What Are CBD Gummies?

Cannabidiol (CBD) gummy bears, like many other forms of CBD products, come in the form of pressed resin or oil infused with the compounds found in the cannabis plant. Generally speaking, hemp-derived products contain low amounts of THC, which is a compound known for its psychoactive properties.

A normal dosage for a CBD gummy should be right around 10mg of CBD in each piece. Since the dosage may vary per person, it's best to start by consuming one or two pieces and wait up to an hour before taking more until you understand how CBD affects your particular body.

How Are CBD Gummies Made?

CBD gummies are made using different methods, but the most popular include the following:

CO2 extraction method, which uses carbon dioxide in high pressure and low temperature to extract CBD oil. This is generally regarded as the best method for producing highly pure CBD extracts.

Full spectrum CBD/cannabinoid process, which uses more than one extraction method for removing cannabinoids. This produces a potent and full-spectrum extract that contains a range of cannabinoids. It's important to note that not all manufacturers will list their cannabinoid content on the label or online, so most if not all of them are using the less-expensive method of CO2 extraction for CBD gummies production.
