A CBD gummy is a tasty treat that delivers many beneficial therapeutic properties. It is derived from hemp, a non-intoxicating form of cannabis, you receive none of the psychoactive effects of cannabis. CBD gummies are edible candies that contain cannabidiol (CBD) oil. They come in a wide variety of shapes, flavours, colours, and concentrations of CBD, one of many cannabinoids that benefit our central nervous system.

CBD gummies have recently attained wide popularity and are now the most sought-after cannabis component. CBD is the cannabinoid of choice for medical patients due to its many therapeutic properties which, among other things, include reducing the frequency and severity of seizures, treating depression, reducing inflammation, reducing nausea in cancer patients, and relieving stress.

Some CBD gummies do contain a small amount of THC. These are “full-spectrum” CBD gummies. Full-spectrum CBD gummies also include other cannabinoids, many of which are beneficial. Unfortunately, this means that there is some THC present, enough to show up. CBD isolate on the other hand includes no components other than CBD.

Now that we are free to explore the many beneficial properties of CBD, companies are developing many new interesting and delicious ways to dose CBD, like several kinds of edibles.

How Edibles Work

Edibles are consumed through ingestion and the cannabinoids made available through the digestive tract. Smoking cannabis introduces the cannabinoids into your bloodstream through the lungs and directly into the bloodstream, which affects the receptors in the brain a lot faster. The effects also wear off a lot faster. Ingestion of edibles requires much more time to take effect, as the cannabinoids must be digested and enter the bloodstream through the liver. The effect is, however, much more profound and long-lasting.

Cannabinoids have their effect mainly by interacting with specific receptors in the brain and body: the CB1 receptor, found on neurons and glial cells in various parts of the brain, and the CB2 receptor, found mainly in the body’s immune system.

When ingesting a cannabinoid-infused edible of any kind, it is important to take a little at a time to find out how significant the effect will be, because the digestive system metabolizes more cannabinoids than inhaling into the lungs.
