We’re learning more about the benefits of CBD all the time:
Many people use products containing cannabidiol for their antioxidant or anti-inflammatory properties. Others use them to aid in getting a better night’s sleep or to manage the kind of daily stresses and strains we all face. Still, others use them to address anxiety or chronic pain.
But if you haven’t used any CBD products before, finding a nice, accessible place to start is going to be your major concern.
Step forward, CBD oil gummies.
What are CBD gummies?
CBD gummies look (and taste) just like the gummy candy most people remember from when they were a child. Or, if you’re like some of us, those sweet snacks we bought just last week.
CBD gummy sweets, however, contain a small amount of cannabidiol.
For people who want to experience or try out the benefits of CBD for themselves, they’re the ideal solution. The main reason being that they’re literally as easy to take as popping a tasty candy in your mouth.
Taking your daily dose of CBD orally in this fashion
is safe and doesn’t require any complicated (to the newcomer) equipment to do.
Frequently Asked Questions about CBD oil gummies
Are CBD gummies addictive?
No. The active ingredient in CBD gummies – cannabidiol – is not addictive. As long as you check that cannabidiol is the only active ingredient in your gummies, you’re in the clear.
Are gummies psychoactive?
Again, no. Cannabidiol does not produce any psychoactive effect. This means that CBD gummies can be used while you’re going about most of your daily activities. They are non-intoxicating and non-toxic.
It’s THC – TetraHydroCannabinol – which is the cannabinoid compound found in the cannabis plant which creates a psychoactive effect when it interacts with your body’s endocannabinoid system.
There shouldn’t be any of this in your edible CBD gummies. Always be sure to check the label and source your CBD products from a reputable supplier to make sure you’re getting exactly what you want to be getting.
Are CBD gummies legal?
This will very much depend on which state of the US or which country you live in. In some places, you can find CBD gummies in your corner store. In others, you need to order online.
That’s because CBD currently exists in something of a strange legal area:
-Hemp-derived CBD is legal at the federal level in the United States, meaning it’s legal in all 50 states. Some CBD products have recently even been approved by the FDA for use as an epilepsy medication.
However, CBD derived from cannabis is not legal everywhere. You’ll need to double-check:
- The specific laws of your state (you might need a medical card or other specific legal permission before you can start candy shopping).
- The label of the product you’re buying to see the CBD’s origin.
How many CBD gummies should I eat?
Working out the CBD gummies dosage which is right for you is nice and easy. In fact, this is another of the reasons why they’re such a good choice if you’re a beginner when it comes to CBD products.
If you’re buying a high-quality product (see more on this below), all you need to do is look at the label. For instance, K.I.N.D. CBD gummies contain a strict 25 mg per piece.
You can then start small and test to determine the right dosage for you. You’ll always know precisely how much you are taking at a time.
It’s also worth knowing that it’s difficult to overdose on CBD. Only at extremely high doses are you likely to experience mood swings or become drowsy.
How long do they take to work?
Gummies are sublingual. You absorb the active ingredients through the tissues under your tongue.
This means they skip going through your body’s digestive tract and can enter your bloodstream nice and quickly.
Where to buy CBD gummies
When you’re on the lookout for where to buy CBD gummies, it’s always worth checking a couple of things:
- Where does the CBD in your gummies come from?
- How much CBD is there in each of your gummies?
- Are there any other active ingredients? If so, what are they?
Most high-quality products should contain set amounts of CBD in each gummy and should be loud and proud about where they source the active ingredients in their products.
For example, all of the CBD gummies in the K.I.N.D. range are made from plants grown in American soil in an organic, natural way. The CBD is extracted from the plant using a proprietary method and each gummy contains set, labeled amounts of CBD. In the case of K.I.N.D., 25 mg per piece.
K.I.N.D. CBD edible gummies never contain any THC or other active ingredients, so you don’t need to worry about any addictive or psychoactive effect. There isn’t any.
Wherever you buy your CBD gummies from, simply keep these questions in mind and – even if you’ve never bought any before – you should be off to a good start in getting a good beginner-friendly product.
