CBD gummies are probably one of the most popular cannabis products when you buy weed online in Canada. These cannabis edibles are praised both by new users and connoisseurs who love their versatility, ease of use and delicious taste. From CBD gummies shaped like our childhood gummy bears, soft caramels, to sour and sweet jelly bombs, there is so much variety on the market, that it can sometimes be difficult to know what to shop.
To make things easier for you next time you buy weed online in Canada, here is our little guide on how to buy CBD gummies and which criteria to take into consideration:
The first thing you need to consider when you buy cannabis edibles like CBD gummies is the type of CBD used.
Some CBD gummies will be made with CBD isolate, pure CBD, with no other cannabinoids. This is ideal if you want to stay away from THC. However, through its method of extraction, CBD isolate has no terpenes or cannabis’ volatile organic compounds. What it means is that the end result, the CBD gummies (or any other cannabis edibles based on CBD isolate), won’t provide the full range of health benefits.
Other cannabis edibles will contain broad-spectrum CBD. You will have most cannabinoids, but no THC.
Full-spectrum CBD gummies will contain all of the plant’s cannabinoids, including THC. If you are looking for CBD gummies providing the most therapeutic benefits, you should definitely buy full-spectrum cannabis edibles.
As there are many different CBD gummies on the market, you can find various potencies. Some CBD gummies start with 5mg, others will contain 70mg. If you are not sure what dose to take, the best bet is to start with the lowest one available and increase from there. It is the best strategy if you want to have a pleasant cannabis experience and not end up on a bad trip.
It is easy to think that all low dosage cannabis edibles will have the same effects on your body, but it also depends on the CBD source. For example, a 5mg full-spectrum CBD gummy may feel a lot more potent than a 5mg CBD isolate gummy.
Like any other products, when you buy weed online and are looking for CBD gummies, you should check the list of ingredients. Do you want to shop organic? Are you looking for vegan cannabis edibles? Low sugar? Gluten-free? Do you want to stay away from additives like artificial ingredients and preservatives? You have lots of different cannabis products on the market, look for those that match your specific needs and preferences.
The overall recommendation is to buy CBD gummies that are organic, non-GMO, with real sugar and natural flavourings. Some gummies even contain vitamins or superfoods like turmeric and spirulina, for a wider range of health benefits.
Choose brands that are testing their products in labs, preferably by a third party. Test results will tell you whether the product contains what it says it does. That way, no surprises. You will get the expected benefits and effects.
How to use CBD gummies
Some of the CBD gummies you can find when you buy weed online in Canada come at 5mg or more of CBD per gummy, with packs of 20 to 60. With cannabis, it is always advised to start slow, especially if you are a new user and don’t know what dosage is right for you. 5mg CBD gummies are considered the perfect choice for first timers.
Everyone is different. Depending on weight, health conditions, if you have an empty stomach or had alcohol before taking cannabis edibles, the effects you will experience will be different, mild or strong. What we recommend you is to wait up to 2 hours to experience the full effects, and, if you feel like you need more, experiment until you find your “just right” dose. You can consume as many CBD gummies as you want daily, as long as you don’t exceed the dosage that is right for you. Like all cannabis edibles, CBD gummies are going through the digestive system. What it means is that the effects might take up to 2 hours to be felt, but it will last 4 to 6 hours. It is really important to remember, especially if the gummies you are taking also contain THC, which, contrary to CBD, might get you high.
CBD gummies side effects
CBD gummies are non-intoxicating, meaning it won’t get you high. It is recognized as safe but some mild side effects can occasionally be experienced, like fatigue, diarrhea, a change in appetite or in weight. If you feel like you are experiencing one of these side effects, pause intake, try another CBD source and check if you feel the same side effects. If that’s the case, CBD may be interacting with your liver enzymes and temporarily stop the liver from metabolizing other medications.
