Benefits of CBD Infused Gummies

Read our introduction to CBD Gummy Bears here. 

Let’s be honest: smoking CBD flower isn’t the most discrete thing in the world and CBD oil tinctures leave something to be desired in the taste department. 

Whether you’re a first-timer or a seasoned CBD user, you can’t go wrong with CBD infused gummies.

Still on the fence about CBD gummies? Check out the rest of this post. We’ll talk about using CBD infused gummies and:

  • THC concerns 
  • Dosing 
  • Slow release
  • Legality 

CBD Infused Gummies can be THC-free

CBD infused gummies are usually manufactured with CBD isolate meaning that all of the other cannabinoids like CBG, CBN, and most importantly THC are removed before infusion with the candy.

While some may notice the slight difference in feeling between using a product made with full-spectrum CBD oil and CBD isolate, CBD infused gummies made from isolate are a great way for folks interested in CBD but worried about drug tests, to get their feet wet.

It’s Candy!

CBD oil tinctures aren’t for everyone. While one of the quickest ways to consume cannabidiol, tinctures do taste earthy and sometimes bitter. One of the biggest benefits of CBD infused gummies is their taste— they’re candy!

While CBD itself does have an inherently bitter taste, gummies and candy that contain citric acid do a great job of covering up that bitter taste and make taking CBD, no matter the time of day, easy and painless.

CBD Infused Gummies are Easy to Dose

CBD infused gummies are one of the best and most accurate ways to dose yourself with CBD. 

While many enjoy smoking CBD flower or taking CBD oil tinctures, consistent dosing can be tricky to get right. CBD infused gummies, on the other hand, are homogenized and manufactured so that the dose of CBD is consistent from gummy to gummy.

CBD Infused Gummies are Slow-Release

CBD can be ingested in a number of ways:

  • Smoking and vaping – The fastest but smelliest way
  • Sublingual –  CBD oil under the tongue 
  • Topically – for targeted use on muscles and joints
  • Edible – slower, but longer lasting

CBD infused gummies fall into the last category. In edible form, CBD needs to be digested before it enters the bloodstream. That means that it takes longer for the user to feel any effect, but it will last longer than other forms of CBD use.

CBD Infused Gummies are Legal

Just like other hemp-derived CBD, CBD infused gummies are legal to produce and ship across state lines. 

This is because the 2018 Farm Bill defines legal hemp as “cannabis that contains less than 0.3% THC,” whereas any cannabis crop containing more than that limit is still considered marijuana.
