What are CBD gummies? Are there any health benefits?
CBD Gummies are edible candies containing oil from the cannabidiol (CBD). They come in a rainbow of CBD flavors, colors, forms and concentrations. Gummies provide a safe and easy way to consume CBD, and many manufacturers' effective marketing strategies mean that their popularity among long-standing CBD consumers as well as non-users has soared.
But because most CBD products are not FDA approved, strengths and purity will vary from brand to brand, and even within the same brand, so there is no guarantee that you will get what you think you are getting.
Are there any health benefits of CBD gummies?
CBD gummy manufacturers say CBD is effective in relieving anxiety, depression, pain, inflammation and sleep improvement. FDA approved a CBD drug (Epidolex) for treating epilepsy.
Studies into the efficacy of CBD oil, however, only tested pure CBD oil and not gummies. There are very few well-conducted studies, even for pure CBD oil, that support its obvious health benefits, while work is expected to ramp up now that laws differentiate between hemp and marijuana.
There is no scientific evidence that gummies function, although some people anecdotally claim a benefit and there is probably a strong placebo effect (the act of taking something to alleviate the condition makes you feel better even if there is nothing in that product). Be mindful that CBD is quite a bitter drug and many gummies contain large quantities of added sugar to mask the flavor.
Are CBD products legal?
Hemp-derived CBD products containing less than 0.3 percent of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) are federally legal; however, in some states they may still be illegal.
CBD products obtained from marijuana are illegal at the federal level; however, in some states, this may be permissible. Check your CBD products laws in the state.
Can CBD gummies make you high?
CBD gummies don't have any psychoactive properties so they won't give you that high.
CBD is extracted from hemp which is virtually THC-free. In marijuana, THC is the chemical that gives you a high. By statute, the hemp must contain no more than 0.3 percent THC to be considered hemp, otherwise, farmers can face prosecution under federal legislation.
CBD is the principal active ingredient in hemp, and CBD has no psychoactive properties. Instead, CBD has been credited with relieving anxiety, inflammation, insomnia, and pain, although it doesn't mean proven "credited."
What is the difference between CBD, cannabis, hemp, marijuana, and THC?
There is still a lot of confusion about what exactly CBD is, with many people thinking the same thing is cannabis, hemp, opium, CBD and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). They don't.
Cannabis is an herb, with two main types; Indica Cannabis and Sativa Cannabis. Although marijuana can be derived from both forms, hemp is derived only from family Cannabis Sativa. This means that although hemp and marijuana have some things in common, there are notable differences, with the most important being that hemp is nearly devoid of THC, which is the marijuana chemical that gives you a high. In fact, by law, the hemp must contain no more than 0.3 percent THC to be considered hemp, otherwise, farmers are at risk of federal law prosecution.
CBD is the principal active ingredient in marijuana, and CBD has no psychoactive properties. Alternatively, CBD has been credited with relieving anxiety, inflammation, insomnia, and pain, although there is currently little scientific evidence that CBD works, with the exception of epilepsy. Epidiolex Is a prescription CBD oil approved by the FDA for two rare and serious forms of epilepsy, Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS), and Dravet syndrome in June 2018. Many trials are being conducted to examine the effects of CBD for Parkinson's disease, schizophrenia, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, and anxiety.
Hemp is also a great resource, in addition to the medicinal uses of CBD, to produce 100 percent biodegradable, environmentally friendly items such as biofuel, building materials, clothing and paper.
