CBD has been one of the hottest health and wellness supplements in the UK for the past few years. And among the most popular of all CBD-infused products have been CBD gummies. Many adults are curious as to the benefits of CBD gummies for overall health and wellness. These benefits boil down to two categories: boosting overall health thanks to CBD’s interaction with the endocannabinoid system and calming effects that can be beneficial for sleep and tension relief.**
Let’s begin our deep dive into these popular hemp products by getting a better understanding of just what CBD is. Then, we’ll dig into the wide assortment of CBD-infused gummies available to consumers.
Understanding CBD & CBD Oil
CBD (cannabidiol) is one of a group of compounds that come from the cannabis plant, called cannabinoids. For this article, we’ll focus on the low-THC form of cannabis, called hemp, from which all of our CBDfx CBD products are made.
CBD is considered a major cannabinoid, meaning that it occurs in higher percentages in the plant. But there are also over a hundred minor cannabinoids found in hemp, including CBG, CBC, and CBN. Unlike the other major cannabinoid, THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), CBD cannot get you high. Instead, CBD binds with receptors in the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS).** This system helps the body to maintain a healthy balance, or homeostasis. CBD’s interaction with the endocannabinoid system helps to bolster it, resulting in a number of wellness benefits.**
CBD oil is the oil that is derived from the hemp plant’s buds, leaves, and stalks. Full spectrum oil is the initial extract of the hemp plant. This robust oil contains all cannabinoids (including CBD and trace amounts of THC), terpenes, flavonoids, and healthy fatty acids. By law in the UK, those trace amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol must be less than 0.2%. Broad spectrum oil is the exact same oil as full spectrum CBD, but with all detectable levels of THC filtered out. This filtration process can also remove some of the other hemp compounds from the CBD oil. CBD isolate is CBD only, with all other hemp content removed (99% pure CBD).
The type of CBD used in your gummy, as we’ll see in a moment, can greatly affect your CBD gummy experience.
What Are CBD Gummies?
CBD gummies are sweet, chewy supplements that usually have a much more enjoyable flavour than CBD oil tinctures, CBD capsules, and other CBD consumables. Beyond flavour, CBD-infused gummies have other advantages over some CBD products. For one thing, gummies are easy to transport and are pretty much mess-free, so you can take your CBD-infused gummy anywhere. CBD gummies also look like regular gummies, which is helpful if you’re worried about other people seeing you take a hemp product. To be clear, though, CBD gummies are not a sweet like regular gummies. CBD gummies are a wellness supplement.**
The Benefits of CBD Gummies
As noted above, CBD gummy benefits fall into two categories. First, due to CBD’s interaction with the endocannabinoid system, CBD gummies are often taken to boost overall health and wellness.** Secondly, due to CBD’s calming effect, gummies with cannabidiol can be taken for tension relief and can be blended with other relaxation ingredients to create CBD sleep gummies.**

Why Do We Use Broad Spectrum CBD for Our Gummies?
Every gummy in our CBD gummies collection contains broad spectrum CBD. This spectrum of CBD oil, as noted above, is the same robust hemp oil as full spectrum, only with the detectable amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol filtered out. Filtering detectable amounts of THC from the gummies helps to minimize the risk of users testing positive for a drug test. Still, people who take a broad spectrum gummy should be aware that if you take this spectrum of CBD products regularly over a long period of time, you run the risk of THC build-up in your bloodstream, which might result in a false-positive drug test.
So, why not take a CBD isolate gummy instead? Unlike CBD isolate, broad spectrum oil contains most of the other compounds of the hemp plant, including cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, and healthy fatty acids. Each of these compounds has its own unique benefits, as well.** But taken together, CBD and these other hemp compounds can produce the Entourage Effect, wherein CBD and other hemp compounds, when taken together, actually bolster one another’s effects—giving you a higher potency CBD experience!**
How to Find the Best CBD Edibles & Other CBD Products
Hemp can absorb a great number of toxins from the soil. That’s why it’s essential for your health and welfare to only use organically grown hemp products. When you shop for gummies made with safely farmed CBD, you minimize your risk of consuming contaminants, such as pesticides, heavy metals, and other such toxins—as well as GMOs.
You’ll also want to shop for gummies containing CBD that was extracted with clean carbon dioxide. Unlike many solvents, which can leave behind a residue in your CBD oil, CO2 is clean, safe, and more efficient at extracting the CBD from the plant.
Lastly, make sure your CBD gummies are backed by a Certificate of Analysis (COA), which is a report generated by an independent, third-party laboratory. This report will tell you exactly how much CBD and other cannabinoids are in your CBD gummies, and it will tell you if your gummies contain any of the aforementioned contaminants.
At CBDfx, we insist on these criteria, which is why our CBD gummies are considered among the very best CBD gummy products on the market.
Final Thoughts on CBD & Gummies
Cannabidiol gummies are incredibly popular health and wellness products, and for good reason. An expertly formulated CBD gummy offers mess-free convenience and a pleasant flavour, in addition to the many benefits that come from taking CBD.** Many gummies also come with complementary ingredients to enhance your experience. When you shop for CBD gummies, remember the criteria we mentioned above so that your CBD experience can be as safe and satisfying as possible.
