Your Top 10 FAQs About CBD and THC Gummies Answered

In today’s world, Cannabidiol (CBD) seems to be everywhere you turn. From grocery store shelves to gas stations, it feels as if everyone is selling CBD. There’s no question that CBD gummies and other cannabis-infused candies have gained immense popularity. However, there is often confusion surrounding these products. Plus, THC gummies are also popping up here and there, adding even more confusion to the mix. If you’ve found yourself wondering what you should look for if you want to try our CBD or THC gummies for the first time, look no further.  We’ve written this article to help clear up the many misconceptions surrounding CBD and THC gummies, as well as answer some of the most common questions we get.

 

  1. What is CBD?

CBD is one of the many Cannabinoid compounds found in Cannabis plants, including Marijuana and Hemp. While Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is more widely recognized, CBD is gaining popularity. These two compounds differ significantly, and we will delve into their distinctions later. For now, it’s important to note that both CBD and THC are found in Cannabis and ongoing research aims to uncover their potential health benefits.

 

  1. What does CBD do?

The specific effects of CBD are still being explored, but early research shows promising results. CBD interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS), which is made up of receptors and enzymes that regulate a number of bodily functions. CBD hits these receptors and activates then, potentially enhancing their function. Some receptors affected by CBD are involved in producing dopamine (related to motivation and reward) and serotonin (regulates mood). Users often report improved well-being and focus after using CBD.

 

  1. Are CBD and THC legal?

When it comes to CBD, the answer is absolutely! CBD products derived from industrial hemp are legal across the United States. The majority of CBD products come from hemp rather than marijuana. In 2018, the United States Legislature passed the Farm Bill, a law revised every five years. The 2018 version legalized industrial hemp products containing less than 0.3% Delta 9 THC by dry weight, making it legal to purchase and sell such products nationwide. As you might have guessed, this law applies to how legal Delta 9 THC is as well. In order for Delta 9 THC to be legal nationwide without a prescription, it must also come from the hemp plant, and that plant must contain less than 0.3% THC by volume. As long as that criteria is met, the THC is legal. This is how we are able to produce Cheech & Chong’s Cruise Chews, which have 3 mgs of THC and 30 mgs of CBD in each chew. Cruise Chews are Delta 9 THC gummies that give a mellow, relaxing effect when eaten, thanks to the ratio of THC to CBD.

 

  1. Will CBD or THC gummies get me high?

So, when it comes to CBD, no, CBD gummies will not induce a high. While CBD is often confused with Delta 9 THC, they are distinct compounds. Delta 9 THC is the psychoactive component of Cannabis, primarily activating the CB1 endocannabinoid receptor responsible for appetite, memory, and cognitive functions. CBD interacts with different cannabinoid receptors, producing non-psychogenic effects and potentially boosting certain cognitive functions. If you are looking to feel high, you can get THC gummies legally which contain less than 0.3% Delta 9 THC. This might not sound like a lot, but you can still get the same amount of Delta 9 THC as many medical grade edibles, depending on the product. 

 

  1. What are the different kinds of CBD and THC?

When exploring CBD and THC gummies, you may notice different types of CBD mentioned on the ingredient labels. This is because there are three main types of CBD oil: full-spectrum, broad-spectrum, and CBD isolates. These categories refer to the additional compounds present in the CBD oil.

 

– Full-spectrum CBD contains CBD along with other substances like terpenes and THC (below 0.3%).

– Broad-spectrum CBD is similar but does not contain THC. It includes terpenes and other compounds, utilizing the “entourage effect” for stronger reactions.

– CBD isolate is pure CBD without any other compounds. It’s suitable for those who prefer THC-free CBD products or have allergies. CBD isolates are a recommended starting point for new CBD users.

 

There is only one type of THC gummy, though you may see Delta 8 and Delta 10 gummies around as well. Delta 8 and Delta 10 are more newly discovered cannabinoids, which research is still exploring.

 

  1. Do CBD or THC gummies have any side effects?

CBD may cause minor side effects, such as dry mouth, mild nausea, diarrhea, or fatigue. However, these effects are usually temporary and diminish or cease with dosage reduction. Adverse effects are more common when consuming large amounts of CBD frequently. It is advisable to consult with a medical professional, especially if taking medication, before starting CBD usage. CBD gummies and other CBD products carry similar considerations. THC gummies may cause minor side effects as well, including but not limited to:

  • Euphoria and altered perception
  • Short-term memory impairment
  • Dry mouth (cottonmouth)
  • Red eyes
  • Sedation and drowsiness
  • Increased appetite (the munchies)

 

  1. Are CBD and THC gummies safe?

Natural CBD and THC products have repeatedly demonstrated their safety when used in appropriate dosages.

 

 Although CBD and THC come from Cannabis plants, concerns about safety have emerged due to incidents where synthetic CBD caused poisoning in 2018. However, research and proper regulation ensure the safety of natural CBD products.

 

Since the CBD and THC industry is still in its early stages, it is crucial to conduct research before purchasing CBD and THC products. Read reviews, ensure the company employs third-party testing, and emphasizes transparency regarding their processes and testing to guarantee product quality. Additionally, keep CBD and THC gummies out of the reach of children as they might mistake them for regular candy.

 

  1. What are the benefits of CBD and THC gummies compared to other products?

There is a wide range of CBD and THC products available, including lotions, tinctures, capsules, and beverages. So why should someone choose gummies? One reason is taste. CBD and THC are both derived from Cannabis, which has a distinct flavor and aroma due to terpene compounds. Some products may carry this flavor, while CBD isolate can be tasteless or flavored by manufacturers. CBD and THC gummies provide a pleasant taste and gummy texture, making them more appealing to the taste buds compared to tinctures.

 

Another advantage of gummies is control over dosage. When using a tincture, accidentally dispensing excess drops is possible. With gummies, the exact amount of CBD or THC in each gummy is known, facilitating precise dosage.

 

On top of this, edibles like gummies offer broader effects compared to topicals. Topicals tend to stay localized to the area of application, making them ideal for skincare and inflammation purposes. 

 

  1. How many CBD or THC gummies can I take in a day?

Individual experiences with CBD and THC can vary due to factors such as absorption rates and personal sensitivity. Oral products, including gummies, are absorbed at a rate of 5-15%, varying among individuals. To determine the optimal dosage, start with a small serving, such as one gummy, and wait an hour to assess its effects. If necessary, increase the serving size gradually until the desired results are achieved. It is essential to approach dosage adjustments in a cautious and informed manner.

 

  1. Do CBD and THC gummies work as effectively as other products?

Yes, CBD and THC gummies can be equally effective, although they may have slightly different effects. Compared to topicals, gummies have a more generalized impact on the body. It’s important to note that gummies may take longer to take effect, as they need to be digested before the CBD or THC can be absorbed. Additionally, the effects of CBD and THC gummies may last longer in the system.

 

Remember, consulting with a healthcare provider is crucial before initiating CBD or THC usage. Start with small doses and gradually increase as needed. Ensure that CBD and THC gummies are stored safely to prevent children from accessing them, mistaking them for regular candy.
