Some people find that CBD gummies are the ideal way to boost their CBD levels throughout the day when using them in conjunction with stronger CBD products . For others, CBD gummies alone provide a sufficient dosage for a consistent CBD level all day long.
However, to ensure that you’re staying on the safe side, make sure that you know for certain the dose that your body can tolerate. You might have to consult with a medical professional. That way, you’re getting the optimum dose for the best possible effects on your body.
Most CBD gummies are made using full-spectrum CBD, as proponents believe that the full spectrum allows you to take advantage of the entourage effect. Of course, alongside all the cannabinoids, you are also consuming around 0.2% THC; however, this is not enough to trigger any noticeable effects.
CBD gummies, along with many other CBD edibles, are often confused with the marijuana edibles that you might find in an Amsterdam coffee shop. The confusion between these two very different products leaves people worried that CBD gummy supplements will get them high.
The Cannabinoid Breakdown of CBD Gummies
"CBD is actually hard to cook with. It has a disgusting taste", says Greg Hanger, head chef at Kalifornia Kitchen in London, who has created an entire CBD afternoon tea . Greg pays attention to the type of oil that the CBD is mixed with, saying "coconut oil CBD is great in Thai cooking balanced with coriander, ginger and lime. Olive oil CBD is great for Middle Eastern foods like hummus or you could even mask the flavour with rosemary and put it in cheesy sauce or mashed potatoes ."
“CBD tends to work well in foods with a stronger, earthy taste, such as chocolate and coffee”, says Meg Greenacre, head chef at Erpingham House in Norwich. "I’ve been inspired by menus in London to create a delicious CBD brownie for our customers here. I was surprised that during taste tests, no one could tell which brownie the CBD was in and actually, most people thought it was the batch that did not contain it. I am looking into adding CBD to more sweet bakes such as nutty flapjacks and beetroot chocolate cake , which naturally have a deeper and richer flavour, complementing the earthy, almost bitter, taste and smell of CBD oil.
Is CBD a miracle cure?
Coffees and cakes may contain between 5–10mg of CBD. But clinical trials administer doses of around 100–1,500mg per day, with medical supervison.
So why are we increasingly seeing CBD-labelled coffees, cakes and croissants in shops, cafes and restaurants all over the UK?
"There is a greater public awareness of the potential therapeutic uses of medical cannabis and cannabinoids such as CBD, particularly in light of the UK government decision to permit some cannabis prescriptions in response to high-profile campaigns by the families of children affected by severe epilepsy," says Professor Sumnall.
