CBD stands for cannabidiol and it’s one of the most active ingredients in the cannabis plant. Ingesting CBD can bring about a number of benefits.
These benefits include pain relief, anxiety relief, help with focus, epilepsy treatment, and many other positives.
Another major selling point of CBD is that you don’t end up getting the “marijuana high” that THC is known for bringing on.
One way that many newcomers have gotten into CBD is through CBD infused candy. Interested in learning more? Continue reading and we’ll walk you through everything you need to know about CBD candy.
Gummy bears are extremely popular for infusion, whether the newly introduced ingredient is alcohol, THC, or CBD. That’s because these little guys are sweet, small, and enjoyable to chew or suck on.

What’s better than gourmet chocolate? Gourmet chocolate with CBD in it, obviously.

That’s right, saltwater taffy isn’t just for tourists anymore. Now, you can get CBD-infused saltwater taffy in a variety of tasty flavors including Strawberries and Cream, Passion Fruit, Peppermint, Bergamot Orange, Extra Dark Chocolat, and Sea Salt Caramel.
Each bag usually contains around twenty pieces of candy with each piece containing 20mg of CBD. That means each bag contains a whopping 400mg of CBD!
CBD Hard Candy
CBD-infused hard candies are popular because of the way the CBD is absorbed. Instead of chewing something like a gummy and then absorbing the CBD through your stomach, with hard candy you are sucking on it the whole time.
This means that the CBD will absorb in your mouth through the mucous membrane.
Some of the most popular CBD hard candy flavors include Caramel Apple Pie, Pomegranate Lemonade, Blue Raspberry, and Cartoon Cereal Crunch.
You can typically expect 60mg of CBD for each bag. And a bag usually contains four pieces of hard candy.
Oh, and did we mention that these candies are completely free of gluten, soy, dairy, and nuts?
CBD Almond Bars
Nut bars have been a popular healthy snack for a few decades now. But if you really want to up the health benefits of a bar, now you can get them infused with CBD!
These healthy snack bars contain an amazing list of different superfood ingredients including chia seeds, hemp seeds, and beets. They also provide your body with plenty of iron, calcium, fiber, and potassium.
Not to mention they’ve got plenty of CBD in them too. These usually contain around 15mg of CBD per bar.
Make Your Own CBD Snacks
With CBD candy and snacks, you’re free to customize however you like. For example, why not take your favorite chocolate covered pretzels and dip them in some organic CBD peanut butter?
Or crush up some of that delicious CBD chocolate bar and sprinkle it over your favorite nut mix for a tasty and relaxation-inducing trail mix.
The Best Time to Eat Your CBD Candy
Obviously, you can eat your CBD candy whenever you want. But that doesn’t mean there are optimal times for ingesting this miracle ingredient.
Here’s the thing, CBD affects people differently. Some people become extremely relaxed and sedate when they ingest CBD while others feel more energetic and have better focus.
And on top of that, different CBD products might also affect you differently.
Because of this, it’s recommended that you try out different types of CBD candies and see how they affect you. If one makes you relaxed or sleepy, it would be advisable to take that sometime before bed instead of first thing in the morning.
If you feel another helps to wake you up and improves your focus then you should consider taking that candy before a big meeting or an exam.
Consider also spacing out the times that you have your candies so that you can maximize their effects.
Which CBD Candy Is Best for You?
Most of CBD candy products that you’ll find on the market today taste just like their non-CBD counterparts.
In fact, the CBD market is so competitive that some of these candies probably taste even better than the candies that don’t have any CBD in them at all.
And when you’re looking for the one that’s best for you, that most likely will just depend on which type of candy you prefer.
Don’t be afraid to experiment and try out different types to see which effects and which flavors are best suited for you.
