Let’s get this straight — you can eat and relieve anxiety and pain? CBD edibles are definitely the most interesting way to get your dose of CBD.

Edibles open up a wide spectrum of possibilities for CBD consumption. From sugary treats and energy drink replacements to those classic brownies your parents used to make back in the 70s.

But with such a wide array of snacks available — how do you choose the right one?

Not all CBD edibles are a good value, and many of them should be avoided for having poorly thought-out ingredients, or CBD concentrations that are far too low to be effective.

We’ve done the research and testing for you so you don’t need to. Here are some of our top-rated CBD edibles in a few key categories.

Who doesn’t love honey? This delicious nectar of life can be spread on toast, stirred into a hot tea, or used to sweeten virtually anything you want. Honey is also excellent as a topical for dry, cracked, irritated, inflamed and infected skin. It’s one of the best-kept secrets in the herbal medicine world.

Honey also just so happens to make for an excellent solvent for making CBD-infused edibles. The folks over at Bee Delightful are paving the way in the CBD-infused honey space with their Rescue Blend — made from top-notch locally-sourced honey, and organic hemp extract.

To sweeten the deal, everyone who purchases CBD honey from this company contributes directly to their bumblebee rehabilitation program. They have ambitious goals to save millions, if not billions of bees worldwide.


2. Best CBD Chocolate

Pure Science Lab offers three CBD-infused chocolate products — a dark chocolate bar (140 mg CBD per package), dark chocolate bites (75 mg CBD per package), and dark chocolate peanut butter bites (60 mg CBD per package).

We thoroughly enjoy all three of these delicious CBD chocolates but especially like the dark chocolate bar when it comes to using CBD for more than just its general health benefits.

Each square of the dark chocolate bar contains 5 mg of CBD — making it really easy to calculate exactly how many squares (or half squares) you’ll need to hit the right dose of CBD for you. With 28 squares per bar, you’ve got quite a few doses in each package.

Mixing dark chocolate with CBD is becoming more popular all the time. The active ingredient in dark chocolate that provides the stimulating effect on the central nervous system (makes us feel awake) is synergistic with the added CBD. Many of the side-effects of taking a stimulant like dark chocolate are alleviated with the relaxing effects of the CBD.

We like to keep some of this chocolate around for those times where we feel like we’re starting to burn out at work or university and need a little pick-me-up snack to give a little boost in mental energy.

Lord Jones is in the business of high-end confectionary. What’s their unique twist? They infuse all of their sweet treats with high-grade cannabidiol.

This company is fairly exclusive. Though they offer some products year-round — such as their Old Fashioned CBD Gumdrops — many of their products are only offered for a limited time throughout the year.

We’ve seen such flavors as Apricot Rose, Dark Chocolate Espresso, Sigur Rós, and Blood Orange.

These gumdrops are seriously top-notch and make for an excellent gift for people with expensive taste and a sweet tooth.


4. Best Hemp For DIY CBD Edibles

  • THC Content:

    <0.3%

Kat’s Naturals is one of the only companies we’ve found offering a product like this.

This activated hemp flower is rich in the entire spectrum of cannabinoids and terpenes found in the hemp flowers — which is unsurprising since this product is simply the dried buds of hemp plants soaked in MCT oil.

The applications of this product is virtually endless — you can use it to make your own CBD-rich topicals, oils, edibles, capsules and bath bombs. You can even add this product to your morning smoothie or oatmeal to get a healthy dose of CBD along with all the other phytochemicals naturally produced in the hemp plant.

Kat’s Natural sells this product in a variety of different sizes — ranging from smaller portions containing just one ounce (28 g) of the flower, or a much larger 8 oz (224 g) bag.

This product is excellent for the DIYers out there or people who want to take advantage of the benefits of the whole raw flower and all the CBD, and other cannabinoids, minerals, proteins, fats, and terpenes produced in the plant.


5. Best High-Potency CBD Edible

Nature’s Script makes a lot of excellent CBD products for the public — including these high-potency CBD gummies.

This company uses some of the finest hemp in the United States and provides rigorous and reliable third-party testing for every batch of product they produce in their facilities. This is done to confirm that the products they’re selling are free from heavy metal, pesticide, or biological contaminants — as well as giving proof that the CBD content they claim on the bottle is accurate.

