It truly seems that no matter where you go there is a CBD-infused something is just around the corner. With CBD taking the nation by storm, companies have been incorporating CBD into their products. From beauty products to foods and drinks to pet treats, it seems everything has a CBD-version.

One area of CBD-infused products that has received a lot of interest is the food category. Many foods and candies are being infused with CBD to offer buyers a little extra something. Foods and candies like pretzels, honey, gummy bears, sour strips, jelly beans, and much more!

The list of CBD-infused foods continues to grow. Recently, one of the most famous cookie brands, Oreo might be adding a CBD edition to their product line. As if Oreos couldn't get any better.

The Oreo brand is owned by a company called Mondelez. The CEO of Mondelez is the one behind the bold move. 

Ganjaprenuer reported that “Dirk Van de Put, CEO of Mondelez (the parent company behind the Oreos brand), said the company is “getting ready” to develop CBD-infused snacks, but indicated that the company doesn’t have plans to add it to its “family brands” such as Oreo, Nilla Wafer, Nutter Butter, or Cadbury chocolates.

Why Has CBD Become Popular?

There are many reasons for CBD’s popularity. Some of the main reasons are due to it’s health and wellness properties and the fact it doesn’t get you “high” like THC.

Many people have reported that CBD has helped with certain ailments and symptoms such as stress, anxiety, insomnia, quitting smoking, arthritis, and the list goes on. CBD comes in an array of forms like flowers, concentrates, edibles and beverages, lotions and creams. This has made CBD ideal for many demographics. For example, lotions and creams containing CBD are great for people who suffer from arthritis. CBD is claimed to have anti-inflammatory properties which helps alleviate the pain from arthritis.

CBD’s described health benefits are one of the main reasons large retail chains like Lucky’s, CVS, Walgreens, and many others have started to carry CBD products.

What is CBD?

In an article by The Sleep Help Institute, they explain that “Within the Cannabis plant are hundreds of different types of individual chemical compounds. Over 100 of these have been identified and classified as cannabinoids including CBD. Not all cannabinoids have the same effects when ingested, which is why CBD is discussed separately from the more famous cannabinoid THC.

CBD and some other cannabinoids, known as endogenous cannabinoids or endocannabinoids, are also naturally produced by the body as part of the endocannabinoid system (ECS). Receptors in the body for cannabinoids appear to be most related to the neurological and immune systems.

In the body, there are two key receptors for cannabinoids: CB1 and CB2. Cannabinoids can activate these receptors, which is what happens when someone experience a high from THC -- it’s the CB1 receptor being activated by that cannabinoid. CBD does not activate these receptors to the same extent, which is why it can have signaling effects in the body but does not produce a “high” or level of intoxication.”
