CBD Gummies UK
What Are CBD Gummies?
CBD Gummies are surging in popularity across the UK. For two years we resisted supplying them due to the fact that they contain added sugar, which is generally not the healthiest option. We are a health and wellbeing-oriented brand so we try to stick with products that can have a positive impact on people's lives.
However, we understand that some people have a sweet tooth and find cannabidiol gummies to be a tasty and convenient form of consumption. Besides, a small amount of sugar added to an otherwise healthy lifestyle is unlikely to do any harm!
CBD gummies are just like traditional gummy sweets that you would have eaten as a kid, however they have the added benefit of being infused with cannabidiol.
Because the safety of CBD gummies for children has not been adequately determined, they are only recommended for adult use. However, this does not necessarily mean that they would do any harm to a child. CBD is generally regarded as a well-tolerated and safe compound.
Gummies tend to be a popular option for people hoping to boost their wellbeing while enjoying the pleasure of eating a sweet. Of course, these types of CBD edible are not viewed as health foods, more as treats.
What Is CBD?
CBD, which is the abbreviation of cannabidiol, is a cannabinoid that is abundant in the hemp plant. A cannabinoid is any compound that interacts with our endogenous cannabinoid system (ECS).
This system is present in all humans and nearly all animals and is a vital biological system responsible for regulating a wide range of bodily functions. Aspects such as sleep, stress, pain, mood and the immune system are intricately linked to the ECS.
Generally, CBD is extracted from the plant with methods such as CO2, ethanol or cold pressed extraction. And then this extract can be blended with a carrier oil to make CBD Hemp Oil, or infused into CBD sweets as with CBD gummies.
While CBD has gained popularity in recent years due to its wellbeing-boosting properties, hemp extracts containing CBD have actually been used by humans for most of our living history.
Do CBD Gummies Work?
While CBD edibles such as gummies are not regarded as the most effective way to consume CBD, they do still work. Some CBD will be absorbed through the mucous membranes in the mouth when chewing, then some more will be absorbed after swallowing.
One way to make the most of CBD jellies is to consume them as desert after a meal. As long as the meal contains a source of fat, then this fat is likely to significantly boost CBD absorption rates.
If you are looking for a product that is more readily absorbed by the body, check out our water soluble CBD or CBD patches. Both of these products have higher bioavailability than CBD Gummies.
Are Your CBD Gummies Vegan?
Yes! Our gummies are made without any animal-derived ingredients so they are perfectly suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
How Many CBD Gummies Should I Take?
The amount of cannabidiol sweets needed can vary significantly depending on factors such as body weight and metabolism. So by starting low (1-2 gummies per day), then gradually increasing if necessary, you can monitor how many you need for the desired results. If you want to limit your sugar intake you could combine the gummies with some CBD Oil to make up your daily CBD intake.
Everyone is different so it can take some trial and error to work out what works best for you.
Are CBD Gummies Legal In The UK?
Indeed, our broad spectrum CBD gummies do not contain any controlled substances such THC or CBN. Cannabidiol itself is not a controlled substance so our gummies are perfectly legal in the UK.
Edibles such as THC gummies are illegal in the UK, so be aware of websites selling these products.
Can I Give CBD Gummies To My Children?
We cannot legally recommend our products to anyone under the age of 18. CBD is a safe and well-tolerated compound but its important for us to stay above the law. If you want to give CBD to your kid then we recommend doing some research and making an informed decision.
Do CBD Gummies Show Up In A Drugs Test?
Our Gummies have had all illegal substances removed. However, every CBD product will contain minute traces of controlled cannabinoids. As long as you are not consuming a whole pack of gummies per day it is highly unlikely that gummies would cause you to fail a drugs test.
In some rare cases CBD products could cause a 'false positive' in a drugs test. But this can also happen by simply eating poppy seeds!
Can I Combine CBD Gummies With Other Products?
Sure! While its always best to use CBD products separately so that you can judge how they work for you, there is no harm in mixing and matching different products. Gummies can be combined with CBD Oil or any other product. Please note that the UK Food Standards Agency do not recommend exceeding 70mg of CBD per day.
