All kinds of products containing CBD are flooding the market right now, although one specific derivative is getting more attention than the rest. As the demand for the precious cannabidiol compound grows the interest in CBD gummies also grows rapidly. To better help you navigate and shop for these gems here are some valuable advice and information.
First, what are CBD gummies? They are simply candy infused with CBD. We can find them under many names and forms, but they all come down to the same concept. Some company labels them as CBD gummy bears others only as gummies some even named them gummy cubes etc.
Things to look out for when shopping for CBD Gummies
All gummies are different, the ingredients will vary from one brand to another and maybe even within one brand. Certain brands won't even infuse the gummies and will only coat or spray them with CBD oil or powder. Why infused gummies are better is simple. You get a lot more CBD in an infused gummy. You will pay less for a product that has only a thin outer layer of CBD but also will not get the full benefits of the compounds. Further, you probably will end up eating your gummies much faster to attempt to get results. On top of that, companies "coating," their gummies instead of infusing them will also mislabel their products to fool the costumers into buying. When purchasing gummies that have actually been infused you get what you paid for.
Always make sure you look at the ingredient list to ensure the quality of the sweets. Like any other CBD products, the provenance of the hemp and the extraction process is something you should look for. The best extraction method is called CO2 extraction and it results in the best quality of CBD on the market. Also search for the lab test to get the precise percentage of CBD in the bottle and ensure there is no harsh chemical, pesticides, or heavy metal in your product.
The gummies can contain from 5 to 15 and more CBD mg per gummy. If you aren't sure about what dosage you should ingest start with the minimum (usually one gummy). If you don't feel the effect of the CBD you can double the dose until you get to your sweet spot. Keep in mind that the gummies have to go through our digestive system before the CBD can enter our bloodstream, meaning it can take longer to take effect.
Why people are using them?
CBD gummies can be used simply as a sweeter and tastier option for CBD consumption. Although this method of absorption has been working very well with people suffering from chronic pain. As mentioned earlier its passage through our gut can extend the time before we get the relief. However, the effects will last longer as well. That said it is an interesting choice for people sealing with swelling, inflammation, or pain. Like a regular CBD tincture, CBD gummies will interfere with our serotonin receptors and provides us stress and anxiety relief as well.
From one person to another CBD substances can have different side effects. Even though many people seem to have the same recurrent feedback after using them, it is hard to predict exactly how you will feel when trying CBD products. A growing number of people are turning to CBD as a natural alternative for their over the counter prescriptions.
Are they safe?
Like all derivative of CBD, there is no risk of overdose or abuse with CBD Gummies. They are safe for consumption even if they have not been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) yet. Meaning, they are not meant to diagnose, treat, or cure any medical conditions. Many studies show they can reduce pain and other discomfort mentioning above but they are not intended to be eaten for pleasure.
