What is CBD?
CBD, or cannabidiol, is a non-psychoactive and active cannabinoid extracted from hemp and used in a wide range of lifestyle and wellness products. Although some CBD products contain trace amounts of THC (the well-known psychoactive cannabinoid), CBD itself does not cause a 'high', rather it can be used daily as a natural supplement for a number of reported benefits. In the UK, the content level of THC must be below 0.2% to be legal.
Some of the reported benefits of CBD, and why people choose this as a supplement, include:
To help relieve unwanted symptoms of pain
To help treat stress disorders and give a sense of relaxation
To help treat insomnia and sleep disorders
To aid sports recovery
To enhance mood
To accompany a balanced and healthy lifestyle

The benefits of using CBD gummies
CBD gummies are gummies that contain CBD, and there are many options for CBD enthusiasts to choose between to suit their own tastes and preferences. When choosing gummies, there are several benefits to consider that will help you pick the right product, and keep in mind that each product will come with its own recommended daily limit and we always advise you to follow the guidelines.
Here are some of the main benefits of CBD gummies:
Choose from a variety of strengths
CBD gummies are available in many strengths and different sized packs meaning that you can easily find gummies that match your individual needs. Strengths of CBD gummies generally come measured in mg per gummy, which means you can easily monitor your dose and work out how much CBD you require to alleviate your symptoms or to achieve your desired effects.
You'll find an abundance of different types of CBD gummies, so if you have a special dietary need or have specific lifestyle choices, then the chances are there will be CBD gummies to suit you. It is possible to choose from hundreds of amazing CBD sweets, CBD edibles and other delicious CBD treats, each with their own unique flavour and ingredient profiles. You will find vegan CBD gummies, sugar-free, no colours, THC-free gummies, full spectrum CBD gummies - the list goes on.
Taking CBD in gummies is easy and tasty - a way to get your dose of CBD without any fuss - and just one way to enjoy the potential beneficial effects of CBD, which can include a reduction in the symptoms of pain and stress, better sleep, help with sports recovery, the treatment of skin conditions, mood enhancement, and perhaps most well-known, help in feeling relaxed.
As mentioned before, CBD does not cause a 'high'. It potentially provides relief where needed and works with the Endocannabinoid System responsible for cognitive functions, immunity and inflammation. When you take CBD you may feel more relaxed or have a sense of wellbeing and that is because CBD helps to create homeostasis or balance within our bodies.
When you start taking CBD, you should start with small doses so that you can judge the impact it has on you personally, as the effects vary depending on a range of factors.

Taste and ease of use
One of our favourite things about CBD gummies and other CBD edibles is that they are simply delicious. You will find CBD sour cherries, watermelon slices, CBD gummy bears, jelly worms and the list keeps growing. If you're looking for a wellness product with natural flavours and natural fruit juices then our range of CBD gummies will not disappoint you.
CBD gummies are not only delicious, they are really simple to use. You can just pop them in your bag or lunchbox and have them whenever suits you best. No need for swallowing pills or dropping a tincture or oil in your mouth - enjoy your wellness routine to its fullest by using CBD gummies.
You will find that all of the top manufacturers of CBD gummies and edibles state the dose of their individual gummies or amount of CBD per pack on your chosen product's packaging. There are many strengths to choose from and you can pick a gummy that matches your needs or, if you require a higher dosage but enjoy a good sweet then you can choose to eat multiple lower dosage gummies.
Potential for prolonged effects
CBD gummies and edibles are swallowed and must be metabolised. This means that they can take anywhere from 40 minutes to 2 hours until the full effects can be felt. Although this means a little prior planning or awareness of the times when you will need relief, it does mean that the CBD continues to work for a prolonged period of time. Whereas CBD vapes and some other highly bioavailable CBD products can work extremely quickly, they don't necessarily provide a slow burn or long release, and this is where CBD gummies come into their own.
As they can work for a long time and often only need to be taken once or twice a day, you have plenty of time in your day to enjoy the effects without the need for taking them throughout the day.
You will find that many of the best CBD gummies available are very affordable and you can make huge savings on large packs, multi-buys and with the latest deals in our online CBD shop. We offer fair and competitive pricing on the finest CBD gummies and other CBD edibles, like brownies and cookies, made by the top manufacturers from around the globe. Take a look today!
CBD gummies vs. other consumption methods
There are many types of CBD product available and each has its own merit and application; some products boast potency and fast-acting effects, while others boast flavour, or other health supplement additions to aid the effects.
CBD gummies are an easy-to-use and effective way of getting your CBD dose, although not the fastest working, they are one of the most popular among CBD users. In comparison, products like CBD vapes are extremely fast-acting but do not have the prolonged effects of a CBD edible or gummy. Products like vapes may not be suitable for a large percentage of users due to the effects of inhaling vapour and the additives used to make the CBD vaporisable. In a time where we are becoming more health conscious and turning toward a healthier lifestyle, we seek to avoid products that may have other effects on our health.
If you're looking for a CBD product that is easily incorporated into your daily routine and simple to use then gummies are quite possibly the most easy and enjoyable way to do it. Other products like CBD oral oils have to be held under the tongue or dropped into food and this isn't always possible to do depending on where you are. CBD oils and capsules are also more obvious, so eating a CBD edible or gummy treat will draw less attention - a bonus if you want to be discreet about your ailment or pain.
How to integrate CBD gummies into a wellness routine
It has never been easier to incorporate a supplement into your routine, and CBD gummies tick all of the boxes when it comes to ease of use when including something new into your day. It is as simple as popping your favourite CBD gummy into your pocket, bag or lunchbox and eating it as required.
When adding CBD to your routine for the first time, it is always recommended to consult a healthcare professional and to start with a low dosage which you can gradually increase until you reach your desired effects. Each product generally comes with a recommended daily dosage and a daily limit, and if you find that your CBD product is not providing the relief you require then you could try upping the strength of the product you use over time.
It is important to use your CBD routinely to get the maximum benefits, this will also help you to understand how much CBD you require and give you an idea of the strength you need. Use your other wellness practices as a scheduled time to take your CBD so that you're giving your body a big boost, whether it's meditation, yoga, a morning run, or whatever works for you.
