Looking for a fun, tasty, and convenient way to incorporate CBD into your routine? Look no further than CBD gummies!
What Are CBD Gummies?
Using CBD extract from the buds of the hemp plant, CBD gummies combine CBD with flavorful and wellness-boosting ingredients such as honey, lemon, or turmeric that turn the earthy-tasting CBD into something sweet.
How Do CBD Gummies Make You Feel?
Like other forms of CBD, taking CBD gummies can help relieve physical tension, soothe mental stress, and provide full-body relaxation by interacting with the body’s endocannabinoid system (the ECS).
The ECS is a complex internal network that uses naturally produced endocannabinoids and cannabinoid receptors to help maintain equilibrium within the body.
Because phytocannabinoids like CBD are similar to our own endocannabinoids, they can enter the bloodstream after consumption and support endocannabinoids in supporting internal balance.
What Are the Benefits of CBD Gummies?
CBD gummies provide a number of wellness benefits in a candy-sized packet. Here are some of the most popular benefits of CBD gummies.
Relief From Generalized Discomfort
CBD gummies can help reduce physical discomfort throughout the body by partnering with endocannabinoids in the ECS.
When endocannabinoids bind with cannabinoid receptors in a tense muscle or swollen joint, they can help ease discomfort. And, with its naturally soothing properties, CBD can help provide further support.
Stress can affect every part of our wellbeing, mentally and physically. When the stress hormone cortisol is released, you may feel nervous thoughts racing in your brain and the tension in your shoulders or jaw.
Luckily, CBD gummies can help counter these manifestations of stress by helping to calm the mind, soothe body tension, and enhance the mood.
Once absorbed into the body, CBD can work with the mood-regulating endocannabinoid anandamide and the neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine, all of which help elevate feelings of pleasure and relaxation while lowering levels of the stress-producing hormone cortisol.
Helps Promote Relaxation
Because the endocannabinoid system helps regulate mood, CBD gummies can help calm the mind and body as needed.
Endocannabinoids such as anandamide, also known as the bliss molecule, already work to respond to dips in mood or high levels of stress. Since CBD can help prolong the effects of anandamide and other endocannabinoids, chomping on a CBD gummy or two can help promote a deeper and long-lasting sense of calmness and relaxation.
CBD gummies can support your digestive health by working within the ECS to help regulate appetite. The endocannabinoid system is responsible for helping the body stimulate appetite and movement of stomach muscles that assist with digestive health and nutrient absorption.
The calming nature of CBD can also help relieve any symptoms of stress that may present themselves in the digestive system, such as indigestion or nausea.
And because ginger is especially useful for a sour stomach, our one-of-a-kind Lemon Ginger Honey Dropscan help provide added digestive support.
How Long Does It Take for CBD Gummies To Work?
Since CBD gummies go through the digestive tract before the CBD is absorbed into the bloodstream, it can take 45 minutes to an hour before the effects of the gummies kick in.
When Should I Take My CBD Gummies?
CBD gummies are great to take any time you need long-lasting relief from tension, stress, or discomfort – day or night!
Gummies are super easy to take on the go, and because each one has the same amount of CBD, you won’t need to spend any time measuring out your dose or wondering how much CBD you’re getting.
If taking to help with sleep, you can take one to two about 45 minutes before bedtime, so the effects will kick in right around the time you are getting ready to hit the hay.
You can also take a gummy or two an hour before working out to help relax the body and destress the mind, or shortly after an intense exercise to help support the muscle recovery process.
How Long Do the Effects Last?
The beneficial effects of CBD gummies often last for around eight hours, providing a full day or night of support.
What Types of Gummies Are There?
When it comes to CBD gummies, there are many beneficial forms you can choose from.
Full-spectrum or whole plant CBD contain all of the nourishing plant parts naturally found in the hemp flowers and leaves. This means that along with the CBD, full-spectrum CBD includes the naturally occurring cannabinoids including THC, terpenes, polyphenols, and flavonoids.
Full-spectrum CBD gummies allow for the entourage effect, meaning that the benefits of CBD are stronger as the different plant parts interact with one another.
Broad-spectrum gummies will contain all of the hemp plant’s natural compounds except for THC, which is completely filtered out during the extraction process.
Broad-spectrum CBD gummies can still produce an entourage effect, while the absence of THC makes it a good choice for anyone who is sensitive to THC or who is concerned about THC showing up on a drug test.
CBD isolate gummies use an isolated form of CBD extract, meaning that all other plant cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids are removed from the CBD extract before it is incorporated into the gummies.
Do CBD Gummies Come in Different Flavors?
Along with deciding between full-spectrum, broad-spectrum, and isolated CBD gummies, you’ll also want to consider the flavor and other ingredients included in CBD gummies.
More so than with CBD oils, there is a lot of room for variation in how CBD gummies are made and what other ingredients are added.
Some CBD gummies are loaded with artificial flavoring and contain lots of added refined sugars, corn starch, or gelatin. The Brothers Apothecary’s one-of-a-kind Honey Drops, on the other hand, use only pure honey and 100% natural ingredients to create our sweet and tart full-spectrum gummies.
All of our gummies here at the Apothecary are also coated with a natural, water-soluble vitamin C that, along with the minerals from the honey, provide added antioxidants capable of combating oxidative stress, which can negatively impact heart health and immune function over time.
Between the CBD’s naturally soothing properties and the vitamin-filled honey, our CBD gummies can help to support the body from the inside out!
Gummies are a great way to enjoy CBD at home, at the gym, or on the go. At The Brothers Apothecary, we pride ourselves on only using organic, high-quality, and third-party tested hemp along with locally sourced natural ingredients.
