBD — the opportunity to tailor their experience and select the type of edible that fits into their lifestyle.
Scientists are continuously researching the cannabis plant to better understand its properties and the benefits and risks associated. As it stands, there are already numerous health benefits associated with the CBD compound of the plant — the one that offers a relaxing non-psychotropic experience much different from that of the THC compound most associated with the experience of getting high.
CBD products offer an alternative to the psychotropic high — they offer improved sleep, anxiety and stress relief, reduced chronic pain and inflammation, and a general sense of calm and well-being.
By incorporating CBD in the form of an edible — whether it’s a solid gummy or incorporated into your favorite daily tea — your body is exposed to its anti-inflammatory properties and antioxidants, in a safe and accessible way.
