Cannabidiol, or CBD oil, is a cannabinoid, or naturally occurring biochemical found in cannabis plants. Cannabinoids interact with the endocannabinoid system in humans, and these reactions can affect sleep, mood, pain, and appetite. However, CBD does not produce any psychoactive effects on its own and will not make people feel high, as is the case with other cannabinoids like tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
CBD oil products come in several different forms. Many users prefer gummy edibles, or gummies, which are ingested orally. Most gummies contain between 5mg and 30mg of CBD, resulting in a mellow interaction that will not cause excessive drowsiness. Many users prefer to take more than one gummy at a time, but optimal dosage depends on the individual’s tolerance, as well as age, weight, and other factors.
CBD Gummies Buyer's Guide
Many people who use CBD oil prefer to ingest the substance orally in the form of an edible or capsule. Gummies are one of the most popular edible options for CBD consumers.
Often times, gummies are flavored with fruit juice and other natural ingredients, giving them a distinct, pleasant taste that masks the taste of CBD (which some find bitter and unpleasant). Gummies are also soft and easy to chew, making them a good option for people with dentures or other dental issues who are not well-suited for harder capsules.
Gummies come in a wide range of concentrations, from low-dose 1mg to 10mg options to high-dose gummies of up to 100mg per serving.
- Derived from non-GMO hemp
- Multiple flavor options
- 5mg to 50mg per gummy
- $0.14 to $0.25 per mg
These products cover a wide range of flavors, sizes, and doses. Those who prefer moderate dosages can choose from 10mg fruit bites, gummy bears, and amphibian-shaped Relax Toads. Options for low-dose gummy consumers include 5mg Terp Toads infused with aromatic terpenes, while stronger 25mg and 50mg gummies are also available for people who prefer higher concentrations.
Green Roads gummy flavors include strawberry, lemon, and orange, as well as sour. Customers can also choose from several different sizes, depending on how frequently they eat gummies. These include containers of 30 or 40 gummies, as well as smaller packs containing one, five, or 10 gummies. All Green Roads CBD gummies are derived from non-GMO hemp and extracted using C02.Buyer Shari G. writes:
"These bears have, by far, been the best CBD supplement I've ever had! The effects are felt not even a full 20min after taking a dose! I started coupling mine with the Strawberry terpenes and never looked back. Inflammation in my shins went down and if I feel a headache coming on, I pop one of these and I'm good for the day!"

Where CBDistillery really shines is in its wide variety of oil, but its gummies can't be ignored. At 30 mg a pop, these gummies double or even triple the dosage of competitors and do it for an extremely budget-friendly price. A few retailers will offer a single 50 mg gummy, but CBDistillery is one of the only ones to offer 30 mg edibles in a full bottle.
The organic, vegan ingredients, and naturally fruity flavors are also worth noting, as a lot of potent gummies are pounded with artificial flavoring and synthetic ingredients to mask the strong CBD taste. A sugary coating is also present to add some texture, but beware: It's a lot.Buyer Anita B. writes:
"Could not be more satisfied with the 30mg Night Time CBD Gummies. They taste very good and help with body aches in joints and muscles and the Melatonin that is included in each Gummie Bear helps support a good night's sleep. Highly recommend for the over 60 crowd with aches and sleep difficulties."

Do CBD Gummies Get You High?
CBD gummies produce feelings of relaxation in consumers; they also alleviate pains and other discomforts stemming from symptoms of different medical conditions. However, non-THC CBD gummies will not make consumers feel high in the same way that marijuana and other products with THC will. This is because CBD does not produce psychoactive effects like THC does.
And although CBD gummies may not produce a psychoactive high, they often cause consumers to feel sleepy. As a result, we advise consumers not to take CBD gummies if they plan to work with machinery, operate a motor vehicle, or engage in other activities that require full motor skills.
