CBD Gummies UK
What Are CBD Gummies?
CBD Gummies are one of the most popular ways to take CBD in the UK. This is mainly due to the delicious taste and high convenience that they have when compared to other CBD products such as CBD oils.
A Cannabidiol gummy is essentially just like a traditional gummy sweet that you would have eaten as a kid, however, it has 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.
Consuming CBD gummies tends to be a popular option for people aiming to get their daily dose of CBD and support their well-being, while enjoying the pleasure of eating a sweet.
What is CBD?
CBD, which is the abbreviation of cannabidiol, is a cannabinoid that is abundant in the hemp plant and has become very popular due to its potential health benefits.
A cannabinoid is any compound that interacts with our endocannabinoid system (ECS), and hemp is a form of cannabis sativa with very low levels of THC. There are over 120 cannabinoids that can be found in the cannabis plant!
This ECS is present in humans, 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 well-being-boosting properties, hemp extracts containing CBD have actually been used by humans for most of our living history.
Unlike THC, the compound renowned for getting people high, CBD alone does not have any intoxicating effects and is used for health and well-being purposes.
Do CBD Gummies Work?
While CBD edibles such as gummies and chocolates are not always 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 while chewing, then some more will be absorbed after swallowing.
One way to make the most of CBD jellies is to consume them as dessert 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 without the need to time around mealtimes, check out our water-soluble CBD or CBD patches. Both of these products have higher bioavailability than CBD Gummies.
What Are Full Spectrum CBD Gummies?
Full spectrum CBD gummies are gummies that have been infused with a full spectrum hemp extracts.
These extracts not only contain CBD, but also traces of other cannabinoids and every other compound that is naturally produced by the hemp plant. Many of these additional compounds have potential health benefits and may work synergistically to improve the overall efficacy of the product.
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 Gummies Should I Take?
The amount of cannabidiol sweets needed can vary significantly depending on factors such as body weight and metabolism.
With effective CBD edibles, one should always start low (1-2 gummies per day), then gradually increase if necessary, you can then monitor and gauge how many you need for the desired results.
Everyone is different so it can take some trial and error to work out what works may provide the best potential health benefits.
Are CBD Gummies Legal In The UK?
Cannabidiol itself is not a controlled substance in the UK, so as long as CBD supplements such as gummies contain no more than 1mg of THC or CBN per container, they are legal in the UK
While our CBD gummies are made using a full spectrum oil, the levels of THC in the final product are within the legal limits.
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 it is important for us to follow the current regulations. If you want to give CBD to your kid then we recommend doing some research on your end, talking with a doctor, and making an informed decision.
Do CBD Gummies Show Up In A Drugs Test?
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 our 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 with other high-quality CBD products. Gummies can be combined with CBD Oil, CBD creams, or any other product to further compliment the benefits of CBD.
Please note that the UK Food Standards Agency do not recommend exceeding 70mg of CBD per day.
How Much CBD Can I Take Per Day?
A review from the world health organisation found that CBD is safe and well tolerated for most people. However, in the UK the Food Standards Agency does not recommend consuming more than 70mg of CBD per day.
It's important to consult with a doctor before using CBD to ensure that is right for your personal circumstances. This is especially important if you are taking any medicine as CBD interacts with many different medications. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should avoid taking CBD.
The exact CBD dosage needed for optimal results may vary significantly from person to person.
Where Is The Best Place To Buy CBD Gummies?
Cannabidiol gummies can now be purchased almost anywhere, whether that be in supermarkets, corner shops or online. However, it's important to look for high quality CBD gummies to ensure that you get what you pay for.
At BROWN'S CBD, we offer CBD gummies that are lab tested, sugar-free, full-spectrum, vegan-friendly and made with organically-grown hemp that contain 10mg of CBD per gummy. While we are biased, we believe that we have the best CBD gummies in the UK!
Cheaper CBD gummies are usually made with pure CBD isolate, which is normally less effective than full-spectrum extracts that contain a wide range of compounds.
What Flavours Do CBD Gummies Come In?
As with any other sweet, CBD gummies can be found in almost any flavour imaginable, and there are hundreds of different fruity flavours available here in the UK.
Our CBD gummies have a Canna-lime flavour, which is due to the natural cannabis flavour of the full spectrum oi, and the natural lime flavouring.
Can CBD Gummies Help With Anxiety?
While many people claim to use CBD gummies to help support anxiety, as a food supplement/cosmetics company, we can't legally recommend our products for medical issues.
If you are wondering if CBD gummies could help with your anxiety, we would recommend consulting with a doctor or doing some research on your end.
Can CBD Gummies Help With Sleep?
Users of CBD gummies frequently report that they have calming effects that can help to wind down in the evenings, but whether they improve sleep directly is yet to be determined. Results tend to vary from person to person.
Do CBD Gummies Relieve Pain?
Many people who buy CBD gummies and have issues with pain find that they can help support their overall well-being. However, we cannot legally comment on whether CBD gummies can reduce pain.
How Long Does It Take For CBD Gummies To Work?
The effects of CBD gummies can usually be felt in 30 minutes to one hour. However, one should monitor the effects over a period of weeks to months to judge the overall impact that they may have on well-being.
Are CBD Edibles As Good As CBD Oils?
CBD edibles are generally defined as CBD products that are ingested as food. Therefore, if CBD Oil is mixed with a food product, it is also a CBD edible.
However, when taken alone, cannabidiol oils can be held under the tongue, which can lead to a quicker onset of effects and slightly higher bioavailability. CBD edibles are generally more convenient and tasty. Deciding which is best for you will depend on your personal circumstances and may take some trial and error.
Possible Side Effects
While side effects from CBD gummies are very rare, some users may experience:
- Reduced appetite
If you experience any of these symptoms, you may want to stop using CBD, speak with a doctor, or switch to a different type of CBD product.
