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:

Bhang

This edible brand comes in chocolate bars and mint flavored sprays. The caramel chocolate bars contain 50 mg CBD and 50 mg THC. This medical dark chocolate is the perfect blend of two active ingredients. It can be purchased in 42.5 g pack that is vegan and gluten-free.

Meanwhile, the 98 percent Crystalline Isolate is a hemp-derived isolate that can be orally consumed. The packaging of the product is designed for discretion. It is free from heavy metals, pesticides, and toxic solvents.

The brand also has chewing gum that is available in fresh mint flavor. It contains 10 mg cannabis CBD and 17 mg hemp oil each. It is a zero-calorie gum that comes in a pack of four. The hemp oil is blended with lemongrass and mango for flavoring.

Diamond CBD

This subsidiary of PotNetwork Holding, Inc. (OTCMKTS:POTN) provides edible products that primarily include flavored gummies with varying CBD concentrations. Unlike in other brands, the edibles in this brand do not contain THC. Some of the bestsellers are Chill Gummy Bears and the 4-6 Hours of Relaxation Diamond CBD Shot with 20 mg CBD.

Diamond CBD also has Meds Biotech Gummies, which are pharmacist-formulated gummy bears that contain highly concentrated CBD at 1,000 mg. These are available in a wide range of flavors that include watermelon, mini fruits, cola and sour. These are also available in many shapes such as capsules and rings.

Honey sticks are available in 100-piece packs with 10 mg CBD content per stick. It can be eaten directly or put in hot tea. Its two ingredients are honey and industrial hemp cannabidiol.

Kiva

It has two very popular edible products: the Ginger Dark Chocolate Bar with 120 mg CBD and 120 mg THC, and the Espresso Dark Chocolate with 60 mg CBD and 60 mg THC. These products are 100 percent from California cannabis plants.

The chocolate bars are available in eight flavors, namely, the Ginger Dark Chocolate, the Espresso Dark Chocolate, the Vanilla Chai Milk Chocolate, the Blackberry Dark Chocolate, the Mint Irish Cream Dark Chocolate, the Tangerine Dark Chocolate, the Milk Chocolate and the pure Dark Chocolate.
