When hemp became legal through the 2018 Farm Bill, multiple hemp-derived products suddenly hit shelves everywhere. One of these was the CBD. A cannabinoid produced by the hemp plant, CBD users report experiencing a relaxing effect and continued research demonstrates the many possible medicinal properties. Both factors allowed CBD to rise in popularity very quickly.
If you’ve started seeing CBD gummies and candy sold in stores, it’s one part of this ongoing trend. The reason hemp-infused candies are becoming so popular is because it’s one of the easiest (and tastiest) ways to ingest CBD, especially for first timers.
How is CBD in candy?
To understand the appeal of CBD candy, it’s important to understand where CBD comes from. CBD is a cannabinoid, a type of compound produced in the hemp plant. It’s important to note that CBD is not THC, the cannabinoid in marijuana that gets you high. CBD has no psychoactive effects whatsoever.
While you can ingest CBD by smoking hemp, it’s often stronger when added to products you eat or drink. You can add CBD oil, a more pure form of the compound to products like tinctures, capsules, and yes, gummy candies. These candies allow you to feel any potential benefits of CBD in a convenient and tasty package.
A popular way to consume CBD
There are many reasons why candies have become one of the most popular ways for people to consume CBD. Not only are they delicious, but they offer certain advantages over other methods.
There are still unfortunate social stigmas in some places associated with hemp and CBD. Candy infused with this popular cannabinoid offers a sweetly discreet mechanism for consumption. Having an option that doesn’t require you to smoke hemp makes it easier to consume CBD in any situation.
Eating something with CBD is also a little better for you in general. It’s definitely kinder to your throat than smoking, not to mention your lungs.
If you’re worried about your sugar intake, most hemp gummies aren’t made super sweet. This is because excess sugar interferes with our body’s ability to break down the CBD and feel its effects strongly. CBD candy just says ‘no’ when it comes to high levels of sugar.
Potential health benefits of CBD candy
As more research into CBD gets done, scientists are finding more potential in the medical community for the compound. This means you may feel certain effects when taking CBD candy yourself, including:
- Less stress
- Better sleep
- Less anxiety
- Reduced inflammation
- And more
Every user has their own experience with CBD, but many report feeling these types of benefits, at some level.
There’s also potential for CBD to work in the treatment of diseases like diabetes and possibly help keep your heart healthy from disease and failure.
These potential benefits are possible no matter in what form you prefer your CBD.