Each of these gummies contains a relatively high dose of 25 mg. For anybody who only needs a small dose of CBD, you can also cut these gummies in halves or thirds to achieve smaller doses.


How To Evaluate CBD Edibles

  1. Look for products made with 100% organic, non-GMO, pesticide-free, industrial hemp grown in the United States or Northern Europe.
  2. Only support CBD companies that regularly provide up to date third-party lab tests to prove their claims.
  3. Strong mission statements are often an indicator of the overall effort put in by the manufacturer — look for companies that publicly donate to charity, or offer a strong (and believable) mission statement.
  4. Compare products by cost per mg of CBD and potency to assess the overall value.
  5. Look at the other ingredients — you’d be surprised how many CBD edibles are made from pure sugar and synthetic additives.

So What Are CBD Edibles Anyway?

The term “CBD Edibles” covers an exceptionally broad range of CBD products. Any edible (or drinkable) application of CBD is considered an edible. This includes everything from CBD gummies and chocolates, to teas and coffees… and more.

Edibles are one of the oldest ways to consume the cannabis plant. Humans have been using the seeds, leaves, and flowers of the plant in cooking for centuries.

A good reason for this is that in order for the psychoactive effects of marijuana to become active, the plant needs to be heated to 220 degrees Celsius (428 F). Therefore, cooking the plant in food provided the necessary heat to activate the molecules that produce the psychoactive effects.

Although CBD edibles don’t have any of the THC and therefore aren’t psychoactive, the plant still needs to be heated to provide the bulk of its effects. This makes cooking with hemp plants an excellent method of administration.

CBD Edibles May Include:

CBD edibles begin and end wherever the imagination of CBD producers can go. This form of CBD flourishes in creativity.

The caveat with edibles is that you often get less CBD content than other forms, and it can be difficult, if not impossible, to accurately dose these foods.

What Are the Benefits of CBD Edibles?

CBD edibles are the first choice for a lot of people just starting out with the supplement because of the familiarity of the medium — vape oils, tinctures, and concentrates can be intimidating if you’ve never used the herb before. Especially with the negative connotation that still weighs over the plant from days past.

Edibles are a friendly, and relatively harmless way of consuming CBD for the first time.

You can take CBD edibles just about anywhere and they’re highly discreet. Nobody bats their eyes when you pull out a CBD snack at work, but if you started vaping you’re likely to get some contentious stares.

Full-spectrum CBD oils generally have an earthy taste that some people find unpleasant. Edibles are the best way to mask or improve that flavor.

One of the best things about CBD edibles is the culture behind it — everything you love about gastronomy can be translated into this medium. It creates a new community of people who want to share and discuss their favorite CBD edibles.

The Benefits of CBD Edible Over Other Means of Administration Include:

  • They’re very convenient
  • They taste delicious
  • They’re relatively affordable
  • It’s hard to overdo it with CBD edibles
  • They’re discreet
  • The grassy hemp flavor of some oils can be masked with other food ingredients

Understanding The Different Types of CBD Edibles

CBD edibles are a broad term — so choosing the best type of edible outside of CBD content is an entirely different endeavor. It really comes down to your personal preference over anything else — each method is going to be virtually the same to your body as everything that goes in is broken down and absorbed anyway.

With that said, the most efficient means of consumption for CBD edibles are the foods high in fatty acids. This is because the CBD is a fat-soluble compound and will follow the absorption of fats through the digestive tract. When we consume foods high in fat, our body prepares by secreting copious amounts of enzymes designed to improve the absorption of fat so that the body can make the most of the meal.

CBD is able to piggyback with the fat into the bloodstream faster, and more completely.

With that said, don’t worry too much if you decide to go with a CBD product that contains more of a sugar base, or water-base than fats — you’re still going to get a healthy dose of CBD as long as the product had enough CBD content to begin with.

Let’s cover some of the most popular categories of CBD edibles and nominate one of our favorites for each category.

