Because of CBD’s calming wellness benefits, CBD products come in formulations for everything from morning energy and focus to nighttime sleep support and more.** CBD gummies are a perfect example of this product diversity, with a wide variety of supporting ingredients. If you choose your CBD gummies carefully, you can create a daily routine that allows you to make the most of your gummies’ many health benefits throughout the day and night.**
In this article, we’ll discuss what CBD is and what exactly a CBD gummy is. We’ll look at the different formulas for CBD gummies and show you how to optimise your day by choosing the right CBD gummies for your needs.
Let’s begin with perhaps the most basic of questions: What is CBD?
CBD Gummies 101: What Is CBD?
CBD (cannabidiol) is one of over a hundred organic compounds produced by the cannabis plant, called cannabinoids. In this article, we’ll focus on the low-THC form of cannabis called hemp, since hemp is where we get the CBD used in all CBDfx products, including our CBD gummies. The hemp plant produces CBD and other cannabinoids for many reasons, including protecting the plant from inclement weather, insect predators, and grazing animals, and for attracting pollinators.
Your body also produces cannabinoids, which are called endocannabinoids. Your endocannabinoid system (ECS) helps the body to maintain homeostasis, or balance. When you take a CBD product, like gummies, the CBD helps boost the performance of the ECS, which in turn delivers a bevy of health and wellness benefits to you.**
Full Spectrum CBD vs Broad Spectrum CBD vs CBD Isolate Gummies
There’s more than one type of CBD to consider when selecting a gummy. In fact, there are three types of CBD that you’ll find in CBD products. Full spectrum CBD is the most robust of these CBD oil types. This oil contains all of the cannabinoids (including CBD), terpenes, flavonoids, and healthy fatty acids of the hemp plant.
Broad spectrum CBD is similar to full spectrum oil, only the detectable levels of THC found in full spectrum oil have been filtered out. Broad spectrum oil still contains nearly all of the compounds of the hemp plant, and is capable of delivering the Entourage Effect.**
The Entourage Effect is the phenomenon by which CBD and other hemp compounds, when consumed together, boost one another’s effects—delivering a deeper CBD experience to the user.**
CBD isolate is CBD with all other hemp compounds filtered out. As such, CBD isolate is 99% pure CBD. As you probably figured, CBD isolate does not deliver the Entourage Effect like the aforementioned CBD oils.
What Are CBD Gummies?
CBD gummies are sweet and chewy CBD supplements for adults. As one might expect, CBD gummies are not the same thing as regular gummy sweets. CBD gummies are a health and wellness product and should be regarded as such when you take them.**
Gummies vs Other CBD Edibles
All CBD edibles, such as CBD capsules and gummies, have certain things in common. Most notably, edibles travel through the digestive tract before the CBD (cannabidiol) can be absorbed into the bloodstream. This means that you might have to wait 30 minutes to two hours to feel the CBD effects, but those CBD effects can last longer than any other type of CBD product, up to six to eight hours.**
CBD gummies, though, have an advantage over CBD capsules and many other edibles since they have the benefit of sweet, delicious flavour. They also look like regular gummy sweets and can be taken discreetly, in case you’re concerned about others knowing that you’re using a hemp product.
CBD Gummies vs Other Types of CBD Products
People often prefer CBD gummies to other types of CBD products, such as CBD oil tinctures and CBD vapes, because gummies are convenient, mess-free, and deliver a consistent CBD dose in every gummy serving.

Shopping for the Best CBD Gummies
No matter which CBD gummies you choose, make sure you purchase gummies that are safe and effective. You can start by only buying CBD gummies made with CBD oil culled from organically farmed hemp plants. Hemp is a bioaccumulator, meaning that it absorbs whatever is in the soil surrounding the plant. If there are toxins in that soil (such as pesticides or heavy metals), you can be assured that the hemp plant will soak them up and pass them on to the CBD oil used to make your gummies.
Also, look for CBD gummies made with CBD oil that has been extracted from the hemp plant by means of clean carbon dioxide. Cheap solvent extraction methods can potentially leave behind residues in your CBD oil. CO2 extraction is clean and efficient, giving you a safer and more potent CBD product.
Lastly, make sure your CBD gummies are accompanied by a Certificate of Analysis (COA). This is a third-party lab report which will tell you how much CBD and other cannabinoids are in your gummies, and let you know if your gummies contain any of the toxins mentioned above. At CBDfx, we provide a COA for all of our products. Your safety and satisfaction are our top priorities!
