Do CBD gummies get you high_

It’s hard to resist the charm of CBD gummies.

At this point, they’re everywhere.

According to Consumer Reports, “an estimated 64 million Americans have tried CBD in the last 24 months.” 

These numbers speak for themselves and prove CBD is making its way into conversations all across the country. People from all walks of life see CBD for the game-changer that it is—a convenient, tasty option that provides a comfortable introduction for consumers. 

There are tons of options designed to meet our personal needs and preferences. 

This makes sense because we’re all looking to get something different from our CBD products. Plus, they’re convenient and discrete enough to carry along, ensuring you get your daily serving of CBD without a hitch. 

Perhaps, one of the main reasons people love CBD gummies is that they don’t get you high, but instead produce therapeutic effects which aim to support several aspects of daily living.   

The CBD market is growing exponentially, expected to reach $20 billion by 2024. Numbers like this seem incomprehensible, but so do CBD’s benefits until you’ve experienced everything cannabinoids have to offer.

What Are CBD Gummies Made Of? 

CBD gummies start with the agricultural production of hemp. The crops are carefully cultivated, preferably with organic farming techniques, and then the crops are harvested and prepped for the extraction process. 

It’s during this part of the process that different types of CBD oil are created. With full-spectrum CBD oil, the hemp plant is crushed and the oil is extracted. All of the plant’s cannabinoids are present in this type of oil, including CBD, CBG, CBN, terpenes, and trace amounts of THC—although less than 0.3%. 

Broad-spectrum oil goes through the same process with the addition of one extra step that pulls all trace amounts of THC from the oil. This is the recommended option for anyone who goes through routine drug screenings for school and/or work. 

CBD isolate goes through an additional winterization process that extracts any remaining cannabinoids, waxes, and terpenes from the oil. This creates oil with up to 99% purity and an excellent option for those who want a zero THC product. 

You can find gummies with all three types of CBD oils discussed above. It’s all about what you’re looking for. If you’re looking to boost your wellness with little to no effort on your part, there’s plenty of supplemental gummy options blended with varieties of vitamins and nutrients. 

Alternatively, you can find gummies that transport you back to childhood and taste like candy. And if you’ve developed a tolerance—no need to worry—there are gummies with higher concentration levels to give you precisely what you need. 

It’s also helpful to take note of how your gummies get their flavoring and color. Some companies use heaps of artificial sweeteners and coloring agents, which can be harmful to your health. You’ll want to find a company utilizing all-natural sweeteners and coloring with fruits and vegetables. This translates to an overall cleaner, more effective product. 

As you can see, CBD gummies, by definition, can’t contain any more than 0.3% THC. So, there’s no need to worry about any intoxicating effects. 

How Many CBD Gummies Should I Eat? 

Settling on a serving size depends on your tolerance, metabolism, and CBD amount each gummy contains. 

The concentration of your product is important to keep in mind since some gummies start as low as 5mg and reach as high as 30mg per gummy. 

Regardless of the concentration, it’s best to start with one and work your way up. Keep in mind; you can take up to 1500mg of CBD a day without any side effects.

Since many CBD gummy products on the market are blended with vitamins and nutrients, it’s a good idea to adhere to the daily suggested serving amount since some of these options contain additional supplements. 

For example, if you’re taking CBD Gummies with multivitamins, make sure you’re only taking the advised amount. The same idea applies to CBD Gummies with Melatonin

How Often Can I Eat CBD Gummies? 

CBD gummies are the perfect way to build your daily wellness routine.

If you have gummies on the lower end of the concentration spectrum, you can start with one in the morning. Starting with a smaller amount in the morning works to set the tone for the day, and you can keep them close by if you need more.

Alternatively, you can combine your gummies with other long-lasting products like tincture oils or capsules

You’ll find your tolerance level based on your experience and comfort. Keep in mind this will continuously fluctuate as you build a tolerance. 

The Best Time to Take CBD Gummies

You won’t experience any side effects with your CBD gummies, so there’s technically no wrong time to chomp down a few. 

Some people like to start their day with a gummy or two, while others like to use them for sleep. Quite frankly, you can use them for both. It’s all up to you and what you’re looking to achieve.

Since CBD has a wide range of benefits, the possibilities are endless. 

At the same time, some people like to take their gummies before tense or uncomfortable situations.

As you become more experienced with your CBD gummies, you’ll figure out what time of day meshes with your schedule and lifestyle. 

The Future of CBD Gummies…

Experiment with CBD gummies to find your sweet spot. 

You’ll see how many you need to eat to achieve your wellness goals and the time of day that works for you. 

You won’t experience any psychoactive effects with CBD because it contains less than 0.3% THC. 

However, if you’re someone who wants to avoid any trace of THC altogether, gummies made with broad-spectrum oil or CBD isolate are the best option for you. 

Who knew CBD could be such a sweet journey?
