Original Source: Essential Tips for Buying Hemp Buds

Cannabidiol (CBD) continues to trend because of the numerous health benefits that are associated with it. CBD is believed to be good for treating chronic pain and relieving stress among its other benefits. Although the CBD market is quite large, it takes some experience to find the best hemp buds out there for sale. Because they look like marijuana, which is a strictly controlled substance, you may find it hard to purchase hemp buds in your area. Here are some top tips to help you find and buy the best hemp buds (flowers).

Study the CBD laws in your local region

In recent years, many countries including the United States and Canada have passed laws legalizing CBD and related products. However, CBD remains illegal in some countries such as Singapore. Different countries take different positions regarding cannabidiol, and whether its products should be legalized. To avoid getting yourself into trouble, always check your local laws to be sure you can buy or use CBD. In some countries, hemp dealers are required to obtain licenses and permits before they can grow or sell hemp buds.

 Look for organic hemp buds

Quality matters for CBD hemp consumers’ experience. It’s better to order your products from the most reputable brands in the business. The best hemp companies grow their plants naturally in safe and controlled environments. You may not want to buy hemp buds that have been farmed with pesticides and other unnatural chemicals. Expert hemp farmers produce pest-resistant hemp buds without using chemicals. Go for organically grown hemp buds that meet the necessary legal standards. You can also get more tips on hemp buds based on this article.

Research the sellers’ website and read the product labels

If you’re ordering your hemp buds online, you should check out the reviews on the seller’s website, and also the product labels. Top hemp dealers have a higher number of positive reviews (recommendations) on their websites. Reliable companies will readily give you the necessary information you need to determine the quality of their products. You may also want to ensure that the hemp buds are stored under the right conditions.

Consider the levels of THC and CBD

Different hemp flower strains will contain different concentrations of cannabidiol and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Under normal circumstances, CBD flowers contain about 3-10%+ CBD. If the CBD content is high, that means more health benefits for you. However, it’s also important to consider the THC levels as well.

In most European countries, pure CBD products should not contain over 0.2% THC. In the United States, it’s unlawful for CBD hemp buds to contain over 0.3% THC. Anything above that threshold could land you in deep trouble with the law. Always ask the retailers to specify the THC and CBD levels of their products before you place your order.

Terpene profile

Terpenes are chemical compounds that can be found in hemp plants. These aromatic compounds are responsible for determining the taste, smell, and overall quality of the CBD flowers. There are over one hundred terpenes in hemp. However, only about 10 terpenes account for the plant’s profile.

Since individual terpenes have a unique therapeutic significance, you need to know what’s beneficial to you before you choose your buds. For consumers who are hoping to manage their anxiety with hemp buds, they may want to look out for a-pinene and limonene-rich hemp strains. Terpenes such as myrcene may also be good for pain relief and inflammation.


It’s crucially important to buy your hemp buds from licensed and reputable sellers. This way, you will get good quality hemp flowers for the money. High-end hemp buds are well-trimmed, grown organically, and stored appropriately. Finally, always find out whether it’s legal to use hemp buds in your area before you make your purchase decision.

Leaders in Infused Products Manufacturing: Part 4

Cannabis infused products manufacturing is quickly becoming a massive new market. With companies producing everything from gummies to lotions, there is a lot of room for growth as consumer data is showing a larger shift away from smokable products to ingestible or infused products.

This is the fourth article in a series where we interview leaders in the national infused products market. In this third piece, we talk with Stephanie Gorecki, vice president of product development at Cresco Labs. Stephanie started with Cresco in 2019 after transitioning from an award-winning career in traditional foods CPG. She now heads up product development where she manages R&D for Cresco, a multi-state operation with tremendous SKU variety.

Next week, we’ll sit down with Lisa McClung and Glenn Armstrong from Coda Signature. Stay tuned for more!

Aaron Green: Stephanie, how did you get involved at Cresco Labs?

Stephanie Gorecki: A few years ago, CBD became the most talked about ingredient in the food industry. CBD-infused food headlines appeared in most of the trade magazines. I have always been curious about working in the cannabis space, and not just with CBD, but THC and other cannabinoids. I researched technical seminars and came across the cannabis infused edibles short course put on by the Institute of Food Technologists.

