CBD Gummies 101
As CBD products expand around the world, it makes sense that someone would take the obvious step to create CBD gummies. CBD gummies are sweet, chewy edibles infused with CBD that are designed to be chewed and swallowed.
So what is CBD? Cannabidiol (CBD) is a cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. CBD interacts with an internal system known as the endocannabinoid system (ES). It’s the ES that is responsible for maintaining internal harmony and balance in our bodies. The ES consists of receptors and cannabinoids such as CBD bind with these receptors creating a chemical reaction.
Getting Started with CBD Gummies
If you have never had any gummies or edibles before, here are some great tips!
Understanding what to expect
Remember, CBD gummies contain either trace or small levels of THC, so you’re not going to get high. Most people report an increased feeling of happiness and relaxation. Don’t expect to find yourself bombed out and lying on the couch.
You can get the most out of CBD gummies by using them daily. When you take CBD regularly, it builds up over time to keep your endocannabinoid system in top condition.
Start slowly with CBD gummies
When you use gummies for the first time, follow the instructions recommended on the packaging. Everyone is different, and everyone will react differently the first time they try CBD gummies. If you feel like the effects weren’t strong enough, then try increasing the dosage slowly. If they were too strong, then decrease the dosage.
Choosing the size and potency to suit you
The great thing about CBD gummies is it’s easy to eat one or two or to cut a gummy in half if one gummy is too much. Everyone is different, and everybody reacts differently to CBD.
Finding a high-quality CBD gummy
When you’re choosing a CBD gummy, ensure that the company displays all its laboratory results. At Koi CBD, we believe in the quality of our CBD products and aren't afraid to let everyone have access to the lab results that back this up.
Full-spectrum vs broad-spectrum gummies
As you look into gummies, you'll find that there are two types: full-spectrum and broad-spectrum.
Full-spectrum CBD gummies contain all the beneficial cannabinoids, terpenes, and other nutritious compounds native to hemp for a stronger entourage effect.
A broad-spectrum CBD product also offers all the entourage benefits of all terpenes and cannabinoids, except for detectable amounts of THC. This could be the best option if you have concerns about using CBD and drug testing.
Some gummies on the market have CBD isolate, which means they contain only the CBD compound itself and none of the other beneficial compounds and terpenes in hemp.
Always speak with your doctor
While CBD offers a slew of wellness benefits, the FDA has not approved CBD for medical purposes. Always speak with your doctor or health care professional before ceasing any medications or starting new ones.
CBD has shown to have very few side effects, but if you’re considering switching from a pharmaceutical medication to CBD gummies, then it’s always a good idea to speak with your doctor first.
How to Take CBD Gummies
A common question those new to CBD gummies have is-- How many CBD gummies should I take? You may want to take one or more CBD gummies per day, depending on the potency of the gummy and your goal with CBD. That said, there's no universal serving for everyone.
Keep in mind that you can take more than one gummy at a time to increase your CBD milligram serving. You can also cut CBD gummies in half for a smaller serving of CBD.
So how do you take a CBD gummy? Simply pop a single gummy in your mouth, chew and swallow.
Most people prefer to take their gummies in the morning as part of their daily wellness regimen. You may find that an afternoon serving works better. CBD gummies are also an enjoyable way to promote balance in the evenings before bed. While CBD itself doesn't have sedative effects, it can promote better sleep by keeping your body in homeostasis.
CBD Gummies FAQ
Do CBD gummies work the first time?
You will start to experience the benefits of CBD after taking CBD gummies for the first time. Once absorbed, CBD interacts with your body's endocannabinoid system to promote better balance.
For best results, take CBD gummies daily to keep your endocannabinoid system running optimally. Over time, you may notice the benefits of a well-nourished endocannabinoid system, including sleeping better at night and feeling better during the day.
How long do CBD gummies take to start working?
As an edible product, the effects of CBD gummies can take up to 60 minutes. After chewing and swallowing a CBD gummy, the CBD and other active compounds are eventually absorbed and delivered to your body through digestion. This process can take roughly 30 to 60 minutes.
How do I choose a CBD gummy?
When deciding on a CBD gummy to try, choose one made by a trusted and respected manufacturer. Look to see whether the company makes available third-party lab results to ensure the gummy is safe and high-quality.
How do I take CBD gummies?
CBD gummies are taken in the same way food is. Chew and swallow a gummy at least once per day. You can use multiple CBD gummies per day depending on your needs and preferences. You may also want to take one in the morning and one in the evening to help keep regular levels of CBD in your body.
