If you’re wondering what to know about CBD gummies, we’ve got you covered. In this article, we will lay out everything you need to know about CBD gummies and answer some of the most frequently asked questions.
What To Know About CBD Gummies
CBD gummies fall under the category of edibles. They’re sweet (or sour), chewy candies infused with CBD and often other cannabis compounds. CBD is one of the most popular cannabinoids. It produces its effects by interacting with your endocannabinoid system—a cell-signaling communication system that plays a vital role in the regulation of various processes and functions in the body, such as sleep, mood, inflammatory response and pain, metabolism, and memory.
The effects experienced when taking gummies is similar to products like CBD oils or tinctures, but the time it takes to feel the effects, as well as the duration of effects, are different. In general, gummies take a bit longer to kick in compared to sublingual consumption of CBD, but the effects are likely to last longer. You can expect it to take anywhere from 45 minutes to two hours to initially feel the onset, and the effects may last anywhere from six to 12 hours.
Types of CBD Gummies
Like most other edibles and CBD products, CBD gummies come in three different forms:
Broad-spectrum CBD is very similar to full-spectrum but is further refined to remove the THC (though trace amounts are possible).
CBD isolate is pure, isolated CBD, meaning it does not retain any additional cannabinoids, terpenes, or flavonoids.
