The Ultimate CBD Snack Guide
August 26, 2020
The tidal wave of CBD products surging the market is a direct reflection of the growing demand for this purportedly therapeutic cannabinoid — and we’re completely on board! According to Forbes, CBD is expected to reach over $20 billion a year in sales by 2024, with edibles at the head of the pack.
The good news is CBD snacks and edibles are so easy to come by; you see them at your local coffee shop, grocery stores, and even big retail chains like Bed, Bath, and Beyond. However, this also makes it near impossible to decide about what businesses are reputable, and what products are high-quality or effective without doing hours of research.
This is why we wanted to craft an in-depth CBD snack guide to help you sift through all the online clutter, and give you the know-how about how to make your own tasty confections from the comfort of your own home.
Below you’ll find our top 10 CBD snack recipes, its nutritional information, and CBD content.
So, without further ado — let’s begin!
