What Are CBD Gummies?
CBD Gummies are edible soft/chewy candies that contain cannabidiol (CBD) oil. They come in a large variety of flavors, colors, shapes, and concentrations of CBD. Gummies offer a discreet, easy and tasty way to take CBD, and new effective marketing campaigns by many Gummy manufacturers has their popularity soaring with current CBD users and potential new users alike.
Because most CBD products are not FDA approved, strength, accuracy and purity can vary from brand to brand and even within the same brand, meaning that there is not a 100% guarantee that you are getting what is on the label. That is why you always want to look for a reputable brand like CBD American Shaman of Addison, with over 400 stores nation wide CBD American Shaman is a brand you can trust.
What Are The CBD Gummy Health Benefits?
Some manufacturers of CBD gummies suggest that CBD is very effective at helping with anxiety, depression, pain, inflammation, and improving sleep. There is one CBD product (Epidiolex) that has been approved by the FDA to treat epilepsy.
Currently, research into the effectiveness of CBD products is only beginning and most scientist are testing the pure CBD oil, not gummies. Even for pure CBD oil, there have been very few US clinical trials backing up the apparent health benefits of CBD, with the 2018 Farm Bill in place research is expected to increase and we will start to see all sorts of new CBD studies including CBD Gummies.
Even though there isn’t any US scientific evidence that gummies work, there is a mountain of anecdotally reports from current consumers that claim there is a health benefit from using CBD Gummies.
Will CBD Gummies Make You High?
CBD is derived from the hemp plant, which when grown properly will have no more than .3% THC. THC is the chemical in marijuana that will make you high. By federal law, the hemp plant must contain no more than .3% THC to be used for making CBD, if the plant contains more than .3% farmers are at risk of prosecution under the new federal law. CBD gummies have no psychoactive properties, so they will not get you high.
The main active ingredient in the hemp plant is CBD, and CBD in it’s active state does not cause any psychoactive activity in the body. Instead, CBD has been credited with possibly relieving anxiety, inflammation, insomnia, and pain, to name a few possible health benefits and these anecdotal reports from current CBD Gummy users are extremely promising.
