Know the different types of CBD gummies…
The world of CBD gummies can be confusing, and it seems like there are more brands and products popping up every single day. In this post, we will help you understand the difference between different CBD-infused gummies to help you make a more informed purchase decision when the time comes. The topics we will cover include a basic overview of the different types of CBD gummies, whether or not CBD gummies will get you high, and whether or not CBD gummies will show up on a drug test.
First off, what are CBD gummies?
CBD gummies can either be referring to gummies infused with CBD isolate or gummies infused with full spectrum hemp extract (CBD plus other hemp plant constituents).
- CBD isolate: just CBD, no other cannabinoids, terpenes, or hemp plant compounds
- Full spectrum hemp extract: CBD plus all of the other plant compounds found in that hemp plant such as terpenes, other cannabinoids (CBG, CBN, etc.), flavonoids, etc.
What are hemp gummies?
Sometimes CBD gummies are referred to as CBD gummies, and sometimes they are called hemp gummies. They usually mean the same thing. However, we recommend that you always read the label, know the company you are buying from, and check the lab results before you buy. Sometimes, hemp gummies may simply mean they were made using hemp seed oil, which contains no real benefits as compared to hemp plant extract/CBD.
Is there a difference between hemp gummies and CBD gummies?
There may be a difference, and it all depends on how your gummies were made. If your gummies were made with CBD isolate, they will only contain CBD and no other hemp/cannabis plant compounds. If your gummies are made with full spectrum hemp extract, they will contain CBD as well as other cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids. If your gummies were made with hemp seed oil and nothing else, they won’t contain CBD or any other beneficial hemp plant compounds,
3 Different types of CBD gummies
Whether your gummies are labeled as hemp gummies, CBD gummies, gummy bears with CBD, or one of the slew of other names out there, they likely fall into one of these three categories: full spectrum, broad spectrum, or CBD isolate.
What are full spectrum CBD gummies?
Full spectrum CBD gummies are infused with a full spectrum hemp extract. They contain CBD as well as other cannabinoids like CBG, CBN, CBC, THC, and potentially other cannabinoids depending on the brand. In order to be legally sold online, they must contain less than 0.3% THC by weight. Full spectrum gummies will also contain other plant compounds found naturally in hemp plants such as terpenes and flavonoids.
What are broad spectrum CBD gummies?v
Broad spectrum gummies are similar to full spectrum gummies only that THC has been completely stripped out of them. Broad spectrum gummies will still contain other cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids, making them a great choice for those that want to avoid THC while still receiving the benefits of the entourage effect.
What are CBD isolate gummies?
Gummies made using CBD isolate will solely contain CBD and no other hemp/cannabis plant constituents. We only recommend isolate-based gummies for those taking CBD for very specific reasons. Otherwise, most CBD gummy users will prefer full spectrum gummies over their isolate-based counterparts.
Will CBD gummies get you high?
No, CBD gummies will not get you high. CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid, which means that it interacts with our brain and bodies differently than THC does. Furthermore, even though full spectrum gummies do contain trace amounts of THC, it is not nearly enough to make you feel high or intoxicated in any way.
Will CBD gummies show up on a drug test?
This all depends on the type of gummies you choose to ingest as well as the type of drug test you are taking. Most drug tests only test for THC levels, which means that broad spectrum or CBD isolate gummies are safe. However, gummies made with full spectrum hemp extract will contain trace amounts of THC. This means that there is the potential to fail a drug test after taking any full spectrum product. If this is a concern, we recommend broad spectrum gummies which contain no THC, or gummies made with CBD isolate , which only contain CBD.
What is actually in hemp gummies? What are the ingredients?
The answer to this depends on who you purchase hemp-infused gummies from. This is because different hemp and CBD companies all have different sources for their hemp. Some companies grow their own plants and take care of the entire process from plant to harvest to extraction to product production. Other companies purchase their hemp wholesale and then only handle processing and manufacturing of the products. Other companies simply white label products from other companies. So the best way to know what’s in your hemp gummies is to read the product label.
And if all else fails, we recommend either reaching out to the company directly, or finding another hemp gummy brand that gives you the information you deem necessary to feel comfortable with making a purchase.
So if they don’t get you high, what do CBD gummies do?
CBD gummies are just one of MANY options for taking CBD. They provide a quick, discreet, and tasty way to get your daily dose. Not to mention they taste great and offer a nice touch of nostalgia that personally brings back some great memories. The best part about CBD gummies on our site? They typically feature organic ingredients, cane sugar, and other more natural ingredients which actually make them a better option than cheap candy.
As for their benefits? More research needs to be completed on CBD before we can say anything definitive about health benefits. Most of the stories behind CBD’s efficacy and the ability of CBD gummies to have a real health impact are just that – stories.
But that’s not to say that they won’t have an impact. At the end of the day, everyone’s experience with CBD is different. CBD gummies may work for you in a way that CBD oil or capsules never did.
