CBD is touted as a wonder drug by some, being hailed as a solution for anxiety, lack of sleep, and chronic pain. While the claims about CBD are sometimes exaggerated, there is scientific evidence suggesting it can be used to manage pain — which is why many people choose to buy various CBD products. Most CBD products are sold as oils, but there are also other edible options, including quirky things like CBD gummies.
CBD gummies are a great way to introduce CBD into your daily life. This easy to ingest format makes the amazing pain-relieving power of CBD palatable for many.
Cannabidiol (CBD) gummies are a form of CBD edible. These are foods that contain the compound CBD, which comes from the cannabis plant.
CBD gummies are well-suited for managing chronic pain. Several high-profile clinical trials have shown that CBD offers potent analgesic (pain-killing) effects. Other studies have demonstrated CBD’s supportive effects for reducing chronic inflammation, relaxing tense or spastic muscle fibers, easing stress and anxiety, and improving sleep quality and efficiency.
Consuming gummies and other edibles can be an easy, tasty, and discreet way of ingesting CBD. Some common reasons for taking CBD include managing pain and seeking relief from anxiety or depression.
Gummies may contain one of three main variations of CBD. These are:
- Full-spectrum CBD: This contains all the phytochemicals that occur naturally in the cannabis plant, such as various other cannabinoids, terpenes, and oils. It also contains a trace amount of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is the psychoactive compound in cannabis that produces the “high.”
- Broad-spectrum CBD: This contains all the phytochemicals in the cannabis plant but no THC.
- CBD isolate: This is the pure form of CBD.
Due to a lack of regulation, companies and consumers sometimes confuse these terms — particularly broad-spectrum CBD and CBD isolate — and use them incorrectly.
