You’re here because you want to know more about CBD gummies. What are they? How do CBD gummies work? Are they right for you? The world of CBD products is huge and sometimes a little confusing. The good news is that we can help you make sense of it.
Gummies are a great place to begin your CBD journey, and they’re often combined with supplements like superfoods, antioxidants, and vitamins to help you tailor your CBD regimen to your lifestyle.
So, if you’re new to CBD and don’t know where to start, or if you’re a CBD pro and you’re interested in looking into how CBD gummies might work into your routine, you’ve come to the right place.
The CBD Basics
So, what is CBD and how does it work?
CBD is short for cannabidiol, a molecular compound found in the hemp plant. Your first question is probably, “will this get me high?” Nope. CBD is not psychoactive, and doesn’t cause a “high.”
So, what does it do then? CBD interacts with your endocannabinoid system, which is closely integrated with your central and peripheral nervous systems, as well as your gastrointestinal tract and immune system. CBD interacts with receptors throughout these systems for a number of therapeutic effects.
There are so many ways to try CBD, from tinctures and drinks to cookies and capsules. Why choose a gummy?
1. They Taste Great
We won’t lie. We love a yummy treat.
Some folks balk at the taste CBD in an oil or tincture form. It has a distinct smell and taste, in part thanks to terpenes. This taste has been described as “nutty” and “grassy,” and can be an acquired taste.
Many CBD fans (including your friendly author) enjoy the taste of CBD tinctures. But, for those who don’t, a gummy is a great option because it’s a sweet way to work CBD into your day while giving yourself a treat. They’re often lemon or berry flavored, and sweetened with ingredients like agave.
They are a sweet treat, but remember — they’re only for adults.
2. They Last Longer
CBD gummies are edibles. You may have heard that edibles need longer to take effect than methods like tinctures or vaping, and that’s true. An edible has to be processed by your digestive system and metabolized by your body before you begin to feel its effects. This can take from 20 minutes to two hours.
The upside to this is that edibles, like CBD gummies, also last longer. In fact, they can last somewhere between six and eight hours, depending on your size and metabolism.
This is especially helpful when you need your effects to last for the work day, a stressful flight or even just a chill weekend.
3. Easy Serving Amounts
Many people, especially those new to CBD, worry about how to know the right amount to take. It often takes some trial and error to find out exactly what works for you.
The great news about gummies is that you know exactly how much you’re getting in each one. For example, a serving of our gummies contains 50mg of high-quality, organic CBD, and all of our products come with a lab report.
This removes serving amount guesswork and also lets you know exactly what’s in your gummy and where the CBD came from.
How to Choose the Right Gummy for You
First, always look for quality. CBD quality is vital, because hemp is a highly absorbent plant. It soaks up nutrients in the soil just as easily as it does chemicals, pesticides and heavy metals. It’s crucial to choose CBD that comes from organic, pesticide-free sources.
Then the real fun begins. CBD gummies come in a wide variety of flavors and formulas geared to specific needs. It’s easy to find one just for you. Here are some common options.
The Straight-Up CBD Gummy
If you simply want to incorporate CBD into your daily routine in a delicious way without combining it with vitamins or supplements, the original CBD gummy is the choice for you. It delivers 50mg of broad spectrum CBD in every berry-flavored serving. Plus, it’s vegan and gluten-free, and has no artificial colors or sweeteners.
CBD gummies are often formulated with vitamins and supplements to make it easier to work CBD into a healthy lifestyle.
CBD gummies boosted with superfoods like Spirulina and Turmeric add anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties to your gummy. Turmeric (it’s the spice that makes curry yellow) is popular because of its active ingredient curcumin, which is an antioxidant. Spirulina is a form of algae packed with amino acids, minerals, calcium and B-complex vitamins.
CBD apple cider vinegar gummies make the most of the amazingly versatile health benefits of apple cider vinegar while incorporating vitamin B12 and pomegranate for more antioxidant and immunity-boosting benefits. Apple cider vinegar is hugely popular for a vast array of benefits, from detox and weight loss to sinus congestion and blood sugar management.
Multivitamins with CBD are the simplest way to work CBD into your healthy lifestyle. You can find multivitamin CBD gummies formulated specifically for women or men, with vitamins A, C, D3, E, B complex, calcium, zinc and more, in addition to 50mg of broad spectrum CBD.
When You Need a Little R&R
We’re all looking for better sleep and calmer evenings. In fact, that’s the reason many people seek out CBD, in addition to melatonin, chamomile and other supplements.
CBD gummies for sleep are an incredibly popular and effective CBD gummy choice. Boosted with melatonin, chamomile, passion flower and lemon balm, these gummies are designed for enhanced calm and restful sleep.
We hope this primer has helped you navigate why a CBD gummy might be great for your needs.
Whether you simply want a tasty way to incorporate CBD into your lifestyle, or you’d like to combine it with other powerful ingredients to boost your rest, your energy, or your overall health, there’s a chewy, delicious gummy out there for you.
