Let’s be honest: smoking CBD flower leaves a little to be desired. It isn’t discrete; the effects fade quickly, and it can lead to a failed drug test. CBD oils, too, aren’t the best for everyone. Whether you’re new to CBD or have been using it for years, you can’t go wrong with CBD-infused gummies.

In this post, we’ll explore the following 5 advantages of CBD gummies over other consumption methods,

  • CBD Gummies Can Be THC Free
  • CBD Gummies Taste Better
  • Ease of Dosing
  • Slow Release
  • They’re Legal

What Are CBD-Infused Gummies?

CBD-infused gummies, or CBD gummies for short, are gummy chews that are infused with any amount of cannabidiol.

Cannabidiol is a cannabinoid produced by the hemp plant. Many people who use CBD do so to help with:

  • Sleep Quality
  • Pain Management
  • Inflammation Management
  • Appetite Stimulation
  • And more…

5 Benefits Of CBD-Infused Gummies

They Can Be THC Free!

Unless designated full-spectrum CBD gummies, most gummies that you’ll find on the market contain THC-free CBD. There are a few reasons why most manufacturers choose to make CBD gummies without THC, like,

  1. Ease of use – CBD isolate is easier to consistently infuse into gummies than other hemp extracts. That’s because CBD isolate is usually between 99% and 100% CBD.
  2. Taste – CBD isolate doesn’t taste as hemp-y as full-spectrum hemp extracts, making it easier to mask with flavor.
  3. Water solubility – With some new cannabis technology, we can make CBD isolate water soluble, making it exponentially easier to work with in the kitchen.
  4. Accessibility – Because CBD isolate contains no THC, that means that more people can buy them and experience their benefits. By making CBD gummies with THC, we unfortunately alienate customers who can’t use THC.

They’re Candy

Not everyone enjoys CBD oil tinctures, and that’s okay. Unless you find flavored options, CBD oils usually taste earthy and sometimes bitter. One of the biggest leg ups that CBD-infused gummies is their taste. They’re literally candy and usually taste so good, you have to remind yourself you’re eating CBD.

CBD does have an inherently bitter taste, but centuries of food science have taught us to cover that up with natural flavors and citric acid. That’s why most CBD gummies you’ll find on the market will taste like citrus fruits!

Easier To Dose

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

CBD oil tinctures allow for some user error regarding dose. That margin for error only grows as the concentration of oil grows, too. CBD hemp flower is also difficult to dose out due to the natural variation in hemp flower potency.

When we infuse CBD into gummies (or any edible for that matter) consistent dosing is a must. Usually manufacturers emulsify CBD extract into oil so that they can evenly distribute it in their recipe. When the extract is evenly distributed that also means that our dosing will be consistent from gummy to gummy.

They’re Slow-Release

You can ingest CBD in any number of ways:

  • Inhalation – Inhaling vaporized CBD has one of the fastest onset times. That’s because the vaporized cannabinoids enter your bloodstream through your lungs within seconds of your first puff. One significant downside to consider is the odor.
  • Sublingual – Sublingual CBD application requires you to place CBD oil under your tongue. It then enters your bloodstream via the thin membrane under your tongue.
  • Topically – You can also apply CBD topically (to your skin) for rapid relief in a targeted area. Depending on the product, it may also help moisturize your skin or help soothe aching muscles and joints.
  • Edible – A CBD edible is any food infused with cannabidiol. Edibles have the slowest onset time, but provide the longest-lasting effects of any ingestion method.

CBD-infused gummies fall into this last category. The CBD inside needs to reach our digestive system before it enters our bloodstream. That also means that the benefits last that much longer. Knowing this, we can design CBD gummies specifically to provide all-day relief or to help users get a good night’s sleep.

They’re Legal

Farm Bill-compliant CBD-infused gummies are federally legal to produce and ship across state lines.

Unfortunately, we can’t say the same about CBD hemp flower, and some CBD oils. Some states have taken it upon themselves to ban hemp flower because of its similarity to marijuana. Other states have decided to restrict the production of full-spectrum CBD oil due to THC content concerns. CBD gummies made with isolate face no restrictions as of this writing.
