Gummy bears, gummy fruit bites, gummy sharks, gummy worms, gummy vitamins, gummy supplements… the various things that come in gummy form and the various forms that gummies can take sound like a litany from “Forrest Gump.” A lot of people have decided that CBD gummies are for them. Now the only question is — how many CBD gummies should I take?
CBD gummies are a fun and convenient way to get your daily dose of CBD. These fruit-flavored bites are infused with cannabidiol. But like everything else in the CBD marketplace, the quality of CBD gummies can run the spectrum. At the very low end, there are brands selling off-the-shelf gummy worms that have been dusted with CBD isolate — leading to a bitter-tasting and ineffective product. On the high end, you have brands like Cornbread Hemp, who are offering USDA organic, vegan, full spectrum CBD gummies.
CBD gummies are easy to dose—no measuring needed—and they are a portable and discrete way of taking CBD. Because of the familiarity of the gummy form and the great taste, CBD gummies can be a good choice for people trying CBD for the first time.
Cornbread Hemp’s gummies are made with our Whole Flower CBD oil, which is made from a flower-only extract of our USDA organic hemp flowers. To qualify as hemp, the plants must test at no more than 0.3 percent Tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, the main psychoactive compound that causes the “high” sensation.
That 0.3 percent is not enough THC to get you stoned, but it’s enough to increase CBD’s effectiveness through the “entourage effect,” according to anecdotal accounts and preliminary research. The “entourage effect” is when different compounds piggyback on each other to provide the best results for all of them. Cornbread Hemp’s gummies contain CBD, a legal amount of THC, and other minor cannabinoids.
Our CBD gummies, unlike many gummy products that rely on artificial flavoring and gelling agents, are 100 percent organic, meaning every ingredient that goes into the gummies is certified organic by the USDA. Cornbread Hemp’s gummies are “mixed berry” flavored, and by that we don’t mean some weird chemical additive that gives the gummies a semblance of a generic berry. We use blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries — all organic fruit that we process on-site!
Are you vegan or vegetarian? Don’t worry. Our vegan gummies are made with pectin and agar. Many other gummy producers use gelatin, which is made from animal byproducts. Pectin is a fiber found in fruits and vegetables that is often used to thicken jellies and jams. Agar is also a thickener, one that comes from seaweed.
Every ingredient that goes into Cornbread Hemp organic CBD gummies has been certified organic. Our hemp is sustainably sun-grown in Kentucky with crop rotations instead of fertilizers and chemical pesticides, and our oil has no preservatives or fillers.
First, a caveat: They taste so good that you need to be careful of overdoing it. When you’re eating gummy worms, having “just one more” is no big deal. But “just one more” of our CBD gummies can mean the difference between feeling good and feeling… weird. Remember, these aren’t candy—they’re supplements and should be kept out of reach of children and pets.
The proper dosage of CBD gummies for you depends on a lot of different factors including your weight, your metabolism, and tolerance. Our gummies contain 10 mg of CBD per gummy ,and there are 30 gummies per bottle. Most human studies of the effects of CBD start users at 20mg1 but your mileage may vary. We suggest starting at a baseline of one 10 mg gummy and increasing or decreasing that amount by 5mg, or half a gummy, depending on how you’re feeling. Rinse and repeat until you find the right dose for you.
In general, CBD products including gummies may take as long as two hours to take effect, so use your best judgement when adjusting doses. Increasing your dose will not cause the gummies to “kick in” right away. Like CBD capsules, CBD gummies must travel through your digestive system before being fully absorbed by the body’s blood stream.
Some gummy users may find that it can take up to two weeks of consistent use for the CBD to take effect.
- How many CBD gummies you take
- How often you take them
- Your body weight and water content
- Your metabolism
- Your diet
Those with higher body fat content will absorb and store CBD for longer in their body. If you exercise regularly and have a high metabolism, you should feel the CBD more quickly. On the flip side, it may wear off more quickly as well. If you have a slow metabolism, you’ll likely notice that it takes longer to feel your CBD coming on.3
Many people will find that CBD gummies is their preferred way of getting their regular dose of CBD. They’re tasty, they’re convenient, they’re discrete, and they take away a lot of the guesswork involved with dosing.