Stephanie Gorecki, Vice President of Product Development at Cresco Labs

I attended the short course in April of 2019. I realized that to be hands-on with cannabis in the near future, I would need to join an organization that was already in the space. The space was highly regulated which meant that research in the mainstream food and beverage space was limited.

Immediately following that seminar, I began to look for opportunities near where I lived. That’s when I came across the Cresco Labs career opportunity. The Director of Food Science position appeared to be a good match. I applied for the position and went through the interview process. Approximately two months after attending that seminar, I joined Cresco Labs.

Aaron: Awesome! It’s a cool story. In your role, how do you think about developing products that differentiate in the market?

Stephanie: There are many opportunities for brand differentiation in cannabis right now. There is a focus on high bioavailability and water solubility and how that translates to onset times once consumed. Many of these technologies utilize ingredient technologies and systems that I have experience with from my past work in the flavor industry.

Gummies and jellies are a great infusion matrix to start with because of their shelf-life stability. There are a variety of formulation techniques that can be used to deliver on product differentiations. There is an abundance of flavor varieties, colors, processing steps and cannabinoid ratios that can be baked into a formula to make that product line unique.

Here in the cannabis space, SKU variety is essential. It’s exciting to be a part of a company where we develop products that appeal to a variety of customer wants and needs.

Aaron: In that vein, what’s your process then for creating a new product?

Stephanie: I’ll start with how we develop an edible. Most of my background is in this type of product development, but the same process is applied to how we develop and extract vape, topical, flower SKU, or ready-to-smoke type products. We follow a similar stage/gate process utilized by most CPG companies.

Marketing typically presents our product development team with a brief on a new concept based on how they’ve read the needs of the market. There are opportunities for us to come to marketing with ideas for innovation, too. The product development team regularly works in our processing facility, so we as a team are aware of the different capabilities of each state and production line. During the briefing phase, we determine what is needed to be achieved and the parameters that the team would like the new product to deliver on.

For edibles, we begin our development work at The Hatchery. The Hatchery is our non-infused product development space that we utilize outside of our processing facility. In this space, we have several pieces of pilot equipment that allow us to scale and create prototypes that are highly representative of what our finished product will look like. For vapes, flower SKUs and RTS (ready-to-smoke) products, development and processing trials happen within our cultivation center.

All infusions are conducted in our licensed processing center. We also conduct stability testing and analytical testing in-house on our products. Our analytical lab is amazing – we have talented chemists and the ability to run GCMS, HPLC, microbiological testing, and many other analytical tests that are important for ensuring consistency and product uniformity.

Aaron: Can you expand on a point about testing? How do you think about testing at the different points in your manufacturing or production process?

Stephanie: Testing comes in several forms. We focus heavily on analytical testing since that does not involve product consumption. Potency uniformity and consistency is critical for edibles. For infused products, we have one shot at hitting our potency – infusion science is extremely important for us. Our gummies and chocolates cannot be re-worked, so hitting our potency range on the first attempt is important. If we miss the target, the product has to be destroyed.

We have methods developed to conduct in-process potency testing where we can. With the processes and infusion methods that we have implemented, we are rarely outside of our targeted potency ranges.

Aaron: Okay, awesome, then, can you walk me through your experience with one of your most recent product launches?

Stephanie: We recently launched Mindy’s Dark Chocolate Peppermint Bark, a limited time offering for our Mindy’s chocolate line. There’s a series of commercialization trials that we will conduct prior to launch. We use these trials as an opportunity to train our production teams on the new manufacturing instructions and processes.

When it comes to launching products, our technical teams are very hands on with new product introductions. Since we cannot manufacture product in one state and ship it to another state, we have to build processing centers and secure the proper licenses in every state that we’d like to operate in. When we have a new product ready to launch in a new state, our team works with Operations on the tech transfer piece. We’re there on-site during launches to oversee and train on the entire process until our teams are comfortable with manufacturing and packaging the new SKUs.

