CBD Gummies vs. CBD Oil
Before diving into the differences between CBD gummies vs CBD oil, it may be helpful to know more about CBD itself. Cannabidiol (CBD) is extracted from the hemp plant, which, unlike cannabis,contains only trace amounts of the psychoactive cannabinoid tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). There are many products on the market that are infused with CBD from vapes, lotions, and oils to chocolate, tarts, and gummies, that have been crafted to provide consumers with the associated benefits of CBD.
Out of all the CBD products available, the two most popular products are CBD oils and CBD gummies –probably because both are discrete. Oil is simple to take while you’re on a quick break, and gummies are easy to stash away in your purse, backpack, or briefcase. We’ll look at the additional benefits and differences of these two products so you can determine which is best for you.
Sometimes referred to as a CBD tincture, CBD oil is an oil that contains a cannabidiol (CBD) extract. The most effective way to take CBD oils is by placing drops of the oil underneath your tongue and letting it absorb into your bloodstream. This method is called the sublingual method, and it enables the CBD to get to work very quickly because it doesn’t need to travel through your digestive system first, and effects can be felt in as little as 15 minutes.
CBD oil tends to have a distinct hemp flavor that some describe as bitter. If you would prefer to mask the flavor, CBD oils can easily be mixed into a variety of drinks and foods such as coffee, tea, smoothies, and soups. Ingesting CBD oil instead of placing it under the tongue may delay its absorption into your bloodstream. Whether you choose to take your CBD oil sublingually or orally, it’s important to remember that as it is a natural product, it is important to store your CBD oil properly to prolong the life.
CBD gummies have become increasingly popular with consumers who are looking for a fun and tasty way to take a controlled dose of CBD. Gummies are usually infused with a CBD isolate which is pure CBD without any of the other naturally occurring hemp elements, making it perfect for those who want to avoid THC in its entirety. As expected, CBD gummies are enjoyed orally and therefore provide a delayed release into your bloodstream. Although CBD gummies don’t provide a quick response, they do last a bit longer as they are metabolized slower than an oil taken sublingually. Anyone with a sweet tooth will be reaching for CBD gummies over CBD oil, and with a range of fruity and tart flavors, they are a fan favorite.
CBD Strength and Dosing
Regardless of which product strikes your fancy, you should be aware of the strength of the product and the appropriate dosage. Droppers of oil can allow you to have more control over your dosage while gummies can provide you with more control over CBD levels. Either way, allow time for your body to digest and adjust before taking more CBD.
Choose What Works for You
Even with their differences, oils and gummies are both great products that allow consumers to enjoy the benefits of CBD.
