Gummies, a playful use of CBD
Among the many ways to consume CBD, one of the most practical and certainly the most fun is in the form of candies.
Besides the fact that they are flavored with our favorite flavors, they are easy to dose.
In fact, they are a great introduction for people looking to try cannabidiol for the first time.
The term generally used for CBD sweets is “Gummies”, a word of English origin, which is frequently found in shops in France or on online sales sites.
Where oils and other cannabidiol capsules require a minimum of logistics to be swallowed, the gummy can be consumed at any time of the day and in complete discretion.
Easy to store and transport, it is appreciated for its sweet side which allows you to take advantage of the natural therapeutic benefits of CBD.
What are the types of gummies?
If you have ever been interested in gummies, you have probably noticed that the products, although similar, can vary in their composition.
These are indeed made from CBD oils, which fall into 3 categories: so-called “full-spectrum”, “broad-spectrum” or “isolate” oils.
These titles correspond to the compound contained in the oil, obtained after extraction.
“Full spectrum” oil is the most popular of the CBD oils.
It contains cannabidiol and other components of the plant, such as terpenes and THC, in compliance with the authorized standard (i.e. less than 0.2%).
"Broad spectrum" oil is similar, with cannabidiol, terpenes but no THC.
What motivates consumers towards this type of gummies is that the flavor is preserved thanks to terpenes, which include the aromatic molecules of the plant.
Terpenes also preserve what is commonly referred to as the “entourage effect”.
The entourage effect can be defined as the way in which the different hemp compounds interact to create the synergies that give the plant its specific properties.
studies show that plant components have stronger effects when they are used together rather than separately.
The third type of gummies is made with cannabidiol isolate.
As its name suggests, the isolate contains only one active molecule: CBD. It's a good option for those who don't want THC in their product, or who might be allergic to other compounds.
Gummies, treats... for grown-ups
Be aware that unflavoured hemp-derived products can taste vegetal, often earthy.
Some people like this flavor because it brings them closer to the natural experience, but it may put others off.
Gummies therefore represent a good compromise to benefit from the benefits of cannabidiol, while enjoying a sweet sweetness.
Of course, these candies should be kept out of the reach of children.
Most cannabidiol products are indeed designed for adults, and gummies are prohibited for those under 18 in France.
Manage your dosage
Now that you know the benefits of different types of gummies, you have to ask yourself how much you can consume.
Actually, it all depends on the concentration of CBD.
It is generally advised not to exceed a dose of 70mg of CBD per day, all products combined.
Unlike oils, for example, the dosage of which may seem complicated for novices, gummy is pre-dosed and therefore ready to be consumed.
For first use, we recommend taking the amount indicated on the packaging over a period of 4 to 6 weeks. It is indeed in the long term that you will be able to appreciate the effect, like food supplements for example. Depending on the effect felt, you can then adjust your consumption.
And rest assured, addiction does not exist in CBD.
Recent studies found that those who take it regularly tend to need less less cannabinoids to experience the same effects.
What are the effects?
Cannabidiol is in a general way ral well tolerated by consumers.
It interacts with your body, so its effect may vary from person to person.
Depending on your morphology, you can wait up to 2 hours to feel the full effects, i.e. the digestion time. It may seem long to you, but in return, you can enjoy it for 4 to 6 hours.
Generally, consumers report feeling relaxed, while others report that CBD helps them feel focused.
Numerous studieshave also demonstrated analgesic and therapeutic effects for anxiety. p>