1. CBD Chocolate

Chocolate is actually a perfect vector for CBD for three main reasons:

  • High in fat — helping to improve the absorption of CBD through the digestive tract
  • Contains a mild stimulant closely related to caffeine — providing additional benefits on reducing mental fatigue and exhaustion
  • Chocolate flavor easily masks the grassy taste of hemp extracts — helping to hide the taste which some people find less than ideal.

CBD chocolates are one of the most rapidly expanding category of CBD treats we’ve seen. Just make sure you spend your hard-earned money on products that contain reasonably high doses of CBD, and use real chocolate rather than the all-sugar imposters being sold as chocolate these days.

2. CBD Gummies & Other Candy

Gummies were one of the first CBD edibles to enter the mainstream market — and for good reason.

CBD readily dissolves in the sugary gummy base used to make these treats and can be made to provide a reliable dose of CBD for every gummy.

However, there are a few issues with gummies to be aware of.

For starters, CBD gummies are made in molds. If the CBD is added to each mold, we can guarantee that each one contains the same amount of CBD as the other. But this isn’t how many companies are making their gummies. Instead, a large batch of the gummy mix is combined with CBD extract (usually isolate) and stirred around. This is then poured into the molds. Most of the time this is a non-issue, but if the batch wasn’t mixed thoroughly enough, you’re going to get gummies that have lots of CBD, and others with very little — making it difficult to dose them correctly.

The second issue with gummies is the fact that they’re made primarily of sugar — which is well-known to be a bad snack to eat too often. If you’re taking higher doses of CBD every day from gummies, it’s easy to overdo your sugar intake.

With all of that aside, gummies remain one of the best and most popular methods of ingesting CBD in the world. They taste great, are highly affordable, last a long time on the shelf, and provide relatively accurate doses of CBD with every gummy.

3. CBD Coffee

Coffee and CBD pair exceptionally well together. Caffeine is a well-known stimulant and nootropic, helping to support energy levels, improve focus and concentration, and delay the onset of mental fatigue or exhaustion.

Unfortunately, caffeine also comes with some side-effects — including jitteriness and shaking, anxiety episodes, and spikes in blood pressure.

CBD has the unique ability to address most (if not all) of these side-effects without negatively impacting the beneficial effects of the caffeine. The synergy between coffee and CBD can’t be understated. We often take CBD oils or capsules along with our coffee for this very reason, and the results are nothing short of amazing.

Pre-mixing CBD with coffee is nothing new in this regard but adds a layer of convenience to the process. You no longer have to think about your supplementation in the morning, just make your pot of coffee as you do every morning and you get both.

CBD coffees tend to be slightly higher priced than other forms of CBD, which is fair enough — you have to remember that this is a specialty item. If you want the most cost-effective option just take some CBD oil along with your regular coffee.

But if you’re a connoisseur of sorts, this is something you simply need to try.

4. CBD Tea

Much like coffee, CBD teas are becoming more popular as a means of using CBD as the years go on. Companies are adding CBD to all sorts of tea formulas from green tea and matcha, to fruity or powdered teas.

We’re big fans of tea — and actively seek out every CBD-infused tea we can get our hands-on.

To tell the truth, we’ve only found a small handful of products we actually like, and many of the best ones are way overpriced for what you’re actually getting. But things are certainly improving in this space, with companies like Buddha Teas, and Pure Science Labs putting out some real top-notch CBD-infused teas at a reasonable price.

One of the downsides of tea is that it’s water-based instead of oil-based. This is a problem because CBD is a fat-soluble compound and therefore doesn’t dissolve well in water. In order to get all the CBD out of the tea sachets, you’ll need to use boiling water and allow the tea to steep for long periods of time — which isn’t ideal for the tea itself. Green and black teas will easily over-brew in these conditions, leaving the beverage tasting highly astringent and bitter.

For this reason, we prefer using CBD-infused herbal teas to traditional green or black teas because they allow you to use hotter water, and let the tea steep for longer periods of time (around 10 or 15 minutes). This allows the CBD ample opportunity to dissolve into the water as much as possible before you drink it — producing stronger effects and giving you more for bang for your buck.

5. CBD-Infused Alcoholic Drinks

Alcoholic beverages infused with CBD are brand new to the market. There really isn’t much in this category, and most of them have yet to become legal internationally.

