Many adults in the UK use CBD to relax and enjoy a restful night of sleep, due to CBD’s calming effects.** CBD gummies are among the most popular of all CBD products, thanks to their mess-free convenience, portability, and delicious flavour. So, adding a sleep formula to these popular products makes a great deal of sense.
In this article, we’ll examine how CBD works, in particular for relaxation and sleep, and the different types of CBD oil that you can find in various CBD products.** We’ll also explore the different kinds of CBD gummies available, including CBD gummies for sleep and for other uses.** Lastly, we’ll show you what to look for when you shop for CBD products, including products for sleep, so that you choose a sleep CBD product that is safe and satisfactory.
Let’s begin with a basic, but pertinent question: What is CBD?
What Is CBD?
CBD, or cannabidiol, is a chemical compound found in the cannabis plant. As all of our products are made from the low-THC form of cannabis called hemp, our focus in this article will be on hemp-derived CBD.
CBD is one of a group of cannabis compounds, called cannabinoids. Besides CBD, the cannabis hemp plant produces over a hundred different cannabinoids, including THC (less than 0.2% THC, by law), CBN, CBG, and more. Unlike THC, CBD does not get you high. Instead, CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system (ECS), which helps the body to maintain homeostasis, or balance.** This interaction between CBD and various receptors in the endocannabinoid system produces a wealth of health benefits.**
Full Spectrum CBD vs Broad Spectrum CBD vs CBD Isolate
When you research CBD or CBD products, knowing which type of CBD your product contains can help you understand the effects you can expect when you use it.
Full spectrum CBD contains all of the cannabis hemp plant’s compounds, including all cannabinoids (including CBD and trace amounts of THC), terpenes, flavonoids, and health-friendly fatty acids. Broad spectrum CBD is the same hemp-derived CBD oil, only the detectable amounts of THC have been filtered out. Both types of CBD allow the user to experience the Entourage Effect.** This is the term used for the phenomenon by which CBD and other cannabis compounds, when taken together, actually bolster one another’s effects—giving you a deeper CBD experience.**
When shopping for CBD, you may also find products that contain a type of CBD called CBD isolate. CBD isolate is CBD only, with all other cannabis compounds filtered out, leaving you with a product that’s 99% pure CBD. CBD isolate does not produce the Entourage Effect, which is why we don’t use this type of CBD in our gummies.
What Is a CBD Gummy?
CBD gummies are sweet, chewy CBD supplements that come in a variety of CBD formulations. Many adults choose to take this type of CBD product because CBD gummies are mess-free, easily portable, and discrete. They also generally taste much better than CBD oil tinctures or CBD pills. Please note that CBD gummies are health supplements and should be treated as such.**

How to Find the Best CBD Sleep Products
When you’re shopping for CBD products, it’s important to keep a few criteria in mind.
First, make sure you only purchase products containing CBD oil derived from organically grown hemp plants. Hemp is a powerful bioaccumulator, meaning that it sucks up just about everything from the soil that surrounds it. So, if the hemp oil used in your product comes from a farm that uses pesticides and other potentially harmful chemicals, those toxins will wind up in the CBD oil used for your product.
You also want to make sure that the CBD brand you choose uses clean CO2 to extract the CBD oil from the hemp plant. Carbon dioxide doesn’t leave behind a chemical residue in the CBD oil, as do some solvents used by cheaper CBD brands. CO2 ensures clean CBD extraction, and it’s also more effective in extracting the CBD. So, you can potentially get a more potent CBD product when you go with one that contains CO2-extracted CBD.**
Lastly, every reputable CBD brand will back their products with a report called a Certificate of Analysis. This is an independent, third-party lab report that tells you how much CBD, THC, and other hemp compounds are in your CBD product, and alerts you to the presence of any of the toxins we mentioned above. At CBDfx, we back all of our CBD products with a COA. We want your CBD experience to be safe and satisfying every time!