We monitor launches carefully to ensure product looks as it should before and after leaving our facility for sale in licensed dispensaries across the state. When there are opportunities to optimize a process post-launch, we will do what we can to make the process work as well as possible for the teams producing our products.

Aaron: Okay, so next question is, how do you go about sourcing ingredients for your infused products?

Stephanie: We manufacture our oils and extracts in house, and then source other ingredients externally. We have a supplier quality assurance process for new supplier approval, and we have documentation needs that we need each supplier to be able to deliver on.

Several of our suppliers have invested in research and development of products that will help us to meet our deliverables in the cannabis industry. Our suppliers, at times, have provided applications support in order to help with our speed to market and early phase prototyping. These types of partnerships are essential to us being able to make quick modifications and decisions on ingredients such as flavors and colors.

Aaron: Can you give me an example of a challenge that you run into frequently? This could be a business challenge or a cannabis-related challenge.

 “I’m a scientist at heart. I look forward to more spending on cannabis research to show how THC and other cannabinoids can be used to treat a variety of conditions.”Stephanie: A big challenge for us and other multi-state cannabis operators are the variations in compliance regulations state-to-state. We have compliance managers in every state who work to ensure we are meeting all of the state regulations. Our packaging reviews are in-depth because of all the language that needs to be included on our packaging.

Each state needs its own packaging with proper compliance labeling. Some states require a cannabis warning symbol of a certain type. If we sell Mindy’s Gummies in 8 flavors and THC mg SKUs in four states, that is 32 different pieces of artwork that need to be managed and cross-checked for accuracy. We have 32 separate pieces of packaging for this one line of products. We have many lines of products with multiples strains (flower and vapes) and flavors (edibles).

Aaron: You mentioned packaging, do you do all of your packaging in house?

Stephanie: We design our packaging artwork in-house. We have a creative team who works on our product artwork, and then a team of cross-functional members tasked with packaging editing and review. Packaging reviews go through multiple rounds before being released for printing. We source a variety of packaging depending on the needs of the product going into the packaging. For edibles, our packaging has to be opaque. Product cannot be seen through the packaging in most states. This is great for our products that are made with natural colors that may be light sensitive.

All of our packaging needs to be child resistant. This limits the amount of packaging variety that we have, but this is a big opportunity for packaging developers. We want and need more sustainable forms of packaging that are differentiated from other packaging forms currently on the market.

Aaron: What trends are you following in the industry personally?

Stephanie: Cannabis trends that are of interest to me personally are fast-onset and water solubility technology. There have also been many discussions surrounding micro cannabinoids and how those can be blended together to drive customer experience.

There are traditional food trends that also impact how we formulate. Our Mindy’s Edibles line is flavor forward. The flavors are sophisticated. In the Mindy’s line, you won’t find a generic orange or grape flavor. Instead, you’ll find a Lush Black Cherry or Cool Key Lime Kiwi Flavor. This flavor development work starts with Mindy Segal, who is the face and talented James Beard award-winning chef behind our Mindy’s Edibles line of products.

Aaron: Okay, so the last question I have for you is, what are you interested in learning more about?

Stephanie: I’m a scientist at heart. I look forward to more spending on cannabis research to show how THC and other cannabinoids can be used to treat a variety of conditions. People use cannabis for many reasons: to relax, to ease aches or pains, etc. It’s exciting to lead part of our technical team during a period of time where cannabis is rapidly growing and is of great interest and increasing acceptance across our country and in the world.

Aaron: Okay. So that’s it. That’s the end of the interview!

Best CBD Oils and Gummies of 2021

Best CBD Oils and Gummies of 2021

Original Source: Best CBD Oils and Gummies of 2021

CBD is increasingly popular among the general population. An astounding 64 million Americans have tried at least one CBD product. Meanwhile, 64% of seniors say that their quality of life increased after adding CBD to their diet. If you’re thinking of trying CBD, check out our list of brands offering the best CBD oils and gummies. 

Why CBD?

CBD (cannabidiol) is one of the many cannabinoids found in the hemp plant. However, unlike THC (another hemp cannabinoid), CBD won’t get you high. 

The World Health Organization has confirmed that CBD isn’t psychoactive. It maintains that “to date, there is no evidence of public health-related problems associated with the use of pure CBD.” 

