So, what are CBD gummies?Most people are already familiar with gummy candy. It’s been around for some time in various shapes and flavors. CBD Gummies are simply a gummy candy treat with cannabidiol in it. Cannabidiol (CBD), as you may already know, is one of many natural compounds that are found inside of the cannabis sativa genus of plants. Both Hemp and Marijuana have CBD in them but hemp carries much more than its regulated cousin. When shopping for CBD gummies - or any way to enjoy it - there are a few tips that will be helpful when surfing through the sea of choices. Here are a couple of tips to remember when shopping for CBD gummies:
Be sure to read all of the labels
- This is where all of the info is. You will want to be sure that you are completely aware of what you’re purchasing. From the ingredients, amounts of each and recommended serving suggestions, a complete label will come with everything you need to know.
Remember to review the Spectrum
- The “Spectrum” type is a descriptive label that lets you know how much of the plant compounds were included in the final product. Full Spectrum keeps all compounds of the plant in your final consumable. Broad Spectrum and Isolate both have the THC removed. If you want to avoid everything but the CBD, then Isolate is what you’re looking for. [Read More about Spectrums, here]
Look for Third Party Testing and COA’s
- Reputable companies who manufacture CBD products will have viewable third party testing results as well as Certificates of Analysis (COAs) on their website. Some companies even use QR codes on their packaging to link to these results easily with your phone.