However, there are some really big players stepping into this scene like Molson Coors (a Canadian beer corporation). This space is expected to grow exponentially over the next few years, so keep your eyes open — we’ll be reporting regularly about the advancements in this space as it comes.

In the meantime, the best way to get started with alcoholic CBD cocktails is to use CBD honey, tinctures (preferably alcohol-based), and glycetracts made with CBD. You can simply mix these products into your cocktails as you would a syrup.

Interestingly, CBD tinctures added to beer provide a pleasant “hoppy” taste that compliments the flavor of the beer almost perfectly. Hops are one of the only other members of the Cannabis family of plants — so it comes to no surprise that these two plants combine so well together.

6. CBD Cooking Oils & Butter

Cooking oils and butter infused with CBD is a great way to use CBD with your cooking at home. The highly fat-soluble cannabinoids in the hemp plant dissolve efficiently in various cooking oils — including butter, ghee, coconut oil, olive oil, and hemp seed oil.

In fact, the first step to making a CBD edible is to first make an infused oil just like this. Products in this category simply perform the first step for you so you can just start cooking right away.

There are all kinds of products in this category. You’ll be able to find virtually any cooking oil you prefer — however, most experts agree that using saturated fats like coconut oil or butter are the best for this. They’re more stable under heat and have a greater ability to dissolve CBD and other cannabinoids — allowing manufacturers to make stronger oils than they could with polyunsaturated oils like olive, avocado, or hemp seed oil.

Whenever using CBD cooking oils, make sure you’re aware of the potency of the product your using as they’re available in a wide range of potency options. We recommend finding something with higher potency and diluting it with non-active cooking oil to get the right dose.

It’s easier to dilute a high-potency cooking oil than it is to boost a low-potency oil.


Dosing CBD Edibles 101

Dosing can be difficult with edibles but there are ways to figure it out.

With something like baked goods, teas, or coffees all you can reasonably calculate is a range of dose for each product. There are a lot of factors that can affect the amount of CBD and other cannabinoids contained in these products. For example, with baked goods, the heat of the oven can convert some of the CBD into other cannabinoids like CBN. The oven temperature and time spent under heat can all affect the amount of CBD that gets converted. This makes it incredibly difficult to know exactly how much CBD you’re getting.

With other forms, like coffee or tea, the amount of time the product was steeped can also affect how much CBD you end up getting.

CBD gummies and candies are much easier to calculate since the manufacturer will provide the exact amount of CBD contained in each piece. You can simply add them up to reach the desired dose.

Here are some tips for calculating the amount of CBD for different types of edibles. You can then use this information to match up with your target dose (more on this below).

Type of EdibleNotes on Calculating Dose
CBD ChocolateChocolates will list the amount of CBD in the entire bar, which you can divide for each block to get the dose per block.
GummiesGummies are the easiest to dose because the manufacturer will list the exact amount of CBD contained in each gummy.
CoffeeCoffee can be roughly calculated by dividing the total CBD content of the bag, with the number of servings listed on the package. You will need to adjust this if you prefer stronger or weaker brewing.
TeaTeas will usually list the amount of CBD per tea bag — but you have to consider that unless you’re brewing your tea very strong, only a fraction of the CBD contained in the tea bags will enter the water.
Alcoholic DrinksAlcoholic drinks should be calculated from the source of CBD you’re using to make the drink. For example, if you’re using a tincture or syrup to add the CBD, use the potency (mg/mL) of the syrup to measure out the correct amount.
Cooking OilsCooking oils can be calculated by dividing the total CBD of the bottle with the volume of the container. This will give you a measurement in mg/mL. Once you know the amount of CBD you want, you can easily figure out the amount of oil you need in mL.

Ultimately, it’s important to remember that many of these edibles aren’t meant to be used for any specific medical conditions — they serve more as an interesting way to use CBD for general health support. If your goal is to address specific symptoms of any kind, we recommend going with something more precise like an oil, capsules, or stick to gummies with standardized CBD concentrations.

Is Full-Spectrum Important for Edibles?

The other major decision you need to make is deciding between using a product made from a CBD isolate or a full-spectrum extract.

