What Are CBD Gummies?

CBD is derived from the hemp plant, making it federally legal in the U.S., provided it contains less than 0.3% THC. As such, new CBD products have been popping up in the market, with CBD gummies being a fan-favorite.

No matter if you are new to CBD or a daily user, CBD infused gummies are one of the best, safest, and most fun ways of getting your daily dose. Coming in fruit-flavored pre-dosed shapes, you take them anywhere you go, making them discreet, travel-friendly, and convenient to use. 

CBD comes with a variety of benefits, and including it in gummies allows users to get those benefits wherever they are. CBD is known to provide many beneficial health properties. As a result, a multitude of people depend on it to help them live their daily lives in peace and comfort.


Broad-Spectrum vs. Full-Spectrum CBD Gummies

CBD gummies come in three different types — full-spectrum cbd gummies, broad-spectrum cbd gummies, and isolate cbd gummies. But here, we are going to focus on full-spectrum cbd gummies  and broad-spectrum CBD gummies.

Full-spectrum CBD gummies have a variety of components present in the hemp plant, including THC. This form is thought to be more potent and able to provide an overall better experience because it produces “the entourage effect”, which is when all of these compounds interact and work together. 

On the other hand, we have broad-spectrum CBD, which again, contains a number of compounds found in the hemp plant. The only difference is broad-spectrum CBD does not have any THC present. As a result, it does not cause the entourage effect; however, the effects provided are still more than those of CBD isolate, which is just pure CBD with no other compounds. 

We use broad-spectrum CBD in most of our CBD infused gummies, except for the watermelon-flavored full-spectrum variant. As a result, you have the option to get a little bit of THC (less than 0.3%), or you can go THC-free with our other varieties. This puts you, the customer, in charge of what you get out of our potent CBD infused gummies.


How to Calculate an Accurate CBD Dosage? 

At BudPop, we like to make things simple for our customers. That is why our CBD gummies come pre-portioned in measured doses. Calculating an accurate CBD dosage for yourself, however, depends on a number of factors. These include your metabolism, weight, tolerance to CBD, frequency with which you take it, etc. But despite this, generally, you can follow the brand or manufacturer’s recommendations on dosing. 

For example, we recommend taking one to two CBD infused gummies every six hours or as needed. You generally do not need to worry about taking too much. But still, you should always be careful and try to stay within the recommended guidelines. If you do happen to take too much, you may experience some unpleasant side effects, such as dry mouth and red eyes. However, you can mitigate this by listening to your body and only taking a dose you are comfortable with. 

Despite these general recommendations, you may still find the results of taking CBD gummies lacking. For example, if you are using CBD to ease discomfort, you may find you need to take a higher than recommended dose. Also, if you are a beginner, make sure to start slow and take even half of a CBD gummy to start until you build your tolerance. In the end, if you have any concerns, questions, or issues, it is always a good idea to consult your doctor, especially if you have any underlying medical conditions or are on any medication. This way, they can accurately advise you on the proper dose for your specific needs.


CBD Gummies For Discomfort (CBD + CBG Turmeric Gummies)

First, we have our CBD + CBG & Turmeric CBD Gummies, which are formulated to help provide relief from discomfort. Along with the 25mg of CBD, we also included 10mg of CBG and 100mg of turmeric, which is known for its ability to aid in decreasing joint swelling. It also includes black pepper extract, which boosts the absorption of the other ingredients by our bodies.

As we mentioned, all of our other CBD gummies come in broad-spectrum form, making this option stand out from the rest. With these gummies, you will get a heightened experience.

CBD Gummies FAQs

Since CBD is a derivative of the hemp plant, it is generally safe to use. It is possible to experience some unpleasant effects if you happen to take too many CBD gummies. However, the effects are usually limited to a dry mouth and red eyes. But despite this, it is still important to follow the dosing instructions indicated on the label. This way, you will stay within the guidelines that are considered safe. 

CBD and THC gummies differ in one major way — the amount of THC. While CBD gummies typically have little to no THC, THC gummies are obviously high in THC, making them cause psychoactive effects, or a “high”. By federal law, hemp-derived CBD gummies must not contain more than 0.3% THC, and some types, like broad-spectrum CBD and CBD isolate have no THC content at all. As a result, no matter the type of CBD, you will not experience a high when consuming CBD gummies. 

CBD gummies come with a variety of benefits for both the mind and body, including relief from over-thinking and unease. It also has properties that may help with joint issues and sleep promoting properties, among others. Aside from the health advantages CBD provides, CBD gummies, in particular, come with their own benefits. For example, these gummies come in pre-measured doses, making calculating how much you should take easy and convenient. They are also very travel-friendly, so you can take them in a discreet manner wherever you are. Our CBD gummies at BudPop come with even more advantages due to the addition of other ingredients such as medicinal herbs and other minor cannabinoids, such as CBG and CBN. This boosts their effectiveness, providing an all around heightened experience for the user.

Since CBD gummies are ingested, they have to pass through the digestive system before being absorbed into the bloodstream. As a result, the effects usually take about an hour to kick in, depending on a number of factors. This is in opposition to other forms of CBD such as tinctures, which are absorbed directly under the tongue, or smoking flowers and vaping carts, where the CBD is absorbed quickly by the lungs. While these options produce effects almost immediately, they tend to be shorter-lived. On the other hand, while CBD gummies take longer to kick in, you can expect the effects to last longer, up to six or eight hours.

One of the great things about CBD is that any side effects are usually mild and short-lived — some people don’t experience side effects at all!

That being said, if you take more CBD than you’re accustomed to, you may experience:

  • Sleepiness

  • Dry mouth or eyes

  • Shifts in your appetite

  • Mild stomach discomfort

  • Red eyes

These side effects will usually subside in time, but we also recommend drinking water or napping to help them pass.

If you’re new to CBD, we recommend starting low and slow until you learn your tolerance. Half of one gummy is a great starting point!

If you’re a more seasoned CBD enthusiast, we recommend taking 1 to 2 CBD gummies every six hours.

High-potency CBD gummies contain more CBD than average; 750mg of CBD is a standard amount for a bottle of gummies, while any number higher than that can be considered a stronger gummy.

Higher-potency gummies are great for supporting those who may be recovering from long-term injuries or individuals who have higher tolerances and want extra support when they feel unwell.

When you orally ingest CBD (like by taking a gummy, a capsule, an oil tincture, etc.), it will normally take up to 45 minutes before you start feeling CBD’s effects. This is because the CBD gummy must first travel through your digestive tract and liver before finally entering your bloodstream.

The best way to store CBD Gummies is somewhere dark and cool, out of direct sunlight. Keeping your gummies properly stored will help them last longer and save you money in the long run.

Some people prefer to keep their gummies in the fridge, but that’s not necessary! You can, but a dark cabinet or shelf should work fine if you prefer.

There are distinctive differences between different varieties of CBD:

  • Broad Spectrum CBD: Broad spectrum products contain all the benefits of CBD and hemp but without any THC.

  • Full Spectrum CBD: Full spectrum products do contain THC in them. Budpop’s THC products are Farm-Bill compliant, containing 0.3% THC or less.

  • Isolate: This is CBD in its purest form! Isolate is a white, flavorless powder and makes a great addition to smoothies, dressings, sauces, and more.
