CBD gummies are one of the latest trends amongst CBD-loving community, both avid users and beginners alike. The product shook the whole market right in its center. With its several therapeutic effects (read more) and uses, many considered switching to the product! Gummies are also one of the popular forms of CBD-based products and are available in local and online hemp stores.
Does it sound unconvincing to you? Well, in this article, I will list down five reasons why switching to the gummies is a great idea and delve deeper into each rabbit hole. But first, let us talk about the main stars of the topic: CBDs and gummy candies!
CBD As We Know It!
The rise of CBD products has been reaching people’s radars in recent years. Because of it, many new users are eager to try out the trend and would love to know all about it. So right now, let us tackle all about CBD and the different products.
CBD is a short abbreviation for cannabidiol, which is found in the cannabis plant family. It is one of the 113 known cannabinoids. CBDs work similarly to THC, except it does not contain any addictive properties, but people could still grow dependent on it. The THC is another cannabinoid that exhibits strong effects on a person’s nervous system.
Difference Between Hemp And Marijuana
Hemp is part of the cannabis family that has an abundant number of cannabidiols. Marijuana, on the other hand, is also part of the cannabis family that is composed of an abundant number of THCs. THC is responsible for the euphoric feeling or “high” after inhaling the smoke or taking it orally. Despite having similar effects to THC, CBDs do not make a person feel euphoria after consumption.
Because of the non-psychoactive effects of cannabidiol, manufacturers make products around it. However, the 2018 Farm Bill (link: https://www.brookings.edu/blog/fixgov/2018/12/14/the-farm-bill-hemp-and-cbd-explainer/) changed the game a bit by allowing manufacturers to add a legal amount of THC in products. THC is allowed to be used in products as long as it only contains 0.3% or lower.
How Cannabidiol Work In Our Body
Unfortunately, we do not have a formal study about the effects of CBD on our body to a full extent. But scientists DO know that cannabidiol and other cannabinoids bind with the endocannabinoid receptors found in our central and peripheral nervous system and deliver its effects. Endocannabinoids are cannabinoids that exist and are produced by our bodies.
So, why do we have to consume CBDs when cannabinoids are existing in our body? First of all, ingesting extrinsic cannabinoids is optional, and you do not have to take them. Secondly, when you use them, it allows your body to enjoy its several benefits whenever you want or need them (e.g. during stressful situations).
To tell you frankly, CBD gummies are your typical gelatin candy infused with the phytocannabinoid. It can either be sprayed with CBD oils or bathe in powder (like CBD isolates). While you can buy them as gummies at online stores like Cheefbotanicals gummies or retailers, you can also make them yourself at home! Gummies are made from animal fats, bones, and ligaments, but luckily, the stores have gummies for vegans available.
Reasons Why Switching To CBD Gummies Is A Great Idea
1. Lesser Side-Effects
The gummies work similarly to other cannabidiol products like oils, paste, vape juices, etc. However, it has fewer side effects than the others. These side-effects are dry mouth and a significant decrease in metabolizing medicines.
Dry mouth happens no matter which product form you use because the cannabidiol itself affects the part of your brain that releases saliva. This effect is only temporary; you would be able to salivate after the effects wore off. If you hate the feeling of dry mouth, drink water, chew ice, or brush your teeth to minimize the dryness.
There is a decrease in liver function after ingesting CBDs. As a result, there is a decrease in the metabolism of medicines. The liver is responsible for detoxifying the medicines you take. Be sure not to take meds while taking in the product at the same time.
2. CBD In Disguise!
One could be deceived by the looks of gummy bears in a jar, making them seem nothing but candy. That is what made CBD gummies special; you can eat them without anyone noticing it contains cannabinoids. Well, the candy in itself is small enough that you could cover it with your hand. Nonetheless, the disguise helps in releasing you from suspicious looks. Do not show or give them to children.
3. Easiest Way To Measure Dose
The dosing is one of the best features of this product; it is as easy as one two three! I am not kidding; dosing is identified by each gummy you eat. For example, there is 5 milligram (mg) per gummy, and you need to eat 30 mg of it; you eat until it adds up to 30 mg. Easy, right?
4. Taste Good, Feel Good
CBDs have these “earthy” tastes that many people would find unpleasant. With the gummies, you can enjoy the effects of the product while lavishing on the sweet taste of the candy! Sugar does help stimulate the brain to think and be productive, so having it as candy is a bonus.
5. It Has Several Benefits
Different forms have similar benefits because of the CBDs they contain. For gummies, however, many varieties have amplified effects on a specific benefit. Here is a shortlist of those benefits amplified:
- Cancer prevention
- Aids in Digestions
- Improve sleep
- Pain relief
