What are the best CBD gummies?

What are CBD gummies?

Just like gummy vitamins are a fun way to take your vits, CBD gummies can be an easier, tastier way to enjoy CBD.

They provide a great option for those of you that want to enjoy CBD, but don’t like to swallow capsules or can’t stand the taste of the oil – we get it, they have a pretty strong flavour!

Are CBD gummies as good as CBD oil?

Yes, they can be, as they both contain the same key ingredient - CBD.

CBD gummies usually contain hemp oil with high concentrations of CBD, just like CBD oil and CBD capsules. One main difference is that you chew these supplements before you swallow them, therefore the way that the body absorbs them is slightly different. 

Like CBD oils or CBD capsules, you can choose the strength of your CBD gummies and control the dose by choosing how many you consume, ensuring you are within the acceptable daily limit of 10mg per day (for a 70kg for an adult).

What are the benefits of CBD gummies?

1. Easy to take 
 2. Convenient 
 3. Taste better 
 4. Easier to control

How many CBD gummies should I eat? 

The general recommendation for all CBD supplements is to start with a dose that is smaller than 10mg, rather than start off with the highest dose you can find! Then, feel free to increase it bit by bit over a period of time, until you find the best dose for you – making sure to never exceed the safe recommended daily allowance stated on the product label. If you want to calculate this for yourself, multiply your body weight in kg by 0.15 (e.g. 60kg x 0.15 = 9 mg per day.)

Some gummies are one a day, some you take a few times a day. So, a good idea would be to start off with half the recommended dose – and then if over time you feel like you would like to try a stronger dose, finish the packet and buy a stronger concentration the next time.

Can CBD gummies harm you?

CBD products are generally considered to be well tolerated and have a good safety profile by the World Health Organisation, documented in their Critical Review Report on CBD.1

CBD is not suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding women, children, prospective parents trying for a baby or by people taking medication. Before using any CBD products, it’s also best to check with your GP that they are safe for you to use and to make sure they don’t interact with any medication being taken.
