Frequently Asked Questions
What are CBD edibles?
CBD edibles and gummies are just what they sound like: edible treats infused with the magic of CBD! Unlike some other CBD products, with gummies and edibles, there is no need for combustion.

With an amazing variety of CBD edibles and gummies in stock, My Supply Co. encourages you to discover your favourite so you can enjoy it by yourself, or share the feeling of CBD-induced bliss with family and friends!
How do I consume a CBD edible?
The answer to this brain-buster of a question should be relatively obvious. You consume an edible by - you guessed it - eating it! Simply take your pick of our CBD edibles, chew and swallow. With a variety of flavours and potencies, My Supply Co. is guaranteed to have something for everyone. Like any product you eat, your body will process CBD edibles through its digestive system, something that can take anywhere from thirty minutes to several hours. In this way, the CBD is slowly introduced to your system, providing an even dose that is absorbed into your cannabinoid receptor system over time, providing you with long-lasting relief.
What are the benefits of CBD edibles?
Generally speaking, CBD edibles and CBD gummies promote a positive sense of calm and wellbeing that is markedly different from the sensation one experiences when using THC-infused products. Instead of feeling a psychotropic "high," consumers of CBD gummies and edibles experience more of a mellow mood uplift, often characterized by a positive, chill energy.
Ingesting CBD edibles and gummies also have the advantage of being long-lasting, providing hours of relaxed uplift. CBD edibles and gummies are easy to use, they don't risk any lung irritation, they are discreet, they have minimal side effects (if any), and they are 100% natural and non-intoxicating.
What are CBD edibles best used for?
Most people that use CBD edibles and gummies feel that they promote a general feeling of overall wellness. But these products also have specific uses, namely, to reduce pain and inflammation, to reduce anxiety, to help with the development of healthier, more natural sleep cycles, and more. CBD edibles and gummies can also be used to moderate the psychoactive effects of THC, which some people find uncomfortable.
Can I use CBD edibles for pain?
CBD products can be excellent pain-management tools and can provide relief for a number of different aches and pains. While CBD products are not intended to treat, cure or prevent any disease, they do have a positive effect on the body by interacting with the endocannabinoid system, which can do more than simply reduce pain, but also help regulate your appetite, promote better digestion, and reduce your stress. Pain relief is also associated with reduced swelling and inflammation, an effect CBD helps promote. And if you've had a hard workout and your muscles are sore? CBD can help. CBD edibles and gummies have also been shown to reduce back pain from poor posture or over-exertion, or general pain experienced as a result of injury or trauma.
Are CBD edibles good for sleep?
To understand if CBD can act as a sleep aid, it is important to understand some of the origins of bad sleep. One reason sleeping can be difficult can be related to feelings of anxiety, PTSD symptoms, or complications due to mental health disorders. In some cases, medication you're taking can lead to issues sleeping, and of course caffeine, loud noises or other environmental factors can prevent a restful night. So where does CBD come in?
While the science is still growing on the issue, it is generally understood that by reducing chronic pain, CBD edibles and products can help you have a better night's sleep. And of course, the general sense of relaxation and the related reduction in feelings of anxiety can also contribute to a better sleep.
To find out what CBD edibles and gummies work best for you, your best bet is to experiment and discover your favorite. However, timing is key. Because the effects of CBD kick in more slowly than other options (such as using a CBD vape pen), make sure to have an edible product at least 30 minutes prior to going to bed to make sure it has time to be properly absorbed by your body.
Are CBD edibles good for anxiety and stress?
Yes. Studies have shown that there is a link between the use of CBD edibles and gummies and a reduction in stress and anxiety. While the science continues to grow (and will only become more comprehensive over time), some studies have shown a link between CBD edibles and the brain’s response to the chemical serotonin.
Sometimes called "the happy chemical," serotonin contributes to a sense of wellbeing and happiness, is known to help regulate the body's sleep cycles, and plays a role in maintaining a balanced mood. Low serotonin levels, for example, have been linked to depression. A recent study showed that using CBD lowered the stress levels of participants during a simulated public speaking event, as measured from a physiological perspective by comparing before and after levels of systolic and diastolic blood pressure, as well as heart rate.
