What are the best CBD gummies?

Sick of CBD oil? Looking for a new way to take your CBD? CBD gummies could be for you!

What are CBD gummies?

Just like gummy vitamins are a fun way to take your vits, CBD gummies can be an easier-to-take and tastier and 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 are essentially the same thing.

CBD gummies usually contain hemp oil with high concentrations of CBD, just like CBD oil and CBD capsules. The only real difference is that you chew these supplements before you swallow them.

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.

What are the benefits of CBD gummies?

1. Easy to take

Swallowing whole pills can be difficult for some and downright impossible for others, so choosing a CBD gummy could help. Most of them taste good and generally ‘go down’ easier than capsules and tablets.

2. Convenient

Although we’re sure some of you out there can swallow capsules dry – no problem, most people need at least a swig of water to help them go down.

With gummies, you can take them on-the-go without needing to have a drink to wash them down. They’re also great for taking camping, on holiday, to work, etc. for the same reason.

3. Taste better

The taste of CBD oil is a dealbreaker for some, it is rather strong after all. On the other hand, CBD gummies usually come with a tasty, fruity flavour, so it feels more like a treat than a burden.

4. Easier to control

When you take a CBD gummy, you will know exactly how many mg (micrograms) of CBD you’re getting. Whereas, when you use CBD oil it can vary more depending on how you use the pipette.

How many CBD gummies should I eat?

The general recommendation for all CBD supplements is to start with a small dose and increase, rather than start off with the highest dose you can find!

Some gummies are one a day, some you take a few times a day. So, a good idea would be to start off with the recommended dose – or half  – 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 good safety profile by the World Health Organisation, documented in their Critical Review Report on CBD.

What are the best CBD gummies?

There are many things that make up a high-quality CBD gummy that you need to consider before buying, including:

  • Quality of the CBD
  • Dosage
  • Comes from a reliable source
  • Flavour and taste
  • It is very low or completely free of psychoactive THC

Here are some suggestions from the team here at H&B.
