When thinking of healthy foods to add to your diet or guilt-free snacks, popcorns and cotton candy are certainly not at the top of the list. A few companies have decided to challenge this belief and create delicious treats infused with pure organic CBD. From now on, you can take in the beneficial properties of cannabidiol even while watching your favorite series.
CBD: A versatile component of Cannabis.
As a non-psychoactive component of the hemp plant, Cannabidiol (often abbreviated as CBD) has become increasingly popular among people suffering from headaches, joint pains, anxiety and many other common ailments. This substance does not cause secondary effects, and its versatility allows it to be added to almost any meal or drink. Nowadays it is possible to find CBD not only in gummies or vapes, but also in cookies, protein shakes and now even in Popcorn and Cotton Candies.
The best quality CBD is extracted from organic hemp plants. This ensures that no pesticides, chemicals or harmful components are present in the final product, leaving cannabidiol intact and ready to treat a wide range of health conditions. While this hemp component has been around for years, new legislation and an increased public awareness has encouraged many companies in the US and around the world to unleash their creativity and offer CBD-infused products of all sorts.
CBD Popcorn: The perfect companion for a movie night.
While no movie night is complete with a bowl of fresh popcorn, many of us cannot help thinking of the large amounts of fat present in these oil-popped treats. Popcorn on their own are great sources of fiber and antioxidants, but commercial popcorn is often full of artificial ingredients that are far from healthy.
Diamond CBD, a renowned cannabidiol company based in the United States, offers their “CBD Pops” as a great alternative to microwave popcorn. These snacks are infused with 100 milligrams of pure cannabidiol and can be ordered in eight different flavors: “Sweet & Salty”, “Movie Theatre”, “White Cheddar Cheese”, “Garlic Parmesan”, “Sea Salt”, Spicy”, Ranch” and “Caramel”. For those who are particularly worried about the fat present in regular popcorn, the “Skinny” version is the way to go, as it contains only 30 calories and 1 gram of total fat.
While cannabidiol is known for its effectiveness in reducing pain and relieving anxiety, popcorn by itself is very healthy when cooked properly. This snack is the only one containing 100% whole grain. The popcorn’s hull is full of polyphenols, which are natural antioxidants that help prevent cancer, heart diseases and other illnesses. On the other hand, the fluffy white part of the popcorn is full of fiber and rich in carbohydrates, which together work to maintain your bowel health, keep your cholesterol levels low and keep the sugar in your blood under control.
Popcorn’s reputation as an unhealthy snack comes more from the oil and butter that is commonly used to cook it than from popcorn itself. Diamond CBD’s “CBD Pops” are popped using only hot air, and later infused with cannabidiol from organic sources. From now on, make sure to have your CBD Popcorn ready for the next movie night.
CBD Cotton Candy: The fluffy snack that will keep you healthy and relaxed.
Whenever we go to a fair or an outdoors event, the cotton candy stand seems to attract both kids and adults. Apart from coloring your teeth, this sweet snack is perfect to share, breaking it into small pieces while walking around. However, just as popcorn, cotton candy is not exactly what comes to your mind when thinking of a healthy snack.
Within its huge range of cannabidiol-infused products, Diamond CBD’s Cotton Candy seems to be especially popular, as it is a low calorie treat that can be consumed at any time. Unlike traditional cotton candy, this fluffy snack contains very little sugar and less than 20 calories per serving. Furthermore, it is infused with 100 milligrams of pure organic cannabidiol from 100% industrial hemp, making it a great alternative to tinctures or CBD vapes.
While many people think that cannabidiol consumers have to take bitter oils or use vape devices, the fact is that CBD can be infused in almost anything, including cotton candy! Next time you crave for a sweet, there will be no need to feel guilty. Even though cotton candy might seem like a bomb of calories, the fact is that it contains more than ten times less sugar than -for example- a regular soft drink. When adding a 100 milligrams dose of cannabidiol to the equation, the fluffy snack turns out to be way healthier than you thought.
While cotton candy is certainly a source of carbohydrates, their effects dependon the amount you eat and your physical activity. Low-sugar versions are able to maintain the same delicious flavor but will not make you gain weight. Furthermore, this treat does not contain any cholesterol, sodium or fat.
If you decide to order some CBD Cotton Candy, Diamond CBD has nine different flavors you can choose from, including Watermelon, Cherry, Grape, Piña Colada, Orange, Green Apple and Blue Raspberry. All of them are infused with the same high-quality CBD from industrial hemp grown organically in the United States.
The Big Question: Are CBD Products Legal?
The short answer is yes! As cannabidiol is a non-psychoactive component of the hemp plant, in recent years it has benefited from new regulations such as the recently passed Farm Bill. This piece of legislation intends to differentiate between CBD and THC (or Tetrahydrocannabinol; the substance in hemp responsible for the “high” effect associated with marijuana).
While laws regulating CBD are sometimes different across state borders, federal laws consider that products with less than 0.3% of THC are legal to be consumed across the entire territory of the United States. Diamond CBD takes these regulations very seriously, and all of their products are subject to third-party laboratory testing to ensure their compliance with the 0.3% rule.
