How To Get the Most Out of Your CBD Gummies

Most of us have experienced CBD in some capacity, but have you tried CBD gummies yet?

If not, you’re missing out on one of the most popular CBD products on the market. It’s become a favorite due to the taste, convenience, and level of discretion they provide.

But what about if you buy gummies and you’re not sure how to get the most out of the product? Don’t worry, we’re here to guide you through this experience.

No, it’s not rocket science, but it doesn’t hurt to have a few pointers to get you going in the right direction.

Let’s explore CBD gummies together.

Find a Reputable Company to Purchase From

When it comes to CBD products, it’s all about the hemp. We’re talking about where it’s grown, how it’s grown, and the people behind the product.

When you’re looking for a CBD brand to purchase from, you have to keep these questions in mind. There are all kinds of companies out there—good and bad.

With this in mind, look for companies utilizing organic farming techniques to grow their hemp and use high-quality ingredients when putting together the final product. Also, see if there’s mention of how they extract the oil from the hemp plants.

You want to look for the CO2 extraction process because it makes for the cleanest and most effective products.

Start Slow and Work Your Way Up

We know they’re gummies for crying out loud, and they taste good. The good news is there’s not much that can happen if you eat too many. You’ll take a good nap, wake up, and go about your day, or night.

When starting out with any CBD product, the golden rule is “start slow and work your way up.”

You’ll start with one and see how you feel. If you don’t feel anything, you can take another one after a couple of hours, or the next time around, you can start with two.

Take Your “Lifestyle” into Account

When you’re thinking about the best time to take these flavorful CBD gummies, think about where you’ll be and if CBD’s effects are compatible with the environment.

Some people may experience drowsiness or fatigue while they’re body is getting adjusted to the cannabinoids.

Aside from this, keep in mind it’s not the best idea to take CBD gummies if you have to drive somewhere either, for those exact reasons. This is why most people enjoy taking CBD after a long day when they can chill at home.

However, CBD gummy options are starting as low as 5mg per gummy. This is the perfect microdose amount for daytime use. You know, before you get home and can really experience the full effects uninterrupted by tasks the day calls for.

Give it Some Time

All good things take time.

In this case, it takes time for CBD to build up in your system. Not everyone needs this to happen because they have enough cannabinoids in their system.

Yes, we produce cannabinoids naturally.

However, some people need a little extra build-up of cannabinoids for better communication between the endocannabinoid system and the CB1 and CB2 receptors.

If you’ve given it some time, and nothing is happening, or you don’t feel like you’re getting the most out of your product, it’s time to try a different product or different brand. CBD products all have different levels of bioavailability.

This references the amount of CBD your body absorbs and utilizes. Gummies happen to be on the lower end of bioavailability because some of the CBD is lost through the digestive system. If you simply aren’t feeling your gummies, try using a tincture oil or vape pen. They have the highest levels of absorption.

Additionally, check to see if you’re taking a full-spectrum or broad-spectrum product. Sometimes, full-spectrum CBD products work better for some people because they still contain trace amounts of THC, which allows the “entourage effect” to take place, which means enhanced therapeutic effects for you!

Things to Remember Through the Process

CBD gummies are accessible for all those reasons we listed off—taste, convenience, discretion, etc.

But the thing to keep in mind with any CBD product is the experience varies person to person due to our extremely unique body compositions. While gummies may reign supreme in our book, you may be unimpressed with them and like tinctures more….and vice versa.

One thing is for sure, the effects of CBD are well-worth the experimentation. Many people bad-mouthed it initially because, well, isn’t that what people have done since the beginning of time—bad mouth what they don’t understand?

But CBD is steadily gaining traction, exposure, and acceptance. The Farm Bill of 2018 gave it the push it needed into the homes of millions of consumers across the country.
