If you are looking for a natural and effective way to relieve pain, CBD gummies may be just what you need. Cannabidiol, or CBD, is the non-psychoactive compound found in the cannabis plant. Unlike THC, it does not have mind altering effects. As said by sandiegomagazine.com, CBD has been shown to help with a wide variety of pains including those caused by inflammation and neuropathic conditions like fibromyalgia.
Why use Gummies?
CBD gummies offer an alternative to taking capsules or other medications that can be difficult to swallow or cause unpleasant side effects. They come in a variety of flavors so they are appealing for both kids and adults. In addition, gummies can be stored in a cool, dry place for use whenever you need them.
How are CBD gummies manufactured?
CBD gummies are made by dissolving the active ingredient into a base (often glycerin or vegetable oil) and mixing it with flavoring agents. The final product is then colored and flavored to look like candy or the like. Because of the color and texture, they are often called “candy oil” or “candy oil drops.” Gummies also come in other forms including hard candies and chewies. Some manufacturers mix pure CBD into their base. This is usually made by mixing CBD with a base like vegetable glycerin. Since the gummy is primarily made of sugar, these gummies are generally known as sugar CBD gummies.
How do you take CBD gummies?
When taking regular gummies you should take 1-3 gummies. Gummy bears, and similar candies, fall into this category. They have a soft consistency and tend to work best when your body has not yet digested the other foods you have consumed for the day for instance breakfast or lunch. If your baseline pain is mild, then it may be good to start with just one or two drops of oil. Each drop contains about 10 mg of CBD. You can also start with taking a half gummy (1/2 gummy bear or 1/2 lemon drop) and then adjust your dose after you try it.
How long do they last?
The effects of CBD gummies on pain relief usually last 4-8 hours, after which the body metabolizes them. Since they are made primarily of sugar, they will raise blood sugar levels. This can cause feelings of nausea and dizziness after several hours and is why you should take them with food or wait several hours between doses if possible.
What are the side effects?
Gummies, like any CBD product, can cause side effects in some people. People who have a sensitivity to THC (found in a lot of marijuana) may not tolerate gummies. If you experience nausea for instance, try taking another form of CBD such as oil drops or dissolve the CBD in juice. The other most common side effects of gummies include dry mouth and headaches. If these occur and worsen over time, you might want to consider reducing your dosage and see if it helps.
