Pure CBD Chocolates Decadently Crafted

Glacé edibles were formulated with the idea of elegance in mind. Autumn McCray, the co-founder and CEO of Libra Wellness (also know as the creators of Glacé), said her mission for medicated edibles varies from the industry standards. “Our goal from the beginning was to make edibles that tasted just as good as their non-infused counterparts,” says McCray. What this means for the consumer is a medicated experience, without the “high” that is associated with most edibles. Due to the nonexistent THC content, it is the undertaking of Glacé to create a rich, creamy, medicated-flavor-free product. Glacé prides themselves on producing a luxuriously delectable experience; chocolate bonbons that have a fragile dark chocolate shell encompassing a slightly liquid, highly CBD infused chocolate center — all dusted in gold. A beautiful presentation for a pleasantly palatable medical encounter without any hemp odor or taste.
Edibles, as a means of CBD consumption varies from other methods in that it is ingested orally and digested, where it is processed down prior to entering the user’s bloodstream. Due to this process, consuming the chocolate usually results in a 40 minute delay for effect, however edibles are preferred by some patients because ingested cannabidiol effects typically last 2 to 4 hours longer than smoking or vaping. Some patients will even argue that ingesting the CBD directly has a stronger therapeutic pain management potential because of the longevity of the effects.
Not only is pain management one of the spotlights for CBD edibles, but there has been thousands of published studies of the effects of cannabiniods in relieving other ailments such as anxiety, epilepsy, inflammation, skin disorders, digestive disorders, and even cancer fighting properties. CBD has been found to bind directly to protein receptor TRPV-1 which is responsible for regulating body temperature, pain perception, and inflammation. Cannabidiol has been researched to inhibit ID-1 gene which is strongly tied to certain cancers such as brain, breast, lung, as well as ovarian and pancreatic cancers. Patients suffering from some of these intensely debilitating disorders, or those too weak to, or are sensitive to, the harshness of smoking/vaping are partial to this form of consumption. Orally consuming the CBD edibles can curb nausea that plague many users, and can provide an additional calorie increase, extra nutrients, and in the case of chocolate, antioxidant boost.
Glacé and The Weekend Box CBD is delighted to provide the ailing consumer with the richest, highest quality CBD edible available. An edible with a formulaic taste that can easily be compared to any high-end retailing chocolatier. Our plan is to provide the most soul-soothing experience, mentally, physically, and most importantly, palatably.
