Hemp CBD edibles and gummies are similar to a typical gummy supplement, but they contain the CBD, or cannabidiol, compound derived from the natural hemp plant. Like all federally legal CBD products, CBD edibles contain less than 0.3% THC and do not have any psychoactive effects.
CBD edibles are a simple and flavorful way to ingest CBD and may provide therapeutic relief from a variety of issues and symptoms including anxiety, depression, insomnia, inflammation and pain.
Hemp CBD edibles are available in a wide range of product types including gummies, lollipops, candies, caramels and more, as well as flavors and dosage strengths. Shop Go Green’s selection of natural hemp CBD edibles today!
How many CBD edibles or gummies should I take?
If you are new to CBD, hemp CBD edibles are an easy way to start small. Whatever CBD delivery method you choose, be mindful of how much you take and start with a smaller dose. For an easy-to-understand dosage reference, check out Honest Marijuana Co.’s CBD dosage suggestions and calculator.
There are quite a few factors that can effect your optimal dosage, including weight, metabolism, severity of symptoms and quality of CBD product. Start with the recommended dosage based on your weight for three days to give your body time to react. Based on how you feel, increase or decrease the dosage and give it another three days. If you feel any discomfort, decrease the dose the next day. You can always gradually increase the amount in the future.
How long does it take for CBD edibles to work?
Hemp CBD edibles can take 30-60 minutes to have an effect. However, there are many other factors that may make this vary from person to person such as diet, metabolism, gender, weight and tolerance. With CBD, it can be harder to feel immediate effects compared to THC, so it is advised to wait at least 24 hours before taking more you try a higher dose. There are dosing apps available to help keep track of this.
Further, some CBD edibles may take longer to kick in than others. For example, chewable edibles such as gummies take longer because they enter the body through the digestive system. Gum and lollipops that stay in your mouth enter the body faster via sublingual absorption and are likely to take effect more quickly.