At present, hemp-derived CBD is legal at the federal level. At the state level, the question of legality is based on whether individual states classify CBD as a controlled substance. That said, CBD can have a positive impact on both humans and pets.

According to studies, CBD can help with anxiety, insomnia, and pain. Along with its non-psychoactive properties, CBD also has very few side effects. In rare instances, it can inhibit the metabolism of medications, leading to negative side effects.

If you’re considering CBD, it’s important to know that the FDA doesn’t regulate its use. Often, taking the right dosage may come down to trial and error. To protect yourself, be sure to consult your doctor before adding CBD to your diet. And — once you’re given the all-clear — choose products from trusted brands. 

Best CBD Oils of 2021

First up is CBD oils. These are usually taken under the tongue and are relatively fast-acting. They come in various flavors.

Best Overall: MedTerra Immunity+

To deliver value, MedTerra has infused beneficial natural ingredients into each CBD product to assist you in your health goals.

Its Immunity+ product line not only makes you feel good but can also keep you from getting sick. Ingredients like elderberry, echinacea, Vitamin C, ginger root, ashwagandha, reishi mushrooms, and lemon balm can help you combat stress and boost your body’s defenses.

MedTerra also adds premium quality CBD to each product. Finally, MedTerra is a trusted provider due to its commitment to third-party testing and supply chain transparency.

Pros Cons
Premium quality CBD. Immune boosting. Stress-reducing. 100% natural ingredients Higher cost. Non-essential ingredients add little value

Best Mid-Range: Medterra Ultra Broad Spectrum Liquid CBD Capsules

CBD oil doesn’t have to be taken sublingually or under the tongue only. For those who can’t stomach CBD in liquid form, MedTerra offers a vegetable capsule option. 

The capsules dissolve in the body, so you don’t get that hemp aftertaste.

All Medterra products are made in the United States and are non-GMO. In addition, these capsules don’t just make it easier for you to integrate CBD into your life.

The 10:1 ratio of CBD to other cannabinoids also delivers a stronger entourage effect, heightening your feelings of well-being. Available in 25 or 50 mg doses, Medterra’s Ultra Broad Spectrum Liquid CDB capsules allow you to take exact amounts each time.

Best Value: Plain Jane Natural CBD Oil

Plain Jane sells two types of CBD oil: full-spectrum and isolate. The latter contains only two ingredients, making it one of the purest CBD oils on the market. Specifically, the 1 oz bottle contains CBD extract and MCT oil, which studies show is helpful in promoting weight loss.

Meanwhile, the full-spectrum CBD oil leverages the entirety of the hemp plant, so you get the full range of cannabinoids and terpenes. Full-spectrum CBD oil also has less than 0.3% THC. No matter which product you choose, each full dropper contains about 66 mg of CBD oil.

Pros Cons
Little to no taste. Affordable price. No artificial ingredients No variety in CBD oils

Best CBD Gummies of 2021

If CBD gummies are more your style or you’re looking to introduce CBD to your kids, there are some great options. These do take a bit longer to work but are often easier to handle. 

Best Overall: MedTerra CBD Gummies Keep Calm

Many people use CBD for mood balance, mental clarity, and calm. If you’re looking to relax, these gummies can help. MedTerra combined the amino acid L-Theanine with CBD to promote intense feelings of well-being and happiness.

These gummies also contain no high fructose corn syrup or gelatin. Each gummy has 25 mg of CBD and 50 mg of L-Theanine and is naturally flavored to taste like tropical fruit. So, you’ll get a burst of citrus flavor with every bite. 

Pros Cons
Safe alternative to prescription medication for anxiety relief.. Natural ingredients. No high fructose corn syrup. Doesn’t cause drowsiness No CBD-only gummy option

Best Mid-Range: Medterra CBD Gummies Sleep Tight

Another MedTerra product, these gummies will help you get a good night’s rest. Reviewers say that they fall asleep quickly after taking them. Best of all, they wake up refreshed and experience no grogginess the next day.

