Hemp is amazing and versatile — it makes everything from protein powder to clothing to biofuel. There’s nothing hemp can’t do. Hemp offers so many potential benefits. 

There are several different types of hemp edibles, and each type produces unique effects. Here’s how to choose the right hemp edible for you, whether you’re looking for the soothing effects of CBD or the uplifting effects of THC.

What Is an Edible?

Technically, an edible is anything you can eat. It can be an avocado, a pizza, or your mom’s homemade lasagna. Cannabis culture uses the term “edible” to refer to a cannabinoid-infused food or drink. 

Funnily enough, it can also be an avocado, a pizza, or your mom’s homemade lasagna. Any food, drink, or snack can be infused with cannabinoids if prepared properly.

Most of the time, cannabinoid-infused edibles are sweet foods like gummies, lozenges, mints, candies, cookies, or brownies that you can purchase at a dispensary or online (depending on your state). 

It’s easier to control portions with small, sweet foods. They’re also shelf stable, so you can buy a bag at a time and slowly use them up before they go stale or expire.

What Is the Difference Between Hemp and Cannabis?

There is no biological difference between hemp and cannabis. They’re the same plant; hemp is simply cannabis that has been selectively cultivated to produce significantly less naturally occurring delta-9 THC. 

Delta-9 THC is the main psychoactive component of cannabis, which is controlled and regulated. Hemp can contain a maximum of 0.3% THC.

Although many people refer to THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) when they say they want an edible, that isn’t always the case. There can be THC-free edibles that only contain wellness cannabinoids like CBD. 

That’s why it’s so important to read the packaging. You need to know what you’re in for before you start snacking, and you need to be sure the edible you choose will give you the desired experience. 

If you’re looking for a THC-free experience, look for edibles labeled “broad-spectrum.” Broad-spectrum means that all detectable THC content has been removed from the edible. If you want an elevating experience, check the ingredients. 

What Is a Hemp Edible?

A hemp edible is a food or a gummy made with hemp extract. There are two different types of hemp edibles, each producing a different set of effects. One is strictly for wellness, and the other has some elevating properties that make them both fun and relieving when you eat them. 

Edibles contain cannabinoids from cannabis plants. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a cannabinoid. CBD naturally occurs in all plants within the cannabis sativa family, but most of the CBD used to make CBD oil comes from low-THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) hemp plants. 

Your body and brain are full of cannabinoid receptors that form a huge network called an endocannabinoid system. Your body makes and sends endogenous cannabinoids to this system. 

The endocannabinoid system's receptors support a range of processes, including your body’s internal sleep/wake cycle and stress management system.

CBD from cannabis sativa plants works with those same receptors. It doesn’t do anything to change the way your body works. It just encourages your body to work the way it’s meant to. 

What Are the Differences Between Hemp Edibles?

It’s important to understand the difference between the two main types of hemp edibles is important. Knowing will help you find the kind of edible you want and reduce the chances that you’ll be underwhelmed or overwhelmed by the edible you’ve chosen. 

The effects of hemp edibles come from the cannabinoids they contain. Some hemp edibles contain only CBD. 

Other cannabinoids can be used to provide relief or provide an elevating recreational experience. It’s important to know what you want and what you’re about to ingest before you use a hemp edible.

So before buying any old bag of watermelon CBD gummy bears, let’s talk about what type you may want.

CBD Edibles

CBD edibles are a gentle wellness supplement. They work to support the body’s stress management system. They can help to ease feelings of tension and support your natural sleep process at bedtime.

CBD edibles will make you feel good but not “out of the ordinary” good. You’ll feel exactly like yourself, just a little more chilled out and zen. CBD doesn’t do anything to cloud your thinking or change the way your body sends and receives messages to itself. 

THC Edibles

Cannabinoids like delta-8 THC and HHC will give you an elevated feeling. They can be tension reducers, creativity enhancers, or simply enlightening. Since hemp contains small amounts of delta-9 THC, some hemp edibles will also contain hemp-derived delta-9 THC.

These cannabinoids will affect the way your body and brain communicate. You’ll feel elevated, so you should use them responsibly. 

Full-Spectrum vs. Broad-Spectrum

When choosing an edible, it’s important to read the packaging to determine the type of CBD you are buying. If the product is full-spectrum CBD gummies, the naturally occurring THC in the hemp plant is left intact, along with the terpenes and other beneficial cannabinoids. Broad-spectrum CBD has had the trace amounts of THC effectively removed. 

It’s best to find broad-spectrum products if you have to get drug tests to avoid any THC. Similarly, if you experience side effects from THC, finding THC-free products is the way to go. 

Always look for products that have been third-party lab tested. These lab reports will show any contaminants, heavy metals, pesticides, terpenes, and cannabinoids in the batch. 

Are Hemp Edibles Legal?

Hemp is legal on a federal level. Agricultural or industrial hemp is an important crop, and the 2018 Farm Bill made it legal for hemp to become an important part of American industry. Many states have unique laws regarding the use of certain hemp-derived cannabinoids.

CBD is legal in every state as long as it doesn’t contain any trace amounts of delta-9 THC. These hemp edibles are called broad-spectrum edibles. All the detectable delta-9 THC was removed when the edibles were made. 

Most states allow the sale and use of CBD products that contain naturally occurring trace amounts of delta-9 THC. These are called full-spectrum edibles. Each state has its own conditions and specifications for the legality of hemp products. Check your local laws and ensure the hemp edible you buy meets your state’s criteria.

Psychoactive cannabinoids, like delta-8 THC and HHC, are regulated with more scrutiny. Some states prohibit the sale of products containing these cannabinoids or restrict their sale to people with medical cannabis licenses who purchase from regulated cannabis dispensaries. 

Hemp edibles containing cannabinoids other than CBD can’t be sold in or shipped to the following states due to local laws:

  • Alaska
  • Arizona
  • Arkansas
  • Colorado
  • Delaware
  • Idaho
  • Iowa
  • Mississippi
  • Rhode Island
  • Utah
  • Washington

How Do I Use Hemp Edibles?

Hemp edibles should be used safely and according to package instructions for maximum enjoyment. The packaging should always tell you the total amount of cannabinoids per serving and how many edibles a serving size includes.

Using CBD Edibles

You can use high-quality CBD edibles daily, whenever you need them. Many people like to use one edible in the morning to keep them at ease throughout the day and another CBD edible at night to help them wind down. 


There isn’t an official recommendation for how much CBD makes up a single serving, but most people find that 25 mg per serving works well for them. You may need to experiment a little bit. Listen to your body and do what feels right. 

Studies have shown that people can safely enjoy as much as 2,500 mg of CBD per day. That’s excessive for most people, but it just shows you how high the ceiling goes. If you feel like you need 50 mg a day or 100 mg daily, you have nothing to worry about regarding recognized limits.

Using THC or HHC Edibles

Hemp edibles that contain forms of THC or HHC will produce noticeable effects. If you’ve never used either cannabinoid before, it’s best to start with a small amount. Eat one of these edibles and wait about an hour to see how you feel. 

If you eat too many, you may not enjoy your experience. The THC content will make a big difference in how you experience them.

Use these edibles when you’re in a safe place, and you know you won’t need to drive or handle anything important — plan for it to be an off-the-grid relaxation experience.
