CBD gummy bears are quickly becoming one of the most popular methods of taking CBD (cannabidiol). That’s not surprising when you consider all the benefits they offer, the quick and hassle-free process of consuming them, and the precisely controlled dosage in each gummy bear.
Here are some of the most commonly reported benefits that you can expect from high-quality CBD gummy bears:
Relief From Anxiety
CBD has a well-established anxiolytic effect, based on many clinical studies, as well as wide-spread anecdotal evidence. The anxiety-lowering effects of CBD apply to many forms of anxiety, including, but not limited to social anxiety disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, and panic disorder.
Anxiety is probably the most common condition people take CBD for and report relief from.
Both clinical and anecdotal evidence exists to support the benefits of CBD for sleep disorders. And considering that up to 30% of Americans can be classified as meeting the criteria for such a disorder, it’s no wonder that it is one of the main reasons people take CBD for.
Edibles, like CBD gummy bears may be particularly useful for improving your sleep, because of their gentler, slower-release effect, when compared to instant-hitting delivery methods, like vaping.
Anti-inflammatory and Pain-relief Benefits
CBD is proven to reduce inflammation, in part by reducing the levels of pro-inflammatory cytokines.
It also directly reduces pain.
The fact that many painful conditions are actually inflammation-driven, makes CBD very suitable for chronic pain sufferers – not only does CBD directly reduce the levels of pain but it also deals with the inflammation, which may be at the underlying cause of the pain.
CBD can offer relief from many other health conditions as well.
Some people report that it eases their nausea during travel. Others claim that it greatly increases their focus while studying. And many people find that it helps reduce the symptoms of digestive disorders, such as IBS.
This is not surprising, considering how much inflammation is involved in the development of such conditions.
There is a multitude of longer-term, ‘second-order’ effects to be gained from CBD as well – for example, the improved sleep and lower anxiety levels, it produces can unexpectedly improve many other aspects of your health.
This cascade of positive effects may be responsible for the many anecdotal accounts, describing CBD as life-changing or even a miracle.
The research into the positive biological effects that CBD may exert is still in its infancy – even though clinical studies that are decades-old do exist, most of the research is being done in recent years and takes a long time to come to light.
There are still thousands of questions on the table now that can directly affect health. Some may ask if CBD has an effect on birth control, while others may be more concerned about cancer and a host of other serious diseases. The questions are endless.
Why Choose Gummies and Not Other CBD-Containing Products?
Here are some of the most common reasons people choose gummies over other, more complicated delivery methods:
A Precisely Controlled Dose. Gummy bears take all the guesswork out of taking CBD. The CBD content of hemp flower can fluctuate widely, depending on the particular plant it comes from, how long it has been sitting on the shelf, and the temperature at which it is smoked.
With CBD gummy bears, you don’t need to worry about that – each gummy delivers the same carefully-controlled CBD dose.
Can Be Taken Anywhere, Anytime. Gummies can be eaten right before bed to help you sleep, at particularly stressful times to help you relax, or when you want to take the edge off of a chronic pain condition that you may have.
Unlike most methods involved with inhaling CBD, there are no preparation steps, nor any equipment necessary.
The Cbd Is Protected by the Gummy. The soft body of the gummy protects the CBD from getting exposed to atmospheric oxygen and consequent oxidation and deterioration.
Great Taste: CBD oil has a bitter taste. The gummies mask that bitterness and taste great.
Doesn’t Ingested CBD Have a Lower Bio-Availability Compared to Vaporized, Inhaled CBD?
Even though studies sometimes find that CBD consumed in the form of edibles like gummy bears has a lower absorption availability compared to inhaled CBD, most of the anecdotal evidence still points to a strong beneficial effect, even in low-dose, oral supplementation of CBD,
There may be yet unexplored factors responsible for that phenomenon, one of which may be the positive influence non-absorbed CBD directly exerts on the digestive system.
From previous research, we know how important the digestive system is and how it can influence seemingly unconnected processes in the body.
For example, a large percentage of some neurotransmitters, like the feel-good chemical serotonin, is produced and stored in the gut, and not in the brain.
This is a complicated topic and warrants further research, that will hopefully come to light soon.