The gummies also contain natural sleep aids such as lemon balm, chamomile, and melatonin. In fact, you get 3 mg of melatonin per serving. Not only do these strawberry-flavored gummies taste great but they are also good for you. Each gummy has 25 mg of CBD. Add them to your nighttime routine for a great night’s sleep. 

Pros Cons
Added natural ingredients help promote sleep. No drowsiness No full-spectrum version

Best Value: Plain Jane Gummies

Product Insert

These fruit-flavored gummies are 25 mg each, the perfect dose for children who may require a calming touch. They are hemp-derived and have no THC in them. So, you don’t have to worry about anyone getting “high.” These gummies are also infused with MCT oil.

Pros Cons
Safe to use with kids. Convenient, bite-sized gummy. No artificial ingredients. Promotes better sleep May make you drowsy

Other CBD Products To Try in 2021

If you’d like to try other CBD products, MedTerra has broad-spectrum CBD oils in various flavors, CBD oil for pets, and CBD supplements. It also offers CBD tinctures, capsules, and topicals.

Meanwhile, Plain Jane offers CBD vapes, edibles, and topicals. No matter which brand you choose, you’ll get diverse choices in CBD products.

NCIA Publishes Environmental Sustainability Recommendations

Earlier this week, the National Cannabis Industry Association (NCIA) published its recommendations for improving environmental sustainability in the cannabis industry. The report, titled Environmental Sustainability in the Cannabis Industry: Impacts, Best Management Practices, and Policy Considerations, was developed by their Policy Council along with experts in the field of environmental sustainability.

The 58-page report is quite comprehensive and covers things like land use, soil health, water, energy, air quality, waste and the negative effects of an unregulated market. While the report goes into great detail on specific environmental policy considerations, like recycling, water usage, energy efficiency and more, it makes a handful of overarching policy recommendations that impact environmental sustainability on a much more macro level.

The report mentions developing a platform for sharing information in the national cannabis industry. The idea here is that information sharing on a national scale for things like energy use can be used as a communication tool for regulators as well as a tool for companies to collaborate and share ideas.

The second more overarching policy recommendation the NCIA makes in this report is “to incorporate environmental best practices and regulatory requirements into existing marijuana licensing and testing processes.” This would help streamline and unify regulations already in place and keeps sustainability in the discussion from the very start.

The last major policy recommendation they make is for incentive programs. They say that governments should incentivize cannabis businesses to operate more sustainably and “prioritize funds provided to businesses where barriers exist to entering the market, such as small- or minority-owned businesses.” The report adds that this could essentially kill two birds with one stone by promoting environmental sustainability and diversity at the same time.

Kaitlin Urso is the lead author of the report and executive project and engagement manager for the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. She says that these policy recommendations were designed to benefit everyone. “A successful, socially responsible cannabis industry will require best practices for environmental sustainability. This paper is a vital first step in that effort,” says Urso. “This is important, ongoing work that will benefit everyone. The NCIA’s paper on environmental sustainability is going to inform how we approach important questions related to the future of the cannabis industry.”

The Cannabis Industry, After the Election

While the 2020 Presidential election didn’t exactly end up in a clear landslide victory for the Democrats, there is one group that did well: the cannabis industry.

The results clearly show that the expansion of cannabis is a recognizable part of today’s society across the United States. States like New Jersey, for example, partly thanks to New York and Pennsylvania—which already allow the use of medical cannabis—traffic will start to force the state of New York’s hand and that’s a big chunk of the population of the Northeast.

If the question of legalization was on the ballot, it was an issue that overwhelmingly succeeded in delivering a clear mandate. Adult use of cannabis passed handily in Arizona, Montana, South Dakota and as mentioned above, New Jersey, and was approved for medical use in Mississippi and South Dakota. 

With only 15 states remaining in the union that still outlaw the use of cannabis in any form, the new reality for the industry is here. All of these outcomes show promise as the industry’s recognition is growing. 

Election outcomes and the position of the average American on cannabis

Americans are definitely understanding, appreciating and using cannabis more and more. It is becoming a part of everyday life and this election’s results could be the tipping point that normalizes the adult use of cannabis. It is becoming more widely understood as an effective and acceptable means to help manage stress and anxiety, aid in sleep and general overall wellbeing. 