1. What are Full-Spectrum Edibles?

Full-spectrum edibles are made to preserve the natural cannabinoid profile found in the plant. All cannabinoids contained in the hemp plant will end up in the final product for this type of product.

This is generally preferred by purists looking to get the benefits of the cannabis plant as a whole, rather than just one compound produced by the plant. There is a natural phenomenon called the entourage effect — which suggests that the entire phytochemical of the hemp plant work together to produce stronger effects than any of the individual components in isolation.

There are Definite Advantages to Using Full-Spectrum Edibles:

  • They leverage additional health benefits of other cannabinoids such as CBC, CBG, CBN, THC, or THCV
  • They usually require less processing and require fewer additives
  • A lower dose is needed to produce the same level of effects from an isolate

However, There are Also Some Disadvantages to Using Full-Spectrum Edibles:

  • They’re more expensive than isolates
  • There’s the potential for psychoactive effects if THC levels are above 0.3%
  • Each product can vary significantly depending on the other cannabinoids and terpenes in the extract
  • It can be hard to standardize exact levels of CBD with these products

In most cases, full-spectrum edibles are a better option. They’re stronger acting and produce a broader range of effects than isolated compounds. Most health practitioners with experience in herbal medicine prefer full-spectrum edibles over CBD isolates.

2. CBD Isolate Edibles

CBD isolates are made by concentrating the CBD content in hemp extracts by removing everything else — including the waxes, alcohols, esters, terpenes, and all other cannabinoids. This isolate is then used to make the edible by adding directly, or by first dissolving the CBD isolate in a carrier oil.

A lot of manufacturers choose to use isolates because they’re cheaper than most full-spectrum extracts, and are much easier to control the dose.

If you take 100 mg of pure CBD and add it to a 30 mL bottle, it’s easy to state that this bottle has 100 mg of CBD. Trying to do this with a full-spectrum extract is a lot more difficult because the concentration of CBD can vary significantly from one batch to the next.

CBD Isolates Offer Some Clear Advantages:

  • CBD content is easily standardized to exact amounts
  • Products made from isolate tend to be cheaper
  • There’s more research on CBD isolates
  • It’s easy to keep THC levels well below psychoactive levels

CBD Isolates Also Come With a Few Downsides:

  • A higher dose is needed to produce the same benefits as full-spectrum oils
  • It’s harder to trace the CBD back to its source
  • It lacks the benefits of other cannabinoids unless they’re added in again after

CBD isolates are useful for people looking for simple, cost-effective CBD edibles, but often fall short when trying to address specific symptoms or health complaints.


Red Flags to Watch Out for When Buying CBD Edibles

While researching CBD edibles, make sure none of these issues are present:

  1. Complete lack of third-party testing
  2. No carrier oil source is listed
  3. Hemp sourced from China or India (high contamination rate)
  4. No dosage listed on the package
  5. No CBD or THC concentration listed on the packaging
  6. Bold and unbelievable claims abundant on the product page

How Do We Evaluate CBD Products?

If you’re brand new to the CBD industry or trying to find a new CBD supplier, it can be tricky to navigate the loosely regulated CBD market.

This CBD edible buyer’s guide has been made with your interests in mind.

Here, you’ll find out how to evaluate companies and their CBD edibles so you get the most bang for your buck and find the right product for your needs.

Here’s our process for assessing CBD edibles.

First We Assess the Company as a Whole

When you’re in the market for a new CBD supplier, you should always take a look at the company’s policies and procedures before looking at the products.

Taking the time to do a short background check on the company can save you a lot of trouble down the road.

Here are a few questions we ask before ordering from any CBD company.

A) Where Is The Company’s Hemp Grown?

The company’s hemp source can make or break its final products. If it’s getting its hemp from a sketchy source, a few undesirable or potentially dangerous materials can end up in your CBD edibles.

A good hemp source is one that is 100% organic, non-GMO, pesticide-free, and THC-free. Some of the best hemp is grown in the United States but there are also a lot of great hemp farms in Northern Europe.

Always try to find a company that hits all of the above markers for hemp quality. This leads us to the next factor.

B) Does The Company Have Third-Party Lab Tests Available?

