5 things to look for when purchasing CBD gummies

CBD gummies are a type of CBD edible. What this means is you can swallow it and digest it. The gummies contain CBD, which is a chemical compound that comes from the cannabis plant. Not to worry though, this chemical compound is not the same as THC, despite being derived from the same plant. In fact, our experts have told us that CBD, to be sold legally, can only contain a maximum of 0.3% THC, which means it’s completely safe and you won’t experience any psychoactive side effects.

With CBD gaining a lot of popularity, it’s important that we know, as consumers, what to look out for when purchasing CBD gummies. We need to make sure we are buying the ones that are best suited for us. Here are 5 things that you should look out for when buying CBD gummies:

Not all CBD gummies contain the same ingredients, which might have an overall effect on your experience. You want the ones with the nicest taste and the most healing properties that are going to target your areas of aches, pains or inflammation. Read the label or check the list of ingredients online before purchasing. Make sure that the ingredients are of high-quality and also that they are free from the following: pesticides, mould and heavy metals.

The amount of CBD contained within the gummies is important and should always be stated with each product. If you’re new to CBD gummies, then we recommend starting off with a smaller dosage. The reason for this is that it has been known that beginners who jump to a high dosage instantly, will likely feel some side effects such as nausea, sickness, etc.

If you are aware of dosages you’ve had in the past then of course it’s easier for you to pick the dosage and strength that you know you can handle.

Available Certificate of Analysis
You can also look into the manufacturers and whether or not they share the certificates of their products, as well as receipts of third party lab results. This will help to confirm and reassure customers that their CBD gummies are completely safe for human consumption. It will also prove that the right measures are in place to prove that no shortcuts have been taken and the company is serious about producing a high quality CBD product.

Serving Size
If you are a beginner to CBD gummies, and still even so if you have had them before, it’s always more reassuring and convenient if the company provides information on recommended serving sizes.

Not all products will have these sorts of recommendations on their product information but it can help customers when it comes to taking CBD gummies, knowing what amount to begin with and what is safe. Especially when CBD is still making a name for itself in the industry and studies are still battling with all the misconceptions around CBD that people who don’t know the product have created. 

Third-party labs
Finally, we recommend choosing a product that must be trialled and outsourced to labs in order to prove they are safe and contain no contaminants. This will be so important and having this stage will be the icing on the cake for customers to know what they are taking is categorically safe and reliable.