Voters in New Jersey overwhelmingly passed their adult use measure

This image of cannabis is aided by the many different forms of consumption that exist now: edibles, transdermal, nano tech, etc. No longer does a consumer have to smoke—which isn’t accepted in many circles—to get the beneficial effects of cannabis. 

Knowledge expansion is going to move these products across state lines and eventually, the federal government will have to take notice.

Do Democrats and Republicans view cannabis through the same lens?

Cannabis is and will always be state specific. Republicans in general tend to be a little bit more cautious and there are a lot of pundits who believe that as long as the Republicans control the senate, there isn’t much of a chance for federal legalization.  

President-Elect Joe Biden & Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris

There is some hope, however, that the industry will get support from the Biden administration. While President-Elect Biden has been on record as being against legalization of cannabis at a federal level, even he will eventually see that the train has left the station and momentum continues to build. In fact, Biden’s tone has changed considerably while he running for president, adding cannabis decriminalization to the Biden-Harris campaign platform.

Ultimately, how cannabis is viewed from each side of the aisle matters less than how it is viewed at the state level. 

Cannabis reform under Biden

Biden had an opportunity to legalize cannabis federally in the U.S. during the Obama administration and it didn’t happen. It’s clear that the mandates of the Biden-Harris administration are going to be overwhelmed by current issues, at least in the beginning: COVID-19, the economy and climate change, to name but three.

What will be interesting is if the Biden-Harris administration goes to greater lengths to decriminalize cannabis. For example, cannabis is still a Schedule 1 drug on the books, which puts it in the same class as heroin. Biden couldn’t unilaterally remove cannabis from all scheduling, but his government could reschedule it to reduce the implications of its use.  

This could, however, create more problems than it solves: 

“It’s generally understood, then, that rescheduling weed would blow up the marijuana industry’s existing model, of state-licensed businesses that are not pharmacies selling cannabis products, that are not Food and Drug Administration-reviewed and approved, to customers who are not medical patients.

Biden rescheduling cannabis “would only continue the state-federal conflict, and force both state regulators and businesses to completely reconfigure themselves, putting many people out of business and costing states significant time and money,” as Morgan Fox, chief spokesperson for the National Cannabis Industry Association, said in an email on Monday.” (Source) 

In reality however, there is little chance that Biden will spend any political capital that he has, particularly if the Senate remains in Republican control, dealing with the legalization of adult use cannabis.

What needs to happen for legalization to become a reality

Outside of the law, if Trump suddenly decided to legalize adult use cannabis before leaving the White House, the states would still need to agree on issues such as possession, transportation, shipment and taxation.  

It’s clear that further normalization of cannabis use is required—which will likely take a good couple of years—in order for it to become as understood and as simple as wine, liquor or cigarettes.

Beyond that, it’s Congress that dictated that cannabis be illegal at the federal level and it will have to be Congress that makes the decision to change that. Even the Supreme Court has been reluctant to get involved in the question, believing this to be an issue that should be dealt within the House.

What does all of this mean for investment in the cannabis industry?

Cannabis should be part of most long-term investors’ portfolios. Like a group of stocks in a healthy market with the right balance sheets, cannabis is an expanding industry and growth is there.  

Whether or not this is specifically the right time to invest, it’s always important to evaluate each stock or each company individually, from the point of view of the merits of the investment and investment objectives, as well as risk tolerance perspectives.  

There isn’t any unique or special place to buy into the cannabis industry, unless it is connected to some new real estate or other opportunity that is COVID-19 related. This moment in time isn’t really any different from any other when it comes to the opportunity to own some cannabis stocks. It’s always a good time.

The short term returns of this market shouldn’t be speculated upon. There are just way more factors than the fundamentals of a company that will affect the short-term play. The country is in a transition of power, in addition to much international change taking place that can also contribute to returns in the short term, making speculation unhelpful.

The cannabis market in 2021

The cannabis industry is likely to continue to expand and grow with the select companies acquiring more and more and getting back to their cash flow. Some companies will slowly be going out of business and/or will be acquired by others going into a certain consolidation period of time. Whatever the outcomes in specific tourism dominated markets, the industry as a whole can really go in one direction.

