It’s hard to resist the charm of CBD gummies. At this point, they’re everywhere. According to the Centre for Medical Cannabis, “six million people in the UK have tried CBD.” The numbers speak for themselves and prove that CBD is becoming a commonplace supplement all over the country (and many parts of the world!). The CBD market is growing exponentially and is expected to reach $20 billion by 2024. Numbers like this seem incomprehensible, but their vastness is matched by the wellness potential of products made with this remarkable cannabinoid.
As a result of CBD’s popularity, manufacturers have developed several different kinds of CBD products to meet our personal needs and preferences. This makes sense, because we’re all looking to get something different from our CBD experience. One of the main reasons people love CBD (and CBD gummies) is that it can give you a gentle calmness and feeling of well-being, but it doesn’t get you “high.” Instead, CBD produces effects that can support several aspects of daily living.
CBD gummies have the advantage of being convenient and discrete enough to carry anywhere, ensuring you get your daily serving of CBD without a hitch. Gummies with CBD also taste great, which is a distinct advantage over some CBD tincture oils.
You may find that you have to take more gummies to achieve the desired effect compared to CBD tincture oils. CBD gummies may also take a little longer to start working as well.
So, with all of this in mind, let’s explore the world of CBD gummies and explain why CBD will not get you “high.”
Can You Get High From CBD?
CBD gummies start with the agricultural production of cannabis hemp. It’s important that we distinguish cannabis hemp from its infamous relative, cannabis marijuana. Hemp is the term used for cannabis plants with less than 0.3% THC, the chemical compound that gets you “high.” Marijuana refers to cannabis plants with more THC, sometimes upwards of 30% THC. So, rest assured, hemp-derived CBD cannot get you “high.” In fact, if your CBD product does make you feel "high," it probably contains more than 0.3% THC — which means it isn’t a legal hemp-derived product at all.
The hemp crops are carefully cultivated, preferably with natural farming techniques, and then the crops are harvested and prepped for the CBD oil extraction process. It’s during this part of the process that different types of CBD oil are created.
Different Types of CBD Oil
Broad spectrum CBD oil and CBD isolate are the CBD oils available in the UK.
After the initial process that removes the hemp oil from the plant, broad spectrum CBD oil goes through an additional extraction process that pulls all trace amounts of THC from the oil. This is the recommended option for anyone who goes through routine drug screenings for school and/or work. Though some of the minor cannabinoids and terpenes are also removed because of this extra process, broad spectrum CBD still retains a robust ingredient profile.
CBD isolate goes through an additional winterization process that extracts any remaining cannabinoids, waxes, and terpenes from the oil. This creates oil with up to 99% purity and is an excellent option for those who only want CBD, with none of the other compounds found in the cannabis hemp plant.
For CBD gummies, we use broad spectrum CBD because it still retains a good cannabinoid profile, which allows you to experience the famed Entourage Effect while removing all traceable remnants of THC (less than 0.1%). The Entourage Effect is a term used to describe the phenomenon in which multiple cannabinoids are consumed and, instead of working merely in parallel with one another, the cannabinoids actually bolster each other’s performance — making each cannabinoid (including CBD) work harder for you.

It’s also helpful to take note of how your CBD gummies get their flavouring and colour. Some companies use heaps of artificial sweeteners and colouring agents, which can be harmful to your health. You’ll want to find a company utilizing all-natural sweeteners and colouring. This translates to an overall cleaner, more effective product.
And with no more than 0.3% THC, there’s no need to worry about any intoxicating effects from your CBD gummies.
How Many CBD Gummies Should I Eat?
Settling on a serving size depends on your tolerance, metabolism, and the amount of CBD each gummy contains. The recommended serving size for our CBD gummies is 50mg, or two gummies, though we recommend beginning with just one gummy to determine your tolerance.
Studies have shown you can take up to 1500mg of CBD a day without any side effects, but we wouldn’t recommend it.
How Often Can I Eat CBD Gummies?
CBD gummies are the perfect way to build your daily wellness routine. Some people take their full 50mg CBD gummy serving at the beginning of the day, while others stagger them: one CBD gummy in the morning and one in the evening.
You’ll find your tolerance level based on your physiology, experience and comfort. Keep in mind this will continuously fluctuate as you build a tolerance.
The Best Time to Take CBD Gummies
Some people like to start their day with a CBD gummy or two, while others like to take them before bedtime. Some people like to take their CBD gummies before tense or uncomfortable situations. Or, they use them for multiple reasons during the course of the day. It’s all up to you and what you’re looking to achieve.
Since CBD has a wide range of benefits, the possibilities are endless.
As you become more experienced with your CBD gummies, you’ll figure out what time of day meshes with your schedule and lifestyle.
