A CBD Gummy is a great option to get the benefits of CBD as they are individually dosed and they are a discreet way to consume CBD. There are many different products to choose from. Choosing a CBD product that fits in with your lifestyle is key. CBD Gummies are a great option as they are individually dosed, and they are a discreet way to consume CBD. They come in a wide variety to suit everyone; there are options for Vegans, Gluten-Free and Sugar-Free.
Top 3 Tips For Selecting the Right CBD Gummy
- The first and one of the most important things to look for is whether the gummies contain THC. If you are looking for a THC free gummy your best option would be to select one that is Broad Spectrum. The advantage over choosing an Isolate CBD gummy is that Broad Spectrum contains all the cannabinoids with no THC. Isolate just contains CBD only and has no other cannabinoids.
- The second thing to look for is whether there is a COA (Certificate of Analysis) or Lab Test so that you can see exactly which cannabinoids are in your product. With so many new products appearing each day it is really important to choose one that has been lab tested so that you know you are getting exactly what you are paid for.
- The third thing to look for is the dosage. If you are quite new to CBD we would recommend keeping the dosage under 50mg to start. Wait around an hour after consuming the gummies to see if you are feeling relief from pain or inflammation. Because the CBD in gummies has to travel through your digestive tract it can take 45 minutes – 1 hour to take effect.
For this reason we always recommend eating gummies an hour before bed if you are using them to get a better nights sleep. Full Spectrum gummies seem to work better for sleep as they contain 0.3% THC.
If you are looking for a product for anxiety we would always recommend a tincture as it is more fast acting. We also recommend using a Broad Spectrum product with no THC.
Full Spectrum also seems to work better for Pain and Inflammation. This is due in part to the Entourage Effect. To read more about this click here.
CBD Gummy Recommendations by Type
For Sleep and Pain:
Hempstrax Chili Peach rings are a great product for pain and sleep as they are full spectrum. Start out with one and then up the dosage to 2 if needed. They are precisely dosed and they contain 0.3% THC.
Always go for a Broad Spectrum product when treating anxiety. Hempstrax have a number of Broad Spectrum options. You may want to consider a tincture though as it has a much higher bioavailability and is faster acting.
CBD & CBG Tea
Another great option is a CBD tea. Hempstrax CBD tea is only available in Full Spectrum as it is made with CBD & CBG flower. It is available in many different flavors and a caffeine free Chamomile Lavender option.
Make your own CBD edibles
Many people are choosing to make their own edibles. This can be simply achieved by using CBD Isolate or Distillate. We have created an easy CBD Brownie recipe that is delicious and will provide 50mg per piece. A full gram of CBD Crumble costs $35 and is available in both Broad Spectrum & Full Spectrum.
The ingredients to make this recipe will cost around $8. You could use any recipe or add this ingredient to smoothies or salad dressings. In fact crumble or isolate can be used in any recipe, just remember to order the unflavored CBD Crumble.
With many different products to choose from it may be worth considering using a couple of different products. A tincture will be fast acting. A topical salve can be used to combat pain quickly and effectively. A cbd gummy is an enjoyable way of treating pain and can last longer than a tincture. Tea is another great way to treat pain.
Choose an option that fits well with your lifestyle. We find many of our older clients choose edibles as they are enjoyable and they give pain relief. We often advise customers purchasing for their older relatives to choose gummies.
