If you’re considering CBD gummies for the first time as a herbal supplement there are a few things that you should know about it before diving into it. First, it’s important to know that CBD is a type of cannabinoid. Cannabinoids are produced naturally in animals and humans via the endocannabinoid system which is responsible for maintaining equilibrium and homeostasis within the body. Without our endocannabinoid system and the cannabinoid receptors within our complex system, we would not survive.
CBD is one of the most common types of cannabinoids and it is abundantly found in the marijuana plant. There are over 113 different types of cannabinoids that have been discovered and likely more of them out there waiting to be discovered within the thousands of different marijuana strains that are out there. Scientists and medical doctors that come from various specialties are studying cannabinoids and their effects on the human body. Many ongoing tests and case studies are being conducted to see what medical benefits can be achieved with patients that are given cannabinoids.
In early 2014, a young girl with severe cases of epileptic seizures was given CBD and showed drastic improvement with the frequency of seizures that she was going through. Since then the FDA has approved the first drug of its kind made from CBD intended to reduce epileptic seizures. CBD is also known to help with stress and anxiety in human and especially dogs that suffer from anxiety during storms or firework shows. Even Jeffrey Power who is the vice chairman of the American Veterinary Medical Association’s Council on Biologic and Therapeutic Agents gives credit to CBD for easing his St Bernard Ella’s anxiety during thunderstorms.
Not All CBD Gummy Products & Retailers Are the Same
Since CBD is still relatively new, it is not heavily regulated and customers should be careful about buying CBD from untrusted dealers or retailers. CBD isolates are meant to contain pure CBD and no other bi-products which makes it safe. If you purchase from retailers that are not trusted, you might get CBD that has bi-products within it or even THC the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana that can get you high and will show up on a drug test. Most full-spectrum CBD products contain less than .3% THC which is not enough to show up on a drug test or enough to produce any psychoactive effects.
We encourage all shoppers to research the company they’re considering buying from before purchasing any CBD products from them. This is important because CBD is still so new and there are many companies out there that will sell a product as “all-natural” but in reality, it contains bi-products that are not natural. At CBDGoldline.com We provide only the most high-quality CBD products that are 100% all natural.
As time goes on, more and more research is being done and the FDA is considering more approvals on different drugs that are made up of cannabinoids. At CBD Goldline, we are huge advocates of CBD and the medical benefits that it can provide. This is why we constantly send our products in for testing and provide authentic certificates of analysis for our customers to see the actual lab results of our products being tested.
Are CBD Gummies Safe?
In short, the answer is a resounding YES – they are perfectly safe. If you’re about to try CBD gummies for the first time and you’re worried about them being safe, you do not need to worry. CBD is 100% safe and there is no way to “overdose” on it. To date, there are no recorded incidents of individuals who have caused harm to themselves from taking too much CBD. In fact, the only possible negative effect that you could have from taking too much CBD is gaining weight because you’re eating too many gummy treats that contain sugar. Aside from that, CBD is perfectly safe and cannot harm you in any way.
Keep in mind that there are different types of CBD products like full-spectrum extract and isolate extract. With Isolate extract, you’re getting pure CBD but with full spectrum extract you are actually going to be getting all of the cannabinoids that are found in the marijuana plant. Remember that there are over 113 different cannabinoids and each one has its own chemical complexion along with medical benefits that should be researched. When you by an authentic CBD product, you should be able to see or request the corticate of analysis which will tell you exactly what cannabinoids are present in the extract as well as the volume or concentration amounts of each cannabinoid.
How Much CBD Should I Take?
The main question that we get from customers after purchasing CBD edibles from our online store is “what is the recommended dosage?”. There is no official recommended dosage amount or label with prescription facts telling you how much to take because its not a regulated product. The potency of CBD extract is usually measured in MG per serving. If you’re buying CBD gummies or gummy bears with CBD infused inside of them, typically the label will show you the MG per serving. In most cases, if you’re an adult and you weigh less than 200 lbs you can take 1 serving which can contain anywhere between 10 MG and 50 MG of CBD.
If you’ve been using CBD for a long time and you feel that you need to increase your dosage, we carry double strength CBD gummies which have twice as much CBD as the average CBD gummy. We also carry full spectrum reserve extract which is very potent and contains the full spectrum of cannabinoids that the Marijuana plant has with less than .3% THC in the extract. When using CBD, you should generally wait about an hour to let the CBD work its way through the blood stream. After about an hour you should start to notice the calming effects of CBD along with a reduction in pain and inflammation if you have any.
