Most people are familiar with the benefits of CBD gummies, but there’s a lot you need to know about these products before you buy. The label on a bottle of gummies can be overwhelming and confusing, but five key things should always be listed on the label:
- Is CBD Legal?
- What is the source of CBD?
- What is the quality of CBD?
- Does it contain THC & how much?
- How much to use, and how often should you use it?
The percentage of THC contained in each product (if it exists), including all other cannabinoids such as CBN, CBG, etc.
Lack of harmful ingredients such as artificial colors or sweeteners like high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) and preservatives like sodium benzoate/sorbate, which may cause cancer, according to studies conducted by the National Toxicology Program (NTP). It is especially important if you have children who might eat this product regularly and, therefore, could be more susceptible to developing certain diseases than adults who consume only occasionally.
You should also pay attention to how long it takes for the CBD gummies to reach your home after ordering them online from an online seller or dispensary because some companies will ship their products via ground shipping instead of air freight which causes delays due to weather conditions or even theft during transit which could result in lost packages or worse yet—fake ones! It’s best not to take any chances when buying something that contains your medicine, so read carefully before placing your order!
Is CBD legal?
A common misconception about CBD is that it’s illegal, like marijuana. CBD is legal in all 50 states and is derived from hemp, not marijuana. CBD has been shown to have many health benefits and has been used for thousands of years.
What is the source of CBD?
CBD is extracted from the cannabis plant. What is the difference between hemp and marijuana? Hemp contains less than 0.3% of THC, the ingredient that gives you a high when you smoke it. Marijuana has more than this THC and can be grown to create recreational or medicinal products like CBD gummies and edibles. In contrast, hemp is better suited for industrial uses like textiles and rope because of its hardiness.
The most common way to produce CBD oil is through CO2 extraction, which involves placing hemp plants under high pressure and heat that pulls out all their essential oils, including those containing CBD. This method ensures that no contaminants are left behind in your product while maintaining consistent quality across batches.
There are three main types of cannabidiol (CBD): full spectrum (which includes all cannabinoids), isolate (which contains only CBD), and synthetic (aka manufactured). Full range means additional plant parts added for extra benefits—like terpenes—but these may not be as pure since other compounds may also be present from pesticides used during cultivation or processing equipment used during extraction. Isolates have been stripped down, so there’s nothing else besides just one type being sold, but they’re usually higher priced per milligram consumed. Synthetics are what pharmaceutical companies make by synthesizing chemicals similar enough structurally so as not to get flagged by drug tests but won’t give patients any health benefits.
What is the quality of CBD?
The quality of CBD is the most crucial factor in determining the effectiveness of your gummies. You have to make sure you’re purchasing from a reputable source and check their website for information about the origin of their CBD oil.
There are two ways to extract CBD: CO2 extraction and ethanol extraction. CO2 extraction uses carbon dioxide under high pressure to extract cannabinoids from plant material while preserving more terpenes (the chemical compounds responsible for giving plants their smell). Ethanol extraction involves soaking cannabis flowers in alcohol until they dissolve into an oily substance called hash oil which contains THC and other cannabinoids like CBD and CBN.
Does it contain THC & how much?
By looking at their label, you should be able to tell if the hemp gummies contain THC. If they do, you’ll see they have a THC percentage. You can also look up the ingredients on another site like Wikipedia to see if there are any other sources of information about them (like what kind of caffeine source is used).
When people take gummies with THC, the effects include relaxation and pain relief without feeling “high,” as alcohol or marijuana does. It might work well if you need help sleeping or relaxing while functioning during your day (if that makes sense!). But there is potential for adverse side effects like anxiety and paranoia when taking too much, so check out the label before using! While it’s hard for us technically-challenged people to know precisely how much THC is in our CBD gummies, we can ask ourselves how much we want and why—and then decide whether or not we’re okay with that amount.
How much to use, and how often should you use it?
It is important to note that the dosage of CBD gummies is still being determined. The recommended dose may be adjusted according to how much your body can handle.
According to specialists, if you feel the product is not working as well as it should, increase the dosage and see if it helps improve your condition. On the other hand, if you feel that taking higher doses of CBD gummies than recommended leads to adverse effects or unwanted side effects, then cut down on the number of gummies you take per day until you find a comfortable level for yourself.
We hope this article has helped you understand what to look for on the label of CBD gummies. It’s essential to remember that many different types of gummies are available, each with its own set of benefits and drawbacks regarding quality assurance.