One of these cannabinoids is cannabidiol or CBD. When the combination is produced, the terpenes each have an outstanding effect. Each of the noted terpenes has unique fragrances and has particular traits.

    Original Source: What are CBD Gummies Good For?

    When buying CBD gummies or any CBD product, keep in mind that they are meant to be taken as an added supplement. Hemp oil is not intended to diagnose or treat any medical condition.

    Whether you like sweets or just need a little after-meal dessert, CBD gummies will be your new favorite go-to healthy treat. Hemp products such as these delicious gummies are now all the trend. This is after the U.S. Farm Bill was reauthorized last 2018, making industrial hemp legal on the federal level. 

    Hemp-derived CBD, in turn, also became widely available. The cannabis plant in general has been around for quite some time. Eventually, it was banned for public consumption because of its intoxicating side effects. Studies found recently that this is not exactly the case for all cannabis plants.

    Some species, such as hemp grown cannabis, are low in tetrahydrocannabinol or THC. This is the compound responsible for the weed high. In low dosage, it does not all produce psychoactive side effects. Being a byproduct of hemp, CBD is low on THC as well. 

    Keep reading to know where to buy CBD gummies near you and other delicious hemp treats.

    What are CBD Gummies?

    Since the expansion of the hemp industry, CBD products have grown considerably wider in range. The traditional tincture and pills now come in forms of CBD gummies, freeze gels, lip balms, and even pet treats. 

    These new trends are especially popular among the younger generation who are willing to try all sorts of new things.

    CBD for pain are one of the bestselling hemp oil products in the market right now. It comes in the form of bite-sized, soft candy treats in all-natural flavors. They may come in full-spectrum CBD or broad-spectrum CBD. CBD isolate gummies are rare but you can also find them in certain stores.

    Coming in compact 10 mg or 25 mg of CBD, these gummies are also packed with vitamins and other essential nutrients. Ingredients include non-artificial flavoring and real fruit juices. They are also GMO-free and safe to eat at any time of the day.

    CBD Gummies Effects

    CBD oil in general is used to treat a myriad of conditions. From chronic pains such as migraines and joint aches, to soothing anxiety and depression, to promoting a better quality of sleep, CBD can help a great deal. The benefits of CBD gummies are no less potent.

    Interacting with the body’s endocannabinoid system, CBD gummies could also help boost the immune system and overall mood. It can help the body be more receptive to happy hormones such as serotonin. 

    Some studies also suggest that using CBD gummies for pain can help with maintaining homeostasis or an overall balance of the well-being of the human body.

    Are They Safe to Use?

    The best thing about CBD gummies is they can be taken at any time, multiple times, and with double to triple dosing for each time. They are also wholly delicious and perfect if you want to satisfy a sweet tooth. 

    The World Health Organization (WHO) has already released a memo stating that CBD products are non-abusive and non-dependent because they do not possess psychoactive side effects. This means that there are also no worries about overdosing on CBD gummies. 

    Some CBD forms are THC-free while others are not. Be sure to read the labels correctly before making any purchase, in case you have a preference. 

    Though there are supposed benefits of hemp products, these statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

    CBD Gummies Near Me

    If you’re planning on buying, you have probably looked up where to buy CBD gummies near you. There are many in states that openly allow hemp and hemp products. From grocery stores to local pharmaceuticals to hemp dispensaries, you can purchase at any time.

    E-commerce CBD is also a more convenient option. While some take their chances of buying their hemp from Amazon, it can get pretty confusing due to the site’s policies. 

    This can result in unsuspecting consumers getting scammed, purchasing oil products that contain no cannabidiol content at all.

    Reputable third-party online retailers always have their products lab tested with certificates of analysis for purity and potency, ensuring that it contains the ingredients you need. This is how you know the products are safe and made from great quality and homegrown hemp.

    In any case, when buying CBD gummies or any CBD product, keep in mind that they are meant to be taken as an added supplement. Hemp oil is not intended to diagnose or treat any medical condition. Consult with a professional if you have a complicated medical history.