If a company can’t produce third-party test results, it’s not worth your time. There are plenty of other companies out there making CBD edibles that spend the time and effort having their products tested in an independent lab so you there is no frame of doubt about the quality of the product you’re putting into your body.

The CBD industry is poorly regulated, so there are no government agencies keeping CBD manufacturers accountable for the products they produce. This allows companies to create products that are surprisingly low in quality, and make claims that they’re much better than they are.

Third-party testing is an optional step companies can take to prove that the claims they’re making about their products are true.

We’re skeptical about companies that don’t do this because it feels as though they have something to hide.

All of the products recommended above are tested by third-party labs.

C) Does the Company Have a Strong Mission Statement?

A strong mission statement might be an indicator of overall quality. If the company cares about the industry as a whole – and not just about profits — it’s more likely the company is taking measures to ensure their products are actually useful.

As you search for your next CBD edible supplier, you’ll see that many companies have a variation of the following:

“We want to provide the world with the natural benefits of CBD.”

In other words, “we want to make lots of money.”

Look for a company that puts effort into educating consumers, funding CBD research, or donating to relevant charities. This increases the chances of finding a supplier that cares.


Secondly, We Assess the Individual Product in Question

Great, you’ve found a company or two that can answer all of the questions above. Now, how do you compare their products?

Here’s How We Compare Similar CBD Edibles:

1. What Is the Cost per mg of CBD?

If one of your main concerns is price, you’ll want to compare products by the cost per mg of CBD.

As you search for your next CBD supplier, you’re going to see all sorts of concentrations and prices. Looking at the cost per mg of CBD gives you an easy and meaning metric to compare the products by.

Just take the total cost of the product and divide it by the total CBD. This way, you’ll see how much you’re paying for the ingredient you’re looking for — CBD.

Of course, this needs to be kept in the context of the edible itself as well. The other ingredients in the edible will have an impact on this number.

Obviously, a CBD honey is going to be more expensive than coconut oil — for example. This metric is most useful for comparing CBD edibles of the same type with each other — but can be useful across different types of edibles as well as long as you keep this in mind.

Comparing the Cost per mg CBD of Our Top-Rated CBD Edibles
Product ImageProduct NameCost per mg CBD
Canna Bees — CBD Honey$0.11 – $0.15
Pure Science Lab — Dark Chocolate Bar$0.21 – $0.28
Lord Jones — Old Fashioned Gumdrops$0.25 – $0.30
Kat’s Naturals — Activated Hemp Flower$0.06
Nature’s Script — High-Potency CBD Gummies$0.09

2. How Potent Is It?

You should always double-check the potency of your products. You’ll see many products with the same amount of CBD but in different sized containers. This can affect how much product you need to use to get your desired results.

As an example, a pack of 10 gummies with 500 mg of CBD (50 mg per gummy) might be better for experienced users than a pack of 5 gummies with 200 mg of CBD (40 mg per gummy).

Whatever your goals are, it’s always good to look at the actual CBD content per serving before you buy.

Different forms of CBD edibles will have a different potency measurement. Here are some examples of how we prefer to measure potency for different forms of edibles:

  • CBD Coffee — mg per cup
  • CBD tea — mg per cup or per teabag
  • CBD Honey — mg per mL
  • Baked goods — mg per serving
  • Chocolate — mg per block or per bar
  • Cooking oils — mg per mL
  • Alcoholic drinks — mg per drink
  • Gummies — mg per piece

Lord Jones — Old Fashioned Gumdrops20 mg per Piece
Kat’s Naturals — Activated Hemp Flower12 mg per Gram
Nature’s Script — High-Potency CBD Gummies25 mg per Piece

3. What Other Ingredients Does the Company Use to Make the Edibles?

Edibles come with another layer of consideration from other forms of CBD. We also have to asses the ingredients of the edible itself on top of the CBD or other cannabinoids.

For example, what’s the quality of the brownie itself outside the CBD content? The hemp extract used might be top-notch but if the brownie itself isn’t any good — we can’t reasonably recommend it can we?

This step is much more difficult to assess because there are so many different variables involved depending on the specific edible you’re looking at.

We usually start by taking note of the other ingredients used in the product. This allows us to assess if the other aspects of the edible look good or not.
