CBD gummies are quickly becoming a preferred choice for those who want to start enjoying all of the health benefits of CBD without the sometimes off-putting earthy taste that many tinctures contain. They are also a good choice for those who don’t want to be seen on their daily commute awkwardly trying to take the correct dosage of CBD via a traditional dropper under their tongue while simultaneously gaping with their mouths wide open at their fellow travelers.
The most appealing thing about CBD gummies is without a doubt their convenience and, of course, the fact that they are deliciously tasty. While CBD is already a mainstream natural health supplement; many people aren’t ready to be asked questions about why they are taking it, how it is helping them, and so on.
With gummies, all of this hassle is removed from the equation, and you can simply pop one in your mouth, kick back and wait for the wave of serenity to wash over you and keep you calm– even if you are right in the middle of an incredibly stressful hands-on task at work.
Why Choose Gummies Over CBD Oil?
Since CBD edibles have taken the market by storm, several newbies to the CBD scene have been left asking themselves the question why take gummies if CBD oil is the main product that everyone around the world seems to be talking about? It all comes down to a matter of personal preference and what you are hoping to get out of your CBD experience.
For example, if you are keen to get the exact dosage right, then gummies will offer you a convenient and accurate way of doing this as all reputable companies will state exactly how much CBD is in each gummy. Then there is the fact that they taste just like traditional gummy bears, but with one crucial distinction; CBD gummies are good for your health (no matter how many you choose to eat in a day) instead of being detrimental to it.
Generally speaking, CBD edibles take longer than CBD oil to kick in, but many people see this as an advantage (especially those who don’t necessarily want to have to continue dosing while out and about) due to the fact that the relief they provide lasts much longer than that you feel from taking a tincture. “Why is this important?” I hear you ask. Let’s look at an example.
Imagine you suffer from extreme social anxiety, and you are due to give a presentation in front of several people who you have never met before. When the time comes for you to get up on stage, you have no idea how things are going to go, or furthermore how long the whole ordeal is going to take- so, if you are taking CBD to calm your nerves you want to be sure that the effect is going to last for the duration of your speech, as you can’t exactly whip out a bottle of CBD oil mid-presentation to top up! This is the peace of mind that gummies can offer.
You will come to figure out the exact dosage you need to keep you calm for a particular amount of time. The effects of gummies last longer than that of a tincture, so you will get up on stage with the extra confidence that you have consumed sufficient CBD to see you through the ordeal.
Are CBD Gummies More Expensive and How Much Will It Cost to Add Them Into Your Daily Diet?Like many questions that arise surrounding the relatively new phenomenon of CBD products, there is no clear cut answer as to whether or not CBD gummies will be more expensive or cheaper than purchasing a traditional tincture.
First of all, everything depends on the quality vs. quantity. You might find an online store that sells gummies ridiculously cheap, but when you examine the ingredients and the source of the edibles, you will soon realize that it is a poor quality product, which is made from hemp that isn’t grown in the U.S in accordance with the 2008 farm bill. The same is true with tinctures.
The point is that if you want a high-quality product that is subject to third party lab testing and conforms with various rules and regulations imposed by the powers that be, CBD products of any kind are going to cost you somewhere around $60 per month based on daily use.
Most people find they need to take a couple of CBD gummies per day to really be able to feel the extent of the positive health benefits they offer, which works out around $2 per day. That’s less than a cup of take-out coffee, and it’s also much less than what you might pay for prescription anti-anxiety medication.
The funny thing about consumer culture is that as a rule of thumb, we seem to be put off by the price tags on items that actually benefit our health. Most people have no issue going to a bar for a drink at the end of a long day and dropping $10 or even $20 dollars on a fancy cocktail, but they balk at the sight of a $30 price tag on something that can make a positive improvement on their lives.
I suspect this is due to the fact that deep down we are all looking for instant gratification and our inherent impatience as a human race prevents us from investing in ourselves on a long- term basis because that would be selfish right?
The reality is that even though CBD is not yet classified as a medicine, far too many people have come forward to recount their own positive and sometimes life-changing experiences with this powerful therapeutic supplement for the rest of us to think that spending a couple of dollars a day on CBD gummies is an unnecessary expense.
