In many jurisdictions, medicinal marijuana requires a prescription from qualified physicians, but edible cannabidiol (CBD) infused edible do not. The reason for this is the risk of negative effects associated with the psychoactive ingredient, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).

CBD is a primary chemical component of cannabis that has anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. It also helps in relaxation without the side-effects of hallucinations and addiction and is used in treating various medical conditions such as epilepsy.

Today, CBD is added to a wide range of products such as creams for muscle aches, tinctures for flavoring, vape oils and as an ingredient of edible goods. Some companies also manufacture and sell CBD-infused products for pets. Other brands are in the form of tea. Some of the most popular CBD-infused edibles are the following:
