If you’re looking for a tasty and easy way to consume hemp on a daily basis, most will agree that gummies are the best way to go. Gummies provide stellar compounds native to the hemp plant in a way that’s highly bioavailable, all while supplying your sweet tooth with the satisfaction that it so desperately desires.
As the hemp market continues to grow and expand, we’re seeing more innovative formulations within the industry than ever before. While once, long ago, there were few gummy options out there, things have changed dramatically in a short period of time. Nowadays, consumers can choose from a full variety of not just flavors but also milligram strengths, hemp strains, types of hemp extract and more.
Today, we’ll be shedding light on two particular categories of gummies that exist on the hemp market. But first…
Gummies: The Basics
Hemp gummies are a type of edible product that look, feel and taste just like gummy candies that we all used to savor back in the day. After all, they are candies by nature, except that they’re also infused with adequate doses of quality hemp. This means that while we indulge our taste buds’ most intense desires, we’re also feeding our body exceptional plant compounds that can provide us with their many fascinating and useful properties.
Hemp gummies are made by combining hemp extract with any number of ingredients that allow the concentrated compounds to take on a tasty gummy form. When we consume a hemp gummy, we experience long-lasting activation within the system due to the way in which it stays in the body for hours on end. For the compounds to become active, they must first take their time working through the gut tract and being properly processed by the liver. This is why it can take up to two hours for them to take effect, and why the effects tend to be subtle.
Most people use hemp gummies daily, because they allow them to maintain a consistent dose of hemp throughout the day, and because they’re so easy to take. Also, they’re very easy to travel with, and no one will deny that they’re very fun to consume because they let us treat ourselves to yummy confections.
As you can imagine, lots of companies these days produce their own versions of gummies. They vary in terms of potency, flavor, ingredients and more. Now, let us talk about three types of gummies that are becoming very popular among the world of edible hemp goods.
CBD gummies are kind of used as a blanket term to describe any hemp gummies that contain CBD. CBD is the leading compound in hemp, which means that anything that contains hemp flower extract naturally has a high level of CBD. But, CBD can come in the form of several extracts, which means that CBD gummies can offer different varieties of plant compounds.
- Full Spectrum CBD Gummies: Contain every compound in hemp, including that trace, non-psychoactive amount of THC.
- Broad Spectrum Gummies: Contain every compound except for THC, as it’s been carefully and thoroughly isolated and removed.
- CBD Isolate Gummies: Contain a very powerful dose of pure CBD without any other compounds, which is great for those who desire only this compound.
Most experienced hemp users find that they prefer one type of hemp extract over the other two, and so they seek this out. Just know that when you’re buying something called a CBD gummy product, it can contain any one of these three extracts. So, look at the product’s label to know which type of extract it contains.
CBG might sound unfamiliar to you, and we don’t blame you. We are all used to hearing about CBD, which is the leading cannabinoid in hemp. Cannabinoids are a class of compounds unique to cannabis, and they work with the body’s endocannabinoid system. The body’s endocannabinoid system consists of cannabinoid receptors all throughout the body, and these cannabinoid receptors receive cannabinoids and use them as needed. CBG is a cannabinoid just like CBD, and the endocannabinoid system processes it in its own unique way because it has its own unique properties.
Having properties different from CBG, some people are finding that it’s this compound that they prefer over all of the rest. For this reason, more hemp companies are finding ways to create CBG isolate products, which means that their products contain only CBG and no other hemp compounds.
Therefore, CBG gummies are like CBD gummies, except they just once again contain CBG. If you are more interested in CBG, you can do some research to learn more about its unique effects. Then, you can decide whether or not you wish to give CBG gummies a try.
Which Type of Gummy is Right for Me?
Well, we always suggest starting out with a full spectrum CBD option, as this doesn’t just provide you with CBD, but it also gives you CBG. Bear in mind, however, that CBG is not as prominent in hemp as cannabinoid, so you won’t be getting large doses of it. Still, this allows you to get an idea of how the whole hemp plant feels in your system, and then you can slowly customize your experience with individual compounds later on as needed.
Also, we always recommend researching different hemp compounds on your own in order to learn more about what they can do for you. Many of us are trying to accomplish something specific when we take hemp each day, and you may find that one particular compound is better suited for your individual needs than another. The more you understand about the chemical properties of individual hemp compounds, the more confident you’ll feel personalizing your experience with the many products that are available today.
And, remember that above all else, always go for quality gummies, no matter which type you end up choosing.
Now that you know more about the variety of gummies available, you can make a more informed choice that better suits your particular interests and goals with hemp. At Pure CBD Vapors, we offer an enormous range of hemp gummies containing all kinds of different formulations and hemp compounds.
